Australian Camp Trekking
One of the famous and short trips of all time, Australian Camp Trekking leaves you with the opportunity to be alive in the Annapurna region.
Australian Camp Trekking is a soft and sweet trekking goal for the people who have limited holiday time. This is one of the shortest trekking routes in the Annapurna region. Combined with a scenic and easy trek at the outskirts of Pokhara City. If you are searching for the break from the monotonous drabness of your daily life, the Australian Camp Trekking can be the best option. Follow the paths of locals and get into the countryside. See the livelihood of locals in the multi-ethnic community nestling in the lap of Himalaya. Moreover, Australian Camp Trekking offers a superb viewpoint that is tranquil and quiet, yet with full of panoramic vistas of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and the beautiful Fishtail mountains.
Australian Camp Trekking can be termed as hiking. Visitors traverse further uphill through temperate forests of different deciduous trees. They encounter monkeys and other wild animals. The cool forest with rhododendron flowers and the lovely sound of the wilderness make your uphill walking effortless. Once you are at the top of the Australian Camp, the grassy meadows offer you magnificent all round views. The tranquil atmosphere and the panoramic view of snow-clad mountains and hilly landscapes far up in the horizon entice everyone. Enjoy the majestic Himalaya, terraced farmlands, multi-ethnic society and diversified forests environment and much more.

June through September is the monsoon season when as much as 70% of the annual rainfall occurs. This is also when rockfall and landslides are most likely to occur. That leaves two times when hiking the Australian Camp Trekking is best: October through November and mid-March to mid-April
