Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Annapurna Base Camp trek (ABC) is one of the most popular in Nepal and for good reason. It is moderate nature Trekking in Nepal but highly thrilling. The trek starts with a scenic 1 hr drive from Pokhara to Nayapul. The real hiking begins from Ghorapani Poonhill which takes your to the base camp of mount annapurna, the sunrise views from here are legendary. As we climb through ancient oak and rhododendron forest, across sparkling streams and past waterfalls, of snow and ice starts to unfold above us. The traditional villages of Nepal’s ethnic communities of the Gurung, Magar, and Thakali who will greet you very warmly if you cared to stop for a conversation.

 

This combination of pretty villages and terraced fields of millet and rice, coupled by the majestic splendour of Machapuchare (6,993m), Annapurna I and Hiunchuli (6,441m) make this an extremely rewarding trek. We walk out along a different route to our approach and enjoy the views of Annapurna I from a different angle. A short diversion up to Ghorepani Poon Hill (3,10m.) before leaving the Annapurna Conservation Area offers us a chance to obtain great views of another Himalayan giant - Dhaulagiri (8,167m). The Annapurna Base Camp trek (ABC) will be more interesting in Spring season and Autumn season as the whole forest along the trail turns red, pink and white with rhododendron flowers. The highlight of this trip is trekking into the Annapurna Sanctuary trek where your have spectacular views of mount Fishtail , Annapurna South, Fang, Gangapurna and the nearly vertical south face of Annapurna.
