Overview

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is one of the most popular treks in Nepal. It is surrounded by awesome Himalayas including south face of Annapurna I (8091). ABC lies at the altitude of 4130m from the sea level. It begins from Modi River in Nayapul after a short drive from Pokhara. We can see wonderful sceneries along the highway to Nayapul. Also, we can see Peace Stupa and parts of the Annapurna range while driving.

ABC trek is also known as Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. The lowlands, hillside villages, majestic waterfalls, streams and rivers, hot springs, rice and fields are the highlights of the trek. Most of the hiking trails of Annapurna are on stone step. It involves some arduous hiking such of Ulleri, Shinwa and also Chhomrong. In the forest trail of bamboos and rhododendron, we can see wildlife such as monkeys, blue sheep and the red panda. The trek gives a variety of views from rice terraces to glacier moraine and outstanding high mountains.

Machhapuchhre (6993m), Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna South (7219m), Hiuchuli (6441) etc are the major peaks of Annapurna region. Additionally, we can see Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m) from Poon Hill. During rainy season, people herd sheep and goats on grassy ridges just by the base camp. We spend more than a week in the mountains before heading back to Pokhara and then Kathmandu.

Pokhara is a beautiful lakeside city in central Nepal. Phewa lake is one of the most popular lakes in Nepal. In the middle of the lake, there is Barahi temple, frequented by many Hindu tourists. We visit the international museum, Gorkha Museum, and Seti gorge – a bonus tour of Annapurna Base Camp Trek.
