The Annapurna region has long been Nepal’s most popular trekking destination because of its beautiful mountain scenery, culturally rich and varied villages, and relatively easy access. Two of the four mountains over 8,000 meters in elevation – Annapurna, the 5th highest mountain in the world, and Dhaulagiri, the 7th highest mountain in the world - lie in the Annapurna region, and can be viewed from several trails. Many ethnic groups inhabit the region as well, and trekking through the region offers an opportunity to experience various Tibetan-influenced and other cultures. Trekking trails in the region offer something for hikers of every skill and experience level – from easy short-distance hikes between villages around Jomsom, where the regional airport is, to the full 21-day Annapurna Circuit. Hundreds of villages are scattered throughout the region and line all of the area’s trekking trails, making the Annapurna trek one of the most convenient and easy-to-plan areas for trekking. Trekkers can trek “teahouse” style and stay in lodges in the various villages along the trail, taking only the basics of what they need. Teahouses in the Annapurna region are cozy and comfortable after a long day of trekking, equipped with western-style bathrooms, wifi, beds, warm meals, and even apple pie and apple whisky. In addition a new road runs through the region as well, facilitating transport back south to Pokhara or to other villages. In short, ABC trek is a great place to go for a trekking adventure at any level.
*Some villages and roads were damaged by the earthquake in the spring of 2015 or affected by landslides that followed tremors. However, all trails in the region have been cleared, bridges are strong and have been re-inspected, and lodges have been rebuilt. The Annapurna region is 100% open and ready for trekkers this 2016.
