Overview

Annapurna Base Camp Trek 2021 is one of the most awaited treks after the travel restrictions around the globe due to coronavirus in the year 2020. Owning to the power pack mélange of classic mountain views, traditions villages, lush alpine forests, rich ecosystem, biodiversity, and culture, Annapurna Base Camp Trek has always been the number one choice of the fellow travelers visiting Nepal. And, the lure of this trek is the same as the passage of time. Walking up to the beautiful sanctuary of mountains is a delightful experience. Many travelers have exclaimed the base camp as a heavenly place! No wonder, the set up of mountains that rise tall one over the other is absolutely fascinating. Moreover, the mixed feeling of wilderness and calmness as you gaze upon the snow-clad mountains, nothing can beat the joy of that feeling.

The charming journey to the Annapurna Base Camp starts from the vibrant lakeside city of Pokhara. Pokhara is a picturesque city in the alluring set up of mountains and lakes. From the city, the trek follows a conventional route along the foothills of Annapurna massif. We traverse through hills, valleys, villages, and dense forests of bamboo and rhododendron enriched with biodiversity. It is an overwhelming experience to walk past the villages and interact with the local folks. The trek offers an excellent opportunity to experience the warm and welcoming hospitality of locals mostly from people from Gurung and Magar communities. Above all, the undisturbed views of mountains in the backdrop, the trek is sure to awe your heart with a mind-blowing beauty of Mother Nature.

Also popular as Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, Annapurna Base Camp Trek brings you close to the mountains that rise above the elevation of seven and eight thousand. In a short period of time, a traveler can walk past the fields of rice & paddy. They can traverse through the dense forests and make their way up to the mountains. Ghorepani village and Poonhill on the way offer some astounding views of mountains which is an appetizer of your trip. The main course is served when you reach the base camp. The setting of the Annapurna Sanctuary is fabulous. One can applaud the raw appeal of mountains like Mt. Annapurna I, Annapurna South, Macchapuchhre, Hiunchuli, and other mountains that rise tall one over the other.

So, are you ready for this rewarding journey? The route has missed its fellow travelers for almost a year due to the pandemic of COVID-19. And, we are sure that you must have missed the trail as well. So, hurry and book your seats for 2021 because the trip is going to be different.
