About Api Base Camp Trek

Api Base Camp Trek is one of the beautiful trekking journeys in the forgotten part of Nepal. The destination i.e. Api Base Camp is located in the far west region of Nepal and the district of Darchula. Anyone thinking of exploring Api Base Camp can experience the true feeling of trekking in Nepal and taste the feeling of walking in the remote and isolated parts of Nepal. The place is remote and most of the time forgotten by the people in the government hence the village has yet to see the proper developmental infrastructure. The village is so distant from the modernization that even the most necessary form of infrastructure which is transportation still has not reached this place.

The journey is short even if this is far off place but it could have been much easier if the facilities of any sort of transportation were available for trekkers with limited amounts of time. Nonetheless, even the remoteness of this place didn’t stop people from traveling to this beautiful destination almost a decade back. The moist insurgent played a huge role in making this place neglected from the rest of the world.
The journey of Api Base Camp is full of life. Even on the journey, you will meet a few souls. However, whoever you come across, they will greet you with a warm smile. The trekking route to Api Base Camp is difficult but not impossible as well. So whoever you meet on the journey, everyone will wish you for your good journey thinking that you are not familiar with the rough paths ahead of you. These souls are pure and knowing them while on the journey will make your trek even more awesome. 

The culture you encounter here is different from other trekking regions of Nepal. People residing in these areas are known as Khas people and their culture, tradition, customs, rituals, dialect are different from other Nepalese whom you will meet in the initial days of your journey in Nepal. Mostly Brahmins and Chhetris reside in these mountains so the cultural experience you get to experience here is different and realistic in every sense. If you have been to Everest Base Camp or Annapurna Base Camp trekking, then what you experience in this journey is quite different from these routes. 

Most of all, it is very interesting to experience and to learn about this particular destination which offers a raw natural and cultural beauty to travelers. The memories made while in this journey with Himalayan Ecological Trekking would last as an unforgettable memory. Himalayan Ecological Trekking especially specializes in remote area trekking so you are in the hands of experts who are familiar with every Himalayan corner of Nepal.
