The Sanctuary falls within the area managed by the Annapurna Conservation Area Project and is an exercise in environmental and cultural protection accommodating the needs of both the visitors and the local inhabitants.
There is a good mix of high mountains and Himalayan culture on this trek. The Annapurna Himal lies between the Kali Gandaki and Marsyangdi river valley, forming a solid, mountain bastion. Within its span of 40 miles, it encompasses some twelve peaks that are higher than 7000 m. and numerous others over 6000 m. As rhododendron forests give way to bamboo groves, which in turn vanish into the high, desert landscapes, people of Aryan stock give way to those of Mongoloid stock and the dominant religion changes from Hinduism in the lower reaches to Buddhism higher up.
When you trek in the Annapurna region you will see many fascinating ways of life and ancient cultural and religious sites and activities.
The culture of the Annapurna region stems from its peoples, their ancestral origin, and their religions. The people of this region migrated here from Tibet in times long ago. They arrived at different times from different regions, bring different religions. There are at least 3 main groups and 3 separate religions. These peoples and religions coexist for the most part happily.
You need not to worry even your vacation doesn't allow sufficient days for a long trek. Here, in this region you can experience other treks relatively short, but of course enjoyable. Check out Makalu Adventures special short treks -
