This trek in the Annapurna sanctuary in Nepal is one of the world’s finest treks, taking us through scenic villages, rich oak, bamboo and rhododendron forests and is a great introduction to the joys of high altitude trekking.


We climb steadily through beautiful villages with neatly terraced rice fields enjoying several days of pleasant ridge-walking through a mix of abundant forest and scattered fields, with spectacular views of the majestic Annapurna range throughout. Our journey begins in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. We drive to the road head at Nayapul, beyond Pokhara where we start with a short trek to the village of Birethanti. We stay overnight in comfortable tea houses throughout. We spend the next six days trekking upwards through a series of forested ridges with sharp descents to the rivers between them, until we reach the Machapuchare Base Camp (3700m). From here it is only a short climb further to the Annapurna Base Camp (4130m) our ultimate destination.
