The Annapurna Sanctuary Trek tour starts and ends in Kathmandu. The Annapurna Sanctuary Trek is a trekking tour that takes 15 days taking you through Kathmandu, Nepal and other destinations in Nepal.

The Annapurna Himal is a vast massif with several peaks above 7000m. Part of the range forms a natural amphitheatre known as the Annapurna Sanctuary, ringed by such giants as Annapurna 1, Glacier Dome, Gangapurna, Fang and Machhapuchhare. The trek starts through forested hillsides before arriving into the Sanctuary with its panoramic views of the Annapurna. At higher altitudes the close-up mountain views are perhaps the finest in the world. There is a day to explore this breathtaking mountain arena before returning to Pokhara via a different route.
