Annapurna Base Camp Trek
13D - 12N | Kathmandu to Kathmandu
The Annapurna Base Camp Trek, also known as the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, is considered to be one of the most well-known and rewarding treks in all of Nepal. It is also one of the treks that is comparatively shorter. It is well suited for vacationers who are short on time but yet want to find a way to experience both the peace and excitement of nature without sacrificing either. The walk is naturally extremely enriching and gives ample time inside nature as it brings us to the peaceful preserved environment via the Annapurna Conservation area. This is because the Annapurna Conservation area is one of the destinations along the route. Our journey on the ABC Trek is an interesting one that takes us through a variety of landscapes that are always changing. Our trip begins in the crowded and chaotic metropolis of Kathmandu and ends in the picturesque and popular tourist resort of Pokhara. As we make our way closer to the Annapurna Base Camp, we pass through a number of picture-perfect villages that are surrounded by terraced farmlands consisting of rice and maize fields. As we ascend in altitude, we enter areas that are covered with thick woods of rhododendron and bamboo. When we go even farther, we enter the alpine habitat, which is characterised by the near-total absence of vegetation. Glacial basins inside the Annapurna Sanctuary provide visitors with a panorama in every direction of the snow-capped mountains.Read More
The golden light is produced when the first rays of sunlight strike the shimmering snow, and this is when the magic takes place. It certainly is one of the most magnificent moments that anybody could ever live through. In a similar vein, the ABC Trek is an excellent opportunity to get familiar with the customs and practises of a variety of different civilizations. In the lowlands, such as Pokhara, Brahmins and Chhetris make up the bulk of the population, but Gurungs, Magars, and Thakalis make up the majority of the population in the higher areas. Spring (the months of March, April, and May) and autumn are the finest times of year to arrange a trip to Annapurna Base Camp, despite the fact that treks may be scheduled at any time of the year if sufficient preparations are made (September, October, November, and December). During the monsoon season, there is an increased risk of landslides and road closures, but during the winter months, it is too cold to go. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a more extreme experience, we can plan the hike at any time of the year, according to your preferences.

After landing at Tribhuvan International Airport, go directly to the hotel to check in. The remainder of the day is at your leisure until the evening, when you will have a drink of your choice with your guide while getting to know one another. Overnight in Kathmandu.
Take a flight to Pokhara. Drive to Ulleri, then walk to Ghorepani; it's a simple walk that takes around three hours. From Pokhara, use the vehicle or van to go to Ulleri. It takes between 45 minutes and an hour to reach Ulleri at a height of 1070 metres and begin the hike to Thikhedunga from there. Take a stop for lunch in Banthanti, and then continue on the route through Banthanti to go through some very breathtaking rhododendron and oak woodlands. The lovely Ghorepani may be reached after a total of a three to four hour hike. Rest your head in the lodge for the night.
An early-morning journey up to Poon Hill (3210m) for an incredible bright sunrise and panoramic view of the high Himalayas. The trip up to the viewpoint takes around 45 minutes and 400 metres. After seeing the dawn and taking in the mountain vista, make your way back to the hotel for breakfast, then continue by foot to Tadapani, which lies at an elevation of 25,400 metres. Rest your head in the lodge for the night.
As we make our way out from Tadapani, the path takes us further into the forest, where we can hear several bird species tweeting. After walking down for approximately 45 minutes, the trail goes very steeply downhill through the terraced field to Kimrung Khola, crosses the suspension bridge, and walks to Gurjung. After Gurjung village, the trail ascends up for approximately 45 minutes, and then it is a straight walk to Chhumrung, which is located at an elevation of 2170 metres. The journey from Tadapani to Chhumrung takes around four to five hours. Rest your head in the lodge for the night.
The path travels down 310 metres while through hundreds of stone staircase crossings, then it spans Chhumrung Khola on a bridge, and finally it rises up to Sinuwa, which is located at an elevation of 2360 metres. It is an easy stroll past rhododendrons that are decorated with flowers and ferns, and then it is a sharp descent down a stone stairway to get to the bamboo. When we finish our meal there, we continue our ascent to Dovan, which is located at an altitude of 2,600 metres. This takes us approximately an hour. Rest your head in the lodge for the night.
From Dovan, the journey to the Mountains will be a quiet one through the bush. Many people have the belief that mountains are holy and sacred places. While the term "Lady of the Harvests" is the most common interpretation of the name Annapurna, other people think that the feminine version of the name means "full of food." In Hinduism, Annapurna is "... the all-encompassing and ageless deity of the domestic kitchen... the mother who nourishes. If she were not around, there would be famine and widespread terror. Her most well-known temple may be found at Kashi, which is situated on the banks of the Ganga River." As her link with the provision of food (money) eventually led to her transformation into Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of prosperity, it is essential, from a theological standpoint, to show reverence for Mother Nature and to strive to cultivate environments that are serene and tranquil. Rest your head in the lodge for the night.
The valley flattens out and gets less steep as it ascends over Deurali. After climbing a series of stone stairs, we arrived to the location where avalanches had claimed the lives of many individuals ten years earlier. We must move quickly and get out of this perilous area as soon as possible. A warning has been issued for this area due to the possibility of avalanches; thus, you should continue hiking forward while being vigilant until you reach a secure location. As you go farther, more and more of the breathtaking White Mountains can be seen, and they are getting closer. At Machhapuchhre Base Camp, the route makes a sharp curve to the left and continues up the valley into ABC. Despite the thin air, it is a lovely trek up ABC. At Base Camp, you get a view of the mountains in every direction. Machhapuchhre (also known as Mt. Fishtail), which stands at 6997 metres, Annapurna I (8091 metres), Annapurna South (7219 metres), and a number of other magnificent mountains are all visible from this vantage point. Rest your head in the lodge for the night.
After soaking in the breathtaking panorama of Brilliant Mountain and warming up with a cup of hot tea or coffee, we sit down to a hearty breakfast before beginning our descent to Dovan or Bamboo through MBC, Deurali, and Himalaya. On the way, we stop for a cup of tea as well as lunch. Rest your head in the lodge for the night.
After descending to Chhumrung Khola and walking up the long stone staircase to upper Chhomrung, we then walk steeply down to Jhinu. Once we have checked into the lodge and had lunch, we make the descent to the hot spring, which takes about 20 minutes and is reached after walking up to Sinuwa for 30 minutes through a pleasant jungle. After that, we head back down to Bamboo. Have a relaxing soak in the naturally hot water, and then go back to the lodge. Rest your head in the lodge for the night.
After breakfast, we journey kimche. It takes around three to four hours to get to Nayapul by jeep, and from there we hire a private vehicle or van to get to Pokhara. Book a room at a hotel while you're in Pokhara.
Pokhara sightseeing include trips to the Santi stupa and the international mountain museum, paragliding, and other activities.
After breakfast, we will board our flight to return to Kathmandu. You may tour Kathmandu city at leisure. The night will be spent in Kathmandu.Pashupatinath, Bouddhanath Stupa, Basantapur, Bhaktapur, Patan, and many more.

As you climb to higher altitudes, the air grows thinner and less oxygen is present. The amount of oxygen in our blood is equivalent to the proportion of haemoglobin that is saturated with oxygen. At altitudes above around 2,100 metres (7,000 feet), the amount of oxygen carried by our blood starts to decrease. At the same time, the human body possesses both immediate and long-term adaptations to altitude that help it somewhat compensate for the shortage of oxygen.
A Great First Trek for Anyone Who Wants to Get Into Hiking:
A Great First Trek for Anyone Who Wants to Get Into Hiking:
Points to remember for safety in the trek:
- It is essential that you arrive at the starting point of any hike or excursion in the best possible physical condition and readiness.
- The hike is not tough; in fact, if you can keep both your feet and your mind calm and strong during the journey, you will discover that the hike is rather simple.
- Temperatures during this season range from a low of 15 degrees Celsius to a high of 25 degrees Celsius on sunny days, with a minimum of -15 degrees Celsius in the morning and at night for locations that are typically over 4000 metres in elevation. Spring occurs from February through the middle of June. When it comes to hiking in Annapurna, spring is the second busiest season in Nepal after autumn.
- During the autumn, the average temperature is 15 degrees Celsius, with highs of 20 degrees Celsius on sunny days and lows of 5 degrees Celsius in the morning and at night. Fall begins in the middle of September and lasts until the middle of December. In the Annapurna Area, the season of autumn offers the most favourable conditions for mountain hiking.
- The winter season lasts from December to February, and during this time the temperature may reach as low as -08 degrees Celsius in the mornings and evenings. On the other hand, the temperature may reach 10 degrees Celsius during the day when the sun is shining. During the monsoon season, there will be a lot of rain, and the paths will be slick, muddy, and occasionally they may even landslip.
During the walk, we will often have access to local food that is both fresh and sanitary. This is highly recommended. There are many restaurants serving a variety of cuisines, but those serving regional specialties are likely to have the freshest food. You will be able to offer fresh food and beverages with the assistance of our guide.
Sure, you are able to make a purchase of a bottle of mineral water while you are on the hike. On every hiking route, the majority of the tea shops and restaurants provide either bottled water or water that has been cleaned, respectively. The cost of everything, however, continues to rise proportionately with the height of the building. Even if you don't want to purchase the water, there are plenty of water sources along the route and in the tea houses, so you can fill up your bottles there and use water purification pills, water filters, or boiling water from the lodge if you don't want to spend any money on it. The majority of lodges supply water that has been filtered and boiled, making it safe to drink.
Yes Before you go hiking in the Annapurna area, you should make sure that you are covered by insurance. During the booking process for your trip, we even ask for a copy of your travel insurance policy. That seems like a fun experience to go on an adventure without having to worry about being hurt. For a walk up to 5500 metres in altitude, you need have insurance that covers medical expenses and mountain evacuation. It is highly recommended that you get travel insurance in your home country and check to see whether or not it includes coverage for helicopter evacuation in the event of an emergency when you are hiking at altitudes up to 5500 metres.
Generally, according to our schedule, we walk for around 6-7 hours each day. It is possible for this estimated walking time to alter depending on the fitness level of the individual. When you're at a higher altitude, it's considerably simpler to walk downward. Over an altitude of 4,000 metres is usually difficult, and your speed will be slower than planned when compared to lower altitudes.
You can take a hot shower, but you'll have to pay for the privilege, while cold showers are often provided at no cost. Nonetheless, we would like to make the suggestion that you do not take a shower while you are at an altitude of 4,500 metres or above, or that you take a smaller total number of showers if at all feasible. If you take a shower when at a high altitude, you put yourself at risk of getting a cold or being ill.
As a matter of fact, shorter treks in the Annapurna Area are simpler than lengthy treks. The Annapurna Base Camp Trekking and the Annapurna Circuit Trekking are both considered to be longer treks that need a higher degree of fitness. You do not need any previous hiking experience in order to participate in shorter treks in the Annapurna region, provided that you are in decent physical shape. But, if you want to go on a longer and more exciting trip in Annapurna that is higher than 4,500 metres, then you need to be in shape before you go. You may do this by getting some exercise every day or by going on a few shorter treks first.
Tea house trekking denotes that we will spend the night at the lodges and have our meals there. Beds at mountain teahouses are often simple yet comfortable. The lavatory and shower area are often located outdoors, and we are required to share them with any other visitors.
At teahouses, not only do we provide you a good vegetarian lunch, but we also ensure that food is locally sourced, freshly prepared, and hygienic. Throughout the path, you can expect to eat food that is both traditional to the area and representative of other cultures. We focused on serving Nepalese regional specialties, but we also included continental and western fare, although in a simplified form.
In such case, we feel it would be best for you to get a local number so that you may access to the internet and make phone calls. They do provide prepaid WiFi, but it comes at a somewhat hefty price. There is a strong network coverage available for NCELL Local cards in the Annapurna Area.
If you decide to hire a porter, he will be responsible for transporting your personal belongings. You may get an idea of what you need to carry on a journey by looking at our check list of recommended trekking equipment. Only our own personally important items are allowed to be carried in the day bag that you bring. You are welcome to leave any items that you do not plan to use on the journey at our hotel in Kathmandu while you are away on the walk. At this time, you will not have access to these items.
As we go out on our walk, we shouldn't worry about getting altitude sickness, thus we shouldn't worry about getting altitude sickness. While we are at a high altitude, it is important to remember that we have the ability to manage our attitudes and maintain a good outlook. In the event that we experience the symptoms of altitude sickness, we will either descend to a lower level or seek medical treatment in order to recover. In the event that the patient's health deteriorates further, there is only one course of action left: either we put the horse down or we remove them by helicopter and transport them to the nearest hospital.
If there is an emergency, then we will pay the initial charges of the rescue effort. These costs will need to be recovered from your insurance carrier in the event that there was an emergency. The skilled guides that are provided by trekking companies often have first aid certification and a fundamental understanding of various physical ailments.
To be able to pay for your additional costs, such as bar tabs, we strongly suggest that you get some Nepali currency and have it on hand. Although though the majority of major currencies are often accepted when hiking, it is strongly recommended that you bring some local cash (Nepai Rupee) with you.
In the normal course of things, IndianTreks anticipates that you will be the one to carry your own personal gear; but, if you want to unload your backpack, you may give it to the mule.
Charge of offloading Backpack
- 1,3000 INR (Indian Rupees), provided that the payment is made online ten days in advance
- INR 1500/- If you inform us after reaching Sankri.
- There is a need for a waterproof cover on the backpack; luggage and stroller bags are not permitted.
- You just need to make one payment, and you may go on the tour as many times as you want.
- If you schedule a trek with Indiantreks and are unable to finish that trek, or if you have successfully completed that journey and wish to do it again, you are free to repeat that trek an unlimited number of times without incurring any additional fees for doing so.
