Annapurna Base Camp Trekking takes you to one of the astonishing Himalayan kingdoms where one can experience a country culture and most important naturally blessed highlights including natural waterfalls, awe-inspiring landscapes, traditional settlements, flora and fauna, and breath-taking mountain panorama. The entire Annapurna mountain range is just mesmerizing during trekking in this trail. The trek commences from Pokhara valley after you drive or fly from Kathmandu to Pokhara, one of the astonishing touristic spots in entire Himalaya with marvelous views of Annapurna Himalaya. Among them, Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) is the most dominant. Pokhara itself offers some of the major insights of trekking in this region.

Water Meals and Drinking

The Annapurna base camp trek route has numerous tea houses along the way and every single tea houses has the menu system with different ethnic cuisines foods as well as western meals on the Menu; you will eat as per Menu during the trek, we would highly recommend the vegetable items instead of Meat because meat in the mountain can be effected some time because it may not be used to it for the new travelers in this region. But some places provide you with typical Nepali meals which are different types of international meals. These are prepared by the local supplement. Every tourist Lodge has well-trained cook basically attention for clean, hygienic, fresh and nice testy foods. The variety of drinks and every lodge have safe drinking water or minerals bottles of water you could buy. If you buy a water purification tablet from Kathmandu you can take water from the tap and purify yourself this will be cheaper and help to control the plastic pollution as well. The water you could buy everywhere in the Annapurna region at a reasonable price but the price would go high when you go to high altitude areas. We also recommend you to buy boiled water instead of cold which keeps your body warm.
