Annapurna Base Camp Trek – Best two weeks plus moderate+ trek in Himalaya
Annapurna trekking is among those few treks in Nepal that combines such a great diversity of landscapes and culture and bring you so close to the foothill of gigantic ice giants in such time period. This trek is the perfect combination of incredible Himalayan visits and cultural diversity. Walking along the cultivated farmlands, cultural villages, magical rhododendron forest and alpine landscapes, ABC trek offers great opportunity to witness the soaring peaks without having altitude problem.
During Annapurna Base Camp Trip, we stay at local-owned teahouse which allows us to interact with local and understand their culture and lifestyle closely. The ethnic group of Magar and Gurung are the major inhabitant of the region; they are well-known for their bravery in Gurkha Battalion.
Nepal Annapurna Base Camp trek commences at Nayapul: one and half hour drive north from main city of Pohara. We start the trek with ascend to Ghorepani and further make a pre-dawn hike to the Poon Hill for mesmerizing sunrise view. Here we enjoy the view of fifth highest mountain, Dhaulagiri soaring high in skyline and Annapurna south and Machhapuchhre standing in front of us. The view from Poon Hill is one of the best part of Annapurna treks. Hiking to Poon hill is also the best way to acclimatize at higher altitude before starting a trip to Annapurna Base Camp.
Next, we climb higher through the narrow gorge of glacial Modi Khola valley, carrying the melt of water from the peak above. We walk through the forested route of oak, rhododendron and bamboo. The real climax starts in stunning Annapurna Sanctuary where we follow the base camp of Machhapucchre to reach ABC (4,130m). Here you will find yourself amidst of immense wall of rock and ice reaching the height of 4,000m above the U-shaped valley. We make returning journey via JhinuDanda and soothe at natural hot spring to relax our tired muscles.
The teahouses along the Annapurna BC trekking region are comfortable and offer extensive menu from typical Nepali Dahl Baat (rice with lentil), Indian, continental and more. How shower are readily available at maximum teahouses.

Satori Adventures and Expedition aims at giving proper information to many travelers, trekkers and climbers who have some confusion regarding the booking process of the trip in Nepal. Satori Adventures therefore desires to provide guideline for the first-time visitors or travelers so that they can comfortably start the process to book the selected package legally. Before starting the booking process we always advise our trekkers, travelers and climbers to intelligently check whether the company is genuine and whether they are fully safe to travel in the company’s guidance. We ask them to be acquainted with the company they want book their holiday trip with. Is the company genuine and authorized from Government of Nepal, Office of the Company Registrar, Department of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Nepal Rastra Bank ‒Central Bank of Nepal (authorized for foreign currency), Permanent Account Number (PAN), and the Department of Cottage & Small Industries). Are they financially secured and environmentally conscious? We advise them to make sure about these formalities because there are some companies in Nepal that have been running business without abiding by the rules and regulation of the Government. Some companies were once registered but by now their licenses have already been expired and yet they have providing the services illegally.
On many occasions, Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal have found that many foreigners’ tour operators, NGOs and INGOs have been involved in directly operating tours, trekking, and mountaineering holiday adventures without having government license and abiding by the Government rules. It has been also found that many individuals, freelance guides and porters have been arranging trips illegally by creating their own personal website. We have observed that many trekkers and climbers face a host of problems once they arrive in Kathmandu as they lack adequate information. Many of them file complaints to Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal for legal action such as the refund of the advanced payment. There is hardly any justice given to the cheated clients. Thus, so as to prevent all these probable problems we request our travelers to check the company before booking any trip to the Himalayas.
