One of the most spectacular short treks in the world, that will take you through subtropical forests to high swept alpine meadows. The sanctuary offers a panoramic 360 view of the Annapurna massif. The trek will take you through an amalgam of Nepali culture and diversity.
The Annapurna region located in Central Nepal is one of the most geographically and culturally diverse regions for trekking in the country. The Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) working along with the National Trust for Nature Conservation has declared this region an area of conservation and sustainable development. Stretched over 2600 sq. km, the area is home to a variety of diverse ethnicity and culture: Brahmins, Chettris, Newars, Gurungs, Magars, Manangis and Tibetans. The region is also host to a diverse environment: sub-tropical lowlands, stunning valleys, bamboo, oak, and rhododendron forests, alpine meadows, windswept desert plateaus, the world's deepest river gorge, and the towering Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massif. Imposing peaks on this circuit are the Annapurnas, Fishtail and Dhaulagiri with a couple of them rising to above 8000mts.
