Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

Trip Description

The Annapurna Base Camp Trek is believed to be one of our most popular treks in the world. Mt. Annapurna rises to 8091m and is the 10th highest mountain in the world. The Annapurna region lies in the foothill of Mt. Annapurna in North-central Nepal stretching along with Lamjung Himal from the Kali Gandaki in the west to the Marshyangdi in the east. This invigorating trek to Annapurna Base Camp passes through waterfalls, villages, farmlands, rhododendron forests, and mountain vistas. The Annapurna Base Camp trek, like others in the Annapurna region, takes off from the lake city of Pokhara at a mere height of around 800 meters to a high altitude of over 4,000 meters with gradual acclimatization process. We also pass through a diverse geographical and cultural variation with amazing ranges of flora and fauna in between. Needless to say that throughout this trekking journey we get to enjoy the sheer magnificence of the Himalayas, including two mountains that are above eight thousand meters - Mt. Annapurna (8091 m) and Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m); hospitality and rich culture of the local community and the brilliance of nature. Just imagine being in the company of some of the highest mountains on earth and the magnificence of the sunrise over the snow-capped Himalayas. Extraordinary! The Annapurna Base Camp Trek itinerary is designed for the trekkers who would like to get to Annapurna Base Camp but are restricted time-wise. If we would like to go for the Annapurna Base camp trek more relaxed way, it is better to sign up with Annapurna Sanctuary Trek-18 days. If we want more longer trek over a challenging Pass in Annapurna region, Annapurna Circuit Trek-21 days would be best option as it passes through famous high pass of the world, Thorong La.
