Annapurna Base Camp Trek

ABC trek, also known as the Annapurna Base Camp trek, is one of the best walk-throughs of diverse landscapes and cultures, complete with rich mountain views, terraced farming, quaint Gurung villages, and a lot of wild animals and plants. Mount Annapurna is the tenth-highest peak in the world, with a height of 8901 m.

Annapurna Base Camp trek is a route that takes the trekkers to the base camp of this Mountain, which is 4130 meters. The trip takes 14 days to complete. We start from Kathmandu airport on the first day and end the journey by returning to Kathmandu on the 14th day.

You will start the journey on the third day by flying from Kathmandu to Pokhara. That day will be a rest day in Pokhara, and the following day we will proceed to Nayapul with a drive from Pokhara.

Nayapul is the starting point of the Annapurna Base Camp trek. On the fourth day, the trekkers will trek from Nayapul to Tikhedhunga. After resting for a day in Tikhedhunga, we will continue traveling to Ghorepani. We will also take a few breaks for acclimatization.

We will have an early morning hike to Poon Hill on the sixth day and a trek to Tadapani. After that, the trekkers will continue their journey from Tadapani to Chomrong. However, we will remember to keep ourselves hydrated and physically fit. The trekkers will again hike from Chomron to Dovan on the eighth day, and then they will go from Dovan to Machhapuchhre Base Camp.

The charming villages and friendly locals you will interact with throughout the journey will keep you entertained and encouraged. After acclimatizing for a day in Machhapuchhre Base Camp, the trek will continue to Annapurna Base Camp, our final destination.

Celebrate the successful climb on the Annapurna base camp and get ready to trek back to Dovan. From Dovan, the trekkers will hike to the Jhinu Dada, where they will experience the beauty of the natural hot spring.

Now, as you have gone through one of the best trekking experiences in Nepal, it is time to return to Nayapul and Pokhara. We will stay for a day at Pokhara, and then on the 14th day, the trekkers will depart from Pokhara to Kathmandu.

So pack your bags, and get ready mentally and physically to experience one of the best trekking trials in Nepal. The Annapurna Base Camp hike is also approachable, less costly, and shorter. Even more, value is added to the Annapurna Base Camp hike by the legacy of the Annapurna range and the legends around its climbing history.

Best Time for Annapurna Base Camp Trek

If you are a true adventurer or outdoor enthusiast, seasons are never a barrier to trekking. However, any trekker should certainly checkout for the correct time and way to plan anything. The same goes for the Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

The ideal months for trekking on the Annapurna Circuit are generally viewed as April and May or October and November. It’s not too chilly when traveling to high altitudes throughout these second seasons because the weather is style and dry. Given the number of trekkers from all over the world climbing the Himalayas during this second season, it’s also the busiest time for being on the trail.

Trekking is feasible throughout the rest of the calendar year, but you’ll have to be more prepared for bad weather. Sunny skies and magnificent views are also available during the winter, from December to March. The trail may be muddy, and landslides are more frequent during the monsoon season, which lasts from June to August.

It is essential to keep yourself ready to hike in this area in any season. Even if you plan to walk in the summer season, remember that ABC is a cold area. So be prepared to experience the chilling cold temperature.
