Two days to explore the Sanctuary. We stay in a lodge near to Annapurna Base Camp (4130m), 1-2 hours away from Machapuchare Base Camp. The panorama is magnificent. The enormous south face of Annapurna towers above to the northwest and we are surrounded on all sides by snow capped peaks, fluted walls of ice and enormous rock buttresses.
