    The itinerary presented here takes 11 days, starting from Nayapool at 1 1/2 driving from Pokhara, and going north up till Gorepani and the famous viewpoint of Poon Hill. From Gorepani you go eastwards to Chomrong and then north again, entering the Modi Kola Valley up till the Base Camp.

    The Annapurna Base Camp Trek can easily be done by yourself if you wish to. It is possible to do this trek in all seasons, however, in the winter the Base Camp is sometimes closed due to the level of snow. In spring time the huge rhododendron forests are in full bloom which gives the trek an extra appeal.Many people only trek the circuit Nayapool-Ghorepani-Ghandruk-Nayapool, which is very rewarding in itself. This trek can easily be done with children as well.
