The Annapurna Region
Okay, so what’s the best way to describe the Annapurna region? It’s like the Abel Tasman of New Zealand – it’s nowhere near as well-known as Milford Sound, but equally impressive. Here at Active HQ, we have the enviable job of cataloguing thousands of incredible images from our trips, and we can say with certainty that the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, ‘AST’ regularly tops the popularity list in terms of jaw-dropping visuals. There’s something about Machapuchare (one of the three Annapurna Mountains, also known as ‘Fish Tail’) that will leave a lasting impression as it stands tall on its own on the horizon. And then of course, you have the sanctuary itself, a mesmerizing amphitheater deafening in its silence.
