Annapurna Base camp trek, affords a fine opportunity to surround oneself with major Himalayan peaks, in a relatively short span of time, without having to contend with extreme altitudes. The trail goes northwest from Pokhara and along the Modi Khola directly north right into a natural amphitheater of high mountains with 360-degree views of Annapurna South (7,219m), Annapurna III (7,555m), Gangapurna (7,454m) and Machhapuchhre (6,993m). This trek, within its short duration, provides an interesting variety of climate, vegetation and terrain – from lowland subtropical villages growing rice to alpine vegetation closer to the passes and into the sanctuary where access could be difficult in mid-winter because of snow.
