The Annapurna Base Camp trek is a different experience if compared to the Everest B. C. with the Annapurna Base camp, we go a little above 4000m while the latter takes us beyond 5000m with greater risks but the EBC has its attractions and does not dissuade trekkers from hiking its trails, despite the altitude and the risk involved; however, the ABC offers better ecosystems and chocolate box scenery that attracts nature lovers in their hordes. The altitude levels are also just right, especially for trekkers uncomfortable with higher altitudes seeking more bird sanctuaries found in the rich forests of the Annapurna region with the addition of typical mountain villages brimming with life in its ethnic communities of the Gurungs, Magars and Thakalis whose warm friendly nature stops us for a while to strike up interesting conversations which give us deep insights into their rich culture and amazing traditions

Doing the Annapurna Base Camp trek is a venture in a league of its own; you come face-to-face with some of the biggest peaks on the planet, they are:  Mt Annapurna I, Annapurna III (7555m), Gangapurna (7454m) and Machhapuchare (6999m), Lamjung himal (6986m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Nilgiri (7041m), and there are many more peaks that surround this wonderful route. The Annapurna I is the tenth highest peak in the world. This secluded chain of peaks is only accessible through one path, a bottomless cutout gorge that slits into the bastion of mountains between the sacred Machhapuchre and Hiunchuli peaks. Our journey commences from the trek point of Nayapul in the lake city of Pokhara where the well cut out trails take us past colorful villages and fertile cultivated farmlands by the banks of the Modi Khola as we begin hear and see the natural waterfalls and charming rhododendron forests rich in flora and fauna which this zone is truly famous for.

This trek is a wonderful outdoor occurrence that blends with the splendid beauty of nature, and symbolic mountain cultural warmth that makes this odyssey the ideal wilderness experience you’d never ever want to forget for some time to come.This is a trek that warms the heart for some time to come at ‘Mountain Sherpa Trekking’, our adventure trips are Planned with precision to give you the wilderness in Nepal like no one else.

Itinerary

If it’s a clear day when you are flying into Kathmandu, then your tour begins right from the skies itself. The sights from the windows of our jet shows us glimmering snow-capped mountain peaks spread out down below us, giving us the first thrills of our just begun vacation, sparking off a whole reaction of unforgettable experiences that stay with us for some time to come. As soon as your plane hits the tarmac of Tribhuwan International Airport, Mountain Sherpa Trekking office representative and driver will be on standby to meet and greet you at the airport and escort you to your hotel. The rep will help you check into your designated hotel, and after going to our rooms and refreshing ourselves we will be briefed about our daily activities. The rest of your time is free to move around the neighborhood and get familiar with your surroundings. In the evening we will meet our senior trek guide who will brief the group about details related to our trek. Your first overnight in the ancient city of temples, probably the most in the world. Breakfast

After a good night’s sleep and enjoying a hearty b/fast, we proceed for our tour of Basantapur Durbar Square. Recorded by UNESCO as a cultural World Heritage site, Kathmandu Durbar Square is a bunch of medieval temples, palaces, courtyards and streets that date back to the 12th and 18th centuries. within this square we will find Hanumandhoka Palace Museum, Taleju Temple, Kumari Ghar (House of the Living Goddess), Kasthamandap and other temples and buildings as old as the city itself; from here we head for a tour of the famous Boudhanath Stupa {said to be the largest in the world) and a major centre of Tibetan culture in Kathmandu. The stupa is designed to be like a giant mandala (a representation of the Buddhist cosmos).

We next drive down to Swayambhunath {popularly known as Monkey Temple} “Swayambhu” means “self-created” and refers to the myth that the hill sprung up suddenly from a great lake that once covered Kathmandu Valley. Our next destination is Pashupatinath Temple. This temple is dedicated to Hindu deity Lord Shiva and is said to be the most holy Hindu shrine in Nepal. Hereabouts we see a cremation ritual of Hindus at ‘Aryaghat’, the cremation area of the temple. This cremation site is used for the once royal family of Nepal and also for the simple Nepalese people who live within the country.

We then wrap up our Heritage tour with a trip to Patan which is one of the three medieval cities in Kathmandu and a destination for connoisseurs of great arts. We take a tour of the Patan Durbar Square - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located in the square is the Patan Museum (originally a Malla palace), Krishna Mandir- a stone temple of Lord Krishna with its 21 spires and art that  displays scenes from the Mahabharata and Ramayana epics, this includes the Royal Bath or 'Tushahity' and the nearby Hindu and Buddhist temples. We return back to our hotel, refresh, and head down to the airport for our short flight to the city of lakes - Pokhara. Breakfast

After having breakfast at Hotel, it's a short ride to Kande, the initial point of the trek. It is a small village beside the highway, which has a respectable population and rudimentary facilities. From Khande an hour's ascent brings you to the summit of the ridge (with great views ahead), then trek gently via the 'Australian Camp' to join the Dhampus route at Pothana. There are several perfectly adequate lodges at Pothana. The ones further up the street have superb views towards the Annapurnas.We spend our first night in Pothana. Dinner and overnight at the local lodge (Teahouse)

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

From Deurali we descend steeply down through forest then contour around through villages and terraced fields to camp in the picturesque Gurung settlement of Landruk, which affords spectacular views of Annapurna South and Hiunchuli. After lunch at Landruk, We descend all the way down to the river, to cross at New Bridge. Our route now climbs quite steeply, high above the river, through bamboo forest and isolated farmsteads. Finally we reach the Jhinu Danda our overnight place for tonight. Those who are energetic can take the path 20 mins down to bath in the hot springs here next to the river.Dinner and overnight at the local lodge (Teahouse)

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

From Jhinu Danda it's a hot climb to reach the crest of the ridge and then around to Chhomrong village. Chhomrong is built on the steep hillside and has a few shops and several tea-houses, wooden lodges and the whole village has stunning, prominent views towards Macchappuchare (Fish-Tail Peak).

After short teak break, we leave Chhomrong along the Modi Khola leaving behind inhabited foothills into the high step and wooded slopes of Himalayas. We cross the suspension bridge then trek up to Sinuwa Danda. The ascent from Sinuwa becomes somewhat flatter. The trail passes through thick and dark rhododendron forest up to Khuldighar. Then, we descend a long and steep stone steps into deep bamboo and rhododendron forests through which we reach Bamboo for overnight stay.Dinner and overnight at the local lodge (Teahouse)

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

We hike by bamboo forest which is damp and chilly and then ascend steadily with fewer steep sections. It is only after reaching Himalaya Hotel that the forest opens up and we are out in the sun again with astounding views of the glacial river below. It is a steep climb up through a much drier forest before reaching Hinku Cave. From here we can see the trail drop closer to the river before climbing again to Deurali, the most charming stretch of the day. The vegetation is sparser, allowing delightful views of the valley, the river below, and the sheer rock face cliffs above with bands of flimsy waterfalls. Overnight at a lodge in Deurali.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

As we hike the Annapurna circuit trail for 2 hours, we descend a small ridge branching out from the mountain pass to mountainside with widespread green terraced fields displaying serene meadows and lush abundant farming land. As we reach Annapurna South Base Camp, we begin to eyewitness awe-inspiring pictorial landscapes, grandiose panoramic views of snow-capped mountainous peaks and varied Himalayan cultural settings tucked beneath the southern slopes of the Annapurna massif. This dazzling display of sweet nature is something we’ll never forget. After this wonderful experience, we head down to our lodge.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

Get up in the early morning and savor the magnificent sunrise over the Himalayas from ABC. After taking breakfast, we start descending from ABC to Bamboo back through MBC, Deurali and finally reach Dovan. Heading back down to the valley is much easier than climbing up. You will see the waterfalls that drop down from a high point to the rocks below. We pass through the forests with great views of Fishtail and Hiunchuli mountains. Overnight in Dovan. Dinner and overnight at  lodge (Teahouse)

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

From Dovan, we hike along the mountain path of stone steps, pass through a pretty hamlet, cross a suspension bridge and then we walk through dense forest of bamboo. Finding ourselves in complete isolation amidst the serenity of nature can be quite an experience. Our trek does not stop here. After trekking for a while, we approach teahouses at Sinuwa where we can relax and enjoy a drink or snacks. We then resume our trek to the north, descending Daaulu and after having walked for five hours, we soon find ourselves at Chhomrong. From Chhomrong we can get gripping views of Machhapuchare. There are many chalet-style wooden lodges at Chhomrong. From Chhomrong, we take different route to ghandruk vilage.Overnight in Ghankdruk village.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

We first descend further along the trail showcasing rich rhododendron forests, splendidly cascading sparkling mountain streams and other magical vistas of nature that surprise us. After continuously climbing for 3 hours, we step on the territory of Tadapani at an altitude of 2590m. Tadapani offers the most awesome mountain views of the overpowering peaks of Annapurna South. We then crash out for the night at our lodge.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

After b/fast, we hang around for some time before our flight, and in this spare time we can do some shopping. We then get into our vehicle and head down to the airport for our flight to Kathmandu. On touching Kathmandu, our day is free to do our own things. For suggestions, you can do some valley shopping, or enjoy tour around Bhaktapur city, or relax at hotel, there are a whole lot of other activities if you feel like it. In the evening we will have a farewell dinner in a traditional Nepalese restaurant with a cultural performance by the local belles. (Your guide(s) and an office staff will accompany you.)

Vital information

******* Climate and Seasonality *******

Nepal is subject to monsoon which determines the choice of trekking areas depending on the season: Spring, from March to May is ideal to watch the explosion of vegetation,including rhododendrons.trek around the Annapurna to Everest & langtang would be the best choice. In Spring Season,Generally clear skies in the morning & marked cloudiness in the late afternoon.The more we advance towards the month of May (monsoon), the more clouds rise early.

Mid September to November: This is the main trekking season in Nepal. Day temperatures in Kathmandu are approx. above 20degC. Skies are usually clear and days on trek are sunny and mild with clear mountain views. Nights will be colder with temperatures dropping as low as to -5degC at the higher altitudes.

Summer Season Starts from June to September. The regions of Lower dolpo Trekking and Mustang trekking of Nepal, and nepal and tibet tour & treks can be done in the monsoon.

Winter, from Mid December to late February, the cold is dry, the clear sky, the sunshine ... Many benefits without the tourist season. For example, short trek like chisopani and nagrkot trek, ghorepani poonhill trekking, Ghandruk Village trek would ideal for Winter Treks. 

Travel Insurance:

It is a condition of joining any of our holidays that you are insured against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs, air ambulance and helicopter rescue services). We also strongly recommend that you take out delayed departure and cancellation insurance, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions.

We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance, please ensure that your insurer is aware of your MSTE itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken in the trip to Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan & India. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet, Bhutan & India trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage.You need send us your copy of your insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip.

“Annapurna Base Camp - Incredible!”

“Annapurna Base Camp - Incredible!”


I did the Annapurna Base Camp trek with Mountain Sherpa Trekking in October 2016. I couldn't recommend the company more! We had a fantastic time. I had signed up for a group trek as a single person, and the two other people who had signed up for the same dates cancelled shortly before. So, Mountain Sherpa Trekking organized a private trek for me and did not charge anything extra. My Guide (Chandra) and Sherpa (Dawa) were fantastic!! They were both very helpful and always went the extra mile. This was my first time doing a long trek of this sorts, and I can't wait to get back to Nepal to explore more. We ended up getting up to ABC almost a day ahead of schedule, and added onto our route on the way back down to Pokhara to fill out the last day, which was really nice! If anybody has any questions about Mountain Sherpa Trekking or the ABC trek itself, I would be happy to answer them! I would definitely recommending using MST. Their communication before the trek was great - they responded to my emails right away, and I had a lot of them! You won't go wrong with Mountain Sherpa Trekking - they are very organised, professional, and great to interact with!

Wonderful Annapurna base camp trek

I am writing to thank you for professional organization of our trekking to ABC (Annapurna base camp Trek). We did not have any problems on the road, everything was perfect (accommodation in teahouses, food, transport). Most of all we would like to express our gratefulness to the people who climbed with us. Mr Kitemba Sherpa and Mr Porter (Iam shame but I do not remember his name).

They are absolutely professionalism! Mr Kitemba has high qualifications, wide experience, we felt with him safe even during bad weather conditions. Mr Porter is so helpful, honest and positive person, always with smile on his face (despite he had the heaviest rucksack to carry).
Thanks to them our trekking was a real pleasure. We are under great impression of your country and beauty of the mountains. We will recommend your company to each of our friends who intend to visit Nepal.
We wish you all the best!!

Pasta, tuna bakes, noodles, potatoes, eggs, daal bhat(rice and lentils), bread, soup, fresh vegetables (variety depends on the season) and even some desserts like apple pies, pancakes, and some interesting attempts at custard. You will find a lot of garlic on the menu because it assists with acclimatization – eat some every day. In many larger villages you may find some meat items on the menu.
