Trekking through the dense forest of rhododendron, pine, bamboo with the greater views of waterfalls is exciting. Hinku Cave of Deurali is next attraction of Annapurna trekking.

Whereas, the price of Annapurna base camp trekking could be cheaper if you joined our group trekking to Annapurna.

Best Seasons to trek ABC

Trekking in Nepal is a seasonal adventure. The same thing applies on Annapurna Base Camp; the best season to trek Annapurna is spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). Trekking around Annapurna in the months of monsoon (June to August) is possible. But, trekking Annapurna Base Camp in winter (December to February) is not much suitable. Specifically, in the months of mid-January to February is bit risky as the route consists of avalanche risks areas.

To trek Annapurna base camp needs; two different permits. The first permit needed for Annapurna trek is ACAP and the next permit is TIMS Card. The permits for Annapurna trekking can be issued either in Kathmandu or in Pokhara at Nepal Tourism Board Office.

Bhutan and Annapurna Base Camp trek - Incredible!

Three weeks with Trek Nepal Himalayas was an incredible experience. Our adventure included a day tour of Kathmandu, Everest flight with champagne at sunrise, flights to Bhutan with a few days touring around there. Our highlight in Bhutan was the climb to Tiger's Nest monastery and the amazing views from there.
Ten days trekking to Annapurna Base camp was wonderful. Our guide Badri made sure all our needs were met along the way. Nawin, our first in charge was very accommodating as well as the other 3 porters who lugged our stuff so we only had to carry a day pack.

Sunrise at Poon Hill was a must as well as putting up prayer flags at sunrise at the summit of our trip, Annapurna base camp. Just fab.

Inspirational, amazing and a humbling experience.

I would go back again and would make sure that these knowledgeable people were by my side for my next adventure.
