HIGHLIGHTS
  • Beautiful views of the mountains during the trek
  • Relaxing time in Pokhara
  • A hot spring bath on the trail
  • A trip that defines four types of climate and vegetation within few kilometres of range.
This 12-day Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) Trek is a luscious mix of remarkable mountain vistas, traditional mountain village life and thick rhododendron and bamboo forest ecosystems.

Starting in the quaint lakeside town of Pokhara, the trail heads to Tikkhedunga and Ghorepani and continues through lush forests and farmland to narrow gorges overlooked by the mighty Hiunchuli and Machapuchchre (Fishtail Mountain).

The trail takes you to the heart of the Gurung and Magar cultures and their traditional way of life. It introduces you to a vast variety of birds and wildlife whilst offering you the most magnificent views of the snow-capped mountains of the Annapurna Range.

Our destination is ABC where we will be encapsulated by a mountainous wonderland, being surrounded by the icy peaks of some of the world's highest and most beautiful mountains.

There are challenging days to meet our 4130 meter elevation goal, from rocky trails to the ascent of 3300 stone steps to Ulleri, all will be worth the effort as you accompany these majestic mountains to ABC over an array of different and exciting landscapes.

Descending from ABC, you get the opportunity to bathe in the natural hot spring at Jhinu before returning to Pokhara with your adventures and achievements in the Annapurna Himalayas in your heart.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.
