Around this region, treks generally begin from the town of Pokhara, south of the Annapurna Conservation Area.
The Dhauligiri area is separated from the Annapurna region by the Kaligandaki Valley, reputedly the world’s deepest river gorge. Annapurna Sanctuary, another popular trek, has been designated as a nature reserve to conserve its unique natural heritage.
Treks here can vary from the very lovely and popular Ghorepani-Poon Hill trek, to the more challenging route of the Annapurna Circuit and Annapurna Base Camp.
Mt. Everest has several names: Situated in the Solukhumbu Region, its also known as Sagarmatha and Chomolungma, both which translate into poetic renditions of “The Roof of the World.” An extremely undulating and craggy land, this is the home of the Sherpas. They are famous for their skill in mountaineering as well as their friendliness and hospitality.
Throughout this region you will discover historic monasteries, numerous villages in very remote areas, and scenery that is unlike anywhere else. Glacier lakes such as Gokyo are nothing short of breathtaking, and the views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Makulu are spectacular. Trekking in this region is, simply put, sublime.

The Langtang Valley is often cited as the most beautiful national park in Nepal. It is full of a wide variety of flora and fauna and covers a wide range of landscapes. A trek here will take you through lush forest, past waterfalls and steep cliffs… as well as high, snow covered mountain peaks. You can sample cheese made by monks at almost 12,000 feet, see yak grazing in wide-open fields and dine after after a long day’s trek surrounded by the majestic Langtang range of mountains. For those wanting an extra challenge, you can climb Tsangbu Ri (pictured), and at the top you’ll be face to face with some beautiful mountain peaks.
The forbidden land of Mustang is located in the north of the main Himalayan chain, between the snow-capped mountains and on the border with Tibet.
Only recently opened to foreigners, the climate here is arid and the landscape is rocky, undulating and at times seems to extend to the ends of the earth. It’s a completely different experience from the mountain peaks of Annapurna or the lush areas of Langtang. On this trek you can visit rustic villages, historic gumbas (monasteries) and explore caves in very remote areas. Horseback riding is another fun way to take in the scenery, and is a nice way to give your feet a break!
Dolpa is located inside the Shey-Phoksundo National Park of midwest Nepal, behind the massif of Dhaulagiri, towards the Tibetan Plateau. Time has stood still here, and its finely preserved ecosystem encompasses a wild and wonderful variety of plants and wildlife, including the Blue Sheep and Snow Leopard. A trek through Dolpa is an experience within the preserved Tibetan culture that won’t be forgotten.
