An essential guidebook to the Annapurna region; the most popular trekking area in Nepal and a magnet for those who love mountains. The guide describes 14 treks, such as the classic Annapurna Circuit, as well as introducing routes in Mustang, Damodar and Nar-Phu. The guide gives comprehensive background information on trekking seasons and the different style options open to visitors, as well as details of all the essential items to take and recommendations on how to make the most of your trip. Annapurna is not defined by one single soaring summit; rather it is a vast massif of a series of multiple peaks and spires. These mountains dominate the landscape and provide an abundance of exciting trails and many different areas for trekking, including some suitable for all abilities (with easy options in the foothills).

I just wrote a recommendation about this Independent trekking Mr Sanjib which was the one i chose to do Everest Base Camp and Gokyo, I went to Nepal in Feb-March 2014 and I would totally recommend them. Check it out and read below what i also wrote about them. Enjoy yur time in Nepal :) http://www.nepalguideinfo.com sanjib-adhikari@hotmail.com I did Everest Base camp and Gokyo with the Independent trekking guide Mr. Sanjib and after such a nice trek I can only recommend the service that Sanjib and his team provided it. Experienced guide, a clear itinerary with lots of room for your own personal pace, a personalized approach: you go to him as a client and you leave as a friend. All this and more make the service of this trek, out of the rest. Prices are very good and the quality of all the services, were excellent. We got only great rooms and they always make sure, we have a nice view from our room (probably this is not always possible, but I like that Sanjib and Raj. were taking time in such a details to make his clients happy) He also advise you in all the matters of the trek and more importantly he was very clear about what you get. Many companies will promise you all kind of things even if they know is not possible (flying to Lukla for example is one of them or how many days you can reach certain altitude being safe from AMS) There’s a lot of companies in Kathmandu and I know how difficult and overwhelming the search for the right one can be, but if you’re reading this and looking for a person who can make your treks in Nepal smooth and a very enjoyable experience… go to Sanjib and he’ll handle the rest ☺ Thanks a lot Sanjib, for organizing my trek in Nepal and if I come back someday I definitely know where to go for treks!!
