Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the most scenic hiking trails in the world. This will take you through stunning valleys, beautiful villages and panoramic views of the Himalayas before reaching the base camp of the legendary Annapurna I. Views of cascading waterfalls, terraced farmlands and snow-capped mountains are a common sight to behold. You’ll get to see the rural way of living of the mountain community and get to experience interacting with the locals.
The trip starts from Kathmandu where we will take a public bus to Pokhara. We will stay 1 night in Pokhara before embarking our jeep to the trailhead in Kimche where we will start our trek. The duration of the trek is 8-9 days not including our stay in Kathmandu and Pokhara. You’ll be accompanied by a Filipino coordinator and a local Nepalese guide to ensure our group’s safety. We will make your Annapurna Base Camp trek an experience you will treasure for life.
