Annapurna base camp trek is an astonishing trekking experience which goes through diverse scene and culture with exhilarating views of mountain vistas, terraced fields, Gurung villages and a wide assortment of vegetation. Standing 8091m tall, Mt. Annapurna is the tenth most elevated mountain in the world and the trek to its base camp, which is at 4130m/13549ft height, is a standout amongst the most prevalent trekking destinations on earth. Amid the trek, one can get the glance of great pinnacles of Annapurna I (8091 m), Annapurna South (7219 m), Machapuchhre (6993 m) and Hiunchuli (6441 m). Our Annapurna Base Camp Trek has a short, 11-day itinerary contrasted with most strolls in this district paving the way to the base camp.

Today, we will go through bamboo forest which is clammy and frosty and then rise consistently with a couple soak segments. Hiking through dense bamboo forest and rhododendron bushes, amazing landscapes, and the Annapurna Himalaya range, the trail will take you to Himalaya Hotel. From here we can see the trail drop nearer to the stream before climbing again to the final destination for the day; i.e. Deurali.

Early in the morning, we will climb tenderly through a stream bed then over a lofty trail over to the mountain side. The climb from Bagar to Machhapuchhre Base Camp is fairly strenuous. From Machhapuchhre base camp we get brilliant perspectives of the great Machhapuchhre alongside Mt. Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Annapurna III, Gandharvachuli and Gangapurna which is surely remunerating scenery. The vegetation vanishes on our approach to ABC and the way broadens as we enter the Annapurna sanctuary.
