Home > Nepal > Annapurna Base Camp Trekking
Annapurna Base Camp trek also has known Annapurna Sanctuary. Considered one of Nature's most beautiful spots in the world, the trail leads up from Pokhara along the Modi River to its sources amidst the great Annpurna. It is the most intensely scenic trek in Nepal. The Annapurna range is a vast massif with several peaks, which lies between the Kali Gandaki, and Marsyandi river valley passing through the Machhapuchare and Annapurna base camp. In here, the trekker is surrounded by the awesome grandeur of the Annapurna massif. The lower part of Annapurna Base Camp Trekking is rich for Gurung culture and ethnology.

The Annapurna base camp trekking known as Annapurna Sanctuary trekking is a true classic, amidst some of the highest and most spectacular mountains in the world. You will reach two popular base camps these are Machhapuchare base camp and Annapurna Base camp. Annapurna base camp trekking trail give you beautiful views of Himalaya range including Machapuchare known as fishtail mountain, Lamjung Himal, Annapurna I, Annapurna III, Annapurna South, Hiunchuli Peak, Gangapurna and If go through Ghorepani Poon hill then you will enjoy with beautiful sunrise and see nicer views of the Himalayas “Mt. Dhaulagiri, Tukuche peak, Nilgiri and many more white peaks.” Our Annapurna base camp treks will be begins from close to beautiful city Pokhara that means we will arrange vehicle from Pokhara and drive to Nayapul, Phampus Phedi (surkhet Phedi) or Beni Bazaar It depends on your choice of the trekking option for Annapurna base camp trekking.

If you begin Annapurna base camp trekking / Annapurna sanctuary trekking from Beni Bazaar it will be nice and long but very interesting because you will reach at Tatopani (natural hot spring where is possible to take bath) after Tatopani you will begin to climb up hill where you will meet many different ethnic groups and green valley. If go within one day to Ghorepani from Tatopani is very difficulty because it is all the way up hill so better to stay night at Shikha from where you will see nice view of Dhaulagiri, Tukuche Peak and Nilgiri and next day short to climb to Ghorepani and follow the Annapurna Base camp trekking route. If you start Annapurna sanctuary trek from Nayapul this trek trail goes through Ghorepani poon hill which is nice and panoramic route but if have short holiday for trekking in Nepal you can start trek from Dhampus phedi for Annapurna Base camp trekking. Chumrung village is gateway of Annapurna sanctuary trek even you choose any optional routes of the trekking to go Annapurna base camp you have to go through Chomrung village because from Chomrung only one trail goes to Annapurna base camp trekking.

We climb high above the Modi Khola River, through the ''gates'' of the Sanctuary. Once inside, we are afforded incredible views of the Himalayas. In Annapurna base camp (4130m) there is also have Teahouse facilities so en routes they have teahouse / Trekkers lodge facilities managed by the local people and given idea by Annapurna conservation area project (ACAP). The food menu provides by ACAP so mostly every teahouse have a same menu.

Lodges management committee also builds camping ground and kitchen for Tent camp/Camping trekking so camping charge will be requires to camp. Permit for Annapurna base camp trekking only apply to have Annapurna conservation area project (ACAP) entry permit it cost RS 2000 per person and Trekkers’ information management system (TIMS).

Prepare

In addition to obvious items such as hiking boots, warm clothing, UV sunblock etc., here is list of things that you might not have considered taking along, but that can greatly enhance the quality and comfort of your journey.

Soft and light shoes (sneakers or kung-fu shoes are perfect) -
after a long hike in inflexible hiking boots, you will be extremely happy to have some light and soft footwear to to wear around the lodge or in the village.

Lightweight knapsack -
this is very useful for short trips away from your lodge, and will save you having to lug your large backpack along. It should be big enough for your camera and a change of clothes and sleeping bag, if you plan to spend a night away.

Lightweight sleeping bag -
as most (all?) lodges can offer you blankets, a light sleeping bag should be sufficient for the journey. Taking a light bag will save you valuable space in your backpack.

Fabric bandaids -
blisters on the feet can turn a wonderful walk into a hell. Bandaids (sticking plasters) should be immediately applied to any area of the foot that there is irritation and friction - don't wait for the blister to develop before doing this. However, only fabric made bandaids will stick to a sweaty foot. Others (even those that claim to be water-proof) will fall off in minutes. A good alternative to bandaids is duct tape. Works great for blisters and also proves invaluable in many other ways.

Personal First Aid and Emergency Gear -
First aid kit with moleskin and bandages designed to cover blisters Sunscreen lotion. Energy snacks. So many different types are available buy a variety and sample them to learn which brand gives you the biggest boost. An emergency kit in case you get lost. Include a whistle, compass, space blanket, string, duct tape, matches and iodine tablets. Flashlight and extra batteries, Binoculars, Knife, Extra pair of prescription glasses, Bug Repellent.

Are You in Good Enough Shape?-

You may walk a mile or two on pavement comfortably, but can you walk four or five miles a day ? or more? on varied terrain without collapsing on the couch for the rest of the afternoon? Once you've chosen a trip, Ghale Treks will inform you, what level of physical fitness you should be at to take the trip. Then, create a plan to ensure you are ready physically.

Ways to Get in Shape for Walking and Hiking -

For many trips it's okay to start your training a month or two before you leave for vacation. Spending time at the gym working with weights and on a treadmill, StairMaster or stationary bike is one route. Supplement the training with long walks or hikes on weekends, preferably on dirt trails instead of pavement. Jogging on toughens you up and increase your agility and stamina.

Bring the Right Pack -

Bring a pack that fits your body comfortably? whether it's a day pack to hold your water bottle, snacks, sunscreen lotion and jacket ? or a pack designed to hold enough gear for a multi-day hike through the mountains.
