Overview

Trekking in Annapurna provides you with unparalleled access to spectacular horizons of snowy peaks, and the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) trek combines some of the most fantastic mountain scenery with a fascinating insight into the life of middle hill Nepalese. The trail takes us through an ever-changing landscape of rice fields, misty forests and lowland local villages to the glacier. It offers a fine opportunity to surround oneself with Himalayan peaks and to witness the glacier basin of Annapurna Sanctuary formed by Annapurna, Machhapurchre (Fishtail, Himchuli, and Manaslu). This used to be a complicated trek due to problems with food and lodging. However, there are now many facilities between Ghandruk and Annapurna Base Camp along this trail only used by trekkers. Annapurna Base Camp can be approached by at least three different routes. Here we have described one of three options.

Highlights of the Trip

The Annapurna Base Camp trek is considered by many as one the most celebrated trekking routes and the first among the ten best treks in the world. It offers a fascinating insight into the life of middle hill Nepalese, ethnic groups from Hindu farmers to Tibetan Lamas, incredible views of many of the Himalayas' most famous high peaks, crystal clear lakes, and turbulent rivers with deep gorges and hot springs.

Sample Day on "Annapurna Base Camp Trek"

You will wake up eager to start your Annapurna Base Camp trekking day. Before breakfast you pack your stuff into your kit bag which is then taken by the porters and will not usually be available to you until lodge that afternoon. We are usually on the trail between 7.30 am and 8.30 am. Following a good morning's walk, we stop for lunch at around 11 am. Lunch is usually a one-hour break to allow for the trekker's meal followed by the crew's meal. This break also enables you to do your washing or take a short break, although with stops along the way, you will have a moderately graded trek. Speed is not important; stamina, confidence and continuity are. The evenings are spent reading or chatting with your associate trekkers and crew about the trip so far. A pack of cards is an asset on these nights; the crew love teaching various Nepali card games and learning new Western games.
