Annapurna trekking region in Nepal has been wildly recognized as a naturalist’s paradise. Annapurna trekking/tour region is a very popular area that offers a dramatic trekking experience for trekkers from all over world.

This is a 9-day trek but one can do 2 to 21 days trekking/tour in the Annapurna region. The upper sub-alpine steppe environment harbors some of the rarest animals including snow leopards and blue sheep. Other areas of Annapurna trekking region are home to bird species such as the multi-coloured Impeyan, kokla, blood pheasant amongst a multitude of other birds, butterflies and insects. Many plant species native to Nepal are found in the forest of Annapurna trekking region. The Annapurna conservation area has 100 varieties of orchids and some of the richest temperate rhododendron forests in the world.

For thousands of years people of diverse ethnic backgrounds have scratched a livelihood out of Annapurna's steep hillsides. The advent of tourism and the phenomenal rise in human population has triggered environmental deterioration. In 1968 Nepal’s King Mahendra Trust for Nature Conservation launched the Annapurna Conservation Area Project in order to protect this pristine gift from nature.

Enjoy this 9-day trek through some of the most spectacular hills and mountains in the entire world.

“My wife and I just finished our 9 (extended to 10) day trek from Pokhara to Annapurna Base Camp. We had Raj as our guide and Suna as our porter and both were great; as was Nepal Lion Treks. As soon as we landed in Kathmandu Raj picked us up at the airport and drove us to our hotel. He let us get settled in and then took us over to their office in Thamel, a short walk away. The manager, Mr. Shiva, was very kind and accommodating and added an extra day for us in Pokhara after our trek to paraglide and explore, at a good price. He was also very responsive in coordinating with our guide Raj to ensure we were good with our flight back from Pokhara to Kathmandu.

As for the ABC trek itself, just do it. Its incredible. You're going to want to take pictures of everything. And Raj was fantastic. He is very friendly, knowledgeable, and made sure we were taken care of every step of the way. Suna, our porter, was also extremely helpful throughout the trek, and one day even ran ahead to secure us rooms for the night in an overbooked lodge. The hike is breathtakingly beautiful and we met a ton of cool people from all over the world along the way.

Bottom line is you could do this trek on your own, but because we booked through Lion Tours, we never had to worry about anything. Our rooms were booked, no negotiating anything, our meals and drinks were paid for, and we didn't worry about permits and transportation. We also felt safer and more confident in parts of the trek with someone who knew the terrain. It made the whole experience so much less stressful. My wife and I had such a great time and are already thinking about when we can get back to Nepal to try a different trek and we'd definitely book through Nepal Lion Tours again.”

“This is a great trek for someone who wants to get up close with some beautiful mountains. The trek can be done in a shorter time as well if you don't have nine days. It was December when I did it and the views were crystal clear! I highly recommend this area.”
