This region is protected by Annapurna conservation Area Project (ACAP) which was established in 1986 under the guidance of the King Mahendra Trust for Nature Conservation. The project covers the whole Annapurna range, covers an area of 7629 sq. km. and is home to over 100000 residents of different cultural and linguistic groups. ACAP is rich in biodiversity and is a treasure house for 1226 species of flowering plants, 102 mammals, 474 birds, 39 reptiles and 22 amphibians. In an inventive advance to environmental protection, it was declared a “conservation area” instead of a national park. A large number of people live within the protected region. 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.
