Annapurna Base Camp Trek is the most popular and one of the finest base camp treks in Nepal Himalayas. Lying in a glacial basin at an altitude of 4130m sorrounded on all sides by 8000m peaks, there is only one trekking trail between Hiunchuli & Machapuchare leading into the Annapurna Sanctuary. This narrow path that runs along the river and which meanders through small villages in the Annapurna region of Nepal and which finally leads to the Annapurna Sanctuary is called the Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking trail goes through a combination of high mountains and deep valleys giving way to unique eco-system to the Annapurna Sanctuary. The Southern face of the Annapurna Sanctuary receives more rainfall and as a result is covered by dense bamboo and rhododendron forest where as the north face which lies close to the border with Tibet receives meagre rainfall and is arid and barren.

Being sorrounded by tall mountains the Annapurna Sanctuary receives only 7hours of sunlight in a day.  Annapurna Base Camp trek can be undertaken anytime of the year, though March to May and October to December are  the best time to trek in this area.

The Gurung Tribes who inhabit the Annapurna Region consider the Annapurna Sanctuary very sacred. They consider Machapuchare as the abode of Lord Shiva, a hindu deity. Till recently women, Eggs and meat were not allowed into the sanctuary. It was only in the late 1950’s trekkers started trekking into this area.

Moderate to Strenuous Trekking the annapurna Base Camp Trek goes to a maximum altitude of 4130m. Participants carry only their day Pack with their personal items in them & walk at their own pace. Main baggage will be carried by porters. Accommodation and food will be provided in lodges run by local families. Lunch will be provided in Tea house along the Trek route.
