Particularly, Nepal also has five seasons like many other countries; Spring, Summer, Monsoon, Autumn, and Winter in hand. However, Spring and Autumn are the best seasons among them to go to the Annapurna base camp for trekking and hiking, the months of Spring are from March to May, and the months of Autumn are from Sep to Nov, these months of the year for trekking to ABC or any treks in Nepal is fantastic and offers great sceneries with the stable weather and moderate temperatures.

Itinerary

Expand all +Collapse all -

After breakfast at your hotel this morning, we take our scenic drive to Pokhara by tourist bus. This ride should take approximately seven hours if there weren’t so much traffic on the way, but you certainly don’t have to worry about getting bored along the way. As we leave the capital city behind, you’ll enjoy watching the rural landscapes of Nepal pass by your window: lush jungles, terraced fields of barley, glacial rivers sparkling in the sun, and icy mountains towering over it all. When we arrive in Pokhara, you’ll quickly understand why it’s popular with adrenaline junkies. You could easily spend a week hang gliding, bungee jumping, zip-lining, and whitewater rafting here. But Pokhara is also the gateway to the Annapurna Base Camp Trek, and tomorrow morning our hike will get underway in earnest. For tonight, we’ll pick out one of the best available hotels and enjoy a hearty meal before turning in.

  • Driving time: 6-7 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast (Included)
  • Maximum Elevation: 850m/2788ft

The first day of our 8 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek begins in the scenic lakeside city of Pokhara. After enjoying a hearty breakfast, we’ll meet our driver and travel to a small village called Nayapul and a short walk to Birethati to collect our trekking permits.  It’s all on foot from here, and our trek gets underway in earnest as we cross picturesque suspension bridges, hike past sparkling waterfalls, and cross alpine meadows where yaks graze and Gurung villagers tend to crops of buckwheat and millet. As we approach our destination of Ghandruk, we’ll even start to earn some breathtaking views of snowcapped mountains.

Ghandruk itself is a sprawling hillside village where you’ll meet plenty of friendly Gurung villagers as we settle into our accommodations. We’ll be staying at one of the local trekking lodges or teahouses. This is how overnight trekking is usually done in Nepal, and you’ll reap the rewards of a home-cooked meal and a warm place to sleep. Once we get checked in, you can relax in the village with a hot mug of tea as dusk gathers over the summits of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, and the fishtail-shaped. In the evening, we may go to visit the Gurung museum and walk around the village with beautiful views of the Himalayas. 

  • Accommodation Type: Trekking Lodge (Tea House)
  • Hiking Time: 4-5 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner (Included)
  • Max Elevation: 1,940m/6,365ft

After our first breakfast in the mountain, we climb for around an hour up to Kimrungdanda. On the way, we can enjoy great views of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Fishtail Mountain (Machhapuchhre), and Ganggapurna. From the top of this Kimrungdada, a steep descent takes us to the Kimrong Khola. Then we back up for another steep ascent from Kimrong Khola to Chere Danda, we descend for a while, and then it’s a gentle walk to Chhomrong. Chhomrong is a beautiful form village located on the lap of the giant Annapurna massive. The mesmerizing views are seen from the hotel. Overnight in Xhhomrong. 

  • Accommodation Type: Trekking Lodge (Tea House)
  • Hiking Time: 5-6 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner (Included)
  • Max Elevation: 2,170m/7,120ft

We’ve already been trekking in the western Himalayas for a few days, so perhaps the name of our next destination on the Annapurna Base Camp Trek should come as no surprise. Our sights are set on a tiny group of lodges collectively known as Himalaya. To get there, we’ll descend from Chhomrong and cross a suspension bridge over the Chhomrong Khola before following the trail to Sinuwa. The trail will bring us through lush green forests and past iridescent waterfalls, and the ridgeline at Sinuwa affords beautiful mountain views that rival anything we’ve seen so far. From here, the trail alternately ascends and descends through bamboo woodlands, where lucky trekkers might be able to spot langur monkeys. Upon reaching Himalaya at last, we’ll make sure to get plenty of rest—tomorrow is a big day!

  • Accommodation Type: Trekking Lodge (Tea House)
  • Hiking Time: 5-6 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner (Included)
  • Maximum Elevation: 2820m/8828ft

Without a doubt, today is the most exciting day on our Annapurna Base Camp Trek itinerary. We’ll visit not one, but two separate base camps within the space of just a few hours. Our path sets out across ancient glacial moraines and through small stands of birch to approach the coveted Annapurna Sanctuary. There is some risk of encountering an avalanche here, and we’ll check with locals to assess the condition of the trail before proceeding. Soon we’ll find ourselves at Machapuchare Base Camp, where the soaring summits of Annapurna I, Annapurna III, Annapurna South, and Hiunchuli dominate the scene. It’s hard to imagine that the spectacle could get any better than this—but we still have a couple of hours to trek and a few hundred meters to climb.

Our ultimate goal is Annapurna Base Camp, and it’s nothing short of superb. The Annapurna massif itself stretches across 50 kilometers of Himalayan territory, and the Annapurna Sanctuary gives you a front-row seat to witness the sheer majesty of its grandeur. Take all the time you’d like to celebrate our accomplishments so far—the photography opportunities here are limitless. When you’re ready for a break, we’ll settle into our lodge here at base camp and sit down to a hot meal before bed.

  • Accommodation Type: Trekking Lodge (Tea House)
  • Hiking Time: 5-6 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner (Included)
  • Maximum Elevation: 4130m/13545ft (ABC)

From the ABC, we retrace our steps to Bamboo or a little further to Sinuwa for a better view on our second last day in the mountains. However, today’s trek is downhill, so it shouldn’t be very difficult. Besides, we will always have the company of the extraordinary landscape to cheer us up from the first step to the last step of hiking through the majestic land of the Himalayas. Coming back to Sinuwa is a little challenging in terms of stairs but worth it with better views of the lower valley of the region. Overnight in Sinuwa.

  • Accommodation Type: Trekking Lodge (Tea House)
  • Hiking Time: 5-6 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner (Included)
  • Maximum Altitude: 2,310m/7,579ft

    From start to finish, this experience was incredible! The website was easy to understand and informative. Dil who managed the logistics prior to the trek was incredibly helpful, providing all the necessary information and answering any and all questions (while I lived in Nepal and didn’t have time to plan a trek!). My lovely guide, Arpan, went above and beyond to make this experience fantastic! I had a cold the first few days, and he was always caring for my well-being, and looking out for me. He made the experience very enjoyable, informative, comfortable, and fun! I would highly recommend him as a guide. We had such a wonderful view of the mountains, and I absolutely will do another trek with Alpine Ramble in the future!

  • Filipa D - September 22, 2021

    I totally recommend Alpine Ramble as your guided trekking company wherever in Nepal. Since the beginning Dil was always ready to answer all my questions, reply fastly to my emails and help me to choose the best itinerary. He was always very open to any suggestions and changes, and easy to comunicate with, which i appreciated a lot. They picked me up in the Airport and were very welcoming since i arrived in Nepal.
    I did the ABC trek for one week with Amar, and it was unforgettable! Amar was very caring, respectful, and always gave his best to make me feel confortable and motivated through all the week. Even when i got an injury in the last days, he was super patient and helpful :) Thank you Amar, it wouldnt have been the same without you!
    During the week i also had the opportunity to spend almost 3 days with Arpen, who was also very helpful, funny and a great guide! What a fun and amazing time we had alltogether on the way to the Base Camp!
    For sure i would book again with Alpine. Thank you Dil, Amar and Arpen! It was a blast!

This is all thanks to my excellent guide Aysush and Trip organiser Dil. Thanks you both so much for making my experience the best possible.

    Aysush you were great, you showed me the way and looked after me making sure I was fed, watered and showered (sometimes solar powered 😉) and above all else getting the most from my incredible journey. I remember being stuck at Macchaputre after a hail storm/blizzard and you were excellent as always with making me feel comfortable and coming up with a new plan to trek at 430 the next day to ABC once the weather cleared. This was the most exciting days ever, trekking into the sunrise and the truly awesome scenery, I really could not believe it!
    You also rescued me from Pokhara airport when I decided to stay one more night (but that is another story, carpe diem 😉)

    I've never done an extended an trek or been to Nepal before. So if you're thinking of taking the plunge and up for a rewarding challenge then I massively recommend Alpine Ramble to take you on an unforgettable trip!

    Are You dreaming of going to Nepal and go for some great trek? You don't have company or any idea how to organise Yourself? I strongly recommend You trek with AR. Fisrt of all Dil and his Team will welcome You warmly and pick up from the airport. Will spend time with You to discous any details and clear Your doubts. Finally You will attend a trek with a professional and experience guide and porter, if need! I've done my Trek to ABC and I am extremely happy for all - company and care I've got from my Team.I had pleasure to trek with one of most experienced Guides - Dilman and Saugat. Their knowledge and situations awarnes are pricles. Dilman it's ready to advise in any point of time and share his knowledge. Saugat was extremely helpful and took care of me in a way I don't need to worry about anything. He was always ready whenever I need something. It made my trek very comfortable experience. We also trek with Addit, as he was helping with carrying stuff (strong and fast I would say :). Apart of experience and professionalism, they just grow up in place we trek and they know every corner. And most important is..we had a lot of fun :) on the way! Guys create a great athmosphere. We became a friend's and trek was a pleasure (even if we get wet in the rain hehe). I enjoyed everyday of our trip!I felt safe and in good hands. Whenever possible, Dil was in touch with me and give a planty of his time to make sure my trip it's great and safe.Definitely would come back to Nepal and do other activities with Alpine Ramble Treks. Thanks You for taking care of me. Namaste.

    We did ABC trek In 7 days, beginning at 29.10. Everything was perfect from the beginning to the end. We met Dil & Sujal (Guide) at our hotel day before travelling from Kathmandu to Pokhara, and we got detailed information about our trek.

    Sujal and Prasanta (Porter) were such a nice and kind, always smiling and asking is everything ok. They organised everything so well and made things easy for us.

    I can definitely recommend Alpine Ramble Treks for everyone!
