Annapurna Base Camp trekking is all about the journey to Base Camp, but taking a more adventures approach to it! Traversing pass ridges, slippery trails, and resting near waterfalls makes this trek in Nepal even more special! With a flight or drive to Pokhara depending on your booking choice the journey begins. For those who went by flight in Pokhara there is lots to do an interesting point is Fewa Lake located next to the city! For more options on all activities in Pokhara please inquire to the Rediscover Nepal team during your booking. From Pokhara a vehicle takes you to Nayapul from where the adventure trek commences. Trekking to Tikhedunga is a good way to get used to the landscape and it’s not long before you see those fable like rice field terraces and gentle streams resting on green hills. From Tikhedunga it goes up to Ghorepani and real adventurists that reach in time can see a spectacular sunset in the evening. A great way to start this adventure in the Annapurna Himalayas! 
In the morning a hike up to Poon Hill lets us see a stunning sunrise over the Annapurna Range, the perfect start for a good day. Heading down and up to Tadapani and even further to Chhomrong is a great adventure in itself. Crossing streams on wooden bridges, seeing natural waterfalls and hearing nature is just perfect to keep yourself going. An interesting place is the Himalayan Hotel where our route passes. From here great views can be seen of the Nepalese landscape and waterfalls! The next day the Annapurna Base Camp Trek altitude will reach a big highlight!  Our Rediscover Nepal trekking team will make sure to watch out for nay AMS. As we head to Base Camp on a height of 4130 meters the green trail disappears and we head in more rocky types. Depending on the season that you do the Annapurna Base Camp Trek, the snow covered landscape can give a truly magical feeling! After leaving Base Camp behind the trail becomes more adventures as we head most of the time downwards, the views change in this new perspective. Staying in Bamboo village, secluded deep within an amazing bamboo forest and stopping at Jhinu Danda for a quick dip in the hot springs is making going down absolutely worth it! 

Some Annapurna base camp trek tips!
This trek is also called the Annapurna Base Camp Trek 10 days, as there are only 10 days of actual trekking. Trekking to the Annapurna Base Camp can be challenging for novice trekkers as some parts of trek are steep and long climbs. But due to the lower altitude a direct chance of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is not likely to happen. The trails go mostly through forests, green valleys and ridges from where amazing views can be seen, but after the rainy season it’s common to encounter leeches. Always where long socks and cover your legs to avoid these critters, bringing salt might also do wonders to keep them away! During an emergency our professional Guides are there to assist you in any way! 
Take the adventure of a life time, enjoy culture, exiting trails and amazing views! The Annapurna Base Camp Trek, in Nepal is it for those who want just that extra special adventure!
