Annapurna Base Camp Trek | Seek Sanctuary in Nepal Reviews



Life time experience

I love it !!! I did the helicopter 🚁 visit and is a mesmerizing experience the views are espectacular the mountains are beautiful!! One of the best views in my life !


Siddharth Gaur

Wonderful Experience

One of the best experiences in my life is trekking here. Will forever cherish this memory. The guides and porters from Index Adventure have made this possible, hence shout out to them great people.




Flowers of different kinds all over the way. The snow-white river in the middle of the ground is worth every step you walked to reach there. But the area near Deurali is prone to floods and landslides during monsoon so be careful when around that place.

Beat Trip

It was the first trek in my life .. we saw the best nature view. And Many foreign trekkers were there, Annapurna Base Camp & Annapurna Base Camp and its trek route was very ❤️😍



Challenging trip

The Annapurna Sanctuary Trek is of moderate difficulty. You will be trekking for 4-7 hours a day for over a week, so you will need to be relatively fit. The best way to prepare is to get as many miles underfoot on trails in your home country. and the best role of the Banbanjara team who guide us properly and get comfort
