Perhaps one of the most eccentric yet common trekking in the Mid-Western Himalayan, Annapurna Base camp welcomes thousands of trekkers to its superb blend of nature with the beautiful villages. The route provides with the best scenery of the ice giants like Mt. Macchapuchhre(6.993m), Mt. Dhaulagiri(8,167m), Annapurna Range along with several others. The rocky trails, the beautiful grassland, unique villages, silent rivers and the thick forests make this one of the best treks you will ever venture upon. Walking through diverse landscape and backdrop, you will witness one of the best nature has to offer.
Annapurna Base Camp is situated at the height of 4,130m so acclimatization is one of the important factors. This trek, however, is one of the easier ones and does not require much physical fitness, however, we suggest caution. Our guides here at Happy Land Treks will provide necessary equipment and information for the success of the trek. All accommodation, food, and luggage will be taken care of.
On our way, we pass through the beautiful villages and their unique cultures. Mostly inhabited by Gurung and Magar, there are several ethnic groups up in the mountains. You can even visit Jhinu Danda, the place for the natural hot spring to relieve you of all the stress. Overall, this trip is custom-made for the exploration of this piece of heaven on earth.
