Trip Overview

One of the superb, best alpine treks to Machhapuchhre & Annapurna Base Camp, the Sanctuary of the Gods

The aptly named Annapurna Sanctuary is the most intensely scenic short trek in Nepal. Annapurna Himal is a vast massif with several peaks above 7000m. Part of the range forms a natural amphitheatre known as the Annapurna Sanctuary, ringed by such giants as Annapurna 1st, Glacier Dome, Gangapurna, Fang and Machhapuchhre. We trek through forested hillsides to Ghorepani where we ascend Poon Hill for a magnificent panoramic sunrise of the Annapurnas and Dhaulagiri Himalayas.

Entering a narrow valley we pass directly below Machhapuchhre before reaching the Sanctuary, a veritable home of the Gods. We have a day to explore this magnificent place before returning to Pokhara via a different route. This is a fairly strenuous alpine trek offering close-up mountain panoramic views equal to any in the Himalaya. We have designed the verities of programs to suite your holidays just find out.
