12 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek: ABC Trek Itinerary & Price

Get to see the majestic Annapurna range and many other stunning mountains on the Annapurna base camp trekking. Explore the diverse cultural heritage of the locals and come across some exotic wildlife & vegetation while trekking. Annapurna base camp trek is one of the most famous treks in the Annapurna region, packed with adventure. This trek is also known as the Annapurna sanctuary trek.

We have a range of Annapurna base camp trek packages from as short as 5 days to the Annapurna base camp helicopter tour and many others. This Annapurna base camp trek 12 days itinerary is the most special one because it also takes you to beautiful Ghorepani village (2,874 m) and includes a side excursion to the popular Poon hill (3,210 m) viewpoint. Along with that, while descending from the Annapurna base camp (4,130 m), you will walk by a lovely place called Pothana (1,890 m).  

The Annapurna base camp trek 12 days package also has a layover at Jhinu Danda (1,780 m), where you can relax in natural hot springs by paying a few extra bucks. The trail up to the Annapurna base camp is gentle and does not see a drastic elevation change abruptly, which is very unlike the Everest base camp trek. The terrain has a mix of steep uphill walks and flat rough paths. You'll be trekking in the Annapurna Conservation Area, so most parts of the trail are just lush forests. 

In terms of mountain views, the Annapurna base camp trek Nepal presents a breathtaking panorama of Mt. Annapurna (8,091 m), Annapurna South (7,219 m), Dhaulagiri (8,167 m), Hiunchuli (6,441 m), Nilgiri (7,061 m), Gangapurna (7,455 m), Tukuche (6,920 m), Fishtail (6,993 m), Tent Peak (5,695 m), etc. The scenery along the route is fantastic too. You'll not get bored. The sunrise from Poon Hill is also worth catching, with snow-capped western Himalayan mountains in the backdrop. 

Similarly, the locals and their warm welcome will definitely win your heart. You spend nights in simple lodges or tea houses yet experience the most humble hospitality. The Annapurna region is mostly resided by the Magars and Gurungs. In the lower part of the trail, you will meet with people from other communities too, like Chhetris, Newars, Brahmins, etc.
