Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) Trek is one of the most popular treks in Nepal. It is quite easy and shorter treks than other high altitude treks in Nepal. This trek incorporates diverse terrain, culture, and wildlife reservation. Along with the most spectacular and close up view of Annapurna range, Machhapuchhre, Hiunchuli, and Dhaulagiri.
In Spring, it showcases many beautiful flowers including the national flower of Nepal – Rhododendron. Orchids, Machhapuchhre massif and the deepest gorge Kali Gandaki accompanies you during the trek.
You will spot at times high cascading waterfalls. And, you will get to learn about people of different ethnicity, especially Gurung people when visiting the Ghandruk museum. Depending on which route you take, you may not pass through Ghandruk though. The trail is the same from Chomrung onwards but you can choose to include or not include Ghorepani Poon Hill and Ghandruk. Poon hill is a vantage point for the view of Annapurna plus other peaks and for sunrise and sunset. Other highlights of this trek are the hot springs! Very relaxing and healing for your aching muscles. Machhapuchhare Base Camp is another heavenly trail. With breathtaking mountain views including Himchuli, Gangapurna, and the ever-changing Machhapuchhare, which sheer triangular face takes on yet another aspect here. The path finally stumbles across moraines and reaches the world of ice and snow Annapurna sanctuary from where you will see incredible 360-degree views of the Annapurna ranges and above the massive Annapurna glacier. Also, ABC passes through MBC (Machhapuchhre Base Camp). What a blissful moment. Visit two base camps in one trip! Together with Annapurna Circuit, these trails welcome about 70% of the total trekkers visiting Nepal. The Annapurna Sanctuary is a high glacial basin lying forty kilometers directly north of Pokhara Nepal's second city, and concealed within the folds of two great southward projecting ridges of the Annapurna, lies the secret mountain fastness of the Annapurna Sanctuary. So narrow is the gateway to this most spectacular high mountain Amphitheatre, at the head of the Modi Khola and squeezed between the peaks of Hiunchuli and Macchapuchare, that it was not until 1956 that any outsider penetrated its defences. More recently, the Annapurna Sanctuary has become a popular trekking destination, and with good reason - It is easily accessible from Pokhara and offers tremendous potential for scenic walks and for alpine exploration, in a splendid high Himalayan.
The ring of mountains which form the rim of the Annapurna Sanctuary includes no fewer than eight of over 7000 meters, including Annapurna South, Fang, Annapurna 1 (8091 metres), Gangapurna, Annapurna 3 and Annapurna 5. The ring is completed by the peerless Macchapuchare, only 7 metres below the magical 7000 metres. The walk-in to the Sanctuary provides a taste of the great variety of landscape types which serve to make Nepal such a special trekking destination. Starting out at Phedi, we encounter sub-tropical heat, pretty villages and neatly terraced rice fields.
Finally, beyond the last of the bamboo and rhododendron woodland, the valley narrows at the entrance to the world of ice and snow that is the Annapurna Sanctuary. Throughout the walk-in, there are always outstanding panoramas of the high peaks to the north and the contrast of the rice-fields and villages with the snow peaks above, makes for very picturesque trekking indeed. From Poon Hill above Ghorepani the dawn views of Dhaulagiri and nearby Tukuche Peak are legendary.
