The most favourite route for trekkers, this area north of Pokhara offers dramatic close-up views of some of the highest and most beautiful mountains in the world. The Annapurna Sanctuary, a natural alpine amphitheatre completely surrounded by snow capped mountains all over 6100 metres, offers unrivalled trekking. This trek takes you through a variety of scenery, from the villages, farmland and jungle surrounding Pokhara, through alpine zones before coming into the Sanctuary itself, where you are completely surrounded by 6000, 7000 and 8000 meters Himalayan peaks at very close range.

Trekking up to the village of Ghorepani offers us breathtaking views of the Annapurnas. The next morning we ascend Pooh Hill at dawn to see sunrise on the mountains before the path takes us up the Modi Khola valley to the Annapurna Sanctuary. We spend time at both Machhupuchhare and Annapurna Base Camps, allowing us to fully appreciate both sunset and sunrise at both camps, and as an aid to our acclimatisation and to explore the Annapurna Sanctuary in depth.

Due to the incredible altitudinal range and consequent geographical and climatic variations, trekking in this area is a naturalists dream. In just 8 days we move from the sub-tropical areas around Pokhara to the high Tundra and glaciers of the Annapurna Sanctuary.
The inhabitants of the lower areas are mostly Gurungs and Magars, races that make up the backbone of the famous Gorkha regiments of the British and Indian armies. Pokhara is mainly inhabited by Newars, the lowland traders of Nepal. The return trail of the trek follows one of the most important of the ancient trading routes over the Himalaya, and is also a major pilgrimage route to Muktinath.

The cost is inclusive of trekkers insurance covering medical, accidental and heli rescue for 12 days KTM-KTM duration
