The Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the most popular treks in the Nepalese Himalayas. This excellent medium-length trek in western Nepal takes you straight into the heart of the majestic Himalayas where you get to feast your eyes on spectacular panoramas of the surrounding mountains. This trek stands out as the most popular trek in Nepal because it encompasses a myriad of stunning crests, incorporates the breathtaking south face of Annapurna I (8,091m), and allows you to truly explore the Himalayan amphitheater.

The Annapurna Base Camp trek begins from Pokhara, a beautiful city in western Nepal with some wonderful lakes. From Pokhara, we take a short drive passing through terraced farmland and local villages. Having reached the trekking trail, we make our way through old oak and rhododendron woodland, crossing sparkling streams, with beautiful waterfalls gurgling in the background, the universe of snow and ice beginning to unfold above us. This blend of pristine villages, terraced fields of millet and rice, in combination with the splendor of amazing mountains such as Machhapuchhre, Annapurna and Himchuli, makes this trek truly worth the effort. Moving up the Modi Khola valley towards the sanctuary, we get to enjoy some amazing views of the mountains and witness high rock walls with waterfalls tumbling down into the thunder of the stream underneath. As the gorge extends, we climb to the Machhapuchhre Base Camp on the parallel moraine of the Annapurna South glacier.

The relentless climb to the Annapurna Base Camp gradually reveals the full splendor of the majestic colony of gorgeous Himalayan mountains. When we finally reach our destination, we are rewarded with amazing views of the full Himalayan panorama. A short trek to Poonhill at an altitude of 3,210 m offers us an opportunity to get extraordinary views of another Himalayan monster – Mt. Dhaulagiri.
