The Annapurna region of Nepal is a land so gorgeous; it’s long been the ultimate trekking dream for hikers. Here, the sacred peaks of Annapurna, Machapuchare and Dhaulagiri, shining with snow year round, tower over ancient rhododendron forests, icy glaciers/ rivers, and temperate jungles where leopard still roam. Plenty of trekkers come here for all this beauty – but few stray off the tourist routes.Epic Adventures visit off-the-beaten-track villages in the Annapurna region. Walkers stay in village communities - sometimes in people's homes - so there's time for real interaction with Nepalis. We will eat with families. We will visit a village weaving workshop and a cheese making project. The high point of our trek is a visit to sacred Khayer Lake (4500m) surrounded with shrines, and with the peak of Annapurna towering above.
