The Annapurna Base Camp Trek is a hike to the amphitheatre of the Annapurna Sanctuary surrounded by many famous Himalayan peaks – including Machapuchare (6,997m), Gangapurna (7,454m), Annapurna I (8,091m), Annapurna South (7,273m), and the unclimbed Fang (7,647m).
Our journey begins in the city of Pokhara, a short flight away from Kathmandu. Our trek starts from Birethanti (1,000m), a village by the Modi River, walking through forests and climbing a stone ‘staircase’ to Ulleri, Chomrong (2,060m) a local Gurung village.
We pass the Hinku Cave; we then reach the ‘gate’ into the sanctuary – a spectacular pass between the peaks of Machapuchhre and Himchuli. Highlights of the trek include the spectacular sunrise from Poon Hill, oak, rhododendron, and bamboo forests full of exotic wildlife, and trekking to Machapuchhre Base Camp (3,729m) and Annapurna Base Camp (4,620 m).
