The mystic mountains, stunning landscapes, and extraordinary combination of natural and cultural heritages make this trek to the lap of one of the world’s tallest mountains, Annapurna Base Camp trek (8091 m), a lifelong memory. Annapurna Base Camp Trek is the most popular trekking destination among the local and foreign trekkers that come to Nepal.
The trekkers can take the common route to Annapurna Base Camp or the alternative route, such as Annapurna Sanctuary, to extend the trip. The breathtaking views of mountains, including Annapurna and Machchapuchhre (Fish Tail peak), the beautiful natural vegetation, and cultural diversity make Annapurna Base Camp trek a remarkable journey to be cherished throughout life. This trek is of moderate difficulty as the trekkers need to walk for 6-7 hours per day along the normal trekking trails.
However, ascending to the base camp is a bit physically demanding. Therefore, the trekkers should be aware and alert regarding their fitness and health. September, October, and November during the Autumn, and March, April, and May during the Spring are the best months for this trek. The rainy season is not usually preferred because of unfavorable sightseeing and mountain trail conditions. But still, some days during the summer (mostly June) are also favorable times to explore the beauty of ABC.
