Views of some of the world's highest mountainsAccommodations:
This challenging trek is one of the most popular in Nepal and for good reason!
Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) is surrounded by a cirque of awe-inspiring peaks, including the awesome south face of Annapurna I (8,091m), in a natural amphitheatre which is quite simply mind-blowing. Our trek starts from Pokhara with a short drive to the road head. A short diversion up to Poon Hill (3,190m) offers us a chance to obtain great views of Himalayan giant - Dhaulagiri (8,167m). The sunrise views from here are legendary.
As we climb through ancient oak and rhododendron forest, across sparkling streams and past waterfalls, the world of snow and ice starts to unfold above us. This combination of pretty villages and terraced fields of millet and rice, coupled by the majestic splendor of Machapuchare (6,993m), Annapurna I and Himchuli (6,441m) make this an extremely rewarding trek. Climbing up the Modhi Khola valley towards the sanctuary, we are teased with views of towering peaks and dizzyingly high rock walls with waterfalls tumbling down into the roar of the river below.
We ascend to Machapuchare Base Camp (3,700m) on the lateral moraine of Annapurana South glacier. The steady climb up to ABC reveals the full splendor of this natural amphitheatre. When we reach our destination, we are spoiled with a 360-degree views of Himalayan peaks, the 'Throne of the Mountain Gods'.
We stay in local Inns and lodges while traveling by foot through this remarkable region. Meals will be taken at the lodges we stay at, or on the trail each day. This trip is a photographers dream with snow capped peaks, diverse architecture, and rich cultural sights.
This adventure is well suited for anyone in good physical condition and a sense of adventure. If Nepal has been on your list of places to visit, now is the time. Join us for this amazing women's trekking adventure!
