Highlights

    • Excellent viewpoints: Poon Hill and Annapurna base camp
    • Evergreen forests and cascading waterfalls
    • Wide stone step trail
    • Ethnic hospitality
    • Meditation in Annapurna base camp

The Annapurna base camp trek also known as the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek,  is 4130 meters at its highest elevation. The  trek offers the magnificent Himalayas, evergreen forests, superb stone step trail and the picturesque ethnic valleys that are scattered. 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 is a lifetime worth of experience during the Annapurna base camp trekking. While descending, a natural hot spring bath at Jhinu sets your muscles and soothes the tiredness.

Vertex Holiday welcomes you to experience the excellent Annapurna base camp trek with our professional guide and customized itinerary. Please, do not hesitate to put any queries about Annapurna treks and we offer you expert advice.
