Annapurna Base Camp Trekking plus Chitwan Safari

Annapurna Base CampTrekking

Annapurna Base Camp 4130m /13550FT is named by Mt Annapurnas especially base camp of Annapurna which is north-center of Nepal. Trekking in Annapurna Base Camp is not only Nepal's but one of the worlds' most popular moderate trekking. The dramatic mountain scenery is one of the reasons for doing Annapurna Base Camp treks. Standing in the middle of the sanctuary, surrounding by towering snowy peaks, ranging from 5000m to 8091m 1665000ft to 26000ft, is a truly awe-inspiring experience.

The Base Camp trekking is a well-known trekking route pass through Pun Hill, possibly the most spectacular mountain scrapes on Earth. When the sun rises, it touches the snow-capped summits the Himalayan giants, Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Annapurna (8,091m) along with a maze of other peaks, there gradually appear, just like magic that your eye could not believe it.

On the way to base camp routes are little in the cultural interest since all accommodation is purely for trekkers but the views once you reach Annapurna Base camp are compensation enough. Altitude sickness and snowfall are factors to consider on the south base camp trek. The route above Chhomrung is subjected to occasional avalanches, and it was recorded five trekkers perished in an avalanche in 2001 above the hut of Deurali. During the April to early December the sanctuary is generally snowing free so that no risk for avalanches for trekking.
