About Trip:

Second only to Everest in terms of popularity for base camp treks, the Annapurna Base Camp trek offers a stunning amphitheater of soaring peaks at its destination that many aficionados consider at least on a par with the Khumbu outlook towards the looming massif of Everest and Lhotse. With Annapurna I standing supreme at a height of 8091m, and buttressed by its sister peaks as well as Hiunchuli and Machhapuchhre, the range presents one of the most dramatic and sweeping vistas in all of the Himalayas. 

With a cultivated patchwork of wheat fields and terraced rice paddies carved out of the precipitous mountain sides on the one hand, a pristine and verdant landscape of rhododendron forests, myriad waterfalls, and countless scenic outlooks on the other, the Annapurna Base Camp trek manages to neatly serve the needs of a diverse body of trekking enthusiasts thanks to the relative ease of the journey. Solo travelers male or female, adventurous friends grouped together, families with young children, complete novice or trail-hardened expert — the trek caters to them all.

Armed with the appropriate permits our trek commences at the beautiful lake city of Pokhara, from where we head out on the 1.5 hour drive to Nayapul. From there we set out on a picturesque hike through lush jungles and Gurung villages towards Ghorepani and the nearby outlook of Poon Hill, famous throughout the world for offering up one of the most glorious panoramic views of the Himalayas.

After Poon Hill we gradually hike towards Annapurna base camp at an altitude of 4130m, where we stand humbled before the natural altar of the massive peaks ranged around and above us. You want perspective? This is it.

The return journey offers a different and refreshing experience and along the way we’ll have the opportunity to avail ourselves of the invigorating hot springs at Jhinu Danda before making our way back to Pokhara.

So if you’re up for a scenically spectacular and culturally diverse trekking experience that’s relatively easy and suitable to all ages, get in touch with us and see what we can arrange for this fascinating journey. We think you’ll love it.

Amazing trip with an amazing guide

Rating:  

Two friends and I were doing the Annapurna Base Camp trek and from home we were recommended to trek with Rabin. We talked a lot with Rabin over e-mail before we actually went to Nepal, and he was more than willing to answer all of our questions and to give us the information that we needed. When we arrived in Kathmandu airport Rabin were there to pick us up, and he took us to a nice hotel in the city. During the trek Rabin has been extremely helpful whenever we needed something or asked for something, patient, funny, and good at telling us about the trek we were doing. I don't think that we could ever have wished for a better guide than Rabin, and we miss him now that we don't see him every day. Later on we did a shorter (3 days) trek in the Kathmandu Valley with another guide named Bhoj. Bhoj was also a very talented guide, and like Rabin, very good at English. Bhoj knew a lot about all the nature that we walked past, and he was good at making us try some locale wine and fruits while doing the trek. All in all we had an amazing experience with Nepal Trekking Experts, and I would definitely recommend them!

Wonderfull trek with an awesome guide!

Rating:  

I've been on Annapurna Base Camp trek with two of my friends from Denmark. We booked our trip by Nepal Trekking Experts, and had Rabin as guide - it was nothing less than amazing. Rabin knows ALOT of everything, and he can always tell something about the nature or generel Nepal facts. He is never intrusive, and stays 'in the background' when we are eating and relaxing. But if we want him to join the meal or a game of cards, he's always ready and is very pleasant to be in company with. He can also teach you a very funny cardgame! We played it the rest of our trip. I will give the very best recommendations to the company and especially to Rabin - and I will definitely book my next trip through Nepal Trekking Experts!!

Excellent local guides with a lot of experience

Rating:  

My husband & my sister who lives in France used Raj's expertise to plan an amazing trip in the Annapurna region. We did a first trek to Annapurna Base Camp and then we went up to Muktinath-Jomsom on the Annapurna Circuit. Our guide Sudarson & our porters were exceptional: they know the tea houses with the best food and best views. Thank you for taking good care of us. Hoping to go back to Nepal sometime soon...
