Hikers

The trek around Annapuren is considered one of the most beautiful in Nepal, or in the whole of Asia. It is also due to the fact that tourists get to know a whole range of different types of landscapes and cultures here. The trek itself is considered challenging due to its length (which is no longer true as it is shortened due to the construction of a road in the valleys around the mountain). Let's see which stages of the Annapuren trek are the most beautiful (including side trips)
