Visiting Nepal has been the dream of my childhood since I have memory. I can not wait to live it now! I have made the Camino de Santiago a couple of times, making three weeks of trekking in each one. I am not very experienced doing trekking, but I like this kind of challenges and activities.

For those with limited time, the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek offers a journey of shifting landscapes; from the lush middle hills to the cauldron of ice and rock at Annapurna Base Camp, referred to as the Annapurna Sanctuary for the high mountain walls that surround it. The trail passes through a steep narrow valley with Machapuchare (Fish Tail Mountain)] towering above the valley. The view at Annapurna Base Camp is awe-inspiring as you stare up at the whiteface of Annapurna I surrounded by snowclad peaks in every direction. This trek is most comfortably done in 9 days but for those with even more limited time it is possible to do this trek in as few as 7 days. Add the Short Modi Kola Start option to reduce the trekking by a day. Add the 'Annapurna Base Camp Day Visit' option to reduce the trek by another day. This is least desirable since the best weather is often early in the morning.

Weather Conditions in July

July is well into the monsoon season. Low elevations are hot and humid, with at least some rain likely during each day. At higher altitudes, the weather is cool and damp. But the clouds are usually the most frustrating part of monsoon trekking.
