9 days Nepal Annapurna Base Camp trek is known for its distinctive and incomparable view of the Himalayas and dramatic glaciers and is a short introduction to trekking in Nepal, which will showcase the picturesque beauty of the world-famous Annapurna region. This is the only trek that will take you to the base camp of such high mountains, in a relatively short time, the trek is not considered to be a difficult one, anybody with average physical fitness can complete and enjoy the adventure of this holiday.  

The trek is mostly an uphill walk, passing through river valleys and rice terraces, dense forests of rhododendron and magnolia and an abundance of waterfalls along the route to enjoy. On the fifth day of our trek, we reach the base camp of the Machhapuchhre also known as the Fishtail, for its unique peak, which overlooks the entire Pokhara valley. On the sixth day, we will arrive at the base camp of Annapurna South, a view that will never be forgotten, with 13 mountains reaching over 7,000m in the Annapurna region. On the way back to Pokhara, the undulating farm terraces and the culturally rich beautiful hill villages and its friendly inhabitants will be an immersive and cultural experience that will show you a way of living that is phenomenally rich in tradition.

Pokhara is one of the most picturesque places in Nepal, with refreshing lakes, and unbelievable views of the snow-capped mountains overlooking the entire city.
