For those interested in exploring the untamed wilderness of the Himalayas, the Annapurna Base Camp trek will be an unforgettable experience! Annapurna Base Camp trek features some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in the region, providing fascinating insight into the diverse geography and terrain of Nepal. This unique trek incorporates a variety of local trails, wandering through forests, villages and terraced farmland. Trekkers will experience unparalleled mountain scenery, surrounded by enormous glaciers and, simultaneously, creating a unique atmosphere in which individuals can truly experience authentic Nepalese life and culture.

The trek to Annapurna base camp follows the Modi River and passes through dense strands of rhododendron and bamboo. By the time trekkers have arrived at the large rock over hanging known as Hinku Cave, they will most likely have noticed a thinning of vegetation and a narrowing of the nearby gorge, now only a few hundred meters wide. Steep, snow-clad ridges falling from Hiunchuli on the left and Machhapuchhre on the right form the entrance to the Sanctuary. After passing through the “gate” and entering this stunning location, travelers will find themselves in a huge amphitheater enclosed by a solid wall of snow-capped peaks. This amazing natural scenery provides visitors with a chance to fully immerse themselves in the tranquility and solitude of the Himalayas without intensive technical climbing.

Typically, the Annapurna base camp trek starts and ends in Pokhara, That being said, it can also be incorporated into the Annapurna Circuit or the Jomsom / Miktinath trek by traveling from Tatopani through Ghorepani and Tadapani and, ultimately, joining the main Sanctuary trails at Chommrong.

We had an amazing trip to Kathmandu and Pokhara and really couldn’t recommend Surya and his team highly enough. Everything was so well organized but also very flexible and it was no problem for us to make a few changes to our itinerary during our trip. We will definitely be back to Nepal and will definitely be contacting Surya!

We just did a trekking tour with this company and I must say it was organised perfectly. Everything was smooth and trouble free! Our guide Babu was very knowledgable about the mountains and Nepal in general. My next trek will be definitely with the same guys, highly recommendable.

Our tour guide, Prem, was very knowledgeable and made sure we had a great time. He shared interesting facts about each place we visited and helped us immerse ourselves in the local culture. The accommodations were comfortable and had all the necessary amenities.

Incredible service and details for travelling in Nepal. They always know to do, helping with options and suggestions when making changes, modifications or travel adaptations according with your expectations and the experience looked in a great, unpredictable and surprising country like this. Surya, the owner and manager, takes care of all in a friendly and trustworthy way. Great people and operation!!!
