Annapurna Base Camp trek allows you to be surrounded by gigantic mountains like while walking through picturesque villages and luscious forests. Annapurna Base Camp situated in the altitude of 4130m, allows the trekker to view a breathtaking vista of Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna III (7937m), Annapurna IV (7525m), Gangapurna (7455m), and Machhapuchhre (6993m). One of the most popular treks in Nepal, Annapurna Base Camp Trek, allows you to have a peaceful mind away from the hustle of the city life.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek takes you to the base of the giant Annapurna massif from Kathmandu and brings you back to the capital in just 13 days. You can expect modest accommodation and other services throughout the trek as the trail is often crowded with tourists. The trail takes you to picturesque Gurung villages where you can enjoy their warm hospitality as you explore their culture, tradition, dialect, lifestyle, and of course food.

People living in these areas are mostly Buddhists, so you can expect to see lots of small and big monasteries adorned with prayer flags. The trail walks through forests of rhododendron, the national flower of Nepal, which fills the hills in vivid colors during the spring season. At the base camp itself, you will find yourself wrapped in the towering mountains which look surreal from up close. Annapurna Base Camp Trek is a getaway in the lap of nature without having to make strenuous efforts.

We in Amble Himalaya Treks provide you services like no other. The guide for our tour has knowledge of the surrounding and is well experienced. Taking motivating from the reviews of our delighted clients, we offer our services to you. So grab your bag and join us on this majestic journey.

Anyone who is physically sound can join Annapurna Base Camp trek. The trek does not require prior trekking experience. However, we recommend you to do some basic exercises before your Annapurna Circuit trek. If you have any medical condition, you must seek medical advice from your doctor before considering the trek.

Our team representative will be there to greet you outside of Arrival section of Tribhuvan International Airport. He will be displaying Amble Himalaya Treks and the name card with your name on it. After that, you will be transferred to pre-chosen hotel.

Accommodation in Kathmandu depends on your preference and budget. Normally, we offer three-star hotel services in our itinerary, but we can accommodate you according to your choice as you can choose from a budget hotel to luxurious five-star services.

However, you will have to forget the luxuries of the city during the trek as you will be staying in teahouses/lodges with basic facilities. The teahouses/lodges, although small, provide clean sheets and blanket with a cozy mattress. We also offer sleeping bags if required (which needs to be returned after the trip), but it’s always a good idea to carry a personal sleeping bag. We provide you with single and double rooms depending on the availability and prior booking. It is quite difficult to get a single room during the peak season; therefore, we usually offer double rooms in our outline itinerary.


Normally, the toilets of teahouses and lodges in the higher Himalayan region are eastern toilets, which are usually neat and clean. The toilet facilities, generally, are common and sometimes space might be cramped. However, the newer teahouses and lodges offer attached restrooms. We will provide you with the best option as far as possible in this regard.

While you can choose from a wide range of food in Kathmandu and Pokhara, you will mostly be served local Nepali meals, Daal Bhat, in the teahouses on the upper regions. However, if you have any special food choices, you should let us know beforehand so that we can work on it. Additionally, we can also provide you with cooking staff if that is your preference.

It is best to trek during the spring season from March to May and the autumn season from September to mid-December. It is not recommended to trek in the region during the monsoon season from June to August or during the winter season from mid-December to February.

Weather in the mountains is notoriously difficult to predict. It is, generally, chillingly cold in nights, whereas, the days are warmer. Since you will be trekking in the spring or autumn season, the weather during the day is comfortably dry and warm. The temperature could be as high as 20-degree c to 15-degree c low, during the daytime.

Yes, it is absolutely possible to add some more days to your trek. We can customize your trek according to your preferences with additional costs including accommodation, food, guides, and porters.
