  • Revel in breathtaking vistas trekking amongst the Annapurna Range
  • Immerse yourself in Nepali life as you trek through Gurung Villages
  • Journey into the heart of the Annapurna Sanctuary for sublime panoramic views
  • Experience two spectacular Himalayan mountain flights between Kathmandu and Pokhara
Starting and ending in Kathmandu, the Annapurna Base Camp Trek trip is a guided trekking tour that takes 16 days. You will travel through Pokhara, Bambo, Annapurna South Base Camp and 6 other destinations in Nepal. Annapurna Base Camp Trek is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

A classic trek into the heart of the Annapurna Sanctuary for sublime panoramic views. Annapurna is the 10th highest peak in the world. It was the first 8000 metre peak ever summitted, in June 1950 by a French expedition led by Maurice Herzog. The tale of this epic climb is told in one of the most fascinating narrations of mountaineering adventure in the book 'Annapurna' also written by Maurice Herzog. Our trek to Annapurna Base Camp is by comparison a far more tame proposition, however the big mountain views are still the same as we ascend through villages and terraced farmland to the alpine environments found at the higher elevations around base camp. This is a stunning trek in the heart of the Annapurna range.

“Absolutely wonderful trip! My first time trekking in Nepal and I was anxious about managing ABC but the porters and guide Binod, especially, were very supportive and well organised and we had wonderful meals prepared by Tika and so it was very manageable. An unforgettable experience! I would recommend WE and would use them again.”

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.
