Overview

  • Price: $1100 (Negotiable/ Flexible as per the service requirements)

Annapurna is a Sanskrit name which literally means “full of food grains”, but is normally translated as “Goddess of the Harvests”. In Hinduism, “Annapurna is the universal and timeless kitchen-goddess, the mother who feeds”. Without her there is starvation, a universal fear: This makes Annapurna a universal goddess.

This trek leads you to North West of Pokhara through villages, glaciers, gorges and water falls. The principal peaks of the western portion of the great Annapurna Himal, including Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Fang, Annapurna, Gangapurna, Annapurna 3 and Machhapuchre (Fishtail), are arranged almost precisely in a circle about 10 miles in diameter with a deep glacier- covered amphitheater at the center.

From this glacier basin, known as Annapurna sanctuary the Modi Khola knifes its way south in narrow gorge fully 12,000 ft. deep. Further south, the George opens up into a wide and fertile valley, the domain of the Gurungs. The middle and upper portions of Modi Khola offer some of the best short trekking routes in Nepal, and the valley is located so that these treks can be easily combined with treks into the Kali Gandaki region to the west.

Best Season

The best season for Annapurna Base Camp Trek is autumn (mid Sept to mid Dec) and spring (March to May). These seasons offers the best views of the scenery as the weather is warm and sunny with hardly any rain. The nights are cold and can fall to the freezing point.. Winter (Dec, Jan, and Feb) is also good for Annapurna Base Camp Trek, only colder (obviously). The trekking routes are crowded during spring and autumn but during winter the routes are not packed and we could enjoy some alone time with nature.

Accommodations

The Accommodation on the Trek will be on twin sharing basis. Those accommodations will provide standard services, food and location. Important of all sanitation and hygiene is our prime concern while choosing the accommodations. The accommodations in the Kathmandu will have attached bathroom facilities but while on the Trek some of the lodges and Tea house at some places will have shared washroom and toilets. If we are a solo traveler, we will share a room with someone else of the same sex of our group. If we prefer a single room, we may indicate our preference and get single rooms upon request by paying a single supplement of USD 250. Note that single rooms are readily available in Kathmandu and the trekking regions at lower elevation but it might be difficult to find a single room at higher elevations

Meals

The meal that we will be serving you will be Nepalese food as well as all types of international cuisine (Tibetan, Continental, Italian, Indian, etc.). Breads, drinks, snacks and chocolates are also included in our menu. . Breakfast and dinner will be served from the tea house or from a lodge menu where we spend the night and lunch will be served on the way to our destination. A welcome dinner, a farewell dinner and breakfast will be served during our stay in Kathmandu and breakfast will be served in Pokhara.

Health and Fitness

While on the trek taking care of owns health is the foremost important task. It is can be much better if you are a passionate walker having the ability to walk at least 6-8 hours a day with a light day pack. It takes a lot of things to accomplish this trek successfully.

Excellent health, Physical fitness, Positive attitude, Self-confidence and Strong determination is required to walk in the High altitude as it is more physically demanding than walking in the lower altitude. Exercising and jogging regularly for some weeks prior to the trip is a good idea to enhance our strength and stability. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skill is required for this trip.

It is vital to consult a doctor before taking the trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should inform us before booking the trek. If you want to do the same trek in a more relaxed way, Nepal Adventure Advisor has a 16-days itinerary for Annapurna Vase camp Trek too.
