Annapurna Base Camp Trek


The Annapurna Range is located 250km West of Kathmandu. The impressing views of iconic peaks such as Mount Fishtail (Mt. Machhapuchhre) and Annapurna I-VI and easy access to trekking routes, make this area the most popular for trekkers in Nepal. The trek starts from Pokhara, Nepal’s second largest city which is also called as a queen city of Nepal because of the natural beauty of the region.

One of the most breathtaking treks on earth, the Annapurna Base Camp Trek passes through communities rich in cultural diversity, diverse climates, and distinct landscapes. You will stop at the well-known Poon Hill viewpoint and unwind at Jhinu Danda's natural hot springs along the way.

The Annapurna Conservation Area offers lush, jungly trails combined with thrilling 360-view ridge trails. There is a rich birdlife here, and in springtime the rhododendron forest blooms, offering amazing nature encounters.

Whether you are looking for a trek with once-in-a- lifetime adventure or spend family holidays in the nature, we make sure that you experience the best that Annapurnas has to offer.
