Annapurna Sanctuary / Annapurna Base Camp Trek

 

Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Trek Grade: C (Challenging)
Trek Duration: 13 Days
Hotel in KTM/Pokhara: 4 Nights
Season: September to December and April to May

The most exciting trekking area in Nepal is situated north of Pokhara, offering some of the most dramatic close-up views of some of the tallest mountain peaks in the world. The abrupt variations in altitude found here provide an astonishing experience. The summit of Machha Puchre (6,997m) is less than 30 kilometers from the airstrip (850m) of Pokhara with no intervening ranges to spoil the views. In fact, the views in this area as a whole are fabulous.

The incredible latitudinal range, unusual geographical and climatic mix makes the trekking in this area a real naturalist’s dream. In less than a week we move from the sub-tropical areas around Pokhara to high Tundra and the glaciers of the sanctuary.

The lower area of the range is inhabited by Gurungs and Magars, the sturdy Gurkhas by legend. Here, the home turf of these friendly smiling people that became the famous Gorkha regiments of the British and Indian armies can be experienced. Pokhara is the main trade center for the whole of this region where Gurungs and Newars live. The return trail follows one of the historical and most important trading routes between India and Tibet. This journey also forms a major pilgrimage route between India and Tibet.
