TESTIMONIALS

...new terrain every day, amazing views and expert tuition. I seriously cannot recommend this company enough; from beginner to expert the guys at MV will have you hitting bigger steeper terrain the right way and with confidence. But don’t take my word for it, come and experience it for yourself and join me on my 4th tour in 2019.

EDDIE / MYOKO SNOW PROGRESSION VENTURE GUEST

Truly the most adventurous and amazing time of my life. The scenery, atmosphere, organisation and treking mates second to none. The biggest problem now is what will I do next! There has to be more out there, I will be looking forward to what Zac and Mountain Ventures can suggest? Annapurna?

JACQUI / EVEREST BASE CAMP VENTURE GUEST

ANNAPURNA REGION VENTURES

Annapurna region Ventures

Trek through the oldest conservation area in Nepal, visiting an abundance of different environments along the way, such as rain forests, desserts, alpine, woodlands. 

Either trek around the Annapurna range or trek into Annapurna Base Camp, or why not even combine the two together

Where you will be going..

After flying into Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal , you'll have a night in a luxury Boutique guest house in the central tourist district before a domestic flight  the next day to Pokhara.

The next day private Jeep transfers will get you to the start of your hike.

From here we will spend our days trekking through the breathtaking scenery of the Annapurna Conservation area.

Annapurna comes from an female sanskrit name that translates to Goddess of Harvest.

There are three options for the Annapurna region treks.

Annapurna Circuit - explore many different environments while trekking around the Annapurna ranges and slowly gaining altitude to a max altitude of 5418 meters before descending down in the North.

Annapurna Base Camp and Poon Hill - Start you trek by trekking straight up to Poon hill for incredible views of Annapurna range then start heading up the Valley into Annapurna Base Camp for a max altitude of only 4130 meters, before descending back down with a visit to the natural hot springs.

Annapurna Combo - Combine the two treks together for the ultimate experience of the Annapurna Conservation area.

After finishing your trek you are shuttled back to Pokhara via our private Jeep transfers where you have a free day to explore Pokhara or choose an exciting optional activity such as white water rafting or paragliding.

Once we fly back to Kathmandu the following day, you will be staying in your own well deserved single occupancy room in a Luxury hotel with rooftop infinity pool, buffet breakfast, in house day spa, all away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist district.
