Nepal Trekking Routes

Annapurna Region

Annapurna Region is one of the best areas located in the north-central part of Nepal offering varieties of trails for all kinds of trekkers around the world. It is the home of diverse trekking routes. Annapurna Base Camp is one of the well-known destinations.

Annapurna I (8091m), the major attraction of the region is situated at the center. At the west of Annapurna I, another eight-thousander Dhaulagiri (8167m) stands. The Kali Gandaki River flows between these two giant mountains creating the wonderful Kali-Gandaki gorge which is also the world’s deepest gorge.

Mount Annapurna is the dangerous and deadliest mountain in the world. The unpredictable climate, the high-velocity wind, and snowfall throughout the year are some of its reasons. Mt. Annapurna is supposed to be climbed first among the 14 peaks of the world over 8000 meters.

Besides, Annapurna I and Dhaulagiri, the region includes some other Nepal’s famous mountains like Mt. Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) and colossal Annapurna Massif. The panoramic views of the terraced farmland, snow-covered mountains, and scenic natural beauty attract thousands of visitors from around the world every year.
