The Annapurna Sanctuary Trek is the favorite choice for nature lovers around the world. This trek into the hidden mountain stronghold of the Annapurna Sanctuary is an extended version of the Annapurna Base Camp Trek, as it includes an additional scenic route through high ridges to Ghorepani and a pre-dawn walk up to the famous Poon Hill where you will be rewarded by incomparable views of the sun’s first rays touching the peaks of Dhaulagiri and the Annapurnas. The combination of pretty villages and farmland set against the panorama of high peaks beyond, make this one of the most spectacular of treks.
The Annapurna Sanctuary trek allows six days trekking through forests of rhododendron, terraced fields and quaint villages before our approach to a world of ice and snow at the Annapurna South Base Camp. This pace is governed by the need to acclimatize properly, rather than by the actual distance which we could walk each day. The altitude at Annapurna South Base camp is a little over 4000m, and our six day walk-in to this altitude should ensure that nobody suffers altitude sickness. We will generally be walking for between 4 and 6 hours each day to cover distances of about 5 or 6 miles. But, the hiking trails though good, are steep stone steps, always either uphill or downhill. In the lush forest of the approach to the Annapurna Sanctuary the underfoot conditions can be damp and slippery. There are numerous lodges and tea-houses where we can take refreshing breaks all along this popular trekking route.Presenting a magical mix of excellent trekking, friendly villages and outstanding mountain views, Annapurna Sanctuary Trek is a perfect combination to experience the diversity of nature and culture in Nepal .
