Annapurna Region Trekking in Nepal

The word Annapurna is a Sanskrit word. It has two words Anna + Purna separately. Where “Anna” stands for GRAIN and “Purna” stands for FULL, thus the meaning for the word is “Full OF GRAINS” in common Nepali language. The word Annapurna is also popular as “GODDESS OF THE HARVEST” in Nepal.

Annapurna Trek is one of the most famous and popular trekking routes in the central-north part of Nepal. This trek is still considered as one of the best trekking routes in Nepal, even though constructions are going on.

Sight-Seeing and Trip Challenges

7 to 21 days long, Annapurna trek takes you through distinct regional scenery of rivers, flora, fauna and above all – mountains. The trek is demanding for those who want to face new challenges. And the challenging trip is every bit worthy of the scenery you will witness. Eagle Treks and Expedition and its guides will make this trek easier and memorable for your lifetime.

Weather in the Annapurna Region

The Annapurna Trek is filled with the aura and energy of the trekkers. The lower region of Annapurna is generally warm. The temperature starts to decrease once we start getting high up to the mountains. The higher region has a temperature just like any other mountain regions. But unlike other mountain regions, the Annapurna Trek is believed to visitable all round the year.

TREK WITH EAGLE

Annapurna Trek in Nepal goes counter-clockwise from Besisahar to Nayapul. It reaches its summit in Throng-La (pass) at the height of 5416m, or 17,769 feet. The route goes past the following mountains: Manaslu (an 8,000-plus meter peak), Langtang HimalAnnapurna II and IV, Annapurna III and Gangapurna, and, of course, Annapurna I and Dhaulagiri — passing through the world’s deepest gorge in between those two 8,000-plus meter peaks.

The Famous

Poon Hill, at the end of the trek, affords views of two +8000 m high mountains South Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. The Fishtail Mountain is only 6993 m but looks like taller than those two can be seen from the same point. Annapurna trek also goes through Buddhist villages and Hindu holy sites, most notably the village of Muktinath. It is a holy site for both Buddhists and Hindus, and Braga, one of the oldest monasteries in the region.

All about The East

The eastern portion of the trek follows the Marsyangdi River upstream, to its source near the village of Manang. To get there several days of up-hill hiking are required. Then the route goes over the pass, a grueling day of hiking, and back down to the other side. There it meets up with the Kali Gandaki River.

TRIP INFORMATION

We will have the privilege of passing through five of the most popular districts in the country on the trek; Kaski (known for its numerous amount of lakes), Manang (known for its famous Tilicho lake), Mustang (known for its adventurous trekking and beautiful natural scenery), Myagdi, and Lamjung.

Lamjung, Myagdi, and Kaski of the lower elevations are both predominantly Hindu and with lush green subtropical valleys with villages and terraced farming. Trekking through such an environment will leave you feeling blessed when you breathe in such a fresh year. Manang and Mustang districts are of the higher elevations and are predominantly Tibetan Buddhists.

Village Settlements and Culture

The Manang people are Gurung (not Tibetan descent). They are very proud of their unique cultural heritage and merging of lower land Gurung and Tibetan cultural influences. People of Mustang identify themselves a lot closer to Tibet.

The Mustang region has actually been part of Tibet in history. Mustang also is one of the last places in the world that boasts the view of ancient Bonpo Religion in action. Villages to note for Bonpo are Thini and Lupra near Jomsom, and Nargon near Kobang.

We can also address the Annapurna Trek in Nepal as “teahouse trek” (lodge to lodge). Most of the villages have modern lodges with restaurants for lodging and foods along the entire route. You are expected for breakfast and dinner in the same lodge where you are spending the night.

The Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP; permit) and the Trekkers’ Information Management System (TIMS) is compulsory to visit the Annapurna region.
