Annapurna Base Camp (4, 130 m, 13, 550 ft) Trekking is the one of the most popular trekking routes in the recent time. Most of the trekkers have chosen ABC as their one of the best choices for the trek. Annapurna Base Camp (Annapurna Sanctuary) is a high glacial basin lying 40 km directly north of Pokhara. Annapurna Base Camp is surrounded by a ring of mountains, the Annapurna range, most of which are over 7, 000 m. With the only entrance a narrow valley between the peaks of Hiunchuli and Machapuchare (Fish Tail Mountain), where run-off from glaciers drain into Modi Khola River.
Not only Annapurna Base Camp Trekking is famous domestically, but also attracts to outsiders, hikers, adventure, trekkers and global trotters. Because of high mountains on all sides, the Annapurna Sanctuary receives only 7 hours of sunlight a day at the height of summer. The south-facing slopes are covered in dense tropical jungles of Rhododendron and Bamboo, while the north-facing slopes, in the rain shadow, have a drier colder climate similar to that of the near-by Tibetan Plateau.
The entire sanctuary was held as sacred to the Gurung people, one of the many native people to inhabit the area. The sanctuary was believed to be the home of several deities, from Hinduism and Buddhism as well as older animistic gods. The peak of Machapuchare at the entrance was believed to be home of the God Shiva, and the daily plumes of snow were thought the smoke of his divine incense. Untill recently, the local Gurung people forbade anyone from bringing eggs or meat into the Annapurna Sanctuary, and women and untouchable were prohibited from going there as well.
Recently, the number of trekkers to the Annapurna Base Camp has increased substantially, in part because of the Sanctuary forms the base of one of the major routes to the peaks of Annapurna Range.
