Itinerary Information

Reach out for the heart of the Himalayas !

The path elevates itself along the terraced fields, through charming  gurung villages till the high pastures and their yak shelters. Arriving at the Annapurna Base Camp is an unforgettable experience, leaving you with the impression that you can just touch the 26000 ft giants.

During the first days you will discover the Nepali country side and the gurung people, an ethnic group in Nepal known for their hospitality and their delicious ‘Dal Bhat’, national dish. As we go higher in altitude the villages become hamlets and in turn hamlets become scattered sheepfolds in deserted landscapes.
The Annapurna was the first 8000m ( 260000ft) to be climbed, it was Herzog in 1950 who first reached its summit. It is only 20 years and numerous tries later that the south face of the Annapurna was conquered.

Surrounded by 6000 and 7000m (19000 and 22900 ft) summits Annapurna South is the dream of  even the most experienced climbers.
