About Annapurna Base Camp Trek

The trail spanning in the Annapurna Base Camp trek encompasses the region owing to the belief of the Magar and Gurung tribe according to whom the region is home to the gods and a huge deposit of gold and precious metals. Each peak, waterfall, river, and forest in the trek to ABC has its own story surrounded by the local lore and the next day brings something different utterly unexpected. The base camp itself is a snowy coliseum of herculean glaciers and the lofty Himalayas piercing the silvery skyline. All in all, the Annapurna Sanctuary trek is a grand journey mixes both the cultural and natural aspects of the Annapurna region.

The Annapurna Base Camp Trekking begins from the trail-head at Pokhara. The city of lakes surrounded by mesmerizing landscapes is a 7-hour drive away from Kathmandu beyond which we begin our trekking. We begin our adventure from Nayapul towards Tikhedhunga heading to Ghorepani right on the foot of the mesmerizing Poonhill.

Through lush green forests filled with oak, juniper and rhododendron treks we continue our journey through vibrant hamlets of Ghorepani, Tadapani finally landing at Chhomrong. Guided by the majestic Himalayas of Annapurna Himalayan range we continue our journey in the Annapurna base camp trek route towards the settlement of Dovan and Deurali. The following day, we finally reach the base of the world's 10th tallest mountain Annapurna (8,091m) surrounded by the majestic Himalayas stretching towards the horizon. Machhapuchhre (6,997m), Annapurna I (8,091m), Annapurna South (7,219m), Hiunchuli (6441m) to name among the few presents.
