Overview

Annapurna Base Camp Trek also calls sanctuary of annapurna is a moderate and failly challanging trek that starts at Phedi near Pokhara, a short drive of about 45 minutes from Pokhara, takes you to the beginning point [Base Camp, 4130m] of Mt. Annapurna , one of the most magnificent peaks in the world. The trail takes you through fascinating traditional villages of Nepal 's ethnic communities of the Gurung, Magar, and Thakali who will greet you very warmly.

The trek continues through dense rhododendron forest with towering snowy peaks in the background. The return walk is even more interesting as the trek winds around different ridges towards Ghorepani, where you witness breathtaking views of an early morning sunrise glistening gaps over the snow capped peaks of the Annapurna & Dhaulagiri Mountains . The sceneries seen throughout this trek grace the landscape of the real Himalayan Nirvana where imagination defines the beauty of nature as an experience that can never be forgotten.

The Annapurna Base Camp trek will be even more interesting in spring as the whole forest along the trail turns red, pink and white with rhododendron flowers. This wonder trip can be done anytime of the year except during the monsoons.
