The Annapurna Base Camp gives a deep-rooted feeling of trekking. It is indeed a fantastic and adventurous for those people who love enjoying by the natural flora and fauna with pedantic snow-capped peaks. This ideal trek is a classical one to take unparalleled mountain scenery and enormous glaciers' outlook including true Nepalese life and culture. Annapurna Base Camp trekking starts and ends in Pokhara being a part of Annapurna Circuit or Jomsom / Muktinath trek. The Annapurna Base Camp is spreader from Tatopani through Ghorepani and Tadapani by joining the main Sanctuary trail at Chhomrong. The trek involves several ascents and descents but not so hard to attempt as there are several alternative routes to the Sanctuary, all meeting at Chhomrong.

Annapurna Base Camp trails is also famous for trekkers because of the principal peaks of the western portion of the great Annapurna Himal, including Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna, Ganagapurna, Annapurna III and Machhapuchhare, are arranged almost precisely in a circle about 10 miles in diameter with a deep glacier-covered amphitheater at the center. From this glacier basin, known as the Annapurna Sanctuary, the Modi Khola knifes its way south in a narrow gorge fully 12,000 ft. deep. Further south, the gorge opens up into a wide and fertile valley, the domain of the Gurungs. The middle and upper portions of Modi Khola offer some of the best short trekking in Nepal, and the valley is located so that these treks can be easily combined with treks into the Kali Gandaki region to the west.

Taking us to the most iconic base camp of all at the foot of the greatest mountain in the world, Mount Everest (8848m), this is one of the world's classic treks. Walking through Sherpa country past cultivated fields and small villages, we have time to acclimatise before reaching spectacular high altitude scenery: the incredible monastery at Thyangboche, views of Ama Dablam, Everest and other mighty Himalayan peaks. As well as reaching Base Camp, we have the opportunity to climb Kala Pattar (5545m) for a magnificent view of the highest mountain on Earth.
