Annapurna Base Camp Trek
Annapurna is the 10th highest peak in the world. It was the first 8000 metre peak ever summitted, in June 1950 by a French expedition led by Maurice Herzog. The tale of this epic climb is told in one of the most fascinating narrations of mountaineering adventure in the book 'Annapurna', also written by Maurice Herzog. Our trek to Annapurna Base Camp is by comparison a far more tame proposition. However the big mountain views are still the same, as we ascend through villages and terraced farmland to the alpine environments found at the higher elevations around base camp. This is a stunning trek in the heart of the Annapurna range.

Fantastic tour to Annapurna Base Camp. Beautiful trek, spectacular views, delightful locals. Well organised and excellent meals. Well informed guides who ensured our comfort and safety needs were met.
Need to be open minded and expect a physical challenge in the Himalayas. Excellent service from all support staff on the trek. Couldn't fault the support staff- cook, porters and Sherpas. Everyone
remained cheerful and co-operative at all times. Felt like one big family. Special thanks to our guide Keshan, Sherpas Tula & Krishna. Tika our cook who provided 3 wonderful meals daily and the amazing porters who carried our luggage in good spirits.
