Annapurna base camp is one of the most popular, striking and toughest trekking destinations in Nepal. Jaw-dropping sights are absolutely common here. The massif Himalayan chain that comprises the world’s 10th highest peak- Annapurna stands at the height of 8091 meters above sea level (named-Annapurna I Main). The highest access of the trekking is 4130 meter. The journey to its base camp, which is at 4130m/13549ft height, is one of the most popular walks on earth.
This trek consists of diverse terrain, culture, and wildlife to observe. There are more than just the clear mountains or snow through the ABC; you’ll be surrounded by the delightful Gurungs, lush-green plantations, and interesting Himalayan creatures. The reason that makes this journey dangerous is due to unpredictable climatic condition, tough terrain and high altitude. The major attractions of this trek are Ghandruk and Chhomrong village, Annapurna and natural hot spring in Jhinu. You can watch Hawk migration from ABC if you are lucky enough.
