    Overview

    First Week: Introduction Week
    Our introduction week will get you kickstarted into this amazing country located at the foothills of the mighty Himalayas. Now only will you get to learn about the language and lifestyle, but you will also visit temples, go on a hiking tour and even take part in a scavenger hunt race at a local market!

    Second and Third Week: Annapurna Base Camp Trek
    Annapurna Base Camp Trek starts from trailhead Nayapul, cross river beds and terraced hillsides, on trails disappearing into blazing rhododendron clusters and oak forest, to picturesque villages of the Gurungs. We will go on to the deep narrow corridor of Modi River Gorge, entrance to the sanctuary, a spectacular mountain amphitheatre formed by the towering peaks of Annapurna South, Fang, Annapurna I and III, Gangapurna, Glacier Dome and Machhapuchhre. Annapurna Sanctuary Trek allows trekkers to pitch camp at approximately 14,000 ft, in the middle of breathtaking surroundings.

    Annapurna Sanctuary is also popular as natural amphitheatre because of the its dramatic views from where trekkers can enjoy real natural wonders. On return, we descend through the gorge and cross the Deorali Pass from which can be had a bird's eye view of the Kali Gandaki valley. On a rest day normally planned for Ghorepani, a short climb up to Poon Hill is worthwhile to get a sweeping view of the entire western Himalaya, including the giant Dhaulagiri.

    Fourth Week: Community Service
    You will get the chance to give back to Nepal by helping out in some of our projects. Your choices will be teaching at a local school, helping out at a kindergarten or aiding injured dogs in our shelter.
