Annapurna region

Central Nepal is dominated by Annapurna Himal and the town of Pokhara. There are three major treks in thei region: to Jomson, to the Annapurna Sanctuary and the whole Annapurna circuit. The region around Pokhara offers also a variety of shorter treks like the Ghandruk or Tatopani treks.

The Trek to the ancient kingdom Lo in upper Mustang is a special experience, but there are no lodges or hotels and you have to get a special permit to go there.

About two third of the trekkers who visited Nepal in 2000 trekked in the Annapurna region. The area is easily accssible, hotels in the hills are plentiful and treks offer good scenery of both high mountains and lowland villages.
