How to get from Pokhara to Annapurna?

The best way to get to the Annapurna region is to fly into Kathmandu and then take a short, scenic flight or drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara (approx 200km). From Pokhara, it's a 3-4 day trek to attempt Annapurna base camp. Most of the time, it's best to start early in the morning and hike for 5-6 hours each day. Keep in mind that if you're not used to high altitudes, it will be difficult at first. However, as you acclimatize, the altitude sickness should go away. If you are concerned with Annapurna base camp elevation sickness or are just feeling a little more tired than usual, there are many ways to help yourself.

Some options include:

  1. Staying hydrated
  2. Eating often and light fresh food
  3. Taking Vitamin supplements (it boosts red blood cells)
  4. Drinking ginger tea (ginger has natural anti-nausea properties)
  5. Spending less time outside during daylight hours (sunlight can worsen conditions)
  6. Wearing sunscreen on exposed skin and packing
  7. light bag, rain protection, toilet paper, a fleece jacket, water bottles, liner socks, pair of pants, hiking boots, and a basic first aid kit so you can regulate your temperature by adding or removing clothing based on how cold or hot it is outside.

Nepal Annapurna Base Camp Trek (Pic: Annapurna 1 Photo) 

Annapurna Base Camp TrekAnnapurna Base Camp Trekking is one of the best treks in Nepal. The trail takes you through some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, including forests, rivers, and mountains. The trek can be done in as little as seven days, but we recommend taking at least 13 days to enjoy the experience.

Here are some tips to help you make the most of your great time on the Nepal Annapurna Base Camp Trek:

  • Try to arrive early enough for acclimatization. If possible, it is a good idea to spend a night or two in Kathmandu before heading out on the trek so that your body has a chance to adjust to the altitude.
  • If you're too late for this step, take it easy and drink lots of water throughout the day.
  • Avoid alcohol because it dehydrates you further!
  • Allow yourself plenty of time for rest stops and breaks- this will give your body more opportunities to adjust to high altitudes by giving it more recovery time between stretches of activity.
  • In addition, make sure you eat regularly throughout the day, especially carbohydrates such as pasta or potatoes that give you energy up to Himalayan standards.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek Cost

The Cost of the Annapurna Base Camp Trek will vary depending on the length of the trek, the time of year, and the company (trekking agency) you book with. Generally speaking, it is more expensive to trek during the high season (March-May and September-November) and prices will be lower during the shoulder seasons (December-February and June-August). It is also important to factor in the cost of your flights to and from Nepal, Accommodation, food, guide, and porter, as well as any gear you may need to rent or purchase. With all of this considered, you can expect to spend anywhere from $700-$900 on your Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

Best time for Annapurna Base Camp Trek

September through November and March through April are the best times for the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. The weather is stable and clear sky during these months, making for ideal trekking conditions. Plus, you'll see the stunning Nepal countryside in all its autumnal or springtime glory. If you're looking for more serenity and fewer crowds, go during the off-season (November through December). You might have to bring a heavier jacket, but it's worth it when you've got quiet on your side. Most people do the Annapurna Base Camp Trek in either late fall or early spring.

Different routes of ABC Trek Package

The most common route for the 13 Days ABC trek is via Nayapul, which is the starting point for most trekkers. However, there are a few other options for those looking for a different experience. The Poon Hill route is a good option for those who want easier treks, as it takes you past one of the best sunrise views from Ghorepani Poon Hill. For those looking for a longer Annapurna base camp trek distance, the Annapurna Circuit Trek is a great option, as it goes all the way around Annapurna and gives you some of the best views of any of the routes. No matter which route chooses, you're sure to have an amazing time on your ABC treks!

Why we believe everyone must trek in Annapurna: A note from the Northern Trekking Team

The Annapurna Base Camp Trekking is one of the most popular treks in Nepal. It is a great trek for beginners and experienced trekkers alike. The scenery is breathtaking, and the people you meet along the way are incredibly friendly. We believe that everyone should experience the abc base camp trek at least once in their lifetime.

Here are a few reasons why:

  1. The scenery is incredible. You'll be surrounded by mountains the entire time, and you'll even get to see the world's 10th-highest mountain, Mount Annapurna.
  2. The people you meet will be some of the friendliest you've ever met. Everyone is out there to have a good time, and they're all eager to help each other out. They often share stories about their lives, which we find very fascinating.
  3. In addition, everyone is so welcoming and accepting of us. They don't care what our culture or race is; we're just another person coming through on the trail with them.
  4. The day hikes are challenging enough to make it feel like an accomplishment but not too difficult to discourage anyone from going on this trekking trip.

FAQs

You'll need to be up-to-date on your routine vaccinations, including measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine, varicella (chickenpox) vaccine, polio vaccine, and your yearly flu shot. You may also need additional vaccines depending on your age, health condition, and travel plans. For example, you might need the hepatitis A or B vaccine if you're planning to trek in Nepal.

You can expect a wide range of weather conditions when trekking to Annapurna Base Camp. The temperature will vary depending on the time of year, but will generally be cool to cold. Expect some rain or snow, especially at higher elevations. Be sure to pack appropriate clothing and gear to stay warm and dry.

When trekking at high altitudes, it is important to take safety measures to prevent altitude sickness. Some safety measures include: 
-Drinking plenty of fluids and staying hydrated 
-Eating light meals that are rich in carbs and proteins but low in fat 
-Avoiding alcohol consumption 
-Staying warm by wearing layers of clothing that you can peel off or put on as the temperature changes 
-Getting up slowly from a sitting or lying position to allow your body time to adjust to the change in elevation 
-Take breaks during hikes and not overexert yourself (Annapurna offers a lot of amazing places to stop) 
-Spending some time each day acclimatizing to higher elevations before going higher (for example, spend one night at lower elevations before going higher) 
-Pacing yourself on climbs (it's better to go slower than have to turn back due to altitude sickness)

The simple answer is yes, you can trek in Nepal without a guide. However, we recommend hiring a guide for several reasons. First, a guide can help you navigate the often confusing and unmarked trails. Second, a guide can provide invaluable local knowledge, including information about the best places to eat and sleep, as well as safety concerns. Third, having a guide frees you up to simply enjoy the experience without having to worry about the logistics. And finally, while many reputable agencies offer guided treks throughout Nepal, these require an additional fee. 

Assuming you're doing the trek in Nepal's spring or autumn, you'll want to pack layers since the temperature can vary widely throughout the day. A down jacket is a must, as is a waterproof shell. Hiking boots are a given, but make sure they're broken in before you go since you'll be doing a lot of walking. Also pack plenty of socks, as well as comfortable clothes for around camp. As for other gear, bring a headlamp, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a first-aid kit. A good camera with extra batteries is also essential.

No, it is not possible to see snow leopards on the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. Snow leopards are very rare and shy animals that live in high altitudes, typically above 3,000 meters. They are mostly active at night, which makes them even more difficult to spot. If you want to see a tiger instead of a snow leopard on your trek, you're better off going on a safari in Nepal's Chitwan National Park.

You should bring enough money to cover all of your expenses for the duration of the trek, including food, lodging, and any souvenirs or supplies you may want to purchase. Additionally, it is always a good idea to have some extra cash on hand in case of an emergency. You can expect to spend anywhere from $45-$50 per day, depending on your trekking route and style.

Most people choose to stay in guesthouses along the way, as it is more comfortable than camping and doesn't require any extra gear. That said, there are a few places where camping is the only option. The good news is that the campsites are usually located near water sources and have toilets.
What is the food like? (five sentences): The food on the trek is surprisingly good! There are a variety of local dishes to choose from, as well as western favorites like pasta and pizza. It's all freshly prepared at each meal, so you won't get bored with the same dish every day.

If you're looking to get some experience in the mountains before attempting the Annapurna Base Camp Trek, there are a few other great options in the Pokhara area. The Poon Hill Trek is a great option for those who want to get a taste of trekking in Nepal without having to commit to a longer trek. For those who are looking for something a bit more challenging, the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is a great option.

Annapurna Base Camp is located at an altitude of 4,130 meters (13,550 feet) above sea level.

Travel Insurance

For everyone who will plan to Trek in Nepal, it is highly recommended that you get travel insurance that covers added expenses that might result due to various health issues, injuries, or accidents (together with the ambulance, helicopter rescue, and other treatment costs). Your insurance policy should cover the entire activities that you are planning to accomplish throughout your stay in Nepal.

In addition to this, the policy should also cover death, misplaced luggage, theft and liability, cancellations, medical treatment (counting hospital charges, cost of the medicine, and doctor’s fees) as well as repatriation costs. Also, this trekking trail in Nepal takes you 4,000 m above the altitude, therefore, you also need to ensure that your insurance policy covers treks that go over 4,000 m. 

We suggested that you buy your insurance policy from your home country before joining us, as it is difficult buying a local travel insurance policy for foreigners in Nepal.

While you’re in Kathmandu, your accommodation is at a standard hotel (Arrival time and departure time). Your accommodation is at the best local Lodge and Guest Houses where available.

Generally, chosen menu items are Nepalese meals (Dal Bhat), Tibetan fried bread, various types of soups, Momo’s (steamed dumplings), boiled and fried potatoes, kinds of pasta, and even pizza.

I did ABC trekking with them and it was so memorable, even if it's heavy snow they can make it to bring me there till the ABC. They provide the duffel bag, trekking stick, jacket, and polo shirt for free. Really appreciate! Hope can make it again with another trek with them one day.

Amazing Trip

We did our Annapurna Basecamp Trek with Mingmar and it was one of the best trekking experiences I've ever had. Guide, porter, and service from Northern Trekking Team are simply worth the money. Looking forward to doing another trekking with this company in the future

Amazing Trekking Company

I have hiked with Mingmar 4 times now (Annapurna, Everest, Lantang, and Manaslu) over 5 years and each trip gets better. Nepal itself is amazing, but having a good guide can help make the experience even more magical. Mingmar and his team know the best tea houses to stay at, all the mountains and wildlife, and make sure you have a safe, fun, and memorable journey all while at a competitive price compared to other companies! I could not more strongly recommend Northern Trekking Team for your trip to Nepa

Awesome People and Trek

I would give more than 5 stars if there is an option. Mingmar and his team(Subhash and Porters) were amazing. Annapurna base camp is really a moderate trek however continuous rain made is very difficult for us. Mingmar kept us pushing till we completed our trek. They are always smiling and very helping. We were 6 school friends and had Really amazing time on this trekking.

Amazing Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) trek

Thank you very much to Mingmar and his team for this memorable trek to ABC. first three day for difficult for us since it was raining heavily but Mingmar motivated us constantly and his team make sure that we would complete the ABC trek safely with good memories. Eventually his team became like family members to us. If any one looking for trek in Nepal , I highly recommend this team.
