15 day set departures and private expeditions from £1,295

Trek-to-Annapurna-Base-Camp
Experience the majesty of the Annapurna Sanctuary and up to the stunning Annapurna Base Camp (ABC).

Beginning on the doorstep of the world’s highest mountains, our ABC trek spans rich forests, sparkling rivers and traditional Gurung villages. The natural amphitheatre at ABC is supremely rewarding, with views stretching Annapurna 1, Gangapurna and Machapuchhare, or the Fish Tail Mountain.

Soak up the sunrise with views atop Poon Hill and indulge in the natural springs on our descent. No words can capture this trek, no pictures do it justice. Get inspired and see it for yourself!

Travelling to Nepal

You’ll need a passport with 6-month’s validity as well as a Nepalese visa. The best way to obtain this is to buy it on entry to Nepal in any major currency but not Nepali Rupees. Typically, the cost is USD30 for 15 days.

You’ll also need travel insurance and you should visit your GP or a health professional at least 4-6 weeks before you travel to check which vaccinations you may need.

For more info on travelling safely and obtaining a visa, see the FCO Know Before You Go campaign.
