Annapurna is one of the richest cultural and geographical regions in Nepal. Annapurna Base Camp, located at the foot of Annapurna I, boasts ethnic lifestyle, comfortable tea-houses and magnificent sceneries. Annapurna I is the 10th highest mountain in the world.

Chitwan National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in Southern Nepal. It is the first national park of Nepal, established in 1973, and also one of the most popular destinations for Eco-tourists and wildlife enthusiasts. It is home to the most endangered species of animal, Royal Bengal tiger, and protected species of One-horned rhinos. The trip to Chitwan will follow after you complete your trek to Annapurna.

The trek begins from Nayapul, on the outskirts of Pokhara. The trail ascends to Ghandruk, one of the major stops. It’s popular for its Gurung inhabitants and ethnic village lifestyle. From here, the trail may ascend as well as descend hundreds of meters, hence offering a challenging trek experience. Chhomrong village en route is a sight to see, along with the Machhapucchre Base Camp. The early morning hike takes you to the Annapurna Base Camp and offers one of the best sceneries in Nepal.

Annapurna Conservation Area (ACAP), Jungle Safari inside Chitwan National Park and the tour of ethnic villages are the highlights of this trip. You must be prepared to endure the sheer warmth of the southern basins during this trip.

Testimonials

Annapurna is the best place on Earth. The route and scenery are breath-taking. The way leading from Machhapuchhre to Annapurna base camp is the best.

I had fun with my friends. The guide is the best! He helped us throughout the trip. I’d suggest you to take Diamox to help prevent altitude sickness. It’s really hard to breath when you reach at the top. All in all a great experience. ~Jessica Mahut (Florida, USA)
