The Annapurna sanctuary is the classic trek to Annapurna base camp situated under the immense south face of Annapurna. Many Streams, waterfalls, tropical vegetation and green fields make the scenery at this tour to an unforgettable experience. The trek passes through the middle hills of Nepal with Gurung villages and forests of oak, magnolia and rhododendron.
The trail then follows the Modi Khola River into the Sanctuary where you enter a hidden amphitheater with a superb view of snowy peaks. From Annapurna Base Camp you will see Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna Fang, Annapurna 1 and 3, Gangapurna and Machhapuchhare (known as the Fishtail because of its distinctive shape).This is not a particularly difficult trek although there are some steep climbs and a few narrow bridges. It is a good trek to do if you would like to get into the high Himalayas without the longer acclimatisation period required for some of the other treks. The highest altitude reached is 4,130m at Annapurna Base Camp.
