Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

The hidden stronghold of Annapurna Base Camp (also known as Annapurna Sanctuary or ABC) is just another one of Nepal’s scenic, and adventurous trekking routes. It is a deep glacier, which gives the effect of an amphitheatre surrounded by a ring of impressive high peaks including: Hiun Chuli, Annapurna South, Fang, Annapurna l, Ganggapurna, Annapurna III and Machhapuchhre. The trail to this awe-inspiring scene ascends the Annapurna foothills through forested hillsides, where we are given a taste of Nepal’s magical and majestic vistas with a spectacular sunrise over the Annapurnas and Dhaulagiri at Poon Hill.
