Take this trip with Mountain Scenery Treks, and enjoy a complete experience of the Annapurna region of Nepal. Your trip begins from Pokhara and until you reach the Base Camp, you will go through numerous natural landscapes across hills, forests, mountains and waterfalls. Relax in the natural hot springs of Jhinu Danda, and have an unrestricted 360º view of the Annapurna Range. A trek through dynamic landscapes – with amazing views of the mountain ranges, and time-worn villages. Many trekkers to Nepal prefer Annapurna Base Camp because of its relative popularity and moderate level of challenge. The Annapurna Massif itself is lined by Marshyangdi River in the north and the east whereas the southern neighbour is the beautiful Pokhara Valley and the western region is a part of the Kali Gandaki Gorge. The main attraction of this trek is the beauty of Annapurna mountain range. It’s a chance to trek one of the most popular routes on the planet. The trek exposes you to numerous landscapes, flora and fauna of Nepal. A trip to Nepal is not complete without visiting Annapurna Base Camp. The trek is moderately challenging, attracting novices and pros alike of any age. Annapurna Base Camp is located within Annapurna Conservation Area, the first conservation area of Nepal. When you decide to trek in Nepal, you should consider Annapurna Base Camp as one of the first options. En route to ABC, you will also reach MBC or Machhapuchchhre Base Camp at 3,700 meters. Often, it pops up on charts and rankings as one of the best trekking routes on the planet. These are some of the highlights of the trip. The region has the world’s tenth highest mountain and covers an area of 7,629 square kilometers. With incredible scenery and not too difficult walk, this program attracts nearly everyone coming to Nepal.

Day 5:TREK FROM GHANDRUK TO CHHOMRONG (2150M) 6/7H TREK
Leaving behind Ghandruk in the morning, we travel up to the vantage point of Kimrungdanda with views of Annapurna South, Gangapurna, Himalchuli, and Mt. Machhapuchchhre. From there our trail descends sharply to reach a river, and again snakes up to Chere Danda. The trek continues with little stopovers until we reach the village of Chhomrong at an altitude of 2,170 meters. Having walked for around six hours, you will enjoy a good night’s rest at Chhomrong at the base of the majestic Annapurna range.

After a quick breakfast, today we head towards Deurali as we arrive near the Annapurna Base Camp. Bamboo, as the village is named after the thick bamboo forest surrounding it, is indeed a picturesque village that we leave today. First the trail ascends steadily up to Hinku Cave and from there the scenic route to Deurali begins. You will have wonderful views of hills and valleys and the river below. Lined along the route is a stretch of cliffs and some more open spaces until we arrive at Deurali. It is a quiet village at an altitude of 3,235 meters where we stay for the night.
Day 7:TREK FROM DEURALI TO ANNAPURNA BASE CAMP (4130M) 5/6H TREK
Today is the day we finally get to see the Annapurna Base Camp. Starting off easy along a river bed, the trail suddenly turns steep and more challenging until we arrive at Machhapuchchhre Base Camp where we take a brief stop and enjoy really close-up views of several mountains in the Annapurna Range. Once past the Machhapuchchhre Base Camp, you will notice that the flora and vegetation begins to disappear due to increasing altitude. However, you won’t notice the air getting thinner because when you reach the Annapurna Sanctuary, views of the looming Annapurna peak and a whole range of other mountains will make you completely forget the hardship. You will peacefully and whole-heartedly enjoy the splendor of the mountains at extremely close quarters.
Day 8:EXPLORE THE BASE CAMP AND TREK TO BAMBOO (2115M) 7/8H TREK
Today you will explore around the “hidden valley” and see at least one glacier. The aura is such that you will feel amazed at the landscape itself.
