The beautiful Annapurna Base Camp trek leads to a bowl-like Himalayan sanctuary encircled by white peaks, some higher than 8,000 meters. The trek, in the awe-inspiring Annapurna mountain range, takes you through rhododendron forests, traditional Nepali villages and ever-higher vistas.
We begin in Nayapul and hike to Ghorepani. The next morning, we wake up early to catch the sunrise at Poon Hill, where we get a stunning, panoramic view of the Himalayas, including the peaks of Dhaulagiri(8,167m), Annapurna I(8,091m), Fishtail(6,993m) and the three-peak Nilgiri range. At Tadapani, the trail splits and we take the base camp route. We continue through beautiful villages, such as Chhomrong, nestled amid the awesome mountain peaks.
The trek reaches Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) base camp and then ultimately Annapurna Base Camp trek. Early the next morning, we catch the sunrise. The sun bathes the top of the snowy peaks with a golden glow, giving you a memory you will never forget. Trekking down, we stop to enjoy the hot springs in Jhinu Danda, trek to Nayapul and drive to Pokhara. The itinerary can be customized to meet your needs and interests.

A few weeks ago we successfully trekked the Annapurna Circuit and Base Camp. This was my second trek with Hari and the first with my daughters, Megan and Natalie. During our three-week adventure, Hari demonstrated great planning and showed great presence--this is why I will join him again.
Hari knew well the sections of the Circuit we needed to travel by jeep or by foot. Hari planned each day with skill so that Megan, who could only be with us for two weeks, reached her desired destination, and Natalie and I completed our trek to Base Camp as planned. Hari’s intelligence, knowledge, and years of trekking experience were so appreciated by our family.
Throughout our trek, Hari was attentive to our needs, while being outgoing, patient, and personable. He's a man of integrity anyone can trust; and he's an excellent communicator who keeps his promises while being polite, straightforward, and reliable.
I highly recommend Hari of Nepal Hiking Trek to any prospective trekker. I look forward to my next adventure with Hari, knowing that we will share many warm-hearted laughs along the trail.
