Annapurna Base Camp trek - 18 days
Adventure Tours, Guided Tours, Tour Operators
The Annapurna Sanctuary trek also known as the Annapurna Base Camp trek is famous for trekkers. The principal peaks of the western portion of the great Annapurna Himal, including Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Fang, Annapurna, Ganagapurna, Annapurna 3 and Machhapuchhare, are arranged almost precisely in a circle about 10 miles in diameter with a deep glacier-covered amphitheatre at the centre. From this glacier basin, known as the Annapurna Sanctuary, the Modi Khola knifes its way south in a narrow gorge fully 3660m deep. Further south, the gorge opens up into a wide and fertile valley, the domain of the Gurungs. The middle and upper portions of Modi Khola offer some of the best short trekking routes in Nepal, and the valley is located so that these treks can be easily combined with treks into the Kali Gandaki region to the west.
Highlights of the trek
The terraced farmland above Pokhara. Visit the inner sanctuary of Annapurna panoramic views of 10 peaks over 6000m. Views of Dhaulagiri and the Kali Gandaki from Poon Hill. Surrounded by a ring of impressive mountains, including Annapurna I (8091m). The combination of pretty villages and farmland at Ghaundrung, set against the panorama of high peaks beyond makes this one of the most picturesque of treks. Natural hot spring at Jhinudanda.
