Annapurna Base Camp Trek Route

The Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the most popular trekking routes in Nepal due to its stunning beauty and accessibility to people with moderate fitness levels.

With road systems eating into the traditional trekking trails we have designed this trips so that you can take advantage of driving to the deepest accessible point in the Annapurna ranges before you start your hike whilst still getting to experience all the majesty that of the traditional eleven day version. You will enjoy a diverse trek where you'll pass through countryside villages of ethnic Nepalese people, lush rhododendron forests and striking mountain ranges, culminating with the rewarding view of the amazing Annapurna sanctuary surrounded on all sides by 7000 metre peaks. This trek is not particularly strenuous and provides an amazing experience of the beauty of the mountains of the Himalaya.


Our adventure starts at the historic Gurung village of Ghundruk, where we visit the Ghudruk Museum before setting off along mountain trails that takes us through dense forests of rhododendrons and bamboo, over fast-flowing rivers on a suspension bridge to the traditional village of the indigenous Gurung community where old customs have been kept alive even at this age or modernizations. The warm hospitable people of the village will greet you warmly and happily interact with you during your overnight stay there. As we ascend higher the scenery changes. From the lush forest and grass pastures to the landscape, slowly turns to rocky passes and steep cliff faces, and stunning views of the snow-capped peak. the kind of serenity that will make you whisper to keep the peace. When we finally reach our destination at Annapurna base camp where everywhere you look, you'll see enormous mountains from Hiunchuli, past Annapurna South to Annapurna I (8,097m/26,566ft) and Khangsar Kang, Gangapurna, Annapurna III, and Machhapuchhare. you'll feel like you're standing at the heart of the mountains. After spending a night here we follow the trail to the hot springs at Jhinu Dhanda back to the road head and drive back to Pokhara.


Our seven day trek itinerary is designed specifically for those with short vacation time where within just a week you can experience all the astonishing beauty of nature.
