ABC, Annapurna Base Camp trek has become renowned as one of the most spectacular trekking routes in the world which offers some of the most spectacular mountain scenery, providing a fascinating insight into the modern hill life of Nepal. This trek attracts the large number of tourists because they find everything the Himalayas have to offer, accessible along a selection of well-maintained trails that snake in and around the 55-kilometre Annapurna massif, separated from the gargantuan Dhaulagiri (8167m) by the Kaligandaki, the deepest gorge in the world.
The trek to Annapurna base camp starts from Nayapul following the Modi River and passing through dense stands of rhododendron and bamboo. You then trek to Poonhill, Tadapani, Dovan, Machhapuchhre Base Camp and finally Annapurna Base Camp. You get plenty of time to explore the vicinity of Base Camp. We then trek back to Nayapul passing the village like Bamboo and Jhinu Danda.

clean and chance to see amazing view of Mountain peak. Most of the day is sunny

of flower and fauna. While in winter (December-January-February) season most of
the trekking roots are covered by Snow and have maximum cold. The view will
totally covered by fogs and snow however travelers come for enjoying with snow.

trekking. At the time there will be heavy rain. So, it will be difficult
time of trekking and less chance of Mountain View.
