Itinerary Print 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 show 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 center 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 the Hindu deity Lord Shiva and is said to be the holiest 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 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 bathe 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 the short teak break, we leave Chhomrong along the Modi Khola leaving behind inhabited foothills into the high step and wooded slopes of the 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 an 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 the 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 a 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 a tour around Bhaktapur city, or relax at the 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 office staff will accompany you.)

“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!

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!!

FAQs

Annapurna base camp trek is recommended for average people who are reasonably fit. This trek is less demanding than other treks in Nepal, thus no prior experience is required. However, we suggest you do some physical fitness programs such as running, swimming, hiking before embarking on your journey.

Because of ascents and descents walking, the Annapurna Base Camp trek is not appropriate for anyone with knee problems or weak ankles. Anyone with heart trouble or lung problems should check with their doctor.

We use standard rooms at quality hotels in Kathmandu and Pokhara with breakfast included. Along the trekking routes, teahouses/lodges generally provide basic clean facilities with a mattress and a quilt or blanket. We can also offer you sleeping bags if needed (to be returned after the trip) but it is a good idea to always have your own sleeping gear. The lodges in trekking routes generally provide single and double rooms, or seldom a dormitory. At times when possible, dining will be around a bonfire. In tea houses, food will be prepared in the kitchen which you should not enter without permission. The toilet in tea houses provides essential and basic facilities and will be always outside the room.

Most teahouses (lodges) in Annapurna Base Camp trails cook a delicious range of mostly vegetarian fare. 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. You can always get hot chocolate, tea, and hot lemon drinks, as well as soft drinks, and treats like chocolate and crisps. Each day dinner and breakfast will be at a lodge you'll stay at while lunch will be taken on the way to your destination.
