TRIP INTRODUCTION

Annapurna Base Camp Trek, also known as Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, is one of the most popular trekking routes in Nepal. This trek provides you an opportunity to experience the unique natural beauty of the Annapurna Conservation Area.

The trekking region is mainly inhabited by the Gurung people. The Gurungs are renowned fighters in the battlefield but they are very warm and welcoming at their homes. We will enjoy their hospitality and unique culture.

We will walk past the thundering Modi river in the early part of the trek. There are many waterfalls, rivers and streams on our way. Most of the region is populated by thick rhododendron forests. The whole forest turns red during spring, when the rhododendrons are in full bloom.

The highlight of the ABC trek is the view of the mountains. You will get a wonderful view of the Machhapuchhre, Annapurna, Gangapurna,Dhaulagiri and Himchuli mountains. Poon Hill and Ghorepani are one of the best places in the Annapurna region for mountain view.

Poon Hill and Ghorepani trek is a popular short trek choice. We will then head for Annapurna Base Camp, where some of the tallest mountains in the world are within touching distance.

Trip Route : Kathmandu- Pokhara - Poonhill- Chhomrung- MBC- ABC - Pothana- Pokhara -Kathmandu 

Best Month: September to December and March to May.

I went to the ABC in October. It was amazing! I have never seen so many bright stars in the sky like in the morning before the sunrise at Poon hill. And when sun arised, Himalaya mountains were covered with gold (reflection from the morning sun) its absolutely fantastic show. I definetely reccommend to include Poon hill in your trek to ABC. I had great guide, Dipak Sapkota, who also kindly helped me to carry on my stuff. He took care of all organizational moments and was very friendly, so I felt more like I went for hiking with a friend rather than with a guide჻)
