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.
