Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal

Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal Overview

This is the classic trek to the Annapurna Base Camp the world’s tenth highest mountain and to viewpoint at Poon Hill.

We start by taking the spectacular flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara where you will get superb views of the Himalayan mountains. This is a classic trek passing through Gurung villages and rhododendron forests followed by an ascent of Poon Hill where there is a superb view of the Himalayan peaks of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna 1, Hiunchuli, Annapurna South and Machapuchare (known as Fishtail mountain). From here we follow the Modi Khola river through the gates of the Sanctuary into a hidden amphitheatre with a superb view of the Annapurna massif. This trek would be a good choice if you would like to get into the high Himalayan mountains without the longer acclimatisation period required for some of the other treks in Nepal such as Everest Base Camp. The highest altitude reached on this trek is 4,130m at Annapurna Base Camp
