Annapurna Sanctuary in Comfort

Annapurna Sanctuary Trek combines the best part of the Ghorepani-Poonhill trek and the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. In these 13 days of trekking, you will experience warm hospitality of the Gurung whose domination can be found in this region. You will also become face to face with some of the highest and most beautiful mountains Mt. Annapurna, Himchuli, Machhapuchhre, Gangapurna and many more.

Annapurna Sanctuary is a mountainous plateau – an oval shaped flat-topped land encircled by high mountains from all sides, save the narrow pass between Mt. Himchuli and Machhapuchhre. Annapurna, Himchuli, Machhapuchhre, Gangapurna, Annapurna South are some mountains that make up this ring.

The southern part of the sanctuary is full of lush green vegetation, mainly rhododendron, and mountain wildlife. Further north the vegetation is more Tundra like. The northern slope of the sanctuary receives little rainfall; therefore is drier and vegetation is dominated by short bushes and shrubs.

The Annapurna region is of special religious importance to the Gurung people. They believe it to be home to the ancient Naga people; who are part of the Indian mythology and folklore. The place is also a holy destination for Hindus and Buddhists with various symbolic associations. The sanctuary is part of the Annapurna Conservation Area. Visits are regulated and development activities are restricted to preserve the pristineness of the place.
