Activity provided by
In Kathmandu Nepal, Bagmati, Nepal
Trekking in Annapurna Base Camp combines some of the most spectacular mountain scenery providing a fascinating insight into the modern hill life of Nepal. This unique trek along local trails, through forests, villages and terraced farmland treats you to unparalleled mountain scenery, surrounded by enormous glaciers giving you an inside experience into the Nepalese life and culture.
This trek starts and ends in Pokhara or it can be tailored as part of the Annapurna Circuit or the Jomsom/Miktinath trek by trekking from Tatopani through Ghorepani and Tadapani and joining the main Sanctuary trails at Chommrong.
The trail on the first days follows up to the Modi River and passes through dense stands of rhododendron and bamboo. By the time you reach the large rock over hanging, known as Hinku Cave, you will have noticed that the vegetation has thinned and the gorge narrowed to be only a few hundred meters wide. Steep, snow-clad ridges falling from Hiunchuli on the left and Machhapuchhre on the right from the entrance to the Sanctuary. As we pass through the “gate” and enter to the Sanctuary you find yourself in a huge amphitheatre enclosed by a solid wall of snow capped peaks.Show less
