Description

The Annapurna Base Camp Trek — also known as ABC Trek — is an 11-day hike in the beautiful Annapurna range. We’ll pass by traditional Nepali villages while we walk surrounded by lush vegetation and the stunning snowy peaks of the Himalayas.

The trek will start from Pokhara. During the next 10 days, our trek will take us through beautiful valleys. We’ll walk by glacier-fed rivers and pass by several of the Himalayas’ most famous peaks, including Annapurna (8091m), Annapurna South (7219m), Gangapurna (7455m) and Annapurna III. We’ll also pass by the scenic viewpoint of Ghorepani Poon Hill. 

The trek combines imposing Himalayan vistas with the possibility of catching a glimpse of everyday life in this remote corner of the world. We’ll pass by small villages and farms where you’ll enjoy the hospitality of the local people. 

On our way down from the Annapurna Base Camp, we’ll pass by the terraced Modi Khola and, from there, to Nayapul, from where we can catch a bus back to Pokhara.

You need a good fitness level to be able to enjoy this hike. Take into account that we will spend a good portion of the trek above 3000 meters, so that adds a significant challenge in terms of acclimatization.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to join me on the famous ABC trek! Request to book this trip and we’ll start planning your trip to Nepal. I guarantee an unforgettable experience surrounded by some of the world’s most famous mountains.
