Annapurna Region

The bona fide Annapurna region exemplifies a utopia with its myriad of mountains, an antediluvian lifestyle of its inhabitants, and the mythical conundrum in the center of Upper Mustang. Flanked by the soaring 8000-meter giants like Annapurna (8091m) and Dhaulagiri (8167m), the Annapurna region oozes with thrill and is definitely on the bucket list of any traveler that wishes to dwell amidst its deep gorges and undisturbed forests.

Located in between the roaring rivers of Marsayangdi and Kali Gandaki, the Annapurna region is a dream come true for hikers as it proudly displays icy peaks like Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna II (7937m), and many other soaring peaks. A vibrant display of Chorten-laden trails symbolizes the influence of Buddhism and the Gurung settlements of Ghandruk, Tolka, and Chhomrong gives you glimpses of rural life in Nepal. Normally the journey commences from Pokhara and later steps in the Annapurna conservation area. One can choose to take miniature tours inside the Pokhara valley to observe the Rupa, Fewa, and Begnas lakes or treks like Ghorepani Poon Hill trek and Ghandruk Trek can also be taken. Take the Annapurna Base Camp trek, Annapurna Circuit trek, or the Annapurna Panorama trek to fully understand the magical property of this region. The highly religious and divinely powerful Muktinath Temple resides in this region and is a dream of every Hindu and Buddhist pilgrim to pray here. The isolated kingdom of Lo Manthang or Upper Mustang intrigues travelers with its Tibetan influenced lifestyle and cliff caves. The tectonic rock formation along with a surreal view of nearby mountains and Saligram filled rivers make it one of a kind. Take the Jomsom Muktinath trek or the Tilicho Base Camp trek to find the true meaning of natural enigma and feel the tranquil waters soothe your soul. To the thrill seekers, peak climbing to Pisang (6091m) and Chulu (6429m) are also viable options. Moreover, paragliding, bungee jumping, rafting, and boat-rides are other activities famously available in and around Pokhara.
