  • Day 04 Trek from Himalaya to Annapurna Base Camp via Machhapuchhre Base Camp - 7 hours

    It is a steep climb through a much drier forest before reaching Hinku Cave. From here we can see the trail drop closer to the river before climbing again to Deurali, the most scenic stretch of the day. The vegetation is sparser, allowing magical views of the valley, the river below, and the sheer rock face cliffs above with bands of wispy waterfalls. Climb gently through a river bed then over a steep trail to the mountainside. The hike from Bagar to Machhapuchhre Base Camp is somewhat strenuous. 

    From Machhapuchhre base camp, we get excellent views of the majestic Machhapuchhre along with Mt. Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Annapurna III, Gandharvachuli and Gangapurna which is certainly a rewarding experience. The vegetation disappears on our way to ABC and the path widens as we enter the Annapurna sanctuary. From here, we get sensational views of the near-vertical south face of Annapurna towering above us. The cover boasts of a dynamic view without anything impeding the 360-degree panorama. From the base camp we again get to savour mesmerizing views of the Machhapuchhre, Annapurna south, Annapurna I, Hiunchuli and other peaks.
