Description

Reaching the the foot of the world’s tenth highest mountain makes for quite the adventure. Our luxury Annapurna base camp trek combines all the sensations of heading out on a wilderness trek with as many comforts as possible along the way!

The adventure to Annapurna’s base camp begins after you fly into Kathmandu. The following day, we will head to Pokhara either by flying or driving. Flying is faster, but the drive is incredibly beautiful and should not be missed.

From Pokhara, we will transfer to the foot of the conservation area and begin the the trek.

Over the course of our time trekking, we will head from village to village, enjoying sublime mountain views along the way and getting the chance to experience some of central Nepal’s diverse landscapes, including river gorges and jungles.

As we get farther into the conservation area, we’ll begin to see fewer and fewer signs of human civilization. At this point in the trek, expect to see more incredible natural beauty as well as some of the area’s native wildlife, including wild pigs, deer, snow leopards and more.

Finally, we will reach Annapurna base camp and enjoy some simply spectacular views of the massif as well as the surrounding peaks. The following day, we’ll be sure to get up early in order to enjoy a fantastic sunrise before beginning our descent.

On the way back, we’ll visit the village of Ghandruk, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site, before continuing on to Pokhara and returning to Kathmandu.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this unforgettable 14-day luxury Annapurna base camp trek in the stunning Nepalese Himalayas!
