Annapurna Base Camp (Instant) - 7 Days

Annapurna Base Camp trek (ABC Trek) includes major peaks of the western portion of the great Annapurna Himal such as Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna, Gangapurna, Annapurna 3 and Machhapuchchhre, arranged almost precisely in a circle about 10 miles in diameter with a deep glacier-covered amphitheater at the center. From this glacier basin, known as the Annapurna Sanctuary, the Modi Khola knifes its way south in a narrow gorge fully 12,000 ft. deep. Further south, the gorge opens up into a wide and fertile valley, the domain of the Gurungs.

Overview

Few treks combine so many different landscapes and bring you so close to the base of 7,000 and 8,000-meter peaks in such a short period as the Annapurna Base Camp Trek.
The Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the most popular treks in the Annapurna region. The trail goes alongside terraced rice paddies, lush rhododendron forests, and high altitude landscapes with the Annapurna Range in view most of the time.

The lodges in the Annapurna Trekking Region are well equipped with extensive menus ranging from the typical Nepali Dal-Bhat (rice with lentils) to pizza and Chowmain. Hot showers are readily available as well. If you are planning to trek in the winter months please check with a travel agency to confirm which lodges are open.

The Annapurna trekking region is easily accessible with different trailheads starting just an hour or two away from Pokhara.

This trek starts from Pokhara, and this itinerary also begins from Pokhara. You can come to Pokhara from Kathmandu with a 6-hour drive or a 30 mins flight.
