It is recommended to fly to Pokhara if you are looking for a comfortable way of traveling. It’s about 20-25 minutes of flight.
We will take an approximately 1-hour drive to Nayapul; the trek starting and ending point of this trail. It will be a scenic drive with beautiful views of Annapurna and Lamjung Himalayan ranges. The road passes through green hills, rice paddies, thundering Seti river, and numerous small settlements.
Although we almost ascend for the whole day, the trail is fairly easy. We will cross various small villages like Matathanti, Ramghai, Sudame, and Hille before we reach Tikhedhunga. We will have a free evening to rest and relax.
We cross Bhurundi Khola (stream) and then start ascending steep climbing to reach the top of Ulleri village. Then we will follow gentle ascending through beautiful Rhododendron and Oak forests. We will stop in the Nangethanti for lunch which is situated in the middle of the forests.
One of the main attractions of our trek; Ghorepani is a beautiful village with panoramic views of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Himalayan ranges. Ghorepani will serve us with stunning views of Himalayas are served.
We will visit Poon Hill before sunrise for 360 panoramic views of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Himalayan ranges. The golden rays over the Himalayas looks fascinating. Poon Hill is a stunning viewpoint where more than 400 trekkers visit every day during the main season. From here we will be enjoying close views of numerous peaks including Dhaulagiri I, II, III, IV, V, Dhampus Peak, Nilgiri, Barahsikhar, Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Fishtail, etc.
Upon returning to Ghorepani village, we will catch a warm breakfast and then start heading towards Tadapani. It’s going to be a beautiful day with immense views of the Annapurnas and Dhaulagiri mountains throughout the walk.
We will enjoy our breakfast in the hotel with close views of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli and Fishtail before we start our journey to Chhomrong. The trekking trail descends down until we cross Kimrong Khola. We will cross that small stream continue through the gentle flat trail. Chhomrong is known as the gateway to Annapurna Base Camp. It’s one of the large Gurung [often referred to as Gurkha] village with majestic views of Annapurna South and Hiunchuli.
Enjoy the morning views of majestic Himalayan peaks before we start our walk. The trail from Chhomrong village starts with a steep decline to Chhomrong Khola followed by a steep climbing until we reach Sinuwa village. Then, we will be following a gentle trail to the top of Dovan and start descending for about an hour. It’s going to be a day with lots of ups and downs.
The trail from Dovan to Deurali is short and beautiful through the beautiful bamboo and rhododendron forests. The higher we go, the more beautiful majestic peaks will welcome us. We will climb to the Himalayan hotel for our lunch and continue another couple of hours to reach Deurali for overnight. The trail leads us between the beautiful Annapurna South in a side and Fishtail peak on the other side.
We pass through beautiful high alpine forests along with beautiful Himalayan views of snowy peaks. The walk through several spots known for avalanches is not less adventurous and challenging. Usually, there is an alternative route next to Deurali during monsoon season to protect travelers for potential avalanche risks. We will first reach Machhapuchhre Base Camp (MBC) for a quick lunch and continue a couple of hours to Annapurna Base Camp for the overnight stop. Annapurna Base Camp is surrounded by snow-capped white peaks.
From Bamboo we will start the walk after short climbing before we reach Khuldi Ghar. From Khuldi Ghar the trail slowly drops down to Sinuwa. From Sinuwa the trail again goes down until we cross Chhomrong Khola from where another uphill walk to Chhomrong village starts. From Chhomrong village we will have to do a sharp descend down to Jhinu.
Jhinu Danda is popular for its natural hot springs. If time permits and if interested we can make a visit to hot springs and enjoy natural hot water bath.
The trail from Jhinu to Siwai is mostly flat. From Siwai, we will take public transport to Nayapul and take private transport to Pokhara. This is one of the easy days among the whole trek. Enjoy beautiful views of rice paddies and green hills on the side. Spend the evening in Lakeside and celebrate the end of the trek.
We will follow the same highway through beautiful rivers, hills and small Nepalese settlements. The drive will take about 8 hours to drop us in Kathmandu. Form the tourist bus park you will be transferred to the hotel. In the evening you can explore the town probably buying souvenirs for friends and family members.
Meals and Accommodation: Annapurna Base Camp Trek is a complete tea house-based route hence we will be sleeping and eating in the lodges. Regarding the cities like Kathmandu and Pokhara, we provide 3-star category hotel accommodation with only breakfast. The lodges on the trek will be mostly shared bathroom / shared toilet while in 1/2 places we may provide you rooms with private toilet (depending on availability).
The meals on the trek will be mostly locally prepared using local ingredients most of the time however Kathmandu and Pokhara offer a wide selection of meals in basic to high standard luxury lounges. On the trek, the number of meal items will be limited to a small number and the tastes might not be similar to the actual item; pizza may not taste like pizza.
Best Season for the Trek: Spring and autumn are considered better for Annapurna Sanctuary Trek / Annapurna Base Camp Trekking. The best time to trek is usually during the dry season, from September to early December and early March to early June. In the winter and spring, there is a chance of snow on some of the high-altitude passes, while rainfall can make parts of the trail impassable in monsoon even though the trek can be done in the monsoon / rainy season. Autumn ensures a clear and dry high-mountain pass with a good chance of a clear view of towering Himalayan peaks.
The best months for ABC Trek are March, April, May, early June, September, October, November, and December. The Spring Season begins in March and runs until May, while the Fall season runs from September through November. The main reason for having a narrow window is that the mountains on each side of the valley will be filled with snow and ice and can prove treacherous for trekkers. The trek is doable throughout the year (in fact it’s popular all over the year) however during monsoon season, there are risks of avalanches between Himalaya Hotel and Deurali
This trekking route is one of the most popular treks in the world and many people flock to do it each year.

I had a fantastic time all through the trek. It was extremely awesome view, great food and stay. I felt safe traveling alone through himalayan leisure. All credits go to Upendra for planning the trip. He responds quickly and promptly. Highly treatable and took care of everything. I didn’t have to worry or think about anything. Krishna was my guide and porter. Awesome friend, highly recommend him as a guide. I added Chitwan and Kathmandu tour. It was the best trip to chitwan. I did tower night, jungle walk, private safari, elephant ride. Every day was exciting and joyous. Krishna was a good guide with sharp eyes. If you wanna do bird watching and spot wildlife, highly recommend him. I saw so many rare birds. Got a lady guide Sushma for Kathmandu tour. Another extraordinary day. She added a trip to Kalabairav for me. Highly recommend her. She is calm, understanding, knowledgeable and great photographer. Very imp guide is a good photographer for solo trips. I had Krishna and Sushma help me all along the way. They are guides who turned to be great friends. We had an amazing time all along. I am so happy and proud. Love nepal! Definitely will be back soon.
The views high up are worth every step . It’s hard work but, you are trekking in the Himalaya’s so, you expect that. What is interesting is that, every day, when you get to the day’s destination, you forget that it was hard work during the trek and wonder at the scenery before you. Totally Recommended
We had a wonderful experience trekking to Annapurna base camp. To be able to hike next to these mountainous giants was breathtaking and an experience I will never forget. We had the pleasure to be accompanied by Purna, who was our excellent guide. His pace was perfect for this trek, in the evening we had lots of fun talking or playing cards, and he was concerned with our well-being at all times! In conclusion, we had the most amazing time at ABC and if we come back we will definitely ask for Purna to be our guide again!
Our guide Dawa and our porter Ameesh were fantastic! The trek was physically challenging and visually breathtaking! Would totally trek with this company again!
