Annapurna Sanctuary Trek + Trisuli Rafting + Jungle Safari - Price US$ 1160.50

Annapurna Sanctuary TrekkingThe Annapurna Sanctuary Trek is a true classic, amidst some of the highest and most spectacular mountains in the world. Many of the peaks are over 7000m, including the famous twin-peaked Machapuchare, as well as Annapurna 1 and lll, Annapurna South, Gangapurna and Glacier Dome. Our trek begins in the terraced foothills close to Pokhara. The Dhampus Ridge gives us our first good views of the mountains and, as we pass through local farming communities, the vista becomes more impressive. We pass through the Gurung villages of Landrung and Chomrong, the latter offering rhododendron and bamboo forests to Hinko Cave. Beyond Hinko, we soon see excellent views of Annapurna South and Machapuchare. After spending the night in Chomrong, we climb high above the Modi Khola River, through the 'gates' of the Sanctuary. Once inside, we are afforded incredible views of the mountains from Machupuchare Base Camp, 3480m,and Annapurna Base Camp, 3900m, where we will spend a rest day. After this we begin our descent to Pokhara, via Ghorepani. We spend the night here in order to make an early morning ascent of Poon Hill, to see the spectacular sunrise over the Himalaya.
