Useful Info

Annapurna Base Camp Trek difficulty

With a bit of patience and determination to complete the trek, we believe anyone can do Annapurna Base Camp Trek. Of course, it's a trek in the Himalayas, and the route is bound to involve difficulties, but the challenges Annapurna Base Camp Trekking offers are manageable.
With our experienced on-field crew, one can smoothly complete the Annapurna Base Camp Trek 14 Days. Previous trekking experience is not mandatory for this trek, however, you have to be able to walk 5 to 6 hours on a daily basis. The terrain is rugged and steep at some places. There will be many ascents & descents throughout the trek.
You will be traversing at a high altitude and in a remote area, so there are other underlying challenges like inadequate services, disconnection with the modern cities, limited food menu, etc. So, the trek also demands you to be mentally ready for remote survival. Things will not be super tough but not convenient as well.
If you are a new trekker, then take your time to prepare for the trek. Increase your walking hours with a bag. You can hike or do other activities like cycling, swimming, and running to increase your stamina. Focus on your cardio and core body strength. Make your legs strong.
 

Acclimatization and Altitude Sickness

Acclimatizing your body with the rise in elevation is very important if you do not want to suffer from altitude sickness. Our Annapurna Base Camp Trek package 2022 has a steady increase in elevation every day. It offers ample time for your body to adjust to the environment.
Altitude sickness is also known as acute mountain sickness (AMS). It usually happens during the high-altitude journey or if the body sees a sudden elevation change. You have to be aware and careful of it because in the worst case, you may have to return without completing the trek or air evacuate to a nearby hospital.
 
Symptoms of altitude sickness
  • dizziness
  • loss of appetite and insomnia
  • difficulty in breathing
  • nausea and vomiting
  • headache
Our trekking guides are very experienced, license holders, and have certificates for first-aid, rock climbing, etc. During the Annapurna Base Camp trek, our guide will keep in check the health condition of every trekker in the group.
The safety of our clients is the topmost priority for us. Therefore, we have a series of protocols we follow during the trek to monitor every step of the group on the trail. Be assured you will be guided by professionals.
 
Preventive measures of altitude sickness:
  • If you see early symptoms of altitude sickness, then drop down to lower elevation. Spend some time there to relieve the symptoms. Depending upon your situation, the team leader will decide whether you can trek further or not. You are requested to follow his orders as he is responsible for your and the group's safety.
  • Check our itinerary and make sure there is a constant increase in elevation during the trek. Ask the trekking agency if acclimatization days are needed or not, and join an ideal itinerary that will serve your body.
  • Do not drink alcoholic drinks or smoke during the trek. It will dehydrate your body and increase the risk of AMS. Keep yourself hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids and water.
  • Maintain a balanced diet. Fill yourself with the best possible meal option.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek Solo/Private/Group

You can do Annapurna Base Camp Trek solo, but we do not recommend trekking alone in the Himalayas even to experienced trekkers. What we can offer close to a solo trek is a private Annapurna Base Camp Trek. You can depart as per your time availability and make an itinerary as per your wish. You will trek with a professional guide and porter. They will introduce locals and villages to you, offer you great insight into the region, and help you mingle with the natives.
Similarly, you can also join one of our departure dates to ABC. Trekking in a group with people from all around the world offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You will get to know new people and possibly make travel buddies. Or, if you have your group, then trek with them, and we will give you full support during the trek.
Feel free to contact us anytime if you want to have a private trek or group trek with us.
 

Annapurna Base Camp Trek Best Time

There are two perfect seasons to go on Annapurna Base Camp Trekking, spring and autumn. Trekking in the off-season like winter and monsoon/summer only increases the difficulty level of the trek and involves furthermore risks like landslides and avalanches. Therefore, choosing the right time of the year to trek Annapurna Base Camp is crucial for a pleasant experience.
Trekkers usually prefer spring and autumn to trek in the Annapurna region. These two seasons offer a great view, stable weather, and moderate climate. You can see many fellow trekkers on the route too.

Spring and autumn is the season of mountain lovers. Hundreds of travelers explore the Himalayas in these seasons and a large number of trekkers visit Annapurna Base Camp. The temperature ranges from 10°C to 0°C. The daytime is warmer in comparison to night and morning.

The mild crisp wind and festive vibe of autumn make trekking soothing. Thanks to the gone monsoon season, the air is fresh and the region is vibrant and colorful.
 
Winter (November to February)
Annapurna Base Camp Trek in winter is strenuous but possible. Trekking in winter has its own perks. The views are probably the best. Heavy snowfall covers the mountains and the route. The trail has this winter fairytale kind of vibe. It's so beautiful.
However, beauty comes at a cost. You have to experience extreme col. The temperature drops below -10°C. And there are high chances of the trail getting blocked because of snowfall. You will need strong crew support and guidance. Not many people trek in the winter season, therefore you will have the entire nature to you.
