North of Pokhara, Nepal's spectacular diversity appears at its
finest the deep valleys and high mountains encircling the giant
Annapurna Himal embrace a wide range of peoples and terrain,
from subtropical jungle to a high, dry landscape resembling the
Tibetan Plateau. This is the most popular trekking region,
attracting over 75% of all trekkers (more than 30.000 annually).
It's also among the tamest areas, with excellent lodges lining
the main routes. Finding Nepal beneath the flood of trekkers can
be difficult, but the scenery and culture are top-notch, and you
can avoid the peak-season crush and still get fine weather and
Two main trails follow river valleys in relatively easy ascents:
up the Kali Gandaki to Jomosom and Muktinath, and up the
Marsyangdi to Manang. By crossing a high but straightforward
pass, the Thorung La, these trails can be joined into the
classic Annapurna Circuit. As the land climbs, thatch-roofed
mud-walled huts are replaced by flat-roofed stone houses, and
people change from farmers to herders, Hindus to Buddhists. The
Annapurna region dramatically reveals the highland/lowland
cultural and geographic frontier running across Nepal. Mountain
views are frequent and good, and if they don't equal the
heart-of-the-mountains feeling of Khumbu, there's the Annapurna
Sanctuary, a secluded high-altitude hollow ringed by huge peaks.
