Annapurna trekking has also been identified as one of the world’s best trekking route according to a survey carried out by Modern Maturity (USA).

Views of lush, fertile farmland pristine forest, snow-covered mountains, and exploring of many ethnic communities all add up to a diverse range of experiences that make this region one of the most well-known trekking destinations in Nepal.

Annapurna region is also popular as the land of biodiversity in the world. It is the largest protected area in Nepal that provides safe harbor to the unique biodiversity in combination with the multicultural and multi-ethnic diversity.

With the aim to achieving a balance between the environmental conservation and social economic development, through people’s participation, the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) was launched from 1986 under the aegis of the national trust for nature conservation. ACAP is managed and run by a board of trustees.

The land has become as fragile as its diversity and its resources are put under great pressure due to population growth, poverty, and tourism. The project acts as a new approach in the protected area management with its new modalities based on the integrated conservation and development programs. Nepal Government has given the trust the full mandate for the management of the Annapurna Conservation Area Project. Please have a look below for Annapurna region treks that we offer.
