The Annapurna Base camp trek (ABC) is one of the popular scenics; picturesque, refreshing, adventure-packed and organized walking trails on the hills towards the mighty Annapurna mountain ranges of western Nepal.
Walking in the trails so beautiful in the lap of the Himalayas that the view and satisfaction that you get replenishes your soul every day and washes away the exhaustion, this is the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) trek. Also popular as the 'Annapurna Sanctuary Trek,' the trail lies mostly in the Annapurna conservation area. The Annapurna Base camp is the starting point for anyone who decides to take on the summit of the mountain and many people get their inspiration here to deal with their problems. The 8091 m high peak is the tenth highest mountain in the world while it's base camp stays at an elevation of 4130 meters.

Best Travel Company
Together with my three friends did Annapurna Base Camp trek this summer and I couldn't have chosen the more perfect one for the arrangement. The company did a brilliant job of managing all the process in the short notice. We know it was a find when the customer care patiently answered all our queries before the booking itself. After tallying the price range in other service providers, we knew we had the best one with Himalayan Pic Du midi. Rajesh (our guide) was amazing, and he gave us the complete list of things we should bring. It absolutely prevented me from over-packing for the trek. The trek itself was flawless and with the cultural tour of the Kathmandu valley acted as the perfect bonus of the trip. I will visit Nepal again, and with more appreciation for the team, it's going to be Himalayan Pic Du Midi once more.
