Annapurna Base Camp trek starts from the foothills of Annapurna range taking you through beautiful paddy field terraces, culturally rich villages and warm-hearted people with their contagious smile. This trip is also known as Annapurna Sanctuary Trek as the name was given by a British Army Officer, Colonel Jimmy Roberts due to its sacred mountain – Fishtail which is called Machapucchare in Nepali.

The trail to Annapurna Base Camp makes its way following the narrow Modi gorge filled with mixed forests and bamboo thickets. The majestic peaks of the Himalayas soaring high up in the sky are an enticement to for anyone planning to visit Nepal which boasts to have the eight out of fourteen 8000 meter mountains in the world.

Every year thousands of tourists come to Nepal to see, trek and even climb these spectacular mountains. Many of this trek is in higher elevation involving the risk of Acute Mountain Sickness and are also time-consuming. Annapurna Base Camp is a perfect trek which takes you right into the cradle of the Annapurna massif and the sacred peak of Macchapucchare.

Annapurna region abounds with many wildlife including the elusive red panda, common langur, Himalayan black bear, deer, and predators like leopards. As you approach Annapurna Base Camp, the tall trees are replaced by alpine meadows leading to the beautiful amphitheater of snowcapped mountains where the famous Annapurna Base Camp is located.

Nepal Poon hill trek and city tour

For anyone considering doing a Nepal tour, we highly recommend Binoy Rai, the owner of Mystic Himalaya Trekking and Expedition. We were really impressed by the efficiency, courtesy and the caring attitude demonstrated by Binoy in handling all our questions in such an easy manner. We highly recommend them for any future travelling prospects.

EBC 2018 – Amazing

I completed the Everest Base Camp trek with my wife and two great friends in October 2018. The trip was amazing with some of the best scenery on the planet. The Nepalese people are wonderful and so welcoming to visitors. Our trip and itinerary was perfectly put together by Binoy and the team at Mystic Himalaya and the trek superbly guided by Chogyal. This was my second EBC trek organized by Binoy and we’re already planning our return in 2020 to explore the Annapurna region. I highly recommend Mystic Himalaya Trekking and look forward to my next trek with them.

After my husband's 12 years of incessant nagging, I finally agreed to trek to Everest Base Camp. Having kept in contact with Binoy from his last trek 16 years ago, we had the privilege of trekking with Mystic Himalaya. The professionalism and care shown by the Mystic team was outstanding. From the moment we were picked up from the airport, to the moment we were dropped back, we were completely taken care of. Everything was so well organised, and our trekking crew, Chogyal, Pemba, Buddhi and Sujan were fantastic, every step of the way. We will definitely be back.

Wonderful trip to Nepal

We recently went on a trek and tour with Mystic Himalaya Trekking. It was one of the most adventurous and fun trips we have ever been on. One of the owners and our trekking guide named Binoy was the absolute best. I can’t even begin to say how informative he was about the area and how he attended to our every need. He has his own personal crew that hauled our bags and they cooked all our meals. They were so delicious. I would recommend anyone considering going on a trek to Nepal to check them out. I can’t imagine anyone else could be better than they were. Thanks for a memorable and amazing trip.

Absolutely the best Nepal Guides

My son and I had the privilege of trekking with Pranoy and Pemba in the Mustang district, and it was an amazing experience. What sets the Mystic Himalaya experience above other treks is the depth of cultural knowledge and history that the guides have to offer. In addition to breathtaking scenery, we got a fascinating look at the history, architecture, and culture of that region, presented by a guide who is articulate and very well-educated in his field. And let's talk about logistics. We managed to hit the tail end of the monsoon season and got a LOT of rain. With limited time (only one week), our Plan A was to fly to Jomsom and start trekking there. Since planes weren't flying (and didn't for 3 more days), Pranoy got us a driver. We drove for a day and were halted by a massive landslide. Pranoy came up with a new itinerary, and we got some spectacular hiking on our way to Jomsom. With each new "obstacle," Pranoy came up with a new plan and we had a superb trek. We were joking that we went through Plan A, Plan B, Plan C, etc. and were on Plan E by the end. Every bit of it was gorgeous and a lot of fun! With all of those changes, we felt safe and extremely well cared-for. Food was excellent -- supervised and sometimes prepared by Pemba. Accommodations were very comfortable and exceeded expectations. Best of all, Pranoy stayed in constant communication with locals and other guides to ensure our safety every step of the way. With this team, you are working with real professionals that have guided for National Geographic. I wouldn't trek with anyone else -- they are the best!
