Nepal’s magnificent Annapurna Region is renowned for trekking, lined as it is by awe-inspiring mountains, dramatic valleys and open plains – not to mention the occasional hilltop shrine or rural village too. This particular tour will take you far away from the main walking routes and tourist trails, delving deep into Annapurna’s ethereal wilderness on a truly intrepid adventure, with local Sherpas helping along the way.
The appeal of trekking off-the-beaten path is getting all the highlights, Dhaulagiri Range mountain views and incredible sunrises found on Annapurna’s better-known trails, such as the Annapurna Circuit and Annapurna Basecamp Trek, but without the crowds. Small mountain villages found throughout – Ghandruk and Tadapani among them, also add something special to this experience.
In fact from start to finish you can look forward to beautifully varied terrain, hiking through forests, exposed passes and along tight hillside walkways from one day to the next. It all adds up to a remarkable adventure, one that involves blissfully remote lodges, meeting local artisans and witnessing incredible scenery and sunsets too.
