“The Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) trek is the tranquil and best scenic base camp trek in the Himalayan world.”
Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) (4,130m) is commonly known as Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. This trek rewards you with a fine close-up view of mountains without the acclimatization problems. Although it has some long steps ascents and descents, the trekking trail to spectacular ABC completes in one week. Following the Annapurna Base Camp trekking route gradually uphill, we get to enjoy extensive views of Hiunchuli, Machhapurchre (Fishtail) and Annapurna South peaks.
The Annapurna Base Camp trek offers you outstanding 360-degree panoramic views of the Annapurna ranges. The trek is going to be more pleasing in the spring season as Gurans (Rhododendron flower) will make the whole forest colorful with red, pink and white. Nevertheless, it is possible to do the Annapurna Base Camp trek all year round.
In Annapurna Base Camp there are tremendous views of the close-vertical south face of Annapurna I (world 10th highest mountain- 8,091m) standing above the sanctuary to the northwest. The ascent of this face in 1970 by an expedition led by Chris Bonington remains one of the most remarkable climbs of 8000 meters peak. Generally, the morning is the best time for the views of the mountains. Mountains seen from ABC are Tharpu Chuli (tent peak 5663m), Singu Chuli peak; 6501m, Hiunchuli; 6441m and South Annapurna; 7219m. On our way, we can observe the memorial Chorten (Buddhist stone monument) build in memory for well-known climber Anatoli Boukrev from Kazakh who died in 1997 by an avalanche. That is the main view where you will see prayer flags with different countries flags attached to them. On the left side of the way to Chorten, you will see shepherds' hut. Next, to that, you will see a flock of sheep in the evening. When you follow few minutes ahead of shepherds' hut you will see another stoned Chortens which are built for the memory of three Korean climbers; Park Young Seok, Shin Dong-Min and Kang Ki- Seok who lost their contact with the base camp team on 18th October 2011. Three minutes beyond the Korean memorial Chorten, you have a wonderful sight of Annapurna glacier view.

(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend better to bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
You will be staying at the 3-star Hotel in Kathmandu and Pokhara. During the trek, we provide you comfortable accommodation lodges run by local families. You may find some teahouses standard but most of the time you see a basic room normally has two beds, a mattress, and a pillow. The lodges during the trek generally have attached washroom, at a higher elevation, you must use a shared washroom. All accommodation is on twin sharing basis except in the high altitude where you have to adjust in dormitories.
You will be served a BB plan on Kathmandu, Pokhara and authentic Nepalese food during the trek. All meals (Breakfast, Lunch, and dinner) included. You may not have a cuisine as per your desire but a teahouse of this trail offers you International cuisine as well (Tibetan, Indian, continental, etc.). After Sinuwa you will not be served any meat items and you are also not allowed to carry any meat items. We recommend you to use water purifying pills as you get to have stream water or else you can buy mineral water, remember that it cost 5 times expensive than in Kathmandu.
ABC trek is done throughout the year, however, mid-September to November (autumn) and March to May (spring) are considered best seasons. During this season, it rewards grand spectacles of blooming rhododendron flowers. This trek offers you great opportunity to witness the beauty of the Annapurna region within a short period of time
Doing a trek for 7 days straight inevitably is tiring and it certainly benefits to be fit, this does not mean you will end up being wonderfully mountain fit. So, do train beforehand, make sure you do regular exercise, but don’t overdo it. This will help you a lot even if you haven’t done any kind of hiking or trekking activities.

Thanks so much, Sherpa Expedition and Trekking company, his director provided me a very experienced guide Wangchu Sherpa for my trekking in the Annapurna Base Camp. He was very serious and had lots of knowledge about mountains, Nepalese culture and he taught me so much useful information about local people's lives. He always tried his best to provide me good service, he organized everything from Kathmandu to the end of my trek, perfect services. Wangchu Sherpa is a very responsible and friendly guide with whom you will feel confident. I highly recommended Wangchu Sherpa as a guide if you plan to come to Nepal.
