Attraction of Annapurna Region

Annapurna conservation Area Project
Annapurna Region is one of the captivating lands of bio diversity in the world. The region is the largest reserved and protected area of Nepal. The unique biodiversity, the scenic grandeur in combination with the multi cultural and multi ethnic diversity make it the world's most popular trekking destinations. With the objectives of achieving a balance between the environment conservation and socio economic development, through people's participation, the Annapurna conservation area project (ACAP) was launched from 1986 under the aegis of the national trust for nature conservation...

The trust is governed by a board of trustees. Tourism is an essential for locals and the fastest growing industries in the Annapurna conservation area. The project serves as a new approach in the protected area management with its modalities based on the integrated conservation and development programs. Owing to its fame that it has gained in the history of the protected area management, the government of Nepal has given the trust the mandate for the management of the Annapurna conservation area.

Meaning of Annapurna
Annapurna is a Sanskrit name which literally means full of food (feminine form), but is normally translated as Goddess of the Harvests. In Hinduism, Annapurna is Devi, the universal and timeless Kitchen goddess, the mother who feeds her kids. Without her there is starvation, a universal fear: this makes Annapurna a universal goddess. Her most popular shrine is located in Kasi, on the banks of the Ghats. Her association with the giving of food (wealth) led her in time to be transformed into Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth.

Culture and People of the Annapurna Region
One of the unforgettable experience of this region is culture and life style of local people. During trekking, trekkers encounter villages of different ethnic people. According to last census over 45,000 thousand people of different ethnic and tribal backgrounds with various religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Bon Po, Shamanism and Animism represented live in the Annapurna region. The dominant groups are Gurung, Magar, Thakali and Manangi. Generally, these people are subsistence farmers who depend on the forests for fuel, fodder and timber. Almost each of group have their own dialect and own cultures and traditions. Trekkers who go for trekking in Annapurna region are fascinated by the local people's culture and tradition.

Flora and Fauna
In Annapurna region, we can see the diverse flora and fauna. The range of geographical and climatic regions has led to this diversity. Below 1000 m in altitude the climate is tropical. These areas are heavily cultivated and the landscape, therefore, largely consists of terraced paddy fields for most of the year. As we  go to higher the natural vegetation changes from the tropical species to more temperate stands of forest trees including oak, beech and rhododendron. These finally give way to coniferous forests of pine and, ultimately, juniper just below the tree line.

Annapurna conservation area is the home of 102 species of mammals, 488 species of birds and 40 species of reptiles.  In this region, we can see pheasants named Danphe, Monal, Kaliz, Cheer, Kokilas, and Blood Pheasants, etc. Among mammals, blue sheep and Himalayan Thar can be seen in the area.
