Annapurna Base Camp Trek, the heart of Annapurna Region

Annapurna Base Camp Trek takes you to one of Nepal’s oldest and most popular trekking trails. The first trekkers to Nepal had trodden on these paths. Take the same trail taken by the pioneers.  Visit settlements of the valiant Gurkha warriors and set foot on Annapurna Base Camp. The trek to Annapurna Base Camp leads you from the verdant hills to a wondrous world of snow and ice. Step on a glacial sanctuary fortified by the spectacular Annapurna Massif.  Celebrate the incomparable beauty of the Himalayas at ABC. You lie in a frozen ring of 7000 and 8000-meter peaks including Annapurna I, the tenth highest peak in the world.

Your Annapurna Base Camp Trek starts from Kimchi village. From the first day’s trek to the last, our seasoned trek leader will be there to lend support and guidance. Hike past traditional Gurung villages and green terraced fields neatly sculpted on mountainsides. The forked summit of Machhapuchhre (Fishtail Peak) looms over the trail. Annapurna Region has seen major development in the past few years, yet the trail to Annapurna Base Camp remains untouched. It is a joy to walk beneath soaring Himalayan peaks and trees laden with flowers. During spring the trail bursts into a profusion of pink, red and white rhododendron blooms. In addition, on the last leg of your trek, enjoy a relaxing dip at Jhinu Danda’s hot springs. Finally in Pokhara, get nostalgic at Phewa Lake. Gaze at the reflection of peaks under whose shadows you had walked.

If you are reasonably fit and looking for a high altitude walk lasting for just over a week, then this short Annapurna trek is just right for you.  Within a short duration of eleven days, you will be able to reach an elevation of 4310m, cross two base camps (ABC and Machhapuchhre Base Camp) and stand at a natural amphitheater, close to some of the world’s highest peaks.  But if you are looking for something challenging, then we have our Annapurna Circuit Trek which involves a crossing of a high mountain pass, Thorung La, at 5,460m. Covering the circuit will let you experience the unique Bhotia culture and dramatic landscapes. If you have fitness issues but still want an Annapurna experience, then our Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is ideal for you. 

Best Time To Go

Spring (March to May) and autumn (late September to November) are the ideal seasons for Annapurna Base Camp trekking. The daytime temperature is just perfect during this time. It is neither too hot nor too cold during these times. While an autumn trek promises clear skies and stunning mountain vistas, a Spring trek will let you experience the first blooms of the season. Walk on a trail filled with colorful rhododendron trees. Nights on the mountains are usually cold. Above 4,000 meters, you can expect nighttime temperatures to drop as low as -10 degrees

Why Annapurna Base Camp Trek?

  • Follow a classic route to Annapurna Base Camp in the Annapurna Region
  • Visit the spectacular Annapurna Sanctuary
  • Stand beneath the Annapurna Massif, including Annapurna I (8091m)
  • Walk through mountain villages of the brave Gurkha soldiers
  • Sample Gurung hospitality
  • Enjoy a relaxing soak at Jhinu Danda’s  natural hot spring

 Is this trip suitable for you?

  • You can do this trek if you are reasonably fit and are used to walking on hilly terrain. Beginners can also do this trek.   
  • ABC Trek is easier and shorter than other high altitude treks.
  • The highest point reached during the trek is the Annapurna Base Camp at 4130m.
  • You will have to trek for 8 days on an uphill and downhill trail.
  • Each day you will have to walk for 5 to 6 hours. You stop for lunch at a local teahouse. At the end of the day you stop at a comfortable teahouse/mountain lodge.
  • The route crosses a typical Nepalese countryside (terraced fields, mountainside villages), rhododendron forests, two base camps and a hot spring.
  • You get to enjoy phenomenal views of Annapurna Massif without technical climbing.

   Standard or Deluxe - Choose your travel style!

Planning a vacation calls for many decisions. One of the easiest ways to travel is to book with a travel company and let the experts take care of the planning and logistics. But some travelers want the freedom to explore options that packaged tours rarely offer. Taking into account the needs of an average traveler, we have designed two packages - Standard and Deluxe. A Standard Package offers a combination of services at a lower price and freedom to do certain things your own way (for instance, choosing your own accommodation in the city). Choose a Deluxe Package, if you want to take the stress out of planning your trip. After booking a Deluxe Package, you can rest easy knowing that the experts are there to plan your holiday. If you have zeroed in on your destination, all you have to do is select the package that suits your travel style and book your trip!

A briefing by your trek leader on your Annapurna adventure will follow.  Listen carefully as your trek leader describes in detail the trail and what to expect during the trek. Further check your gears for the final time. If you have forgotten any item you can buy or hire it from any of the shops selling trekking gear. Get suggestions from your trek leader. Later head to the lively tourist hub of Thamel. We recommend you to schedule your arrival to Kathmandu in the morning or during the day, so as to enable you to attend the group briefing. Overnight in Kathmandu.

Get up early and prepare to leave Kathmandu. From the domestic airport in Kathmandu take a scenic flight to Pokhara, a pretty lakeside town.  On reaching Pokhara, board a vehicle and drive to Kimchi. A two and a half hours drive brings you to this small settlement from where your trek begins.  Climb on well-laid stone steps all the way to Ghandruk, a traditional Gurung village and home to brave Gurkha soldiers. Explore the village. There are many interesting places you can head to, like the Gurung Museum for instance. There’s also a Buddhist Monastery nearby. Immerse yourself in the local mountain culture while interacting with the villagers. Enjoy fantastic views of Annapurna Himal. Overnight in Ghandruk.

DAY 3:

Trek Ghandruk to Chhomrong (2170m/7119ft) expand
Walking Distance: 5 - 6 hours

Walk past terraced fields, and follow a winding route down to Kimrong Khola, occasionally passing through cascading waterfalls. From time to time stop for awhile to take in the views. Cross a bridge and thereafter take a steep ascent via a stone staircase to Chhomrong, another Gurung village. As soon as you reach the village head towards a teahouse and rest your aching muscles. From Chhomrong, the snowy walls of Annapurna South and Machhapucchre (Fishtail Peak) seem very close. Take pictures and simply let the majestic beauty of the mountains work its magic on you. Overnight in Chhomrong.

DAY 4:

Trek Chhomrong to Bamboo (2310m/7579ft) expand
Walking Distance: 5 - 6 hours

Today’s trek involves more steep descents and ascents on stone staircases. Walk down a flight of steps to Chhomrong Khola and cross the metal suspension bridge. An uphill hike through a wooded trail filled with oak, bamboo and rhododendron trees brings you to Khuldighar. From here take an easy descent down to Bamboo, your stop for the night.

Trek Deurali to Annapurna Base Camp (4,130m/13,550ft) via Machhapuchhre Base Camp (3700m/12139ft) expand

Leave Deurali behind and make a quick descent down to a glacial river. In order to reach ABC you need to first cross Machhapuchhre Base Camp. Enter the Machhapuchhre Base Camp through a narrow valley flanked by steep mountainsides. The walk through the ‘natural gateway’ to Annapurna Sanctuary (abode of the gods according to local folklore) is an unforgettable experience; one that you will remember long after your trek is over. As you get higher the tree line disappears and the vegetation gets sparser. From Machhapuchhre Base Camp enjoy glorious views of Machhapuchhre (Fishtail peak), Annapurna III, Gangapurna and Hiunchuli. Though the area is known as Machhapuchhre Base Camp, climbing on the peak is strictly forbidden. The mountain is a guardian deity of the locals. Ascend higher till you reach Annapurna Base Camp. The base camp lies in a valley surrounded by glaciers and the grand peaks of the Annapurna Massif. The awe inspiring sight will be enough to melt away all your aches and pains!

DAY 7:

Trek Annapurna Base Camp (4,130m/13,550ft) to Bamboo (2310m/7579ft) expand

First thing you do is get up early to catch the sun rising over the snowy peaks. Secondly head down to the Annapurna Sanctuary to witness this phenomenal sight. Watch the spectacular display of light and colour, as the first rays of the sun touch the frozen peaks making them seem like a ring of melted gold. Capture this moment in your mind and your camera to be treasured forever. Explore the glacial bowl and stand beneath the icy circle formed by the peaks of Annapurna Himal, including Annapurna South, Tharpu Chuli, Machhapuchhre, Annapurna III & IV and Annapurna I, the tenth highest peak in the world.

DAY 8:

Trek Bamboo to Jhinu Danda (1760m/5774 ft) expand

After checking into the teahouse, immediately walk down to the riverside and relax your tired muscles with a dip in the naturally heated pool. Later head to a teahouse and celebrate the completion of your trek with the crew and team members. Overnight in Jhinu Danda.

This was our first trek in Nepal and we were so lucky to have found Tussi at the Oasis hotel. He helped us book flights and arrange a guide. He sat with us for a while and went through the options for the treks and after getting to know us a bit better he was able to match us up with a guide that was perfect. My girlfriend and I were matched up with Dpack - our guide which we became friends with on the trek, he was knowledgeable about the area and took really good care of us. After the trek, we actually met up with Dpack (our guide) in Kathmandu for lunch and he showed us around the local spots in the city. I can't recommend Third Rock enough and cannot wait to go back to Nepal.

I came to nepal with my friends with hope of standing next to the great Annapurna ranges. Third Rock Adventures made our dream come true. They took care of everything,from an excellent english speaking guide, porters, accomodation and food, everything was taken care of. Their responsible attitude and unmatched service has really touched us to the core. We felt blessed to be among such beautiful mountains and we felt even more blessed to have Third Rock Adventures guide us all the way to the top. I highly recommend Third Rock Adventures to everyone who want to trek in Nepal.

A friend of mine had done the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. After going through his Instagram pictures and videos of his trek, I was hooked. I knew I had to do this trek and visit this wonderful place. My friend had trekked with Third Rock Adventures and he recommended this company. According to him they were highly professional and employed some really good guides. He was not wrong. I booked my ABC trek with the company and I had no complaints. My guide Shiva, was jolly and quite knowledgeable about the local area and culture, while Ram (the porter) was humble, patient and ever smiling. The villages and terraced fields along the trail were beautiful. The joy and relief that I felt on reaching ABC cannot be put into words. The experience was simply incredible. Thank you Third Rock Adventures for this amazing journey! If I take another adventure in Nepal in the near future, it will definitely be with you guys!

Recommended by friend.

The whole trip was memorable.
Come to Nepal and head to the mountains!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Each day you can expect 5 to 7 hours of walking, covering around 10 to 14 km. However when you reach 3500m, you will be walking around 5 to 7 hours but the distance covered will be less as you will be walking slowly at higher altitudes. We want you to know that all our itineraries are flexible and can be altered by weather, geographical and physical condition of the individual participants

Teahouse trekking is one of the most popular ways of trekking in Nepal. Teahouse trekking has almost replaced old style camping treks in Nepal along the popular trekking routes of Annapurna and Everest regions. Teahouse Trek involves resting or stopping at teahouses or lodges scattered along the trail for the night. The teahouses are locally owned and they provide accommodation and food. While the standard of teahouses varies, most of these establishments usually offer very basic services - small rooms (usually on a twin sharing basis with comfortable beds), shared washroom, a heated communal dining area and a menu with a range of dishes. Some may offer wi-fi and hot shower. As these teahouses are located in remote locations, one should not expect the service of a city hotel while staying in one

Mountain weather is very difficult to predict. During winter (November to February) it will be a bit colder than the other months but the days during winter can be beautiful and warm if the sun is out. Spring (March to May) and Autumn (late September to early November) are the best time to trek in the Annapurna region. During the rainy season (June to early September) there is usually torrential rain in the mountain regions and trekking is not advisable. But in hindsight, no one can predict the weather conditions in the mountains. One can only expect the unexpected in the mountains


QUESTION AND ANSWER

Am interested in the Annapurna Base Camp 11 day trek for autumn 2020. When will you make the dates available? Also, what airline do you use for the flight Katmandu to Pokhara to Katmandu?

 Our fixed departures for 2020 will be on up our website shortly. If you want to book a private trek, you can book anytime you like. But if you want to join a group you will have to wait until we work out the dates for 2020.  We usually book our flights with Yeti Airlines or Buddha Air. But it depends on availability. Sometimes during peak season it gets difficult to get a ticket. In such cases we buy tickets from any airline that has available seats. 

Is the Annapurana region safe for women?
The Annapurna Base camp trek is one of the most popular and developed trails in the Himalayas. Thousands of trekkers come from all over the world to get to the base camp of one of the highest mountains in the world. There are plenty of tea houses on the trail and the Nepalese people are one of the friendliest people in the world. You are probably safer in the Himalayas than in the cities of Nepal.
What kind of weather can we expect while trekking? How cold does it get?
Mountain weather is very difficult to predict. During winter (November to February) it will be a bit colder than the other months but the days during winter can be beautiful and warm if the sun is out.
