Australian Camp Hiking can be easily completed within just two days starting at Pokhara. Within two days of hiking, you can experience the warmth of nature staring at the mountain peaks.

Why is this hike named as Australian Camp Hiking?

The name Australian Camp Hiking was originated since the inhabitants of Austria began to camp at the location. Several Austrian campers began to visit the camping site frequently and later the camping site was started to get represented as Austrialian Base Camp.

Likewise, the name Australian Camp was named after “Thulo Kharka” which used to represent the huge area of pastures in Nepali. It used to be the area to herd buffalo and cows.

Similar to Ghandruk and Dhampus trekking, this area is also famous for Gurung people. Hiking to Australian Camp, you will get to experience the livelihood of local gurung people as you will be sleeping on their home stays and having their local cuisines.

Talking about the difficulty of this hiking trail, the base camp is located at the altitude of 2,400 meters above the sea level which is an average height for everyone. That is why even the beginner level of hikkers or trekkers can easily complete this trek without having any health issues.

However, the trail is steep; through a stone staircase for about 1.5 to 2  hours to get Australian Camp, situated on the ridge and having an incredible view of Annapurna South (7219m), Hiunchuli (6440m), Machhapuchhre (6993m), and Lamjung Himal.
