Become acquainted with one of the most famous mountains in the world: Annapurna. With Incredible Himlayan Sherpa Adventure, you will experience the stunning Annapurna massif as well as the remarkable hospitality of the locals. Embark on of the most popular treks in Nepal and discover what Nepal has to offer.

Thanks to the popularity, the trail is very well developed, offers comfortable accommodation and warm hospitality of different ethnic groups. We designed the Annapurna Base Camp Trek for 14 Days with those in mind who want to see the Annapurna Base Camp and the Machhapuchare Base Camp.The itinierary is very flexible and can be extended as you wish. There are many worthwhile destinations close-by that can enhance your trekking adventure. We have guides specialized on this trip with extensive local knowledge. As with all our trips, they are happy to introduce you to the local culture and customs.

The Annapurna conservation area is the largest protected area in the country. The trail leads you through this unqiue eco system and our guides will highlight many of its stunning features.

The trail is centred around the famous Annapurna I (8091m) which is 10th highest peak in the world and the first 8000m peak to be climbed. The base camp itself is located near Annapurna South, with a perfect view of Annapurna and Mount Fishtail. Other stunning views include the famous Poonh Hill and impressions of the Dhaulagiri ranges to the north. Beyond the landscape, the conservation area also offers a remarkable range of wildlife, flora and fauna – an unforgettable experience of the Himalayan ecosystems.

A little highlight after the tiring trek: the trail reverts down to the valley to the Jhinu hot springs where you can enjoy a hot, relaxing bath to reflect on the journey.

Useful Information

Your Meals During the Trek

During long treks, good nutrition is very important. Beyond the practical aspects, delicious food enhances every holiday. At Incredible Himalayan Sherpa Adventures, we make sure you experience high quality, locally sourced dishes. While most guest houses offer a wide variety of food, we highly recommend the local options which are freshly prepared from locally farmed produce. Popular dishes include Tsampak (the roasted flour of ground barley) with butter and the salted Tibetan tea, Sengong (paste of buckwheat flour with hot water) with Himalaya Nettle or garlic soup which can be very invigorating after a long day. And for your carbs, some boiled chilly potatoes – if you can stand the heat. Please inform us of special dietary needs but keep in mind that the trek leads through remote areas and it will not always be possible to meet specific requirements. In this case you might have to bring suitable meals instead.
