  • The sanctuary is the name given by J.O.M. ‘Jimmy’ Roberts to the central core of an almost complete circle of peaks he first explored in the spring of 1956.Sanctuary trek also called Annapurna Base Camp Trekking. It is a Incredible amphitheater whose sole access route is through the narrow, steep-walled and heavily vegetated gorge of the Modi Khola. It was in the heartland of this Sanctuary that the only expedition ever sanctioned to attempt Machhapurchhre had its base in 1957, and from where Chris Bonington’s expedition climbed the South Face of Annapurna in 1970. It makes a natural and rewarding objective for trek setting out from Pokhara.

The name Ghorepani in Nepali means horse-water owing to its role as an important campsite for traders before it became a trekker’s shop. Gorephani is an interesting place with small shops and stalls for selling local products and craft. The town has 2 parts : 1 in a saddle and the other a few hundred feet lower. Since Gorephani lies quite higher than our previous stop, we begin to feel the chilly weather especially in the evenings.
