Annapurna Base Camp Trek 13 days Deluxe Plan

Annapurna Base Camp (also known as Annapurna Sanctuary or ABC) a snowy valley is another one of Nepal’s scenic and adventurous trekking routes. It is a deep glacier, which gives the effect of an amphitheatre surrounded by a ring of impressive high peaks including: HiunChuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna l, Ganggapurna, Annapurna III and Machhapuchhre. The trail to this awe-inspiring scene ascends the Annapurna foothills through forested hillsides, where we are given a taste of Nepal’s magical and majestic vistas with a spectacular sunrise over the Annapurnas and Dhaulagiri at Poon Hill. It continues through scattered Gurung settlements, cross terraced fields and abundant forests before climbing gradually into a world of ice and snow at Base Camp, the ‘Sanctuary of the Gods’’. Returning to Pokhara by a different route this trek offers truly fascinating scenery, with a combination of picturesque rice-fields, villages and a panorama of high peaks.

Then, we will come back to Ghorepani, have a hot breakfast, and continue walking to Tadapani 2630m. We can see very close view of Mt. Fishtail from here.

Next, it’s a steep descent takes us to the KimrongKhola. After another steep ascent from KimrongKhola to ChereDanda, we descend for a while then it’s a gentle walk to Chhomrong.  Chhomrong is a beautiful village located on the lap of the giant Annapurna massive.

The trail out of Chhomrong descends via 2500 stone steps and crosses the ChhomrongKhola on a swaying suspension bridge. It is an uphill climb to Sinuwa. Next, we pass through a beautiful forest to Kuldihar followed by an easy downhill walk to Bamboo.

Day 07: Bamboo to Deurali (3230m.)  4.00 hours O/N lodge

We pass through the bamboo forest which is damp and cold then ascend steadily with fewer steep sections. It is only after reaching Himalaya Hotel that the forest opens up and we are out in the sun again with astounding views of the glacial river below. It is a steep climb up through a much drier forest before reaching Hinku Cave. From here we can see the trail drop closer to the river before climbing again to Deurali, the most scenic stretch of the day. The vegetation is sparser, allowing magical views of the valley, the river below, and the sheer rock face cliffs above with bands of wispy waterfalls.

Day 08: Deurali to Annapurna Base Camp (4,130m.) via Machhapuchhre Base Camp (3700m. 6.00 hours O/N lodge

Climb gently through a river bed then over a steep trail over to the mountain side. The hike from Bagar to Machhapuchhre Base Camp is somewhat strenuous. From Machhapuchhre base camp we get excellent views of the majestic Machhapuchhre along with Mt. Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Annapurna III, Gandharvachuli and Gangapurna which is certainly a rewarding experience. The vegetation disappears on our way to ABC and the path widens as we enter the Annapurna sanctuary. From here, we get sensational views of the near-vertical south face of Annapurna towering above us. The sanctuary boasts of a dynamic view without anything impeding the 360-degree panorama. From the base camp we again get to savor mesmerizing views of the Machhapuchhre, Annapurna south, Annapurna I, Hiunchuli and other peaks.

Day 09: Annapurna Base Camp to Bamboo 7.00 hours O/N lodge

From the Annapurna base camp we retrace our steps to Bamboo. Today’s trek is downhill so it shouldn’t be very difficult. Besides, we will always have the company of the extraordinary landscape to cheer us up.
