Annapurna Base Camp Trek
The Annapurna Base Camp Trek (often referred to as the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek) is the second most popular trek in Nepal. This trek is considered moderate for Himalayan trekking and has outstanding opportunities for exploring cultural, geographical and biodiversity regions in North-West Nepal. There are two different gateways into the region: via Ghandruk and via Kande. Shiva Excursion recommends the trek via Ghorepani so that you can experience the shrub forest, impressive Poon Hill viewpoint and exceptional cordial reception from the Gurung and Magar people. You will tread on stone steps and local trails following streams and valleys leading to the Annapurna base camp via Machhapuchhre base camp. One of the best experiences of the trip will be in a natural amphitheater, where you will be encircled by the Annapurna massifs from 3 sides. The sunrise views at 4131 m (13,553 ft) are unforgettable!
