Annapurna Base Camp Trek 18 Days

Annapurna base camp trek is one of the most famous treks in Nepal. The Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) trekking route is also known as the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. The ABC is surrounded by a ring of mountains known as the Annapurna Range (most peaks are 7000m+). The entrance of the Annapurna Sanctuary is through a gorge made by the Modi Khola river, between Hiunchuli and Machapuchare. We begin the ABC Trek from Pokhara to Nayapul by car. We hike to the Birethanti village (1000m) alongside the Modi. From ‘Poon Hill’ we see the beautiful ‘fishtail’ of Gangapurna (7454m), Annapurna 1 (8091m), and Annapurna South (7273m). Trekking through oak forest we pass many valleys running into the Modi Khola, and climb a stone ’staircase’ to the Gurung village of Chomrong (2060m) (the Gurung are an ethnic group that migrated from Mongolia around 600 AD). We trek past Hinku cave and reach the ‘gate’ into the Sanctuary; a pass between the spectacular peaks of Hiunchuli and Machapuchare.
