Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Join us on one of the most astonishing Himalayan trekking routes

The journey involves trekking deep into the inner sanctum of the Annapurnas. Along the trek, there are endless views of the snowcapped mountain peaks including Dhaulagiri, Hiunchuli, Machhapuchhre and many more! The trek also features a visit to Ghorepani and a hike to the Poon Hill viewpoint. Upon the arrival of Annapurna Base Camp you will be blown away by the breathtaking view of the Annapurna summit.

 

This trek begins with a short 30 minute flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara, a lakeside city with plenty of activities and opportunities to relax. The next day you will embark on a short drive to Hille where you will meet the trekking staff and begin the trek. From here we hike through many villages and settlements including; Ulleri, Ghorepani, Chuile, Lower Sinuwa and Himalaya. Each settlement features mountain lodges where we stay and eat local or western food. As well as villages, you will also trek through exotic forests, terraced rice fields, astonishing ridges and a brief encounter with snow.

 

Before arriving at Annapurna Base Camp we spend one night at Macchapuchere base camp. This is a grassy moraine area which also has phenomena views. The 7th day of trekking is probably one of the most breathtaking as we reach Annapurna Base Camp. Surrounded by enormous peaks, you cannot help but feel a great sense of achievement.

Why pick Colombia?

Colombia is one of the few countries in the world where it is possible to move from one environment to another very quickly. You could be surfing in the Caribbean sea in the morning and hiking up Jungle mountains in the afternoon. 

It is a country that is still undiscovered by mass tourism but that is starting to change so get there while it still has its natural beauty and charm.
