Annapurna is one of the most popular treks done in Nepal by numerous trekkers around the world. Considered as one of the best view points in the world, Annapurna base Camp has an alluring and tranquil environment along with its beautiful northern settlements. The Annapurna massif is a 55 kms long range consisting of peaks up to 8000m. If you choose to tackle the routes of Annapurna base Camp you will be choosing to walk along the lowland pastures, bamboo and rhododendron forest, alpine scrub and the culturally and artistically rich hillside villages will give you a life changing experience.
