Annapurna Base Camp Trek lies in Annapurna Sanctuary located in the northern part of the Gandaki Province. The second-largest city in Nepal, Pokhara, is the starting and ending point of the accessible trek to Annapurna Base Camp. Pokhara is also the finest spot to unwind after the strenuous journey to the base camp. The hiking path gives us the opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking mountain vistas along the way as well as the locals of many ethnic groups with their distinctive Nepalese customs, culture, and village communities.
From the top of Poon Hill, you can see the Kaligandaki Gorge, Mt. Dhaulagiri, the Annapurna Range, and Mt. Machhapuchhre (Fishtail Mountain) in the north, and the Butterfly Peaks in the far west. The trek route travels by breathtaking and serene scenery, lovely Gurung and Magar settlements, and thick rhododendron, bamboo, and alpine forests. For those who long to discover new places, people, and lives, finding themselves at the foot of the massive Annapurna I (8091m, or roughly 5.03 km) with a 360-degree mountain view, would be an unforgettable lifetime experience.
The Annapurna base camp trek is well known as a haven for those who love the outdoors because it provides breathtaking views of several Himalayan peaks, including Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167 m), Mt. Annapurna I (8091 m), Mt. Manaslu (8163 m), Mt. Annapurna II (7937 m), Mt. Annapurna III (7555 m), Mt. Annapurna IV (7134m). As you make your way to base camp, you'll pass through some of the most breathtaking mountain landscapes, beautiful Gurung communities with their slate-roofed homes, and fantastic rhododendron woods.
The Ghorepani Poon Hill (3210m), one of the best locations for a panoramic view of the Annapurna trip and Annapurna sanctuary, will also be an opportunity for you to visit. The most well-known trip in Nepal, the Annapurna Base Camp Trek, passes through some of the most breathtaking scenery on earth. You will be traveling through the Kaligandaki Valley, the deepest gorge in the world, through rhododendron woods over the slopes of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges.
We can alter the days of the trekkers' Annapurna base camp trek based on their preferences and areas of interest. Ghorepani Poonhill Trek or the Rapid ABC Trek - 12 days would be acceptable alternatives for your holiday if you have a short amount of time.
Our hike to Annapurna Base Camp's highest point is 4110 meters.
Welcome from Mountain Guide Trek staff upon your arrival in Nepal. After check-in, if time allows, you will visit the MGT office to meet your trekking leader as well as other participants for the final preparation of the trip. (Overnight at deluxe hotel on BB basis)
Start your journey at 7:00 a.m. We will organize a seat for you in a tourist bus so you can take in the landscape as you drive along the Trisuli River, where you will see numerous people rafting down the river. We travel 200 kilometers in about 6 or 7 hours to get to Pokhara (a city of lakes, literally). The city provides us with a breathtaking view of many mountains, including the Annapurna range's Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Machhapuchre, and others. You have a wonderful opportunity to finish up some shopping and go exploring on your own around the neighborhood (walk around a few lakes, go boating, etc.). (BB base, one night in a luxury hotel in Pokhara)
Following breakfast, the Annapurna Base Camp Trek began at Nayapul. It is close to Pokhara, a charming lake city. Our first day of the Annapurna base camp walk is a slightly easier climb through the bank of the Modi Khola River and the picturesque sight of lowland rice fields, and it takes an hour to reach there. (Stay the night at a tea house with full board)
As we set out from Tikhedunga, the majority of the trekkers find the steep stone staircase (which has roughly 3300 steps) to Ulleri to be challenging. We will see magnificent vistas, a rhododendron forest, charming villages, vegetation, fauna, and more during our 5–6 hour trip. (Full-board lodging in a tea house, sis)
It will take 5 to 6 hours to walk from Ghorepani to Tadapani after breakfast. Early morning hikes up to Poon Hill (3210 meters (approximately 1.99 km) / 10531 feet) to observe the panoramic vista with a spectacular Poon hill sunrise. We get a chance to witness the flora and fauna of the Annapurna trip region as we go through dense forest from Poon Hill, a magnificent viewpoint near Magdi, to Tadapani. (At the tea house overnight on full bb)
We descend steeply from Tadapani to a picturesque settlement called Chomrong, which is perched on the flank of the enormous Annapurna massif. Chomrong is a village in the Annapurna region of Nepal and a well-known overnight stopover for those going on the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. Our route from Tadapani to Chomrong follows the Modi Khola's west bank, with steep descents to Chomrong beneath the towering peaks of Annapurna South and Machhapuchhare. (Overnight stay at tea house with full board)
After breakfast, we trek up a trail with stone stairs to the Chhomrong Khola and the forested Himalayan hills. Trekking from Chhomrong to Dovan takes 8.6 kilometers; after crossing the suspension bridge, we ascend to Sinuwa. The most challenging sections of the ABC trip are the steep descent to Chhomrong Khola and the steep rise to upper Sinuwa. (Stay the night at a tea house with full board)
We gradually ascend via the Modi Khola riverside till we reach Machhapcuhre, popularly known as Mt. Fishtail, base camp. Its name, which translates to "fishtail" in Nepali, alludes to the mountain's twin peaks and notch summit. Hinduism reveres Fish Tail Mountain as a holy mountain because Lord Shiva is said to reside there. The only option is to ascend to the summit because climbing is prohibited here. (Stay the night at a tea house with full board basis)
Annapurna Base Camp is progressively becoming obscured by the path. The Annapurna Sanctuary is the name of this location. A massive frozen basin known as the Annapurna Sanctuary is located 40 kilometers (approximately 24.85 miles) north of Pokhara. This oval-shaped upland is surrounded by the Annapurna range of mountains, the majority of which are above 7000 meters high, and is located at an elevation of approximately 4200 meters (around 2.61 miles) (about 4.35 miles). (Overnight stay at the tea house on full B&B)
Early in the morning, get up, and trek to Bamboo after exploring the hidden valley (2340 m). You will be trekking all the way downhill to Bamboo after breakfast. ( Overnight t the tea house on full B&B)
After breakfast, we descend the Chhomrong Khola, cross a bridge, and then ascend more than a thousand stone stairs at the end of Chhomrong Village to return to the same path we had previously taken to reach Sinuwa. After Chhomrong, we take a detour and drive to Jhinu Danda, which boasts what locals refer to as "natural hot springs," instead of continuing on to Ghandruk Village. Our accommodation is 15 minutes' downhill from Jhinu Danda, where we can enjoy a hot spring. ( Overnight stay at a tea house with full board).
At Nayapull, our trek comes to a close today. We were going to travel the Modi Khola's riverbank after breakfast, passing through Kyumi Village and New Bridge. We'll keep on with our last-minute trip through the Syauli bazaar to Birethati before heading to Nayapull for the final 30 minutes. We'll take a short break to have some refreshing beverages before making the drive back to Pokhara. In the hotel, you can relax and unwind. (BB base, overnight stay at a luxury hotel)
Your journey will begin at 7:30 am from Pokhara with a ticket reserved for you in the tourist coach at a riverfront seat. You will arrive in Kathmandu (around Thamel) after 6–7 hours and be transferred to your accommodation. The day is free for you to relax, finish up any last-minute shopping, or see any attractions you might have missed on your first day in Kathmandu. (BB base, overnight stay at a luxury hotel)
There is nothing left to do but exchange emails with the travel agency and organize the images as today is the last day of the Annapurna base camp trip. You are bidding goodbye to the mountains as the vacation to Nepal comes to an end today. You can go shopping or go sightseeing if you have more time. Mountain Guide Treks will send a representative to pick you up at the airport around three hours prior to the flight's planned departure time.

Altitude sickness (also known as acute mountain sickness) is an unfavorable health condition that strikes our body when we are at a high altitude (basically above 2500m). If there are any symptoms seen during the trek, we will have a primary treatment to cure the sickness. First of all, we will walk down to a minimum of 150m from the location where the symptoms are seen, and walk down again if the symptoms are not improved. If the victim is unable to walk down on his/her own, we can hire a horse, or we can request our porter to carry the person. Warm water and ginger juice are also served to cure the sickness. If these treatments are unable to cure the patient, rescue can be done by helicopter
