Annapurna Base Camp Trekking continues to be one of the most popular treks in Nepal, let alone the world for a reason. Annapurna Base Camp (4,140m) is a small campsite surrounded by a mighty amphitheater of mountains, including Machapuchhare (6,993m), Annapurna I (8091m), and Hiunchuli (6,441m).
This is one of the most beautiful treks that combines trekking in majestic scenery and experiencing a variety of cultures from numerous ethnic groups unmatched by any other treks in Nepal. The trek begins from lowland villages and lush green rice terraces. The ethnic villages of Ghandruk and Chhomrung are the most well-known localities in the region. The Gurung and Managi villages will give you a special opportunity to see the ethnic lifestyle and cultural riches of Himalayas. Observing and mingling with the locals can be the most rewarding experience during the trek, and is the highlight for most trekkers. As you continue to climb the high mountains, pastures and terraced fields, deep forests of oak, bamboo and rhododendron trees come alive.
At the high point of your journey, the trail across glacial moraines leads you into the sacred Annapurna Sanctuary, from where you will see undeniably beautiful and unimaginable panoramic imagery of the serene surroundings. See the magnificent sunrise and sunset upon these incredible mountains for a photo opportunity of a lifetime.
Annapurna Base Camp trek provides typical tea house accommodations run by the local people. Soak up your sore muscles in the natural hot springs as we descend from the high mountains. To make your journey simple and cheaper, there are fixed departure dates available for Annapurna Base Camp trekking.
