Annapurna is derived from the Sanskrit, meaning "Giver of Food and Nourishment." The Annapurna region is considered the most popular trekking area in Nepal. Annapurna is Sierra in the Himalayas in north-central Nepal. The Annapurna Circuit route is located on the border of the Myagdi and Kaski districts and belongs to the Gandaki province of Nepal. The total length of the Annapurna trekking route is 160 to 230 kilometers (81 miles).

Several features make the Annapurna area a popular trekking destination in Nepal and the world. The Annapurna region has the world's deepest gorge, the Kali Gandaki Gorge. The Kali Gandaki Gorge is 3 miles long and 1.5 miles wide, one of the region's major highlights.

The Annapurna is biologically as well as culturally diverse. Gurung and Magar are found to be the dominant groups in the south, whereas Manage, Thakali, and Loba are dominant in the north. Each of these groups speaks and follows their dialect and culture. However, there is also a small number of Brahmins, Chhetri dominated by Hindu or Buddhist religion.

Similarly, another major highlight of the Annapurna hike is the presence of the Annapurna Conservation Area. Trekkers can find different types of exotic flora and fauna in the region. Trekkers, if lucky, can encounter animals like Himalayan Thar, Snow Leopard, Musk Deer, Langur Monkeys, Red Panda, Himalayan Black Bear, and Pika. The conservation area is home to many other varieties of birds, including Snow Partridge, Golden Eagle, Himalayan Monal, Himalayan Griffon, and many more.

The natural and cultural features of Annapurna Sanctuary have made it the most popular trekking destination in the country, and it is regarded as a budget trek. The region draws more than 70% of the country's total trekkers.

Usually, the Annapurna round trip takes about two weeks or 16 days to finish. Other short routes can be of interest to visitors in Annapurna. These temporary locations are Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek, Mardi Himal Trek, Jomsom Muktinath Trek, Ghorepani Poon Hill Circuit Trek, and so on.
