The Annapurna Base Camp trek begins from Pokhara, a beautiful city in western Nepal with some wonderful lakes. From Pokhara, we take a short drive passing through terraced farmland and local villages. Having reached the trekking trail, we make our way through old oak and rhododendron woodland, crossing sparkling streams, with beautiful waterfalls gurgling in the background, the universe of snow and ice beginning to unfold above us. This blend of pristine villages, terraced fields of millet and rice, in combination with the splendor of amazing mountains such as Machhapuchhre, Annapurna and Himchuli, makes this trek truly worth the effort. Moving up the Modi Khola valley towards the sanctuary, we get to enjoy some amazing views of the mountains and witness high rock walls with waterfalls tumbling down into the thunder of the stream underneath. As the gorge extends, we climb to the Machhapuchhre Base Camp on the parallel moraine of the Annapurna South glacier.
The relentless climb to the Annapurna Base Camp gradually reveals the full splendor of the majestic colony of gorgeous Himalayan mountains. When we finally reach our destination, we are rewarded with amazing views of the full Himalayan panorama. A short trek to Poonhill at an altitude of 3,210 m offers us an opportunity to get extraordinary views of another Himalayan monster – Mt. Dhaulagiri.

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?
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.
