    About - Annapurna Base Camp Trek - 10 Days

    Annapurna Base Camp trek is an amazing journey through various landscapes, diverse cultures, rich mountain vistas, terraced fields, charming Gurung ethnic villages, and wide varieties of exotic flora and fauna. Mt. Annapurna I (8,091m) is the 10th highest mountain in the world and our journey to reach its base camp is one of the most popular and famous trekking destinations in Nepal. Annapurna ranges extend from Vara-Shikar towards Manaslu and Lamjung Himal in roughly 65-70km lateral distance. This range includes one peak over 8,000m and thirteen peaks over 7,000m. The landscapes of the Annapurna region provide stunning scenery and early morning views of the mountains are breathtaking. The sunrise and sunset on Annapurna Massif would be the most fascinating things to do. Moreover, Mt. Machapuchhre (Fishtail) is the most iconic peak in the Annapurna mountain range which is revered by the Nepalese for its unique beauty.

    In 10 days, you can experience the diverse culture, traditions, and religious practices of the Gurung community. Normally, the trek starts from Ghandruk village, a famous and traditional Gurung community in the foothills of the Annapurna Himalayas. The beautiful landscapes along with forests and rivers take you to another beautiful village Chhomrong with the amazing backdrops of Annapurna South. The next day we will head to Dovan, where you will be awarded the outstanding views of Mt. Machapuchhre, Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, and neighboring mountains. The trail passes through the wooded area filled with bamboo and rhododendron trees beside the Modi river and reaches the MBC before reaching ABC. The next day, you will experience the beautiful sunrise on the top of the Annapurna ranges and neighboring mountains.

      Annapurna Region Trek

      Annapurna was way beyond my expectations. I traveled to Nepal last December especially because I had nothing much to do at that time and I saw the Annapurna Region trek package online at affordable prices by luxury holiday Nepal. When I reached Tribhuwan airport, Guide was already there waiting for me. He carried my bag to the car and my accommodation was in the hotel Holy Himalaya that night. Thus our trek began. We walked on the Himalayan grounds; through waterfalls, rivulets, paddies fields, suspension bridges, forests, and villages. It was an incredible experience. It was like living in harmony with beautiful nature and a healthy lifestyle away from city noises, rushes, and pollution. However, the stay in Nepal had already found its place in my head; as a beautiful memory.

      This is only possible through their support and care. Thank you!

      How Giant Mountain Annapurna is really!

      What an amazing trip! I absolutely loved this trek that I felt safe, well cared for and well organized by the Luxury Holidays Nepal. They were at every step with easy communication and information. Guide and porter also made us free, and comfortable at all times. They were incredible in their knowledge of the mountain, the trails, and the culture and could answer all the quarries. The trek was stunning scenery and an amazing sense of achievement. It was an unforgettable trip in my entire life.

      I highly recommended Luxury holiday Nepal and join this company for further holidays.
