Annapurna Sanctuary guided trek from Badger Adventures
Kathmandu is your starting point. Spend the day exploring this energetic city splashed with a multitude of colour. Take in the smells from the street stalls, intermingle with vibrant locals or just take in everyday life of this a truly effervescent place.
Then the ultimate trekking experience begins, oozing with diverse local culture, spellbinding scenery and warm hospitality all encased by the overwhelming peaks of the Annapurna Range. Witness the untouched beauty of the Nepalese lowlands and then navigate through valleys, traditional villages passing rivers, waterfalls, and forests, whilst enjoying the magnificent views of nature, to reach where the moraines guard the entrance to the natural amphitheater. This arena allows you to be engrossed in the panoramic landscape that is simply mind blowing. You will be staying in local tea houses, best described as a rural guest house, scattered along the trail. Once Base Camp has been reached a two and half day trek follows back to Pokhara, Nepal’s second city, this is a perfect place to relax following your adventure and start planning your next Badger Adventure.
