Furthermore, Annapurna’s summit is also visible from the base camp, towering at an impressive 8091 meters. The trip begins in thriving Pokhara, the lake city of Nepal with its stunning views and exciting night life.

Similarly,the breathtaking scenery and awe-inspiring wonders of the Annapurna Sanctuary await on this unforgettable 13-day trek. From our destination, the Annapurna Base Camp, you’ll behold the craggy as well as shimmering south face of Annapurna I – the world’s 10th-tallest peak. We’ll steal glimpses of Machapuchare (Fishtail), called the “Matterhorn of Asia”. And revered as sacred to the god Shiva, which is dotted by glaciers and limned in a sheer cliff face. As your guides guide you through the mountains and between cozy tea houses, you’ll meet the kind, welcoming locals. Similarly you come to know that hospitality has no language. Furthermore the Annapurna Base Camp is a trek more viable for many, in comparison to the Everest Base Camp, and is therefore popular with adventurers with a varying range of experience.
