Annapurna Base Camp Trek- Trip Overview

The most hiked Annapurna Base Camp trek is on the diverse topography of Western Nepal. As a trekker, you'll get a close view of mountains, ethnic Gurung cultures, viewpoints, and more. Due to these nature's wonders, more than 25 thousand travellers hike to Annapurna Base Camp every year. 

So, what makes Annapurna Base Camp travellers favourite? 

Here are our well-researched and expertly presented topics covering your questions regarding the ABC trek. 

Ideal location for mountains sightseeing

Annapurna Sanctuary is heaven in the Himalayas. The thirst for Mountain sightseeing vanishes right after leaving Pokhara for the Annapurna Base Camp trek

Name a few mountains from Nepal, and I'm confident that one or two in the list will be from here. Thus, it's known to the world that Annapurna Sanctuary is an ideal location for viewing the towering mountains of Western Nepal. 

The distinctive shaped Machhapuchhre and towering Annapurna range accompany you throughout the route to the Annapurna Base Camp trek. On top, the hilltop viewpoint at Ghandruk and Poonhill is ideal for viewing Machhapuchhre and Annapurna in the morning and evening. The glittering rays of sun paint the Annapurna Range and landscape golden. 

Spellbinding view!

First, the two 8,000 metres mountains, Annapurna I at 8,091 metres and the notorious Dhaulagiri I at 8,167 metres, are the best-viewed mountains from ABC. Further, Hiunchuli, Machhapuchhre, Gangapurna, Annapurna II and III, Khangsar, Nilgiri at 7,061 metres greet us with their unmatched elegance at the ABC.

Imagine being in the proximity of this majestic landscape, sleeping on the lap of the Himalayas, and having the best moment in life. 

It is the offering of Annapurna Base Camp Trek for you. Embrace it with your heart. 

Hiking on the serene landscape of Annapurna Base Camp Trek Route

Annapurna Sanctuary trek takes you through the diverse landscape and vegetation. The lush oak, vivid rhododendron forest, and spiny alpine vegetation are the best of the Annapurna Base Camp trek. 

The ABC trek route around Ghandruk and Chhomrong is affluent in rhododendron forest. Also, you'll find many bamboos and fern forests near Chhomrong serene. The landscape above Sinuwa comprises lush Oak forest.

The rushing streams Modi Khola enchants as we begin hiking from Sinuwa through a dense oak forest. 

At Deurali, around 2,600 metres, the lush vegetation depletes, and the tall grass appears to be the dominant vegetation. Over 3,000 metres, you'll only witness the bushes and spiny grass attached to boulders and the rocky terrains. 

Not only the mountains, but Annapurna Sanctuary is also home to countless flora and fauna. Over the 7,629 sq km area in the sanctuary, more than 1,226 plants are flowering. It's also home to 102 exotic mammals and nearly 500 species of birds, amphibians, and reptiles. On rare occasions, you'll encounter some exotic animals. 

Thus, Annapurna Sanctuary remains a trekkers' favourite due to such diversity throughout the Annapurna trek route. 

Unspoiled Ethnic Culture 

You may have seen photographs of trekkers wearing Gurung attires in Ghandruk. The majestic mountains in the backdrop, vivid attires in front, the big smile on the face, the beauty of the Annapurna trek. Heaven of culturally affluent Western Nepal.

Gurung is a prominent tribe in the Annapurna region that practices Buddhism and celebrates Hindu and Buddhist festivals. These festivals fall at the end of Spring and during Autumn. Thus, a cultural trek to the Annapurna region, especially Ghandruk, will be best.

The locals run tea houses en route to the Annapurna Base Camp trek. Most of these people are locals, and some are migrants to establish tea houses during the peak trekking season. You'll meet porters, guides, and fellow trekkers at tea houses. Thus, interaction with these people also gives you the touch of their ethnic lifestyle.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek Altitude Profile

Additional Information


In Pokhara and Kathmandu, we'll provide your four-star hotel for accommodation. 

Annapurna Base Camp is solely a tea house-based trek. Tea houses, some trekkers prefer calling them lodges, are run by locals. 

Annapurna Sanctuary is a prominent trekkers hub in Western Nepal. Thus, the accommodation service you'll get will be decent. 

You'll get hot showers and wifi with some extra charge. Also, at lower altitude places like Ghandruk, you'll get attached toilets with comfortable beds. At places like Jhinu Danda, Ghorepani, and Chhomorong, you may have to accommodate a twin sharing basis, but you'll get a decent sleep. You can also carry pillow cases and sleeping bags for your sound overnight. 

World Expedition Nepal ensures that you'll get the best accommodation service available. 

Trekking to Annapurna Base Camp is tiring. Thus, to maintain energy levels, you need nutritious meals throughout the trek. And you'll get them too. 

For the 10 days Annapurna Base Camp trek, we'll offer ten breakfasts, nine-day meals, and nine dinners. All the servings will be hygienic, nutritious, and mouth savoury. 

The menu item has many meal options but constricts as we hike to Annapurna Base Camp. Thus, you may not get plenty of options to choose from for meals. 

For breakfast, you'll get porridge, toast, butter, Tibetan Bread, Chapati, Fruits, Hot drinks, etc. 

For lunch and dinner, you'll mostly get Nepali Dal Bhat, Soups, Spaghetti, Pasta, Dumplings, Pizza, Apple pie, etc. 

We recommend you not to eat meat items throughout the trek. The imported meat may get contaminated, and you may get sick. Also, try avoiding cheese, dairy, and alcoholic drinks if possible. 


The Autumn months, September, October, and November, are the best time in the year for the Annapurna base camp trek. The weather becomes stable during these months. Also, post-monsoon time in Autumn makes the day hike unobstructed. You can hike all day long without sweating much in a mild temperature. 

Likewise, Spring is also the best season for this trek. The fresh wintry snow makes the mountains alluring in March, April, and May. Also, Spring is the time for rhododendrons to blossom, and nature turns fresh and new. The diverse vegetation of the Annapurna Base Camp trek route makes the trekking serene. 

Thus, these two seasons in a year are considered best for the Annapurna base camp trek.

World Expedition Nepal has fixed departures for Annapurna Base Camp Trek for Autumn 2022 and Spring 2023.

Since I’m not a professional trekker and trekking is not my cup of tea but exploring the mountains has always been my biggest dream. Everest Base camp Helicopter Tour made one of my biggest dreams come true and I’m very thankful to Sujan. It was the most adventurous tour of my life and I’m in love with the mountains. The scenic flight to Lukla was also an exciting part of the journey. All the services of the company were great and I’m very satisfied with my tour.

Having just returned from my third trip to Nepal, I can highly recommend world expedition Nepal as a trek operator. I used their services for the third time, and will definitely be back for more next year. Sujan  who run the company really care and look after their customers, from the moment you land in Nepal and until the departure. There are two key factors for a successful trip which they have nailed down – they use top notch guides and they are personally available at any times of... See more the day to assist with. They are highly professional, really care about the customer needs, but also are just the nicest and easiest people to deal with. Many things in Nepal can be difficult, like getting local flights or especially last minute changes to local flights during the high season, but they make everything easy. And last but not least, their services are really fairly priced. Needless to say, when I’m back in Nepal next year for my next adventure, it will be undoubtedly with World expedition Nepal!
