The magnificent Annapurna Region was first opened to visitors in 1977. In Sanskrit, the word Annapurna is a feminine word which implies " full of sustenance " and is often translated as Goddess of the Harvests. In Hindu tradition, Annapurna is a goddess of healthy food and nourishment. As a trekking destination, the region named for this goddess indeed offers scenery which can only be described as divine. The mountain is known as Annapurna I, at 8091 meters is the highest member of a 55 kilometer-long massif. It is the fourteenth of the peaks in the world which exceed 8,000 meters in height and is considered the tenth " must-climb" peak for mountaineers. Visitors to the Annapurna region will also enjoy glorious views of Annapurna II, III and IV, Gangapurna, and Annapurna South, all of which rise about 7200 meters, as well as Mts. Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Fishtail and many others.
The Annapurna Range, separated by the Dhaulagiri massif by the Kali Gandaki River, anchors the trekking region often regarded as the premier classic trekking region of the entire world. Located north of the city of Pokhara, it attracts about half of all trekkers to our beautiful land. (In case you are curious, the Everest region draws about 35%, while the remaining 15% visit various other zones, to be described below.) The Annapurna region, in addition to the renown its spectacular scenery commands, is also home to a vast variety of flora and fauna, including over 100 mammals, 60 reptiles, 450 birds, and many types of rhododendrons.
