Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

Tour listed by Himalayan Sanctuary Adventure
About this tour

Annapurna Base Camp Trek combines some of the most spectacular mountain sceneries, providing a fascinating insight into the modern hill life of Nepal. This is a unique trek among the local trails, through forests, villages and terraced farmlands, unparalleled mountain scenery, surrounded by enormous mountains giving you an inside experience into the Nepalese life and culture.

The trek to Annapurna Base Camp follows the Modi River and passes through dense stands of rhododendron and bamboo. By the time you reach the large rock overhanging, known as Hinku Cave, you will notice that the vegetation has thinned and the gorge has narrowed to be only a few hundred meters wide. Steep snow-clad ridges falling from Hiunchuli on the left and Machapuchare on the right form the entrance to the Sanctuary. As we pass through the “gate” and enter into the Sanctuary, you find yourself in a huge amphitheater enclosed by a solid wall of snow-capped peaks.
