Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

“A great outdoor adventure that cuts across raw trails into the celestial Annapurna Sanctuary where the landscapes present you nature at its extraordinary best”

In the foothills of the mighty Annapurna, lies its base camp. The area, located in the Nepalese Himalayas, is home to some of the world’s tallest mountains including Annapurna I, Machhapuchhre, Gangapurna, Hiunchuli, Lamjung Himal, and Pisang Peak. This Trekking Trail offers the opportunity to experience the Tibetan culture and view colorful monasteries perched high on mountainsides.

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking gives you one of the best views of the Annapurna range, Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri, Tukuche peak, Dhampus peak, Hiunchuli, Machhapuchhre, Gangapurna, Lamjung Himal other many more great views of mountains you’ve never seen before. This gives you the real adventure of a lifetime. The trek is suited for those who only have time for a short holiday. We will find this trekking route is the best because, in the Annapurna region, Poon Hill is the most panoramic spot on earth, where the views are just mesmerizing. The Trek begins from Nayapul, which is an hour’s scenic drive from Pokhara with some fabulous views of Annapurna (South) and Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) en route. From Nayapul, a half an hour’s walk brings us to Birethanti, situated at the confluence of Modi and Bhurung rivers where here the route divides.

The scenery along the way is constantly changing, so there’s always something new to see. It’s one of the most stunning hikes in the world, and it boasts amazing views of the mountains. It’s also a fantastic introduction to the local culture of Nepal. The villages along the Annapurna trail are very welcoming and the people are very friendly. The journey to base camp follows the valley in between the huge ramparts of Himchuli & Machhapuchhre, eventually emerging into an awesome Amphitheater, where a labyrinth of mountains and Annapurna I tower almost vertically above us.

If you like trekking, you won’t want to miss this amazing adventure!


  • Visit important pilgrimage sites of Hindus and Buddhist people in Kathmandu Valley.
  • Enjoy a panoramic view of mountains including Dhaulagiri(8,167 meters) – the seventh-highest mountain and Annapurna I(8091 meters) – the tenth-highest mountain.

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

This is the second trek we have undertaken with Hiking Himalayas.  In 2010 we trekked to Annapurna base camp, this time we trekked to Everest Base Camp.  We chose to start the trek at Jiri rather than fly direct to Lukla and then fly back to Kathmandu.  Hiking Himalayas Treks  organized all the details of the trip efficiently, from bus and plane tickets to Tims cards.  The trek took 19 days and during all of that time our two porters Depish and Anil and our guide Hari Nepal looked after all our needs.  Hari Nepal is a very knowledgeable guide.  He can accurately assess your ability and therefore how long it will take to get from one place to another.  He knows the country well, not just the trails but also about local people local customs and Nepali culture. He is an excellent companion and one of the happiest people we have ever met. Our two porters were attentive to our needs. We chose an all inclusive package which included airport pick up and departure, accommodation and food as well as the costs of the guide and porters.  We considered the price to be good value and it included little extras like tea and biscuits on arrival at the lodge each evening and fresh fruit with the meal, a nice touch.

Hiking to Everest base camp is demanding and having a guide and porters that you can trust and depend we think is essential.  We would not hesitate to use Hiking Himalayas again and commend them to you.

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

“I recently returned from a successful EBC Trek in Nepal. I was one of a group of three that booked our trip through Hiking Himalayas Treks and Expeditions. Before I get into a few details of the trip, I want to say that I attribute the success of the trek and my overall happiness to the Hiking Himalayas team. My next trip to Nepal will absolutely involve them.

Starting with our arrival in Kathmandu, Raj Nepal made us feel at home and made us feel comfortable by effectively managing his team and all of the logistics. At no point through our entire trip in Nepal did we have to worry about drivers, flights, or hotels. We also had to change our flight from Lukla to Kathmandu, but Raj took care of this without issue.

Both Raj Nepal and his brother Hari Nepal (who was our guide during the Everest Base Camp trek) have been working in the trekking/climbing/tourism industry for around 15 years…and it was definitely apparent during our trek. The personal relationships and experience that they have developed during that time make them invaluable resources to anyone wanting to have a successful trek. During our trek, we stayed in lodges owned by families that they have known for a long time and those personal relationships made us feel very welcome and relaxed. Also, the knowledge of the area (Hari Nepal is a walking Himalayan Encyclopedia) and the attention to our health made this trek as much of a learning experience as it was a life experience.

The attention to our health became very important to us because we saw a few teams having to delay their trip due to altitude sickness. For example: in Tengboche, a trekker from another group was suffering from a bad case of altitude sickness. His guide came to Hari for advice, and ultimately a team of 6 including Hari and Tek (one of our porters) guided this man to a lower elevation. As a client, it was extremely reassuring that not only our guide and porters reacted quickly in that situation, but they were the people that other guides came to for advice and help.

If you are considering trekking in the Himalayas, I definitely recommend contacting the Hiking Himalayas team. The value of the services they provide is top notch, and you’ll be gaining some great friends.”

Hi there!

Just wanted to share a few words about our experience during our trek to the EBC in March 2013. My 14 year old son joined me, and needless to say, we had a fantastic time! He even wrote a blog peppered with dozens of pictures, he took over 2,000 photos and short videos during our 16 days in Nepal and one day in Dubai…

After the initial excitement of deciding to go to Nepal, we had the challenge of finding a reliable tour guide and a good porter. As I had back problems since a kid, carrying a full load was out of question for me (so we only hiked with a larger day pack, each). Also, traveling with a 14 year old made the preparations all the more critical, although he was/is/will be in a better shape than me…. After carefully reviewing the gazillion advertisements, recommendations, web sites, tour books, and contacting their former clients, we selected Raj Nepal’s team ( to handle our trip once we land in Kathmandu.

It could not have been better organized! Our Guide Om knew the trek inside out; he was very thorough and made sure we are always safe and taken care of. Our porter  was very helpful indeed, carried our additional packs without a glitch. We also made sure we properly train for this trip, and even spent close to three weeks in an altitude tent in preparation of 18,000 plus feet. I know, I know, most people do not need all this, but I always like to get ready, at least for the obvious. Then just enjoy the ride and the many surprises!

Indeed, we enjoyed our stay in Nepal; I recommend it – what a great bonding time it was for the two of us!! Thanks for reading this post.

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

Myself, my wife and our daughter undertook a trekking to the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) in Nepal during 7-16 October, 2013. We have been preparing for this trip for quite sometime, having visited the Ghorepani Pun Hill and Mohare for the last two years as a warm up. The trip to the ABC has been the most memorable and fascinating treks that we have undertaken so far. It was not an easy decision to go there with our daughter, who is just about 9.5 years old. The trek can be classified as moderate in terms of difficulty level but is extremely rewarding. We followed the route passing through Nayapul, Jhinu, Chomrong, Bamboo, Deurali, MBC and ABC and followed the same route back. It took us 6 days to go up and 4 days to return. We could have reduced the time by one day during the ascent but decided to spend a night in MBC in order to avoid any altitude related issues.

The Annapurna Base Camp provides an awesome display of sheer raw power of Nature. There, one is at an alpine territory, surrounded by majestic high peaks, while sitting almost at the edge of glaciers dotted by deadly crevices. The silence of the base camp is disturbed sometimes by the crackling sound coming from the movement of the glaciers and once in a while from the sound of a distant avalanche rolling down the faces of the Annapurnas. The whole scenario invokes a feeling of awe and trepidation, which is reinforced by the memorials of the missing climbers dotting the place. There is no soothing feeling associated with the ABC. On the other hand, a part of the trek, especially between Jhinu Danda and Chomrong, provides a beautiful vista of lush green vegetation, milky white snow peaks and weather permitting, crystal clear blue skies. We were very lucky to have witnessed this beautiful combination with only a handful of small white clouds floating around, as a gentle reminder of how very fortunate we are.

We used the services of the the Hiking Himalayas Treks and Expidition (, whose owner Raj Nepal was our guide. In our previous two treks also we used his services and we are again totally satisfied with Raj ( I would very much recommend this trek to anyone with moderate level of fitness and I would be happy to provide further information about it.
