The Annapurna region is Nepal’s the most popular trekking destination with four of the world’s highest mountains, and the world’s deepest valley within it’s boundaries. Gateway to the region is the lovely lakeside town of Pokhara, an idyllic place to relax after a long trek. Central Nepal is dominated by the Annapurna Himal and the village of Pokhara. There are three major trekking routes in central Nepal: to Jomsom, to Annapurna Sanctuary, and a circuit of the Annapurna Himal itself. Pokhara is also a good starting place for short treks of one to four days, including the “Royal” trek. Mustang is also geographically a part of the Annapurna region, but because treks to Mustang are subject to special restrictions, this is described it in the separate page on restricted area treks. About two-thirds of the trekkers in Nepal visit the Annapurna region. The area is easily accessible, hotels in the hills are plentiful, and treks here offer good scenery of both high mountains and lowland villages.
