Annapurna Sanctuary CME Trek

15 Days

Annapurna Sanctuary CME Trek

The Annapurna Sanctuary Trek (also known as The Annapurna Base Camp Trek) is nothing short of spectacular.

As one of the shortest major treks in Nepal, it offers an incredible experience that combines rich culture with unparalleled dramatic scenery. This trek is an unforgettable journey that few will ever experience.

We begin in Kathmandu, a colorful and bustling city like no other where diverse cultures and ancient traditions intermingle. A short flight brings us to the lakeside city of Pokhara where our journey deep into the world’s tallest mountain range begins.

Our path winds through one of the world’s deepest gorges and delivers us to Annapurna Base Camp, an amphitheater surrounded by awe-inspiring Himalayan giants. Along the way, we’ll walk through bamboo forests, terraced fields, and the warm and resilient villagers who manage them. We’ll stay in comfortable lodges each evening where we’ll gather for pre-dinner CME lectures.
