Description of Annapurna base camp trek in Nepal

This trek to Annapurna Base Camp combines breathtaking mountain scenery and the chance to learn about Nepalese life and culture. Trek for nine days, for a maximum of seven hours, following local trails that wind through forests, villages and farmland terraces cut into the hillside, with wonderful mountain scenery at every stage.

Begin by trekking beside the Modi River, through rhododendron and bamboo forests, before reaching Hinku Cave, where the vegetation thins out and the gorge becomes just a few hundred meters wide. The huge mountains Hiunchuli and Machhapuchhre form the entrance to the Annapurana Sanctuary, a vast mountain amphitheatre with snowy peaks rearing up on ll sides.

This holiday starts and ends in Kathmandu, and departs every week, with the actual trekking beginning in Nayapul. It is a small group trip, with a maximum of 15 people, lead by a local, knowledgeable guide and supported by porters. We can also arrange private treks at any time. There is the option to tailor this trek, too, incorporating it with the Annapurna Circuit or the Jomsom-Miktinath trek, by trekking from Tatopani to Ghorepani and then to Tadapani, before joining the main Sanctuary trails at Chommrong.

The best time to trek to Annaurna Base Camp is February to May and September to December.

Responsible tourism: Annapurna base camp trek in Nepal

Environment

Environment has always been our major concern. We try our best to implement the policy of environmental conservation on every service and tour. Our main direction is to provide first class adventure and holiday experience in the Himalayas, all in a SUSTAINABLE and RESPONSIBLE manner.

We operate as such that the journeys ensure benefits to the local people and their surrounding as much as possible and any potential negative impacts at the destinations are minimized. At office, we encourage the staff to run the electrical appliances only when needed and also to control their usage. Besides, we work in accordance with ĎThink before you printí.

We have also conducted various plantation and river cleansing campaigns, in order to contribute to environmental conservation. To mark our seventh glorious anniversary, we organized Bagmati River Cleansing Program too. We want to do as much as possible for protecting the Mother Nature by our operations, special activities and awareness.

Community

All our staff are from local communities. Our guides are English speaking and have years of experience as they live locally, displaying a wealth of knowledge in the Annapurna Region with local people and customs. Each guide comes fully equipped and supported by us, having obtained the training in the related tourism sectors including Ministry of Tourism in Nepal, High Altitude First Aid and Environmental issues for Nepal.


We are dedicated to giving something back to the local community the Sambhav Nepal Foundation is a registered Nepalese charity we are associated with. With the foundation our aim is to offer English medium schooling and health services for a remote isolated region of Gorkha.
