Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) Trek is essentially a meandering walk to the base camp of the 10th highest mountain in the world. After a 9 day trek through the Annapurna conservation area, villages, settlements, streams, forests, you will reach the very heart of Annapurna Mountains, popularly known as the "Annapurna Sanctuary".

From this natural amphitheater to the base camp of Annapurna I (4,130 m/13,550 ft), you will see eleven snow-capped mountains such as Mt. Annapurna (8,091m/26,545ft), Mt. Machhapuchre (6,993m/22,943ft), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m/26,795ft), Mt. Himchuli, ringed up within the diameter of 10 miles. Where in the world can you find the mountain sights superior to this? Only after you venture on this trek will you realize why the mountain man, Sir Edmund Hillary, called this trek "one of the best mountain sights in the world."

Annapurna Base camp adventure begins as we drive from the scenic lake city of Pokhara to Nayapul. Onwards, we take a scheduled course to ABC that lets us pass through the delightful Gurung towns of Tikhedhunga, Ghorepani, Poonhill viewpoint, Tadapani, Chommrong, Bamboo, and Deurali.

Furthermore, we walk over to another esteemed mountain's base camp- Machhapuchre Base Camp- from where we head towards Annapurna Base Camp. We have to trek down two days on the same trail until Chhomrong, and at Chhomrong, we fork our trail towards Jhinu Danda to give a twist for the last day's walk. As we reach the natural city of Pokhara, we will celebrate our successful trek with a chilled beer along the bank of the famous Phewa Lake.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek - Alternative Routes
For those considering a different alternative path, there are a couple of different courses at lower elevations from Pokhara to interface at Chommrong. Depending upon your available time and interest, you can pick a trek from either Dhampus to Ghandruk or Nayapul to Tikhedunga. However, the trail ahead from Chommrong onward will be the same. Keeping Poonhill in mind which is a great vantage point for observing the Annapurna’s, we have included it in our standard agenda by means of Nayapul to Tikhedhunga.
