Annapurna translates into “the Goddess of the Harvests”, is a section of the Himalayas located in north-central Nepal. Included in the Earth’s eight-thousanders, it is noted as one of the most precarious mountains to summit. However, the Annapurna Base Camp Trek enables you to spectacle this grand massif, in all its glory.

You will be in the midst of green fields and rhododendron forests, at a comfortable altitude, that does not demand extreme altitude acclimatization. This journey will lead you to the base camp, where you can see the snow caps of 12 mountains that are +7,000 meters.

The Annapurna Base Camp Trek an ideal trek for beginners who want to view the picturesque mountains with relative ease. The warmth of the residents and accounts of the enigmatic traditions of Nepal are riveting. The charm of the countryside is heightened with a panoramic view that is eternally imprinted into one’s memory.

The best season to trek Annapurna base camp is September through November and March through May. During spring season, the entire landscape gets covered with rhododendron flowers, creating an alluring vision. Going on the trek during monsoon season between June through August, is not advisable.

Joining the Nepal Hiking Team for this trek ensures a holiday that will empower you to experience the ethos of the fabled Shangri-la.

“I chose Nepal Hiking Team because of a recommendation of it by one of my friends and so decided to check it out. Upon looking into their website, I found lots of many different packages available. But I think the most prominent feature that stood out for me regarding this is the flexibility of the itinerary. There was a slight change of plan for me during my trek to the Annapurna Base Camp, and I was sort of worried that I would not be able to enjoy the trek to the fullest extent and might miss some of the really lovely places, but the people at Nepal Hiking Team were all so nice and understanding, they arranged everything and I still had the most wonderful of time without having to miss anything along my trek. Ganga was my guide along the trek, and he was a real nice person to be around. He helped me a lot during the trek, but most of all, he kept me good company. I think I made a nice friend on the trek there with Ganga, because we just seemed to be on the same page immediately when we met! He was an exceptional guide and made the whole trekking journey quite memorable for me and I am very appreciative of that. You know how they say that its the people who sort of can make or break the experience? Yeah, well, Ganga definitely made the experience for me, such an awesome person to be around. The trek was such bliss with him, and will forever be remembered by me!”

“I recently returned from hiking to Annapurna Base Camp and I am so thankful to Nepal Hiking Team, especially my wonderful guide Narayan Dhamala, the president Ganga, and my porter Bhim, for making this journey special and unforgettable. A couple months ago I decided to take a solo trip to Nepal and hike in the amazing Himalayas. I started looking for a trekking company and after carefully reading the reviews and feedback of several agencies, I opted for Nepal Hiking Team. The fact that they are rated #1 and they are also a local company made me feel good about my decision, and this was further reinforced once I started communicating with Ganga about my travel plans. He was always available to answer any questions I had. The trek to ABC was the best trekking experience I've had and I'm very grateful for Narayan, who not only was an experienced and extremely knowledgeable guide with great communication skills, but he was a kind, funny, and positive person. I learned so much about the Nepalese culture, the villages we stayed in, the Annapurna Sanctuary, and that made the trek even more enjoyable. When we would arrive at the teahouse we would stay for the night, I always had a comfortable room to stay in. The company has a very good reputation with the owners of the teahouses and this is very important, especially as you get closer to the base camp and there aren't enough rooms for everyone. At base camp I met a few people who had to sleep in tents or sheds, while myself and two other private groups with NHT, had a place to sleep in the teahouse rooms. Narayan went above and beyond to ensure my well being, making sure that I am eating well and that I am staying hydrated. We kept a consistent schedule and fortunately I didn't have any altitude sickness or any other health issues. I am already thinking about my next trek in Nepal and without a doubt I will want to organize it with Nepal Hiking Team again.
From the moment I arrived at the Kathmandu airport until the day I was dropped off, everything was coordinated so professionally and flawlessly by Ganga and his team. Nepal Hiking Team goes the extra mile and they truly make their clients' comfort and well being the top priority. I encourage everyone who wants to trek in Nepal to hire this excellent local trekking company.”

“The trek was really good with wonderful views and a great organisation. We saw a good amount in the 10 days we had with great views on the Annapurna and a pace that was perfect to enjoy the views. Would definitely recommend as the trek is not very hard and you still see a lot”

“The view of the Annapurna mountain ranges at sunrise is awesome. The golden glow of the rising sun on the snow capped peaks is very beautiful. The trek was organized by Nepal Hiking Team to suit our needs and time frame in an effective manner to adjust with our time and price. Our guide Ganga was exceptional. He treated me and my friend like his own family. Whenever I needed help, his hand was always there to support me and my friend. Moreover his kindness and caring nature is something we will never forget in our life time. We cant speak more highly of this company but we ensure you that the company will go above and beyond to make your experience safe, comfortable and exciting. I do love this place and really sure that I will come back again for this trip undoubtedly with The Nepal Hiking Team as my partner.”

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.
