Trip Overview

Trip Overview

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking creates an opportunity to see the effects of sun rises on mountain ranges. From the lush viewpoint, we swallow this serene view till we are satisfied. Sometimes, we are in the dense rhododendron forest, sometimes we are in the bamboo forest, and sometimes we are on the fresh green uphill.

We feel we are the part of this true greenness. When the cascading streams and waterfalls thunder, when the avalanches and landslides are naturally the parts of nature, and when the atmosphere smells mossy, we realize how our city life is different from the Mother Nature. Along with these, above us, we see the mountains, determined to touch the sky and look like the kings of the earth. Please contact us for the final trip quotation.
