Annapurna Sanctuary Trek - AdventureTripr

Annapurna Sanctuary Trek

Max 6 people Moderate difficulty Intermediate experience


The Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) trek is highlighted by the base camp–a center stage that stands on a glacial basin amidst a natural amphitheater of mountains. It is also known as the Annapurna sanctuary trek because the region is a well-preserved area, home to 1,226 species of flowering plants, 102 mammals, 474 birds, 39 reptiles and 22 amphibians. Furthermore, the mountains Annapurna (8,091m) and Gangapurna (7,455m) are regarded with reverence and the entire region is considered sacred.  


When you trek through the Annapurna region, you spend most of the time within the conservation area. It begins at the warm and humid lower and mid-hills reaching up to the freezing mid-Himalaya. The change in vegetation and wildlife becomes apparent as you progress on your trek, which is also embraced by life in the quaint villages, the culture of its inhabitants setting them apart. The maximum altitude you ascend during the trek is 4,130m which is not perilously high. The trail has been one of the most frequented in Nepal for decades. Ease of access, lower risk and a rich trekking experience have lured trekkers, who are keen to exact the best experience from the restrictive set of days they come with.

Devman Tamang

Reviews: 35

Dev was born in 1983 in Solukhumbu, the foothills of Everest. Familiar with the hills and mountains since his early childhood, he has spent 13 glorious years as a professional guide. The idea of preservation and promotion of the natural and cultural heritage of Nepal while sharing the beauty with the world is what inspired him to become a trekking guide. He has acquired an intermediate degree and speaks English and Hindi quite well. He has received training in first-aid, map reading, navigation, foreign culture and others enabling him better service our clients. Adventurous by nature, he has a fascination for foreign culture and great admiration for nature. He’s quite an entertainer on trek and loves to share the gifts of culture, tradition and nature with our guests. He has extensively traveled Nepal and captured beautiful memories with his skillful photography. A warm person, he has high regards for moral principles. As interesting as his story-telling, he’s an entertaining singer and dancer.
