Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

The Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the most popular treks in the Annapurna region. There are few treks that combine so many different landscapes and bring you so close to the base of 7,000 and 8,000 meter peaks in a such a short period of time as the Annapurna Base Camp Trek.  The trail goes alongside terraced rice paddies,  rhododendron forests and high altitude landscapes with the Annapurna Range in view most of the times. The setting of Annapurna Base Camp at 4137 m is unique and incredibly spectacular, set amidst the majestic peaks of Annapurna I (8091 m), Annapurna South (7219 m), Machapuchhre (6997 m) and Hiunchuli (6441 m). The Annapurna Base Camp Trek takes 8 to 12 days, depending on your itinerary and length of walking days. The itineraries presented here takes 8-10 days but 10 days normal itinerary, starting from Pokhara –  Nayapul (a 1 1/2 hour drive from Pokhara) and going north up to Ghorepani and the famous viewpoint of Poon Hill (3210m.). From Gorepani you go eastward to Chomrong and then north again entering the Modi Kola Valley which leads up to the Base Camp. Many people trek the circuit Nayapul-Ghorepani-Ghandruk-Nayapul, which is very rewarding in itself. This trek can easily be done with children as well. You can return via Jhinu Danda and give your tired muscles a well deserved rest in the delightful hot springs. Upon your return it is worthwhile visiting one of the Gurung villages of Ghandruk or Landruk. The lodges in the Annapurna Trekking Region are well equipped with extensive menus ranging from the typical Nepali dal bath (rice with lentils) to pizza and chaumein. Hot showers are readily available as well.  The Annapurna trekking region is easily accessible with different trail-heads starting just an hour or two away from Pokhara. It is possible to do this trek in all seasons, however, in the winter the Base Camp can sometimes be closed due to the high snow level. In spring time the huge rhododendron forests are in full bloom which gives the trek an extra appeal.
