"Annapurna North base camp trek is newly open and off the beaten trekking trail in Annapurna region. Very few people travel in this region and so tea house facilities are not available in the area of Annapurna north base camp trek."
Annapurna North Base Camp trail separately start from Lete and it takes 6 to 7 days, maybe (approx 5 days) (Lete to Lete) but in a hurry (both ways are, up and down and curves also). We (Sherpa expedition and trekking) suggest the much better trek to Muktinath for good acclimatization than the North Annapurna Base Camp. The whole trail is passable in good weather with special equipment - many domestic villagers go there while looking for Yarsagumba(the hubs of power). There are only two difficult places - the crossing Miristi Khola (the bridge there is seasonal - if there is no bridge it is difficult) and one steep place nearby the pass. So, we suggest the bridge, we need to prepare well. The route is used only to the Annapurna trekking groups and the Annapurna North base camp few trekkers only. This is why we as a reliable and services oriented climbing agency suggest you organize your trip to Annapurna north base camp from a climbing agency with highly experience climbing staffs.
