Annapurna Base camp Trek Overview

The Annapurna Base Camp trip is one of the best you’ll ever know for trekking…hiking on trails of pretty landscapes and vibrant villages steaming with life. These fascinating villages are inhabited by a combo of communities who welcome you warmly…it makes you feel as if you had known them for eons…and the syrupy tunes of lovely birds that seem to welcome you makes the heart flutter!!! This is a classic journey that cuts across well known paths into the exclusive Annapurna sanctuary where the scenery shows nature upfront…

Know the land:

You hike to the base of the 10th highest mountain on the planet with astounding sights of the Annapurna range, Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri, Tukuche peak, Dhampus peak, Hiunchuli and the sacred Machhapuchre peak; this also includes box office views of Gangapurna, Lamjung Himal and other famous mountains you hadn’t seen before. The trip offers excitement of a life time. We’ve planned the itinerary to also include one of the prime hotspots of the Annapurna region, ‘Poon Hill’’, which is arguably the most panoramic vantage point on the planet, especially for brilliant sunrise and sunsets of gripping proportions. Mt. Annapurna was the first 8000m peak to be summated by a French expedition led by Maurice Herzog in the month of June 1950. this peak is considered one of the most risky peaks on earth and the account of this heroic climb is told in one of the most captivating stories of mountaineering adventure in the book ‘Annapurna’ also written by Maurice Herzog…

nevertheless, Our hike to Annapurna Base Camp doesn’t go to such mind blowing heights if compared, ours is more or less a cool hike in the mountains because the massive peaks we come across on the trail are all the same, but we do find ourselves thinking of the brave climbers who dared peaks like the Annapurna 1, its huge.

What is special about this trip are the cultural gems we come across on the way of the folks who live on these mountains and their religious beliefs. This region is a wonderful blend of the holy where Hinduism mingles with Buddhism and each live in peace and agreement with one another. The local folks on the lower reaches of the mountains survive on a livelihood of cultivation that includes rice, wheat, maize and vegetables whereas the folk on the upper reaches grow mainly apples, barley and other crops that are suitable for alpine climates. Those who live on higher elevations tend animals for meat and wool which is used for trading. Life is always a challenge at higher elevations in comparison to their neighbours at the lower hills where the climate is pleasant on inhabitants.
