Annapurna Base Camp (Annapurna Base Camp Trek), Annapurna, Nepal. The Annapurna Base Camp is the most lovely, offering perspectives of a portion of the world’s most elevated mountains including Annapurna I (the world’s 10th highest at 8,091 m). The trekking affords great knowledge into the Nepalese mountain way of life, ethnic differences, as well as a moderate expedition in the Himalayas. The whole encompassing territory of the Annapurna area is protected by the Annapurna Conservation Area Project inside a 7,639 square kilometer range. This is the first and biggest conservation territory in Nepal.

The trek begins from the Lake City of Pokhara, Nepal and winds through rich, subtropical forests and conventional cultivating fields. Each edge yields a Himalayan scene, with peaks like Annapurna South, Fishtail and Himchuli taking off above. To achieve Annapurna Base camp, hikers have to follow a trial of terraced terrains, thick delightful woods of rhododendron, conventional Gurung towns, etc. The 2-week (15-16 days) Annapurna Base Camp trek could be possible any time of the year with the exception of amid the rainstorm.
