Annapurna Region Trek

As the name itself ‘ Anna –Purna’ which literally means abundance of food grains clearly depicts the region of the most fertile land and the most colorful hardworking people living in the region. Hence, famine has rarely occurred in such a diverse geography where agriculture has remained the main profession. However, keeping domesticated animals used to be the alternative way of maintaining the living standard for so many centuries as the region comprises the grassland, forests, green hills and never ending flow of water resources as perfect habitats for the wildlife and domesticated ones.

When it comes to tourism, it hasn’t been even half a century that the region opened for tourism whilst the region has so much to offer to nature lovers and cultural scholars. Since the opening millions of tourists have visited the region for number of reasons and in no time the region found itself as one of the most visited places in Nepal and in the global market as well.

What makes the region so popular is that the region offers the tourists with amazing trail routes in a setting where the scenic beauty mesmerizes everyday or becomes even better the very next day. The combination of valleys, forests, hills and the Himalayan ranges high up in the sky along the trail would certainly create a feeling of ‘can I stay here a  little bit longer’ but the certainty in one’s soul, there must be another even better place of beauty, will drag and fuel to move no matter how pinned one could be to the very place or how fatigued and tired one could have been.
