OVERVIEW

Highlights of Annapurna Base Camp Trek: Birethanti water fall, Ghorepani- Poon Hill- Sun rise Ghandruk Village, Annapurna Base camp, Hot spring, Chhumrung village, Dhampus Village

Annapurna Base camp trekking is famous for trekkers.The principal peaks of the western portion of the great Annapurna Himal, including Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna, Ganagapurna, Annapurna III and Machhapuchhare, are 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. The middle and upper portions of Modi Khola offer some of the best short trekking routes in Nepal, and the valley is located so that these treks can be easily combined with treks into the Kali Gandaki region to the west.
