Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Annapurna Sanctuary Trek is most popularly known as Annapurna Base camp Trek. It is intensely short trek in Annapurna Conservation area. The trek trial leads to the heart of the Annapurna range where you can have the 360 degree view of magnificent Mountains of Annapurna range. The trek starts from Pokhara and the maximum elevation point of this trek is 4100 meters at Annapurna Base camp. Annapurna I have been restricted for climbing and therefore, the term base camp is merely an old term. Thus, presently this trek is known as Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. This trek trail also leads to the Machhapuchre Base camp (Note: Machhapuchre is also banned for climbing). The trial of this trek ascends and descends providing you with the improving views of the gigantic mountains as you progress forward.
