“Picture yourself standing within the sacred confines of the Annapurna Sanctuary: a ring of impossibly beautiful Himalayan mountains, frozen with permanent glaciers and dusted with fresh snowfall from the very top of the world. This is the ultimate destination of the Annapurna Base Camp Trek—and when you travel with Alpine Ramble Treks, you’ll get front-row seats to all the wonders of this vast mountain amphitheater.”
Experience all the thrills of the Annapurna Base Camp Trek in just one week
The Annapurna Base Camp Trek, or ABC Trek, is one of the most popular treks in Nepal—and it’s certainly one of the finest. There are plenty of reasons to choose this trek over its many competitors scattered across the length and breadth of the Himalayas: its relative accessibility from Kathmandu, its unique combination of authentic cultural encounters and spectacular alpine scenery, its comfortable teahouse-style accommodations, and its reasonably gentle changes in elevation. But our seven-day Annapurna Base Camp trekking itinerary offers one perk that few other treks in Nepal can match: the opportunity to visit and return from the awe-inspiring Annapurna Sanctuary in just a single week. At Alpine Ramble Treks, we’ve leveraged all of our considerable experience in the trekking industry to make this expedition possible. We’ve arranged the most efficient transportation, acquired the most reliable gear, and trained the best guides in the business to bring you safely along each step of the mighty Annapurna Base Camp Trek. Read on to discover more about this exciting travel opportunity.
Marvel at the intersection of culture and nature during one of the best treks in Nepal
During your adventure on the Annapurna Base Camp Trek, you’ll discover a world of quiet mountain villages where traditional cultures and ancient traditions still hold sway. You’ll visit the lovely towns of Ghandruk, Chhomrong, Deurali, and many lesser-known hamlets where you’ll meet friendly locals eager to share their way of life. These alpine communities have long sheltered beneath the towering mountains of Gangapurna, Machapuchare, Himalchuli, and the mighty Annapurna massif. This combination of ravishing natural beauty and welcoming Himalayan people is precisely what makes the Annapurna Base Camp Trek so unforgettable. While you may have booked your trek in Nepal in order to hike amongst the highest mountains on the planet, you’ll walk away with indelible memories of the locals you’ll meet, the cultural experiences you’ll share, and the renowned hospitality of the Nepali people. For many of our returning guests, this is the true draw of the Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

Best Time of Year for the Annapurna Base Camp Trek
Trekking seasons in Nepal are largely dictated by the summer monsoon, and our short Annapurna Base Camp Trek is no exception. The monsoon typically lasts from June to August, and most visitors consequently choose to hike during the spring months of February to May or the autumn months of September to November. These are the best times of year to enjoy the perfect combination of comfortable temperatures and clear mountain views. But you can hike in the Annapurnas at any time of year, and the snow-laden trails of winter are just as mysterious and evocative as the mist-shrouded hillsides of summer. Whenever you choose to travel, rest assured that Alpine Ramble Treks will put together a trekking adventure that will surpass even your highest expectations.
Annapurna Base Camp Trek Difficulty
Our short Annapurna Base Camp Trek is one of the most accessible hikes in the Himalayas. Most travelers in good health and reasonable physical fitness will be able to complete this itinerary without issue, and no previous trekking experience is required. However, this trek does reach altitudes higher than 4,000 meters, and it’s important to drink lots of water and get plenty of rest in order to let your body adjust naturally to the increased elevation. As always, your guide will look after your progress and ensure that you enjoy a safe and rewarding trek to Annapurna Base Camp.
