An oval shaped glacial basin at an altitude of 4134m located directly 40Km North of  Pokhara, to the edge of the Annapurna Glacier, at the foot of the Annapurna Masiff surrounded on all sides by a ring of more than 7000m tall peaks.

Also, the Annapurna Base Camp or the Annapurna Sanctuary serves as a base to climbers and mountaineers, and is a major route to most of  the peaks in the Annapurna Range. Especially, for climbers to the Annapurna South Face.

Trail to Annapurna Sanctuary

Trail on the Annapurna Base Camp Trek that finally leads into the Annapurna Sanctuary is just one entrance. A narrow valley between the two Himalayan mountains, Hiunchuli and Machapucharae that runs besides the Modi Khola formed from the waters of the Annapurna and Machapucharae Glaciers.

Trail leading into the Annapurna Sanctuary

Surrounded on all sides by the Annapurna Range , there is only one trekking trail leading into the Annapurna Sanctuary. This narrow path that runs along the Modi Khola and which finally ends at the Annapurna Sanctuary is called the Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

Unique feature of the Annapurna Sanctuary

Annapurna Base Camp Trek goes through a combination of high mountains and deep valleys giving way to a unique eco-system to the Annapurna Sanctuary. Surrounded on all sides by high mountains of the Annapurna Range, the Southern face of the Annapurna Sanctuary receives more rainfall. 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. Surrounded on all sides by high mountains, the Annapurna Sanctuary receives only seven hours of sunlight in a day.

Who Can do this Trek

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is the easiest and the shortest of all the Base Camp Treks in Nepal Himalayas. A scenic trek that starts from the foothills of the Annapurna Mountains at Pokhara, and gently climbs up to 4134m at the Annapurna Sanctuary. Therefore, anyone with medium level of fitness with the practise of walking long hours in the mountains can easily accomplish the Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

Type of Trek

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is Tea House or a lodge based trek. A Trekking trail in the Annapurna Region that passes through small Himalayan hamlets of Ghandruk, Landruk, Choomrong and Dovan pockmarked across the Annapurna Mountains.
