Trip Information
Annapurna Base Camp shows you the whole mountain ranges that are magnificent, colossal, and snow-capped that are against the blue sky. Here, the air is pure and a trekker thrives in front of this awe-inspiring mountain ranges. At the base camp, such a unique condition is created by the mountains that you are intimately connected to them. You only see a panoramic and picturesque view of Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Annapurna South, Tent Peak, Hiunchuli, Gangapurna, and Annapurna South. Their beauty is indescribable, they draw your attention, and the only thing that you can do is to take their photos with your camera as much as you like and as far as you can reach to the corners of the base camp.
Annapurna Base Camp Trek begins from Tikhedunga a starting point, and from here, you cover a large distance of stone steps up to Ulleri. Sweating, blowing out air and absorbing the beautiful landscapes of the Annapurna region from mountains to hills to villages to lush forest to waterfalls, you head off to Annapurna Base Camp. Walking further leads to the emergence of a region which is made of the uphill trail, steel suspension bridges, fewer vegetation areas, densely forested areas, beautiful oak forest, and frequent bamboo forest, including the largest rhododendron forest of Nepal. In addition to these, after a decent hike from Ghorepani, you will reach Poonhill, which affords a brilliant, amazing, and beautiful view of both Dhaulagiri Ranges and Annapurna Ranges. You will also see Fishtail Mountain, as well as, the mountain ranges bathing in sunlight.
Off all the villages that the trail of Annapurna Base Camp Trek takes you to, Sinuwa village is calm, peaceful, and scenic. Its background mountains include Fishtail and Gangapurna. We know trekking is tiring, and we also know that trekking offers breathtaking views; therefore, we all want you to rest overnight at Jhinu Danda, By walking 20 mins downhill from Jhinu Danda, you will reach Jhinu Hot Spring, which will boost your tired body for the last trekking day of Annapurna Base Camp.
