The Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) has recognized alternative trekking trails in the renowned Annapurna Region. ACAP began exploring new trails after popular trails in the region were abridged with the construction of motorable roads.
The new routes too ensure magnificent views of different mountain peaks and enjoyment of cultural diversity in the region.
These new trails can be completed in two to eight days. The longest route, which takes eight days, starts from Khudi of Lamjung and lasts at Nar and Phu villages of Manang. According to ACAP, all the new routes will be away from the Beni-Jomsom and Beshisahar-Chame road sections.
While developing these new trails ACAP works in coordination with Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, TAAN, Nepal Tourism Board, and District Development Committee of the concerned districts.
