Annapurna Basecamp Trek


Annapurna Base Camp Trek (ABC Trek), is regarded as one of the most popular destinations in Nepal by both national and international trekkers. It offers the best of everything in relation to your time and financial investment because it provides the best vistas of so many different Himalayan peaks.
The difficulty level is also not so demanding as the trek to Everest Base Camp, and the peak altitude is approximately 1200 meters lower. Sometimes in winter, heavy snow fall can cause the trip to be more difficult.
Located in the western part of Nepal, in the very lap of the Himalaya, ABC trek reveals sights of many significant peaks, including Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Gangapurna, Annapurna III and Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), all over 6000 meters high.
You will feel encompassed by these dazzling mountains, as you pass through many evergreen landscapes, being greeted and welcomed by friendly and cheerful Nepali people along the way https://i../indian-levitra/. Our trail includes passing by a glacier, dense lush forest, fragrant flowers, farmlands, buffalo, donkeys, some small wild animals and traditional Nepali villages.
This trek has both beauty, diversity and challenge, and there is nowhere else quite like it.
