Trip Introduction

Annapurna Base Camp trek is an amazing walk through diverse landscape and interesting culture sites with rich mountain vistas, terraced fields, quaint Gurung villages and a wide variety of flora and fauna. Mt. Annapurna (8091m) of Nepal is the 10th highest mountain in the world and the journey to its base camp, which is at 4130m/13549ft height, is one of the most popular walks on earth. Moreover, we reach our destination via Mt. Machapuchhre (Fishtail) which is revered by the Nepalese for its unique beauty. Furthermore, thanks to the well groomed itinerary of the Annapurna Base Camp trekking package, it is a popular choice among diverse outdoor enthusiasts, from a solo female traveler to hikers travelling in groups.

Our Annapurna Base Camp Trek has a short, 11-day itinerary. The particular route is designed for globe trotters who wish to hike to the base camp of the spectacular mountain but have only limited time. Travellers who wish to reach the Annapurna base camp in a more relaxed manner can try a different route like the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek taking 14 days.
