A few places in the world can offer magical and majestic mountain vistas and incredible trekking, and Nepal is one of them. The hidden stronghold of Annapurna Base Camp (also known as Annapurna Sanctuary or ABC)is no exception making it one of the outstanding trekking experiences in Nepal. It is a deep glacier, which gives the effect of an amphitheater surrounded by a ring of impressive high peaks including Hiun Chuli, Annapurna South, Fang, Annapurna l, Ganggapurna, Annapurna III and Machhapuchhre. The trail to this awe-inspiring scene ascends the Annapurna foothills through forested hillsides where we are given a taste of Nepal’s magical and majestic vistas with a spectacular sunrise over the Annapurnas and Dhaulagiri on the world-famous Poon Hill. It continues through scattered Gurung settlements, across terraced fields and abundant forests before climbing gradually into a world of ice and snow - Base Camp, the ‘Sanctuary of the Gods’. Returning to Pokhara by a different route this trek offers truly fascinating scenery, with a combination of picturesque rice fields, villages and a panorama of high peaks.
