Annapurna base camp trek is the most popular trekking destination among nature & mountain lovers. Fancy a getaway but cannot leave your work behind and go on a long trip?
Always wanted to visit Nepal or the Himalayas and feel adventurous for a short trek?
It is your first time in Nepal or you are wondering which trek to do – Everest Base Camp Trek – 12 Days or Annapurna Base Camp Trek – 8 Days? Worried about acclimatization, scared of flying small planes, or don’t like colder temperatures? Fret not! We have just the package design Annapurna short trek in 8 days for your easier Also Annapurna Base Camp Trek can be done in a week or fewer days if you can walk longer 7 -9 hours each day.
Annapurna Base Camp trek also known as ABC is one of the best short treks that will take you up to 4,130m, Base Camp can be reached by tourist bus/local bus and any private transport from Kathmandu to Pokhara and since it does not require a flight, it will be much cheaper, making it another plus point.
It’s worth taking a flight transport from Kathmandu to Pokhara and a flight back to Pokhara to Kathmandu has very limited time for holidays to Nepal. We design the program according to your holiday frame and the services requested.
This trek is best for beginners or people who don’t have much time for a holiday in Nepal and yet want to do a short and easy trek. This trek doesn’t require any physical train or climbing train. If you can walk each day for 5 to 6 hours, that will be sufficient to get successful on this trek.
At ABC, you will be looking at Mt. Annapurna 8,091m which is the 10th highest mountain in the world, and many more surrounding mountains such as the sacred and iconic Matterhorn of the Himalayas – Machhapuchhre (Fishtail 6,997m), Annapurna 3 (7,555m), Ganggapurna (7,454m), Gandharva Chuli (6248m), Fluted peak (6,501m), Annapurna South (7,219m), Bharha Chuli (Fang 7.647m), Tent Peak (Tharpu Chuli 5,695m), Tare Kang (Glacier Dome 7,069m), Khangsar Kang (Roc Noir 7.485m), Patal Hiun Chuli (6,441m) and so on.
The journey to Everest Base Camp has more up-and-down elevation gain which probably makes it a bit of a challenge – physically and mentally. It is certainly not for those who do not have a certain fitness level and it will also take a much longer time. In terms of altitude, Annapurna Base Camp (4,130m) is lower compared to Everest Base Camp (5,364m) by about a 1,234m difference so it will be a more suitable choice for people having difficulties coping with altitude or cold since Everest Base Camp trek will be colder and drier due to the higher altitude.

The spring season of March/April/May is the best for holidays in the Nepalese Himalayas. The sky and the weather are very clear and sunny in these months and the temperature is warmer. At heights below 3,500 meters, you can expect temperatures of 20 to 25 degrees during the daytime, although these will drop at night. Once above 3,500m, you should expect significant temperature drops at night and early morning, often as low as -15 degrees.
There is some rain in these months, but nothing severe and this really helps to bring out the natural colors in the varied flora and fauna, especially in the national flower of Nepal, the rhododendron.
This is the primary time for tourism in Nepal with trekkers and mountain climbers seen all across the country.
Nepal experiences its monsoon season during June, July, and August, and it can sometimes last until mid-September. Some treks are possible in mid-June before the rains really get heavy, however, visibility can be limited.
The rains bring other challenges and obstacles. Mountain flights are not so frequent, while landslides can block the roads. Trekking in mid-June is still possible but we advise against the classic treks such as Everest due to the risk of long delays at Lukla which could potentially lead to missing international flights. If this is the only season possible for you, then we recommend treks in drier parts of the country such as Upper Mustang or Upper Dolpo. We can also suggest other activities such as white water rafting or visiting the National Parks at Chitwan or Bardia.
With very similar conditions to spring, the autumn season begins in mid-September and runs to mid-December, and is also ideal for trekking. This is a long window of good visibility and so there are a wide variety of trekking options available.
This time of year is also known for its festivals, especially the Dashain festival/Tihar festival and Chhad festival. There are also long national holidays so many people return to their villages to see family, making rural Nepal even more vibrant than normal. There is little rain and the skies are mostly clear with warm weather. This does mean that the trekking routes can be quite crowded in the most popular areas so we advise booking early to avoid the disappointment of full tea houses.
The less popular trekking regions such as Manaslu, Tsum Valley, Upper Dolpo, Mustang, and Naar Phu are great alternatives for those who want to avoid the crowds at this busy time.
December to February is the winter season in Nepal. Trekking at this time is not ideal and we advise against anything that goes into thin air as snowfall is common and temperatures can be extremely low.
Trips that can be done in winter include trekking in the hills around Kathmandu, Ghorepani, Poon Hill, Nagarkot, Chitwan National Park, Bardia National Park, or experiencing a homestay in one of the local villages. The biggest positive of this time of year is the excellent sunsets and sunrises which can often be enjoyed in rural areas.
There is something for everyone at any time of year in Nepal and the team at Peace Nepal Treks is happy to advise the most suitable for your needs.
Check-list of personal equipment:
Below is a checklist of equipment that we advise people have with them when visiting Nepal. This is a guideline only and will depend on the type of trip you are undertaking.
While we always suggest bringing your most important equipment from home, it is possible to buy or rent equipment in Kathmandu where almost all products and major brands are available, often at cheaper rates than you might find at home.
This equipment listed is prepared by our long experiences in trekking. During the treks, our porters can carry approximately 20kg in total while we recommend that any trekker carries their own day-pack that weighs between 8-12kgs which would include a camera, snacks, and drinking water for easy access.
Joining group departures are fixed dates and guaranteed to depart the trek with a minimum of two people to a maximum of 10 people in the group. The benefit of joining the group is sharing the cost with lower price & share different experiences with other travelers during your holidays.
Yes, we have set planned joining group upcoming months and fixed dates. If you are alone or more people & still want to join the group, you can ask our expert once. He will write a quick response as possible if the dates are available as your timing frame and suggest the best as you wish and as a budget. To make sure that to issue the special permit fees, you should arrive in Kathmandu two days before. As this is one of the special TEA HOUSE TREK in Nepal, we need Annapurna Conservation entry permission from Nepal government to travel Annapurna base camp trek and TIMS CARD (Trekking Information Management System)

Incredible experience on the Trek to ABC Easily the best experience of my travels to date! Nir was very helpful in organizing a solo trek to Annapurna Base Camp with one of his guides. As a female traveler, I was a little nervous about how the experience would go, but I was immediately put at ease and couldn't have been more comfortable due to the friendliness and capabilities of Nir and my guide Kama Gawa.

Oct 2019 • Friends Amazing Team to Ensure a Fun Experience This is our second time engaging Peace Nepal Trek’s services, the first in Nov 2018 for the Annapurna Base Camp trial, and this time round a six day hike to Langtang Valley.

The next morning we took the bus to SyabruBesi to start our trek. Our guide, Prem, was quiet at first but slowly ... + See more warmed up and was great to be with. Along the hike, he provided us with Water Purifying Tablets and Altitude Sickness Pills. Anytime our members don’t feel too well, Prem made sure they are attended to immediately.

He allowed him to rest while the rest of the group continued, and assigned one porter to look after all his needs. After the hike, we returned to Kathmandu on the private jeep, and the next day Nir picked us up from the hotel back to the airport. Overall, we are very thankful to have engaged the Peace Nepal Treks team. They have been very attentive to our needs. Prem, our guide is also very experienced (16 years) and hence it was very reassuring to have him with us. Even though we have been with Peace Nepal Trek on a previous trip, they still managed to exceed our expectations every day with small yet unexpected gestures. You can see that they really put in a lot of effort to ensure that we will have a good trip. ... - See less

No doubt he is a very experienced & knowledgeable guide and we 100% trust him! He’s like our brother who always ensure we were well fed (serve meals & fruits daily) and taken care of (safety & healthy).

ABC Trek - had the best time! I recently came back from a trek to ABC with Peace Nepal Treks (late November- December 2018) and absolutely loved it! It was a private 8-day guided trek for 6 students. Nir and his team made the experience stress-free and effortless - they organized literally everything including accommodation, food, and transport - we didn't have to think about a thing.

Nir waited for us at the airport (our flight was late but he still waited) and went above and beyond to make us comfortable in Kathmandu - he took us around to find ATMs, suggested good places to eat, and even organized to repair one of our broken suitcases. He was easy to contact and very reliable. We were introduced to our guide Dupsang in Kathmandu and traveled with him and 2 porters to Pokhara to start the trek. Dupsang was a very knowledgeable, experienced, and trustworthy guide. He was flexible with our requests and spoke great English. He always checked in with us and made sure the last trekker was encouraged and that we stuck together as a group. Toward the end of the trek one of our group members became injured and plans needed to be changed, which he promptly arranged without any drama.

Quite uncomfortable for a 10 hours bus ride. Be sure to request from Nir or your guide for a physical ticket WITH assigned seatings when traveling by bus. To be fair, it may be due to the peak/holiday season and it was difficult to get seats.

Annapurna Base Camp with this Amazing Trekking Company Dec 2016 Sorry, this is a long post. This is my second trek in Nepal. I did an Everest Base Camp trip in Dec 2015 with another tour company. I was ok with it. So this time, I tried Peace Nepal Trek. My friend got a flyer through her email and forwarded it to me. She hadn't used this company but after corresponding with the ever-patient Nir for several months, I decided to try it. I was so impressed with their service. My Annapurna Base Cam ... + See more p trek begin in early December and lasted a shorter amount of time than I had booked. Only because one of my trekking partners was not able to complete the second section. More on that later. Great Manager/Owner: From the first correspondence I had with Nir to my last meeting with him at the hotel right before departure, he was warm, kind, extremely accommodating, and professional. So on a personal basis, I was sold. He is a very community-minded individual. He has partnered up with organizations to build a school and has plans for building an orphanage for those children who lost their parents in the earthquake, and also a senior citizens home. If this is your interest, please contact him to see how you can help. Value for your money: I didn't do that many comparisons shopping as I was sold on Nir from my first email and the reviews on TripAdvisor were outstanding. Before I received his name, I had looked into a few other trekking companies. While they were good, some were controversial, the pricing was a bit more than I wanted to pay. What I liked about this package is that I ended up paying for the food myself. On my previous Everest trek, the food was included. I felt I had more control over my expenses with the option of paying for my own food. Guide/Porters: Last year, my guide was competent, unfriendly, and a bit chauvinistic. (I trekked with my daughter. This time, I trekked with my two female friends). I cut my guide some slack last year as he lost a few family members in the earthquake. I still gave him a generous tip because he got me to EBC and back in a safe manner. His personality was not the reason why I was trekking. The porter was very friendly. My guide this year, Bil, the porters, Asal, AJay (not the way it's spelled but the way we pronounced it), and Raj were OUTSTANDING. They were friendly, kind, funny, and very responsible. Bil went beyond the call of duty. All 3 of us had different trekking speeds. Very difficult to herd the 3 of us. One was very fast, one was in the middle, and the last was very slow. Bil stayed with the 3rd trekker the entire time. Singing to her, chanting, pointing out different sites, keeping up her spirits, and just being a great companion. He had to overnight with her in another village because she was too tired to meet at the planned village. Another time, he hired a horse for her so she could meet up with us. Once, he ran up to MBC (from pretty far away) just as we were leaving because Trekker 3 forgot to pack her gloves and hat that was in the main backpack. He carried her pack and sleeping bag (in case she had to overnight without us). The porters were fabulous too. One injured his knee and had to retreat, meaning the other porter had to carry everything. We only brought essentials so the porter would have 1 backpack to carry for all 3 of us. He never complained, was still happy, and most of all, he gladly assumed the role of guide for trekkers one and two. The 3rd porter met us on the way down when we had collected all our packs. He was great too. Flexibility: Peace Nepal Trek is extremely flexible. I wanted to add Poon Hill, the hot springs, and ABC all in one 10-day trek. Nir worked out a very nice package for us. Although once we started trekking, it was apparent that we wouldn't be able to accomplish the Poon Hill portion. We were told we were barely going to make it up to ABC. On the way down from ABC, again, it was apparent that the trek was taking its toll on one of the trekkers. Bil completed and modified the trek for us. We took out the maps, and he started giving us options. He felt bad for the 2 trekkers and was willing to split us up so that 2 of the 3 could continue on to Poon Hill. At that point, we decided it was better for all of us to head back to Pokhara. Lodgings: The lodgings that were selected were great. In general, they were clean. The food was tasty. After talking to my daughter, and other trekkers, they said that of the choices that we had for lodgings, they picked the best ones. The trek: if you ask the 3 of us what we thought of the trek - one would say "easier, and not as cold as she thought", one would say "harder than expected. Trekking EBC was easier (just the altitude was difficult on EBC) but warmer, and more chances for showers", the 3rd would say "harder, and would never do it again". From my perspective, the trek was harder than EBC because of the up and down, or as they call it "Nepal Flat". There were many stairs and uphill on rocky paths. The downhills were also a bit tough on the knees. Lodgings: all had squat toilets, and only 1 had a western toilet. Most of the tea houses had the ability to take a hot shower (fee), and most had the ability to charge their electronics (fee). Wifi was available only lower down (fee). There were heaters for 150 rupees per person. We never splurged for it. We brought our sleeping bags inside the dining room. I would highly recommend Peace Nepal Trek for its kind professionalism, knowing that a portion of your fees is helping others and the value of the package. ... - See less

Annapurna Base Camp trek Being highly recommended by one of our friends, me and my friends decided to engage Peace Nepal Treks for our Annapurna Base Camp trek in Nov 2016. Nir and his team at Peace Nepal indeed live up to their reputation. Email responses were quite fast and Nir is able to customize our trip to meet our preferences.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek I had a great experience with Nir and his team. I got in touch with Nir over the Internet and he carefully replied to all my questions. Once in Nepal, they arranged a great itinerary for me! I was a bit short on time, so I had only 4.5 days to get up to ABC and back (which made the trek quite intense), but Prem - my guide - made sure to make it possible.

ABC Trek We had an amazing time trekking up to Annapurna Base Camp this winter (27th Dec 2015-8th January 2016).

Flexible itinerary Nir and the team made sure we felt right at home from touchdown. As I arrived later in the evening, Nir took my friend (who arrived earlier) around Thamel to see the sights. Our guides Bil and Bipin were the most amazing and accommodating hosts too.

It only took about 15 mins of negotiating logistics, timing, and pricing an ... + See more d we were set :) Throughout the nine days of trekking, Bil and Bipin made sure we were comfortable with the paces.

Amazing Nepal Experience As part of a university study tour last year we did a trek with Nir and his team at Peace Nepal Treks. The 5 days we spent trekking was incredible, with amazing views, awesome overnight camping spots, and really interesting stops at temples and other places of interest. We also had the privilege of staying in Nir's local village and helping to paint the primary school there. It really was an unforgettable experience, and the thing that made it most special was Nir and h ... + See more is team. They went above and beyond, both on the tour and on return to Kathmandu where we stayed for three weeks. Nir helped organize activities, day trips, and a flight over Everest during our stay. I can't recommend anyone more highly. Don't go with a big tour company to Nepal, the locals rely on your tourism to survive, especially after the devastating earthquake. I'm very well informed that it is safe to travel now in Nepal, so don't hesitate, to book your trip with Peace Nepal Treks. Give back to the locals and you'll be greatly rewarded! ... - See less

Annapurna sanctuary trek I think Nepal is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen during my travels. Especially the Himalayas are so breathtaking. I've stayed in Nepal for a month with a friend. Nir from Peace Nepal Treks arranged our hotel upon arrival in Kathmandu, the next day flight to Pokhara, and a wonderful guide and porter (my dear Shambhu and Tirta) for the 10day Annapurna Sanctuary trek. Everything is tailor-made to our wishes. He even invited us to his home to have dinner wit ... + See more h his family. Thank you nir. After the devastating earthquake tourists avoid Nepal. This I understand but to help the beautiful people in Nepal they actually need you to visit. In the past years the Annapurna Sanctuary trek and other popular treks were overpopulated by tourists (the only negative thing I could say about Nepal) so please visit this magical place enjoy the quietness of the treks and help the Nepali people get back on their feet. ... - See less

We can not express how fantastic they were at catering to us, we had wanted to explore Nepal after friends of ours could not stop raving about it and recommend we went through Peace Nepal.

ANNAPURNA BASE CAMP TREK Firstly for feedback on Maila and Asha. We absolutely have no complain about the two of them. They were great guides and good host. Both of them took very good care of us and we could not be any happier to have them as our guides. Maila even helped us to get a lower price when we were out shopping for our stuff and presents. So please do help us to say thank you to Maila and Asha. Secondly. What you can help your customer is to let them know a list o ... See more f equipment and clothes that they can get at Nepal with a price range. Example, Down jacket (USD 30-50) Trekking Pants (Less than USD 10) Third. It would be great if you can include battery bank for your smartphones/ tablets as part of the list of items that you would recommend them to bring since electricity is not stable in the tea house. Fourth. To value add your service. You can also include the following notes to your customers as they are preparing for their trip. 1) Application of Visa would be upon arrival at KTM airport. For 15 days Visa, 30 days Visa and 90 days Visa, the cost would be USD 25, USD40 and USD 100 respectively. Please have a passport photo and a pen ready with you when you touch down as you would need them when applying for your Visa. Alternatively you can have your Visa photo taken at the airport but do bear in mind they only accept Nepal Rupees. 2) We would encourage you to change for Nepal Rupees at Kathmandu as the rates are better. Also, bigger notes would allow you to get better rates. In another words, changing USD100 notes to Nepal Rupees as compared to changing USD 20 notes would give you a better rate. See less...
