Annapurna Base Camp Trek Overview
The Annapurna Base Camp trek combines the incredible views from popular vantage point Poon Hill, with a moderate trek right into the heart of the Himalaya. When you stand in Annapurna Base Camp you’re literally surrounded by high mountain peaks. It’s the most amazing feeling, whatever the time of year! We spend the evening here and wake up early to watch the sunrise over the Annapurna giants. Get ready to create a memory you’ll never forget!
Travelling to Pokhara
We’ll be waiting to pick you up when you arrive at Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport. You can choose to travel straight to Pokhara or spend some time relaxing and exploring Kathmandu before you trek.
Pokhara, the gateway to the Annapurna Base Camp trek and the second largest city in Nepal, is often known as the adventure capital. Phewa Tal (Fewa Lake) is the city’s key feature. On a still day, you can gaze at the beautiful mirror images of the Annapurna’s reflected in the water. Pokhara is the perfect place to relax and have fun! Ask us about including one of the many adventure activities including paragliding and white water rafting in your itinerary!
Trekking to Ghorepani Poon Hill
The incredible mountain views are just one of the rewards on offer when you trek to Ghorepani Poon Hill. It’s possible to bypass Poon Hill and trek straight to Annapurna Base Camp if you’re short of time. But you’ll miss out on one of the best vantage points in the Himalaya. On the trek you’ll get a taste of the ‘real’ Nepal as you slowly ascend through rural countryside. You’ll see emerald green rice fields, lush forests rich with flora and fauna, and villages where the smiles of the Nepali people are infectious! If you’re trekking in March or early April, prepare to be amazed! You’ll see large forests of bright, colourful Rhododendrons native to Nepal.
Soak Up the View
We hike up to Poon Hill from Ghorepani just in time to see the sunrise. The spectacular view includes the seventh highest mountain Dhaulagiri (8,167m/26,795ft) and the tenth highest mountain Annapurna I (8,091m/26,545ft).
From Poon Hill, we continue our trek and observe the mountains getting closer. Hike through beautiful forests, across swinging suspension bridges into a stunning mountain landscape. On this trek you get two base camps for the price of one! We also pass through Machapuchare (Fish Tail) Base Camp.
The Main Attraction – Annapurna Base Camp
After lunch at Machapuchare Base Camp we start our hike up to Annapurna Base Camp. Words can’t describe the panoramic view that awaits you. All your hard work will be well worth it as you feel the mountains literally rising up to greet you. We spend the night in this Himalayan wonderland (4,130m/13,550ft) and rise early to watch the sun turn the mountains golden.
On our return from Annapurna Base Camp it’s possible to loop back a different way and relax in the natural hot springs at Jhinu Danda. The hot springs are situated on the river bank and surrounded by lush forest. They’re a perfect reward at the end of your trek!
Back to Kathmandu
You can choose to fly or return to Kathmandu by bus. Kathmandu is home to seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites, so you’ll be sure to want to see some! Get more ideas about what to do in this Kathmandu Travel Guide.
Ask us about including a sightseeing tour in your itinerary and make sure you allow time to pick up souvenirs and gifts in the quirky maze of streets in Thamel!

I did the Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Nepalorama in July 2022. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Nepalorama for trekking. We had to go in the monsoon season and Nepalorama were very professional in warning us about the difficulties of trekking in monsoon season. In practice we were lucky and had very good weather (raining mainly at night and late afternoon, if at all). The great benefit of going in July is that the trails are largely empty of other trekkers and you will have the experience mainly to yourselves. All the arrangements (meeting at airport, flights to Pokhara etc) went like clockwork. And when we wanted to alter our schedule at the end of the trek, spending extra days in Kathmandu, this was organised with no fuss at all. Our guide on the trek, Krishna, was great fun to be with as well as being very attentive to our needs. He knows the trek intimately and was able to set the right pace for our fitness and encourage us up the steepest climbs. This all made the experience truly memorable – the views and scenery are amazing – and very enjoyable! Go and go with Nepalorama!
My friends and I (5 total) did the ABC + Poon Hill Trek in late April of 2022. Our plan got to be modified many times in term of number of trekkers, length of stay and date of travel. Thanks to Nepalorama Trekking, we ended up having a wonderful time during our entire stay in Nepal.
Anna, the coordinator, is very professional and accommodating. She is prompt in replying my emails and willing to arrange the trip that suits my needs most. We also had the privilege to have Krishna as our guide. Krishna and everyone in his team are friendly and very attentive.They took excellent care of us and always made sure we were on track and at our own pace. I can’t say enough good things about them. I really appreciate their hard work and dedication and highly recommend this company to anyone who would like to visit Nepal. We will definitely see you again on our next trip to EBC.
We are pack of 4. Two sons 20 and 15 years old. I AM 52. We have a wonderful trip to Ananpura base camp. Budhi is our guide. He is very cheerful, helpful and patient. He suggest us to buy crampons. At the first time we think it is not necessary but we still buy them. For the second day we have used it. It is slippery When snow turn into ice. He give us about daily walking plan. How long and how hard for trekking every day. He try doing everything that we ask for. We suggest that everyone who would like to trek in Nepal must have mountain guide. It is very necessary. We are very happy and satisfy with Budhi ,Krishna and also Anna. Eventhough this is a small company but its competency is very good.
We are a couple at 40s from Japan, who had never trekked anywhere outside of Japan, and had never trekked higher than 3000m or longer than 3 days before. However, trekking in Nepal had been my dream for years… so we finally decided to put it into action while we still can walk!
As almost beginner trekker and 1st timer to Nepal, we chose Nepalorama Trekking due to its excellent reviews on trip advisor. Indeed, our trip was not only as good as the reviews, this trip actually exceeds our expectations in so many ways… i must say that although we had travelled to quite some countries and booked quite some activities by different ways before, this is by far one of our MOST SATISFYING, MOST REWARDING trip!! It changed our world! And our coordinator ANNA and guide BIBEK GURUNG are both outstanding good!
Since our communication by emails several months before the trip, Anna had already promptly and patiently answered our every little questions… at the time we already felt that we had chosen the right company.
Our guide Bibek greeted us at our hotel since we arrived KTM. Since then he took the flight with us to Pokhara and take care everything for us. Between 2 of us, we asked for a guide & a porter to help us. Some may say it’s not necessary… but we had seen other exhausting trekkers, or trekkers with other guides missing the best slights, walking in the cold… again and again proved that we had made a correct decision.
Bibek is very informative, familiar with the places/weather and has good connections with local teahouses etc. He planned the routes smartly, always makes sures we gets the best/most spacious room in the teahouse, get to the teahouse no later than 3-4pm, so within 8 days to ABC, we were pretty much walking under the sun everyday despite it was end of Dec., and all the slights were just picture perfect! Bibek also tells us a lot about the lives of Nepaleses, mountain villagers, guides & porters… I’m very happy to not only see the places, but also feel the local people & lovely animals (buffalos, donkeys, horses, goats, chickens, dogs…) along the way. It was really eye-opening and amazing. Bibek always tries to satisfy our every wish, we are deeply touched by the warmth and friendly nature of nepalese people.
8-day ABC trek may sound tough, but i can tell you that with the right guide and porter, it is totally possible, even for beginners or older people. Without a doubt, we highly recommend Nepalorama Trekking and Bibek to anyone cares to challenge trekking in Nepal! You will not be disappointed!
We also would like to recommend anyone trekking ABC in Winter time to bring a pair of champ-ons and warm sleeping bag. Somewhere near the top could be quite icy.
My first time trekking alone in Nepal, I choose Nepalorama from positive comment by my friends and they are a really great team. From the first e-mail, Anna helps to manage and arrange my schedule, always kind and promptly support to meet customer requirement. My guide is Binod, he is Krishna nephew, may be young but experience in trekking route, he’s very nice, friendly, and helpful, and also a very positive guy, we have a really good time during our trek. Thank you so much for everything. Nepalorama will be my first choice for trekking Nepal.
My friends and I(total 6 ppl) from Thailand booked this agency 4 months in advance because we knew some positive Thai reviews about Mr.Krishna in Thai blog. (Many Thai ppl who came with this guy recommend him!) We went to ABC on 2019,May (10-day trip from Kathmandu to Kathmandu). Before we decided to choose this agency, my friend contacted him many times to ask everything we need to know. He and his partner answered it clearly every single questions. When we arrived at the airport we got warmly welcome by this guy, Mr.Krishna. Throughout the journey, we always got helpful and friendly team. (both Mr.Krishna and the porters) They allowed us to take time just we could do. They knew every single homestays and restaurants we went to, so we got very good and reasonable accommodation and services there. They got 20-year experience in this field so you can trek with confidence! I highly recommend this agency to everyone. If I will be in Nepal again in any other route of trekking, I would rather choose Nepalorama for sure.
We went for Annapurna base camp trekking with Krishna and his team in May. It’s our first long trekking in Nepal.
When we arrived in Nepal, he gave us a warm welcome and helped us a lot in preparation for the trip. While we were in trekking routes, He showed us how he loves his job. He knows a lot about the Mountain and also his knowledge about the traditional way of Nepali people. So we can learn many things from him. He also organized the accommodations as best as he can, so our trip was very nice. Besides, we had 3 porters on our trip and they are very friendly and helpful.
In conclusion, We had a wonderful trip with Krishna and his team and hope that we’ll have a chance to go trekking with them again.
We visited Annapurna Base Camp on mid of may 2019. ABC is one of the most gorgeous nature I’ve ever seen. I couldn’t Imagine if i can manage to get this great experience without help of Krishna and his porters team. They made our visit the most comfortable as we can get from there and always helpful on everything we might need.
I and my friends (a total of 6 people) decided to spend our last summer trekking to ABC in Nepal. And our decision is well worth it.
We choose Nepalorama Trekking (because this company is very popular in Thailand) We got Mr. Krishna to be our guide. We got a very warm welcome when we arrived at the airport which I really appreciated it. He took care of us every step from the beginning. He always walked behind us to see if everyone was ok. I always felt safe! He not only guided us the ways but also taught us about Nepal and the ways of livings. He is such an expert. And even most of the accommodations in ABC was destroyed by the storm recently, he could arrange a room for us in ABC. (Not much people knew that there was a room left)
The porters were very funny and kind.
Thank you so much, Mr. Krishna and the porters for taking care of us. I have a wonderful time in Nepal. This country is very beautiful. It wasn’t easy though but if you got a great team, everything is gonna be fine and safe. I’m looking forward to trek with u again.
Anyone who is interesting in Trekking in Nepal, I definitely recommend Nepalorama!
Thank you to our guide Krishna and all the porters and all my friends who encouraged me to finish Annapurna Base Camp. Climbing up to the mountain wasn’t easy but not too tough if you have a great team. Krishna took a very good care of us. He always observed how’s everybody going and offered helps. Our accommodations were all nice. Besides sightseeing, we also learned a lot of Nepali ways from him which very enjoyable as well. And Anyone who’d like to come visiting/trekking Nepal in any routes, I absolutely recommend Nepalorama trekking.
We were well looked after on our 12 day tour of Nepal and Annapurna Base Camp thanks to the team at Nepalorama. Our guide Ramesh took good care of us all the way from arrival at the airport till our return transfer, including meals and accommodation. Our porter Dave was also very positive, helpful and friendly (and well equipped for the journey unlike some other tour operator’s porters we noticed on the trek!!).
My only comment was that I would have liked to have learnt more from our guides about Nepal. We had to rely on our guidebook for most information about the places we visited and for recommendations on places to go during our free time.
My first time trekking in Nepal to Annapurna Base Camp on 20-30 Apr with my friends (7 of us) and my superb guild Krishna!
He was everything !! Knowledgeable, funny and kind. There were many difficult times during our trip but he still remained calm and patient with us also solved all the problems so well.
I would say he treated us like his own family. Me and my friends really had such a wonderful time with him and porters. Thank you so much Krishna !!!
Krishna is the best!! Really recommended!!!
Krishna and team took care of 7 of us friends and couples. During the trip we faced so many difficult situations where Krishna solved all the problems without complaints. This 10 days trip was really fun. However, Not all of us managed to finish it. Krishna made a new travel plan for those who chose to stay in Pokhara. Rest of us managed to climb ABC a day earlier than the plan. He also arranged an extra hike to ABC at sunrise as our last visit to the base camp was too cloudy to see anything. He noticed our limits in food choices and he tried his best to serve us according to our preference.
We felt true hospitality from him and his team. We are all leaving Nepal with new friendships and experiences. We are definitely coming back to Nepal again with Nepalorama.
This was the first time i ever went hiking in my life. I did not know what to expect. We went for Annapurna Base Camp, and i can honestly say i signed up for something way bigger than i could handle. We were lucky to have Krishna(the MD) as our guide. Him and his porters were like family. We had a big group and did have a fair share of problems to deal with. The Nepalorama team helped us every step of the way.
Their true problem solving attitude throughout the the trip helped us get to the top against all odds: weather, nature, people and our own fears!
I highly recommend Nepalorama and am already planning my next trip to Nepal. Thank you Krishna and the team. Felt like a home away from home.
More than i can say for ABC trekking, it’s fun, tired and unseen for our team. It’s will be one of the best memory. Sometimes we discourage and will remove our heart, but with the encouragement from our friends and staff, fight and move forward until complete with tear. Don’t believe me until you have tried.
This is my first time ever trekking not only in foreign country but also domestic. It was a very superb experience to trek to ABC as well as atmosphere along the way through.
It was quite worried about trekking agency at first place.Anyway, after met with staff member, guide and porter team. We are very happy with their services, caring and trekking knowledge. We feel like we are trekking with family member.
If you would like to have a good time trek, I am strongly recommend you to trek with Nepalorama. You won’t be sorry if you go with them.
Miss there and your team.
I went to ABC trekking route with Mr.Krishna. Our group had 3 persons. There were many situation during the journey (Weather, Sick, …) but our guide and his team always solve them. They plan to manage and fix any problem for us. So we got the greatest experience in our trip. We just focus only the thing that we love (take a photo, note, hiking, …)
I already planed to EBC Trip with them on 2020. We trust them. Now porters and Mr.Krishna are my friend, my bro.
Glad to join you and be friend with them.
At the time of initiating idea to do ABC, Anna of Nepalorama helped me a lot in developing the trekking plan through email correspondences. I needed to do a lot of homework for this trip as the average age of my group (of 6 people) is about 60 (with the youngest of 39 and the oldest of 66). Doing ABC trekking within 8 days may be easy for many people but surely not for my group due to the age. During the trek, we could not meet the speed expected by other trekkers. We missed the lodge for one night in lower Sinuwa and need to stay in Chomrong instead. So, we need to add more distance in the next day, resulting in total 13.5-hour climbing up 1,000 meters from Chomrong to Deurali. Our guide, Buddhi, helped us a lot to circumvent that difficulty although we need to climb up from Himalaya to Deurali in the dark night time from 6-8 pm. We can achieve this challenge because of his hands given to and his steps beside our oldest folk. Our journey was actually filled with great adventure, great experience and a lot of fond memories because of this Company and its team.
Warm welcome , good staff , best take care, precious experience, once in a life time , love every moment here^^ #trekking #ABC #nepaltrip2018 😋🇹🇭🗻🌎🇳🇵😍
We have got the wonderful experience so thank you for the excellent service ^^ good arrangement for through trip. The guide is so funny and friendly. So appreciated. See you then in next trip EBC!
I visited Nepal and went solo trekking at ABC from 6-19 May 2018.
I am very happy with the service. The local guide, Mr.Ram, one of the guide in this company, is very friendly and introduce/explain the history/stories of every places that we have been to me.
I recommend to everyone to come and visit ABC. It is once-in-a-lifetime experience that shouldn’t be missed!!
Whether you have Mr. Krishna, Mr. Ram, Mr. Ramesh or another Nepalorama guide, they are all excellent and friendly people!
I went to ABC with Krishna. He help me arranged everything and he answered every question of mine clearly. I think I’m lucky going with him. My guide Binod was very friendly also. He help everything in the mountain. He is very strong and his service was very good. If you want to visit Nepal this is very good choice!!
This is my first time trekking so I was a little bit nervous. I found Krishna’s company via a famous website (Pantip) written along with good reviews. Krishna had discussed with me about our plan there in Nepal so all the plan will depend on what you want to.(except something that relate to your safety, It need to be strict follow his advices). Our ABC trekking plan was originally plan to be 9-days long which we change to 8-days after we reach to the ABC. Ramesh is our guide and he is so sweet. His english is even better than mine. He is funny and very active. We’re somehow a little bit introvert so he leave some space for us to have a private rime which is great! Even when something doesn’t go as a plan, there always be a good solution provided by Ramesh as the day we expect to reach Deurali but we couldn’t make it in time, we still had a great room at Himalaya. Ramesh never push you to walk faster and he is a professional guide! Even when the time snow had fallen without warning, he can lead us to the destination without lost our way in the middle of nowhere. So I recommend you if you’re looking for one of the best local guide. Even the price seem a little bit higher than others but I’m happy to say that I would like to pay for a best service. It’s not like you travel with a guide but more like a friends. Next year we planning to go back again for EBC and Krishna also with Ramesh will be our first choice!
Trekking in Nepal is one of my dream trip. And I am so glad that I made a right decision to book a trip with Krishna. I have heard a lot about his great service from Thai website (Pantip). Once I was in Nepal, I experienced his customer service myself. He was always helpful, full of knowledge and being so supportive. I highly recommend this to everyone and you will never regret this.
I booked my trip to ABC with Krishna via Anna. Anna has been very helpful, gave me a lot of information and answer all my questions promptly. Trekking to ABC couldn’t be that easy without Krishna and his team. He’s very professional and also very friendly. It was amazing and unforgettable time. Definitely recommend Nepalorama for Nepal trip!
Just finish ABC 10 days trekking with my team and Krishna on 8Mar. At first our plan was 8 days up then arrived at ABC and 3 days down to Pokhara. But after day 3 Krishna suggest us to change the trek’s plan according to our walking speed, arriving at ABC 1 day earlier. Giving us more time to speed back and chilling on our way down, enjoying with the hot spring, just like cooling down after a hard workout.
Couldn’t recommend him more, a nice and always smiling guide who could make you trek a splendid one.
A good guide knows how to keep you on track and be at the lodge on time, a super guide knows to alter the plan and make your journey even better!
Even though I was not with Krishna himself he managed everything well, his team ‘NT’ took a good care for us, everything went really well even with some problem NT still found the best way for us along the way to ABC and back.
I booked ABC via Poon Hill trek with Krishna. He arranged everything for our group. We had been taken care of from our first day in Nepal till our departure. Krishna provided us with experienced guide. Our guide was the best, he could explain everything we asked. He is very helpful, positive and has good understanding about trekking in Nepal. Our 9-day trek was delightful. If you are looking for trekking company, then I would recommend Nepalorama.
Thank you so much for warm welcome and well management Krishna! I was really appreciated in you and all of your team member especially guides and porters.
I would like to say thank you to your guide “Anmol” who looked after us very very well along the trip. Anmol paid much attention to us in every day and every step of trekking. He was a best guide ever. He was good-humored, generosity, funny and positive thinking. We all were had a great time here. We hope to join the next trip with you!
LOVE ^.^ NEPALORAMA TREKKING ^__^
I booked the ABC with Mr. Krishna and he did very nice warm welcome for the whole trip! I’m planning to go more for the EBC next year with him again! Coolllll dude~
I did the ABC trek with a friend. It was my first time in Nepal and the Himalayas, but not the last for sure. Before the trip we exchanged a lot of letters to plan the trip. As first time Himalaya trekkers and low altitude dudes, we had a lot of questions and we got all the answers. Also we had some special requests which were all taken care of and addressed. So when starting the trek we were well prepared what we can expect and therefore we could dissolve in enjoying this lifetime experience.
If you are at any level into mountains, then Himalayas are a place you should not miss. But also, this is a place where nature rules, so you should prepare and go with someone you can rely on. I can only speak highly of the service we got and I am very happy I went with Krishna.
I had some issues with the high altitude, but not for a moment did I feel unsafe and eventually Krishna helped me get through it and reach the peak that we went for.
Five stars and looking for the next adventure!
We (2 Belgian guys 26 and 29) contacted Krishna on whatsapp and arranged the Annapurna base camp trek with him, he was very helpful and provided us with all the details. They arranged all the mountain passes and overnight stays, meals,… so we only had to walk and not care about anything else during the trek 🙂 Krishna himself could not go on the trek with us because he was on another trek during our visit so we went with his brother Ramesh.
He was a very cool guide singing along the mountain trails and making jokes, i got the feeling we got the best guide when seeing other ones ;-). His English was very good!
We had a porter that carried both our bags, he was from the same village as Ramesh and they got along perfectly, he could also speak sufficient english.
When arriving at a hostel they would always first make sure we were comfortable, always giving us food before eating themselves.
The trek itself was an epic experience i will never forget, we had the best time together and after 8 days together they really felt as friends to us 🙂
With Nepalorama you can customize your trek as you want, I would highly recommend this company to everybody!
