Annapurna North Base Camp Trekking

Annapurna North Base Camp is a recently opened trekking destination. Seven decades ago, in 1950, well-known French Climber Maurice Herzog and his team reached this base camp in pursuit of the historic Annapurna I summit, the first human step above 8,000 meters high Mountain in the world. With the opening of cheap lodges towards the southern base camp of Annapurna, virtually no one came for trekking in this part of the mountain. This isolated yet historic trekking route has now been retraced and opened for trekking exploration.

While trekking here, we reach the beautiful villages of the local indigenous Magar people, which are rarely visited by tourists. After leaving the village settlement and heading towards the mountains, we reach the Annapurna North Base Camp at the mouth of the Annapurna North Glacier. Even though the trekking journeys in the Himalayas have been shrinking due to road and development, it is indeed a special occasion to trek in such wilderness not very far from the tourist hub town of Pokhara. Isolated wilderness, glaciers, rivers, and settlements make this trip a complete package of true trekking experiences in the Himalayas. The Annapurna North Base Camp Trek has to be a fully supported camping trip for which we are able to cater excellent team of experienced guides, cooks, and other support staff with excellent equipment. The itinerary here consists 7 nights 8 days trip but depending on your time availability the trip can be made shorter or longer by a few days.
