The Annapurna sanctuary trek is a spectacular trek to the base camp of the southern face of Annapurna I. On the trail, travelers pass through the highs and lows of the diverse Nepali landscape alongside the unique cultural influences of settlement areas. On your 12-day trek to Annapurna, you will reach the base camp of Annapurna I (8,091m/26,545ft), which is the 10th highest mountain peak in the world at more than 8000 meters. The journey starts from the bamboo groves and rhododendrons in the lowlands and it reaches the summit amphitheater of Annapurna sanctuary through the Modi Khola gorge.
The high glacier basin you will pass during the Annapurna sanctuary trek is a wild Himalayan country site surrounded by ten of Nepal's highest peaks. This elliptical plateau is more than 4,130 meters high and is surrounded by a mountain range of Annapurna, Machhapuchhre, Dhaulagiri, etc of elevation more than 7,000 meters above sea level.
The narrow paths between the snow-capped mountain peaks following the Modi Khola (river) were unknown to outsiders till 1956. However, after a few encounters with the natural and artistic magnificence, trekking to the sanctuary got its height. The most prominent part of the Annapurna sanctuary is that it receives only 7 hours of sunshine a day, during the peak summer season. It is because of the high mountain ranges and peaks surrounding the region. This unique combination of height and depth in Annapurna Sanctuary gives rise to an amazing variety of ecosystems. The slopes to the south are "covered by thick tropical forests of rhododendrons and bamboo", while the slopes to the north, in the shade of rain, have "dry cold weather like in the nearby Tibetan plateau."
The Annapurna sanctuary trek is a product of the conservation of Hinduism, Buddhism, and the ancient animism deities, as well as a treasure trove of gold and various resources left by the snakes (serpent deities). It is also reflected in the sacred settlement of the Gurung caste which is why women are also considered untouchable as they are forbidden to bring eggs and meat into the area. In recent times, the number of pedestrians in the sanctuary has increased, mainly because the sanctuary is the main route to the peaks of the Annapurna ranges. The Annapurna Sanctuary is now part of the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP), which prohibits outbound travelers from collecting timber and grazing pets.
Annapurna sanctuary trekking is famous among all travelers and is a unique trek toward Annapurna. The trek begins from 6 hours drive to Pokhara and covers many popular places like Pokhara, Nayapul, Tikhedhunga / Ulleri, Ghorepani, Poonhill, Tadapani, Sinuwa, Deurali, Annapurna Base Camp, Bamboo, Jhinu Danda, Pothana, Phedi and back to Kathmandu via Pokhara. The total walking time during the trek to Annapurna sanctuary is about 3 to 7 hours per day. Well, it depends upon the pace and altitude adaptation capacity of the travelers.
Annapurna region of Nepal is covered by numerous mountain peaks and ranges of a height of more than 6,000 meters. Among which some are listed below:
Apart from these peaks, there are so many named and unnamed high mountains that you will witness while passing through Annapurna sanctuary trekking in Nepal.

Highly recommended company and the trek in Nepal.

We did the Annapurna Sanctuary trek which was an incredible experience of our life. We were pleased by the prompt response of Mr. Binod. Our guide Shiva was very helpful and cooperative as he provided all the information related to the trek. The stunning view of mountains, rivers, streams, lush green forests, etc was phenomenal. We were amazed by the beautiful mountains. Thanks, NTA for this amazing Annapurna Sanctuary Trek
I along with my classmates of around 18 people went Nepal for our summer vacation. We had an actual plan of visiting Everest Base Camp but that could not get success because of some reasons. So, we caught the trip to Annapurna region of Nepal via Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. We observed lots of mountains, green hills, human settlements and a lot of other attractions. The trekking view was so beautiful and mesmerizing. Apart from that, talking about the company and its organization, it was awesome. The humble nature of Binod (the owner of the company), Krishna (our funny cum obliging guide), and overall assistance of the whole company staffs. Salute to you guys for your so much hard works and dedication. Thumbs up. See you again!
Sometimes intuition, or gut instinct, leads you to make the right decision. I met marketing staff’s of NTA in the streets of Thamel and like many others, he gave me a business card and invited my husband and I to visit their office and discuss our travel plans. There are so many touts on the streets of Thamel but NTA’s staff open friendly manner won the day. After entering to the office we found Manager is thorough, his services reliable and very affordable and his staff and team of guides and porters are friendly, trustworthy and committed to caring for their clients. They skillfully organizes all the details for a successful trip - pickups, buses, hotels, tour activities, a checklist for trekking requirements and, of course, wonderful treks. His team organized a everything for us like- Chitwan National Park, Pokhara,The Annapurna Base Camp Trek and the Helambu trek. What an experience! Chitwan was amazing and our only regret was that we did not allow more time there after our organised activities to relax and explore the local villages more. Yes we were tired at the end of both treks but every aching muscle and sore toe was well worth it. We trekked through some of the most spectacular scenery that either of us has ever seen. The climax was, of course, Annapurna Sanctuary. It is a very special place and definitely a fitting home for the gods! The old adage holds out – no pain, no gain. We felt blessed! Trekking is a great way to get a real feel of Nepal, its countryside, its villages, its people and its magnificent mountains. I am so glad that we have had the opportunity and time to have had these wonderful experiences. A big thanks you, once again, to Manager, to our wonderful guide and friend on both treks, and our incredible porters. Don't leave it to intuition of gut instinct like I had to, but take my advice and put your trust in the hands of Manager and the wonderful staff at NTA.
In September we did the Annapurna sanctuary trek with this company. We enjoyed it so much and we had the time so we decide to go on another. This time we chose the Helambu trek. We were fortunate to have the same guide again. Ram our guide looked of our every need. It is impossible to not enjoy a trek anywhere in Nepal. The scenery everywhere you look is amazing. Thank you Nepal Trek Adventures we are sad to be left of our two months stay, but we will be back!
Annapurna sanctuary trekking is considered moderate leveled trekking. This is an easier trek in the Annapurna area, but still requires a basic level of fitness as you will be trekking for about 3 to 7 hours a day. Altitude is not a big issue in this trek and so it is suitable for people who want to hike in this area without getting sick at altitude. You don't have to be proficient, but it is a good idea to have the necessary information about walking on the cold ground. All this enables you to effectively conquer all possible problems and satisfy your fantasy in the lap of the Himalayas.

Autumn is the best season for Annapurna Sanctuary trekking as it offers excellent views of the Himalayas. Apart from Autumn, spring is considered to be the second-best season for this trek, since the trails are dry and the weather is mostly clear. We can also do trekking in other seasons (monsoon and winter) but it can be more difficult than the main season due to rain, insects, and cold weather.
Both Annapurna Sanctuary Trek and Annapurna Circuit Trek are the trekking routes to the Annapurna region which deliver the mind-blowing view of the Himalayas and flora and fauna around the area.

It offers an opportunity to perceive the world’s tenth highest peak Annapurna from an adjacent distance.
