The Annapurna region of Nepal is widely renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty, with towering peaks such as Annapurna, Machhapuchhre, and Dhaulagiri rising above lush forests, icy rivers, and tropical jungles. Despite its popularity, few trekkers venture off the beaten track to explore the remote villages and experience the authentic culture of the region. This trek offers the opportunity to stay in village communities, even in local homes, to gain first-hand experience of Nepalese life. 


The trek includes visits to village weaving and paper-making workshops, as well as a yak farming project, and culminates in a visit to the sacred Khayer Lake, surrounded by shrines and the towering peak of Annapurna.


This is a moderately challenging trek that requires a reasonable level of fitness, with occasional strenuous days. Accommodation is basic and shared, with limited opportunities to wash clothing or oneself. Good hiking boots and socks are a must, and a durable daypack is needed to carry essential items. No technical experience or mountaineering gear is necessary, as porters will carry the majority of your luggage.
