Introduction:

Our Ten days adventure trip to the Annapurna Sanctuary starts from Pokhara, a scenic spot, the great Annapurna area was first explored by the British Adventure Col. James O.M. 'Jimmy' Roberts in the year 1956 and exposed to the world as the 'Sanctuary of Gods'. The Sanctuary has been christened as "Annapurna Sanctuary" ever since. “Anna” means Food or Crops “Purna” means enough. The Annapurna Himal the giver or the goddess of harvest. The glacier feeds the River; the river irrigates the farm fields thus yielding enough crops to feed the human and all living beings.

The trek combines spectacular mountain scenery with incredible and cultural diversity and traverses through rural farms and villages. The trail leads towards the deep gorge between the peaks-Hiunchuli and Maccahapuchare and through the dense rain and bamboo forest of the narrow Modi Khola (river) valley then to the Sanctuary with immense walls of the mountain fortress. Once into the Sanctuary you will be in the midst of Amphitheater of snow peaks Annapurna (26,545ft-8,091m) Other major peaks overlooking the Sanctuary include the Annapurna south (23,693ft-7,219m), Gangapurna (24,457ft.-7,455m) and Annapurna III (24,787ft-7,555m) This area is also referred to as the Annapurna Base Camp and Maccahapuchare (Fish-tail) Base Camp. Our return journey, descend through the lush terraced Modi Khola  valley and finally concluding the adventure at Pokhara, a popular destination with its famed Phewa Lake, dominated by the towering mountain range of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu range including the majestic peak Maccahapuchare (Fish-Tail).
