Annapurna base camp trekking is the most frequently done trekking in Nepal which hits the top of the list even before Everest trekking. We travel to the heart of the Annapurna Himalayan ranges in this awesome journey to arrive at the base of world's 10th highest Mt Annapurna.

It needs no explanation why this route is so famous. The daily dose of incredible views of the gifted nature while exploring the mid hills, the inhabitation of the typical Gurung and Magar tribe passing through the enchanting rhododendron forests and the awe-inspiring landscapes are just indescribable. The most popular Poon Hill falls in this journey, which is the best vantage point for observing stunning Himalayan ranges from pretty up close during sunrise and sunset time.

People with no experience in trekking and weak-hearted in terms of travelling can also join this beautiful trip to Annapurna. The most preferable times are the spring and autumn season though it can be done in other times as well. It’s better to rather go straight on the trek to Annapurna base camp than hearing from people then only you will realize how beautiful it is.
