The Annapurna Sanctuary, Tour

    The Annapurna Sanctuary is the name given to a tremendous glacial basin which lies to the north of Pokhara. The classic trek up the Modi Khola Valley and into the heart of this vast natural amphitheatre culminates at Annapurna Base Camp, below the awesome south face of Annapurna (8091m). Rising some 10,000 feet above the glacier this is one of the world’s most famous mountaineering challenges, and without any question one of the most spectacular sights in the Himalaya. Our trek begins in Pokhara where we ascend through breathtaking forests of oak and magnolia, which occasionally part to give tantalising views of the mountains ahead. As we climb higher, we glimpse the fluted peak of Machhapuchhare (6991m), known as the Fishtail Peak because of its distinctive summit shape. As we trek deep into the gorge of the Modi Khola, the walls of the mountains rise so steeply above us that for a while all views are lost. But eventually we emerge into the heart of the sanctuary and little by little the vastness of this unique amphitheatre reveals itself to us. Above our campsite rears a tremendous wall of ice and rock containing eleven of Nepal’s major peaks, and at the centre of this magnificent scene is Annapurna’s massive South Face, climbed by Chris Bonington’s landmark 1970 expedition. Eventually we leave this rugged world of ice and rock and descend to the verdant fields of Ghorapani. Above this bustling village is one of the finest viewpoints in Nepal, and our dawn ascent of Poon Hill provides a breathtaking panorama from the peaks of the Sanctuary right across the Kali Gandaki Valley to Dhaulagiri.

Passing through forests and villages with the very welcoming tea houses, this day's trek keeps us on the ridge with fabulous vistas until Deurali (6,890 ft), the high point of this walk, then descending to Bheri Kharka - Sheep Pasture, high above the Modi Khola valley for lunch Not far away lies Landrung where you will spend overnight at tents.

A grand days walk which takes you into the Modi Khola valley with views of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Gangapurna and Machapuchhare.

Day 09 - Chomrung - Dovan (8,530 ft)
Despite modest linear distance covered the trail makes a constant switch back through the Modi Khola gorge. In the initial stage of the walk the route gives the possibility of views but later as the trailheads among rhododendron and bamboo forests it gets scarce but here the birds and Languar monkeys abound. You stop at Bamboo for lunch - a teashop amidst, one can guess - bamboo. An hour's walk reaches you to Dovan a place with three teahouses in a narrow, shaded valley.

Day 10 - Dovan - Machapucchare Base Camp (12,139 ft)
Now as you walk in the deep Modi Khola valley the trail winds up among bambook thickets and forest to the famous Hinku cave that once housed a lodge. The cave lies separated from Deurali, the lunch spot by a stream that flows right off the Hiunchuli Peak that looms above you. Beyond Deurali the temperature vegetation quickly transforms into short, stunted Alpine. Lying too close to Machapuchhare and the surrounding Mountains the views from Machapuchhare Base Camp may not be up to your expectation. But to be able to enjoy the next few days. Stay of a night here is a wise move.
