Annapurna Sanctuary Trek - one of the most popular trekking holiday around Annapurna Region of Nepal. From ancient kingdoms to majestic mountain vistas, embark on a 14-days Annapurna sanctuary trek experience in Nepal and cross the breathtaking landscape of the Himalayas.

 

Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) is within the Annapurna Sanctuary. So called because the summit of nearby Machhapuchhare, the classic Fishtail Mountain, is reputed to be the abode of the Gods. The Annapurna Himal has several 7000m+ peaks and the Base Camp is within a natural amphitheatre of mountains containing Annapurna I, Annapurna II and Annapurna South. This is a great opportunity to see some of the highest mountains in the world, within a reasonably short timescale and without experiencing some of the problems brought on by extreme altitude.

 

This Annapurna sanctuary trek provides an excellent opportunity to experience the fascinating glimpse of rich culture, typical Nepalese lifestyle and ultimate thrill of trekking in the Himalayas at the high elevation.
