Annapurna Base Camp Trek begins from Phedi (where we start first day of our trek). During the trek, we encounter sub-tropical heat, pretty villages and neatly terraced rice fields. Gaining height gradually, we enjoy several days of pleasant walking with a mix of abundant forest and scattered areas of farmed land. Finally, beyond the last of the bamboo and rhododendron woodland, the valley narrows at the entrance to the world of ice and snow that is the Annapurna Sanctuary. Throughout the walk-in there are outstanding panoramas of the high peaks to the north, and the contrast of the rice-fields and villages with the snow peaks above, makes for very picturesque trekking indeed. Finally, our trips end at Naya Pul, then, you will drive to Pokhara, enhances by its lovely lakes, which have their source in the glacial region of the Annapurna range of the Himalayas.
