Annapurna Sanctuary Trek


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.

A full trekking experience with fantastic mountains and a rich a colourful heritage to discover.

Very Good
  1. Annapurna Sanctuary Trek
    I did Annapurna Circuit with 9 friends in April 2019 and it was amazing. The landscapes were breathtaking and the weather was perfect. Our guide Kamal Pandey and the two porters Rames and Barta were always ready to help us with everything we need. I would like to thank all of them on this way. I send you a big hug from Romania and all my friendship. I can not wait to meet you all again. For sure I will come back in Nepal and I want Kamal to be my guide again. Thank you Nepal Social Treks for everything!
  2. Annapurna Sanctuary Trek
    I had a great experience on Annapurna Sanctuary Trek with 10 Romanian friends, the greatest guide (Kamal Pandey) and 2 great porters (Sherjung Lama and Bartha) which made our trip easier and safer. Kamal was the best guide, joking and smiling all day, but very serious about our safety. I recommend Nepal Social Treks and Expedition, and Kamal Pandey; guide for a safe and memorable trip.
  3. Annapurna Sanctuary Trek
    I had this great experience only with the help of this awesome crew from Nepal Social Treks. They helped us so much with precious information about the trekking route, the peaks that we can see, food, HAS, etc. Kamal is an awesome guide and I recommend him because he has 9 years experience in mountain guiding, he knows every detail that you need to have a successful trek. Our porters Bartha and Rames were always smiling and willing to help with everything not only carrying our backpacks. If someone is behind, they wait, if someone is sick they try to cure, if someone is sad they will find a way to make them smile. Thank you guys, you were awesome and I can't wait to return back in Nepal for another adventure or why not mountain bike route.
