Annapurna Base Camp is not only a trek, it’s a tradition. Located in the vicinity of the Annapurna Conservation area, this trek takes us to the west of Kathmandu. Trekking in the foothill of the Annapurna Massif, trekkers can enjoy the view of the mystic peaks of the western Himalayas including the great Annapurna Range, Mt. Macchapuchhre (6,993m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and many others. The view of the rivers flowing down these numinous peaks and the deep Rhododendron, oak and bamboo forests are something to look for.

As we trek through the diverse landscape we will pass through several villages and get a chance to observe their culture and lifestyle. The forest provides us shade and the pleasant walk through the open grassland and meadow while gazing upon the huge eloquent mountain peaks feel the heart with ecstasy like no other. By the time we reach the Annapurna Base camp (4,130m) we will be endowed with the blessing of nature and culture like never before.

The trek to the popular Annapurna Base Camp is a rigorous one. Although the difficulty level is not that high, we will still need some level of physical fitness to go along. The tiring staircase, as well as the rocky trails, will push us to the limit. As we will trekking as high as 4,000m we will need to get accustomed to the high altitude. As such, acclimatization play a huge role. But, all is not bad. As we enjoy the western Himalayas and trek through the beautiful land, much of that strains alleviate by the beauty of nature.
