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 Trekking, 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.
Annapurna Base Camp Trekking Route is designed for explorers who seek the stunning diversity without trekking on a strenuous trail. Suitable for trekkers with average physical fitness, this trek is at its best in the months of February to May and September to December.

Overall a very good trip. Lots of guidance from the company. Trekking Planner gave us a very extrovert and good English speaking guide, although still quite young in behaviour sometimes (e.g. often on phone). We were lucky to trek in offseason as we always had a very good room in teahouses and a very quiet hiking path. We definitely enjoyed these 10 days of trekking!
I came across trekking planner whilst looking for a new adventure and it was the best thing that could have happened. prior to our arrival in Nepal all correspondence with Trekking planner owner Dipak was prompt and helpful, Dipak was always on hand to manage our plans and we changed plans several times without any problems. Dipak collected us from the airport and ensured we settled into our hotel. He arranged for extra excursions an Everest flight and a stay in the national park (Chitwan). we had a lovely welcome meal and were given all the information for our planned trek.
Throughout the trek we felt safe and cared for by both our guide(Krishna) and porters. During the trek we had to change our plans (due to illness) this was no problem for our guide and he was fully supportive throughout the trek ensure we were happy and well. He spent time explaining our daily itinerary and ensured we had good rooms and plenty to eat during our trek. He was always happy to answer questions and spent time with us offering local information, socialising and playing cards. By the end of our 10 days we had become a family.
The service from trekking planner didn't end there Dipak checked on us during our stay at the national park, met us back in Kathmandu, ensured we were all happy and had enjoyed our trip, arranged transport to the airport and ensured we arrived home safely
the overall service from trekking planner, Dipak, Krishna and our porters was second to none, and I cant recommend Dipak and his company enough I would not hesitate to use his service again in the future.

This company surprised me with its excellent service and caring staff. I did a short 6 day Annapurna trek with a young and attentive guide named Dibash who was always willing to go the extra mile (often literally) to make sure I had the best possible experience. I finished my trek satisfied in every way, excepting perhaps the feeling that I could have gone on much longer!
My travel and accommodation around several cities in Nepal were also taken care of by Dipak, and I was quite pleased with this service as well. At the end of my stay I was even given complimentary transportation to the airport, accompanied by my guide and another friend I made in this incredible country.
Thank you Dipak, Dibash, and the rest of the company for an experience of Nepal that I'll never forget!
