Overview

The Annapurna Base Camp Trek is the ultimate trekking experience, known for its stunning mountain views and rich cultural encounters. This trek takes you through the heart of the Annapurna region, home to Annapurna I (8,091m), the world’s 10th highest peak. Our journey begins in Pokhara, the second largest and most beautiful city in Nepal. Known as the "Lake City," Pokhara is surrounded by mountains and serves as a base for many treks, including the Annapurna Circuit, Mardi Himal, Mohare Danda, and Upper Mustang treks. The northern wall of the Annapurna range is prominently visible from here, providing a stunning backdrop as we set off on our adventure with the Himalayan Dream Team. The trail winds through lush forests filled with rhododendrons, rice paddies, and terraced farmlands. As you trek higher, you'll traverse pristine landscapes inhabited mainly by shepherds and witness spectacular viewpoints showcasing the famous Himalayan panorama. The trek offers a perfect blend of mountain lifestyle, ethnic diversity, and moderate adventure.

The trek is not just about the breathtaking scenery; it's also a cultural immersion. Along the way, you'll engage with the local cultures and traditions of the Gurungs, Magars, Thakalis, and Lobas, who reside in charming villages nestled at the foothills of the Annapurna Himalayas. You’ll encounter Buddhist shrines, gumbas, and experience the tranquility of their unique traditions, making you feel as if you've been transported to another time. The trail follows the Modi River, passing through dense forests and narrowing gorges, ultimately leading to the awe-inspiring Annapurna Sanctuary, a colossal amphitheater encircled by snow-capped peaks.

Starting the Annapurna Base Camp Trek with the Himalayan Dream Team is a remarkable opportunity to challenge yourself physically, immerse yourself in natural beauty, and explore the diverse cultural tapestry of the region. With its majestic peaks, unique ecosystems, and rich cultural encounters, this trek promises a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Discover the wonders of the Annapurna region and create unforgettable memories on this extraordinary journey.

We make our ascent to the Ghorepani village. The name Ghorepani in Nepali means horse-water owing to its role as an important campsite for traders before it became a trekker’s stop. Ghorepani is an interesting place with small shops and stalls for selling local products and craft. The town has two parts: one in a saddle and the other a few hundred feet lower. We stop at the higher part of the Ghorepani village that offers panoramic views of the surrounding mountains including Annapurna South and Nilgiri mountains. Since Ghorepani lies quite higher than our previous stop, we begin to feel the chilly weather especially in the evenings.

A trip with the perfect variance between spending time in nature

We chose Nepal as honeymoon destination because we wanted to enjoy the magnificent himalaya. We got a trip with the perfect variance between spending time in nature, enjoying the vibrant cities and having some space to relax. Thanks to Indira and her team we were taken care of from the moment that we landed until after we were back home. All our needs were seen and immediately acted upon. Our trekking guide and porter were so very kind and helpful, according to us we had the very best if we compared with the people around us. Himalaya dreamteam is defintely worth it!

Together with the My Himalaya Dreamteam I made a trekking to Annapurna Basecamp. The group I joint was very nice and friendly and we hade lots of fun. Joining a group doesn’t necessarily mean there is no opportunaty to organise some things on your on. I went to a monestry one day early in the morning, so that was also possible.
Traveling with My Hymalaya was very conveniant.The trip was well prepared. It offers a lot of variety. We had good guides, who took good care of us and were very helpfull and caring. Also the porters, who carried most of our lugage, were always looking if everything was all right. So the whole team is doing its best so you can have a great time in Nepal.
I wil recommend this organisation if you are looking for: activity, flexibility, reliability and being surrounded by people who take care of you if you need there help.

Looking for a perfect organised trekking in Nepal? Don't hesitate and rely on the dream team of Indira. Transport, accomodation, guides, porters, everything is looked after for very carefully.
With a group of 14, we hiked over the thousands of steps all the way up to Annapurna base camp. Assisted by excellent guides and porters! The jump in the hot springs on our way down was a pampering moment after the never ending ups and downs of the Annapurna trail.

We were a group from Belgium and The Netherlands with 14 people and did the Annapurna Basecamp Trek via Poon Hill.

It was well organized by our guide Om who is also a very funny and caring man. They were with a crew of nine people (one guide, one helping guide and seven porters) all very kind and welcoming people who made the trip so easy for us. We also made visits in Kathmandu and Bhaktapur and everything was very well aranged. We had guides, transport and we could always contact Indira at the agency if there was a problem.

Keep up the good work Himalayan Dreamteam you are all amazing people!

When my partner had to be admitted to a hospital in Kathmandu with pneumonia on day 2 of our trip, Rik's Himalayan Dreamteam showed that they are more than worth their name.
Indira & Sameer did everything possible to put us in touch with competent doctors, adjusted our travel program daily to the circumstances, they visited my husband several times in the hospital and brought healthy food, there was always a driver ready to help. commuting between hotel and hospital... And when we had to 'swallow' the great disappointment that we had to cancel the trek we had been looking forward to on doctor's advice, they again adjusted our reservations and accommodated us in mountain lodges with magnificent views of the Machapuchare, Anapurna range, Manaslu… In short, we had a wonderful trip thanks to these treasures and are forever grateful to them for this. So yes, it still needs to be said, top organization 😊 x
