About Annapurna Base Camp Trek-12 Days

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is accompanied by the Modi River alongside and luxuriant rhododendron forests and bamboo bushes. As soon as we head out from Nayapul, which is the starting point of Annapurna Base Camp Trek, you feel saturated by the nature and an unidentifiable calm in your heart and soul. Not only do you get to know nature in person but you are going to have the opportunity of talking to the native residents along the way who are known for their hospitality and warmth. The Gurung, Thakali and Magar communities have one of the most special and unique cultures in the country. It is a one-of-a-kind experience to be one of them for a while and rejoice their hospitality. Annapurna Base Camp Trek starts with the river bank of the Modi River and keeps changing the settings as you ascend uphill, it transforms its natural landscapes from the river bank to the thick forests and from lush green grazing lands to the paddy field. Annapurna Base Camp Trek begins to raise the adrenaline level when these natural settings bid farewell and the giants themselves get down on the floor to check on you. Within a few hours of trek, which is nothing less than fun and pleasure, you arrive at Birethanti. You can stop by at one of the restaurants and spend some time sipping at your cups of local tea and coffee before you move ahead. By the time you call it a day, you will already have been captivated by nature and the unprecedented moments you have earned yourself on the very first day of Annapurna Base Camp Trek. That is not even the best part. There is more to come and more than you have expected. On your way up, you can find the mountains like Annapurna watching you stepping 3000 stairs of Ulleri. Beautiful mountains all around and serene nature everywhere, it does not get any better than this. It can be almost unbelievable to get back home without a scratch and not even feeling fatigued after you have spent some days of your life at the most beautiful trail in the world. It feels unreal and you feel like there is nothing more you could bargain for when you see the colorful rhododendron blossoming along the trek, nine species of rhododendron, to be specific. If that is not enough, this region is sheltered to 100 species of mammals, 60 reptiles and amphibians and more than 450 species of different birds.
