Annapurna Base Camp trekking trail goes along with view of beautiful peaks of the giants - Annapurna 1, Glacier Dome, Gangapurna, Fang and the fishtail peak which is called Machapuchare in Nepali Language. Although there is only one entrance to the sanctuary itself, we follow locally known, lesser-used approaches and exit routes on our premier Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

Annapurna Base Camp is encircled by the famous Himalayan peaks – the 'fishtail' spire of Machapuchare (6997m), Gangapurna (7454m), Annapurna 1 (8091m), the unclimbed Fang (7647m) and Annapurna South (7273m). The only approach follows the Modi Khola Valley through forests of oak, rhododendron and bamboo, passing through local Gurung villages to a world of soaring peaks.
