Annapurna Base Camp trek, popularly known as ABC Trek is one of the best classic Himalayan treks in the world. The Annapurna Base Camp trek offers a great introduction to rustic mountains and its Himalayan profile. It is among the easy and shorter trek than other high altitude treks in Nepal. This trek incorporates diverse terrain, culture, and wildlife. Along with the most spectacular and close up view of Annapurna range, Machhapuchhre, Hiunchuli, and Dhaulagiri.
Enjoy walking through diverse landscape offering both temperate and alpine climatic zones, highland pastures and barren rocky terrain; endowed by isolated mountain hamlets, temples and monasteries.
