You will be trekking along the southern slopes of the Annapurna Himal offering dramatic close-up views of either the Annapurna range or the Dhaulagiri range. The reward to effort ratio is higher on this trek than any other Nepal trek. Our goal is the glacier-covered amphitheater of the 4200 m Annapurna Sanctuary. Here you will be ringed by the peaks of the Annapurna Himal including Annapurna I and the "Fishtail" peak of Machhapuchhare. You return to Pokhara by way of Birethanti. The 10-days trek is non-technical and suitable for anyone in good shape who likes to hike over mountain trail and stay at rustic lodges.
