On reaching Pokhara city we have a massive Mountain View in front. During a ride from Pokhara to Nayapul we will stop at Naudanda which has all mountains views.

From the starting point at Birathanti, we have a stunning view of Fishtail Mountain and we can see Annapurna’s south on reaching Ulleri viewpoint. Ghorepani village has a view from a hotel room but we can visit the early morning to poon hill to see stunning sunrise and Himalayan Mountain View. We will able to see Dhaulagiri all range, Nilgiti, Dhampus Peak, Barashikhar, Annapurna South, Hianuchuli, fishtail, and many more. Gurung Hill also has almost the same view as poon hill and we can even see some mountains very close.

Machapuchare means Fish tailed and this is believed to be one of the homes of Lord Shiva. It is the holy mountain. The Annapurna base camp is a small cluster of lodges opposite the Annapurna glacier. We can see 360-degree mountain views including Annapurna I.

Trekking Through Forests and Villages

The Annapurna base camp trail takes you through a variety of Vegetation. In the beginning periods, we will walk through different villages some are small and some are big. After passing Banthanti, we will trek through the forests until we reach the Ghorepani. We will be walking on Rhododendrons forests after Ghorepani until reaching the Tadapani village. From Tadapani we will trek down through the forest until reach Chulie then all the way through houses and some small forest to go to Chhomrong village.

Once you cross the Sinuwa village, you will be in Annapurna Sanctuary where forests are dense. As you move higher up towards Deurali, the thick forests give way to tall grass. When we move closer to MBC the terrain turns Alpine. On the way to ABC, you will see patches of grass amidst boulders which are also flowering plants lining the trail.

When we pass Chhomrong on going to Jhinu we don’t have a forest but if you decide to go hot springs pool then you will go through dense forests.

A glance into the culture around Annapurna Base Camp

This Annapurna base camp Trek is a classic tea house trek. We will stay in small lodges which are only possible to accommodate around 30-40 people. All these lodges are run by locals’ people and many people from different parts of Nepal also come as workers during the season. Tourists can get a glimpse into the way of life while talking with the guides, porters, & staff at the tea house.

Due to the Tourist flow, most people speak English so communication is not a problem. All the food served at the tea house is prepared in the Nepalese style. The food is quite similar to the Indian food. The Annapurna region is home to several ethnic groups including the Gurungs, Magars, Thakalis & others. Here the communities have their own languages, customs & traditions.

Hinduism and Buddhism are the two Major religions in the Annapurna region. We will come across temples, stupas & monasteries along the trek. If you are at a Dashain and Tihar festival, you can see many rituals, colourful decorations & local performances.

Adventure Souls in one place

The Annapurna Base Camp Trek attracts mountain lovers from all over the world. In October during the season time.

We have adventure souls at one place at base camp and at different places on trial. All the tea houses became convenient forums to discuss and exchange notes with strangers who could be from anywhere. This kind of experience was only possible on a few treks.

Food and Accommodation on Annapurna base camp trek

Annapurna means full of grains so we don't need to worry about food here. Food around Annapurna is a combination of local and Nepali cuisine. In some places, you can find bakeries as well as lodges offering an extended menu. Most ingredients for them are local and organic.

Trekking requires burning calories and there is no food better than the basic Nepali Style of Dal Bhat. Eating a balanced diet is important, but apart from a few snacks and energy bars, you shouldn't worry much about the food. we can find all kinds of international dishes in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

We can also find many international dishes on the trek. We can have pizza, Burgers, noodles, pasta, curry rice, spring rolls, and many other items on the menu. The menu altogether is the same from start to end. Meat items may not be available on higher parts of Trek.

Talking about Accommodation, the Annapurna base camp trek has lots of hotels and teahouses. It is possible to have a camping trek in the Annapurna area. We can see only a few people doing it. Accommodation is now available from the start to completion preventing the trekkers from heavy packing.

Most of these provide all your basic necessities like food, water, a bed, and a bathroom. Prepare to get used to the Squat toilets which are the most common ones in the area. Rooms are smaller and most have two or more beds for the trekkers to stay. Heating is only possible in the dining room.

Foods are available from the menu card with different options. You will also stop at the tea house for lunch during the trek. If you are thinking about Annapurna trekking then don’t aspect luxury treks staying in luxury lodges.


Transportation on Annapurna base camp trek

We use different transportation on the Annapurna base camp trek. We use private luxury transportation to pick you up and drop you to the international airport. We also use a tourist bus to go to Pokhara and come back from Pokhara.

We can also take a private car, jeep, Toyota Hiace, and bus to Pokhara if the client wants and we have bigger groups. Instead of driving we can fly in and fly out from Pokhara too. We use private transportation to go to Nayapul and drive back from Nayapul too.

If you prefer doing it by helicopter then we also provide you with this facility. Here are the details of transportation we can use to reach Pokhara and start the Annapurna base camp Trek.

By Air (flight)

Different government and private companies provide domestic air services. These flights are operated 7 days a week and several times a day. During peak seasons (autumn and spring), it is most appropriate to book domestic flights in advance and keep re-confirming your tickets.

It takes only 25 minutes to get to Pokhara by flight. Buddha Airlines, Simrik, Shree, and yeti airlines are the main companies. We have two airports in Pokhara. The old airport is for domestic purposes and the new international airport is for Domestic flights also land at the new airport. It just takes 10 to 20 minutes to reach the lakeside from the airport.

By Bus (local bus and tourist Bus)

We have two Bus services to reach Pokhara the first one is Tourist Bus and the Second one is a local Bus.

Tourist Bus

The tourist bus is an alternative for extremely cheap and relaxing travel to Pokhara. They leave Kathmandu from Sorakhutee, opposite prime bank at 7 am every day. It is comparatively more comfortable and somewhat faster and safer.

Cost varies for A/C and non-A/C buses. In Pokhara, some buses pick up passengers in Lakeside and Damside.

Local bus or Micro Hiace

It is the main form of transportation. They are reasonably cheap than flying or by tourist bus. Local buses leave from Kathmandu for Pokhara from the New Bus station located on the Ring road at Gangabu near Balaju going to the Annapurna Trekking or Annapurna Circuit Trek.

There are direct bus services for Dumre and Besisahar from Kathmandu. Likewise, buses for the Dumre and Besisahar leave from the Prithivi Chowk bus park in Pokhara.

For the service to various Annapurna Trekking regions trails such as Ghandruk, Ghorepani, Beni, and ABC trek, bus tickets can get from Banglung bus park. It is also possible to hire a local taxi from Banglung bus park or from the lakeside.

Annapurna base camp trek, Khopra Danda trek, Mardi Himal trek, and Ghorepani poon hill trek are a few famous treks found in this region. For the Going Upper Mustang trek, we should go through this region.

By Private transportation.

This is the best and most comfortable way of reaching Pokhara. It is cheaper than flying and basic luxury seat that makes travel comfortable. it is a bit more expensive than a tourist bus but if bigger groups then it's almost the same.

While travelling on private tourist vehicles we can stop whenever we like and where ever we like.


Heaters Facilities on Annapurna base camp Trek

During the winter season, it's important to be safe from cold. While doing Annapurna base camp trek you will face different temperatures and challenges. The starts & ends at Kathmandu and Pokhara have a good room with Ac which is good facilities from the company. Brings warm and good clothes for the trek which is important to stay warmer. you can stay warm while walking in Kathmandu and Pokhara sightseeing around.

In the beginning, the tea houses in Ghorepani, Tadapani, and Chhorong have heaters called chimneys at dining places. This chimney uses wood to make fire and warmer at dining. We can see the same chimney in Everest region but most make fire from cow and yak dung. The higher part of the area does not have wood for fire and is not allowed to make wood fire.

Instead of wood, they use kerosene for cooking. The tea house has a stove for heating up people at the dining table or under the dining table to keep them warm. The heater here cost charges per person or per group. Heaters Facilities on Annapurna base camp Trek is one of the Good facilities from tea house to all trekkers.

The facilities from people to this Annapurna base camp, Machapuchere base camp, and around is something I like about this area.


Annapurna base camp trekkers responsibility for the Environment

As we know that Annapurna area is visited by many people. These regions are gifts from nature to whole nations and have full of everything. To maintain them and keep them safe, we need to make a balance between the environment and human Beings. Our responsibility to the environment should be known by everyone.

Magic Himalaya Trekking Company in Nepal strongly believes that the environment needs to be protected well. Tourism and trekking activities bring many negative effects on our environment so we need to work to make positive aspects of tourism on the environment. We never hard the animals and plants found in this area. Magic Himalaya is always doing this by working with the Kathmandu Environment education project and many other organizations.

Our company is taking part in different plantation and cleaning events. Never stop our responsibility for the environment always engaged in organizing eco-friendly treks and trips. Annapurna base camp trekkers also have a responsibility to the environment and nature to keep them fresh and unchanged.


​Difficulty on Annapurna base camp Trek

The Annapurna base camp trails have lots of ups and downs. People doing the ABC trek can experience different twists and turns during their journey. The trails are composed of rocky tracks, dense forests, and crossing many suspensions well as wooden bridges.

In between the trek, we will also experience walking on the rugged path and climbing steeply. Trekking in remoteness is one of the main difficulties of the trek. We need to walk 5 to 7 hours of walking and if we want we can add a few hours also.


​Child Policy to be followed

As we all know that Annapurna base camp trek is a high-altitude trek and involves rugged, steep terrain. If you want to bring your child or any underage person with you on a trek then you have to comply with our child policy. The trekker’s stamina and health matter a lot.

Our company request to do a private trip if you are coming with a child and the child needs to have a trek with identified guardian. We want children most travel with mom or dad. If you want to know more details about the child policy then get in touch with us.


Drinking water in Annapurna base camp Trek

Water is the second most important thing to live after the air. You can see water everywhere because 71% of the earth's surface is covered with water. Among them, 96.5 percent of water is held by the ocean.

All water is not possible to drink so we need to be careful while drinking water. We need to take good care of Drinking water during Annapurna visits. We recommended drinking bottled mineral water in Kathmandu and Pokhara because we have water problems in the city. While in the mountain you can drink tap water using water drops or water tablets. we can also buy water in the beginning parts of the trail where as most of the town has a safe drinking water station which cost you to buy water.

The charge is cheaper in comparison to mineral water. You can buy safe drinking water in every teahouse along the way. We can also buy boiled water in every guest house if you prefer hot water. Drinking water in the Annapurna base camp trek is not a big problem because like other things Annapurna is also full of water resources.


​Toilet Facilities on Annapurna base camp trek

Toilet Facilities on the Annapurna base camp trek is not luxury. We can find luxury toilet facilities in a few places of the trek at the beginning and end but the overall facilities are basic. The Everest base camp trek teahouse is Luxury compared to the Annapurna area.

We will have good modern toilet facilities in Kathmandu stay and Pokhara stay. we can have a shower in the room in a few places but most of the teahouses have shower separate and which costs them. we will have water in the toilet but when we go high the water freezers so we need to carry our own toilet paper.

We can buy toilet paper in the teahouse but it cost more expensive so it's recommended to carry it from the city area.


ABC for Honeymoon Couples

Annapurna Base Camp will be the supreme adventure option for any intrepid couples around the world. Honeymoon in the lap of lavish nature and fantastic views are unparalleled.

Add the magical sunrise and sunset over the snow-capped peak and you couldn't ask for more. ABC Trail also boasts a large selection of hotels and lodges to choose from for your ease. Covering a whole lot of Himalayan delights the Annapurna Base Camp trek is an excellent choice for newly married couples.


​Best time to do Annapurna base camp Trek

If you want to complete the trek without any issue then we recommend you to trek Annapurna base camp on peak season time. The weather in the Himalayas can get extremely unstable during the off-season time. The Annapurna base camp trek's best time is from March to April (spring) and October to November (autumn).

Both autumn and spring are peak seasons to trek anywhere in the Himalayas. The best season means lots of people doing the trek from different nations. Many people like to meet new people and interact so this time is perfect for those people. While traveling in peak season make sure you have made all the bookings of accommodation in advance.

Trekking in spring gives you the opportunity to experience the beautiful trail covered with rhododendrons and many other flowers. At this time, the climate is pleasant. The views are also fantastic. Some people like to visit in autumn to experience Nepalese festivals Instead of seeing flowers.

During the off-season time, the Annapurna base camp was still the most visited place after the Everest base camp.


Best Viewpoints of Annapurna Base Camp trek

Annapurna Region has a number of glorious viewpoints showcasing the different shades of the Annapurna Massif. Some of these viewpoints are natural ones i.e., above a ridge or top of a valley.

The others might have a built platform or a lookout point made for your ease. The ABC trekking route by Magic Himalaya has encompassed some of the best viewpoints which are as follows: -

Poon Hill: - Poon Hill is one of the best viewpoints in the Himalayas let alone in the Annapurna region. As a widely popular short trekking destination, one can have a panoramic view of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range from here.

Machhapuchre Base Camp (MBC): Machhapuchre Base Camp on the lap of mount fishtail is the second main destination of the ABC trek. MBC gives the closest view of Mount Fishtail which is often praised as better than that of Mardi Himal Trail.

Annapurna Base Camp

The Annapurna Base Camp itself offers you some breathtaking views like nowhere else. The close view of Annapurna Massif is fantastic alongside the Subranges of the region. The stretch from MBC to ABC gives you Sublime views of the mountains and landscape.

Jhinu Danda

Jhinu Danda is one of the lesser-heard viewpoints only available on the ABC trails by Magic Himalaya. The return walk from ABC passes by Jhinu Danda so you will make the most of this trek.

Apart from these, you can also visit some nearby viewpoints in Kathmandu and Pokhara by adding some days there. Sarangkot and Nagarkot are two of the best sunrise destinations here.


​Immunization/vaccination needed before ABC treks

You don't actually have to take any vaccine, especially for the Annapurna Base Camp trek. The fundamental vaccinations like Typhoid, Tetanus, and Polio that you take every decade with boosters will be fine. Other than that the Himalayas is the healthiest place to trek in the world.


​The general cost for the Annapurna Trekking

The cost of the ABC relies massively on different factors like trekking days, porters, accommodation, and others. It may vary anywhere from over 800 $ to a few thousand depending on your trekking style.

Our package to Annapurna Base Camp fluctuates a little with the hotels you select to stay before and after the trekking days in Kathmandu and Pokhara. Go through the cost includes and improvise your budget for the other things that the package doesn't cover.

You will definitely find the Annapurna base camp trek cost reasonable with our company Magic Himalaya.


​Guides and Porters for ABC trekking

Guides are absolutely necessary for the ABC. Heading to the rural ends of the Himalayas it's best to be accompanied by a person who knows the region and local language. It is not mandatory but barraging in the unknown alone is never suggested. The same doesn't apply to the porters if you can carry your own baggage.

With porters, you can trek freely and are also helping with the local economy. We provide well-trained guides and local porters for the ABC trek for your ease in the region.

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 towns 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, a porter, and some tourists sleeping in the dining room.

They will sleep after dinner is finished and all trekkers go to the room and wake up early before people come for breakfast.

We can see different other items on menu cards such as Pizza, Macaroni, sizzler, Steak, noodles, sherpa stew, Thupka, MoMos, and many more.
