Annapurna

Annapurna

is a series of peaks in the Himalayas, a 55 km (34 mi)-long massif of which the highest point, Annapurna I, stands at 8091m, making it the 10th-highest summit in the world and one of the 14 "eight-thousanders".
It is located east of a great gorge cut through the Himalayas by the Kali Gandaki River, which separates it from the Dhaulagiri massif. (Dhaulagiri I lies 34 km west of Annapurna I.)
Annapurna is a Sanskrit name which literally means "full of food" (feminine form), but is normally translated as Goddess of the Harvests. In Hinduism, Annapurna is a goddess of fertility and agriculture.
The entire massif and surrounding area are protected within the 7,629 sq. km Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP),
the first and largest conservation area in Nepal,
established in 1986 by the King Mahendra Trust for Nature Conservation. The Annapurna Conservation Area is home to several world-class treks,
including the Annapurna Circuit.

WE ALSO ORGANIZE EXCLUSIVE TREKKING BEYOND ANNAPURNA

Upper Mustang Upper Mustang, being in the Himalayan rain shadow, is one of the regions in Nepal that are suitable for trekking during the monsoons.
During this time, the upper Kali Gandaki valley is still quite dry with only occasional rainfall. The Mustang trek is not particularly difficult, the highest point reached being only 3,800 meters,
but the conditions at times can be arduous. Mustang is cold in winter and is always windy and dusty through the year.
Winter treks are best avoided due to harsh weather. To trek in Upper Mustang is a rare privilege.
Here you will experience the way of life of true mountain people, who have been cut off from the rest of Nepal for years and even until recent times
had an officially recognized king. In many ways, a trek into Upper Mustang is similar to trekking in Tibet, as geographically it is a part of the Tibetan plateau.
The district of Mustang was, until 1950, a separate kingdom within the boundaries of Nepal.
The last king, the Raja of Mustang, still has his home in the ancient capital known as Lo Manthang.
We provide the following programmes for Upper Mustang region :
