Australian Camp Trekking -7 days
Australian Camp Trekking encompasses magnificent trek via picturesque settlements, terraced fields, friendly people, lush rhododendron and alluring mountain peaks. Australian Camp Trekking trail is located just above Pokhara valley and it is a rewarding choice for the beginners.

All these three viewpoints are popular in Annapurna region trekking for breathtaking mountain and stunning sunrise view. We capture stunning Machhapuchhre, Annapurna, Himchuli, Gangapurna, Ganehs Himal, Manaslu and Dhaulagiri in Australian Camp Trekking.
Australian Camp Trekking begins from Pokhara, Ghattekulo or Phedi. We first take one hour drive from Pokhara to Phedi or Ghattekulo and begin our hiking all the way up till we get Dhampus. Our further trek via lush rhododendron takes us to Australian Camp. We celebrate magnificent mountain panorama and trek to Sarangkot to see stunning sunrise and mountain peaks.

Best Time to Travel
Autumn (Sept. to Nov.) and spring (March to May) are the best time for Trekking. The weather is delightful and pleasant during autumn. The mountain views are astonishing.
The hills are wrapped with beautiful flowering rhododendron during spring. Majority of the trekkers find spring best time to trek to Australian Camp since they love to see flowering rhododendron.
Winter( Dec-Feb) will be very harsh due to cold and cloudy weather which hide the mountain peaks.
Summer will be too hot for some trekkers. Heavy rainfall occurs and disturbs the transportation and even walk in the mountain.
