Annapurna Region Trek
The Name “Annapurna” came after the Mount. Annapurna,
which is the 10th highest mountain in the world.
Annapurna is a series of peaks in the Himalaya, a
55-km-long Massif whose highest point, Annapurna I,
stands at 8,091 m (26,538 ft). It is located east of a
great gorge cut through the Himalaya by the most famous
river, Kali Gandaki and which separates it from the
Pokhara’s bewitching beauty has been the subject of many travel writers. Its pristine air, spectacular backdrop of snowy peaks, serene lakes and surrounding greenery make it ‘the jewel in the Himalaya’, a place of remarkable natural beauty. With the magnificent Annapurna range forming the backdrop and the serenity of three major lakes – Phewa, Rupa and Begnas – Pokhara is the ultimate destination for relaxation. Pokhara Valley, gateway to the Annapurna region where many a trekker finds his Shangri-la, sits high on the list of ‘must visit’ places in Nepal.
