Australian Camp Trek
Australian camp trek is an off the beaten trekking trails in Nepal. The trail does not surpass 2000 m. in height and there is no fear of altitude sickness where as there is no compromise in the views we get from here. The culture, flora and fauna we witness along the way to Australian camp is beyond explainable through words.
There is no age restrictions to this trekking and requires no prior experience and requires effortless walking on the foothills of one of the most beautiful mountains Annapurna. This trek can be rejoiced year around and it offers beautiful blossoms of Rhododendron in the spring, views of lush green plants in the monsoon, the view of Pokhara valley in towards its south and not to forget the beautiful Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and other mountains in the north.
The crossing of locals, mules and traders on the trails, the crossing of villages intermingling with the forest, the beautiful settlements of the Gurung community in their thatched tinned houses and Machapuchrre (6993m) on the backdrop since Pokhara is just mesmerizing.
