Organized in support of Giripremi's Mt. Manaslu 2017 expeditions..
Mt. Annapurna... world's 10th highest mountain... Trek to the base camp of Annapurna ABC is as popular trekking destination as EBC if not more. The trek begins at Pokhara, widely known as the ‘Lake City’ and passes through cascading waterfalls, beautiful villages, terraced farmlands, lush rhododendron forests, and amazing mountain vistas before reaching the base of the mighty Annapurna.
The entire surrounding area of the Annapurna region is protected by the Annapurna Conservation Area Project . Which collects numerous high mountains like Machapuchare 6,993m, Mt. Annapurna I 8,091m, Mt. Annapurna II 7,939m , Mt. Annapurna III 7,555m, Mt. Annapurna IV 7,525m, Mt. Lamjung Himal 6,986m, etc. Hot water springs at Poon Hill are one of the attractions during the trek. You can come here all around the year as people trek in all seasons; however the best time to come to this area is between March to mid may and between Septembers to mid November. Many people do not prefer coming here in winters as the weather is very cold and the snowy conditions may make your trekking experience difficult. At the same time few prefer winter to avoid the lot of crowds.
