Trip Overview


Annapurna Base Camp Trek (also called Annapurna Sanctuary trek) is still one of the most popular treks  in Nepal. For a short trek with few altitude problems, the Annapurna Base Camp Trekking provides you with unparalleled access to spectacular horizons of Snowy peaks. A trek to Annapurna Base Camp combines some of the most fantastic mountain scenery with a fascinating insight into the life of middle hill Nepalese. The trail takes us through an ever- changing landscape of rice fields, misty forests and lowland local villages to the glacier. It offers a fine opportunity to surround oneself with Himalayan Peaks specially witnessing the glacier basin of Annapurna Sanctuary formed by Annapurna, Machhapurchre (Fishtail, Himchuli, and Manaslu). This used to be a complicated trek due to problems with food and lodge. Now there are many new facilities between Ghandruk and Base Camp along this trail only used by trekkers. Annapurna Base Camp can be approached by at least three different routes. Here I have described one of three options.
