The Annapurna Base Camp Trek is among the most popular journeys in Nepal.  The Annapurna region is located in northwest Nepal and is home to several of the highest peaks in the world.  Embarking on this once-in-a-lifetime trek, you will pass through ethnic villages as well as dense rhododendron and bamboo forests, until you reach the breathtaking Annapurna Base Camp at 4130 meters.  At the end of the trek, you will find yourself encompassed by pristine mountains, which form a natural amphitheatre around you.  After visiting Annapurna Base camp then by Helicopter to Pokhara.  

The Annapurna Base Camp Trek itself is initiated from Nayapul via Ghorepani.  Travelling through Ghorepani, your body will be able to get adapted and acclimatize with the high altitude.  One stopping point is at Poonhill, a famous vista, which offers a panoramic view of the majestic peaks of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri regions. For the first several days, the trail guides you through terraced hillsides and lively forests. Then, dense sub-tropical forests dominate the landscape.  Leading up to Annapurna Base Camp, you are surrounded by alpine meadows and rocks.  Finally, you will ascend to the base camp, a glacial basin where you find yourself in an incredible mountain walled fortress.  From here, you can see Machapuchare (6997m), Annapurna I (7,219m), Annapurna South (7,219m), Hiunchuli (6,441m), Annapurna III (7,555m), Tent Peak (5,663m), Gandharba Chuli (6,250m), Gangapurna (7,454m), and countless other mesmorizing peaks. From this point, we will trek back down to Jhinu Hot Spring, a natural skin cleanser and muscle reliever.  On the final day of the trek, we descend to Nayapul and drive further to Pokhara, where we explore the natural beauty that the city has to offer.  The views along throughout this trek are unforgettable. Equally important, throughout the trek you will be exposed to the rich culture and heritage of the Gurung and Magar villages.

The trail initially follows the Modi Khola river and continues along a rocky path to Hinko Cave. We ascend steadily with great views of steep-sided mountains and the majestic Glacier Dome mountain at the top of the valley. Finally, after several hours, we pass through the gates of the sanctuary where we are rewarded with a 360° view of the Annapurna giants.
