Trip Outline

There are few treks that combine so many different landscapes and bring you so close to the base of 7,000 and 8,000-meter peaks in such a short period of time as the Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

The Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the most popular treks in the Annapurna region. The trail goes alongside terraced rice paddies, lush rhododendron forests and high altitude landscapes with the Annapurna Range in view most of the times.

The setting of Annapurna Base Camp at 4130 m is unique and incredibly spectacular, set amidst the majestic peaks of Annapurna I (8091 m), Annapurna South (7219 m), Machapuchhre (6993 m) and Hiunchuli (6441 m).

The itinerary presented here takes 7days, starting from Nayapul (a 1.5-hour drive from Pokhara) and going north up to ghandruk. From ghandruk, you go eastward to Chomrong and then north again entering the Modi Kola Valley which leads up to the Base Camp.

Many people trek the circuit Nayapul-Ghandruk-Nayapul, which is very rewarding in itself. This trek can easily be done with children as well.

You can return via Jhinu Danda and give your tired muscles a well-deserved rest in the delightful hot springs.

The lodges in the Annapurna Trekking Region are well equipped with extensive menus ranging from the typical Nepali daal bath (rice with lentils) to pizza and stir-fry noodles (Chow Mein). Hot showers are readily available as well.

The Annapurna trekking region is easily accessible with different trailheads starting just an hour or two away from Pokhara.

It is possible to do this trek in all seasons; however, in the winter the Base Camp can sometimes be closed due to the snow level. In springtime the huge rhododendron forests are in full bloom which gives the trek an extra appeal.
