Overview

The Annapurna Base Camp trek, also known as ABC trekking, is an exhilarating adventure that takes you to the breathtaking Annapurna Base Camp. Situated at an altitude of 4,130 meters, this trek offers stunning views of the Annapurna mountain range.

The abc trek route is well-established and takes you through picturesque landscapes, charming villages, and lush forests. The cost of the Annapurna Base Camp trek can vary depending on factors such as the duration and the type of accommodation chosen. Here we provide you with the standard service and fix days for the above price. It is advisable to compare prices and choose a tour package that suits your budget.

From Ghorepani, you go east to Chomrong and then north into the Modi Kola Valley, leading up to the Annapurna Base Camp. It exhibits many beautiful flowers in Spring, including Nepal’s national flora Rhododendron. In addition, you will come across orchids, the Machhapuchhre massif, and the deepest gorge Kali Gandaki during the trek. 

Poon Hill is a point of view of Annapurna Base Camp Hike plus other peaks and sunrise and sunset. We could do this trek in all seasons. However, due to the snow level, the Annapurna Base Camp can sometimes be closed in the winter. The vast rhododendron forests are in full bloom in springtime, which gives the trek an extra attraction.

Reaching the base camp is a rewarding experience as you are greeted by towering snow-capped peaks, including the majestic Annapurna I.

    I did the Annapurna base camp trek with Nepal Mountain Adventure. I had the best time with the best people ever! From the beginning untill the end the communication was great. They listened and helped us in so many ways. Everything is arranged so you don’t have to worry about anything but hiking. Not only was the hike (and everything that comes with it) breathtaking, the people I’ve met made this experience top notch. We simply had the best guide: Dip!
