Tour Details

This unique trek in the foothills of Annapurna South offers you an experience of the high Himalayas without the difficulties of life at extreme altitudes. The trek can be enjoyed as a gentle walk into the heart of the mountains, offering breathtaking views of Annapurna and the surrounding snow-capped peaks. On the way, you will encounter several ascents and descents, but these are not too challenging for the inexperienced walker and there are several alternative trails that eventually meet at the Gurung village of Chhomorong, the gateway to Annapurna Base Camp.

The Annapurna Sanctuary is a vast natural amphitheater surrounded by the high peaks of Annapurna 1, Gangapurna, Glacier Dome, Fang and Machhapuchhare. Several of these peaks rise above 7000m. The trek takes you through a landscape of bamboo and rhododendron forests, mountain villages, terraced hillsides and river valleys, to the open country above the tree line. Here the trail leads across rocky slopes and high moorland, offering continuously changing views of the peaks and high valleys leading up to the Sanctuary, where the trek ends, surrounded by the magnificent, soaring peaks of some of the highest mountains in the Himalayas.

On the Annapurna Sanctuary trek, you will experience the thrill of trekking in the high Himalayas and seeing some fascinating glimpses of the rich Nepalese culture in the villages on route. Arriving at Pokhara airport, you will be picked up by your guide, who will drive you up to the village of Nayapul where the trail begins. The first part of the trek takes you along the banks of the Modi Khola to the village of Birethanti, then along Bhurungdi Khola and up the valley to your first stopping point at Tikhedhunga. After a welcome night’s rest in the guest house, the trail continues its gradual ascent, with overnight stays at Ghorepani, Tadapani, Chhomorung, Dovan and Deurali. One of the high points of the trip is the excursion to Poon Hill on day four. From here you will enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri—rising majestically through the clouds or tinged with gold in the early morning sun.

Dear Tilak!

Thank you so much for organizing the most wonderful trek in the world!

We had the best time, tanks to our thoughtful, kind, professional and funny guide, Narayan, and our porter, Kapil, who was just as funny, lively, professional and a joy to be around. Those two made our trek an experience we’ll never forget and it’s thanks to them we can (in the words of Michal Jackson) say “A.B.C, it’s easy as 1 2 3”. Namely, we climbed all the stairs from Birethanti to Annapurna Base Camp, and on the way we saw the most breathtaking sunrises and magnificent mountains we’ve ever laid eyes on.
One might believe that at least once during a one and a half week long trek you’ll get a bit sick of walking, tired of your company, longing for a bit of privacy – but we never did! The reason? We were having too much fun dancing, singing, playing cards, talking and taking in the stunning view of the Himalayas.

Also, I (Sigrun) would like to offer a special thank you to Narayan for organizing the best birthday party ever! How many people can say they celebrated their 23rd birthday in a lodge, dancing disco with a random mix of complete strangers, after eating a special made chicken curry and getting a cake with 23 candles? It was the best, and shows what an incredible caring guide we had!

I guess our praises could go on forever. As my boss told me the other day “you’re glowing when you’re talking about Nepal”. No wonder, since I’m absolutely in love with the country. I hope we can do another trek with our fabulous duo, Narayan and Kapil, someday. For now we’ll live on the memories of the greatest trek of our lives, and yet again: thanks to Nepal Hiking for arranging it, and special thanks to Narayan and Kapil for making it more than we could have hoped for!

Best regards,

May 24, 2016

Namaste Tilak,

Hope all is well in Nepal and your business is going o.k. We have been on a trek to ABC (Annapurna Base Camp) with Ram and Babu from Sep. 29 to Oct. 11, 2003. Since we returned to KTM very late on the day before we flew back to Germany there was no chance to visit you in your office in Kathmandu. However, we just wanted to give a brief feedback regarding the our trek.

First of all, Ram and Babu have been absolutely fantastic and took the greatest care of us. We had a wonderful time trekking with both them. Everything went smoothly and with-out any problems. Instead of starting the trek in Phedi Ram suggested to start in Naya Pul. We discussed that with him and he convinced us that the way up from Naya Pul would be a little bit easier and not as steep. Since he knows the area so well we certainly trusted his judgment and it turned to be a very good decision.

The climb up to Hille on the first day was rather easy and a good start to loosen up our legs after sitting in planes and buses for many hours during the last few days. We then hiked on to Ghorepani where we unfortunately encountered the Maoists. Ram handled the situation very well and we had no problems with them. The third day we trekked to Tadapani and on the fourth day we made it to Chhomorung.

Baerbel and I believe that this was a better way up because it gave us extra nights on rather high altitude to get used to the altitude and to prepare for the further hike up to ABC. We would support to recommend this way to other clients of your agency, in particular because we went back over Phedi and then realized how steep the trail is. We do not think that it is a good thing to do on the very first day of the trek.

Ram and Babu never rushed things and we had a very relaxing time. We took enough rests during the day and never felt too exhausted at the end of the day. Ram organized everything from food to drinks and we did not have to do anything but to enjoy the trek. His English is very good and he explained and pointed out many interesting things about Nepali people and the country. He seemed to very knowledgeable and never lost his patience despite all our questions. Babu also speaks reasonable English and both of them tried to teach us some Nepali. I am afraid we failed miserably trying to pronounce the words correctly. It always made us all laugh a lot, though.

We have been truly lucky to have Ram as our guide and also Babu added a lot to this great experience. We already have and will continue to recommend your agency to all of our friends. Most of them are hiking a lot and maybe they will plan a trip to Nepal in the near future also. In that case your agency will be their first point of contact since you seem to have very friendly and reliable people like Ram and Babu working for you.

Please give our best wishes and regards also to both of them if you speak to them again. We believe they are currently trekking in the Everest region.

All the best to you and good look with your future. We hope to see you again in Nepal some day.

Take care,

November 15, 2003
