Annapurna Base Camp Trek
14 days

Annapurna Base Camp Trek which is home to the 10th highest mountain in the world, a treacherous mountain massif that we all know as ‘Annapurna 1’ standing at 8091 meters, is a trip that’s a ‘must do’’ for any backpacker who loves the feel of adventure in the wild. This peak was the discovery of a French expedition led by Maurice Herzog in 1950s and today is a dream target for veteran mountain climbers, despite the lives it has taken.

Doing the annapurna base camp trek and ghorepani poon hill introduces trekkers to a whole haven of sublime nature where the flora & fauna along with the birds that seem to merrily welcome you throughout the period on the trails in this lovely region…even the animals hereabouts are shy but friendly. The journey to ABC gives us master views of some gigantic peaks that include Annapurna l, Annapurna lll, holy Fishtail, the Annapurna Fang known as Baraha Shikhar peak and Annapurna south at 7219m; even if we are not to climb these huge peaks, its very sight is mermerising as we imagine others attempting these peaks for the love of adventure. Our venture takes off with a short scenic drive from the city of lakes – Pokhara – to Nayapul & then we hike through the lush foothills as we wade through rich green forests, fertile terraced farmlands & come across colorful villages inhabited by a host of friendly ethnic communities that include the Gurungs, Magars and thakali tribes whose warm smiles captivate our hearts as we tread well marked trails as we go high into alpine territory where the air gets thinner & we see less vegetation but stunning glaciers & mesmerizing landscapes with Beautiful Trekking Himalaya.

We finally plod into Machhapuchre base camp at 3700m & several hours of further hiking brings us to our true objective of ‘Annapurna Base Camp’ at 4130m & up here its Elysium as we experience the stark beauty of unimaginable proportions…& we soon realize after all it was worth the go…the myriad rays of the sunshine at dawn is a combination of a dark golden yellow & rich maroon & we soon witness the love of God & the power of mother nature. Our video cams go on overdrive with some beautiful pictures to adorn the walls of your home sweet home to enrich your memories of a trip never to be forgotten. We then enjoy a warm fresh breakfast after which we head back to Chhomrong via Doban and Bamboo to reach the Australian camp and Kande where our vehicles wait to drive us back to the luxury of our hotel & a soft bed to fantasize on LIFE’S LITTLE ESCAPES with huge memories of Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

  • Physical Condition & Experience Requirements
  • 15 days Annapurna Base Camp Trek is a moderate for those travelers who can walk up to 5-6 hours (10-15km) a day on an uphill and downhill trail will find this trek fulfilling. It is best that we prepare ourselves for the Annapurna trek by morning jogging and 1 hours exercising regularly at least a month prior to the start of the trek. Trekking to the Annapurna Base Camp should be relatively easier for those who have experience walking/trekking in a high altitude environment. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skill is required for this trip. It is also important that we consult our doctor. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should inform Nepal Base Camp Treks before booking the trek.
  • Best Time to Travel to Annapurna Base Camp Trek
  • The best time to trek to the Annapurna Base Camp is spring (February to May) and autumn (Sept to first week of December). The temperature is moderate in these seasons and guarantees amazing panorama views through the trip. Although this trek can be undertaken during winter, the cold temperature might not be suitable for everyone.
