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 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 the 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 a lower altitude to the snow-clad expanses in the higher elevation.

An unforgettable trek

Dipak and the guys from Trekking Planner are the friendliest and best trekking company in the Himalayas. These guys can book everything for you. They are well priced and very professional. We wanted a company that was all Nepalese and treated porters well. Our porters carried light loads and were paid well. They carried about half the weight that most companies required. Annapurna was an amazing trek for the entire journey. The villages, the people, the tea houses were beautiful and we felt very welcome everywhere. The mountains defy description. They are the tallest landforms on earth and the alpine environment of the Annapurna Sanctuary is unique and beautiful. It is a hard walk but quite within the grasp of most reasonably fit trekkers. I recommend this marvelous place and this excellent company as a wonderful introduction to the Himalayas.
