Annapurna Sanctuary Trek

Also knows as Annapurna Base Camp trek, this is a spectacular trek to south face of Annapurna one (8091m) with breathtaking views of Fishtail peak(6993m), Dhaulagiri (8107m) and the Annapurna range.
The trail upto the Annapurna Base Camp is a classic walk that starts from the paddy fields, leads through traditional Gurung villages, rhododendron forests, gorge of bamboo forest and ends at the point where you are surrounded by soaring peaks and glaciers.
The trek starts after a 41 km drive from Pokhara to Nayapul. From here it is a pleasant hour walk to Birethati alongside Modi Khola (river) with a wonderful view of Fishtail peak and to Tikhedhunga.
The second day is the strenuous part of the trek with more than 3000 stone steps to be climbed before reaching Ulleri. The reward of scaling these 3000 steps is the good views of Annapurna south and Hiuchuli. Ghorepani, Poonhill, Chhomrong are all renowned for its spectacular views.
From Chhomrong the trail first drops down and climbs up through rhododendron forests to Khuldi(2470m). After Dovan the trail passes through dense bamboo forest and then climbs up to Machhapuchare base Camp after crossing few avalanches.
The trail returns back to Chhomrong and from here we take a next route via Landruk, a Gurung village which stretches 500m up the hillside upto Phedi, a few kilometers from Pokhara.
