Annapurna Sanctuary Trekking is one of the well-known trekking in the Annapurna region. It is a well-admired trip in Nepal by trekkers around the world to enjoy the Himalayan excursion along with the cultural exploration.

The trip offers not only the exciting trekking experience but also draws you closer to the real and typical countryside lifestyle that represents the feature of what to see during the Annapurna Sanctuary trekking.

The trek begins from Nayapul and heads towards Poon Hill. One of the best aspects of the trek is that the glimmering Himalayan sceneries can be enjoyed from several viewpoints.

The trek leads you to the natural amphitheatre of the Annapurna base camp via Machhapuchhre base camp, which is fully surrounded by the snowy peaks. Mt. Annapurna I (8091 m.), Annapurna II (7937 m.), Fishtail and the peaks around allure you with their extreme fascinations.
