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.

“I had a fantastic trek with Nepal Lion Tours. I did the Annapurna Trek. My guide and porter we’re so cool, patient, and helpful from the start to the end of the trek. The guide and porter were fun to hike with and they made sure all my needs were taken care of along the way. The places they took me were beautiful and the trek was challenging but not at a pace to be uncomfortable. I think Annapurna Trek is a good trek for someone who has some experience trekking or has none and wants to try it out.”
