Package Description

This classic route in the Annapurna region is also called Annapurna sanctuary trek. The trek to Annapurna base camp combines some of the most spectacular Himalayan scenery with a fascinating insight into the life of middle hills of Nepal. The site of the base camp is used by expeditions attempting the massif south face of Annapurna I. The principal peaks of the western portion of the great Annapurna Himal, including Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Fang, Annapurna, Ganagapurna, Annapurna 3 and Machhapuchhare, are arranged almost precisely in a circle about 10 miles in diameter with a deep glacier-covered amphitheater at the center. From this glacier basin, known as the Annapurna Sanctuary, the Modi Khola knifes its way south in a narrow gorge fully 12,000 ft. deep. Further south, the gorge opens up into a wide and fertile valley, the domain of the local ethnic group, Gurungs.

From the Pokhara, we start the adventure of the Annapurna Base Camp Trekking.  The principal peaks of the western portion of the great Annapurna Himal, including Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Fang, Annapurna, Gangapurna, Annapurna 3 and Machhapuchhre, are arranged almost precisely in a circle about 10 miles in diameter with a deep glacier-covered amphitheater at the center.
