This is a best adventures trek to the Annapurna Base Camp the world’s tenth highest mountain and to viewpoint at Poon Hill 3,210m .We start by taking the spectacular flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara or by Tourist bus where you will get superb views of the Himalayan mountains. This is a Annapurna classic trek passing through Gurung villages and rhododendron forests followed by an ascent of Poon Hill where there is a superb view of the Himalayan peaks of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna 1, Hiunchuli, Annapurna South and Machapuchare (known as Fishtail mountain). From here we follow the Modi Khola river through the gates of the Sanctuary into a hidden amphitheatre with a superb view of the Annapurna massif.
This trek would be a good choice if you would like to get into the high Himalayan mountains without the longer acclimatisation period required for some of the other treks in Nepal such as Everest Base Camp, , Annapurna Circuit Or Langtang . The highest altitude reached on this trek is 4,130m at Annapurna Base Camp.
 
The Annapurna base camp trek (also known as Annapurna Sanctuary trek) can be completed in about 7-8 days, and although you must be physically fit, the difficulty is not that high. With good acclimatization, you can enjoy this wonderful route gracefully,

10 Tips For Doing ABC Trek (Annapurna Base Camp 2017 / 2018 )

 
1 )Ask to be a part of a group with your trekking agency even if you are planning to (or prefer to) go alone. Bookings in upper Annapurna sanctuary are not guaranteed if you are alone. They prefer to give rooms out to larger groups. Not much of written bookings are taken in most of the lodges – most are verbal commitments to your guide or trekking agency via phone saying they “will have” the room when you arrive – but in busy season the first ones to get there with larger group end up taking your spot. Being of part of a group dose not mean you have to be together with them during the day necessarily as long as you arrive at the same lodge at the same evening. Worst case – you may end up sharing a 6 to 8 person room. But if you still prefer to be on your own schedule – bring a light tent as a plan B if the lodges are full.
 
2 ) No need to panic about squat toilets – something I got asked frequently by western travelers. More than half of the lodges in all the ABC trek route have western toilets. If yours doesn’t happen to have one – hope on over to the one that has since most of the lodges are jumbled together within few hundred yards and most of the toilets are shared and are located outside. If you see the lodge lady act as if you belong there – if that fails slip 50 Rupees bill. Squatting on a tired knees of six days a trek is like getting a root canal.
 
3 ) Go easy on alcohol. Not much selection anyway. Best drink by far (for me) is following – order a hot ginger tea and a small bottle of Nepali dark rum (called “Khukuri Rum” – all the lodges carry it) add a few splash of it over tea and some sugar. Mild drink – will warm you up but doesn’t get you too drunk.
 
4 ) Even though most of the lodges have electricity charging the phone is a hit or miss due to lack of enough outlets and lack of enough power. Have a battery powered or solar powered chargers for your gadgets.
 
5 ) If you need to stay connected get a CDMA sim card (and a CDMA phone) at KTM. Pretty much works all the way to MBC/ABC now a days must hotel they have Wifi you can used By NCELL data to
 
6 ) Village with best view of mountains => Tadapani.
Best place to stop for tea or lunch =>Upper Sinuwa.
 
Village with best view of village itself => Chomrong.
 
Villages you would rather skip staying => Bamboo and Himalaya (because of no view and limited number of lodges).
 
7 ) Skip the Poon Hill trek (that everyone seem to do early in the morning) if you are continuing on to Tadapani (which most of you will if you are doing ABC). On your way to Tadapani you climb to similar elevation as Poon Hill and get similar view of the Annapurna range on the way.
 
8 ) If you forgot thermal packs – you can use your aluminum water can as thermal pack when you go to bed. Just go to the Kitchen with the can and ask for it to be filled with hot water.
 
9 ) “Dal/Bhat” Power Rules!!! As you will soon learn from seeing porters put away heaps of it front their plates – do it at least once.
 
10 ) Leave a day or two extra in your itinerary. Saw many folks trying to squeeze trek from Chomrong to New Bridge in one day because they have to catch the flight and be back to work on Monday somewhere. Not a pleasant way to end your vacation.
