ABC Trek overview:

ABC trek is an amazing trekking experience taking you from the diverse landscape, unique culture & traditions to the surreal mountain views. Pristine Nepal Treks & Expeditions takes you to this amazing journey to witness the Annapurna (10th highest mountain in the world) closely from its base camp. Similarly, this ABC trek is also renown as the Annapurna Sanctuary trek.

Not only this, you can have a lifetime opportunity to spectate the holy Fishtail Mountain on the way to Annapurna Base Camp. Thanks to our well-crafted Annapurna Base Camp trek itinerary. In addition, ABC trekking package is designed by our expert teams providing you 100% safety & satisfaction.

Annapurna Base Camp is categorized as a moderate trek in difficulty. As per our 10 days itinerary, you’ll trek for just 6 days. The first day of your trek starts from Siwai & stop at Chhomrong for overnight stay. You’ll then hike to Dovan & on your third, you’ll trek to Macchapuchhre base camp.

Machhapuchhre meaning “Fishtail” is regarded as a holy mountain in Nepal. Due to which, to date, the Nepal government hasn’t issued permission to climb this mountain. The unique double summit resembles the tail of the fish, hence giving the name Fishtail. It also got the nickname “Matterhorn of Nepal”.

On your fourth special day, you’ll hike to Annapurna Base Camp in the early morning for sunrise view. From the base camp along with Annapurna, you’ll spectate 13 other peaks over 7,000m which is truly a sight to behold.

After successfully reaching the base camp you’ll then trek back to Dovan. After that, you’ll trek back to Siwai & drive to Pokhara on your 8th day.

Tips: If you are not in a tight schedule & wish to reach the base camp in chill & relaxed manner then we recommend you to try different routes like Annapurna Base Camp 14 Days or Annapurna Sanctuary Trek 14 Days.
