15-Day Trekking Holiday in Nepal: Annapurna Base Camp Trek

The Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) trek, also known as the Annapurna Sanctuary trek, is for trekkers looking for spectacular scenery and a great trekking experience. The Annapurna Base Camp lies at a height of 4,135 meters and is where mountaineers start their summit of Annapurna I, the 10th highest peak in the world at 8,091 meters. The ABC trail traverses a variety of terrain ranging from glacier moraine and rice terraces to rocky stone steps and, along the way, offers an amphitheater of huge Himalayan peaks. In addition to the great scenery, the trek takes you through the villages of the ethnic communities of Gurung and Magar. While this trek can be undertaken all year round, it is especially beautiful during spring as rhododendron flowers along the trail turn red, pink and white. The ABC is a classic trail and is recommended for anyone looking for a great trekking experience!
