One of the most popular trek of the world  -the Annapurna Base Camp. The Annapurna region lies in the foothill of Mt. Annapurna in North-central Nepal stretching along with Lamjung Himal from the Kali Gandaki in the west to the Marshyangdi in the east. 

Trek to Annapurna Base Camp passes through waterfalls, villages, farmlands, rhododendron forests, and Annapurna Base Campmountain vistas. The Annapurna Base Camp trek, like others in the Annapurna region, takes off from the lake city of Pokhara.  Trekkers  pass through a diverse geographical and cultural variation with amazing ranges of flora and fauna in between. Needless to say that throughout this trekking journey we get to enjoy the sheer magnificence of the Himalayas, including two mountains that are above eight thousand meters - Mt. Annapurna (8091 m) and Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m); hospitality and rich culture of the local community and the brilliance of nature. Just imagine being in the company of some of the highest mountains on earth and the magnificence of the sunrise over the snow-capped Himalayas.
