“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” – John Muir
The Annapurna Base Camp Trek brings you to the base of Mt. Annapurna (8091m)-the world's tenth highest peak, and the trek to its base camp is one of the most exciting treks on the planet. The Annapurna Base Camp Trek is one of the rare treks that combine so many distinct scenery and bring you so close to the base of 7,000 and 8,000 meter high peaks in such a short amount of time.
Annapurna Base Camp walk begins in Pokhara, popularly known as the "City of Lakes" and a city of natural beauty, as do all other treks in the vicinity. Before reaching the base of the great Annapurna Himalaya, the trail to Annapurna Base Camp passes past cascading waterfalls, picturesque towns, terraced rice fields, rich rhododendron woods, and breathtaking mountain panoramas. Our 10 day Annapurna Base Camp Trek plan is ideal for trekkers who want to trek to Annapurna's base camp while taking it easy and allowing enough time to adjust to prevent experiencing Acute Mountain Sickness. Depending on your itinerary and trekking days, the Annapurna Base Camp Trek can take anywhere from 6 to 8 days to reach your desired destination. The itinerary is a 10-day package that begins in Nayapul, a one-and-a-half-hour drive from Pokhara, and continues north to Ghorepani and the well-known viewpoint of Poon Hill. From Ghorepani, travel east to Chumrung, then north into the Modi Kola Valley, passing via Machhapuchhre Base Camp at an elevation of 3700 meters above sea level.
Many other hikers only walk the circuit of Nayaul – Ghorepani – Ghandruk – Nayapul, or go on to Landruk – Tolka – Australian Camp or Dhampus, and conclude the trek at Phedi. This trek is known as the Gorepani Poon-Hill Trek, and it is quite rewarding in and of itself. This trek is also suitable for families with children. You can return to Annapurna Base Camp via Jhinu Danda and relax your tired body in the lovely hot springs for a natural hot spa. Depending on your travel itinerary, it is also worthwhile to visit one of the Gurung villages of Ghandruk or Landruk upon your return.

From beginning to end, Mountainmate trek & tour was accommodating and professional, and I could recommend them more. They will go above and above to meet your individual needs if you want to trek in the area. A special thank you to Rajan, who was an excellent guide. He was attentive, knowledgeable, courteous, and sociable—everything we could ask for in a tour guide. He added to our enjoyment of the 10 days and his contagious love of the mountains took the trip to a whole new level.
With the help of Mountainmate Trek & Tour and our excellent guide, Bhujel, me and my younger sister had a wonderful experience traveling through Nepal and seeing the Himalayas. We heartily recommend going on a trek with this company. Manager Giri was always incredibly accommodating and answered all of our queries. When discussing the costs, he was quite reasonable. They were available to assist us if we needed it.
It was an incredible experience for me and my buddies to trek in the Annapurna sanctuary with Mountainmate Trek & Tour-Nepal. Since we first contacted him, Mr. Mahesh Giri has been extremely responsive and helpful in providing thoughtful advice. We had a terrific experience in the Annapurna region thanks to our guide Raj and porter Pandey, who were both incredibly nice and knowledgeable. Without a doubt, I'd tell to go with MountainMate.
From beginning to conclusion, it was a delight to trip with MountainMate Trek & Tour. We two travelers spent the entire month in Nepal and experienced a variety of things. It was so easy to plan. In contrast to how my partner usually does it, we chose to use an agency for the treks we wanted to take because we were so busy in the months leading up to the trip. We spoke with Giri frequently in the month before the trip to organize the treks. He fulfilled our requests once we informed him what we wanted. When Giri and I first met in Kathmandu, he went through the schedule and broke down the costs for the treks and for the accommodations.When it came to pricing, he was incredibly open and precise. At all times, we were aware of the cost of everything.
