    However, from Kande, it is an uphill trek to the Australian Camp. We hike through magnificent rural villages and dense forests. In addition, we continuously view the Himalayan Mountains as we go on.

    The Australian Camp is situated at a height of 2055m. We will relax and have some food there. Also, in the evening, we will see a fantastic sunset that is quite extraordinary. We have our dinner and spend the night in a hotel. Moreover, we can also spend the night in an outdoor tent.

Pleasant hike up to Australian Base Camp with Ananda

Had a great experience with Ananda in this 2d/1n hike.The hike-up takes up 3 to 4 hours on day one, low difficulty level. Ananda is a knowledgeable n experienced guide, he knew most of the fauna along the way n the tracks very well. He is also multilingual, humorous, helpful n attentive. He even offered to assist to carry mu backpack when the path is steep up. I got to know more on Nepalese livelihood via this hike. The Annapurna alps view at the Base camp especially during dawn n dusk are simply breathtaking... more so with Ananda as the skilled photographer. Thanks Ananda for the memorable trips
