Annapurna Base Camp Trek – 14 Days

Written By Bhagwat Simkhada

Highlights:

  • Breathtaking panoramic views of Machhapuchhre (6997m), Annapurna South (7219m), Hiunchuli (6441m) and more.
  • Relish the unique culture and hospitality of the Gurung people.
  • Sublime views from villages like Ghorepani and Ghandruk.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is one of the most famous treks in Nepal. This route is flocked by trekkers of all age groups. The breathtaking Annapurna range has been a favourite for many trekkers throughout the years. Along with the Annapurna range, diverse flora and fauna along with charming Gurung culture are the main attractions of this trek.

The 14-day trip starts at Pokhara and from there you drive to Nayapul to enter the Annapurna region. Pokhara is the lowest point on the trek at 870 meters and the highest point is the Annapurna Base Camp at 4,170 meters. Also, you will also need a permit to trek inside the Annapurna Conservation Area. Gurung community heavily dominates this region, so you can see their influence throughout the trek.

On average, you need to walk for 6 hours a day. The terrain is gentle during the first half and gets strenuous slowly. You visit rustic villages like Ghorepani, Tadapani, and Chhomrong and Machhapuchhre Base Camp (MBC) on the elevation of 4,000m before ascending to the ABC. From the base camp, you can see amazing views of Machhapuchhre (6997m), Hiunchuli (6441m), and Annapurna (8091m), and many more. After exploring the base camp, you descend to Jhinu Danda. Here, you can relax at the natural hot spring.

You don’t need technical skills to conquer this trek. Also, trekkers need not worry about Altitude Sickness. However, do carry medicines to tackle altitude sickness if it’s your first time climbing to high altitudes. There are many options like Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek and Mardi Himal Trek if you want to experience more of this region. Likewise, the best times for this trek are the spring and autumn seasons.
