The Annapurna Sanctuary / Base camp trek is a hike into the dazzling natural amphitheatre formed by the staggeringly beautiful peaks of the giants – Annapurna 1, Glacier Dome, Gangapurna, Fang and the fishtail peak of Machapuchare. Although there is only one entrance to the sanctuary itself, we follow locally known, lesser-used approaches and exit routes on our premier Annapurna Sanctuary Trek
The vast amphitheater of the Annapurna Sanctuary is encircled by the famous Himalayan peaks – the ‘fishtail’ spire of Machapuchare (6997m), Gangapurna (7454m), Annapurna 1 (8091m), the unclimbed Fang (7647m) and Annapurna South (7273m). The only approach follows the Modi Khola Valley through forests of oak, rhododendron and bamboo, passing through local Gurung villages to a world of soaring peaks.
