About Annapurna Base Camp Trek
Annapurna Base Camp Trek starts at Nayapul with one and half hours drive north of the Pokhara metropolitan. This wonderful trek explores diverse ethnic groups and their interesting cultures, the local communities found here are Gurung, Magar, Thakali and we are warmly welcomed by these local tribes; blended with this is a glimpse of beautiful flora and fauna found in this area. Annapurna Base Camp trek itinerary presented here takes 12 days, starting from Nayapul oner drive from Pokhara) and going north up to Ghorepani and the famous viewpoint at Poon Hill. From Ghorepani you go eastward to Chomrong and then north again entering the Modi Kola Valley which leads up to the Base Camp. Many people trek the circuit Nayapul-Ghorepani-Ghandruk-Nayapul, which is very rewarding in itself. This trek can easily be done with children as well. This trek route goes passing through spectacular and tranquil landscapes, charming Gurung and Magar villages, lush green Rhododendron, bamboo and alpine forests to the trip’s last and final destination, Annapurna Base Camp at the height of 4130m (13546ft.).
After Annapurna Base Camp, we revert back to Pokhara via Jhinu Danda & Pothana, on the way we haul up at Jhinu Danda to soak of the sweat of our bodies in the healthy hotsprings found there & then head back to Pokhara to chill out by the serene lake. On this trek, we bunk out in cozy teahouse lodges & enjoy the sumptuous apple pies found here. This is a 'must do’ trek at least once in a lifetime.

About Volunteer Society Nepal

Volunteer Society Nepal is founded on a dream. That brave and generous volunteers from across all backgrounds from Nepal and abroad could work together.
At the height of the conflict in Nepal in 2004 we gathered a team of Nepalese development workers. We also invited foreign social activists and foreign volunteers to come and help. Together we combat the shortages in education, healthcare and women’s rights. We believe we can do this quicker and more efficiently than the existing international organizations. Our work has taken on a new dimension following the devastation of the 2015 earthquake. We have since doubled our efforts to sustain and increase our humanitarian projects.
