Overview

Annapurna Base Camp Trek


Most wanted trekking route in the world is called Annapurna Base Camp Trek suit and fit for every trekker  is an amazing walk through diverse landscape and culture complete with rich mountain vistas, terraced field, quaint Gurung villages and a wide variety of flora and fauna. Mt. Annapurna (8,091M) of Nepal is the 10th highest mountain in the world and along with the journey to its base camp at 4,130m height, it is also one of the most popular walk on the planet.

When people hear the name, “Annapurna”, the first thing that comes to their mind is a massive peak standing above 8000 meters, and looming over hills. However, Annapurna defines an entire region worth of hills, mountains, rivers, valleys, people and their culture. It is a mountain range with civilization fostering under its gracious fertile resources. Annapurna Base Camp Trek provides a breath-taking panorama of the Annapurna Ranges, including mountains such as Annapurna I and Annapurna South. Annapurna can be translated from Sanskrit as, "The Goddess of Harvests”, which makes it quite obvious that the entire region is rich in nature, from farming buckwheat, potatoes to natural dense forests of pine, oak and rhododendron, the latter of which is beautiful when in full bloom.

Starting from the capital city, Kathmandu, you will move on towards the tourist hub Pokhara, where, from the banks of Phewa Lake, you can catch the first glimpse of Annapurna and Machapuchhre in all their glory. Moving closer towards the ranges, towards the local villages of Ghandruk and Chhomrong, you witness the exceptional culture and warm hospitality of the locals. Further, this journey takes you to the Machapuchhre Base Camp, also known as the Fishtail Mountain - one of the most beautiful mountains in the world.

Hiking Adventure has brought you this unique itinerary of Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Machhapuchhre Base Camp with intense planning and detailing. The routes have been carefully planned to cover maximum ground in a short period of time while ensuring you receive most efficient and enriching experience.

Customer's Review

Paul Whiting Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Paul W 1 Reviewed January 19, 2019 via mobile Amazing Annapurna Base Camp First time to Nepal. Fantastic trip starting from the airport meet and greet with Sajana to the snowy peaks of Annapurna at sunrise with our guide KB. Ram and Sajana answered all our questions before the trip, great organisation and attention to detail. If you are at home with an idea and motivation, Hiking Adventure Treks will get you there!

Andew Whiting Annapurna Base Camp Trek

My second time in Nepal and another great trip thanks to Ram and Sajana. All requests, questions and queries handled without fuss and very professionally. If you want a stress free trip to Nepal where you can relax and enjoy the amazing culture and scenery, this is the outfit for you. I recently went to Annapurna Base Camp with a small group which was an amazing experience. KB was our guide who helped make the trip so enjoyable. He was very caring and conscious of our safety when the weather turned a bit nasty and we felt very safe. Thanks once again and I will be back soon. I cannot recommend this company highly enough.

FAQ

This trek is suitable for average people who are moderately fit, thus no previous experience is required. Some physical fitness programs such as running, swimming, hiking is recommended before you embark on your journey. Whilst on the trek, it is common to experience some discomfort before being fully acclimatized.
To prepare for a strenuous trek like this you should begin training at least two to three months before your departure. As a guideline, an hour of aerobic exercise three to four times per week would be considered a minimum requirement. The best preparation is bushwalking involving relatively steep ascents and descents. If you can manage a couple of valley floor to ridgeline ascents per comfortable and able to enjoy the trek to the fullest.
