Essential Infos

Accommodation during your trek:

Rooms are based on 2 people generally sharing a twin bed in one room, it is safe and clean but you have to use bathroom services outside of your room.

It is really important that you have to understand that the accommodation during your trekking will be very basic but clean and safe.

Best trekking months:

There is two main trekking season Sep. to Dec. and Feb 15 to April is the best because by that time you can easily explore beautiful mountain every day because of clear weather each day in Nepal, However, you can make your trip all around Nepal.

Fitness level and altitude:

The altitude of 3210 meters and the trek duration of 7 days make the Annapurna hiking classified as a short, sweet and best trekking route in Nepal. The trails generally ascending and descending both but it is safe and beautiful scenic view from each settlement.

So, you will sleep one night at 2850 meters which is Ghorepani, therefore, you don’t get altitude sickness generally and enough oxygen each day.

As a Himalaya guide we recommend that all trekkers exercise 2 to 3 times a week before you start your trek back home and also it’s better to avoid smoking habit if you are in it and drinking habit if you drink too much, so our porters will be carrying your big bags which means you will have your light bag.

The altitude of 4130m and the trekking duration of 12 days make the Annapurna Base Camp Trek classified as strenuous difficulty. The trek ascends very gradually when compared to all of our long treks and you only spend 1 night above 4000m. You are therefore much less likely to suffer from any altitude sickness related symptoms than the Langtang, Everest Base Camp Trek or Annapurna Circuit.

Essential trekking equipment:

  • Sun Hat and warm hat,
  • Headlight, SunCream/lip Bam and Sunglasses
  • Toothpaste/brush/soap and Gloves,
  • Down and another warm jacket long-sleeved shirt/t-shirt,
  • 2 piece Windbreaker trousers,
  • 2 piece Windproof paints,
  • Trekking boots and Wool/cotton socks
  • Metal Water bottle I better if you have,

  • Flip flops, Raincoat, and Rucksack
