"We did the Annapurna Circuit in October 2011. The weather is phenomenal and the tour was excellent. Babu from unique path trekking arranged everything for us, including overlooked travel insurance. Apart from the devastating scenery, our guides and porters made the trip ridiculously awesome. Bharat is the man, always quick with a joke and to light up smoke, full of smiles and passion for the mountains, it rubbed off on us and actually energised us during the really hard parts. Cutting through Thorang Pass was one of my life’s greatest highlights and I would recommend it to anyone, sooner rather than later."

Annapurna Trekking

Overview

Annapurna trekking has been wildly recognized as a naturalist's paradise. The upper sub-alpine steppe environment harbors some of the rare snow leopards and blue sheep. Other areas of the region protect bird species such as the multi-coloured Impeyan, kokla, blood pheasant amongst a multitude of other birds, butterflies and insects. Many plants native to Nepal are found in this forest. The conservation area has 100 varieties of orchids and some of the richest temperate rhododendron forest in the world.

For thousands of years people of diverse ethnic backgrounds have scratched a livelihood out of its steep hillsides. The advent of tourism and the phenomenal rise in human population has triggered a process of environmental deterioration. In 1968 Nepal's King Mahendra Trust for Nature Conservation launched the Annapurna Conservation Area Project.
