Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Annapurna Base Camp Trek

22Aug

Annapurna base camp trek is one of the beautiful treks in Annapurna area. The fabulous mountain scenery & the rich cultural diversity traverses across a wide spectrum of lush rural farmlands and pretty villages where we see the local women folk humming romantic tunes while on their daily chores & cows with vermilion splattered foreheads that seem to be smiling at you in a hearty welcome to their home turf; the trail heads towards a deep gorge that slices between 2 peaks – Mt. Hiunchuli & the famous sacred Machhapuchre peak [fishtail] as we head through dense bamboo and rhododendron forest by the narrow Modi Khola [river] valley & the landscapes we witness on the way warm our beating hearts.

Machhapuchhere view to Annapurna Sanctuary Trek.Our trail finally comes to the Annapurna base camp sanctuary with its enormous walled mountain fortress. Annapurna base camp was first discovered by the British explorer Col. James O.M. ‘Jimmy’ Roberts in the year 1956 and shown to the world as the ‘Sanctuary of Gods’. The Sanctuary then became the “Annapurna Sanctuary”. The prime peaks of the western portion of the great Annapurna Himal, including Hiunchuli (6,441m), Annapurna South (7279m), Fang, Annapurna I (8091m), Ganagapurna (7485m), Annapurna III (7855m) and Machapuchhare (6993m), are geographically placed accurately in a circle about 10 miles in diameter with a deep glacier covered amphitheater in the center. This wonderful trek explores diverse ethnic groups and their interesting cultures, the local communities found here are Gurung, Magar, Thakali and we are warmly welcomed by these local tribes; blended with this is a glimpse of beautiful flora and fauna found in this area.
