Annapurna Base Camp Trek

If you love hiking and big mountains, you need to visit this unique region of Nepal. After years of leading treks to Annapurna as a result,  we have developing our own unique itinerary. The Annapurna Base Camp Trek has a number of world class viewing points and you do not want to miss them.

Annapurna Base Camp

1). The Peace Pagoda Above Pokhara

Firstly, from the World Peace Pagoda you will get one of the great Himalayan mountain views. I recommend finishing your time in Pokhara with a visit to the Peace Pagoda.  It is easy to reach the starting point by taxi from your hotel.

My favorite time to visit the Peace Pagoda without a doubt,  is early in the morning for sunrise.  You can see right along the Himalayan range from Dhaulagiri passed Machapuchare mountain to Manaslu.

From this point you can see for miles right along the Himalayan range and beyond. You will see three 8,000m peaks right in front of you.  You can also see the sun rise right over the Himalayan mountains. One of the great mountain viewing points in the world.

2). Hike up Poon Hill

Secondly, one of the more famous view points and must see views, is from Poon hill. The sunrise off Poon hill is unique, special and worth the effort. The view across the Himalaya’s is truly unique.

You can add this hike up Poon hill on all our Annapurna base camp and Annapurna circuit treks. The early morning scene is a must when you are visiting this region of Nepal.

3). Annapurna Base Camp

Finally, you will experience one of the world’s best mountain views from Annapurna Base Camp. As you approach the Annapurna Sanctuary you will see some great mountain views of Machapuchare at 22,943 feet.

Once you turn into the Annapurna Sanctuary you will be presented with mountains like Hiunchuli. From Hiunchuli you can follow the ridge line across Annapurna I, Annapurna II to Gangapurna and onto Annapurna III.

This sequence of mountains and views looking up at the mountains 4 vertical kilometers above your head is truly unique and inspiring. READ SOME REVIEWS.
