Annapurna Base Camp Trekking - 15 Days

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking means the exploration to one of the most beautiful holiday destinations in the world, and specifically one of the top 10 trekking trails intrepid have been to. From the tranquil yet touristic lakes in Pokhara to the hamlets strewn by prayer flags in the higher altitudes, and from the lush valleys around the fast flowing rivers to the paths overlooked by the bossy Himalayas, explorers have a lot to enjoy. You get to experience the unique culture of Gurung and other indigenous communities, diverse landscapes and vegetation, rare species of flora and fauna in the sanctuary of Annapurna conservation area and several historical and cultural heritages of Kathmandu valley and outside it.

The entertaining and exciting Annapurna Base Camp Trekking starts from the beautiful Pokhara city, the City of Lakes and unofficial tourist capital of Nepal. We may either have the beautiful Dhampus or the small hamlet of Nayapul as the starting point of the trek. Wandering through the lively settlements along the Bhurungdi River, the trekking trail traverses through lush and colorful rhododendron and pine forests, Magar community dominated Ulleri village, ancient trade stoppage of Ghorepani and the breathtaking Poonhill, stone steps carved on the trail in several sections of the trail to the base camp of Fishtail Mountain and the domineering Annapurna Mountain. After creating memories with the close up view of the glittering mountains, rolling hills and the truly outstanding sunrise and sunset, we shall retrace our steps through the rough and rocky terrain to relax at the natural hot springs in Jhinu Danda. The trekking then traverses through the Valley of Modi River and head on to the scenic Pokhara city before going back to the medieval capital city of Kathmandu. In this adventure of around couple of weeks, you shall enjoy the diversity, scenery and cultural richness. In Annapurna Base Camp Trek, marvel at the sight of golden sunlight spreading majestically over the distant peaks and trek from the mossy jungles at lower altitude to the snow-clad expanses in the higher elevation.
