Why Annapurna Base Camp trekking?

The appealing view of bamboo, alpine vegetation and dense rhododendron forest preserved within the sanctuary, especially in the spring season will furnish your soul the butterfly energy to march along the trails. Being welcomed by the local ethnic people, mostly Gurung and Magars and observing their cultures, traditions will certainly be a delight to your expedition.

Annapurna Region is the most preferred site because of the fact that it remains drier than other trekking routes in Nepal such as the Everest region as it gets less rainfall at the higher altitude. While getting back from the trek, you can grab the leverage of taking bath in natural hot spring and rejuvenate your tired body cells at Jhinu Danda.
