Annapurna Base Camp Trek is a unique trek in the foothills of the Annapurna Region that offers you an experience of the high Himalayas. On this trek, you will enjoy gentle walking into the heart of the mountains, with some ascents and descending hills. But on the other hand, it offers breathtaking views of Annapurna I, Annapurna South, Hiuchuli, Mt. Fishtail and many other surrounding snow-capped peaks.

The Annapurna Base camp is a vast natural amphitheatre surrounded by the high peaks of Annapurna I, Gangapurna, Glacier Dome, Fang and Machhapuchhare. The trek route will take you through a landscape of bamboo and rhododendron forests, mountain villages, terraced hillsides and river valleys to the open country above the tree line.

What to Expect

On the Annapurna Base camp trek, you will experience the thrill of trekking in the high Himalayas and seeing some fascinating glimpses of the rich Nepalese culture in the villages en route. Arriving at Pokhara airport, you will be picked up by your guide, who will drive you up to the village of Nayapul, where the trail begins.

The first part of the trek takes you along the banks of the Modi Khola to the village of Birethanti, then along Bhurungdi Khola and up the valley to your first stopping point at Tikhedhunga. After a welcome night’s rest in the guest house, the trail continues its gradual ascent, with overnight stays at Ghorepani, Tadapani, Chhomorung, Dovan and Deurali.

One of the trip’s high points is the excursion to Poon Hill on day four. You will enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri—rising majestically through the clouds or tinged with gold in the early morning sun.

  • Experience 14 days Annapurna Base camp Trek with gorgeous mountain views with our experienced guide.
  • Enjoy the mesmerizing view of the sunrise, and Annapurna Himalaya ranges from Poon Hill (3210 meters above sea level).
  • Explore the Annapurna Base camp; truly a hidden treasure.

  • Typical Gurung village at Landruk and Chhomorung.

Dear Tilak!

Thank you so much for organizing the most wonderful trek in the world!

We had the best time, thanks to our thoughtful, kind, professional and funny guide, Narayan, and our porter, Kapil, who was just as funny, lively, professional and a joy to be around. Those two made our trek an experience we’ll never forget. Thanks to them, we can (in the words of Michal Jackson) say, “A.B.C, it’s easy as 1 2 3”. Namely, we climbed all the stairs from Birethanti to Annapurna Base Camp. On the way, we saw the most breathtaking sunrises and magnificent mountains we’ve ever seen.

One might believe that at least once during a one-and-a-half-week-long trek, you’ll get a bit sick of walking, tired of your company, longing for a bit of privacy – but we never did! The reason? We were having too much fun dancing, singing, playing cards, talking and taking in the stunning view of the Himalayas.

Also, I (Sigrun) would like to offer a special thank you to Narayan for organizing the best birthday party ever! How many people can say they celebrated their 23rd birthday in a lodge, dancing disco with a random mix of strangers, after eating a specially made chicken curry and getting a cake with 23 candles? It was the best and showed what an incredible caring guide we had!

I guess our praises could go on forever. But, as my boss told me the other day, “you’re glowing when you’re talking about Nepal”. No wonder, since I’m absolutely in love with the country. I hope we can do another trek with our fabulous duo, Narayan and Kapil, someday. But, for now, we’ll live on the memories of the greatest trek of our lives. And thanks to Nepal Hiking for arranging it, and special thanks to Narayan and Kapil for making it more than we could have!

Best regards,

24 May 2016

Namaste Tilak,

Hope all is well in Nepal, and your business is going o.k. We have been on a trek to ABC (Annapurna Base Camp) with Ram and Babu from Sep. 29 to Oct. 11, 2003. Unfortunately, since we returned to KTM very late on the day before we flew back to Germany, there was no chance to visit you in your office in Kathmandu. However, we just wanted to give brief feedback regarding our trek.

First of all, Ram and Babu have been fantastic and took great care of us. We had a wonderful time trekking with both of them. Everything went smoothly and without any problems. Instead of starting the trek in Phedi, Ram suggested starting in Naya Pul. We discussed that with him, and he convinced us the way up from Naya Pul would be a little bit easier and not as steep. Since he knows the area so well, we certainly trusted his judgment, which was a very good decision.

The climb up to Hille on the first day was rather easy and a good start to loosen up our legs after sitting in planes and buses for many hours during the last few days. We then hiked on to Ghorepani, where we encountered the Maoists. Ram handled the situation well, and we had no problems with them. On the third day, we trekked to Tadapani, and on the fourth day, we made it to Chhomorung.

Baerbel and I believe this was a better way up because it gave us extra nights at a rather high altitude to get used to the altitude and prepare for the further hike up to ABC. We would support recommending this way to other clients of your agency, particularly because we went back over Phedi and then realized how steep the trail is. However, we do not think it is a good thing to do on the first day of the trek.

Ram and Babu never rushed things, and we had a very relaxing time. We took enough rest during the day and never felt too exhausted at the end of the day. Ram organized everything from food to drinks, and we did not have to do anything but enjoy the trek. His English is very good, and he explained and pointed out many interesting things about Nepali people and the country. He seemed very knowledgeable and never lost his patience despite all our questions. Babu also speaks reasonable English, and both tried to teach us some Nepali. I am afraid we failed miserably trying to pronounce the words correctly. It always made us all laugh a lot, though.

We have been truly lucky to have Ram as our guide, and also Babu added a lot to this great experience. We already have and will continue recommending your agency to all our friends. Most of them are hiking a lot, and maybe they will also plan a trip to Nepal soon. In that case, your agency will be their first point of contact since you seem to have very friendly and reliable people like Ram and Babu working for you.

Please also give our best wishes and regards to both of them if you speak to them again. We believe they are currently trekking in the Everest region.

All the best to you, and good luck with your future. We hope to see you again in Nepal someday.

Take care,

15 November 2003
