Annapurna Base Camp Trek Via Ghorepani

Trip Overview

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is one of the very popular trekking trails in Annapurna region which is also known as Annapurna Sanctuary Trek.  It offers the finest view of Annapurna I (8091m.), Mt. Fang (7647m.), Gangapurna (7454m), Annapurna South (7273m.), Mt. Fishtail (6997m.), and Glacier Dome. The region is perfect for both the adventure seekers and nature explorers. Starting from Nayapul the trail takes you through fascinating traditional villages of Nepal’s ethnic communities Gurung, Magar, and Thakali who will greet you very warmly. The Annapurna Base Camp trek is even more interesting in spring as the whole forest along the trail turns red, pink and white with rhododendron flowers.Continuing through the dense rhododendron forest with towering snowy peaks in the background, you witness breathtaking views of an early morning sunrise where a red halo seeps through glistening gaps over the snow-capped peaks of the Annapurna & Dhaulagiri Mountains.  Annapurna base camp trekking is also suitable for the trekkers who are looking for something a little more challenging and energetic. It does not require you to have any previous trekking or mountaineering experience.
