The Annapurna region, in the country's central north, is a popular place to go trekking. The Annapurna Mountain range, with multiple peaks above 8,000 meters, is located here, along with many other magnificent mountain ranges and breathtaking scenery.
Famous for its stunning alpine landscape, the Annapurna region is home to snowy peaks, verdant forests, and quaint communities. Various ethnic groups including Gurungs, Thakalis, and Magar call this area home; each has its own history, customs, and language.
The Annapurna Circuit trek is the most well-known trek in the area, as it passes through numerous picturesque villages, verdant forests, and high mountain passes, all while providing breathtaking panoramas of the Annapurna range. The Annapurna Base Camp trip, which leads to the base of the Annapurna massif, and the Poon Hill Trek, a shorter trip with spectacular views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Mountain ranges, are two more famous trekking routes in the Annapurna region. Naar Phu Valley leads through hidden valleys, across highland fields and into traditional Tibetan-style villages, where one can learn about the locals' rich history and way of life.
With its magnificent natural beauty and rich cultural heritage, Nepal's Annapurna region is a must-see for trekking and adventure enthusiasts.
