Annapurna Base Camp Trek in Nepal

Trip Overview


Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the very popular Himalayan hiking trips in Nepal. Annapurna Base Camp is the foothill of Mount Annapurna, one of the world’s top ten high mountains which are above 8000 meters from sea level. Shortly Annapurna Base Camp trek is also called ABC Trek.

Some people also say Annapurna Sanctuary Trek to Annapurna Base Camp Trek because Annapurna Base Camp seems like a sanctuary that circled by beautiful snowy Himalayan peaks. The tallest peak you can view from the base camp is Mt Annapurna I. This is the 10th highest mountain in the world which rises to an elevation of 8,091 meters/ 26545 feet.

Apart from Annapurna I, from the Annapurna Base Camp, you can also easily see Mt Fishtail (Machapuchare), Mt Annapurna South, Mt Annapurna Fang, Mt Annapurna III, Mt Hiunchuli, Mt Gangapurna, Mt Khangsar Kang and Tent Peak. Most of the mountains in Annapurna Base Camp are over 7000 meters.

The entrance of Annapurna base camp is a narrow valley between the Mt Hiunchuli and Mt Machapuchare, where run-off from glaciers drain into Modi Khola River. Because of high mountains on all sides, the Annapurna Base Camp receives only 7 hours of sunlight in a day.

There are a couple of places where you can start hiking to reaching the Annapurna Base Camp. Every trekking trail of ABC passes through beautiful mountain villages, terraced farmlands, lush forest of oak and bamboo trees, sparkling streams and glacial moraines.

In spring everybody becomes more excited while trekking on this trail. Because its time of blossoming rhododendron flowers and it makes the hills colorful.
