What to Expect
Annapurna Base Camp Trek offers many a reason for trekkers to be fascinated during the whole trip. Highlights of the trek include panoramic views of mountain ranges and peaks, captivating sunrises and sunsets, terraced farmlands, ample time to villages of different ethnic groups and ample time to immerse yourself in the Himalayan lifestyle plus warm hospitality of the local people. It starts after a few hours’ drive from Pokhara. The route ascends through villages inhabited by different ethnic groups, specially the Gurung and Pun people. Meet Nepali people doing usual ups and downs in the course of daily life. The settlements, farmlands and forests give way to each other during the whole tour with the settlements getting thinner as you climb higher.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek covers Ghorepani Poonhill Trek as well. In springtime, the forest around this area is covered with blooming rhododendron. Poonhill offers fabulous views of the mountains in Annapurna range, preparing you to the extreme beauty of the destination. Please visit our gallery for Annapurna photos, which give you a glimpse of what you can find during the trip. And since, Machhapuchre Base Camp lies en-route Annapurna Base Camp, you will also reach the bottom of Mount Fishtail that beautifies Pokhara.

Except for the rainy season, Annapurna Base Camp Trek can be done almost throughout the year. However, it gets more exciting and memorable during springtime with the forest taking on the glamour of rhododendron bloom.
