About the Trip
"Annapurna Base Camp Trek" is way around one of the remote traditional villages where our journey heads towards greetings of provincial people exceeding lush green growth with scenery snow-covered white mountains with fine views and a delightful blend of cultures unprecedented by any other treks in the World. Annapurna Base Camp is by far one of the most beautiful treks. It’s a path to the brilliant bastard amphitheater of the extremely elegant peaks of the Annapurna mountain range. ABC trek is the most familiar and vibrant hike in the Himalayas of Nepal. The journey starts from Pokhara in the foothills of the Annapurna and dies through charming villages of Magar and Gurung public as Gurkha soft soldiers recuperate. The lushness of the Rhododendron woodland, happy villages, and sky-kissing mountain landscapes within just 8 days or less constitute an outdoor journey one of the most popular. The journey is indifferently full of exciting bums of ups and downs on the rough trail. Annapurna base camp at (4,130 )m is a funnel-shaped valley with panoramic inspection of Annapurna South, Annapurna I (8,097m/26,566ft), Tent peak, Fishtail, and others. Melting snow of the immense rock faces form a glacier that drains into the Modi River.

Along with the most spectacular and close up view of the Annapurna range, Machhapuchhre, Hiunchuli, and Dhaulagiri.
The ABC Trek is also known as the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek because you walk along the protected area's trail. The journey can be considered as much of an ecclesiastical journey as a venturesome one. It is considered one of the most beautiful sanctuaries in the world- protecting not only the floral and faunal species of the land but also its natural environment and the local ethnic culture. Throughout the trip, you can enjoy and encounter local ethnic Gurung and Magar cultures at small settlements and villages. Sitting at an altitude of (4,130m/13,549ft).the Sanctuary is an oval-shaped plateau that is surrounded by a ring of the Annapurna Mountains.

Discovery World Trekking
A World Away From Covid-19
We could not have asked for a better time trekking in Ruby Valley with our 4 children (12, 9, 5 & 1 years old). We had a wonderful guide, Dol, & 3 amazing porters Amrit, Prabhat & Gokul. They were so professional, helpful, patient, focused & a joy to get to know. They helped our family, with small kids, to cross over Pansang Pass & enjoy so many beautiful places. On this particular trek, we were able to visit their own home village, Chalish, & get to meet their immediate family members & learn about daily life thereof planting, harvesting & preparing important crops such as red millet & corn, cooking over a fire, visiting the school there, hearing the stories of childhood & seeing the cohesiveness of people working together. Our experience was unforgettable!
The package they offered made our time very smooth & well-provided for. Paul was always in good contact with us, answering any questions swiftly. He is very detailed-oriented & organized things so well for our family. We had no problem getting our visas at the airport, & the staff was waiting for us outside to take us to our hotel. On the trail, we ate the food of the villages we visited. We took refreshment from nature & a wifi-free part of the world! We had a great family time! Concerning Covid-19, we all made sure we tested negative before our trek. The staff took precautions, & we felt very safe as we went on the trail. There is no evidence of Covid-19 in these areas. We could enjoy a normal life again in the beauty of the Himalayas. We are confident this experience will remain in our family's hearts forever.
Annapurna Base Camp
While completing the ABC trek with Discovery World Trekking I was in constant awe of the energy, smiles, constant help, and care that I received from my guide and porters.
Kim, jo, and Aga are at annapurna base camp(4,130m)
These individuals answered our millions of questions about Nepal while making sure we were safe and well-fed the whole time. Always making sure we slept well and drank water, my friends and I enjoyed every minute of the great route and the company we had on this trekking.
Amazing trek to Annapurna Base Camp!
We just completed the nine day trek to ABC. Paul and his team did a fantastic job of coordinating all the details. Our guide, Dol, was so friendly and we knew we were in good hands the entire time. I also really enjoyed talking to him on the trail...learning about what it’s like to live in Nepal and hearing about his family and the village where he grew up.Our porters, Deb and Gakul, did an incredible job!!! They have the hardest job, and I don’t know how they do it. We have done a lot of backpacking over the years, but I’m not sure I could have carried my pack for nine days considering the challenging terrain.Although your guide will have basic first aid supplies, I strongly recommend carrying your own first aid kit (always better to have more supplies than to run out) and LOTS of ibuprofen for swollen knees!This was truly the adventure of a lifetime for us. It was challenging, but we loved every minute. We highly recommend Discovery World Trekking. They are very professional, and we will use them again when we come back to do EBC.P.S. If you trek to ABC, keep your eye out for this trail dog (and feed her if you have any leftovers). She stuck with us for about half the trek and was one of the highlights of our trip. She was super friendly! We named her Luna and really wish we could have brought her home.
