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. Nepal Environmental Treks & Expedition have been organizing trekking since 1990 and is one of the leading outdoor trip organizers based in Nepal. We operate trekking adventures in all trekking trails and regions of Nepal, which have been officially opened for trekking. We have a group of highly experienced and professional trekking and expedition staffs who will assist and guide you every step of the way. Because of our goodwill and excellence in services, thousands of trekkers have trekked with us since our inception. Over the years Nepal Environmental Treks & Expedition has grown to become a successful brand value of trust and quality.

Excellent leadership

I was on a trek in the Annapurna Region with Ramesh Dahal as the guide. He was very much on top of things right throughout the trek and showed excellent leadership both with the trekkers and the wounderful + each of porters that we had. On the last day I became quite unusual with only about half a day to go. Ramesh through his brother Nava,was able to arrange for my helicopter evacuation to Kathmandu

It Was The Absolute Experience Of Lifetime

Dear Mr. Dahal, Thank you so much for organizing our trek to ABC in late September 1999. For me it was the absolute experience of lifetime and I am sure that I will be coming back again to your wonderful country this time with my family to spend more time. Whilst the trek itself was spectacular I believe that a major part of our experience was the great friendship and care shown to us by our guide Rajendra and the porters. These guys were simply the best and added to our trip with their sense of... See more fun and fantastic service. Having a guide, put a whole different perspective on our trip, as every where we went along the way we were made to feel part of a bigger group when we met other guides and porters. Having someone get you a hot cup of tea, checking you for leeches, checking your room for you to make sure that you haven't left anything behind are all little things that add to your trip/experience. Once again I would like to thank you for organizing our trek for us and would highly recommended Nepal Environmental Trekking to anyone looking to have an experience of a life time. You really mean what your business cards say " We serve you with love and care"    See less...

A Wonderful Trek To Annapurna Base Camp

We had a wonderful trek to Annapurna Base Camp. The sanctuary was marvelous with a clear blue sky after sunrise. Our trek was very well guided by Surya. He is a very experienced porter guide. Apart from that it was a pleasure to be in his company during the past twelve days. Also many thanks to Nava who managed to get us as his clients and who organized the trip very well. We will come back once again. We selected this agency from 3 options as it replied very punctual to our requests and adapted... See more the trip to avoid duplicate trails with previous trek. Anything you would like from a porter-guide and relatives of Yukta live everywhere. We were happy to give a small memory for snow walking.   See less...

Completed The Annapurna Base Camp Trek In 14 Days

Completed the Annapurna Base Camp trek in 14 days, fighting off leeches, mud pools, raging rivers, knee pain, altitude sickness, the lack of hot shower and bad weather. Pancha (guide), Ratna and Din (porters) were fantastic and caring throughout. We were rewarded by h alf-show glimpse of Annapurna I and other mountains as the skies cleared, the morning we were due to descend from ABC. Thank you for the care and memories and we might be back one day.

Trekking To ABC From 15th Of September

It was a privilege to have Ratna as a guide .He was always in a good mood, enthusiastic, outgoing, kind and helpful. It was being interesting to talk with him a lot the Nepali society, politics and everyday life. He has a large Experience and speaks excellent English. I thought the ABC trek as a present for myself for my 70th birthday and I can warmly recommend Ratna as a guide for older people as he is very patient and let me walk a pace suitable for me.
