I gather that there is no access to the Sanctuary but would appreciate it if anyone who has visited the area could recommend a suitable circular trek with good views of the peaks. Thanks

NO INFO, sorry. But I always feel the story of the most famous ascent is so poignant, the guy's daughter named after the peak actually dies on the mountain and, very strangely, just gets rolled off a ledge rather than brought back down.

Would be worth you buying the Lonely Planet guide to Trekking in the Indian Himalaya http://shop.lonelyplanet.com/asia/trekking-in-the-indian-himalaya-5/trekking-in-the-indian-himalaya-...

You could try the Indian Mountaineering Foundation direct.
I organised an expedition to climb a 6000m peak in the Pindari Valley in 2005.
Martin Moran runs expeditions in that area, he was very helpful to us despite the fact we were going independent.
He did recommend a good local firm who did our logistics.
Also got a 1:200,000 map from Stanford's.
