A journal entry from: Annapurna Base Camp

Annapurna I (8,091m), is the 10th highest mountain in the world and will be forever known as the first 8,000m peak to be climbed by Herzog?s French party in 1950?s.

The trek into the area below the massive south face of Annapurna (7,219m) known as the Annapurna Sanctuary is one of the most popular treks in Nepal. The trek begins in Pokhara and leads up through the breathtaking Modi Khola gorge into the vast mountain ringed amphitheatre of the Sanctuary. As we trek through bamboo and rhododendron forests we have superb views of the Annapurna range. We eventually pass between the mountains of Machhapuchhre (6,993m) and Hiunchuli (6,441m) which guard the entrance to the Sanctuary, and after 6 days reach our goal, the high glacial basin that is the site of the Annapurna South face base camp at 4,130m.

This is a classic trek which allows access to the high mountains of the Himalaya within a reasonable timeframe and with a maximum altitude of 4,130m. Accommodation and food is provided in the local lodges.
