The Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the most popular treks in the Annapurna region.  The trail goes alongside terraced rice paddies, lush rhododendron forests, and high altitude landscapes,  with the Annapurna Range in view most of the times.

From this glacier basin, known as the Annapurna Sanctuary, the Modi Khola knifes its way south in a narrow gorge fully 12,000 ft. deep. Further south, the gorge opens up into a wide and fertile valley, the domain of the Gurungs.  The Annapurna Base Camp Trek can easily be done by yourself if you wish to.
