Annapurna Region Peak Climbing begins with a trek through the most popular trekking region in Nepal. The Annapurna region is outstanding for its extreme constrasts of landscape and diversity of vegetation, ethnicity and culture.
The Annapurna massif stretches 40km long in the north of central Nepal. Nine peaks, of over 7000 meters, project from the massif, the tallest being Annapurna I, 8091m.The Annapurna region is bordered by the Kali Gandaki river to the west, the Marshyangdi and Dudh Khola valley to the east, the Pokhara valley to the south and the trans- Himalayan range that runs along the Nepal-Tibet (China) border to the north.
Your approach trek will begin in the dripping, subtropical, bamboo jungles of the low lands and climb into to the dry, barren, windswept deserts of the north. As the elevation increases, mud houses surrounded by terraced fields are replaced by stone houses and pasture land. Mixed caste Hindus inhabit the south, whereas the hill tribes in the north are mainly Tibetan-Buddhist.
I would like to higly recommend Annapurna Foothills Trekking for the great adventure they provided to me during the 3 weeks I spent with them! The trekking and climbing guides were excellent, always available and paying a special attention to any of my requests. I expect to come back again…Haidar Navi
My wife and I trekked the Manaslu Circuit with Ngima's Annapurna Foothills in late 2014. The trip, from start to finish, was nothing short of spectacular. Ngima and Tenzin were the warmest, most gracious hosts, and showed single-minded devotion to ensuring the trip's success, safety, and joyfulness.Merrick Kingston
