ABC is considered one of the best treks in the Himalayan region.
The Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) (4130m) is commonly known as the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. This trek promises “in-your-face” unprecedented views of colossal mountain ranges, which include Hiunchuli, Machapuchare (Fishtail), and Annapurna South peaks.
The best time of year to trek in this region is in spring when Rhododendron forests are in full bloom (red, pink & white), their pink blossoms contrasting with the more rugged mountain scenery. Nevertheless, it is possible to do the Annapurna Base Camp trek all year round.
Here is a sample of soaring snow-capped peaks you will see along the trail: Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m), Mt. Annapurna I (8091m) Mt. Manaslu (8163 m), Mt. Annapurna II (7937 m.), Mt. Annapurna III (7555m), Mt. Annapurna IV (7525m), Mt. Annapurna south (7219m), Mt. Nilgiri (7041m), Mt. Machapuchare (6998m), Mt. Hiunchuli (6441m), Mt. Lamjung Himal (6986m) and Tukuche Peak (6920m).
Some of the mountains seen from ABC are Tharpu Chuli (5663m), Singu Chuli (6501m), Hiunchuli (6441m), and South Annapurna (7219m). On the trail, you will see numerous chortens (Buddhist stone monuments), prayer flags, yaks grazing, bamboo and rhododendron forests, and the unique Tibetan style architecture of this region.
The following information will give you some idea about what you need to bring for the trek. It is important you do not forget the essential items, as this will determine your comfort and safety on the trek. Equally important is that you do not burden yourself with unnecessary equipment on the trek.
(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend you bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfort and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom at lower levels- until you reach higher elevations, where the accommodation is more basic with bare necessities.
In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of these regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.
We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We use public transportation or local buses during the trek.
This can be a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! We have met people from all walks of life, shapes and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.

Thanks so much, Sherpa Expedition and Trekking company, his director provided me a very experienced guide Wangchu Sherpa for my trekking in the Annapurna Base Camp. He was very serious and had lots of knowledge about mountains, Nepalese culture and he taught me so much useful information about local people's lives. He always tried his best to provide me good service, he organized everything from Kathmandu to the end of my trek, perfect services. Wangchu Sherpa is a very responsible and friendly guide with whom you will feel confident. I highly recommended Wangchu Sherpa as a guide if you plan to come to Nepal.
