Overview

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is one of the best trekking in Annapurna region where you will discover the Mountain views, mixed culture and forestry walk. 


One of the most beautiful trekking in Annapurna Region. It is starting from Nayapul then through Poon hill Chhumrong, Annapurna Base Camp & Back Landruk, ended at Phedi. Mt. Annapurna is one of the most magnificent peaks in the world. Poon hill view point is a great destination of this trek. It provides us a magnificent panoramic view of snow mountain range. Pastures, cultivated fields, deep forests of oak, bamboo and rhododendron are another attraction of this trek. 


Traditional villages of Nepal’s ethnic communities of the Gurung, Magar and Bramarn people will give a great welcome you on their village. The trail finally stumbles across moraines then reach to Annapurna Sanctuary. From there you will see undeniably beauty and unimaginable views of Annapurna mountain range. 
The Annapurna Base Camp trek will be even more interesting in spring as the whole forest along the trail turns red, pink and white with rhododendron flowers.
