Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Annapurna Base Camp trek is the world-class trekking trails in Nepal. It is a high glacial basin located in the north of Pokhara. The trek gives an extraordinary variety of ecosystems because of the unique combination of depths and height. It is surrounded by the snow giants, especially Annapurna Himalayan ranges and other peaks above the 7000-meter mark. So it receives only seven hours of sunlight a day in the summer season. A dense tropical forest of bamboo and Rhododendron covers the south-facing slopes and the north-facing slopes are covered by rain shadow.

The sanctuary is considered sacred by both Hindus and Buddhists, as it is believed to be the abode of their deities. Annapurna was not open to foreigners until 1956. From the sanctuary, visitors can catch spectacular views of Machhapuchhere (6993m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Lamjung Himal (6983m), Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna II (7555m), Annapurna South (7219m), and Himchuli (7246m).
