This trek is a popular trekking adventure located at Annapurna region of Nepal. Annapurna Base Camp Trek is also known as ABC trek, and it gives you an opportunity to witness excellent views of Annapurna Himalayan range including Macchapuchre and Dhaulagiri. Annapurna is the tenth highest peak of the world and being there at the base camp of peak is an achievement in itself.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is also an opportunity to walk across naturally beautiful landscapes, huge glaciers, and rhododendron forests, explore the rice paddy fields, local Gurung culture and traditions.

Another major highlight would be capturing awesome views of snow capped mountains Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Fish tail, Nilgiri, Manaslu and Himchuli from popular Poonhill view point.

There will be plenty of opportunities to discover flora and fauna too and enjoy magically blooming rhododendron forests especially during the spring season of March, April and May.

On the course of this trek, we will be staying overnight at clean, comfortable local lodges with availability of basic services. We will have 3 hearty meals per day and during the final days of our Annapurna Base Camp Trek, we heal our mind and body at natural hotspring at Jhinu Danda.

You will be enjoying excellent sceneries, nature and culture during this ABC trek. It is a moderately challenging trek and anyone with average physical fitness can join in.

I was planning to go to Annapurna Base Camp, but my schedule changed due to the avalanche. Thanks to the quick response, we were able to reach the Maldi Himar View Point. Also thank you next time.

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.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    There are no quarantine requirements in Nepal for arriving visitors at the moment.

  • 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.
