Annapurna Base Camp, undoubtedly, is one of the best viewpoints in the world. It probably is the only place on earth, where you can feast your eyes on the dramatic view of amphitheatre-shaped massif -‘The Annapurna Massif’. This 55 kilometer long massif, containing one peak over 8000 meters, 13 peaks over 7000 meters and 16 peaks over 6000 meters, is simply one of the best creations of nature. The view of the panorama: Annapurna South, Bahara Shikar, Annapurna I, Gangapurna, Annapurna III, Machhapuchhre, Hiun Chuli and other sister peaks from the base camp are very much enticing. 

In addition to this, Annapurna Base Camp trek or the Annapurna Sanctuary route, which is beautifully accompanied by the amazing variety of terrain including, lowland pastures, bamboo and rhododendron forest, alpine scrub and culturally and artistically rich hillside villages will give you a life changing experience. 

Starting Nayapul, the walk through Tikhedhunga, Ulleri, Ghorepani, Tadapani, Chhomrong and Deurali to the Annapurna Base Camp. The clockwise return continues through Bamboo, Jhinu Hot Spring, Landuk and ends at Pothana.

Although 14 days Annapurna Base Camp trek is Amigo’s standard package, we can plan your trekking as per your requirements, ensuring the best trekking guide. However, our standard package guarantees the benefits of all meals and accommodation during the trek and bed and breakfast, before and after the trek.  The company also guarantees 100% departure on all customized trips with special group discount.  

However, shorter trips in the Annapurna region like 10 days Ghorepani – Poon Hill Trek and 12 days Annapurna Panorama Trek are equally fulfilling. These treks aren’t physically demanding, therefore, they are also perfect for family vacation. For supportive weather, plan your vacation either during spring or autumn and enjoy the trek. Nevertheless, if the Annapurna Base Camp is your target and, if you are limited by time, then we highly recommend our 11 days Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek Packge for you.
