Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

Annapurna Base Camp or Annapurna Sanctuary trekking is one of the most popular treks and offers opportunity to explore the core of Annapurna peaks that surround their base camp at the highest of 4130m. The trek begins either at Phedi or at Nayapul short cut reach by road from Pokhara and gradually towards higher elevation as it enters to the wilder area of Annapurna Sanctuary.  The trek passes several Gurung villages of the area namely Ghandruk, Landruk, Tolka, Chomrong and others. Gurungs have a distinctive culture mixed with Bon and Buddhism and are renowned for serving in the infantries of British Gurkha regiment in both world wars and the Gulf war in recent times. The trek is ideal for short time trekkers who wish to combine nature, culture and adventure in the same trip. The trip can be combined with Annapurna circuit or other treks in the area.
