Overview

Introduction:

The Annapurna Base Camp Trek gives you an amazing overview of the diversity in landscape that Annapurna Region has to offer. It is a nice and moderate trek and therefore accessible for almost everyone.

You will also see rhododendron forests and you will walk over glacier rivers and see fabulous waterfalls. There are spectacular views of sheer cliffs with rivers running below them.
