Highlights

Adventure and beauty are two words that sum up the trips in the Annapurna region. These trips explore the Annapurna Himalayas and exciting trails in the Annapurna Conservation Area. As such, the Annapurna Base Camp Budget Trek is one such trip that stretches through Gurung villages. Similarly, the trek also enjoys a surreal company of cultural heritage in the lower Annapurna Mountains. Also, this trek allows you to fully relish the display of natural beauty within a limited amount of budget.

Firstly, the Annapurna Base Camp Trek begins with your arrival in Kathmandu. Here, you explore around the valley and visit some of the UNESCO world heritage sites. Then, you will continue on a drive to head west from the valley. The road trip leads you across the Trishuli River and enjoys the view of Mt. Fish Tail (6993m) as you arrive near Pokhara. After enjoying the beauty of Pokhara, you drive further west to Phedi. This is the official starting point of the trek as heads north to Tolka. As the trek resumes in the company of lush hills, you reach the Gurung village of Chhomrong.

Then, you begin to trek across the banks of the Chhomrong River. The river takes you north and reaches Dovan. Further, you pass the Hinku Cave and settle at the Himalaya village. You continue the trek to the Machhapuchhre Base Camp (4000m) as you enjoy the vista of Mt. Fish Tail (6993m). The trails for the next part of the trek head west and reach the Annapurna Base Camp. The base camp is one of the most famous destinations in the Annapurna region and offers a great panorama of the Annapurna range. After exploring the base camp, you trek south to Jhinu Danda. Here, you can relax at the natural hot springs before heading back to Pokhara followed by Kathmandu.
