A dense tropical forest of bamboo and Rhododendron cover the south-facing slopes while the north-facing slopes are covered by rain shadow. The sanctuary is considered sacred by both Hindus and Buddhists and is believed to be the abode of their deities. Annapurna sanctuary was not even opened to foreigners until 1956. Annapurna Base Camp trek, also called an Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, explores the diverse ethnic groups and their cultures such as Gurung, Magar, Thakali along with the flora and fauna of the region.
