“First time trekking in Nepal with equally inexperienced friends and we did the ABC trek with Outshine Adventure. The whole experience was great - Gokul was very responsive from the beginning and accommodative to our changes and requests. Special shout out to our guide Chhabi who was extremely patient and resourceful which made the trek so much more manageable.”

Mount Annapurna in sight, from Annapurna Base Camp

Annapurna Base Camp lies at a height of 4,230 meters and is where mountaineers start their summit of Annapurna I, the 10th highest peak in the world at 8,091 meters. The ABC trail traverses a variety of terrain ranging from glacier moraine and rice terraces to rocky stone steps and, along the way, offers an amphitheater of huge Himalayan peaks.

In addition to great scenery, the trek takes you through the villages of the ethnic communities of Gurung and Thakali, the latter renowned for their incredibly tasty Dal Bhat, also known as ‘Thakali’ sets. While this trek can be undertaken all year round, it is especially beautiful during spring as rhododendron flowers along the trail turn red, pink and white. The Annapurna Base Camp trek is a classic trail and is recommended for anyone looking for a great trekking experience!
