Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Trek Overview

The Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) trek, also known as the Annapurna Sanctuary trek, is for the trekkers who are looking for spectacular scenery and a great trekking experience, but only have 11 days available for trekking.

The Annapurna Base Camp lies at a height of 4,230 meters and is where mountaineers start their summit of Annapurna I, the 10th highest peak in the world at 8,091 meters. The ABC trail traverses a variety of terrain ranging from glacier moraine and rice terraces to rocky stone steps and, along the way, offers an amphitheater of huge Himalayan peaks.

In addition to great scenery, the trek takes you through the villages of the ethnic communities of Gurung and Thakali, the latter renowned for their incredibly tasty Dal Bhat, also known as ‘Thakali’ sets. While this trek can be undertaken all year round, it is especially beautiful during spring as rhododendron flowers along the trail turn red, pink and white. The ABC is a classic trail and is recommended for anyone looking for a great trekking experience!

“Essentially I did two treks: the well-known trip to Ghorepani and Poon Hill, and then on to the two base camps. I am 37 and in average physical condition and I found the going tough but not overwhelmingly so. The main challenge is climbing endless steps, both up and down. Hardly any of the trek is actually flat. I didn't have any trouble with my knees and I didn't need the trekking poles I bought in the end but if you don't think you can handle the strain on your knees and thighs etc then you'd probably best look at a trek which is flatter. The first two days consist of walking up to Ghorepani via a series of tiny hamlets. In the sun it can be very hot, despite it being winter. The pre-dawn hike to Poon Hill was one of the hardest parts of the entire journey, mainly because it is done before breakfast and I felt quite weak and faint. I didn't think I would make it but I did in the end. The views at the top are beautiful. It wasn't freezing cold but gloves and a hat were handy. I borrowed a knock-off down jacket and used it during this climb and on a few other evenings but I could have done without it I think. After Poon Hill was one of the most beautiful legs of the trek, walking through pine forests along the ridge of the mountains with spectacular views and then later alongside a stream until we reached Tadapani. After this there were a number of days where we didn't really ascend much but of course there were lots of steps up and down while we gradually skirted around the hills until we reached the valley which leads to MBC. Expect to see more hamlets, some villages, lots of cows and mules and goats, some flowers, plenty of trees and of course from time to time, the mountain peaks. The final two sections from Bamboo to Deurali (3200 metres) and from Deurali to ABC (4100 metres) were very, very tough for me because I began to get out of breath due to the altitude. I was panting like I was running at top speed on the tread mill! My advice is simply to walk very, very slowly when climbing there. Try to take a breath for every step you take. (I was carrying 12kg on my back and it would definitely have been easier with a porter). On the way down it was much quicker. It took me 2.5 hours to get from MBC to ABC, but on the way down, walking at brisk pace, I did the same distance in just 40 minutes. So my walking speed going up was 3 or 4 times slower than coming down. I only stayed at ABC for an hour. The views are wonderful because you are surrounded by mountains and you can see (and hear) the glaciers. There are semi-frozen streams and huge boulders everywhere. I reached ABC on December 12th and it wasn't too cold but apparently I was lucky with the weather and in previous years it has been snowing at that time. That would have made things a lot more difficult. One of the problems I had was washing clothes and drying them because there was so little sunshine, especially as we got higher. In the morning shade persisted until well after 10am and then the sun would go behind the peaks by around 3 or 4pm. At ABC the sun disappeared at 1.52pm! A few items I brought with me which were very useful included a mini water filter (it paid for itself by the end), zip lock bags (to go to the toilet at night instead of walking outside in the freezing cold!), a portable clothes line (I dried my clothes in my room at night), oat bars (for a welcome snack and energy boost - these things aren't available in the trek), a high capacity power bank and a solar charger (you have to pay for electricity after Ghorepani), a microfibre towel (a normal towel would never dry!) and finally sunscreen spray (it gets very hot in the day). I wish I had brought more liner socks (I had only two pairs, four would be better). Four hiking socks were enough. I also brought far too many chargers for my cameras and batteries and those weighed me down a bit. I also forgot to buy a sunhat which would have been useful. I had my own sleeping bag and a thermal liner and I was never cold at night. During the day I relied on trekking pants and a long-sleeved lightweight base layer. If the sun disappeared I either added a wool-based layer or my fleece. I had a thin rain jacket as well and that was very handy for keeping the wind off, though it wasn't very windy really and it never rained.
