About 13 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek

13 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek is obviously a famous trek available for worldwide trekkers visiting Nepal. The trek takes you to a large number of principal mountain peaks belonging to the western area of the Great Annapurna Himalayas. These include Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Annapurna, Fang, Annapurna 3, Gangapurna and Machhapuchhare, all of which remain arranged in a precise way within a circle of about 10 miles diameter with a deep mountain glacier covered amphitheater at its center.

Further, by starting from the glacier basin, also recognized as Annapurna Sanctuary, Modi Khola starts its way in the southern direction within a narrow gorge at about 12,000 feet deep. Later on, in the south, you will find the gorge as opening widely and form a fertile valley i.e. domain of various Gurungs. Other than this, upper and middle portions of Modi Khola provide you with the best possible and short trekking routes of Nepal.

Location of the valley justifies an easy trek into the Kali Gandaki region belonging to the west. Although, you will find great heights of various ice walls and surrounding mountain peaks, floor of the valley remains in between 12,000feet and 14,000feet to provide comfortable yet enjoyable camping spots in pleasant weather.

13 Days Annapurna base camp trekking involves an amazing walk via diversified landscape and culture complete with terraced fields, rich mountain vistas, quaint villages of Gurung areas and a variety of fauna and flora. Mount Annapurna in Nepal is the 10th highest mountain worldwide and journey to the base camp of it is obviously a popular walk for everyone.
