Trekking to Annapurna Base Camp - (ABC) - 2015
- Annapurna Base Camp Trekking (ABC) - (2015) -
The Annapurna Base Camp Trek (ABC) is considered a moderate trekking. The final and highest destination is the Annapurna sanctuary, the Base Camp at 4200m. So having little training and skills will make us easier in walking up-hill. Months of January, February, March, April, May, October, November and December are the most favourable months to do trekking in this region.
The Annapuna region is home to local village people with unique cultures and traditions. One of the main trekking routes to Annapurna Base camp starts from Pokhara valley to Nayapul which is just one hour drive away from Pokhara.
