Overview

The 4130m Annapurna Base Camp is a campsite which lies surrounded by Machhapuchhre, Annapurna I and Hiunchuli and the journey to the camp itself involves excitement and adventure for both the beginners and experts.

The trekking path starts from lowland villages through the ethnic villages of Ghandruk and Chhumrung and passes through farmland terraces, rhododendron forest and breathtaking views of the mountains. Throughout the journey you will get to witness the ethnic lifestyle and cultural riches and serene natural beauties of the Gurung village. The path will lead you towards the Annapurna Sanctuary where you will see unimaginable serene surroundings.

This trekking expedition is ideal for adventurers with restricted time duration and is one of the easiest treks for children. The trekking journey can be done in all seasons where the rhododendron forest blooms during spring but the Base Camp during winter depending upon the level of snow. September, October, November, December, March, April, May and February are considered to be the most favorable seasons for the trek. There is a myth about Lord Krishna, the Supreme Being considered by the Hindus, to visit the place which is why eating meat is not allowed in the base camp. The base camp doesn’t have a reliable access to the electricity so it’s recommended to bring along a power bank or a portable solar power inverter if need be. Our path will be the high lands so altitude sickness might be a problem of the trek and the classic problem of the trek is that the trekking routes tend to be slippery but it’s not a difficult path. In spite of the height of the surrounding peaks and ice walls, the valley provides comfortable camping spots.
