There are very few treks on the planet that bring you in close proximity of peaks that rise to height of 7000 to 8000 meters without forcing you to push yourself to the very limit, and the Annapurna Base Camp Trek is one of them. This beautiful adventure takes you through rice paddies, high-altitude scenery and beautiful rhododendron forests before introducing you to majestic peaks that leave you speechless with their stunning beauty.

The setting of Annapurna Base Camp at 4130 m is unique and incredibly spectacular, set amidst the majestic peaks of Annapurna I (8091 m), Annapurna South (7219 m), Machapuchhre (6993 m) and Hiunchuli (6441 m).

The Annapurna Base Camp Trek takes 7 to 11 days, depending on your itinerary and length of walking days. The itinerary presented here takes 11 days, starting from Nayapul (a 1 1/2 hour drive from Pokhara) and going north up to Gorepani and the famous viewpoint of Poon Hill. From Gorepani, you go eastward to Chomrong and then north again entering the Modi Kola Valley which leads up to the Base Camp.

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking is the perfect way to get up-close and personal with the great Himalayas as the base camp is surrounded by some of the most spectacular Himalayan peaks. Imagine the scene of a few houses dominated by a complete ring of Himalayan peaks; that is a view worth dying for, a view that is yours for the taking at the Annapurna Base Camp.

There are several established lodges on the way, so it is practical to trek light. This is a moderate trekking route suitable for both novice and experienced trekkers.

“The views high up are worth every step . It's hard work but, you are trekking in the Himalaya's so, you expect that. What is interesting is that, every day, when you get to the day's destination, you forget that it was hard work during the trek and wonder at the scenery before you. Totally Recommended”

“We had a wonderful experience trekking to Annapurna base camp. To be able to hike next to these mountainous giants was breathtaking and an experience I will never forget. We had the pleasure to be accompanied by Purna, who was our excellent guide. His pace was perfect for this trek, in the evening we had lots of fun talking or playing cards, and he was concerned with our well-being at all times! In conclusion, we had the most amazing time at ABC and if we come back we will definitely ask for Purna to be our guide again!”
Super fun time!
