Annapurna Base Camp Trekking
Annapurna base camp trekking is one of the best trekking routes of Nepal. It is also regarded as the classic route which leads us towards the high lands of Annapurna region. The route through the mountain will offers us great view of high summit of the region like Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Hiunchuli, Gangapurna, Machhapuchhre and many more soaring white snow capped mountains. The path to the high lands goes through the terraced lands, forest of rhododendron and some of the beautiful traditional villages.
