Annapurna Sanctuary Trek – A walk to the abode of the Mountain Gods. Walk through a typical Nepalese landscape filled with terraced fields, rustic traditional farms and the snow clad Himalayas stretching in the horizon. Exchange smiles and a warm 'Namaste!' with friendly villagers. Let your guide lead you to a spectacular glacial sanctuary known as the 'Abode of the Gods'...

Annapurna Sanctuary Trek is on the bucket list of trekking enthusiasts dreaming of an adventure in the Himalayas. A popular trek in Nepal, Annapurna Sanctuary trekking takes you from the verdant hills to a spectacular glacial basin. Stand under the inspiring Annapurna Massif at Annapurna Base Camp. These sacred mountains are revered as gods. In addition, a hike to the village of Ghorepani and its viewpoint Poon Hill adds flavor to this classic itinerary. From the vantage point, enjoy a three-sixty degree panorama of the Annapurna mountains.

The Trail - A little bit of up and a little bit of down

A short drive from Pokhara brings you to the trailhead at Nayapul. Your first day’s trek involves a long ascent up the stone steps to Ulleri. Before climbing on the epic staircase, enter the lush jungle of the Annapurna Conservation Area. This Annapurna trek takes you through picturesque Gurung and Magar traditional settlements; home to the brave ‘Gurkha’ soldiers. Further, hike to Poon Hill for 360-degree views of the Himalayas. Experience mountain culture coupled with amazing Himalayan views.

The trail cuts along steep gorges of glacial rivers. Walk across a typical Nepali landscape; terraced fields and hillside villages with mud and stone cottages. Step on winding stone staircases and under canopies of blooming rhododendron trees. Following close on the heels of your experienced guide, you eventually reach the awe-inspiring Annapurna Base Camp and the Annapurna Sanctuary. Finally, wrap up your trek with a relaxing soak at the Jhinu hot springs. Graded moderate, one can do this Annapurna trek in Nepal if one is physically fit and has a bit of trekking experience. Join this trek and get the best of the ‘Annapurna experience’! 

Some more awe-inspiring Annapurna treks

Looking for something challenging? Please check out our Annapurna Circuit Trek which takes you from the verdant Marshyangdi Valley to the arid Kali Gandaki Valley. Experience diversity in culture and landscapes. For a shorter Annapurna experience, you can book our popular Ghorepani Poonhill Trek. This trek offers amazing mountain views and cultural immersion at Gurung villages en route. 

Why Annapurna Sanctuary Trek?

  • Step into the Annapurna Sanctuary – a sacred glacial basin surrounded by Himalayan peaks
  • Visit Poon Hill, the most popular viewpoint in the Annapurna Region
  • Walk past mountain settlements of Gurung and Magar ethnic communities
  • Trek through one of the largest rhododendron forests in the world
  • Take a dip in the mineral-rich waters of Jhinu hot springs

 Is this trip suitable for you?

  • This trek can be done by anybody who is in good health and is used to walking on hilly terrain.
  • The actual trek lasts for 10 days. The trail winds along ethnic Gurung and Magar villages and rhododendron forests. Most of the time you will be walking up and down well-laid stone staircases.
  • You walk 5 to 6 hours each day. If you want to take it slow, our experienced guide will allow you walk at your own pace. You won’t have to worry about catching up with your group. There will always be someone from the crew to guide you if you fall behind. 
  • The first day’s trek is the toughest as you will have to ascend more than 3000 steps. If you have trouble with your knees, you should consider opting for a much easier trek. 
  • You will have your meals and stop for rest at locally run teahouses. These are small mountain lodges offering basic facilities - hearty meal and shelter for travellers passing by. Do not expect modern amenities like you get in city hotels at these humble mountain lodges. Remember, you are travelling in one of the world’s most remote places and you may have to sacrifice some modern luxuries.   
  • The highest point you will reach is the Annapurna Base Camp at 4,130m.

Accommodations at 4 star hotels in Kathmandu, Pokhara and the best available teahouse on the trail. Spend 2 nights at the luxurious Hotel Shanker in Kathmandu and 2 nights at  Hotel Barahi in  Pokhara. Both hotels feature tastefully decorated rooms with en suite bathrooms, multi-cuisine restaurants, bar, café, swimming pool and spa.

While trekking, you will be spending 9 nights at comfortable mountain lodges run by local families. These mountain lodges are a source of income for mountain communities. Most of the teahouses en route will have rooms with attached bathrooms, but the facilities will be basic. Compared to city hotels, teahouses along the trail may not have the same facilities. To enjoy your trip, we urge you to keep an open mind and embrace the experience.

Accommodation is arranged on a twin-sharing basis. If traveling alone, you will share the room with someone of the same sex. If you need a single room, it will be made available at an extra cost.Though single rooms are readily available in Kathmandu, Pokhara and at lower elevations while trekking, at higher elevations it is very difficult to get a single room!


Breakfast and farewell dinners will be provided in Kathmandu. Only breakfast in Pokhara. 

On the trail all  meals (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) will be provided. Breakfast and dinner will be served at the teahouse you will be staying overnight. Lunch will be at a teahouse en route, on the trail. Food on the trail consists of local (rice, lentils, curry, chapatis) and international dishes (apple pie, pancakes, pizza, mac & cheese, toast, noodles etc.) high on nutrition and carbohydrate.

Best Time To Travel

Spring (March to May) and Autumn (late September to November) are the ideal seasons to trek to Annapurna Base Camp as it is neither too hot or nor too cold during these times. Notably, an Autumn trek promises clear skies and stunning mountain vistas, while a Spring trek will have you walking through meadows filled with flowers. The forests are filled with colorful rhododendron blooms during this time. Above 4000 meters, you can expect nighttime temperatures to drop as low as -10 degrees.

We made lifelong friends and saw some of the best parts of Nepal. We reached out to Naba. He was brilliant, easy to contact and very efficient. Everything was hassle-free. Overall, brilliant service from all involved and made our trekking experience an unforgettable one. Would love to travel with Third Rock Team again.

Annapurna Sanctuary- A true gem of Nepal

Pre-trip Info
Value for Money
Me and my wife walked the Annapurna Sanctuary with Third Rock Adventures. At first we were a little weary about taking the services of a local company instead of going with a travel company in Manchester. Turns out, we made the best decision of our lives. The services provided by them was excellent. We were taken care like we were family and they left us completely satisfied. We must advise everyone travelling to Nepal for trekking to choose a local company like Third Rock Adventures, you will get a whole lot more than what you paid for. Three cheers for Third Rock Adventures....

A hard but rewarding trek

Pre-trip Info
Value for Money
I discovered Third Rock Adventures’ website while searching for a good trekking agency on the internet. I decided to book the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek with them as they were quick with their responses and the only company who took the trouble to call. Because I am 68 years old, I needed a lot of help in preparing for my trip. The communication before and during the trip was excellent. Their wise advice and expert guidance proved to be invaluable. My guide Deepak and the porter Ram, helped me a lot along the difficult trail. I am forever grateful to them as they made this adventure happen. It was hard work and not easy for 60 plus me and there were moments when I doubted that I would ever make it to Base Camp. But these humble mountain men gently encouraged me and helped me through the most difficult trails. It was a dream come true when I finally stood at the Sanctuary. It was a beautiful journey. Thank you to all the team at TRA for a memorable trip. Thank you so much Deepak and Ram for taking such good care of me. I give my highest recommendation to Third Rock Adventures and their guides.
Good Value.
I wanted to walk to the Annapurna Sanctuary.
The whole trip was memorable, but I shall never forget the sunrise from the Annapurna Sanctuary. It was spectacular!
Get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself. You won't regret it!

Annapurna Sanctuary- Best Experiences

Pre-trip Info
Value for Money
This was our first trek abroad for my friend and I. We identified one local trekking company on Trip Adviser which had excellent reviews but unfortunately they were not terribly responsive to email and WhatsApp communications. We therefore decided to find a trekking company upon our arrival in Kathmandu. We had booked two nights at the Oasis Hotel. The manager there - Tulsi, recommended ‘Third Rock Adventure’. Tulsi helped create an itinerary that suited our capabilities and requirements. This was reviewed by our trekking guide (Jaysram Adhikari) and the porter (Vishnu Bhatta). We were told to us to ask any questions, which was reassuring as it was our first trek abroad

Guinness World Record holder Gives Third Rock Adventures a Review!

Werner Berger is the Guinness Book of World Records holder for being the oldest person in the World to have climbed the highest mountain on each of the seven (7) continents (incl. Mt. Everest).

I am Werner Berger and my "claim to fame" is probably best defined as being in the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest person in the world to have climbed the highest mountain on each of the seven continents, including Mt. Everest.

Little did I know my life was to change forever on my first trek into the Himalaya in 1992 at age 55. It was the beginning and just a matter time before I realized I could combine my leadership and climbing skills to create a program in which people could explore their own possibilities.

So, in 2010, I began leading Transformational Life Experiences, treks to Mt. Everest Base Camp and other high places.

One of the earliest keys to success is to find a company with the right mix of professionalism, support, and, of course, experience. I have used Naba Amgai and his teams on all my Nepal trekking adventures.

Naba's caring and climber support, is second to none. In my estimation, Third Rock Adventures is one of the very best in the business, in or outside of Nepal. They know the mountains. So you can relax, enjoy and transform.
