FAQ

Answer: while doing the Annapurna base camp trek you will face different kinds of accommodations. On the first day, the accommodations are basic in Tikhadhunga with a clean room and toilet outside but in Ghorepani, we can have an attached bathroom in the room with hot shower facilities. until reaching Chhomrong the accommodations are petty well maintained. We will have basic accommodations with room sharing with other members. In some of the town during the main season, we need to share beds with 6 to 7 people in a big dormitory room. We can also see a guide, porter and some tourists sleeping in the dining room. They will sleep after dinner finished and all trekkers go to the room and wake up early before people come for breakfast. Here we don't have any possibilities of having an attached room or shower because cold and water remain to ice most of the time. Teahouse on Annapurna is a lesser capacity and facility than the teahouse in Everest base camp trek.

Answer: The Annapurna food are almost the same as food on the Everest base camp trek. The only difference is some of the local food. In Annapurna, we called Gurung bread which is Tibetian bread in the Everest area. The famous Dalbhat is also available in all parts of the Annapurna region. We can see different other items on menu cards such as Piza, Macaroni, sizzler, Steak, noodles, sherpa stew, Thupka, MoMos and many more. The food in Annapurna is less costly in comparison to the Everest area. Being one of the top best trekking in Nepal, the Annapurna has full of varieties of food items.

Answer: As we all know that Annapurna base camp Trek is the base camp of Annapurna I. In comparison to Everest Annapurna is less popular which makes Annapurna base camp trek less popular in terms of EBC. Everest is the highest mountain and also very popular as well as well recognized among people. the Everest expeditions are popular than Annapurna which makes Everest base camp trek more popular than Annapurna base camp trek. As we all know that Eveerst is also the home of sherpa and other many 8000 m mountains.

Answer: The word Annapurna means full of grains. Anna means grains and Purna means full of everything. Like the name the Annapurna is full of everything’s. It is so rich in Himalayan as well as nature. This Annapurna is also so rich in culture that makes Annapurna base camp trek busy and popular.

Answer: The Poon hill is the viewpoint for all the mountains as well as villages. We can able to see many more mountains which we cannot see from the Annapurna base camp. For seeing many mountains Annapurna base camp trekking is combined with Ghorepani Poon hill. We will be able to see Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Tukucha peak and many more mountains from poon hill than Annapurna base camp. Not only this, but the Poon hill also used to acclimatize before going staring at Annapurna base camp. This avoids altitude sickness and unsuccessful treks.

Answer: In terms of Mountains it is definitively the Annapurna base camp the best spot. We can see many mountains very close to base camp. In terms of villages and greenery, there are other many viewpoints such as Poon hill and Gurung hill that top the list. Villages like Tadapani and Chhomrong also have the good and close view of mountains like Annapurna south, Hiaunchuli and Fishtail. The Base camp is the highlights of Annapurna base camp trekking.

Answer: Like in Everest base camp trek there are no such kinds of luxury lodges available in the Annapurna area. The Annapurna base camp luxury trek right now is not worthy of selling because of not much difference in accommodations. Other then the room can be separated by service whether luxury or basic but the accommodation is always important while doing trekking. We need to have accommodations booked earlier for Annapurna base camp trekking. The capacity of lodges in base camp is way less than the people visit which makes the accomodation very basic.

Answer: Annapurna base camp trek is also one of the best trekking where we can experience the snow and rains. We need to be careful while doing the trek. We need to take some good types of equipment such as hiking boots, Rain jackets, Sleeping bags and many more. You can buy the types of equipment online or in the Kathmandu store or Pokhara store.

To check what kinds of equipment need for the trek, you can visit the blog about the Packing list.

Answer: Yes we can book through Annapurna base camp trek contact number details which are one of our blogs. We can contact most of the teahouse to book earlier. In some places the overflow of people so they give room to those people who reached earlier. At that time we will send our sherpa earlier so that he can take room before we reached. We can also start walking earlier so that we will reach the place on time.

Answer: While trekking to Annapurna base camp, we need to know about many things such as weather, teahouses, food and many other things. All these things will help you to do trek easily if you will have knowledge about that. so we have a blog about the things to know before Annapurna base camp trek. This blog will be really useful for anyone who is making a plan to do ABC.
