11 Days of stunning scenery & culture in the amazing Annapurnas of Pokhara
The lakeside city of Pokhara and the stunning Annapurna Mountains quickly become everyone’s favorite destination to visit in Nepal. The stunning skyline of the Annapurnas are the most distinctive of the Himalayan mountain ranges. Annapurna I (elev. 8,091 m/26,545 ft) is the 10th highest mountain in the world. Yet what dominates the skyline is Mt. Machhapurchhre (Fishtail Mountain) which literally looks like an upended fish. This is all part of the amazing ABC/Pokhara Trek.
Pokhara is known as the lakeside city because it is located on the eastern shore of the lovely Phewa Lake. This large, beautiful mountain lake reflects the beauty of the Annapurnas on its mirror like waters. The trek takes you through a myriad of eco-systems as the trail rises from sub-tropical to alpine. The maximum elevation is at Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) at 4,130 m (13,549 ft.)
The ABC/Pokhara Trek combines incredible alpine beauty with wonderful flora and fauna. The lower parts of the trail pass through villages and past farms of the amazing Gurung people. These tribal people have been the backbone of the Gurkha soldiers of the British Army for nearly 200 years. Known as the world’s fiercest fighters, they also are known for incredible hospitality. They will welcome you to their homes and villages as you make your way to ABC.
