Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the most popular and trekked routes in Nepal. Second, only to the Everest region in terms of popularity, the Annapurna region is the most diverse and versatile regions in Nepal as it houses the wettest, driest, windiest places of the country. The trekking trail goes passes through beautiful and culturally rich Nepalese hamlets as we trek through cascading waterfalls, terraced farms, mystical rhododendron forests, lush grasslands to reach the base of the regal Annapurna Massif.Located in northwestern Nepal, the 55 kilometers long Annapurna Massif consists of one peak above an elevation of 8,000m, 13 peaks above 7,000m elevation, and over 16 peaks above 6,000m elevation. The Annapurna Base Camp trek and Pun Hill trekking offer ample time to rejoice in the close company of the mountains.

The trek will be an extremely gratifying one as we will be able to witness the majestic peaks like Annapurna 1, 2, and 3, Gangapurna, Himchuli and Machhapuchhre amongst equally alluring satellite peaks. The trek is also often described as the best of both worlds because alongside the Himalayan beauty and experience it offers to trekkers, it also opens the doors to the rich civilizations of the Gurungs and the Puns residing in the sub-alpine regions of western Nepal. As we pass through the diverse vegetation, elevations, and civilization, Annapurna Base Camp trek and Pun Hill trekking offer the journey to explore the unexploited nature and culture waiting for youin Nepal.

The Annapurna Base Camp trek and poon Hill trekking begin with a scenic 6-hour-long bus ride from Kathmandu to the Lake City, Pokhara. A tourist marvel in itself, Pokhara is also the gateway to most of the trekking regions of Western Nepal. From Pokhara, we will commence our trekking towards Ghorepani and Poon Hill – famous villages and viewpoints of the trail within the Annapurna Conservation Area. After savoring the splendid views of the western mountains and indulging in the rich traditions of the natives with a visit to the local museum, we will continue our trek northwards. After proper acclimatization, we will trek towards the sub-alpine, arid landscape with the views of Mt. Annapurna and Mt. Machhapuchhre looming in the backdrop.

After exiting Ghorepani and Poon Hill trekking, we will trek through the magical forests of rhododendron, birch, fir, and pine to trek towards our main destination – Annapurna Base Camp trek. In the jungles, we might have a sighting of Musk Deers, Pheasants, and Himalayan Thar.

We will trek through Chomrong, Dovan, and Machhapuchhre Base Camp to finally reach the base of Mt. Annapurna. From here, we can have 360-degree views of the soaring silver peaks, and colossal Annapurna and Gangapurna glaciers which originate from the massif. Since the Annapurna Base camp trek route goes clockwise, we will not be returning from the same route. We will trek down to Jhinu Danda from Bamboo, where we can take bath in hot springs. From there, we will trek down to Pokhara through Potana and Kande. The trek is of moderate difficulty even though it comprises of higher elevations. Anyone in good physical health and previous trekking experience is a good candidate for the trek.

FAQs

Will I get safe drinking water in the Annapurna Region?

Yes, you can refill your water bottle with boiled or purified water in the teahouses. It is better not to drink the water from the tap or the small streams as it might have negative effects on your health. So, to prevent that you should carry some purifying tablets with you.

How difficult is the Annapurna Region trekking?

The trek is moderate as there will be no climbing with ropes and all. Most of the trails such as Mardi Himal Trek and Annapurna Base Camp Trek involve long paths that might need you to go up and downs. So, it might be difficult for some people with back and ankle problems. But, with proper guidance and enough break times, almost anyone can complete the trek.

Is there a chance of getting altitude sickness during the trek?

The Poonhill trek’s elevation is 3,190 m while the elevation of Thorong-la pass is 5,416 m. Generally, people get the symptoms of altitude sickness once they pass the 3000m elevation. So, to avoid uncertain circumstances it is better to get a health checkup and get a doctor consultation before doing the Annapurna Region Trekking.

Can I and my children do the ABC Trek?

Yes, we have had many clients who have completed the ABC trek with their children. Our guides will make sure you and your children be well taken care of during the whole trekking adventure.

What kind of food will I get to have during the Trekking?

You might have heard of the typical term “Dal Bhat”, which is both fulfilling and healthy as well. Most of the foods you get are grown by local farmers. You might not have a lot of items on the Menus in the upper regions. You will get food items such as pasta, pancakes, bread, eggs, coffee, hot lemon, etc.

Can a solo woman traveler go on Annapurna Base Camp trek?

Traveling alone can sometimes be the best thing you can do for yourself. But, with our guide, you will be well taken care of during the trek. Our company keeps the safety of woman traveler at the top priority.

Will we be using tents during the Trek?

It is not necessary to spend your night in tents as there are several tea houses along the trek. So, we will not be using tents during the trek unless you want to have that kind of experience. If you have then you should probably let us know beforehand.

Should I need a porter for my trek?

Well, it depends pretty much on what trek you choose. Some treks involve a lot of difficult paths and routes so, it will be hard for you to carry heavy bags on your own. Hiring a porter can be beneficial as you can fully enjoy the trek without having a backache.

Will I be able to use my phone during the trek?

The mobile phone signal has reached most of the Annapurna Region. So, in case you miss someone from your home you can quickly check upon them. There are also many phone services like charging and recharge cards in almost every part of the Annapurna Region if you need it.

Is there the facility of ATM on the trekking?

Unfortunately, there aren’t such facility of ATM. So, you need to use the service before and after the trekking at Pokhara.

What if I get sick or injured during the trek?

Firstly, our guides will sort out the things for you. However, if there is an emergency then the evacuation through helicopter can be done. For this reason, travel insurance is really important for you as it will help to cover up the fees for the helicopter rescue.

What if I left the gears at my home?

You can easily get gears at Kathmandu. You can also rent the required gears easily so; you should not be worried much about forgetting the gears.

What kind of Guides will I get?

The guides you will be getting are all Nepalese. Each of our guides is experienced, knowledgeable, flexible and licensed. They are all highly experienced professionals and know how to care for our valuable guests.

What kind of accommodation will I get during my trek?

You will be resting in tea houses and lodges. These hotels and lodges are small but comfortable. You will get pillows, sheets, mattresses but in case you need spare blankets, you can ask for it. Bringing your pillow would be a great idea though. And some of you might not be comfortable to sleep without a hot shower. For that, you can get a hot shower at a certain cost.

Great Annpuarna Base Camp Trek

I and my wife met with Shyam Sitaula in 2008 year at our common first trekking to Annapurna Base Camp.He was not only our guide , but our hospitality and friendly guardian from early wake –up to late evening. After 8 years  of ours connections we can say that he to become our perfectly trekking guide and (it is importance ) ours  great friend. In this time we made 3 common trekkings  from 10 days to near 5 weeks trek  ( ABC , EBC with Gokyo , classic Annapurna Circuit  – all based on own plans ).We made with him also another trips in Nepal after trekking.Always all things are excellent  organized and all time we were in safe hands .But the great addition value to ours trekking was his friendly care in each moment of trekking and our long afternoon talks. We think that his new trekking business will be perfectly made and ours next trekking in 2016 we prepare and make with Shyam Sitaula and his agency.

Namaste!!!!A group of 4 of us have joined the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) trek in April 2014 which gave us a totally different and amazing trekking experience. We started our trek with anxiety and insecurity, worried of not being able to finish the trek or the most scary altitude sickness. Thank God that we have engaged with the team Himalaya who has made our trek so memorable and successful. Ganesh is a very experience guide who is caring, helpful, friendly and responsible. He explained all the details that we need to know before we started the trek, prepared us with the best way to avoid altitude sickness (even ready with medicine if in need), continuous encouragements whenever we were exhausted and felt like giving up, and even there’s one time my hand accidentally touched a plant with thorns and swallowed, he quickly got me some kind of leaves for curing, and it WORKED!

4 of us enjoyed our trek along the way with superb fascinating scenary and nature. 2 of our cute and nice potters who carried our 60kg of luggages are always ahead of us. We can be trekking under the sun, in rain and hail within a day and what a great experience to make us a stronger person.

Remembered when we were approaching the 2nd last stop of ABC (Machhapuchchhre Base Camp), it was snowing heavily that we can’t even see the trek in front. I was dragging my extremely tired and cold body to the next stop while Ganesh was rushing up to take care of me, guided me to the stop then rushed down again to accompany my other friends. He really gave us his best which we appreciated very much!

There’s one time we passed by the avalanche area and heard the sound of it coming. Ganesh with his great trekking experience guided us through safe and sound. While we came down from ABC, snowy melting trek made it very slippery. Ganesh was the one who used his hands and stick to “make” stairs in the snowy mountain for my friend who almost falling down the way to trek down safe and steady.. and i know she was so touched!!

There’s another enjoyment when trekking with team Himalaya.. that’s the delicious and “eat all your can” meals where we were looking forward every hours!! We learned Nepalise song from our guide and potters and play games with them after a day trek!

In short, this trek was superb and we were blessed to have engaged the right company for a very successful trek in life!! Thank you very much!

We had an amazing trip with Team Himalaya! We trekked through different scenery every day, and the views were breathtaking. Waking up to glorious sunrises, seeing beautiful sunsets, the changing landscape, all combined to make it the best holiday we have ever had.

Small company great service

23rd Mar, 2022

We were planning to trek in Nepal for the first time. Choosing a company took us time. Through our friend, we found out about Team Himalaya and enquired. Raj, the main man, helped us right from the beginning by matching activities within the trip so that they best suited our style and expectations.

We decided the Annapurna Base trek.The views en route, of the mountains of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri and of sunrise and sunset from Poonhill Base Camp were breathtaking.

We want to thank Team Himalaya and the team for the wonderful experience in Nepal. Small company and but great service, highly recommended

Amazing Trek to Annapurna Base Camp

7th Oct, 2021

Our family had an excellent trip travelling to Annapurna Base Camp. Raj and Shyam were very easy to work with to plan this custom trip. Our guide and porters were fantastic.

What a great picturesque trek entering the high, scenic Annapurna Sanctuary and towards base camp. It was worth a lifetime experience, although too much of steep ups and down, but the views and local culture of Gurung made the difference. The itinerary set by Team Himalaya was just perfect to enjoy marvelous time all along the walks. The guide and porters were fantastic and very cheerful full of smile made the whole trek enjoyable. I wished had more time to enjoy the walk, certainly coming back to Nepal joining with Team Himalaya for another exciting trip around the Himalayas. The guide was too good and very informative, which made the trek enjoyable.

What a great experience being in the heart of massif and towering Annapurna Himalayas encircled by giant peaks. A great memorable trek to experience in Nepal, the best scenic walk capturing wonderful sceneries. I was surprised the trek ended so quickly while enjoying the dramatic views on daily walks.

Certainly a recommendable adventure among all the base camp treks around the Himalayas, without much worries of getting altitude sickness. Although the trek lead to steep ups and downhill and very tiring some days. But the great views made all the difference on daily walks, an enjoyable and most exciting trek that I ever experienced. 

Thanks to the good service of Team Himalayas and its best expert guide, staff.

Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the most popular and trekked routes in Nepal. Second, only to the Everest region in terms of popularity, the Annapurna region is the most diverse and versatile regions in Nepal as it houses the wettest, driest, windiest places of the country. The trekking trail goes passes through beautiful and culturally rich Nepalese hamlets as we trek through cascading waterfalls, terraced farms, mystical rhododendron forests, lush grasslands to reach the base of the regal Annapurna Massif.Located in northwestern Nepal, the 55 kilometers long Annapurna Massif consists of one peak above an elevation of 8,000m, 13 peaks above 7,000m elevation, and over 16 peaks above 6,000m elevation. The Annapurna Base Camp trek and Pun Hill trekking offer ample time to rejoice in the close company of the mountains.

The trek will be an extremely gratifying one as we will be able to witness the majestic peaks like Annapurna 1, 2, and 3, Gangapurna, Himchuli and Machhapuchhre amongst equally alluring satellite peaks. The trek is also often described as the best of both worlds because alongside the Himalayan beauty and experience it offers to trekkers, it also opens the doors to the rich civilizations of the Gurungs and the Puns residing in the sub-alpine regions of western Nepal. As we pass through the diverse vegetation, elevations, and civilization, Annapurna Base Camp trek and Pun Hill trekking offer the journey to explore the unexploited nature and culture waiting for youin Nepal.

The Annapurna Base Camp trek and poon Hill trekking begin with a scenic 6-hour-long bus ride from Kathmandu to the Lake City, Pokhara. A tourist marvel in itself, Pokhara is also the gateway to most of the trekking regions of Western Nepal. From Pokhara, we will commence our trekking towards Ghorepani and Poon Hill – famous villages and viewpoints of the trail within the Annapurna Conservation Area. After savoring the splendid views of the western mountains and indulging in the rich traditions of the natives with a visit to the local museum, we will continue our trek northwards. After proper acclimatization, we will trek towards the sub-alpine, arid landscape with the views of Mt. Annapurna and Mt. Machhapuchhre looming in the backdrop.

After exiting Ghorepani and Poon Hill trekking, we will trek through the magical forests of rhododendron, birch, fir, and pine to trek towards our main destination – Annapurna Base Camp trek. In the jungles, we might have a sighting of Musk Deers, Pheasants, and Himalayan Thar.

We will trek through Chomrong, Dovan, and Machhapuchhre Base Camp to finally reach the base of Mt. Annapurna. From here, we can have 360-degree views of the soaring silver peaks, and colossal Annapurna and Gangapurna glaciers which originate from the massif. Since the Annapurna Base camp trek route goes clockwise, we will not be returning from the same route. We will trek down to Jhinu Danda from Bamboo, where we can take bath in hot springs. From there, we will trek down to Pokhara through Potana and Kande. The trek is of moderate difficulty even though it comprises of higher elevations. Anyone in good physical health and previous trekking experience is a good candidate for the trek.

FAQs

Will I get safe drinking water in the Annapurna Region?

Yes, you can refill your water bottle with boiled or purified water in the teahouses. It is better not to drink the water from the tap or the small streams as it might have negative effects on your health. So, to prevent that you should carry some purifying tablets with you.

How difficult is the Annapurna Region trekking?

The trek is moderate as there will be no climbing with ropes and all. Most of the trails such as Mardi Himal Trek and Annapurna Base Camp Trek involve long paths that might need you to go up and downs. So, it might be difficult for some people with back and ankle problems. But, with proper guidance and enough break times, almost anyone can complete the trek.

Is there a chance of getting altitude sickness during the trek?

The Poonhill trek’s elevation is 3,190 m while the elevation of Thorong-la pass is 5,416 m. Generally, people get the symptoms of altitude sickness once they pass the 3000m elevation. So, to avoid uncertain circumstances it is better to get a health checkup and get a doctor consultation before doing the Annapurna Region Trekking.

Can I and my children do the ABC Trek?

Yes, we have had many clients who have completed the ABC trek with their children. Our guides will make sure you and your children be well taken care of during the whole trekking adventure.

What kind of food will I get to have during the Trekking?

You might have heard of the typical term “Dal Bhat”, which is both fulfilling and healthy as well. Most of the foods you get are grown by local farmers. You might not have a lot of items on the Menus in the upper regions. You will get food items such as pasta, pancakes, bread, eggs, coffee, hot lemon, etc.

Can a solo woman traveler go on Annapurna Base Camp trek?

Traveling alone can sometimes be the best thing you can do for yourself. But, with our guide, you will be well taken care of during the trek. Our company keeps the safety of woman traveler at the top priority.

Will we be using tents during the Trek?

It is not necessary to spend your night in tents as there are several tea houses along the trek. So, we will not be using tents during the trek unless you want to have that kind of experience. If you have then you should probably let us know beforehand.

Should I need a porter for my trek?

Well, it depends pretty much on what trek you choose. Some treks involve a lot of difficult paths and routes so, it will be hard for you to carry heavy bags on your own. Hiring a porter can be beneficial as you can fully enjoy the trek without having a backache.

Will I be able to use my phone during the trek?

The mobile phone signal has reached most of the Annapurna Region. So, in case you miss someone from your home you can quickly check upon them. There are also many phone services like charging and recharge cards in almost every part of the Annapurna Region if you need it.

Is there the facility of ATM on the trekking?

Unfortunately, there aren’t such facility of ATM. So, you need to use the service before and after the trekking at Pokhara.

What if I get sick or injured during the trek?

Firstly, our guides will sort out the things for you. However, if there is an emergency then the evacuation through helicopter can be done. For this reason, travel insurance is really important for you as it will help to cover up the fees for the helicopter rescue.

What if I left the gears at my home?

You can easily get gears at Kathmandu. You can also rent the required gears easily so; you should not be worried much about forgetting the gears.

What kind of Guides will I get?

The guides you will be getting are all Nepalese. Each of our guides is experienced, knowledgeable, flexible and licensed. They are all highly experienced professionals and know how to care for our valuable guests.

What kind of accommodation will I get during my trek?

You will be resting in tea houses and lodges. These hotels and lodges are small but comfortable. You will get pillows, sheets, mattresses but in case you need spare blankets, you can ask for it. Bringing your pillow would be a great idea though. And some of you might not be comfortable to sleep without a hot shower. For that, you can get a hot shower at a certain cost.

Great Annpuarna Base Camp Trek

I and my wife met with Shyam Sitaula in 2008 year at our common first trekking to Annapurna Base Camp.He was not only our guide , but our hospitality and friendly guardian from early wake –up to late evening. After 8 years  of ours connections we can say that he to become our perfectly trekking guide and (it is importance ) ours  great friend. In this time we made 3 common trekkings  from 10 days to near 5 weeks trek  ( ABC , EBC with Gokyo , classic Annapurna Circuit  – all based on own plans ).We made with him also another trips in Nepal after trekking.Always all things are excellent  organized and all time we were in safe hands .But the great addition value to ours trekking was his friendly care in each moment of trekking and our long afternoon talks. We think that his new trekking business will be perfectly made and ours next trekking in 2016 we prepare and make with Shyam Sitaula and his agency.

Namaste!!!!A group of 4 of us have joined the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) trek in April 2014 which gave us a totally different and amazing trekking experience. We started our trek with anxiety and insecurity, worried of not being able to finish the trek or the most scary altitude sickness. Thank God that we have engaged with the team Himalaya who has made our trek so memorable and successful. Ganesh is a very experience guide who is caring, helpful, friendly and responsible. He explained all the details that we need to know before we started the trek, prepared us with the best way to avoid altitude sickness (even ready with medicine if in need), continuous encouragements whenever we were exhausted and felt like giving up, and even there’s one time my hand accidentally touched a plant with thorns and swallowed, he quickly got me some kind of leaves for curing, and it WORKED!

4 of us enjoyed our trek along the way with superb fascinating scenary and nature. 2 of our cute and nice potters who carried our 60kg of luggages are always ahead of us. We can be trekking under the sun, in rain and hail within a day and what a great experience to make us a stronger person.

Remembered when we were approaching the 2nd last stop of ABC (Machhapuchchhre Base Camp), it was snowing heavily that we can’t even see the trek in front. I was dragging my extremely tired and cold body to the next stop while Ganesh was rushing up to take care of me, guided me to the stop then rushed down again to accompany my other friends. He really gave us his best which we appreciated very much!

There’s one time we passed by the avalanche area and heard the sound of it coming. Ganesh with his great trekking experience guided us through safe and sound. While we came down from ABC, snowy melting trek made it very slippery. Ganesh was the one who used his hands and stick to “make” stairs in the snowy mountain for my friend who almost falling down the way to trek down safe and steady.. and i know she was so touched!!

There’s another enjoyment when trekking with team Himalaya.. that’s the delicious and “eat all your can” meals where we were looking forward every hours!! We learned Nepalise song from our guide and potters and play games with them after a day trek!

In short, this trek was superb and we were blessed to have engaged the right company for a very successful trek in life!! Thank you very much!


I just wanted to say that we all had a fantastic time – it was truly an amazing journey and a wonderful experience.
Our guide Dawa was excellent very good, knowledgeable and funny. Overall, it was an amazing experience I will never forget. Looking forward to trek once more with this team in the future. Can't recommend this experience highly enough.

Trekking to Annapurna Nepal

We had an amazing trip with Team Himalaya! We trekked through different scenery every day, and the views were breathtaking. Waking up to glorious sunrises, seeing beautiful sunsets, the changing landscape, all combined to make it the best holiday we have ever had. Our guide Dawa was highly experienced and obviously very concerned with making our trek as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Much appreciated. Everything from food, accommodation and transportation was arranged very professionally. Would highly recommend this trip with Dawa and Team Himalaya.

Amazing views and a beautiful sunrise!

We were planning to trek in Nepal for the first time. Choosing a company took us time. Through our friend, we found out about Team Himalaya and enquired. Raj, the main man, helped us right from the beginning by matching activities within the trip so that they best suited our style and expectations.

We decided the Annapurna Base trek.The views en route, of the mountains of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri and of sunrise and sunset from Poonhill Base Camp were breathtaking.

We want to thank Team Himalaya and the team for the wonderful experience in Nepal. Small company and but great service, highly recommended

Our family had an excellent trip travelling to Annapurna Base Camp. Raj and Shyam were very easy to work with to plan this custom trip. Our guide and porters were fantastic. They were always happy to answer our questions and teach us about their beautiful country. I will definitely be looking to book with them again next time I visit Nepal!

Amazing Trek to Annapurna Base Camp

7th Oct, 2021


What a great picturesque trek entering the high, scenic Annapurna Sanctuary and towards base camp. It was worth a lifetime experience, although too much of steep ups and down, but the views and local culture of Gurung made the difference. The itinerary set by Team Himalaya was just perfect to enjoy marvelous time all along the walks. The guide and porters were fantastic and very cheerful full of smile made the whole trek enjoyable. I wished had more time to enjoy the walk, certainly coming back to Nepal joining with Team Himalaya for another exciting trip around the Himalayas. The guide was too good and very informative, which made the trek enjoyable.

What a great experience being in the heart of massif and towering Annapurna Himalayas encircled by giant peaks. A great memorable trek to experience in Nepal, the best scenic walk capturing wonderful sceneries. I was surprised the trek ended so quickly while enjoying the dramatic views on daily walks.

Certainly a recommendable adventure among all the base camp treks around the Himalayas, without much worries of getting altitude sickness. Although the trek lead to steep ups and downhill and very tiring some days. But the great views made all the difference on daily walks, an enjoyable and most exciting trek that I ever experienced. 

Thanks to the good service of Team Himalayas and its best expert guide, staff.
