Annapurna translates into “the Goddess of the Harvests”, is a section of the Himalayas located in north-central Nepal. Included in the Earth’s eight-thousanders, it is noted as one of the most precarious mountains to summit. However, the Annapurna Base Camp Trek enables you to spectacle this grand massif, in all its glory.

You will be in the midst of green fields and rhododendron forests, at a comfortable altitude, that does not demand extreme altitude acclimatization. This journey will lead you to the base camp, where you can see the snow caps of 12 mountains that are +7,000 meters.

The Annapurna Base Camp Trek an ideal trek for beginners who want to view the picturesque mountains with relative ease. The warmth of the residents and accounts of the enigmatic traditions of Nepal are riveting. The charm of the countryside is heightened with a panoramic view that is eternally imprinted into one’s memory.

The best season to trek Annapurna base camp is September through November and March through May. During spring season, the entire landscape gets covered with rhododendron flowers, creating an alluring vision. Going on the trek during monsoon season between June through August, is not advisable.

Joining the Nepal Hiking Team for this trek ensures a holiday that will empower you to experience the ethos of the fabled Shangri-la.

AMAZING TRIP EXPERIENCE
Veronica Jimenez From UK At
5 - Excellent
“My trekking journey at the Annapurna region was one of the most beautiful and amazing things I had done in my life. I loved the sights and the mountain views. I loved the villages and their people. I loved the monasteries and the Gumbas. I loved the vantage point at Poon Hill and the view of the mountains that looked like white melted fudge in the distance! An amazing trek with the best agency that I had the fortune of working with!”
