Annapurna Base Camp (a trek in sync with ecological beauty at its best)Trekking in the shadows of the AnnapurnaA moderate nature trek to the foot of majestic Mountain Annapurna starts at Phedi, after a drive of about 45 minutes from Pokhara. The trail takes you through fascinating traditional villages of Nepal’s ethnic communities; Gurung, Magar, and Thakali. Care to stop for the conversation and enjoy the hospitality. The trek continues through dense rhododendron forest with towering snowy peaks in the background. The return walk is even more interesting as the trek winds around different ridges towards Ghorepani, where you witness breathtaking views of an early morning sunrise where a red halo seeps through glistening gaps over the snow capped peaks of the Annapurna & Dhaulagiri. The sceneries seen throughout this trek grace the landscape of the Himalayas where imagination defines the beauty of nature as an experience that can never be forgotten.
The Annapurna Base Camp trek will be even more interesting in spring as the whole forest along the trail turns red, pink and white with rhododendron flowers. This wonder trip can be done anytime of the year except during the monsoons [July thru August].
