Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the classic trails in the famed Annapurna Region. Our 14 days Annapurna Base Camp trek offers you an easy walking journey into the Annapurna Sanctuary, a natural amphitheater of enclosed by world’s tallest Himalayas including Annapurna I (8,091 m) and Dhaulagiri I (8167m).

Along the trail, you will be rewarded with sumptuous mountain views, colorful forests of rhododendron, oaks and bamboo and rare sights of wildlife on play.  Our ultimate destination remains the majestic Annapurna Base Camp at the altitude of 4200m.
This isolated cirque of peaks can only be approached by one route, a deep gorge that carves into the fortress of mountains between Machhapuchhre and Hiunchuli. Many of the peaks are over 7000m, including the famous twin-peaked Machhapuchhre, as well as Annapurna I and III, Annapurna South, Gangapurna and Glacier Dome.

The ABC Trek can be organized at varying times of the year and over different duration. As such, this 14-day itinerary is the most appropriate one since it has been designed keeping in mind the issue of acclimatization and best attractions.

Amazing Annapurna Base Camp trekking

(5/5)

Our guide is very flexible, experience and adaptive to different situation.

  1. We cut short a day of our hiking day at very last minutes and our guide able to redesign d routes and logistics arrangements.
  2. 2 of our members unable to proceed to bawe camp due to AMS. Our guide rearrange an alternative treks for them at lower region and meet back at the end of hike.
  3. Sudden snowfall near base camp and our guide advise us to continue treks. Right decision since the snow stop about an hour later.

Overall great experience with our guides in managing our group. Looking forward for next trip with them again.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek

(5/5)

We have had the privilege to do a trek, booked through Nepal Environmental Trek. Nava arranged everything for us. Our Guide was Dinesh Dhakal and our carrier was Goba. These people are the best guid and Carrier ever. I have met a lot of different guids and carriers from different companies, but our guid and carrier from Nepal Environmental Treks, are by far the best. Dinesh, our guide, are currently busy with his master degree in Economics. He has provide us with a whole lot of informative information on the trek. He looked very well after us and Goba, our carrier was always ready with a joke.

I would like to recommend Nepal Environmental Trek and I would recommend Dinsh and Gobal.

The trek upto Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) was beautiful, albeit abit challenging. We thoroughly enjoyed the secenery & trek upto ABC but perhaps the itinerary could be lengthened slightly as it was tpp rushed at times.

However, it was really experience and thank you Nava, Rah for making if happen! Special thanks to the porters Gopal & Ram for their help in carrying the luggage & also entertaining us with their song & dance!!!!!!!!

To Nava, Raj and Donna, Thank you for a good time in Nepal. All your assistance, friendliness and admire is appreciated. We trekked from Nayapul, on to PoonHill then Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) and back. Since we had only 8 days to spend, it was a tiring hike. Nevertheless, it was a good trip with plenty of stunning views. The accommodation provided along the trek was good and we are very satisfied with the overall package.

Thanks also to our porters; Gopal and Ram. They both were friendly, helpful and courteous.

Many thanks again and we will be back for more activities of Nepal!
