Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Duration : 10 days Accommodation : Standard | deluxe hotel
Season : Sept – June Transport : Flight | Car | Tourist bus

 

Introduction to the trip

A stroll through the different countryside and culture of Annapurna base camp is a fantastic one and offers beautiful views of the mountain, terraced farms, picturesque Gurung towns as well as flora and fauna. The 10th highest mountain in the globe is Mt. Annapurna (80,91 m) from Nepal and one of the most famous walks in the world is its base camp at 41,30m/13,549 ft. In addition, we achieve our target via Mt. Machapuchhre (Fishtail), the distinctive nature of which is celebrated in Nepal. In addition, it's a common option from varied travel lovers, ranging from solo women to hikers traveling in group to Nepal, with the rigorous trails of the Annapurna Base Camp Trekking package.

In comparison with most trips in this area going up to the base camp, our base camp Trek in Annapurna has a brief 11-day route. The path is intended especially for globetrotters who desire to walk to the amazing alpine base camp but who are limited in time. For those tourists who want to get to the foundation station in Annapurna in a comfortable way, attempt a separate path such as the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek – 14 days, which could be a better option.
