The Annapurna Sanctuary Trek is a classic one, located in the heart of the Annapurna massif it begins from Nayapul (a one hour drive from Pokhara) and goes up to the heart of Annapurna Base Camp. ABC and MBC these base camps serve both climbers attempting summits of the 8000 meter Himalayan peaks of the Annapurna range and trekkers visiting one the most recognised world climbing areas, known also as the Annapurna Sanctuary.Machhapuchhare Himal stands out on the way an extraordinarily spectacular holy peak it is a restricted for summit climbs but its base camp is famous for trekkers longing to experience the classic Himalayan adventure.
This trek provides spectacular vistas of the major peaks of the western parts of the great Annapurna Himal (range), including Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Ganagapurna, Annapurna III and Machhapuchhare. These mountains form almost precisely a circle about ten miles in diameter with a deep glacier-covered amphitheatre at the centre. From this glacier basin, the ModiKhola sneaks its way south through a narrow gorge. Further south, the gorge opens up into a wide and fertile valley, the domain of the Gurungs an indigenous community of Nepal.
