The Annapurna Base Camp trek was opened up in the 1950s after the French climber, Maurice Herzog, successfully climbed to the tenth highest peak – Annapurna 1 – the first 8,000-metre peak to be climbed in the history of mountaineering.
On this trek, we follow the Glacial Modi River gorge, crossing the villages of Gurung and the vast natural bamboo forest, ending up at the Annapurna Base Camp, with its brilliant 360-degree views that will leave a lasting impression.
This wonder of Mother Nature is known to the locals as the ‘Goddess of Plenty’, and is surrounded by the impressive pinnacle of Mount Fishtail (also known as Machha Pucchere), Glacierdome and Gangapurna.
These trails lead us through the cultivated farming lands of Gurung, connecting us with specific ethnic groups, where you will experience the local landscape and the decorated Rhododendron Forest, towards the towering Point Poon Hill for its magical views of the massive mounts Dhaulagiri and Tukuche, with the world’s deepest river gorge (almost five kilometres) running below through the Kali Gandaki valley.
