Nepal - Trekking Annapurna Sanctuary

Annapurna Sanctuary, a shimmering mountain ringed glacier basin in the heart of the Annapurna Himal, is one of the most intensely scenic short treks in Nepal, offering great cultural and geographical diversity as well as outstanding mountain views. Part of the appeal of this 11 day trek is that such an incredible, huge glacial cirque is so quickly reached—it takes only five days to hike up to it! At the Sanctuary, you’ll be surrounded by the highest peaks of the western Annapurna Himal. The 360-degree views are indescribably beautiful, especially at sunset, when the peaks glow with a molten radiance. Annapurna Sanctuary was rated by National Geographic as #18 out of the 100 most beautiful places in the world.
