We have created 13 day Annapurna Base Camp trek with a perfect itinerary at a reasonable cost. This scenic hiking leads you through golden rice paddies, high-elevated scenery and lush rhododendron forest.

The ABC trail then swings east towards the Modi Khola where gushing water rush over boulder on their way to Indian plains. This route offers plenty time to acclimatize as it gains the altitude gradually. At Taglung, the trail veers north and climb up the valley through the mixed forest and lush farmlands. The villages on the route are charming and warmly hospitable.

The main activity begins at Macchapuchhare BC, which is followed by a challenging ascent to Annapurna BC (4,130m/13,550ft), amid the breathtaking Annapurna Sanctuary Amphitheater. At BC, a massive wall of rock and ice rising 4,000 meters (13,100 feet) will surround you, with a U-shaped glacial valley below.

And at the end of your trip, a flight back to Kathmandu will save your one more day.

14 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek is perfect for avid trekkers who wish to explore the major attractions that Annapurna Conservation Area. A complete trip is full of adventure, fun, and discovery!

Best Time for Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Best time to trek to the Annapurna Base Camp depends according to personal preferences and choices. But, one of the peak seasons for trekking to the Annapurna Base Camp is during the month of September, October, November, March, April, and May.

Autumn ( September, October, November)

The temperature of the Annapurna region during autumn may range between 13-17 degrees. During the day and night, the temperature is comparatively low. One of the best things about autumn is that you may not have to face the problem of rainfall while trekking. Autumn brings clear and dry weather which is the most favorable time of the year.

Spring ( March, April, May)

Spring is the second best time for trekking to the ABC after autumn. During Spring, the weather and temperature of the Annapurna region are warm and humid but not too hot for trekking. Spring is the time when new plants grow and flowers bloom. So, during this time, the surrounding becomes even more beautiful.

If you are trekking in Spring, be prepared for the May rainfall too. Carry appropriate trekking gears when you leave for trekking. Make sure you check the weather forecast before starting your journey.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek Difficulty

The Annapurna Base Camp sits at an altitude of 4130 meters while you have to cover a distance of 115 kilometers. To cover the distance, you may have to walk for about 6-7 hours a day. The Annapurna hiking trail is easy for those who used to walk regularly. You might get altitude sickness if you are fresher in trekking and hiking.

ABC Trek weather and temperature

The weather and temperature of the Annapurna region also determine the difficulty level of the trek. It might turn quite challenging during winter and monsoon. During winter the paths may be covered with snow. Similarly, during monsoon, rainfall may make your trek uncomfortable since the paths get muddy and slippery.

Accommodation in ABC Trek

Finding accommodation in the ABC trek during peak season is hard in some places. However, we can arrange accommodation for any season.  You must be aware of the fundamental facilities accessible in that location, such as pricing, sanitation, teahouses, camp lodging, and specific route. The route to Annapurna Base Camp is well-worn. There you find several tiny villages appear along the trail where you encounter bazillion teahouses and have lunch breaks. get more details here ow is the Accommodation in ABC Trek
