Dear Babu,
We would like to thank you for your marvellous organisation which ensured that our Annapurna Sanctuary trek (Sept 2011) went smoothly. Shonam was a great guide and Mr Ali always raced ahead to ensure that we could get the best rooms in the guest house. They were both very professional, going out of their way to please us and giving great advice on the best meals to have and how to approach the walk to minimise altitude sickness.

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.
