As we march forward from Deurali, we walk by Modi River as if we are aiming to reach the origin of Modi and we do so too. Continue steep climb drop us to Machhapuchre Base Camp (MBC). Machhapuchre is the virgin mountain as it has never been climbed up due to its peculiar shape. As we reach MBC, our eyes strike with Annapurna ahead backed up by the view of Machhapuchre.
Then, the moderate climb and walk land us to our ultimate fascinating destination Annapurna Base Camp. Annapurna Base Camp gives stunning views of Annapurna and the Dhaulagiri Ranges that include Mt. Annapurna I (8091 m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167 m), Mt. Manaslu (8163 m), Mt. Annapurna II (7937 m.), Mt. Annapurna III (7555 m), Mt. Annapurna IV (7525 m), Mt. Annapurna south (7219 m), Mt.
