Pokhara, recognized as the most beautiful city of Nepal, is the gateway to Annapurna Base Camp trek. After a 7-hour bus trip to this wonderful lakeside city, the journey heads directly to Ghorepani via Tikhedunga and Nayapul. The trek endures through Modi River, dense stands of rhododendron forest and bamboo bushes to one of most beautiful viewpoints; Poon Hill. Popularly known as Photographer’s Paradise, Poon Hill lets you capture some of the best snaps of impressive Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. The astonishing sunrise view from Poon Hill is just outstanding.
Continuing the Annapurna adventure, the trail leads to Chommrong, Himalaya, and finally to Annapurna Base Camp. Be captivated by the scenic Himalayan views of Annapurna, Manaslu, Himchuli, Machhapuchre, Dhaulagiri, and other snow-capped mountains all around you.
To get to the Annapurna Base Camp, the trekker has to pass through many villages of different ethnic societies, cultures and lifestyles, and also through ridged forests of rhododendron and a wide range of flora and fauna. The subtropical forests come alive with a huge variety of birds, waterfall thunders and monkeys chatter from the treetops which makes the trek truly magical.
Don’t miss out on this amazing experience of a lifetime.

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.
