The majestic views of Machhapuchhare (6,993m), Hiunchuli (6,641m), and Annapurna make this trek extremely gratifying. Mounting up through the Modi Khola valley towards the Annapurna conservation area, we are driven and inspired by the views of soaring summits and extremely tall rocky walls with waterfalls roaring down into the dwindling river below. As the valley broadens, we rise to Machhapuchhare Base Camp (3,700m) on the glacial deposit of Annapurna South Glacier.

The sturdy hike up to Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) divulges the full grandeur of the fastest growing mountains of the world! On reaching our destination, we will be overwhelmed by the grand mountains guarding in all directions. We will walk along an altered trail to our destination and relish the views of Annapurna I from a different angle. There will be a short diversion up to the beautiful Poonhill (3,210m) before exiting the Annapurna Conservation Area, which will offer us a chance to view the absolutely regal Himalayan peak Dhaulagiri (8,167m). This is the absolute classic ABC Trek. What are you waiting for?
