We are among a short list of operators devoted solely to the extensive Annapurna Region of Nepal.
Annapurna Activities' Pokhara base, with its office, its cafe and its garden-facing bedrooms, is just 300 metres from Pokhara's iconic lake with its views of Machupuchare (Fishtail) Mountain and beyond to the summits that border Tibet.
The Annapurnas are of course famed for their hikes and treks,
from the fertile villages of the middle hills
to high passes and peaks.
The snow melt provides the rivers which draw paddlers
- both kayakers and rafters -
while the paragliding pilot and his/her tandem passenger
are lifted by the thermals into the skies above.
