The Annapurna Sanctuary trek in Nepal is one of the most diverse treks in the area. Starting from the middle hills of tropical climate and jungle, the scenery gives way to barren heath above the vegetation line for the last 2 days. Annapurna Base Camp itself is located in a remarkable natural amphitheatre of 6000+ mountains on all sides.
