The Annapurna region is synonymous with the greatest adventure and exploration exploits undertaken anywhere on earth. Annapurna I (8,021m) was the first of the 8,000m giants to be climbed by a hugely under-resourced French team. Their epic adventure was captured in the classic book “Annapurna”.  The mighty south face of the mountain was deemed the greatest challenge of the Himalayas and was conquered by a British team in the 1970's.

A trek into the Annapurna sanctuary not only follows in the footsteps of these exploits but is also an unsurpassed introduction to what Himalayan adventure is all about. This trek encompasses Kathmandu, Nepali rural life, traditional villages that have changed little since the first European explores ventured through, with wilderness landscapes and incredible panoramas.

We climb through ancient oak and rhododendron forest, cross raging rivers and pass thundering waterfalls, and always towering perilously high above us are the Himalayan mountains that take your breath away.  The iconic Fishtail Peak (Machapuchare - 6,993m), the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Hiunchuli (6,441m) reign over this enchanting landscape. For a spectacular, enthralling experience this trek is hard to beat.
This trek is graded moderate and with only 11 days trekking is short by Himalayan standards. We will be staying in local tea houses which provide basic but comfortable accommodation. The higher tea houses are heated by a central pot-belly stove but have no heated sleeping quarters.

TESTIMONIALS
CARL BEVAN
(Annapurna Base Camp- Charity trek )

"They look after the welfare of the trekkers every step of the way with advice on kit, health, exercise regimes leading up to the treks and of course when in country. The routes are often not the obvious crowded routes on mountains such as Kilimanjaro but ones with the best scenery and that give all the best chance of getting to the summit and often taking an extra day to support acclimatization. Client welfare and getting the best out of the treks is clearly of the utmost importance. "
