Annapurna Base Camp Trek combines some of the most spectacular mountain scenery, providing a fascinating insight into the modern hill life of Nepal. This is a unique trek along local trails, through forests, villages and terraced farmland treats you to unparalleled mountain scenery, surrounded by enormous mountains giving you an inside experience into the Nepalese life and culture.

The trek to Annapurna Base Camp follows the Modi River and passes through dense stands of rhododendron and bamboo. By the time you reach the large rock overhanging, known as Hinku Cave, you will have noticed that the vegetation has thinned and the gorge narrowed to be only a few hundred meters wide. Steep snow-clad ridges falling from Hiunchuli on the left and Machapuchare on the right from the entrance to the Sanctuary. As we pass through the “gate” and enter into the Sanctuary, you find yourself in a huge amphitheater enclosed by a solid wall of snow-capped peaks.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek starts and ends in Pokhara or it can be tailored as part of Annapurna Circuit or Jomsom/Muktinath Trek.

“Had a great time on the ABC trek, it was truly an unforgettable experience. Beauty at every step of the way. Our guide Resham and porter Dhan were exceptional. They were always in good spirits, very polite and accommodating.
Both were a pleasure to be around. Resham was very knowledgeable with peak heights and the meaning of their names. He was always concerned for our safety and well-being. The beauty of Nepal and its people is breathtaking. Thank you ACE!”

“Magical journey from Kathmandu to Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) and back. Our guide, Nirajan, was fantastic, and our porters too. The entire team--incredible! We were always in the best of hands, whether arranging and guaranteeing our lodging during the busy ABC trekking season, or surprising us with fresh fruit after dinner, or just being patient, encouraging and in good spirits while we battled the never-ending stairs and "Nepali Flat" hills of the Annapurna Conservation Area. Grateful for their encouragement and smiles. I would highly recommend Ace the Himalaya. Already dreaming of when I can return for Everest Base Camp!”

“I had the pleasure of travelling to Annapurna Base Camp with Ace the Himalaya, with guide Braith and porter Sundeep. It was such an experience.
I was unfit, and so on the first day I was given the name 'steam train'. It was only towards the end of the trek that I didn't have to rely upon 'Aussie flat' to get my breath back. Otherwise, I huffed and puffed clean mountain air on the Annapurna Trail.
At the teahouses for the overnight accomodation, Braith would always make sure that I got the best room. For dinner, he would review my meal choices, and either nod or shake his head overruling them to ensure that I avoided tummy problems. And tell me of the teahouse quirky features ("Charge your phone now as soon as the sun goes the power goes").
And he walked without making noise and without looking at the ground with his hands behind his back. I called him "the monk".
The porter was even more vexed. Good looking and young, he would carry a huge load skipping along the trail and trying to find a wobbling rock so he would seesaw on it. Oh and he sang songs as well. And would hold me steady when I was seesawing at times.
Reaching ABC was a milestone for me. And tough, I remember Braith showing me that morning where ABC was and thinking we will get there by lunch - it was about 9:30pm when I finally reached ABC. I had spinal fusion surgery for nearly 10 hours 1 months prior to that. From the possibility of not walking to scaling the ABC. Its pretty good.”
Incredible trip with the best in Himalaya

“I have nothing but great things to say about the trip - it exceeded my expectations. From the beginning at the airport to the transportation to fantastic handling of the group to the trek itself - I couldn't be happier with the company I chose to trek with.”

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.
