One of the few treks suitable for all season, the Annapurna Base Camp Trek (ABC Trek) is an easy trek starting from Nayapul, one and half hour ride from Pokhara. Along with the passing through various levels of terrain and landscapes, it is the only trek that lets you enjoy the base of 7000 and 8000 m high mountain within a very short span of time.

The Annapurna Base Camp Trek includes hiking to Ghorepani and then to Poon Hill. This place is a hub for gathering Himalayan experiences and getting in touch with the local culture and traditions. Machapuchare 6,993m, Mount Annapurna I 8,091m, Mount Annapurna II 7,939m, Annapurna III 7,555m, Mt. Annapurna IV 7,525m, Mt. Lamjung Himal 6,986m, Mt. Hiuchuli 6441m are some of the charismatic peaks that you get to view in this trek.

Walking through the Gurung villages in Chomrong, you get to explore the untouched exquisiteness of hilly settlements and exploit the foreign styled restaurants and lodges. Annapurna Base Camp trekking requires 14 days, which may become one of the best experiences of your life because of the peaceful environment and green terraced land of rice paddies, not to mention the lush forests filled with rhododendrons. An amphitheatre surrounded by huge, snow-capped peaks will welcome us at the sanctuary after crossing the Modi Khola; the charisma of which is ineffable in every term. While returning, the service and facilities at Ghandruk, Landruk will make all the walking and climb worthwhile.


Trip Accommodation

Your stay in Kathmandu and Pokhara shall go long to three nights and two nights respectively, as a portion of 14 days long Annapurna Base Camp trek itinerary. We offer Three-star ranking hotels in both cities in our package, which is subject to change as per your request and requirement. Customized accommodation is easily available in these cities and does have the facility of online booking of your choice.  You could experience heterogeneous cultural existence to modern cultural adaptation even in your accommodation. It’s you to decide what to taste and what not to, and we could arrange as per your taste.

We offer the best accommodation based on availability during your journey, residing of 10 nights would be arranged in a premium quality guesthouse in twin sharing basis, which could be customized on request. Your accommodation would be facilitated with attached bathrooms and hot shower. As the altitude gets higher availability of such facility gets rare. Onwards to Ghorepani, you will get tea houses offering common toilets separate from the dining hall.

Based on the biological availability, houses and rooms are made up of woods with crafts and displays as the precious interior. Spotless and hygienic mattress, quilt and blanket are available at room. Even though extra blanket could be arranged on requirement; it would be wise decision to use your own sleeping bag for your sound sleep in freezing climate.

The arrangement of single supplement during residing could be done unless we reach to Chomrong upon payment of $ 160. Onwards twin sharing would become option less and should compromise with the availability. Commitment to providing a high level of luxury at higher altitude would be unreliable. So we request you to be ready to adjust with the availability if you are extremely expecting for the thrilling journey.


Food, Meals and Drinks on Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Do not expect menu offering varieties of cuisine, because carrying goods at higher altitude is truly a challenge where most of the shipping is used to be done by using cattle’s.  Our Annapurna Base Camp Trek package includes three-course meals for morning, day and evening. Your breakfast, lunch and dinner are subject to availability at tea houses serving across the route. Vegetarian meals are easily available and rarely offer non-veg also.

Similarly, we could get an offer of some more varieties on our Menu including, typically   Nepali, Indian, Tibetian, and Continental dishes backed with desserts and bakery items. It’s not sure that all are available at a location because different tea houses have a trend to offer different dishes in different seasons. The menu is highly relying on the availability of material to prepare varieties of dishes. Visitors during summer could have multiple offers and options in comparison to visitors during winter.  Journey in the high altitude area is always a challenge, altitude sickness is a common phenomenon, and symptoms could be getting like a headache. In such situation, you are recommended to take enough garlic soup which is tonic against high altitude sickness. Next to that, avoid alcoholic consumption, as it dehydrates the human body and increases risks of high altitude illness.


Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

Annapurna Base Camp Trek falls into moderate level if we consider about physical condition and experience requirements. For passionate trekkers, its moderate trek where you should have the ability to walk 5 to 7 hours along with lightweight day packs, drinks and other personal belongings. It’s well-known that walking in higher elevations is tough enough in comparison to walking in low lands. Physical fitness is highly considered during walks in higher elevations. But it does not require professional athletes. Stable health, average fitness, optimism, self-confidence, determination and your commitment to do as you wish are enough to make your journey successful.

You are not recommended to take courses of treks as it is of moderate type, but it would be an asset if you do have some experiences of hiking, trekking, swimming, walking etc. in past.  If you are willing to improve your stamina, you could try jogging, light exercise, walking for some weeks. Be careful if you try much at last moment may force you to lie in bed due to sickness and weakness.  Everyone is an amateur in trekking, so no need to worry about lacking specialized skills, because we are here to serves you at your every stiffness.

We request you to consult with doctors. Trekking demands stability in your health. It is mostly for those who have pre-existing disease or disability such as heart, lungs, blood, and other communicable diseases. Be sure that you are medically fit for what you are planning for and share with us if you do have some preconditions so that we could take precautions for the stability of your health during the journey. You are also requested to carry enough medicines if it has to be consumed daily, because all medicine may not be available at rural area.
