The Annapurna base camp trek, a world-renowned trek to the lap of the Annapurna Himalaya where you will be greeted by unforgettable views of the surrounding peaks, Annapurna base camp trek starts in the lush lowlands and continues up to a high elevation amphitheater at the foot of Annapurna Himalayas. We have thrilling views of Annapurna I, the first peak above 8000 m to have been climbed in history, a feat accomplished by a French team in 1950; the feeling of being in the heart of the Himalayas will never be forgotten. The Annapurna base camp trek lies in the Annapurna Conservation area and one of the most popular trails among many trekking trails in the region, The Annapurna Base Camp passes through many villages of different ethnic communities having different culture and lifestyle with terraced fields to forests of rhododendron and bamboo with a wide range of flora and fauna and eventually the alpine heights. It provides non-stop natural diversity with lovely mountain views and Himalayan landscape. The sub-tropical forests come alive with an immense variety of bird life, waterfalls thunder down from steep cliff sides and monkeys chatter from the tree-tops, terraced fields and tropical fruit trees surround the neat, white-washed Gurung villages of the higher regions, leading the eye to vistas dominated by some of the Himalaya’s most majestic peaks.
