Annapurna sanctuary trekking offers spectacular mountain scenery, charming settlements of Gurungs and their slate-roofed houses, incredible rhododendron forests ablaze with ivory, rose, apricot and crimson bouquets and deep sub-tropical valleys all set below the Annapurna and Dhualagiri range. Trekking to the Annapurna Sanctuary along local trails, through forests, villages and terraced farmland, you will be treated to unparalleled mountain scenery and a unique opportunity to experience Nepalese life and culture. Three days will be spent in the Sanctuary, exploring around Annapurna and Machhapuchhre Base Camp, surrounded by enormous glaciers and dwarfed by the imposing Annapurna range.
The sunrise over Machhapuchhre or Fishtail (6,993m) from Poonhill is simply breath taking as the sun changes its color from pink to gold to silver a rewarding experience. All this combined with time in Kathmandu and Pokhara allows you to discover the best of Nepal at a relaxed yet constantly stimulating pace.
