Overview

Annapurna Base Camp (also known as Annapurna Sanctuary) is a high mountain basin in the Annapurna range of the Himalayas in Nepal. It is located at an altitude of 4130 meters (13,550 feet) and is surrounded by peaks of over 7000 meters (23,000 feet). The base camp is a popular destination for trekkers, as it offers stunning views of the surrounding mountains, including Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Khangsar Kang, Gangapurna, Annapurna III, and Machhapuchhare. It is also home to a wide variety of flora and fauna, including rare species of birds and animals. The base camp can be reached through a narrow gorge called the Modi Khola glacier valley, which takes about 7 hours of trekking from the nearest village. The trek to Annapurna Base Camp is considered moderate to challenging and is recommended for those who are physically fit and have some previous trekking experience.
