You will see the Annapurna massif from two different perspectives while trekking: a 360-degree view of the same massif from Base Camp, and a panoramic view from Ghorepani. The ultimate highlight of the trek is, undoubtedly, the Annapurna Base Camp itself. Situated amidst towering Himalayan peaks, the base camp provides an awe-inspiring panorama that will leave you utterly mesmerized.

The trail then takes you further, either towards the Himalaya or Sinuwa, depending on the chosen route. Finally, the much-anticipated next stop is the Annapurna Base Camp, where the towering peaks create a majestic backdrop. After exploring the Hidden Valley, the trek leads to Bamboo, Jhinu Dada, and eventually Birethanti.
After a night in Jhinu Dada, the concluding phase of the trek involves a return drive to Pokhara. This allows for a reflective conclusion to the expedition, providing an opportunity to appreciate the diverse landscapes, cultural encounters, and, most significantly, the majestic Himalayan vistas that characterize the Annapurna Base Camp trek.
