The Annapurna Himal is a vast massif with several peaks above 7000 m. Part of the range forms a natural amphitheatre known as the Annapurna Sanctuary, ringed by such giants as Annapurna I, Glacier Dome, Gangapurna, Fang and Machhapuchhare. We trek through forested hillsides to Ghorepani where we ascend Poon Hill for a magnificent panoramic sunrise of the Annapurnas and Dhaulagiri. Entering a narrow valley we pass directly below Machhapuchhare before reaching the Sanctuary, a veritable home of the Gods. We have a day to explore this magnificent place before returning to Pokhara via a different route. This is a fairly strenous alpine trek offering close-up mountain views equal to any in the Himalaya. Moderate to difficult trekking from 900 m to 3,700 m. Accommodation in comfortable lodges run by local families. The trek starts in Pokhara, clients carry day-pack only and walk at their own pace.
