The Annapurna region is famous all over the world as one of the best trekking routes. Scenic beauty coupled with the friendliness of the villagers on the way, this trek is bound to be in your memories forever. It is not a challenging trek. As you hike on this route, you’ll go through rhododendron forests, cultural villages, lush green hills, and rocky slopes and ridges. So, Annapurna Base Camp Trek has everything for you to enjoy.

You’ll hike through the villages of Chomrong, Sinwa, Dovan, and Deurali as you explore their customs and traditions. The villagers will greet you kindly and treat you with warmth. Their hospitality also further elevates your experience.

On the way, you will also pass through Machhapuchhre Base Camp. You’ll also continuously see the panoramic views of Machhapuchhre, Nilgiri, and the Annapurna range.

More than Just Mountains

The view of the terrace farms and the farmlands are also beautiful. You’ll pass through Gurung and Magar settlements and know about their culture. Moreover, small Gumbas and Chortens along the way will evoke a sense of calmness in you. Because of the moderate altitude, you are not likely to suffer from any altitude sickness. In addition, the trekking route is also less slope and more flatlands. You’ll spend the nights in comfortable lodges, and there are sufficient numbers of well-facilitated tea houses on the way.

Hence, Annapurna Base Camp Trek is one of the most renowned trekking adventures. And that is due to the reasons mentioned above. The trek is best to do in the autumn and spring season. We provide experienced guides and also affordable price for this beautiful trek. Additionally, you can also take a look at our Annapurna Sanctuary Trek for a slightly different experience.

Annapurna Base Camp Weather

During the spring season, the Annapurna Base Camp trail has warm weather with blossoming flowers and verdant trees. It offers the rhododendron forests in full bloom along with a view of the mountains unhindered by clouds. It is considered the second-best season to trek after autumn. The spring season lasts from March to May.

The summer season brings rainfalls and landslides in the trail. So, this season is also called the off-season as only a few trekkers opt to go trekking this time of the year. The paths can get muddy and slippery while clouds mostly conceal the views of the mountains. The months of June, July and mid-August have this weather.

The autumn season is considered the best season to trek in Annapurna region. It is because this season provides some spectacular views of the mountains along with the pleasant weather. It might get somewhat chilly at night, but it’s warm during the day. Moreover, as it follows the monsoon rain, the forests and mountains look alive and clean. The autumn season begins at the end of August, September and ends in November.

The winter season brings some frigid weather with almost freezing climate in the morning and at night. Furthermore, most of the trail is covered in thick snow and becomes very difficult to tread. In some cases, the higher altitude areas remain closed not allowing trek.

    Amazing ABC Trek, responsible tour guide

    We went to Pokhara in November 2019 for a visit and decided to book a trip to ABC with North Nepal Travels & Treks. Our guide was Neeraj, who was very thoughtful and took care of all our needs. He was knowledgeable of the surrounding mountains and Nepali traditions. The porter was also very helpful and nice. Both of them were very friendly so that 6 days of trekking with them were very enjoyable. Thank you so much for the memorable trip.
    Highly recommend to all friends!

    Trekking and more with Ananda guide
    We had a really nice trekking experience with Ananda. He explained us all kind of plant and animals. Later he invite us to have a lunch on his family house, where his wife cooked for us. It was an amazing experience know how Nepali lives and how they eat. She cooked the best food we ate here in Nepal, all organic food and best asiatic food and tea we never had! The wife took a lot of care about don’t use them water, which make sick European people like us, what a lot of reastaurant doesn’t do. The day after, he bring us all over Pokhara to visit several things, which were amazing.I’m thankful to Ananda and his beautiful family Next time we’ll be in Nepal, for sure we’ll contact him. Highly recommended!

    Kudos to North Nepal Tours
    I had the most amazing experience with my siblings, recently completing the ABC trek. The trek was organized by Mohan Raj Bhandari if North Nepal Tours. We had a wonderful team of sherpas and a guide who ensured that we were comfortable and enjoyed our trek. Mohan personally co-ordinated and made us feel at home both during the Trek and our stay at Pokhara. Mohan has been very patient and professional in handling and responding to all our queries before and during the trek. Grateful for making our experience a memorable one.
