overview

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking is a wonderful trekking journey across the serene trail in the Annapurna region. This trek falls in the category of the popular treks here in Nepal. During the trekking season, there is a high inflow of trekkers making the lodging and food facility inadequate sometimes. People love this trek because of the less probability of acclimatization issues when compared to other treks like the Everest Base Camp Trek.

There are some long ups and downs on this trek along with stone-filled steps but it is not very cumbersome when we walk beside our team members and enjoy the scenic natural beauty of this region. As we move uphill scaling higher elevation, we will be taken aback by the sight of the panoramic peaks like Hiunchuli, Annapurna South and Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) peaks. It is a great pleasure to walk across a lush green forest with beautiful rhododendron flowers. The Annapurna Base Camp trekking can be done at any time of the year where each season has its pros and cons in terms of weather, trail difficult and the panorama.

Tour Highlights

  • Panoramic view of the Annapurna peaks like Annapurna I, Annapurna South, Machhapuchhre, Hiunchuli, Gangapurna and so on
  • Explore the rich Gurung culture and lifestyle of Ghandruk and the close sight of Hiunchuli, Fishtail, and the Annapurna South
  • Diverse wildlife and vegetation along the trekking path
