Best travel time

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is best in the fall (September through November) and spring (March through May). During this time, the sky is clear, and the view is excellent. The weather is perfect for hiking without rain. Especially during the spring season, we can also enjoy lush vegetation in the lower regions of the trail.

Trekking gear

It is a short hike in the Annapurna region. You don't need individual gears. We recommend a sleeping bag, trekking boots, pants, socks, a warm jacket, T-shirts (two or three) and a long-sleeved shirt, sunscreen (SPF 20+), backpack, flashlight (flashlight), camera, memory card and battery charger (spare batteries), quick-dry towel, crampons if you do this hike in the spring.


It's easy or difficult. Annapurna Base Camp trek is considered to be one of the most reliable hikes in Nepal as the route of this hike is not that steep or difficult. Most of the time up to Annapurna Base Camp takes place below 3000m. However, the terrain is challenging with thousands of stairs. It can be a challenge as the path leads to the base camp of the 10th highest mountain in the world. It is therefore vital to prepare for the hike in advance if you are hiking in the high mountains for the first time.

A life time memorable experience in Annapurna Mountain

My friends and I used Nepal Tour & trekking service agency for our trek to Annapurna Base Camp. It was a great experience! Ganesh, the company manager, was responsive, planning professional, and fluent in English.

We enjoy every moment and we will always remember the special connection with the amazing culture, mountains and people in Nepal. The short trek to Annurpurna Base Camp remains a valuable memory and experience that should never be forgotten. The view is breathtaking and every drop of sweat is worth it.

Our guide was great with a great sense of humor and was extremely competent on site. He always tries to make sure we have enough to eat and drink and takes care of where we sleep. I can only recommend this company!
