The Annapurna Base Camp Trek is an excellent choice for beginners and experts alike. The hiking trail is dotted with comfortable lodges for the choice of frequent breaks. Trekking through Annapurna Mountains has been compared to being an astronomer in space. The sky appears to bend the snow topped mountains within arm’s reach and the snow glitters like stars. Beautiful waterfalls and historic villages with terraced farmlands accent the pristine landscape. Spectacular rhododendron forests can be seen in full bloom from late march to April.
The Annapurna base camp is situated directly below the 10th largest mountain in the world. Many people visit the base camp exclusively to watch the sun rise, which speaks volumes to how memorizing it is. The trek down from base camp is also filled with enjoyable experiences. Trekkers have the option to stop and rest in Jhinu hot springs. The trek finishes in Pokhara, where there is access to lake front restaurants, gift and supply stores, and message parlors to treat any sore muscles.
