highlights
  • Enjoy the 360 degree views of the Himalayas from the Annapurna Base Camp
  • Stay at the Machhapuchhre Base Camp
  • Trek through luscious rhododendron and bamboo forests
  • Learn more about the mountainous Gurung communities in the region
The trek to Annapurna Base Camp is one the most popular treks in Nepal, and for good reason. This relatively short trek takes you to the foot of both Machhapuchhre and the Annapurna range. The view from the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) is unparalleled as you're almost surrounded by a wall of snowcapped mountains: from Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Fang, Annapurna, Annapurna III and Machhapuchhre to Tent Peak and Fluted Peak.

On this 11-day guided trek, you'll pass through quaint Gurung settlements separated by wide valleys, swift waterfalls and lush rhododendron and bamboo forests. You'll also make your way to Poon Hill, famous for sunrise across its panoramic view of the Himalayas.

Great Annapurna experience

“I had a very good experience during my Annapurna Base Camp trek with Asian Heritage. I was doubting between only Poonhill, or the full experience, and I am so happy that I choose the second option. The experience is much more real and adventurous!”
6 hours 3 Star Hotel
Namaste!!! Welcome to Nepal! We are thrilled to welcome you to our country. We hope you will enjoy this experience as much as we do.

Today you will start your day at 6:30 am. We will move from the hotel to the tourist bus station to catch a bus to Pokhara. The bus will depart for Pokhara at 7 am and will stop for lunch and tea-breaks on the way.

On the way you will cross many hilly villages, like Naubise, Dharke, Dumre and Damauli, among others. You'll also get some glimpses of the Himalayas while driving along the Trishuli river. You will reach Pokhara at about 4 pm.
8 hours Guest house
After breakfast, our guide will pick you from your hotel and then drive you to Nayapul, which acts as the gateway to most destinations in the Annapurna region. From Nayapul, start hiking to Ulleri.

As you ascend with an ever-present pleasant breeze, you’ll start spotting terraced fields along the hills. After Tikhedhunga the trail becomes harder as you have to continuously climb uphill until you reach Ulleri.

Continuing our trek through forests and slowly onward to Ghorepani. The trail is much easier than the day before and much more enjoyable as we pass through amazing rhododendron and pine forests and cross short wooden bridges.

After a while, you’ll reach the Nangethathi and eventually Ghorepani village. From upper Ghorepani, you should be able to get an expansive view of the magnificent Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167 m) and accompanying mountains.

Today we'll head out early to catch the sunrise at Poon Hill (3,210 m), a popular vantage point. You'll see the sun rise across the Annapurna range and Dhaulagiri mountains.The trail to Poon Hill passes through culturally rich villages that are set against the background of majestic mountains.

You will return and have your breakfast at Ghorepani, and then commence your trek to Tadapani (2,650 m). The trek will begin through the thick forests of rhododendron, bamboo and oak. One can appreciate the numerous waterfalls, wild animals, birds in lush valleys along the way.

From Tadapani, we descend down and cross the Kimrung River. Then, we walk alongside the rice fields and little river-bank settlements before ascending to Chhomrong. From Chhomrong, we have a fantastic view of the Machhapuchhre and the Annapurna South.
Meals

7 hours Guest house
Today, we have a short but difficult section of the trail to cover. We descend more than two thousand stone steps to cross the Chhomrong River. Soon after you'll be welcomed by a great ascend to Sinuwa.

After some rest at Sinuwa, we descend some rocky steps and cross beautiful bamboo forests to reach Bamboo village (2,300 m). The village is famous for its large Lemurs colonies, and with little luck, you might be able to see a group of these long-tailed agile monkeys. We then have an easy trail ahead of us to reach Dovan.
Meals

We'll cross beautiful rhododendron and bamboo forests to reach Deurali and eventually to Hotel Himalaya. After passing the hotel, there's a steep climb through a much drier forest before reaching Hinku Cave. From here, the trail drops closer to the river before climbing again to Deurali (2,920 m).

After some rest, the trails lead to Modi Khola. Walking alongside the river, enjoy the beautiful scenery and then ascend to Machapuchare Base Camp (MBC). Here, you have an amazing view of Fishtail mountain, which changes its shape depending on the viewing angle.

If you wish to watch the sunrise at the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC), you'll have to wake up before dawn (3 am) and hike to the camp. The ascent takes about two hours.

The setting of the Annapurna Base Camp is absolutely unique. We get excellent views of the majestic Machhapuchhre along with Mt. Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Annapurna III, Gandharva Chuli and Gangapurna. It is also called Annapurna Sanctuary because of its oval-shaped plateau which is surrounded by a ring of mountains.

Arriving at ABC, we find ourselves face-to-face with the magical Annapurna I (8,091 m). The sunrise here is truly breathtaking and worth of the long, arduous journey. Take some time to soak up the scenery before descending to MBC and evetually to Deurali.

We take our earlier path back down to Himalaya, Dovan, Bamboo to Sinuwa. After a quick rest we'll descend to Chhomrong River before connecting to a newer route uphill to Jhinu. The hot springs at Jhinu are a great place to rejuvenate after the long trek.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
4 hours 3 Star Hotel
Today is the last day of trekking. You’ll start the day by descending down the stone steps and pass through more frequent villages and settlements. You'll also stumble across numerous farmlands and tea houses along the way. Easily make your way back to Nayapul where an Asian Heritage private jeep will be waiting to receive and transfer you to Pokhara.
Meals
