Annapurna Trek

The Annapurna region is situated in middle north Nepal and is defined by the Kali Gandaki River to the west, the Marsyangdi and Dudh Khola valleys to the east, the Pokhara valley to the south and the Himalaya foothills that run along the Nepal-Tibetan border to the north. The wide variety of flora and fauna, the ever changing views of the mountains and of course the trekker- friendly climate all makes this a truly memorable experience.

STPL offers you 4-days and 8-days trek in the Annapurna Region. In the four days trek, you will trek to Syaglung (3,500 ft), a Gurung village, and is attractive with its white and ochre houses. The mountain views stretch from Dhaulagiri in the west to the Manaslu range in the east. You will also trek to Chisapani. In the 8-days trek, you will trek to Ghorepani, a welcome watering spot for horses, mules, and ponies that carry loads between Pokhara and Jomsom. Early morning excursion to Pun Hill will give you an outstanding panorama of Dhaulagiri, Tukche, Nilgiri, Annapurna I and South, Hiunchuli and Glacier Dome.
