This trek is popular as it offers a great variety of beautiful landscapes, nature and culture of the central mountains of Nepal and a mix of cultures unmatched by any other treks in Nepal. The trail starts in the lowland villages, where rice terraces cut through the mountainsides. It continues into the Annapurna Himal, where you will see colorful villages, green forests, bamboo jungles, rivers and cascades rich with birds and animal life. Prominent is the South face of Mt. Annapurna South (7219m) as well as Mt. Machhapuchhare (6993m).
This is one of the most beautiful treks that combine easy walking with majestic scenery at an easy to handle altitude as you gradually climb uphill. The peaks of Annapurna South and Hiunchuli emerge from behind the foothills. Pastures and cultivated fields soon give way to deep forests of oak, bamboo and rhododendron. The trail finally stumbles across moraines and reaches Annapurna Sanctuary from where you are presented with an undeniably beautiful and unimaginable 360 degree view of the Annapurna mountain ranges including Annapurna 1 (8091m) which is the 10th highest in the world.

To enable all expedition members to acclimatize well and hence maximize their chances of success, our expedition programs are prepared with sufficient time for acclimatization. Adaptation to the altitude takes time and there can be no short-cuts, even if supplementary oxygen is used in the final stages. The atmospheric pressure at the base camp is half of that at the sea level. A thorough program of acclimatization is built into the itinerary which consists of regulated height ascents, followed by descents and rests before the final ascent to the summit. This will prevent the climbers to get rid from altitude sickness.
