Annapurna Sanctuary Trek also famously termed as the Annapurna Base Camp Trek is one of the most trekked route in the Nepal and takes place in the Annapurna Region.
The Annapurna Base Camp lies at a height of 4,130 meters and is where mountaineers start their summit of Annapurna I, the 10th highest peak in the world at 8,091 meters. The trail goes alongside terraced rice paddies, lush rhododendron forests and high altitude landscapes with the Annapurna Range in view most of the times. Moreover, it also passes through villages of ethnic Gurung and Thakali communities.
The trek overall is beautiful and gives you a very up close experience with Annapurna and Machhapuchhre mountains. It is especially beautiful during spring as rhododendron flowers along the trail turn red, pink and white. Moreover, travelers get a unique opportunity to take a dip in the warm natural spring at Jhinu Dada and get refreshed at the end of the trek.
If you are physically fit, willing to take up the challenge to witness some jaw dropping views, Annapurna Base Camp trek is the trek for you.
