The trek to Annapurna Base Camp begins after a short drive from Pokhara to Nayapul. We will walk through Ghandruk, Sinuwa, Deurali and finally reach the base camp of Annapurna, and thereafter and return through the valley to Pokhara.
Annapurna base camp is located in the lap of Annapurna South which has a perfect Majestic view of the Annapurna region and Mt. Fishtail - a mountain renowned for its beauty. The trail revert down to the valley at Jhinu hot spring where you have the opportunity for a hot and well-earned bath. From Nayapul we will take a short drive to Pokhara which will be the last ending station of this trek, before we go back to Kathmandu, where it all began.

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.
