Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Trek to the start of a legendary Himalayan climb - follow in the footsteps of heroes

Annapurna base camp Trek starts form the terraced foothills of Dhampus ridge which is very near to Pokhara. We follow our trail through the Rhododendron forests of the Hinko Cave passing via the Gurung villages of Chomrong and Landrung, ascending up through Modi Khola. The path along the Modi khola provides a spectacular view of Annapurna Base Camp (4,130m) and Machapuchare Base Camp (3,880m). From Annapurna Base Camp we retrace our steps as far as Chhomorong where we take a different route down to Ghandruk Gurung Village. This village provides stunning vistas of South Annapurna, Himchuli and Fishtail for a last minute’s to exploration of the Himalayan Beauties in this region. Finally we'll enjoy a trek down to Nayapul and catch our return bus to Pokhara. Arriving in Pokhara offers more enjoyment after the trek and you are free to visit Pokhara city, to take it all in and relax before the next day's drive back to Kathmandu.

Our local staff are paid a decent living wage, get provided with all the right gear and are always well looked after. We pride ourselves on this.

Annapurna Base Camp trek is short enough to manage with 2 weeks off work, so it's perfect for those looking for a short yet stunning trek in the Annapurna Region of Nepal. Fancy the Everest region? We also run a short Ama Dablam Base Camp trek.

Memorable Moments

Experience Altitude

5000m (16400 ft) is high enough to sky-dive. Oxygen and atmospheric pressure are lower, thinking and moving are both more challenging. How will you go?

Climb Poon Hill

Climb to the top of the famous Poon Hill and see the Annapurna Range unfolding in all its glory.
