Good trek with awesome views Reviewed Tour: Annapurna Base Camp Trek

“I did a trek to ABC at the beginning of January, when it was still a very late season, meaning there were fewer people on the trekking roads and in the tea houses, which was nice. It also meant that it was very cold. However, we seem to be very lucky with the weather and had some awesome views. Nothing to complain about. The trek guide was very professional, caring and friendly, so I felt very safe and entertained on the trek. Overall I had a really good trip as well as a lot of time to explore, playing cards and having a nice cup of tea.”

Mount Annapurna in sight, from Annapurna Base Camp

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 Annapurna Base Camp trek is a classic trail and is recommended for anyone looking for a great trekking experience!
