Annapurna Base Camp Trek Training

Overview

If you really want to know what it feels like to be in the wonderland, Annapurna Base Camp Trek is certainly your thing.  It would not be unbelievable to state that you get to experience an exotic place that is beautiful and at the same time that gives you the joy of a life time. This 5 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek begins at one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Pokhara. Annapurna has derived its name from the popular cultural belief that she provides the food for all. In Sanskrit, Annapurna means copious of food. As its very name suggests, the trek guarantees you nothing short of fun, pleasure and a deep insight about the natural and cultural heritages of the tiny Himalayan country, Nepal.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is accompanied by the Modi River alongside and luxuriant rhododendron forests and bamboo bushes. As soon as we head out from Nayapul, which is the starting point of Annapurna Base Camp Trek, you feel saturated by the nature and an unidentifiable calm in your heart and soul. Not only do you get to know nature in person, you are going to have the opportunity of talking to the native residents along the way who are known for their hospitality and warmth. The Gurung, Thakali and Magar communities have one of the most special and unique cultures in the country. It is one-of-a-kind experience to be one of them for a while and rejoice their hospitality. Annapurna Base Camp Trek starts with the river bank of the Modi River and keeps changing the settings as you ascend uphill, it transforms its natural landscapes from the river bank to the thick forests and from lush green grazing lands to the paddy field.  Annapurna Base Camp Trek begins to raise the adrenaline level when these natural settings bid farewell and the giants themselves get down on the floor to check on you.

Beautiful mountains all around and serene nature everywhere, it does not get any better than this.  It can be almost unbelievable to get back home without a scratch and not even feeling fatigue after you have spent some days of your life at the most beautiful trail in the world. It feels unreal and you feel like there is nothing more you could bargain for when you see the colorful rhododendron blossoming along the trek, nine species of rhododendron, to be specific. If that is not enough, this region is shelter to 100 species of mammals, 60 reptiles and amphibians and more than 450 species of different birds.

Once you are at the end of the Annapurna Base Camp Trek, you will be in dilemma as it is difficult to choose yourself the best route back because there are too many to choose from.
