Annapurna base camp trek
The combination of easy walking and majestic scenery makes the trek commonly known as Annapurna Sanctuary.
The Annapurna Base camp trekking is one of the popular trekking destinations in Nepal. It is the moderate and classic trek to the Annapurna Base Camp (4200m) within the beautiful lush of the Annapurna Sanctuary.
Annapurna Base camp trekking is well known for the beautiful scenery of the high peaks as well as the traditionally and culturally rich Gurungs and Magar dominated villages. The trek starts from the Nayapul after the exploration of the beautiful valley of Pokhara. The trekking to the Annapurna base camp gives you an opportunity to have the panoramic views of the Mt Annapurna I, Annapurna III (7555m), Gangapurna (7454m) and Machhapuchchhre (6999m), Lamjung himals(6986m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Nilgiri(7041m), and many more peaks circling around the route. To be noted Annapurna I is one of the tenth highest peak of the world. This isolated cirque of peaks can only be approached by one route, a deep gorge that carves into the fortress of mountains between Machhapuchhre and Hiunchuli. The trail climbs gently through traditional villages, terraced fields on the bank of Modi river, waterfalls and lush rhododendron forests. Not only this you will find the diversity of the flora and fauna in the protected regions of Annapurna. The trek gives the experience of the blend of the splendid beauty of nature, precise cultural hospitality along with the wilderness journey to face that you will rarely get elsewhere.
