trip overview

An “Annapurna Sanctuary Trek” is another name for the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. It is situated in Nepal’s Gandaki Pradesh’s Kaski District. A simple trip in Annapurna Nepal is the ABC trek. After traveling 1:30 hours from Pokhara, Annapurna Base Camp Trek begins from Dhampus Phedi or Nayapul.

37.1 total kilometers separate from Pokhara from Annapurna base camp. Similar to this, Birethanti serves as both a TIMS checkpoint for trekkers and the entrance to the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP). You have plenty of time to do this hiking. In March and April, you may see a paradise of rhododendron forests and colorful blooms. Autumn lasts from September through November in the Himalayas, with October being the best month to walk the Annapurna Circuit.

Because of the rain, there are no longer any dusty walkways. But Ghorepani Poon Hill, at 3210m, offers a stunning mountain panorama. This overlook is the primary vantage point for the Ghorepani Poon Hill walk. You can view Mount Dhaulagiri (8167m), Tukuche Peak, the Nilgiri Mountains, the Massif Annapurna Range, Himalchuli, and Lamjung Himal.

The local communities along the Annapurna Sanctuary Trail are typical Gurung and Magar settlements. We have 11 days of excellent climbing up into the Annapurna range on the Annapurna Sanctuary Trip. The cultural dances of several different ethnic groups are also performed in this region. While traveling beneath some of the tallest mountains on Earth, we follow the valley. It develops into a deep canyon before continuing to its glaciated roots at the foot of the towering Annapurna.

The hiking route takes hikers through a lovely ravine after Sinuwa (the trek’s final settlement) until they reach the Annapurna Base Camp, which is located at 4130 meters. Around 20.8 kilometers separate Sinuwa from the Annapurna base camp. The journey to Annapurna Base Camp is a modest one, despite so many difficulties. The hike is not particularly difficult. It provides a number of difficulties, including strenuous and rocky hiking trails, scaling stone stairs, daily walking lengths of five to six hours, and so on.

You can view Annapurna I, which is 8081 meters high, Annapurna South, Himalchuli, Tent Peak, and Fishtail from Annapurna Base Camp. And many more nearby peaks on this adventure of a lifetime. Join us on your journey to the Himalayas, and we’ll ensure that you have a successful and wonderful vacation in Nepal. Situated in a national park that is home to the world’s deepest gorge, a number of high-alpine lakes, and exceptional wildlife.

Moreover, the climate affects Annapurna Base Camp’s safety. Although it is a personal choice, it is suggested that you go to Annapurna Base Camp as a group. Group travel has greater benefits than traveling alone. The variable climate of Annapurna may provide difficulties for walkers.

Kaski, Manang, Mustang, Myangdi, and Lamjung are just a few of the Nepalese districts that are a part of the Annapurna Conservation Area. The Annapurna Base Camp trek offers breathtaking views of the Annapurna Massif, Dhaulagiri, Pisang, Fishtail, Hiunchuli, Tilicho, and Pungda Danda, among many more peaks.

Amazing Annapurna Trek

Amazing Annapurna Trek. The trek was great with amazing scenery. Chandra (Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt. Ltd.) is very good at responding to emails. So, you can organize almost everything on the internet, including trekking permits.

He is also very available by telephone via the guide; this was good for me as I could vary the itinerary at short notice. They tend to use the same places (lodges and cafes) on the route to keep a reasonable level of quality. Because the sleeping bag was of top quality which is important for cold nights. And everyone in this small, family company is a smiling family. Because of the amazing Annapurna Trek. The trek was great with amazing scenery. Chandra (Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt. Ltd.) is very good at responding to emails so you can organize almost everything on the internet, including trekking permits.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Chandra

Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Chandra, I met Chandra in October 2008 when I did the Annapurna Base Camp Trek with him as my guide. I was very impressed by his friendliness and his vast knowledge of Nepalese culture and the local communities. If you go trekking in the beautiful regions of the Himalayas, Chandra is the perfect guide. He is a very professional and skillful guide and you truly feel that you are in good hands even though the trekking itself can be challenging. He is very trustworthy and knows what he is doing.

After we arrived back in Kathmandu. Chandra showed me many different places in the city and even invited me to a local restaurant to try some typical Nepalese food. So, it was a great experience.

Since then I have kept in contact with him and I visit him every time I go back to Nepal. He has invited me to come and visit his own village. And the day I get the time I will definitely go!

I simply can’t recommend him enough.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek 2015

Annapurna Base Camp Trek 2015. We had a fantastic trek with Dinesh in 2015. He is a very friendly and helpful guide. He always answered our questions about the trek and Nepali Gurung culture. I especially liked the “Briefing” he gave each morning or evening, telling us details about the next day of walking.

I also appreciated Dinesh`s flexibility to change our plans easily when we became sick and when the earthquake hit Nepal but we hope to come back in the future and trek with Dinesh again. Thanks.

Wonderful Time in Nepal

Wonderful Time in Nepal. We had a wonderful time on our Annapurna Base Camp Trek in Nepal in 2015. Dinesh was a likely, knowledgeable, and attractive guide. But his ever-present smile and attention to detail made the more difficult part of the trek easier. It was particularly helpful to hear about the plan for our trek. Because we were alone our daily briefing was perfect for this purpose.

We had seen many mountains like Mt. Dhaulagiri, Tukuche Peak, Nilgiri, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Himchuli, Fishtail, and many more.

Thank you again for such a wonderful experience. So, I highly recommend this company and hope to return to trek ABC again will. Thanks.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Annapurna Base Camp is a good trek in Nepal. Very nice guide and a very well-organized tour. I got a very good welcome at the beginning of Kathmandu. Did the trek in 8 days which was quite quick but could spend an extra day in Pokhara afterward! 😉
