Annapurna Base Camp Trek

15 Days

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is one of the most popular trekking in Nepal. It lies in the Annapurna Conservation Area Project that offers you an amazing journey through the picturesque hillside to the natural amphitheater at 4130 meters altitude. Annapurna base camp is surrounded by the giant walls of the Annapurna Himalayas from three sides for which it is located in the shape of an open bowl.

The trek to Annapurna base camp heads from Nayapaul, which is the main gateway of most of the treks in the Annapurna region. Despite of different alternative trekking trail in the beginning, our recommended route is via Poon hill. The trail leads you through the terraced hillside and eventually through the rhododendron forest that offers a remarkable journey to Ghorepani. Hike to Poon Hill view point early in the morning offers the breathtaking sunrise view over the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri white peaks that turn out to be golden once the sunrays kiss their summits. The ethnic culture of Magar and Gurung people and their hospitality makes your trek a beautiful experience. The straightforward trail to ABC offers you a wonderful experience of exploring the alpine vistas in a place, where you will be surrounded by the massive peaks of Annapurna from three sides. When it becomes snowy, the landscape becomes mind blowing. The descending route leads you through Jhinu and walk to Nayapul.
