One of the most classic treks in the world
Trekking to Annapurna Base Camp is the center of one of the greatest Himalayan travel experiences. It blends snow-clad mountains soaring high up above the clouds and thousands of years of culture, tradition, languages and landscape diversity. From hillocks, hills, the deepest gorge in the world, waterfalls, and glaciers to high elevation lakes, high mountains and an extremely hospitable environment, the trekking experience of the region is unrivalled.
Receiving over 100,000 tourists every year, trekking here is considered to be one of the most classic treks in the world. The whole region of Annapurna, including the Annapurna massif falls under the Annapurna Conservation Area, and is home to the elusive Snow Leopard and Red Panda, as well as blue sheep - which are very common along the Annapurna trails. The green and lush pine and rhododendron forests harbor a vast diversity of avian faunas. Himalayan griffon, the national birds of Nepal, can be seen soaring above the skies surrounding the Annapurna massif.
Your adventure begins today. Please be informed, that you might have to face a long queue for immigration clearance and it gets messy during baggage collection. It’s a common scenario due to the lack of proper infrastructure and the high volume of tourists’ inflow during the peak season. However be assured about the helpful airport staff and friendly Nepali people around you. Our representative will be there to receive/greet you. Just look around to locate our company’s logo at the placard. You will be transferred to hotel. There will be full briefing in the evening.
