The route allows you to hike past traditional Gurung Village. It will take you to green terraced agriculture fields firmly engraved on Himalaya’s walls. Moreover, Mount Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) stands to highlight over the ABC trail. In the past few years, Annapurna Region has faced significant development. However, the routes to ABC remain undisturbed and natural.

ABC trek lets you walk on trails beneath steep Himalayan peaks and lush forest with blooming flowers. Rhododendron blooms into a red, pink, and white colour flower, enlightens the path during spring.
