Trip Introduction


Annapurna Base Camp Trek region in Nepal has been wildly recognized as a naturalist’s paradise. Annapurna base camp  trek/tour region is a very popular area that offers a dramatic trekking experience for trekkers from all over world.

This is a 9-day trek but one can do 2 to 21 days trekking/tour in the Annapurna region. The upper sub-alpine steppe environment harbors some of the rarest animals including snow leopards and blue sheep. Other areas of Annapurna trekking region are home to bird species such as the multi-coloured Impeyan, kokla, blood pheasant amongst a multitude of other birds, butterflies and insects. Many plant species native to Nepal are found in the forest of Annapurna trekking region. The Annapurna conservation area has 100 varieties of orchids and some of the richest temperate rhododendron forests in the world.

For thousands of years people of diverse ethnic backgrounds have scratched a livelihood out of Annapurna’s steep hillsides. The advent of tourism and the phenomenal rise in human population has triggered environmental deterioration. In 1968 Nepal’s King Mahendra Trust for Nature Conservation launched the Annapurna Conservation Area Project in order to protect this pristine gift from nature.

Enjoy this 9-day trek through some of the most spectacular hills and mountains in the entire world.

    Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Nepal Lion We booked a nine-day ABC-trek with Nepal Lion Treks. Already before and throughout the trek, we felt very comfortable receiving all the necessary information from Shiva (office) and our great guide Binod! Binod spoke sufficient English and had a close eye on our well-being all along the trek. He took care of everything (e.g. food, booking the teahouses, getting blankets, checking on symptoms of altitude sickness) and was fun to have around. So we could concentrate on the main things: Hiking, hiking and hiking ;-). The trek is really awesome and leads you through many different climates and landscapes! If this is your first real trek, you will most likely find it a bit strenuous but you will be rewarded by magnificient views and a great experience. Nepal Lion Tours assists you with personally tailoring the trek to your own needs and schedule and is flexible to adapt and make changes even during the trip. E.g., we decided to spend the last night of the program in Pokhara instead of Kathmandu and Shiva arranged for our additional luggage (which we left at the hotel in Kathmandu) to be brought directly to the Airport so we could directly continue with our onward flight. I would highly recommend a tour operator like Nepal Lion Treks when you are on a limited time budget and don‘t want to have to worry about all the organisational bits and pieces of such a trip!
