Overview

Annapurna Base Camp Trek by Himalayan Forever is a wonderful once-in-a-lifetime experience that takes travelers around the southern rolling green hills of the Annapurna Himalayan range in Nepal. This journey offers the opportunity to explore the traditional mountain villages and the indigenous hill tribes of Western Nepal throughout the trial.

This seven-day trek, which is both somewhat challenging and exciting, provides endless views of stunning, towering mountains covered with snow. One can stay in cozy mountain lodges and explore the local tradition of rural communities in Nepal.

Our trek starts and ends at Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal.  The journey starts after a couple of hours of drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara, the tourism capital of Nepal. Drive to Naya Pul village and start trekking to Chomrong village, situated on a high ridge amidst a beautiful rhododendron forest. This trail passes through Gandruk, a popular sprawling hillside village where you’ll meet plenty of friendly Gurung villagers. Our trek continues as we make our way to Dovan, a little village that offers breathtaking views of the rising sun which reflects on the chains of Himalayan peaks. These peaks are Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Annapurna, and Mt. Manaslu with more. We further hike downhill and then up cross a stream which leads us into dense woods to Modi River. 

Enjoy the morning hike on top Poon Hill for glorious sunrise views reflecting on a chain of Himalayan peaks. Includes the world’s three highest mountain ranges Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Annapurna, and Mt. Manaslu with arrays of peaks.
From Poon Hill and Ghorepani, after a fabulous morning walk continues over rolling hills up and down, through rhododendron forest. Reaching Tadapani, from here our route diverts towards North East, and the trail follows into dense tree lines. 
After a pleasant descent uphill walks, and then on a nice stone paved path to Chomrong. The last permanent village is en route to the Annapurna base camp, the other places further are just temporary settlements. The walk continues from the large Gurung village of Chomrong, the center point for both ways to ABC and back. The trail follows down and then up crossing a stream heading into dense woods to Modi River. 

Our trek goes past the small village of Bamboo, situated on a river gorge, before reaching Dovan and Himalaya Hotel. Walk beneath the southern Annapurna side and Huin Chuli peaks before reaching a flat region at Deurali. Continue to hike alongside the Modi River stream and head towards the Machhapuchare Base Camp, located beneath the towering Machhapuchare Himal. The name Machhapurchare means "Fish-Tail" in Nepali and the Machhapuchare Himal resembles a fish-tail on top. The route now passes through the magnificent Annapurna Sanctuary to reach Annapurna Base Camp.

In the heart of Nepal's vibrant capital, Kathmandu, lies an enchanting trio of cultural and religious landmarks that beckon travelers to embark on an unforgettable journey of sightseeing. Each site—Kathmandu Durbar Square, Pashupati Nath, and Boudha—offers a unique tapestry of history, spirituality, and architectural marvels, making them integral parts of Nepal's rich cultural heritage.

Kathmandu Durbar Square:

Nestled in the ancient city, Kathmandu Durbar Square is a living testament to the country's regal past. This UNESCO World Heritage Site boasts a stunning collection of palaces, courtyards, and temples that date back to the Malla and Shah dynasties. The intricately carved wooden structures, such as the Hanuman Dhoka Palace, Kumari Ghar (the living goddess's abode), and the Taleju Temple, showcase the splendid craftsmanship of Newari artisans. The square's vibrant atmosphere is further enhanced by local vendors, street performers, and the constant hum of daily life.

Pashupati Nath:

A sacred pilgrimage site for Hindus worldwide, Pashupati Nath is a sprawling temple complex dedicated to Lord Shiva. Located on the banks of the Bagmati River, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is not only an architectural marvel but also a spiritual haven. The main temple, with its distinctive pagoda-style architecture and golden spire, is complemented by a series of smaller shrines, ghats, and ashrams. Pilgrims and sadhus, draped in saffron robes, converge here to seek blessings, while the eerie yet serene atmosphere of the nearby Arya Ghat, where cremations take place, adds a profound spiritual dimension to the visit.

Boudhanath Stupa:

Boudha, or Boudhanath Stupa, stands as an iconic symbol of Tibetan Buddhism and is one of the largest stupas in the world. The colossal mandala is adorned with the watchful eyes of the Buddha, overlooking the Kathmandu Valley. Pilgrims and visitors circumambulate the stupa, spinning prayer wheels and chanting mantras, creating a mesmerizing blend of devotion and tranquility. The surrounding streets are lined with vibrant prayer flag shops, monasteries, and Tibetan handicraft stores, making Boudha a hub of spiritual energy and cultural exploration. Individually, each of these sites offers a captivating glimpse into Nepal's past and present, but collectively, they form a trifecta of cultural diversity, religious significance, and architectural brilliance, making a visit to Kathmandu an immersive and enlightening experience.

Amazing Trip to ABC

December 2022 we did the 10-day Annapurna Base Camp trek. We had an amazing trip. Prakash organised it perfectly (from Kathmandu). We meeted with Ram, our guide, the day before we left. Together we took the bus to Pokhara and the next day the trekking started. Ram is a young, fit and friendly guy! He took great care of us during the trekking, the only thing we needed to do was to walk and enjoy. His English is perfect, therefore we had a lot of fun together. In the evenings we played some games, but be careful, he always wins...
