Annapurna base camp trekking/trek, one of the most trekked routes of the Annapurna region, is often considered as the trekker’s paradise as it offers magnificent mountain experience with rather easy accessibility. Global Holidays Adventure offers a 12 days package for a relaxed and easy trekking experience to the foot of Annapurna (8091m), Fishtail (6890 m) and Poonhill as the additional destination.”

The journey to Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) entails the spectacular view of Annapurna range including Dhaulagiri (8196m), Nilgiri, Tilicho, Manaslu and many other snowcapped giants. Taking our strides along the paddy fields, astonishing rivers-waterfalls and rhododendron blossomed forest, the view of sacred Machhapuchre (6890m) is overwhelming throughout the journey.

Another feature of the trek is the variety of cultural experiences as the region is inhabited by the diverse ethnic communities. The majority of Hindus in the lower hills and plains to the Buddhists in the high mountains, every community has their distinct types of lifestyles, attire and culture.

The Annapurna Base Camp trekking starts from Nayapul, 1 hr drive from the beautiful city of Pokhara. We head towards Poonhill popularly known as the photographer’s point. The place offers the panoramic view of Annapurna massif along with the fabulous sunrise and sunset view. Walking via Chhumrung, we first reach the Machhapuchre Base Camp (MBC). After spending a chilling night at MBC, and a walk from there takes us to the mostly snow covered ABC. On our return we follow the route via Landruk-JhiniDanda. Jhini Danda is famous for natural Hot spring water. A dip in the hot water is a good way to overcome the trekking exhaustion. Moreover, it is believed that the water has healing capacity. Finally we return to Pokhara, and from there to Kathmandu. The journey of Annapurna Base Camp Trekking hence ends.

ABC Trekking can be done along the helicopter tour for your luxury experience. After EBC Trekking ), Annapurna Base Camp Trek can be the second thrilling adventure for the thrill seekers. There are other highest treks that can be done along with ABC and EBC such as Manaslu Trek, Langtang Trek, Mustang Trek and many more.
