Want to explore a new trekking route in the Annapurna region? let's do North Annapurna base camp trek in the circumference of the Annapurna conservation area. It is off the beaten trek which was established 4 years ago in reference to expedition history recorded by Maurice Herzog in 1950, June 3. He successfully climbed Mt Annapurna starting from North ABC. The same route to the north base camp was explored in 2019 AD and declared as new trekking route in the Annapurna region.
