									            ANNAPURNA BASE CAMP TREK
                                        (16 days)

Annapurna Base Camp (a trek in sync with ecological beauty at its best)
Trekking in the shadows of the Annapurna

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking is a moderate nature trek that starts at Phedi, a short drive
of about 45 minutes from Pokhara, which takes you to the foot [Base Camp, 4130m] of Mt.
Annapurna, one of the most magnificent peaks in the world. The trail takes you through
fascinating traditional villages of Nepal’s ethnic communities of the Gurung, Magar, and
Thakali who will greet you very warmly if you cared to stop for a conversation. The hike
continues through dense rhododendron forest with towering snowy peaks in the
background. The return walk is even more interesting as the trek winds around different
ridges towards Ghorepani, where you witness breathtaking views of an early morning
sunrise where a red halo seeps through glistening gaps over the snow capped peaks of the
Annapurna & Dhaulagiri Mountains. The sceneries seen throughout this trek grace the
landscape of the Himalayas where imagination defines the beauty of nature as an
experience            that            can           never          be           forgotten.

The Annapurna Base Camp trek will be even more interesting in spring as the whole forest
along the trail turns red, pink and white with rhododendron flowers. This wonder trip can
be done anytime of the year except during the monsoons [July thru August].
