Annapurnas BC trek

The Annapurna BC provides one of the most stunning panorama in Nepal: Hiunchuli (6331 m), Annapurna South (7219 m), Annapurna 1 (8091 m), Annapurna 2 (7555 m), Singu Chuli (6300 m). It’s a stupendous set of faces dominated by the south face of Annapurna 1. At 4130 m, the Annapurna BC is the highest point of this trek which will take you over the foothills of the Annapurna range through glaciers, rhododendron forests and lush green rice paddies. May be one of the best trips for a first trekking experience in the Himalaya.
