Trip Overview

This trek, also known as the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, is one of the most famous short treks in Nepal and its popularity is well deserved! This route will take you to the very foot of some of the tallest mountains in the world. The trail starts from the pretty Gurung village of Ghandruk and ascends through rice paddies, a narrow valley of bamboo and forests before opening to the magnificent amphitheatre of glaciers and soaring peaks in every direction, such as Annapurna South, Annapurna I and Machhapuchare, the Fishtail mountain.

This trek is similar to Everest Base Camp Trek but less intense.

Time spent exploring timeless Kathmandu and relaxing in the lakeside town of Pokhara before and after the trek completes your adventure with insights into Nepali culture and traditions.
