Annapurna Base camp Trek

8 Days

Overview

The legendary Annapurna Base Camp Trek is also known as the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. Annapurna Base Camp Trek leads you to reach a base camp of Mt Annapurna.

Reminder:

  • In case of natural calamities i.e. political unrest, cancellation of flight due to weather, landslides etc the extra charge should be born by themselves.
