Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

An adventure in the heart of massive Annapurna Himalaya mountain range

One of the best short trekking trips to the base camp of mountains above 8,000 m in the Himalayan range. Annapurna Sanctuary is an adventure destination of little more than a week duration that takes you in heart of the heart of mighty Annapurna Himalayas.

The charm and beauty of this trekking trip are undefinable, as it covers the Trans Himalayan landscape with diverse biodiversity ranging from subtropical evergreen forests, colorful Rhododendron forests, and alpine pastures. Walking past Gurung ethnic villages on stone-stepped trails; along the Modi riverbank overlooking the grand mountain, the vistas is truly mesmerizing.

Annapurna base camp is located in a hidden pocket, enclosed by the panorama of snow-clad peaks. Annapurna Himalayas is one of the most popular and beautiful ranges with more than a dozen peaks. The main peak is Annapurna-I, the world’s 10th highest at 8, 091 m / 26,545 feet, along with Annapurna-II, -III, IV, Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Fish-Tail, and Gangapurna Himal. As well as many other lesser peaks below 6,000 m, an amazing country to enjoy the adventure.

The best feature of Annapurna Base Camp trekking is that the chance of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) is little to none. The altitude gain is gradual with planned breaks before reaching the highest point of 4,130 m. During the winter season, skiing and snowboarding activities are also available.

The trek starts and completes at scenic Pokhara, a renowned tourist destination of Nepal. Blessed with natural beauty and surrounded by green hills with close views of Annapurna Himalaya that reflect on its serene Phewa and Begnas lakes.
