HIGHLIGHTS
  • Trek to two base camps: Machhapuchhre Base Camp and Annapurna Base Camp (ABC)

  • Spend nights in cozy teahouses and immerse yourself in the local Gurung culture
  • Travel to the picturesque Lake City of Pokhara
The trek to the Annapurna Base Camp is one of the most popular treks in Nepal, and for good reason. The 11-day trek takes you on an unforgettable journey through the Annapurna Sanctuary and to the Himalayas. On the trek, you will pass through numerous lush valleys, cascading waterfalls, quaint villages and blooming rhododendron forests to the lap of the mighty Annapurna Range.

Autumn (September to November) and spring (March to May) are the best seasons for the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding, clear views of the snowcapped mountains. If you wish to avoid crowds and enjoy some alone time in nature, then taking this trip during winter (December to February) could also be an option. However, the temperature during winters are harsh, while there are chances of rain during summer or monsoon seasons (June to August).

This 11-day Annapurna Base Camp Trek is a relatively shorter trip for time-pressed travelers. If you have the option to stay a while longer, you can opt of our other longer treks.

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.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.

  • When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?

    We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
