Overview of Annapurna Sanctuary Trek

The Himalayas of Nepal, known for their exceptional views, is the true treasure of nature. Travel enthusiasts seek to explore nature’s raw beauty and keep Nepal their top priority. Distinct landscapes, hospitable people, huge bio-diversity, and magnificent mountain peaks combine to make beautiful trekking trails. Annapurna Sanctuary Trek is a true blessing among the different trek paths in this Himalayan nation.

Annapurna Sanctuary Trek is somehow tricky and yet an adventurous walk on the foothills of the Himalayas. The prodigious display of the sheer unique power of nature makes a remarkable journey. The Base Camp trail mingles with a gorgeous and diverse landscape. This classic path takes you to the foothill of the 10th-highest mountain in the world. Even during the late 19s, travelers wandered around this particular region. You shall encounter small chores and Gomba in this tranquil journey of exotic traditions. Gliding farmlands and thick Bamboo and pine forests make the adventure walk a relaxing escape.


Annapurna Sanctuary Trek Highlights

  • Stay in the scenic valley of Pokhara, also called the city of Lakes
  • On the same trip, witness the two base camps, i.e., Annapurna Base Camp at 4130 meters and Machhapuchhre Base Camp at 3700 meters
  • Be mindful of the traditions, culture, and traditional living practices followed in the Annapurna region
  • Stunning 360 panoramic views of the Mount Annapurna ranges, Hiunchuli, Gangapurna, and Machhapuchhre Himal
  • Relaxation in the hot water pool suited over Jhinu Danda as you return from the Base Camp
  • Walk along the waves of Modi Khola and the forests wealthy in the diverse flora and fauna
  • Staying in comfortable tea houses owned by the locals promotes the Nepalese economy
  • Visit famous touristic destinations such as Ghandruk and Poon Hill

The trek is not all about the mountains and the forest. The occasionally terraced farmlands, traditional villages, and the region’s cultural beauty make it even more enjoyable. Once you walk above the farmland and outside the forest, you witness a unique and captivating alpine vegetation- the mountain landscape is very distinct. The swift-flowing rivers, along with the cascading waterfalls, add to the beauty. One gets to cross the substantial perennial rivers in the mountain’s heart with suspension and wooden bridges. Further, the natural hot spring water over the Jhinu Danda revitalizes the trekkers with positive energy.

Today, the long and steep stone staircase makes the entire journey. And obviously, the occasional glimpse of mountain vistas will keep you amused.

    At this point, one feels that the mountain is appearing closer. The last section of the walk comprises a 2-hour continuous ascent leading to Dovan. This will be the adventurous part of the journey made yet. After some rest, we further walk to the Himalayas- this will be a short walk.

  • Day 9: Trek from Himalaya to Annapurna Base Camp (4130m) 7-8 hour trek

    First, our destination shall take us to Machhapuchhre Base Camp at 3700 meters. Machhapuchhre Himal, also called Fishtail, is about 6,993 m tall. This is a less popular base camp as the view is often blocked from this mountainside. While many trekkers choose to spend the night here, as per our Itinerary, we can walk to the Annapurna Base camp. You might want to capture some pictures before we walk further.

You can witness ranges including Annapurna South, Lamjung Himal, Annapurna I, Hiunchuli Peak, Fishtail, and Barah Shikhar.

  • Day 10: Trek from Annapurna Base Camp to Bamboo (2360m) - 6-7 hour trek

    Now, we are all set to move back toward the Pokhara. But we will do that leisurely. You would love to spend the morning exploring more of this place. The calm morning wind and a warm cup of tea make the stay at Annapurna more fun.

    After spending a beautiful night at the Base Camp, we take our journey backward. Retracing the same route, we first move to MBC. Now, waving another goodbye to Machhapuchhre, we trek down to Dovan. Although Dovan is an excellent place to stay after seven hours of trek, we will not stop here. Another short walk from Dovan brings us to bamboo. Here, the views of the mountain will continuously accompany us on the trek.

    Overnight in Bamboo
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

  • Day 11: Trek from Bamboo to Jhinu Danda (1730m) 5-6 hour trek

    After all these trek days, our body deserves an abate day. Today’s walk is rather calming and fun from the very beginning. We follow the path to Chhomrong. In Pine, Oak, and Rhododendron thick forests, we might encounter some wild animals and identify exotic birds.

    Jhinu Hot Spring

    After some rest here, we continue towards Jhinu Danda. Freshen yourself before walking to the hot spring- only a 20-minute walk.

  • Day 12: Trek Jhinu to Nayapul, and Drive to Pokhara

    After a relaxing day, it’s high time to return to Pokhara. This is the last day of the Annapurna Sanctuary trek.

    In the morning, we walk along the river of Modi Khola on the right back. The river will accompany us throughout the trek. We first walk through the multiple small villages where we shall stop for lunch. You can also talk with local people and learn about their lifestyles. First, we step beyond the bamboo forests that take us to Birethanti. Today’s trail is relatively flat and enjoyable for your journey.

    Nayapul is only a 3-4 hour of walk from Jhinudada. As we reach Nayapul, the Jeep to Pokhara will be waiting for us. On a seldom bumpy highway, we will drive slowly and smoothly. The view of hills and streams will still accompany us. When we reach Pokhara, we spend some time exploring the area. For the evening, we enjoy a delicious meal at Lake Side.

    Overnight at Pokhara

In the peak season, many raft boats enjoy the river’s rapids.

Thamel bestows classic souvenirs, such as handicrafts, that you can carry as a gift to your loved one. In the evening, we shall enjoy the farewell dinner- our last one.

    Essential Information

    Further walking the classic route, we move towards Sinuwa and the Himalayan Hotel. Crashing in the base camp of the Annapurna, we will be living the most exciting night of our life. After some beautiful clicks, we move towards Bamboo and Jhinu Dada. The hot water pond in Jhinu Dada will take off your tiredness before getting down to Phedi and finally reaching Pokhara.

    Permits for Annapurna Sanctuary Trek

    First, our travel agency makes all the arrangements relative to the Permit for the tour- you have nothing to worry about. But knowing the Permit will keep you informed about the trek.

    Two types of permits are mandatory for the Annapurna trek. The first one is the Trekkers Information Management System Card (also called TIMS. And then, we need an entry permit to enter the Annapurna Conservation Area. TIMS’s cost is about Rs 3000 for a national park entry permit, which is Rs 2000. These permits can be purchased from the Pokhara tourism office. Here, you can also extend the visa to stay in Nepal. The permits for the base camp are checked along the way.

    Best time to do Annapurna Base Camp

    Thankfully, Annapurna Base Camp is achievable at anytime time of the year. Yet, the monsoon (May, June, July) is not a good time. The evening mostly gets heavy rainfall, and the dark clouds are ever-present. And the summer also brings mosquitoes, leeches, and slippery roads. At the same time, it can be a good time for the keen biologist as the animals and plants are active.

    Autumn (September to November) receives the maximum number of visitors. Autumn is relatively dry and warm with crystal clear blue sky and moderate temperature. Spring is also the best time, with the wildflowers blooming all around. The trail is filled with red and white Rhododendrons and exotic flowers in spring. These two seasons are the best time and yet the most crowded ones. So, it’s necessary to book the hotels in advance.

    And for the rest of the year, mostly winter (December to January), the trail will be quieter. Dry air and clear sky make extraordinary visibility, but the cold and snow can make the path difficult. Trekking in December needs the appropriate packaging.

    Accommodation for Annapurna Sanctuary Trek

    Three-star hotel accommodation is included in Pokhara and Kathmandu. While we are on a trekking path, we will mostly stay in a Local Hotel called tea houses. The tea houses have a private rooms with two single beds with a mattress, blanket, and pillow. The rooms are small and yet comfortable for the stay.

    Regarding the food, locals expect travelers to eat where they stay. You can have eggs, pancakes, sandwiches, milk, and tea for breakfast. You get packets of Noodles, Pudding, Macaroni, Chowmein, Dal Bhat Tarkari, Momo, and more for lunch and dinner. Nepalese cuisine, i.e., Dal Bhat, is the cheapest and the most filling option.

    Altitude Sickness for Annapurna Sanctuary Trek

    When you travel above 2400m meters, you can develop a specific sickness called altitude sickness. AMS is the effect of lower oxygen levels that come with high elevation on our body.

    The symptoms, such as headache, nausea, loss of appetite, vomiting, shortness of breath, etc., can be fatal. If such symptoms look severe in you, it gets harsh with time. So, you need to ascend downhill and get enough water. This issue can be solved by including enough acclimatization days in your itinerary. Also, there is medicine such as Diamox that helps in acclimatizing. But in extreme cases, you might need helicopter evacuation.

    Travel Insurance for Nepal

    Travel Insurance is compulsory before you book our traveling package. We will collect the information about your insurance before you get to Nepal. To be safe, ensure that your insurance covers emergency medical evacuation. Also, it should cover Helicopter rescues at higher altitudes. So, be careful to pick your insurance.

    Custom Formalities in Nepal

    Upon your arrival in Nepal, you must pass the customs formalities of your baggage. Electronics other than personal belongings, such as laptops, video recorders, and cameras, are allowed in Nepal. But if you purchase an antique piece as a souvenir, it needs certification from the Department of Archeology. It is illegal to export artifacts older than 100 years from Nepal.

    Group Size

    We can arrange solo or group trekking (2 to 16 people) per your schedule. Every two people get a porter, and the larger group gets more assistance guides. Also, you can join the fixed departure trip, which is relatively cheaper.
