Great fun walking to the glacial basin of Annapurna Base Camp through the lush vegetation and culturally rich Gurung villages.

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking is probably the most pleasant walk into the unbelievable natural amphitheater formed by the magnificently spectacular Himalayan peaks. The close-up views of soaring snow-capped peaks like Gangapurna (7454m), Annapurna 1 (8091m), the virgin peak Fang (7647m) and Annapurna South (7273m)  and the most unique peak Fishtail 6997m are great highlights of the easy trek in Nepal– the Annapurna Base Camp Trekking.

This moderately challenging trek to Annapurna Base Camp begins after a short drive from Pokhara to Nayapul.  The trek to Annapurna Base Camp begins along the trail that winds through Modi Khola Valley cross passes the alpine woodlands frequently emerging to the elevated hamlets to finally get into the paradise of snow the Annapurna Base Camp.

The trail to Annapurna Base Camp keeps changing the landscapes as it gradually climbs uphill it transforms its natural landscapes from the riverbank to the thick oak forests, rhododendron forests and from summer grazing lands to the rice pastures. The trekking to Annapurna Base Camp during spring is a greater experience as; the trial is redolent with colorful rhododendron blossoming throughout. Cultural encounter at several ethnically opulent Gurung hamlets and the most popular mountain viewpoint in Annapurna Region, Poonhill will keep on rewarding throughout this easy trek in Nepal. The sunrise view from Poonhill is probably the most beautiful sunrise in the region. As we enter the Annapurna Sanctuary, the spectacular views of Fishtail and Huinchuli will mesmerize you. Besides, Annapurna Conservation Area Project is the best opted home for 100 species of mammals, 60 reptiles and amphibians and more than 450 different species of birds.

The prime highlights of this trek are the panoramas of glaciated Himalayan giants from different positions. The hospitable receptions in the villages you pass by throughout any trek in Nepal are regarded bountiful rewards of the trekking adventures in Nepal.

I did the ABC trek with Bashu and it was just fantastic! Bashu is fluent in English and German and had in depth knowledge on all related questions that our group had on our trek. I will certainly come back to Nepal again and would book another trip with him in a heartbeat!

Last December 2015/January 2016 we made the 18 days EBC trek, together with guide Kumar of Nepal Footprint Holidays and our porter Sudeep. Both great guys!! We had a marvellous time and food and lodges were a perfect arrangement! Chitwan was a hell of a ride, but worth it. Parkland Hotel in Chitwan was 100 % the right choise!

Nepal Footprint might be a small company but nevertheless excellent! 10/10 we would contact them again for the ABC trek Annapurna in the future!!

I went several time in Nepal and I always take Nepal Footprint Holidaz Trek. Everything was amazing every time and I can not advise some one to go with an other agency.

Je me suis rendue au Nepal a maintes reprise, et je suis toujours partie en trek avec Nepal Footlprint Holiday. Thapalyia est super et tres professionel. Je ne peux que conseiller de choisir son agence afin de passer d excellentes vacances.
