Annapurna Sanctuary Trek - 17 Days

A soothing view of the Annapurna South and Him Chuli in the Annapurna region, Nepal.

The Annapurna Sanctuary is an oval shaped plateau perched at an altitude of 4000m. The chain of the towering Annapurna massif encompasses this expanse from all sides. Owing to such unique topography, this region receives only seven hours of sunlight a day, yet it is blessed with an extra-ordinary variety of ecosystems. This sanctuary was once regarded as sacred for the people following Hindu and Buddhist religion, as they clung to the belief that their deities dwelled here. Derestricted only in 1956, the Annapurna Sanctuary is now one of the most favored trekking destinations in Nepal.

Annapurna Sanctuary Trek is a spectacular footy venture that takes you to the South face of Annapurna through the diversified picturesque villages, neatly terraced fields, dense forests, flashy rhododendron bushes and roaring rivers, along the challengingly pleasant trails embellished with the back drop of captivating mountainous vista. Our trek to this secret mountain fortress beings from Nayapul, located at about half an hour’s drive from the hullabaloo of Pokhara. A predawn ascent from Ghorepani to the vantage point of  Poon Hill (3210 m) and the mountainous vista of the majestic Annapurna Range, Dhaulagiri and Fishtail you behold there, sipping your hot chocolate/coffee, would certainly be a “once in a lifetime” experience for you. Trudging up to the Machhapuchre Base Camp (3700 m) and then even higher to the Annapurna Base Camp (4130 m) would definitely gobble up your stored calorie and keep you panting, but the scenic rewards that you are offered once you get there, will compel you to smile with a loud “wow!!”, no matter how drained out you could be ! As you pass by the cluster of human settlements along the way, you can interact with the amiable local people and hear from them about their culture and traditions. They might not be so good at articulating things for you, but their efforts and gestures and some help from your guide, will help you understand things. Gurungs, Magars, Thakalis and of course, the Sherpas are some of the ethnic groups you get to mingle with. You don’t need to be a muscleman nor need to have the stamina of a super athlete to go for this trek. If you are not physically stunted and have a good fitness level, you are all set to penetrate the sanctuary!!
