We drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara on the first day of the trip. Your trekking journey starts from Naya pul. You reach Ghorepani on the third day of the trip and Poon Hill the day after that. If the weather is good, you will get to watch sunrise from Poon Hill before continuing your journey to Annapurna Base Camp via Dovan and Deurali. When reaching Annapurna Base Camp, you'll get a 360 degree panoramic close-up view of the surrounding towering mountain peaks, a view that you will treasure the rest of your life. On the way down you can relax in a hot spring at Jhinu before returning to Pokhara from where you will be driven to Kathmandu.

The Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the best ways to experience both the natural beauty and the unique cultural heritage of Nepal. During this trek, you will not only be travelling through mountainous landscapes, but will also get the opportunity to see villages populated by the ethnic Gurung and Magar people and get the chance to learn more about their everyday life.

“This is review and my personal impressions of 12 days Annapurna Base camp trek booked thru Unique Advanture with fantastic guide Dharma Subedi.
It was my first trek in Himalayas, and it was really visually beautiful and fulfilling experience. Technically trekking starts
near Pokhara ( Naya Pool to be exact - 1.5 hrs drive from Pokhara ) and last for 10 days, and because I was based in Kathmandu 2 more days were added for tourist bus ride between those places. The ride is on its own an interesting experience, and agency made sure seat was on the right side of the bus, allowing me to enjoy beautiful views. it takes 8 hours and road is quite bumpy, but defiantly worth it. I was accompanied by another trekker ( young girl from Hong Kong ) and her porter. Usually groups are much bigger, but beginning of June is off season and I was happy with this particular arrangement. My intentions were purely to disconnect from the busy life ( including internet ) and connect to the surroundings. I have also carried camera and gimbal to document the whole trip. Trek itself is not difficult, or technical, but if you carry your own little bit heavy backpack it can be challenging. You basically climb and descend hundreds of meters of elevation daily ( predominantly stairs ) oscillating between 2500m and 4100m for most of the time. One of the few people I have met on the way asked why pay for the guide when you can walk yourself. It is true, but I do not regret doing so in this particular case. Dharma is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable people you can hire in this area, and was really helpful choosing great places to eat and stay ( which were included in the price ). He answered hundreds of questions and interacted with local people, translating and helping to better understand their culture. He speaks good english, and he likes to throw a joke or two from time to time. Very positive and helpful person. Because I was slower than other trekker ( due to heavy backpack, age and different aim of the journey ) Dharma adopted his speed to mine and let other person and porter go first making both sides happy. Overall the whole trip was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. Both ways - as a part of the personal journey ( looking into myself ), and time spent on admiring and contemplating external beauty of the Himalayas.”

“Trek was great had some awesome views and perfect weather at base camp and poon hill.
Our guide Megendra did an awesome job of keeping us safe, warm, dry, and well fed. He is very ambitious, passionate about trekking and knowledgable for hes age.

We did have one problem during the trek with one of the guest houses in Upper Dovan, they had a rodent infestation and you could hear rats running through the walls and we saw one in our room. - not really the fault of the guide or company however but i would reccomend not staying in that guest house if u have the option.”

“Wonderful overall experience. Both guide and porter provided great and service throughout the entire trip and were always kind and caring to me and all other trekkers who followed me in the path to ABC. The Trekking experience was amazing - a journey through rich jungles and impressive mountain landscapes, the beauty of it all almost made you forget about all the stairs you had to climb and descend... - Food in general always good - the quality of the guesthouses varied along the trek.. usually the closer you get to ABC the more the basic the services become. In some occasions, I wondered whether it would have been possible to lodge at better guesthouses than the ones we chose... but that I guess is the only limitation of having to rely on others to book the accommodations.”
Great trek!
