Description

The Annapurna massif in Nepal is one of the greatest, most impressive massifs in the world. Standing tall and long in the Himalayas, it is almost impossible to not be in awe of it when you see it. However, on this 16 day hike, we will see to it that you do far more than just see the massif. Instead, you will get to immerse yourself within it. You will get to breathe in its air, while trekking through a large portion of it. And whenever you look up, you will get to admire its collection of incredible peaks, from Annapurna 1 (8,019m) to Gangapurna (7,454m).

The main destination of this 16 day trek will be the Annapurna base camp. However, like most great journeys, the destination is but a small part of the overall adventure. It is also important to mention that miraculously this adventure is actually not that strenuous, as the paths we will take are not too difficult. Thus making this trip not only an spectacular journey, but an accessible one as well.

The list of what you will get to see on this trip is as long as it is impressive. Filled with rivers, villages, stone staircases, valleys, lakes, gorges, peaks and so much more, there is little argument to be made as to why this trekking route is so popular. And just a few of the many highlights you will get to see up close or from afar include the Kaligandaki gorge, which is the deepest gorge in the world, the city of Kathmandu, which you will get a lot of time to explore, Poon hill, which offers great views of the highest peaks in the Himalayas, and so much more.

The trek to the Annapurna base camp is unforgettable. And in order to experience it for yourself, all you have to do is send us a request.

We also offer this fantastic 22 day hiking adventure through the Nepalese region of Mustang as well.
