Trek to Annapurna Base Camp

We've just had a week long break from Banepa with a trek up to Annapurna Base Camp.  Below are some pic's from the trip. We were blessed with beautiful weather and awesome views of the mountains to make our climb up to 4300m worthwhile!
Local porters carry everything up to the villages and lodges higher up the valley. We saw watertanks, tables, gas bottles, cages of live chickens, and lots of food being carted up the hill.

Lots of amazing huge waterfalls...

and many funky, dodgy looking bridges too.
A view back to where we'd come from (down the bottom of the valley (than up and down and up again...)

  1. The Annapurna Conservation Area is a well known trekking region.
    There are three major trekking routes in the Annapurna region: the Jomson Trek to Jomsom and Muktinath (increasingly disturbed by a road-building project the Annapurna Sanctuary route to Annapurna base camp; and the Annapurna Circuit, which circles the Annapurna Himal itself and includes the Jomsom route.The town of Pokhara usually serves as a starting point for these treks, and is also a good starting place for other short treks of one to four days, such as routes to Ghorepani or Ghandruk.
    The Mustang district, a former kingdom bordering Tibet, is also geographically a part of the Annapurna region, but treks to upper Mustang are subject to special restrictions.
    About two-thirds of all trekkers in Nepal visit the Annapurna region. The area is easily accessible, guest houses in the hills are plentiful, and treks here offer incredibly diverse scenery, with both high mountains and lowland villages. Also, because the entire area is inhabited, trekking in the region offers unique cultural exposure and experience.
