Api Himal Base Camp Trek

One of Nepal's least traveled Himalayan areas is the base camp of Mount API, which is located in the country's far westernmost territory and borders Tibet to the north and India to the west. The upper part of the Darchula district, which is remote and uninhabited, is where the Mount Api base camp trek is located. Compared to other trekking routes, fewer visitors take this path. This trip provides a great opportunity to discover western Nepal's true remoteness of nature.

This trek takes place in the API Nampa conservation area, which covers an area of 1903 km2 and is thought to be the habitat of several endangered species of wildlife, including the snow leopard, musk deer, and Himalayan monal birds. Additionally, the region is abounding in medicinal plants like "Yarsagumba" (caterpillar-fungus) and various varieties of "rhododendrons," Nepal's national flower.
