Annapurna base camp

Region

Annapurna 

Trip Summary

Trek to the Base Camp of Mt. Annapurna (8091m), the 10th highest mountain in the world! This route really does have it all: geographic diversity, rich cultural experiences, and of course some truly breath-taking mountain vistas. You will pass through lush rhododendron forest and picturesque farming villages, before coming face-to-face with the awesome Mt Annapurna. Some of the many highlights include a morning ascent of Poon Hill to watch sunrise, and relaxing weary muscles in the Jhinu Danda hot springs on your return.  You will stay each night in local teahouses, where friendly hosts are happy to chat and give you an insight into village life in this remote region. The Annapurna Base Camp trek is a great option for those wishing to experience all that trekking in the Himalayas has to offer.

Testimonials

"After two treks with a guide from Pokhara Mountain Tiger, I can highly recommend the services of Neema and his agency. My guide/porter was extremely trustworthy and friendly... They were quick and competent to answer my messages. Neema organised my trekking permits and the flight from Pokhara to Jomsom as well. Everything was perfect and very friendly."

In 2007, I trekked the full Annapurna Circuit. Neema was my guide, porter, translator, cultural interpreter, and friend. Trekking with Neema was a delight. Neema’s knowledge of the trails was invaluable. I highly recommend him to take care of youl. He is friendly, funny, and super experienced. Have a great trek!
