Holy Himalaya Annapurna Sanctuary (ABC) | Special Treks for Bird Watching

Holy Himalaya Annapurna Sanctuary (ABC) | Special Treks for Bird Watching

A classic walk right into the heart of the mountains. This popular trek ascends through picturesque villages to the center of the Annapurna range offering dramatic mountain scenery. Standing in the middle of the Sanctuary, surrounded by towering snowy peaks ranging between 6000-8000m, is a truly awe-inspiring experience. Sunrise and sunset are magical as you watch the sun dance on the peaks of Annapurna 1, Annapurna South, Annapurna 3, and Machapuchare. The maximum altitude reached on this trek is 4,400m at Annapurna Base Camp. The trail up is often steep and the Sanctuary trek is perhaps one of the more challenging of the teahouse treks. If you allow the time to ascend at your own pace this trek is open to the moderately fit. A minimum of 10 days should be allowed to complete this trek with extra days for exploring the Base Camps and for \alternative routes down, for example via the Hot Springs of Tatopani.

Bird Watching
Nepal’s unique geography has created habitat for many rare species of birds from Himalayan Griffon, Himalayan Monal, Satyr Tragopan, in the inner valley of the world’s highest mountains peaks to the rarest bird of the world Bengal Florican, Sarus Crane in the Plain of Terai. The indigenous bird like Slaty Wood-pecker (common in Bardia National Park) and Spiny Babbler (in mid hills only) are the birds that have been sighted often in Nepal. The riverine plains of Nepal are the habitat of the hosts of migratory birds from as far as Siberia, Indus Valley, Laddakh, and Tibetan Himalayas. The insight guide writes, ”Nepal is a paradise for bird-lovers, with more than 800 species recorded, representing 10 percent of the world’s population in a fraction of landmass”. Please note: Flight fares subject to change without any prior notice. Price Includes: Bird specialize guide, assistants, 3 meals per day, afternoon tea & snacks, accommodation for the duration of the trek (2 persons per room). However, during high season one room per two clients may not be always available. If this should happen we request our clients to be flexible and share a triple or room with four beds. Annapurna Park entry and TIMS fees, staff insurance, transport to and from the trailhead, two night’s accommodation pre and post the trek and a complimentary massage after the trek from seeing Hands, a blink organization. Doesn’t include: soft beverages, air tickets & client insurance. *Please note that flights are not included for the Jomsom Trek in the above price ~ extra flight charge: $120 per person per way (includes all airport tax) and staff US$ 65 per person per way (includes all airport tax).
