Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Annapurna base camp trek falls under one of the most popular treks in Nepal. Gateway to the pristine mountain ranges from the north-central part of Nepal, Annapurna base camp trek is shorter and easier compared to other high altitude treks. Annapurna flaunts the 55-kilometre long mountain ranges, protected by the largest conservation area in the country- Annapurna conservation area (7,629 sq. km.). Thus, the trek is also known as Annapurna Sanctuary Trek (ABC).

The trek itself is very diverse with varying landscapes of lush green meadows, dense forests to close up views of Annapurna mastiffs. Passing through Gurung villages, this trail is less strenuous and comparatively shorter. Anyone physically fit irrespective of the age can easily complete this trek within Annapurna region.

Altitude is often less of the problem while on this trek. Although the trail route elevates up to 4,130m, risks of altitude sickness are very low due to the length of the trek and adequate time for acclimatization.

The Annapurna base camp trek is the complete blend of the relatively easy trail with beautiful landscapes leading to spectacular scenery. Within the few days of the trek, you will be able to view the marvellous range of Himalayan vista, including Annapurna III (7,555 m), Machhapuchhre (6,993 m), Gangapurna (7,454 m), Annapurna South (7,219 m), Singu Chuli (6,501 m), Annapurna I (8,091 m), Hiunchuli (6,441 m), Baraha Shikhar (7,647 m), Nilgiri South (6,839 m), Tukuche (6,920 m), Dhaulagiri (8,167 m), Manaslu (8,163 m) and other surrounding mountain peaks.

Like any other trips in the Annapurna region, ABC trek also begins from Pokhara. Furthermore, it passes through cascading waterfalls, beautiful villages, terraced farmlands, lush rhododendron forests, and amazing mountain vistas. Finally, reaching the base of the mighty Annapurna.

The 15-days Annapurna Base Camp Trek itinerary is for trekkers seeking to trek to the base camp of Annapurna in a limited time frame. Experience traversing through Nepali traditional villages alongside Annapurna ranges with Annapurna base camp trek!
