Annapurna Base Camp Trekking
Annapurna Base Camp Trekking Route is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world. Furthermore, it is one of the top ten trekking trails throughout the world. From the tranquil yet touristic lakes in Pokhara to the hamlets strewn by prayer flags nestled in the higher altitudes explorers have a lot to enjoy. You get to experience the unique culture of Gurung and other indigenous communities. Annapurna Conservation Area also boasts diverse landscapes and vegetation; rare species of flora and fauna; and several historical and cultural heritage sites.
The Annapurna Base Camp Trekking starts from the beautiful city of Pokhara. Also known as the the City of Lakes, Pokhara is the unofficial tourist capital of Nepal. We may have either the beautiful Dhampus or the small hamlet of Nayapul as the starting point of the trek. Wandering through the lively settlements along the Bhurungdi River, the trekking trail traverses through colorful rhododendron and pine forests. We will also visit the Magar community dominated Ulleri village, ancient trade stoppage of Ghorepani and the breathtaking Poonhill. Stone steps carved in several sections of the trail lead the way to the base camp of Fishtail Mountain and the domineering Annapurna Mountain.
After creating memories with the up-close views of the glittering mountains, rolling hills and the truly outstanding sunrises and sunsets, we shall retrace our steps through the rough and rocky terrain to relax at the natural hot springs in Jhinu Danda. The trek then traverses through the Valley of Modi River. Then back to the scenic city of Pokhara before returning to the medieval capital of Kathmandu. In this adventure, you shall enjoy diverse scenery and cultural richness. During the Annapurna Base Camp Trek, marvel at the sight of golden sunlight spreading majestically over the distant peaks. Trek from the mossy jungles at lower altitude to the snow-clad expanses in the higher elevation.
