Annapurna Base Camp trek is a popular destination in the Annapurna region. It takes you to the foothills of the eight-thousander Mount Annapurna. The trek is an amazing way of experiencing a blend of Himalayan tradition, mountain vistas, forests and the Himalayan ecosystem.
The trek will begin in the beautiful city of Pokhara. We will head towards Ghorepani, Chhomrong, Macchapuchre Base Camp and pass through lush forests for our trek. You will pass through farmlands and gorges that show off the beautiful Annapurna range, Hiuchuli, and Machhapuchre mountains. Throughout these experiences, you will also meet many people from the Magar and Gurung communities. The dominance of Buddhist culture is evident in the local villages throughout the trek.
Not only is the trekking trail full of new experiences about culture and religion, but it is also rich naturally. Annapurna Base Camp trek trails is enclosed within Annapurna Conservation Area‘s protected area. This area is rich in wildlife and houses lush forests and many Himalayan floras and fauna. Throughout the trek, you can find many beautiful vistas of snow-capped mountains, primarily the Annapurna range.
The trek is moderately challenging as it takes 9 days to complete and calls for an ascent up to Annapurna Base Camp (4130 m). There are many rocky routes and steep ascents; the steps at Ulleri are particularly unpopular. However, such exhaustion is worth it as you get blessed with majestic views and extraordinary landscapes.
