ANNAPURNA NORTH BASE CAMP TREK

Be one of the first to literally go where few people have been before! 

This trekking route is less than a year old and was only explored by the Annapurna Rural municipality (ARM) in 2019. This is a new and exciting destination in the Annapurna Ranges that is a full-on escape to a seldom visited region. Annapurna North Base Camp sits at an altitude of 4190 meters.

The region has not been exposed to many trekkers, so you will not find too many tea houses and lodges, but will alternatively sleep in tents in the region of Mt. Annapurna 1 (8091m), the world’s tenth highest mountain and most dangerous for climbers.

The Annapurna North Base Camp trek begins in Lete and takes around seven days return. There are some difficult parts of the trek, especially in poor weather. One of these places is where we cross the Miristi Khola (river). If the water level is too high and we are unable to cross the bridge, then we have to find an alternative way across the river. The second difficult part of the trail is when we cross a steep pass.
This is an area well known for Yarshagumba, a rare and unique herb that grows in the meadows above 3500 meters. It is a remedy for tiredness, chronic cough and asthma, impotence, debility, anemia, to build the bone marrow. It is said to be the most valuable commodity in the region at around $100,000 per kilo. 

On the trail, you will be mesmerized by the impressive views of Nilgiri Himal (7061m), Tilicho Peak (7134m), Mt Dhaulagiri (8167m) and Annapurna 1 (8091m). Interspersed among the mountains are rich blue alpine lakes.  

Highlights of the Annapurna North Base Camp Trek.

  • Trek to the newest destination in Nepal along new trails.
  • Spectacular views of some huge snow-covered peaks.
  • Rugged and exposed terrain.
  • Visit the lakeside city of Pokhara with its majestic views of Machapuchare. 
  • Bath in the hot springs at Tatopani.

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may not find comfort and better quality teahouses - without the attached bathroom at until you reach higher elevations, where the accommodation is more basic with bare necessities. 

Meals during the trek

 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.

Transportation

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. 

Physical fitness

This can be a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You 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. 

Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!
