Our 21 day trek with Unique Path through the Annapurna Circuit was excellent, everything was well organized, and our questions were all answered both by email beforehand, and after arrival in Nepal. Our guide and porter, Shyam and Prim, were professional, knowledgeable and more importantly, FUN! We had a great time, were able to learn a lot about the local culture, nature and see many beautiful sights. After completing our trek, we also organized a 3 day trip to Chitwan National Park through Unique Path, and were very impressed with the quality of our hotel, guide and transportation there as well.

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.
