The beautiful Annapurna Base Camp trek leads to a bowl-like Himalayan sanctuary encircled by white peaks, some higher than 8,000 meters. The trek, in the awe-inspiring Annapurna mountain range, takes you through rhododendron forests, traditional Nepali villages and ever-higher vistas. 

We begin in Nayapul and hike to Ghorepani. The next morning, we wake up early to catch the sunrise at Poon Hill, where we get a stunning, panoramic view of the Himalayas, including the peaks of Dhaulagiri(8,167m), Annapurna I(8,091m), Fishtail(6,993m) and the three-peak Nilgiri range. At Tadapani, the trail splits and we take the base camp route. We continue through beautiful villages, such as Chhomrong, nestled amid the awesome mountain peaks.

The trek reaches Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) base camp and then ultimately Annapurna Base Camp trek. Early the next morning, we catch the sunrise. The sun bathes the top of the snowy peaks with a golden glow, giving you a memory you will never forget. Trekking down, we stop to enjoy the hot springs in Jhinu Danda, trek to Nayapul and drive to Pokhara. The itinerary can be customized to meet your needs and interests.  

This is a teahouse trek, with basic accommodation and hearty meals included.

 How long is Annapurna Base Camp Trek?

Annapurna Base Camp Trek Distance is 120 km in total. We have to work 7-10 km daily on average. The time we spend to pass this distance daily is between 4-6 hours. The trail is ups and downs all the days since we are trekking in the mountain. However, there is not considerable steep hill except Ulleri. Even this walk is pleasant through beautiful settlement and lush rhododendron forest. The leader will make a perfect planning how to pass this distance daily and we do not really feel tired of working with the group. We also have some snacks and tea during we cross 7-10 km distance every day. So, it is going to be memorable and graceful.


How difficult is Annapurna Base Camp Trek? 

Annapurna Base Camp Trek Difficulty is a much-discussed topic before making a trip to Annapurna Base Camp. Relatively, Annapurna Base Camp Trek is not much difficult as other treks in Nepal like Everest Base Camp Trek and Manaslu Trek. However, it depends on your age and experience. The beginners find this trekking absolutely perfect because we do not go higher than 5 thousand meters. But sometimes, even Annapurna Base Camp will be hard to trekkers who have very weak stamina and people of old age. Simply, we have to work 4-7 hours a day on average. In between, we have the chance to have tea, some snacks and lunch too. So, to make a judgement, Annapurna Base Camp Trekking is neither difficult nor easy, somewhere in between,

Annapurna Base Camp Trek Details offered by many trekking companies and we also get it on several online sources. However, all sources may not be reliable. Then, how to judge its reliability? Asking a friend or someone else who has been in the same region. Actually, Annapurna Base Camp Trekking begins from Pokhara, Nayapool and ends at the same place. The root itinerary of Annapurna Trekking is 11 days. And the highest point of this trekking is Annapurna Base Camp which is 41300m high. Ghorepani, Poonhill, Jhino Danda, Machhapuchhre Base Camp and Annapurna Base Camp are popular places in this trek. Annapurna massif and other peaks including Himchuli, Manasalu, Ganesh Himal and other peaks are astonishing. Besides, Annapurna Conservation Area is also a dominant attraction of this Trek.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek Map can be downloaded online and also we can buy it in Kathmandu in many shops. If we are planning to trek to Annapurna Base Camp, Annapurna Base Camp Trek Map will assist us in many ways. On the one hand, this map will help us to plan the itinerary on daily basis. On the other hand, we get information about distance, destinations and boundaries. Similarly, we get plenty of information of flora and faunas and most importantly, mountain peaks.

In package trek, the guide will deal with everything required during the trip. He, she will arrange all required accommodation, food, itinerary, daily work etc. So that, the independent trekkers can enjoy the trip in their own way lessening the burden of work.


Annapurna Base Camp Trek Review can be read or viewed in different sources. Among various sources of reviews, the most reliable sources are Google and Trip Advisor reviews made by the trekkers. Besides, we also can see reviews about Annapurna Base Camp in different websites of trekking companies. The trekkers connected or made their trip through a particular trekking company make the review about the trip on the company website. Indeed, most of the trekkers make their choice of the trips according to the reviews made by the trekkers who have already visited the destinations.


Annapurna Base Camp Trek Solo is possible but in fact not considered to be safe and convenient. Trekking in the mountain in a group is far better than trekking solo. Trekking with porter or guide will be safer and logical in the mountain. If anything happens in the mountain, soon the guide and the porter will get ready to help the tourists. Also, the guide will help you acknowledge the local culture and importantly mountain peaks. In contrast to, the solo trekking will have to confront everything by oneself which is really difficult in the mountain in a strange place.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek Reviews

  • Outstanding Guide for our family’s Annapurna Circuit and Base Camp Trek

    “Outstanding Guide for our family’s Annapurna Circuit and Base Camp Trek”

    December 29, 2017

    A few weeks ago we successfully trekked the Annapurna Circuit and Base Camp. This was my second trek with Hari and the first with my daughters, Megan and Natalie. During our three-week adventure, Hari demonstrated great planning and showed great presence--this is why I will join him again. 

    Hari knew well the sections of the Circuit we needed to travel by jeep or by foot. Hari planned each day with skill so that Megan, who could only be with us for two weeks, reached her desired destination, and Natalie and I completed our trek to Base Camp as planned. Hari’s intelligence, knowledge, and years of trekking experience were so appreciated by our family.

    Throughout our trek, Hari was attentive to our needs, while being outgoing, patient, and personable. He's a man of integrity anyone can trust; and he's an excellent communicator who keeps his promises while being polite, straightforward, and reliable.

    I highly recommend Hari of Nepal Hiking Trek to any prospective trekker. I look forward to my next adventure with Hari, knowing that we will share many warm-hearted laughs along the trail.
