The Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

Maximum Altitude: 4130 meters

Duration of Trek: 12 days mountain lodge

Grade: Moderate and Hard

Respected and worshipped, Annapurna is truly awe-inspiring. Starting from Nayapul, this trail leads up to the Annapurna Base Camp and Machapuchare Base Camp, deep in the heart of the Annapurnas. Annapurna Base Camp is a natural ringed by Annapurna South and Annapurna I, Varahashikhar, Gangapurna and the holy mountain Macchapucchre (Fish Tail). The first few days are spent traveling through quaint Gurung villages and lush forests before reaching more barren and rugged terrain.

The trail to Annapurna Base Camp threads up the valley into the sanctuary where it gradually gives way to a gray screen and scrub before reaching snow fields, there are no villages to speak of for five days. Annapurna Base Camp trek is a wonderful trek with some tremendous views, from base camp a labyrinth of mountains tower almost vertically above with Annapurna I in dominance. An hour or two is spent here taking in the high mountains before commencing the return journey. Five further days are taken returning to Pokhara. Annapurna Base Camp trek is a good introduction to higher altitude without being too strenuous.
