Annapurna trekking region in Nepal has been wildly recognized as a naturalist’s paradise. Annapurna trekking/tour region is a very popular area that offers a dramatic trekking experience for trekkers from all over world.

This is a 9-day trek but one can do 2 to 21 days trekking/tour in the Annapurna region. The upper sub-alpine steppe environment harbors some of the rarest animals including snow leopards and blue sheep. Other areas of Annapurna trekking region are home to bird species such as the multi-coloured Impeyan, kokla, blood pheasant amongst a multitude of other birds, butterflies and insects. Many plant species native to Nepal are found in the forest of Annapurna trekking region. The Annapurna conservation area has 100 varieties of orchids and some of the richest temperate rhododendron forests in the world.

For thousands of years people of diverse ethnic backgrounds have scratched a livelihood out of Annapurna's steep hillsides. The advent of tourism and the phenomenal rise in human population has triggered environmental deterioration. In 1968 Nepal’s King Mahendra Trust for Nature Conservation launched the Annapurna Conservation Area Project in order to protect this pristine gift from nature.

Enjoy this 9-day trek through some of the most spectacular hills and mountains in the entire world.

Great hike
Annapurna base camp hike was nice. Honestly I was happy to go in November because it wasnt as crowded on the hike and the weather was great. Its a great hike if your not quiet ready for Everest but still want to see the Himalayas.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?

    How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.

    On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.

     

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

     

  • 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.
