Every once in a while, we need a getaway. A refreshment to rejuvenate ourselves from our hectic and frenzied lives is essential for all of us. How about venturing into the spectacular Himalayas? Trekking through lush forests, crystal clear streams, primitive and beautiful villages all the while being surrounded by the panorama of the snow-capped mountains, sounds like a perfect getaway. Doesn’t it? Have a break of only 2 weeks? The experience is diverse and complete, there are very few treks which are able to combine so many different landscapes and bring you to the foot of mighty 7,000 and 8,000 meter mountains.
The Annapurna Base Camp (4,130m) is immersed in a unique and incredibly spectacular setting, amidst the unbelievable peaks of Annapurna I (8,091m), Annapurna South (7,219m), Machhapuchhre (6,993m) and Hiunchuli (6,441m). Being surrounded by these incredible Himalayan giants will leave you in awe of their stunning snow-capped peaks and magnitude. This spectacular trek can be enjoyed by all, is possible to complete with children or independently. Machhapuchhre, known as the ‘fish tailed mountain’ is as glorious as it is unique, revered by Nepalese for its exquisite beauty. The trek will also take you through some of the most diverse greenery, going through rhododendron, fern and bamboo forests. The thick forests are adorned with immensely tall oak trees, giving you the experience of being completely immersed in nature.

A beautiful trek starting and ending from Nayapul (1070m ) from sea level.
Destination Unlimited came through with flying colors again for us!!! Great job!!!! Helmed by Ashok Niroula, everything was well organized — good lodgings, a wonderful, amicable, responsible guide — in the person of a young man named Badal Rai, who made sure we were safe, comfortable & well fed all the way. It was a wonderful trek — despite rain, hail, snow & a near avalanche above us (Badal reacted very quickly & whisked us to safety to wait it out before continuing onward). Many Thanks Ashok & Badal!!!
I did ABC trekking via Destination Unlimited Treks in April this year. Ashok is extremely prompt with his responses, helpful and accommodating. He constantly checked to see if we have arrived at every location, even till the very last day (that I landed safely at my home country). I had a very attentive and experienced guide (Gangga) and porter (Om) to whom I've bonded and grown very fond of throughout my 8 days journey. I was really well taken care of and though I went solo, I felt safe with them. I hope to go again and will definitely do it through DUT. Thanks DUT for making this a memorable experience!
Our team have 7 members from Kuching, Malaysia, dated 26/4/2018-7/5/2018, with Destination Unlimited amazing services and guards, we all 7 members managed to trek to ABC within schedule, also with very good trekking guard and 4 porters take care of our daily living stuffs safely. We all have no worries but enjoy every steps and mountains view of Annapurna.
The three of us had an excellent trekking to ABC via Destination Unlimited. From the beginning until the end Ashok (the owner) provided excellent service, very clear and fast communication and perfectly managed the expectations. We would definitely recommend this agency and trip. Also due to the friendly, funny and helpful guide Hari and porters Ira and Raam.
Given that this was my second time here, I wanted to attempt the ABC trek alone, but a recent pneumonia scare and a knee injury a couple of months back made me rethink my initial decision. Meet Yaksha Kumar, my trekking guide from Destination Unlimited Treks, without whom- I couldn't have done it all. His concerns are careful, and even painstaking, but never pedantic. He is silly, honest and kind - a combination of forgotten virtues in today's dog-eat-dog world. He surprises me with local fruits from his bag-pack every now and then, and I try to return the favour with snickers and yogurt bars, which are lame processed rubbish compared to what he offers. He says I exude a melancholic disposition, and I suppose that's why his sunny disposition can be very welcoming when the trek gets challenging. Ashok, the owner, has been very kind and patient in dealing with my questions and requests before and during the trek. He is not a 'business-man', he is a friend, and for this - I will call him again when I return to Nepal to attempt the EBC in 2019.
Q.Do we need crompons or spikes?
Ans: Nowadays staying over night at Annapurna Base is not much places, mostly trekkers staying at MBC and early morning hike to ABC and back. If still snow, early morning hiking and trekking to ABC icy and slippery so we might needed spikes( basic crampons).
