Trekking the Annapurna Region

Annapurna trekking region in Nepal has been widely recognized as a naturalist paradise. The Annapurna trekking/tour region is a famous dramatic place for trekkers. One can do a 2 to 21 days trekking/tour in the Annapurna region. Moreover, the upper sub-alpine steppes harbor rare snow leopards and blue sheep. 

Other areas of the Annapurna trekking region protect bird species such as the multi-colored Impeyan, kokla, and blood pheasant, amongst many other birds, butterflies, and insects. Many plants native to Nepal are found in the forest of the Annapurna trekking region. The Annapurna conservation area has 100 varieties of orchids and some of the richest temperate rhododendron forests in the world. Moreover, the Annapurna Conservation Area has preserved thousands of exquisite birds and animals.

For thousands of years, people of diverse ethnic backgrounds have scratched a livelihood out of Annapurnas steep hillsides. Moreover, the advent of tourism and the phenomenal rise in the human population has triggered a process of environmental deterioration. In 1968 Nepal’s former King Mahendra Trust for Nature Conservation launched the Annapurna Conservation Area Project.

With international support, the project aims to integrate environmental conservation with a development that can sustain the area’s reserve base. The project aspires to improve local living standards, protect the environment and develop a more “sensitive” form of tourism. One of ACAP’s (Annapurna Conservation Area Project) most important functions has been to create and teach courses on environmental education in local schools and communities.
