Annapurna Base Camp Trek lies in Annapurna region trekking in the western part of Nepal. This trek is called Annapurna Sanctuary Trek too. Annapurna Base Camp trekking is best for natural view, Himalayan scenery and its beauty. Gurung culture and traditions are it’s another special feature.

Annapurna Base Camp trekking trail goes along with view of beautiful peaks of the giants – Annapurna 1, Glacier Dome, Gangapurna, Fang and the fishtail peak which is called Machapuchare in Nepali Language. Although there is only one entrance to the sanctuary itself, we follow locally known, lesser-used approaches and exit routes on our premier Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

Annapurna Base Camp is encircled by the famous Himalayan peaks – the ‘fishtail’ spire of Machapuchare (6997m), Gangapurna (7454m), Annapurna 1 (8091m), the unclimbed Fang (7647m) and Annapurna South (7273m). The only approach follows the Modi Khola Valley through forests of oak, rhododendron and bamboo, passing through local Gurung villages to a world of soaring peaks.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek firstly drives from Pokhara to Nayapul or Phedi, then starts walking to follow the trekking trails. Anyway, this trail goes via Nayapul and trekking route follows to Tikhedhunga, Ghorepani, Tadapani to Chhomrong and lastly Annapurna Base Camp.

Hi Chiz Gurung
My travel vlog about Nepal might be 6 years late, but the fun memories are still fresh and thanks to your well organize package-customised tour for me…

3-country tour of Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet

I did an 18-day tour of these three countries through Adventure Land Tours operated by Chij Gurung in Thamel, Kathamndu. Arrangements done by Mr. Gurung were very good. Sightseeing and accommodations around Kathmandu were fine if you can overlook the traffic and bad roads around the city. Bhutan was exceptional, its a must see destination. And as for Tibet, I wouldn’t recommend anyone to travel to Tibet by road because road conditions are BAD, and it severely lacks in facilities. Lhasa is worth visiting so my sincere advice would be to fly into and out of Lhasa. If any one is looking for a personalized tour, I highly recommend Adventure Land Tours.
