Annapurna base camp trek is a very well-known trek due to its spectacular views, fascinating local cultures, and logistical ease. The Annapurna Himalayas is a vast collection of several peaks above 7,000m, which give life to the spectacular Annapurna Sanctuary.
The principal peaks of the western portion of the great Annapurna Himalayas, including Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Fang, Annapurna, Ganagapurna, Annapurna 3 and Machhapuchhare, are arranged almost precisely in a circle with a deep glacier-covered amphitheater at the center. During the winter, the number of trekkers reduces due to the walking being both difficult and hazardous because of the heavy snowfall. Entering a narrow valley, we pass directly below Machhapuchhare before reaching the Sanctuary, which is considered a home for the Gods.
The combination of pretty villages and farmland at Ghandrung, set against the panorama of high peaks beyond makes this one of the most picturesque treks in Nepal. This is a Moderate trek offering close-up mountain views and diverse trekking terrain. High Himalayan Trekking and Expedition will design an itinerary and program for Annapurna Base Camp trekking according to an individual clients’ interest throughout the year.
