Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is considered one of the world's great treks. The walk-in to the Sanctuary provides an experience of the great variety of landscape types which serve to make Nepal such a special trekking destination. You will pass through a diverse geographical and cultural variation with an amazing range of flora and fauna in between. During the trek, we encounter sub-tropical heat, pretty villages and neatly terraced rice fields. Gaining height gradually, we enjoy several days of pleasant walking with a mix of abundant forest and scattered areas of farmed land.

Dear Shikher, Anil and all your team I wanted to sincerely thank you for your amazing support and understanding whilst I organized the Habitat Team, especially during the time I had to fly to the U.K. for my Fathers illness and funeral. Your professionalism and helpfulness were outstanding, and it was a pleasure to work with you on this project. To date I have had a few phone calls from Team Members to say how amazing their Tours were, as well as the Sherpas/Guides. Carol deHaas also mentioned how great you were when she broke her ankle and how you helped her with the hospital visit. I know that all the Team Members will have had an amazing experience and that will come down to the way your run your business and the high work ethic in which you strive for. I only wish that all the Tour Operators I deal with were as fantastic as Natraj Trekking. Read more
