The Annapurna Circuit Trek is a trekker’s paradise, with the trail passing through the 7629 sq km Annapurna Conservation Area - that also happens to the largest in Nepal. The Annapurna Circuit trek trail heads through the world’s deepest gorge, the Kali Gandaki, in amongst amazing pine and rhododendron forests, via culturally rich and traditional Tibetan Buddhist Gurung and Magyar villages, and to the well-known viewpoint on Poon Hill where the views will blow your socks off! The highest point reached on the trek is when we cross Thorong La Pass (5,416m/17,769ft). You will pass many villages, such as: Syange (1,130m) via Besisahar, Dharapani (1,860m), Chame (2650m), Pisang (3,300m), Manang (3,500m), Yak Kharka (4,050m), Thorong Phedi (4,500m) and then to the highest point on the trek - Thorong La Pass (5,416m).

The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is a photographer’s paradise where the views from Poon Hill (3210m) are some of the most stunning in the entire Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges. There are many soaring snow-covered peaks, such as Annapurna South (7219m), Machapuchare (6993m), Hiunchuli, Annapurna III, Dhampus peak and Dhulariri II. You will also enjoy visiting the Gurung and Magar villages where you will see and feel the genuine warmth of the locals while passing through the villages of Ulleri, Ghorepani, and Ghandruk.

Tilicho Lake Trek is an area of rough and wild beauty. The high altitude route via Tilicho Lake is demanding. From Manang, the trails to the lake are gradually being improved and there is a semi-operational lodge at the base of the first pass meaning that we could visit the lake as a side-trip without camping. This side trip provides good acclimatization for crossing the Thorung La. During the season two lodges are generally open at Tilicho Base Camp. Norma trekkers should stay in Khangsar to acclimatize and then head via Thare monastery to Tilicho Base Camp.

The Mardi Himal Trek allows you the opportunity to trek along the trails that lead through verdantly rich forests and wooded acreages of rhododendron trees blossoming with the ethereal bloom of the flowers in colors of red, white and pink. Trudging through the alpine forests and chartreuse vegetation, you would be presented with a green canopy under the cerulean sky; the ambiance of the isolated trekking trail providing a soft hazy patina in its celestial environment. Passing along many dainty settlements and villages, you would also get the opportunity to encounter the local people and observe their unique and idiosyncratic customs and cultures and their day to day life at the bosoms of the lush hillocks and the secluded mountains in the Mardi Himal trek route.

The Khopra Danda trekking is one of the awesome rural trek newly open trail in Annapurna region. This trek is suitable for all opinioned trekkers. Also, this route is connected with the Annapurna Base Camp. The way to Khopra trek diverts from the main trekking trail of Ghorepani. The path goes through deeply lush thick pine, oak, rhododendron and bamboo forest with magnificent views of Himalayan panorama which includes Mt. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna (I, II, III and south), Hiunchuli, Machhapuchhare, Lamjung Himal, and Nilgiri.
