Annapurna base camp trek 7 days

Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Annapurna base camp trek 7 days at (4130m) – four large lodges on a knoll beside a huge glacial moraine  takes under two hours. Annapurna Base camp short trek is a pleasant walk but the route can be hard to find if there’s fresh snow. The trail follows a stream, than climb to a few shepherds’ huts. Soon, you can see the hotel of base camp but the view is deceptive. It takes quite a while to reach as them the trail sticks close to the foot of  large lateral moraine.

In the high season the lodge here can be packed with trekkers. All the lodges have private rooms and decent loos and serve surprisingly good food, including high altitude apple pie. There’s little to differentiate the four lodges which are all well run.The Annapurna Base camp trek precinct is cold windy and often snowbound in spring the snow reaches the hotel roofs.

There are tremendous views of the near vertical south face of Mt, Annapurna towering above the Annapurna sanctuary to the northwest. The ascent of this face in 1970 was guide  by an expedition. Chris Bonington remains one of the most spectacular climbs of an 8000m peak. Mornings are usually clear clouds often roll in to obscured the peaks by noon, and then clear in the late afternoon.

As the trekkers marched west past the porter sheltered and volleyball court to a prayer flag draped viewpoint on the moraine for a spectacular view over the glacier nearby is a memorial chorten (Stone Buddhist monument)   to the well-known climber Anatoli Boukreev was  died in 1997 by an avalanche. Climbed the moraine behind the hotels for a fine valley overview.

Although the entire Annapurna region is harbor by Annapurna sanctuary trekking and it is often experience by trekkers.Several peaks accessible from its sanctuary is on the government official list of trekking peak Tharpu Chuli formally. Tent Peak (5663m) offers a commanding 360 degree view of the entire sanctuary. It’s higher neighbor to the north is Singu Chuli (fluted peak 6501m ) while on the south is Hiunchuli (6441m). All three of these peaks present significant mountaineering challenges.
