What the Adventure involves
Elite Exped’s experience in the high Himalayas is second to none. Our leader's record-breaking feats on the world’s 8,000m peaks are well documented, but we’re not just adept at handling the world’s most dangerous environments. Our hard-earned experience in the death zone filters down into all our expedition planning and preparation, and we adopt the same meticulous approach to every trip we undertake - including our treks.
The Elite Exped Annapurna Base Camp Trek follows an expedition plan put in place by our leaders and their handpicked guiding team. The 12-day itinerary starts in Kathmandu, where we take in the shrines, temples, and bustling bazaars. From there, we drive to Pokhara, the gateway to the Annapurna region, through some of the most stunning landscapes on the planet. We begin our trek in Tikhedunga, passing through Poon Hill, and Duerali before arriving into Annapurna Base Camp, 4,130m above sea level, on day 10. Our return follows an onward loop through Jinhu Hot Springs - a must for tired legs.
