Overview And Highlights

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 and also Annapurna Base Camp Trek can be done in a week or fewer days if you can walk longer 7 -9 hours each day. 

How to travel to Annapurna Base Camp?

Annapurna Base Camp trek is also known as ABC is one of the best short treks where it 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. 

 

Who can trek to Annapurna Base Camp?

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 success on this trek.

Mountains are seen from Annapurna Base Camp

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. 

Which trek is best, Everest Base Camp or Annapurna Base Camp?

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 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.

Additional Information

Four Seasons of Trekking in Nepal
__________________________________

Spring: March-May

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.

Summer: June – August

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.

Autumn: September – November

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.

Winter: December – February

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 HillNagarkot, Chitwan National ParkBardia 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.

Trip Reviews (1)

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 of 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.
