Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Kathmandu, Nepal
5.0 (5 reviews)

Trip Highlights

  • World Famous Trek
  • Incredible Elevation Change
  • Dramatic Mountains & Views
  • Giant Rivers, Waterfalls & Valleys
  • Fantastic, Local Cuisine
  • Relatively Moderate Hiking
  • Temples, Monasteries & Villages


Annapurna Base Camp (ABC), also called the Annapurna Sanctuary, is one of the most beautiful treks in the world. The trek itself provides generally moderate hiking (for the Himalayas), stunning scenery and a mix of cultures unmatched by any other trek in Nepal. The predominant caste in this area are the Gurung people. Additionally, the Magar and Chetrie people live in the same area and are historically famous for serving as soldiers in the British Army (Ghorkas). The cultural highlights of the ABC trek combined with the amazing views of Mount Machapuchare (22,943ft/6,993m), Mount Dhulagiri (26,794ft/8,167m) and Mount Annapurna South (26,545ft/8,091m) create a full, unforgettable Himalayan trekking experience.

The trek to Annapurna follows a well-trodden path through small villages, terraced farmlands and spectacular forests on its way up to the glaciated alpine zones at the higher elevations. We eventually make our way to Machapuchare Base Camp where we will stay before ascending to the alpine mountain sanctuary of the Annapurna Base Camp (13,550ft/4,130m) for sunrise. Come see why our Annapurna Base Camp Hike is one of the best treks in the world!

Day 1

On this Nepal hiking tour, we will pick you up from Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, Nepal and transport you to our hotel in Thamel (tourist section of Kathmandu). We will have some free time to rest, eat and have showers. This evening we meet for team introductions, trip orientation and meet our Nepali guides tonight for a thorough introduction on our itinerary to Annapurna Basecamp. We then go out to dinner at our favorite local Tibetan restaurant. Be sure to drink copious amounts of water en route, as flying and traveling will certainly dehydrate you. Self-care begins immediately.

This morning we depart Kathmandu around 8 am. We board on our private vehicle and set off for roughly 11 hours to Nepal’s second largest city, Pokhara (2,713ft/827m)!

Hiking on a stone paved trail we will reach the small village of Kimche. After a short break, we will finish our day’s trek at the village of Ghandruk.

From this vantage point we will gain spectacular views of the Annapurna region’s alpine peaks. After an easier downhill walk, we will reach the village of Chhomrong (7,120ft/2170m).

Guides adhere to standardized risk management protocols in case of any potential or actual incident, and all tours carry an emergency communication device and comprehensive first-aid kit.

Essential Eligibility Criteria

Essential Eligibility Criteria (“EEC”) have been specifically identified to help you understand the skills and abilities necessary to participate on each Wildland trip, and they apply uniformly to all potential trip participants, irrespective of the presence or absence of any disability.

Once you identify a trip in which you may be interested, please carefully review the EEC and itinerary details. If after reviewing the EEC that apply to your desired trip, you determine you need an accommodation in order to meet the EEC, please contact us prior to registering to discuss your requested accommodation.

The EEC exist for your own safety and the safety and enjoyment of all participants. If you are unable to meet the EEC for the trip, with or without an accommodation, you are not eligible for that trip. If you register and arrive for a trip for which you do not meet the EEC, you will be disqualified from participation on the trip and will be dismissed or evacuated from the trip without a refund.


Our approach to international travel is to combine the best of two worlds: the dialed-in details, professionalism and consistency Wildland trips are known for; and the cultural immersion and intimate regional knowledge that only locals can provide. To excel with this approach, we vet and hire the best local guides, welcome them into the Wildland family and train them to meet our standard of excellence with every aspect of a trip. But along with managing logistics and safety, your guides will teach you about the area’s history and culture, and provide a level of familiarity and intimate detail only locals can.

Check out our Meet Our Team page for staff bios.

Guide Working Parameters

Guides are required to take 8 hours off each 24-hour period to sleep, recuperate, take personal/down time…etc. In addition, as part of the 8 hours off they must sleep/rest or be in their tents/rooms uninterrupted for a minimum of 5 hours each night. We ask guests to respect these requirements and to not interrupt guides’ off time and sleep time unless there is a true emergency.

Trip Insurance Requirements

Field evacuation and repatriation insurance (at least $200,000) is required on all Nepal trips as a condition of partnership terms with our Nepali vendors. Additional travel medical coverage is strongly recommended.

If you need to purchase field evacuation, repatriation and medical coverage insurance, we recommend IMG/iTravelinsured. They are one of the world’s leading providers of travel insurance and policies meet all Nepali requirements. Their Travel LX policy fully covers all Nepali requirements.

If you already have the required insurance or wish to purchase from anyone other than IMG/iTravelinsured, we recommend careful consultation with the provider to ensure appropriate coverage. This is because many providers have a number of policy exclusions (of particular note for Nepal is to check field evacuation elevation limits).

Weather in Nepal

Nepal is home to the highest mountain range in the world, the Himalayas. Kathmandu is at an elevation of 4600 feet, but the high points on our Nepal Treks are very high between 13,000 to 18,000 feet. Because of these significant elevation changes and the general unpredictability of mountain weather systems, the temperatures and weather can vary wildly and change rapidly during trips. Higher elevation will mean cooler temperatures.Higher elevation will mean cooler temperatures.

The chart below shows the temperature and precipitation averages for Kathmandu & Everest Base Camp. This allows a comparison of both the low elevation and high elevation temperature and precipitation averages that one may experience on their trip depending on the highest elevation reached on a specific itinerary and the month(s) visiting Nepal.

The average temperatures and precipitation in the Himalayan region are:

Kathmandu (4.6K ft)

We love this hotel and it is one of the original, well-known and best 3 star boutique hotels in Kathmandu, Nepal. It is perfectly situated close to the Tribhuwan International Airport and is located in the exciting district of Thamel; making it very enjoyable and convenient to our guests. We know you will love the view from the rooftop!




This hotel in Pokhara offers extraordinary service, a phenomenal location for the beginning of your Annapurna Trek, plenty of space, and comfortable, modern amenities including an indoor pool and spa. Add great views from the rooms’ picture windows, and the result is a lodge that does not disappoint!




Tea houses are inns/guest houses with sleeping rooms and home cooked meals. They vary depending on their remoteness. Lower ones have more amenities, such as flush toilets, showers and nicer dining rooms. As we ascend, they get more rustic with simpler “squat” toilets and more basic amenities. Rooms are communal with 2 or 3 beds.

* These exact accommodations are not guaranteed. In some instances alternative accommodations of similar quality and location may be used.

Great Adventure

What an adventure!!!! Wildland took great care of us and showed us the beauty of Nepal.

Exciting and Fun

2 years ago

We just completed the MBC to ABC trek with Bishnu as our guide. The trip ran super smooth and Bishnu made the trip exciting and fun. The pace he set insured no blisters or broken down knees and completion of the trek for both me and my daughter. He had a great relationship with our porter which made the trip that much more fun. We played cards and dined quite a bit together. I would recommend this trek without reservation. Great trip. Thanks to Bishnu and Jeevan for the organization.
