"This is an adventure through diverse picturesque scenery, from paddy terraces to the high alpine terrain, with constant views of the world's highest mountain range including Annapurna, Manaslu, and Dhaulagiri. We hike through the serene verdant forest of rhododendrons, charming villages full of life and the ancient Trans-Himalayan Trade route". The Annapurna Base Camp also is known as ABC Trek is a showcase of cultural and physical diversities. High and beautiful mountain peaks such as Annapurna 1, Gangapurna and Machhapuchhre encircle the Annapurna Sanctuary. The lodge-based trek is through terraced hillsides, picturesque villages and dense rhododendron forests with the magnificent Himalaya on the backdrop. The trek is through forested hillsides to Ghorepani. Ascend next to Poon Hill for a magnificent panoramic sunrise view of the Annapurnas and Dhaulagiri. It passes below Mount Machhapuchhare before reaching the Annapurna Sanctuary. This trek offers opportunity to explore the magnificent place before returning to Pokhara via Landrung and Dhampus.
This truly inspiring adventure passes through a more diverse range of climate, vegetation, and cultures than any place in the entire Himalayan world, from the lush verdant green vegetation of rain and temperate forests to the terraced rice fields and to the alpine zone, making this trip more tantalizing with an introduction to Nepal's cultural and natural beauty.
The Journey to Annapurna begins from Pokhara, a scenic spot & famous for its lakes. The trail leads towards the dense forest of rhododendrons and magnolia passing through the rain forest and a gorge between massive green hillocks that give us great views of our surroundings.

The Annapurna Base Camp trek brings you into the heart of the Himalayas from the very start of the hike. With so many spectacular high peaks on the show, it is no surprise this week-long hike is high on many people’s itineraries. Whether traveling for a short time or traveling with older children, this trek is for everyone: the scenery is incredible, culture is engaging, accommodation comfortable and walking not too strenuous. From the Annapurna Base Camp, and the Machhapuchhre Base Camp the views are of the majestic Machhapuchhre (better known as Fish Tail), Mount Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, and Annapurna III, amongst others. At the Annapurna sanctuary, there is a 360-degree panorama and a near-vertical view of the south face of the Annapurna towering above.
The trail passes through interesting villages and terraced farmland, giving an insight into how the locals of this area live. It also winds through rhododendron forests, passes and over glacier rivers and waterfalls, and allows spectacular views of sheer cliffs with rivers running below. And of course, the Himalayas provide an awe-inspiring backdrop! With the highest altitude being 4,130m at Annapurna Base Camp, and a steady but gentle increase in altitude in the days proceeding, there is little likelihood of altitude-related problems. This is also an almost an all-year-round route which fits into most visitors’ Nepal schedule.
