Your trek to Annapurna Sanctuary begins from the paradise city Pokhara. You can ride a car or public/private bus or even flight. Although there is only one entrance to the sanctuary itself, we follow locally known, lesser used approaches and exit routes on our premier Annapurna Base Camp Trek. The approach follows the Modi Khola valley through forests passing through local Gurung villages to a world of soaring peaks; trekking past Hinku cave, we reach what is known as the gate into the Sanctuary which is a pass between the spectacular peaks of Hiuchuli and Machhapuchhre. We can also visit Annapurna south base camp from here. The traditional villages host typical Nepalese hospitality with cultural setting in Gurung and Thakali way. Dazzling views confront us as we trek up through the last permanent settlement to Machhapuchhre Base Camp where we are rewarded with excellent views of fishtail mountain. There are availability of simple lodge to five star accommodation in cities to Kathmandu and Pokhara to provide you services and facilities. Trekking Annapurna Sanctuary finally reaches to an ends after you reach to Birethanti and drive Phedi.
