Annapurna Base Camp Trek
2 weeks of tea house trekking adventure in the Himalayas.
This Annapurna base camp trekking is one of best moderate plus two weeks tea house trek in the Himalayas. It combines the breathtaking Himalayan vista with incredible cultural diversity at its best. We hike through the hatched roofed settlements and serene lust alpine rhododendron forest. It offer a great opportunity if you ever had a dream to get into the midst of snowy peaks. Obviously no worry of any altitude problems. We stay at local tea house which allow us to chat with local people to explore and know them at first hand. We encounter many ethnic groups while trekking mainly Gurung and Magar, better known as brave Gurkhas.
Hike to the Annapurna Base Camp
Notably this adventure to the Annapurna Base Camp trek start from Pokhara Valley, scenic lake city in Nepal. We start our trip with ascend of Annapurna foothill to the Ghorepani. Furthermore we take morning exploration hike to the Poon hill for the tantalising sunrise view. The fifth highest mountain Dhaulagiri dominates the skyline across the deepest Kali Gandaki gorge while the Annapurna south and Machhapuchhre loom high above us. Not to miss the panoramic view from Poon hill – simply the best.
No double the hike to Poon hill allows time for proper acclimation before we ascend the Annapurna base camp. Climbing higher along the narrow gorge of Modi Kola we reach the Annapurna base camp via the Machapuchare base camp. You find yourself in midst of impressive snowy peaks including Annapurna I, Annapurna III, Annapurna south, Hiumchuli, tent peak, Gangapurna and fluted fishtail. Undoubtedly this high and glaciated wilderness sanctuary is simply breathtaking and incomparable in your Annapurna base camp trek.
