Annapurna Sanctuary Trek


Because of the amazing scenery in the Annapurna Sanctuary, this trek has become one of the most popular in Nepal. The sanctuary is a huge amphitheater surrounded by 10 peaks that are more than 20,000 feet (6,100m) tall, including Annapurna I, Annapurna South, Annapurna III, and Machapuchere.

The aptly named Annapurna Sanctuary also known Annapurna Base Camp trek is the most intensely scenic trek in Nepal. The Annapurna range is a vast massif with several peaks, which lies between the Kali Gandaki, and Marshyangdi river valley, forming a solid, mountain bastion. Within its span of 40 miles, it encompasses dozen of peaks that are higher than 7000m and numerous others over 6000m. Leaving Pokhara, the beautiful lake city, we trek to Annapurna base camp as rhododendron forests give way to bamboo groves, which in turn vanish into the high desert landscapes, people of Aryan stock give way to those of Mongoloid stock and the dominant religion changes from Hinduism in the lower reaches to Buddhism higher up. Passing through the Machapuchere and Annapurna base camp directly below the dramatic fishtail peak, our destination is the vast natural amphitheatre of the Annapurna Sanctuary where we are ringed by glistening peaks.
