Annapurna Trek

No trips are scheduled, but please contact us if you would like to put together a private or custom trip.

This year’s Annapurna Trek will offer trekking and climbing on the southern flanks of the massive Annapurna Range. Our first stop will be the famous Poon Hill. This offers one of the most spectacular views of Dhaulagiri I and Annapurna I. The next eight days will be spent in the recently opened Ghandruk area below Annapurna I. After that we will enter the Annapurna Sanctuary where the climbers in the group can enjoy a two day climb of Tent Peak, Tharpu Chuli at 19,000’ while the trekkers take in the views from the spectacular base camp. The total time of this trip is 24 days on the trail.
