Annapurna Circuit Trekking

General Overview

Trekking in Nepal was started from Annapurna region about five decade ago. The trekking was introduced by ex Gurkha colonel Jimmy Roberts. While trekking was introduced we had to travel with full of equipment. Such as lodging (tents), foods and all kitchen utensils with plenty of manpower together. These days most of the trekking route has basic hotels. We can trek hotel to hotel and they are able to supply all the basic need for trekkers. Some places along the route we can get some modern amenities too.
