Annapurna base camp trek ( ABC) also known as "Annapurna Sanctuary" Trekking is a hidden alpine amphitheater, overshadowed by surroundings ice bound giants of 21,000 ft. Our Annapurna Base Camp trek leads to a natural amphitheater that is used as the base camp from which climbers start on their way to conquer the Annapurna Mountain top 8091 meters above sea level, and the Annapurna base camp's altitude is 4130 meters. The trek starts from lake city of Pokhara Nepal and wings through lush, subtropical forests and traditional farming villages. Every ridge yields a Himalayan panorama with Annapurna south, Fishtail and Himchuli soaring above. A trek of the narrow Modikhola valley will bring you to the base of Machapuchare (Fishtail) and into the Annapurna sanctuary; here you will spend 2 unforgettable days gazing in away at the snow covered peaks above and the beauty of the landscape around. Once you stand in the Annapurna sanctuary, the 360-degree views are breathtaking. Although clouds roll in early, the curtain often lifts at sunset to rival radiant, glowing peaks.
The Annapurna "Sanctuary" is a high glacial basin surrounded by eleven of Nepal's major peaks and is accessed by a deep gorge that carves through this mountain fortress. It is referred to as the Annapurna "Sanctuary" because of the divine presence of the Hindu goddesses, Annapurna and Gangapurna. Following a traditional route of Tibetan traders, we trek 5 to 7 hours daily passing terraced fields and bamboo forests, remote villages and into the ice-bound heart of the vast mountainous amphitheater of the Annapurna base camp. Our friendly Nepalese staff cares for all your needs as you immerse yourself in a land of rich in history, culture, staggering beauty and adventure!
