How Difficult Is The ABC Trek? A Discussion!

As you embark on the Annapurna Base Camp trek– which is approximately at an altitude of 4130 m from the base, trekking at such a high altitude will always come with numerous challenges. You will come across plenty of variations in the weather and temperature. The higher you reach, the thinner the air gets. With that; you also have to trek through the whole strenuous uphill route.

As you reach an altitude of 2500m, there is a high chance that you will show signs of altitude sickness. However, for those who are both physically and mentally strong, word of advice is not drinking alcohol during your trek. Also, avoid sleeping pills. Furthermore; you will also come across a long and steep 3300 stone stairs, which involves a different level of complication altogether.

Most first time trekkers experience exhaustion at the time of the trek, and to overcome this difficulty; you need to trek wisely. Don’t try to overdo the walks. Consume a balanced diet and drink plenty of water. Also, be aware of your limits, and don’t waste too much energy as you continuously trek those rough and rugged trails.

Stay hydrated, and have all safety precautions with you! It will make the whole trek easy and enjoyable.
Furthermore, the Annapurna Base Camp incorporates an approximate distance of 115km which stretches to 10-14 days. And each day; you will need to walk 10-20 km (give or take).

Furthermore; if the trek duration is shorter, everyone will need to walk at least 6-7 hours every day. That will help them reach their intended destination faster.

If this is your 1st ever ABC trek, then we recommend opting for longer packages. It will allow you time to get ample rest and also enjoy the trek to the fullest. We would suggest you perform some physical exercises and training prior to the trek.

When Should You Take This Trek?

Probably the best time to embark on this wonderful yet difficult trek is during the Autumn (which is between the months of September- November). During this phase, you will get stable climate, crystal clear views and washed trails (due to the monsoon rains).

But if this period is not convenient for you, then the second peak time to embark on this wonderful trek is between the months (March-May). You will get a wide variety of vibrant Magnolia, Rhododendron and other Alpine blooms.

Furthermore, planning you trek during the Spring season will allow you to get a clear glimpse of popular mountain peaks such as Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Machhapuchhre and more.
