What to Expect
The 8-days Annapurna Basecamp Trek is one of the short and beautiful treks in Annapurna region which gives trekkers a chance to experience the beauty of Mother Nature at its best. The trekking route takes trekkers through a densely forested path full of varieties of flora and fauna with changing the landscape, awe-inspiring mountain views, lush farmlands and traditional large Gurung villages. Annapurna Base Camp Trek features the panoramic view of massive mountains like Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna II (7937m), Annapurna III (7555m), Annapurna IV (7525m), Annapurna South (7219m), Fishtail Mountain (6993m), Mt Dhaulagiri (8167m), Hiunchuli (6441m), Gangapurna (7455m) and other Himalayan peaks. Along with the extraordinary view of mountains in the background, the trek also provides an opportunity to explore various ethnic groups like Gurung, Magar, Thakali, etc. and their unique culture and lifestyle. The trekking trail also takes trekkers to the different villages of Annapurna area from large Gurung village “Ghandruk” to Sinuwa, Deurali, Bamboo, & Jhinu Danda. Jhinu Danda offers trekkers an opportunity to enjoy the hot spring to relax their aching body from trekking.
