It has the world’s deepest river gorge—Kali Gandaki Gorge, which is 3 miles long and 1.5 miles wide, is a valley with fossils from the Tethys Sea dating 60 million years ago. The region contains among the world’s largest rhododendron forest in Ghorepani. Tilicho lake, located in Manang, north of Annapurna massif, is the world’s highest altitude fresh water lake.

This area treasures four Annapurna massifs, Machhapuchhre, Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri. Behind the mountains is a living Tibetan civilization in the valleys of Mustang. Annapurna region is also famous for its Hindu religious shrine Muktinath temple. During the trekking season, the trail is accompanied by lush green forest of rhododendron, birds chirping and a kaleidoscope of butterflies. The trail fills with warm sun and cool mountain breezes.
