Quite simply one of the best treks you’ll ever make

Trek along the Modi Khola valley and marvel at the Annapurna range towering over you. This walk to the incredible mountain amphitheatre known as the “sanctuary” takes you to Annapurna I south face base camp. The Sanctuary’s commanding position in the heart of the Annapurnas makes the mountains seem so close, you could reach out and touch them.
