Annapurna Sanctuary Trek
Join us for this 11 day inner and outer exploration, trekking one of the most stunning mountain ranges in the world. Our journey will be interwoven with ‘soul sessions’ meant to realign yourself through all layers of being.
We encourage conscious travel - being mindful of the culture and people of where we are visiting. We select local guides and infuse our wandering with experiences that are cognizant of the people and the environment. We will encounter beautiful landscapes, fresh air, nature, immersion in village and interactions with Nepalese culture. There will be an opportunity for stellar photography however we encourage you to keep tech use to a minimum. We will have a photographer on staff to capture moments so you can stay present on your journey.
