Physical Condition And Experience Requirements 

The Annapurna Base Camp Trek is normal trekking of Annapurna region, it is possible to trek with a basic level of fitness, a good training plan before your Annapurna Base Camp trip will make that much more enjoyable. It doesn’t require any climbing skills. We have seen many different ages of travelers are completing this trek like old, young, overweight and underweight and they all are very much appreciated about the journey, as a non-technical trek that does not require crampons, walking poles, oxygen cylinders, ropes, and technical equipment.  But our company will be provided the warm down jackets and sleeping bags if you do not have your own. A normal ABC trek is accessible to most trekkers who have some genus of fitness level and decent drive with a lot of stamina to last two weeks on the cold weather in the mountain.

if you could convenience yourself to take some normal pre-training courses like daily physical exercises, jogging, running, climb the staircase and walking down, cycling, swimming and hitting the gym, etc that would be greatly helped to accomplish the journey easier.

Alpine Ramble Treks will be accommodated in the best hotel like 3 stars categories with the good facilities of WIFIHot Shower, and AC room with the best breakfast services on the selection in Kathmandu and all Accommodations are provided on the twin-sharing basis. The single supplement will be served if you are a single traveler. Accommodations during the trek in the mountains, basically you will be staying at basic trekking lodges where you will have a nice and clean room with warm blankets, pillows, and comfortable matrices ( matrices size cannot be very thick size but still comfortable). All the facilities during the Annapurna base camp trek are not as same as Kathmandu but still very pleasant and suitable. Do not expect everything is the high level of standards in the mountain. Alpine Ramble Treks would be glad to ensure the attached bathroom in every possible place even on the Annapurna region in booking, in some places; you have to compromise in sharing a bathroom at a high altitudes area because there is no room with attached bath have being built at this elevations area.
