It would be hard to beat this introduction to trekking in the Annapurnas. Heading north from Pokhara towards the great Annapurna massif, we trek through traditional Hindu villages that enjoy spectacular views of the mountains. The trails take us through lush oak and rhododendron forests, and we camp in serene locations that showcase dramatic views of the Annapurna Range. All this in the company of our magnificent crew whose friendship, sense of humour and caring nature will ensure your trek is a rewarding and memorable one.
