Leave all the arrangements and paperwork to our experts at Orbit Alpine Adventures and just join us for the ultimate rewards offered during our Annapurna Base Camp trek.
Our trek to the Annapurna Base Camp begins from Nayapul, which is a highly frequented gatweway to Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP). From Nayapul we head towards Ghorepani, have a fascinating short hike to Poon Hill (one of the best Himalayan viewpoints), then proceed towards deep gorge between Machhapuchhre and Hiunchuli peaks, emerging on the other side into the narrow valley of Modi Khola, finally heading for Annapurna Sanctuary — the oval plateau situated over 4000m from sea level and 40kms immediately north of Pokhara Valley.
In less than 2 weeks, we can give you an enriching and overwhelming introduction to the abundance of flora and fauna of Nepal, along with the ways of life of Nepalese countryfolk and tantalizing natural beauty of this blessed country, perfected by the Himalayan Mountain Range, comprised of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, and Machhapuchhre (Fish Tail Mountain). We bet you are already tempted, and are ever ready to welcome you aboard for a perfectly organized, safe and absolutely enjoyable trek to Annapurna Base Camp.
