Total Distance for Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Annapurna Base Camp Trekroute covers around 115 km and you will be walking 09 to 20 km each day. This trail is a popular one and is usually packed with trekkers from all over the world. Specially this year many Asian trekkers doing trekking in this route 

As comparison with The trekking trails this Annapurna Base Camp Trekare easier on this trek. However, the rocky terrains in the mountains is a bit difficult than normal hilly trails. The moraine trails are rocky and sometimes steep.

During winter, all the paths will be covered by snow and it will be quite challenging. But the trekking trail is popular and busy in most season.

Type of Trekker

For an experienced trekker, this trekking trail will not be too difficult. It is a comfortable trek for anyone who is used to walking on rough terrains for 4/6 hours on high altitude areas.

For a first-time trekker, this trek will be a completely different experience. It will take you more time than the average trekker to cover the distance. As mentioned above, to avoid having difficulty, it is recommended for you to take up the habit of walking uphill for a few hours every day a month or two prior to your actual trek.

If you are a novice trekker, it will be difficult for you to walk in the rocky and steep trails. It would be wiser if you hire a porter to enjoy a more comfortable walk. Walking up the hills and mountain regions with heavy loads where the oxygen is thinner than the lower altitude areas is not a good idea.

So, to have a more comfortable and enjoyable 115 km distance of the trekking trail, hire a porter and an experienced guide from a trusted trekking company Like Actual Adventure

If you have some extra days you can visit Ghorepani poonhill with Annapurna Base camp Trek 14 days as well

Stay Safe

  • Altitude Sickness: The main and common risk while trekking above about 2500m is Altitude sickness. Altitude sickness is caused by acute exposure to low partial pressure of oxygen at high altitude. The available amount of oxygen to sustain mental and physical alertness decreases with altitude. Available oxygen drops as the air density itself, the number of molecules (of both oxygen and nitrogen) per given volume, drops as altitude increases. So don’t ignore, if you have any symptoms then descending to a lower altitude is the only option.
  • Water: Have some means to purify water, iodine or a fine ceramic filter are the best options. The streams should be considered polluted and whilst bottled water is often available, the disposal of plastic bottles is a problem.

Electricity in Nepal

Nepal is a developing country, Outside of major cities area electricity on trekking can be scares. You should have to pay 100-800 NRs per hour to charge goods on many lodges and also many tea-house treks, including in Annapurna base camp trek, Everest Base camp trek and many others treks also. Chargers often won't work on low power solar systems you find right up in the mountains so u can buy alternative bayonet light to electricity power plug converter, which will only works in low voltage is highlow. The standard Nepalese electrical outlet is a three-pronged triangle so bring three-pronged triangle chargers.

Nepal Climate information

Команда обеспечила отличную организацию и безопасность. Трек проходил в самом сердце Гималаев, весной это великолепное зрелище- леса цветущих родондродонов, это незабываемо! Большая благодарность нашему гиду Lakpa Sherpa. Очень внимательный, деликатный и веселый человек, на месте показал все вершины региона Аннапурна. Размещение в лоджах было удобным , все вопросы решались быстро и без проблем. Непал прекрасная страна для туризма. Местные жители очень доброжелательны и дарили улыбки каждому.

We overall had an amazing trip to the Annapurna Base Camp. We saw both monkeys along the way, and some many beautiful views and mountains. Along the way we had some complications, both with the guide and the route.. 
But in the end we got it all figured out, and we ended out being glad we went along with the company.
