Annapurna Base Camp Trek is one of the most popular treks in Nepal. Located in the western foothills of the Annapurna Himalaya, it offers fantastic views of snow-capped high mountains with a landscape of terraced fields without the worries of altitude sickness. This is a good introductory route for a close encounter with the Himalaya within a short period of time. We explore the heart of the Annapurna as we trek into the Annapurna Base Camp, which is the most spectacular spot for a dramatic panoramic view of towering snow-capped peaks and close-up encounter with the glacier. The trail follows forested path while crossing through beautiful villages of different ethnic people.

The Annapurna Base Camp trek is a moderate level journey that can be started from Nayapul, Kande or Phedi, a scenic short drives from Pokhara. The trek takes you to the foot (Base Camp, 4130m) of Annapurna I (8091 m) , one of the most glorious and 10th highest peak in the world. The trail takes you through various charming traditional villages including Nepal’s ethnic communities of the Gurung, Magar, Bramhin, Chhetri and Thakali who will greet you very warmly as you pass by. The journey continues as you walk through dense rhododendron forests with towering snowy peaks in the background. The walk becomes fascinating as we arrive at Ghorepani, where you witness breathtaking views of an early morning sunrise over the Himalaya from Poon Hill view tower (3210 m). The scenery seen throughout this trek graces the landscape of the Himalaya where imagination defines the beauty of nature as an experience that can never be forgotten.
