Annapurna Base Camp Trek
Annapurna Base Camp Trek is one of the most thrilling trekking in the Annapurna region. It is known as the classic route which gives us an unbelievable view of mountains and the best trekking route of Nepal. Annapurna I, II, III, IV, Gangapurna, Machhapuchhre, Hiunchuli, etc are some of the eye-catching snow-capped mountains that are offered in our way. Most of our track goes through a forest of rhododendron and terraced lands with beautiful traditional Gurung community village. Add to this, you will cross many bridges over torrent flowing rivers.
Our trekking to Annapurna Base Camp starts from Kathmandu. Tikhedhunga, Ghorepani Poon hill, Tadapani, Chhomrung, Donovan, etc are some of the beautiful villages in our trekking route. In our way, we will be pleased with a spectacular view all around us. There are no hotel and lodges on all the places so we need to spend some nights in tented camp to the high land of Himalayas. Our trekking to Annapurna base camp will be surely enchanting as we move from low land to high land. After completing our destination we will again return back to Kathmandu to end our trek.
