Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is Wonderful Himalayan Scenery

Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the best trekking routes to find beautiful scenery with the various mountains soaring high above the land with rich mountain vistas, terraced fields, traditional culture, quaint Gurung villages and a wide variety of flora and fauna.  This trek is very short compared to most walks in this region with an 11-day itinerary leading up to the base camp. This trekking route is also known as the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. It is the one of the most prominent treks in Nepal and is popular for the magnificent views of the Annapurna Himalayan region. It is the biggest conservation area of Nepal with 7,639 square kilometers. This area is protected by the Annapurna conservation area project (ACAP).

Annapurna Base Camp trek route starts from either Nayapul or DhampusPhedi, There are three options for doing ABC. Travelers who wish to trek to Annapurna Base Camp in a more relaxed manner can trek a different route like the Annapurna Sanctuary trek taking 7 to 14 days.

We trek through the rhododendron forest of the Hinku Cave, traverse via the Gurung village of Chomrong and Landrung following the Modi Khola. After you pass further to the south this gorge turns out to be ever wider and give rise to a productive valley where Gurung people live. We reach our destination via Mt. Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) which is revered by the Nepalese for its unique beauty. We will walk 6/7 hours every day stopping on the way for lunch and continue trekking until the overnight destination at a lodge.

This trip is organized by Everest Trekking Routes who have over 20 years’ experience in Trekking Guides, Tours, Peak Climbing and many others activities in Nepal.
