Annapurna

Annapurna

Treks, Tours and Multi-Activity Adventures

The world famous Annapurna Circuit Trek and Annapurna Sanctuary Trek should need no introduction. But, there's a lot more to Annapurna trekking and adventures than just these well worn trails. With easy access from Pokhara and varied options to suit most abilities the breathtakingly beautiful Annapurna region is justifiably the most popular part of the Nepal Himalayas.

  • The Annapurna foothills also present opportunities to enjoy walks at more modest altitudes too. 

    As well as low altitude Annapurna treks, it's possible to undertake an Annapurna short trek and even go trekking off the beaten track too. The classic Himalayan sunrise from a Poon Hill Trek is a perennial favourite and an abundance of trekking lodges (aka teahouses) in the region means you can enjoy Annapurna treks ranging from challenging to some rather easy treks.

    A small number of higher standard luxury trekking lodges also exist in the Modi Khola Valley, making it possible to enjoy a pleasing horeshoe circuit hike of this stunning valley and have a proper bed and en-suite facilities every night.

    But, it's not all trekking nowadays!

    We also have our own unique and innovative way of journeying through the Annapurna's - by bike and by raft (and on foot too).
