Annapurna Base Camp

Trip Overview

For trekkers, the Annapurna Sanctuary trip, commonly known as the Annapurna Base Camp trek, is well-known. Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Fang, Annapurna, Ganagapurna, Annapurna 3, and Machhapuchhare are positioned almost precisely in a circle about 10 miles in diameter with a deep glacier-covered amphitheater at the center of the western portion of the enormous Annapurna Himal.

The Modi Khola knifes its way south from this glacier basin, known as the Annapurna Sanctuary, in a 3660m deep valley. The gorge expands up farther south into a broad and rich valley, which is the Gurungs’ realm.

The valley’s middle and upper reaches offer some of Nepal’s best short trekking routes, and the valley’s location allows these treks to be coupled with climbs into the Kali Gandaki region to the west.

Note: The trip will only start when you will arrive in Kathmandu. However, we can also pick you up and drop you off at Tribhuvan International Airport, if you need. The given itinerary is just a standard itinerary and could be customized on request.
