When we talk about the Annapurna Base Camp, we get a rush of awe that leaves every trekker speechless. Few treks can make you fall in love with the scenery while bringing you closer to the base of 7,000 and 8,000-meter peaks in a short amount of time. One of the most popular treks in the Annapurna region is the Annapurna Base Camp trip. The trail is breathtaking, passing past rice paddies, rich rhododendron forests, and high-altitude sceneries, with the Annapurna Range looming in the background most of the time.

Col. James Roberts of the United Kingdom discovered ABC in 1956. He was so taken aback by its beauty that he named it the "Sanctuary of the Gods."
