DIY Trekking

The Annapurna Base Camp or the ABC is a popular trek often for groups. This is best done at the end of the Around Annapurna Trek (AAT) because the altitude incline is very steep. Even in October can wet that runs down lake a trough down the mountain. Groups can crowd up room quickly. In the end you will be rewarded with incredible views.
