Annapurna Base Camp Trek also known as Annapurna Sanctuary trek is one of the most visited trekking trails in Nepal. Annapurna Base Camp Trekking takes you to the base camp of Annapurna I (8,091m), the world’s tenth highest mountain. The scenic and challenging part of this trek attracts many hikers from different parts of the world.

While trekking, you will enjoy the glimpse of Himalayan mountains like Mt. Annapurna I (8,091m.), Mt.Annapurna II (7,939m.), Mt. Annapurna III (7,555m.), Mt. Annapurna IV (7,525m.), Mt. Machhapuchre (6,993m.) Mt. Hiuchuli (6,441m.), Mt. Lamjung (6,986m.). The base camp is incredibly spectacular, set amidst the Himalayan peaks. Your trekking journey to Annapurna Base Camp begins in Pokhara but there are 2 main trekking routes that you can plan and follow up to the base camp. Exciting Himalaya has outlined the itinerary via Ghorepani Poon Hill trekking route that meets at Chomrong and takes you to Annapurna Base Camp. Many trekkers prefer this circuit route – Nayapul-Ghorepani- Chomrong Annapurna Base Camp and ends in Nayapul.


The itinerary that we have presented here takes 13days, starting from Kathmandu to Pokhara and drive from Pokhara to Kathmandu). From Pokhara, we head to Nayapul by a means of local transport, then hike north up to Ghorepani and the popular viewpoint at Poon hill. Then from Ghorepani, you turn eastward and walk gently to Chomrong. From Chomrong you will head to the north entering the Modi Kola Valley which takes you to the Base Camp. This route is indeed very rewarding in itself.

Easy trek

This trek can easily be done by a family with children as well. On ABC trek you will be absolutely immersed in greenery. Rich vegetation will surround you throughout the trek. Flora and fauna will change repeatedly, but the lushness will remain pretty consistent. You will walk through forests of rhododendron before entering into the fields of towering bamboo and then again you will find yourself deep within dense rain forest creeping with moss and lichen. Because of the lower altitude, greenness will be accompanied with you almost all the way up to the base camp. The final day’s push is mostly above the tree line, but even here, you will still be walking through emerald alpine fields. Pre-monsoon time between March and May and post-monsoon from September to November is the ideal time for trekking.

  1. 안나푸르나 관련해서 알아보던 여행사
    Sapa Kim8th July, 2019

    안나푸르나 관련해서 알아보던 여행사 중 우연히 제가 머문 호스텔에서 운영하는 여행사가 있다는 것을 알게 되었고 안나푸르나 관련 루트, 장비 그리고 날씨 등 여러가지 질문에 정말 친절하고 자세하게 설명해주시더라고요. 특히 사장님이랑 몇 명 직원분이 한국말을 할줄 아셔서 한국사람한테 더욱 도움이 될겁니다. 사장님이 4년 정도 한국에서 사셨다고 하시더라고요. 답변해주실 때 딱 베테랑이라는 느낌을 받았습니다 사무실 벽에도 자격증 같은게 많이 걸려있더라고요. 투어 가격도 다른 여행사 보다 훨씬 합리적이고 잘 짜여져 있었습니다. 여행사에서 운영하는 호스텔(Hostel himalaya)도 있어서 여기서 머물면서 여러정보 얻는것도 나쁘지 않을거 같습니다. 호스텔도 엄청 저렴합니다. 여러가지로 감사했습니다!!
  2. Annapurna Base Camp Adventure Trip
    Pham Phu14th May, 2019

    I spent 9 days in Nepal including 5 days trek in Pokhara! It was quite short because I wanted to do many things!! I got acute mountain sickness when I arrived at ABC! Thank Raj, my guide, I could get over! Even I could not eat anything and got vomit, he calmed down my nerves! He always asked me whether I can stand it! He gave me the medicine and said that he would have brought me to the lower base if the tablet did not work! Lucky me, I could trek myself without helicopter rescue finally! We had a beer together and fun time for the way back at lower base! It is an unforgettable trip! In Pokhara, I joined bungee jumping and zip flyer! I highly recommend the zip flyer because you will be the top of Pokhara where is one of the best places to see ABC and the zip lining is long and cross over the river! It's so fantastic! Once again, I sincerely thank Raj-my guide and Ray- My porter! Both of you made our trip extremely wonderful! Hope to see you soon!!
