Annapurna Base camp Trek or Annapurna Sanctuary Trek (ABC) is the best trek in Nepal. It offers a hike into the dazzling natural amphitheater. You will be peeking into the beautiful peaks of the giants. Annapurna 1, Glacier Dome, Gangapurna, and Machhapuchare. Although there is only one entrance to the sanctuary itself, we follow the hidden path. Lesser-used approaches are hard to find on such popular trails. Finally, we exit routes on our premier Annapurna Base Camp Trek.
Annapurna Base Camp Trek starts with a flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara. We start our Base Camp Trek with a short drive from Pokhara to Nayapul. We walk to a village by the Modi River, Birethanti (1000m). Walking through the oak forest we cross several side valleys, which run into the Modi Khola. A stone ‘staircase’ climb takes us to the first Gurung village of Chomrong (2060m). Trekking past Hinku cave, we reach to the place also known as the ‘gate’ into the Sanctuary.
A pass between the spectacular peaks of Hiunchuli and Machapuchare. The glaciated and snow-covered peaks of the Sanctuary form a spectacular barrier. Dazzling views confront us as we trek up through the last permanent settlements. On Machapuchare Base Camp (3729m) we explore the superb views of ‘Fishtail’ mountain. While here we will also visit the Annapurna South Base camp.
The vast amphitheater of the Annapurna Sanctuary is full of famous Himalayan peaks. The ‘fishtail’ spire of Machapuchare (6997m) is well known among travelers. Gangapurna (7454m), Annapurna 1 (8091m), the unclimbed Fang (7647m) and Annapurna South (7273m). The only approach follows the Modi Khola Valley. You need to make a way through forests of oak, rhododendron, and bamboo. You will also come across local Gurung villages living to a world of soaring peaks.
