About Trip:

This trek is famous throughout the world for its natural beauty. The journey takes you to the heart of the Himalaya where you will be surrounded by unforgettable views of the peaks! From Annapurna Base Camp, we have an exhilarating perspective of the enormous south face of Annapurna I. It is the first peak above 8000 m to have been climbed, achieved in 1950 by a French team. The feeling of being enclosed by the beauty of the Himalayas will be cherished for a long time to come.

The trek starts in the fertile farmlands lush with greenery and terraced fields and climbs to base camp beneath the towering giants. The initial villages are bounded by picturesque paddies and along the way we pass through groves of rhododendron and bamboo to reach an alpine landscape. The mountain views begin from the first day’s scenic panorama and continue as we pass through a land of wide-ranging biodiversity.

After a tour of the highlights of Kathmandu, we visit the lakeside city of Pokhara and begin with a short, scenic drive to Phedi. From here the trekking begins as we hike up through lush forests to Dhampus, a beautiful village along a ridge top with a spectacular panorama of the Himalaya. We then travel through more forests and over a ridge into the Modi River Valley. We follow this valley through scenic landscape and traditional villages. Eventually we reach the gateway of the Annapurna Sanctuary at the foot of Machhapuchhre, Fishtail Peak. We are now surrounded by peaks as we make a pleasant climb to Annapurna Base Camp, the climax of the trek, located at 4,130 m (13, 506ft). The scenery of a full circle of peaks around us will last a lifetime!

There are many choices for more trekking in the Annapurna area, and if you would like to extend your travels, just let us know and we will arrange according to your preferred schedule!

We have fixed departures and custom treks that can be arranged any day to suit your needs and schedule. Himalaya Hikes looks forward to guiding you into the spectacular Annapurna Region and the most exhilarating scenery in Nepal!
