Overview

The brilliant Annapurna base camp trek is popular to experience the difference during the foothill excursion in the Annapurna Himalayas. This is also renowned as the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, which is 4130 meters of its highest elevation. The moderate trek offers the magnificent Himalayas, evergreen forests, superb stone step trail and the picturesque ethnic valleys that are scattered.

Is it slog to plan the journey to Annapurna base camp? Of course not. Just you need to have a determination to walk through the villages and steady climb up to the bowl-shaped base camp.   Comfortable lodge-based accommodations are available. Kick off from Nayapul, the trek proceeds enjoying the echoing sound of the cascading waterfalls on Bhurungdi Khola. Passing Tikhedhunga and steep climb to Ulleri, journey through the rhododendron forest leads you to Ghorepani. Poon Hill is just a step up of Ghorepani, which is the best viewpoint of enchanting mountains like Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Fishtail, Himchuli, and others. From Tadapani, the trail descends to Chhomrung and the sweat dripping climb begins. Low land villages are bustling but the high land is less populated on the Annapurna base camp trekking trail. The sublime experience surpasses your imagination once you witness the magnificent Annapurna range encircling the base camp at 4130 meters. Enjoy the meditation at this point, which gives you a lifetime experience during the Annapurna base camp trekking. While descending, a natural hot spring bath at Jhinu sets your muscles and soothes the tiredness.
