sunny 5 °C

Annapurna base Camp Trekking can be a completely different experience if the landscape provides you with the thrill you desire. Annapurna Base Camp treks provides just that. The Annapurna Sanctuary of the Himalayas is encircled by many peaks, namely the Machhapuchhre or Fishtal (6997m), the unclimbed Fang (7647m), Gangapurna (7454m), Annapurna 1 (8091m), and Annapurna South (7273m). The majestic view of the mountains combined with the thrill of the trekking provides the most adventurous and the most rewarding trek of a lifetime.

Annapurna Base Camp trek can be approached only through the Modi Khola Valley which is a walk through the forests of oak, bamboos and spectacularly colored rhododendron. The trek takes you through the spectacular barrier of the snowy sanctuary which prizes you with dazzling view of the mountains and settlements sparsely distributed along the way. We walk through Machhapuchhre Base Camp (3729m) and also the Annapurna South Base Camp.

This starts with a scenic drive from Kathmandu to the wonderful city of Pokhara, the major tourist attraction of Nepal that harbors the 8000ers of Nepal. After landing, a short drive from Pokhara to nayapul is followed by a light walk to the village along the banks of the Modi River and Birethanti. The trek takes you through dense forests that provide habitat to many rare species of birds and animals. Even more, the forest comprises of many medicinal herbs and can prove to be a paradise for an explorer. The trek can be epitomized in the following routes – banks of Modi Khola, Gurung village of Chomrong, cave of Hinku and finally to the passage that takes you into the sanctuary that starts the spectacular views of the Machhapuchhre and the Hiunchuli.
