Amazing region full of high mountains in the shadow of the majestic ridge of Annapurnas is located on the upper reaches of the beautiful Marsyangdi River in central Nepal. You should slow down here – not only because of acclimatization, but mainly due fantastic views from all sorts of lookouts enthroned above the base path trek around Annapurnas. Northern part of the area situated in Damodars Himalaya is largely arid, mainly due to monsoon shield, and only on the highest mountains are the remnants of glaciers. In extremely deserted valleys around Nar and Phu rivers are amazing ancient Buddhist villages. Most tourists will experience this type of landscape only at the final ascent to Thorong la Pass, when they finally leave the Manang region. Local life and tourists gather in the villages along the Marsyangdi River, where even small-scale agriculture is quite successful. South impenetrable border of the region is basically designed just for admiring from a safe distance :-).
