Annapurna Base Camp route has become one of the most popular trekking trails among the solo and adventure trekkers. It is also known as the Annapurna Sanctuary trek which has an extraordinary variety of ecosystems because of its unique combination of heights and depths. This oval-shaped high glacial basin is situated at an altitude of over 4000 meters surrounded by a ring of mountains – the Annapurna Himalayan range, most of which are above 7000 meters including two eight thousanders namely Annapurna (8,091m/26,546ft) and Dhaulagiri (8,167m/26,796ft).
Annapurna Sanctuary is a natural amphitheater and has been sacred to the local people for centuries. The entire sanctuary was held as sacred to the Gurung tribe, one of the many native inhabitants of the area. Our Annapurna Base Camp trek starts at Nayapul, about an hour scenic drive from Pokhara. We continue our trek towards the west trail from Birethanti which follows to Tikhedhunga and Ghorepani. The next early morning, our guide will wake you up to hike to Poonhill/Pun Hill, the popular view point where you can enjoy with the panoramic views of 32 snow-capped mountains of the Annapurna Himalayan range. The views at sunrise from Poonhill are simply stunning. We then trek towards Chhomrong and commence our journey into the Annapurna Sanctuary and further to Annapurna Base Camp. Annapurna Base Camp trekking is a good introduction to higher altitude without being too strenuous so that we have categorized this trek as medium-hard trek.
