Annapurna base camp trekking is one of the famous trekking routes in Nepal. You will see the great Annapurna and Hiunchuli, Fang, Ganagapurna and Machhapuchhare arranged almost precisely in a circle about 10 miles in diameter with a deep glacier-covered amphitheater like setting at the center.
The trek commences from Nayapul, an hour’s drive from Pokhara. Later, the trail moves toward Ghorepani, a trading village situated at an elevation of 2750 m. for a tremendous vantage point (Poon hill - 3194 m.) to view both the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Himal. The views at sunrise from Poon hill are simply stunning. From Ghorepani, the trail leads East to the hamlet of Tadapani and on towards Chhomrong, from where you commence our journey into the Annapurna Sanctuary and onwards to Annapurna Base Camp. The journey to base camp follows the valley in between the huge ramparts of Himchuli & Machhapuchhre, eventually emerging into an awesome Amphitheater, where a labyrinth of mountains and Annapurna-I tower almost vertically above you.
