COME AS A TRAVELER AND LEAVE AS A STORYTELLER

 

Accommodations

Hotels in Pokhara were carefully selected for their comfort, service, staff friendliness and commitment to sustainability.   Rooms will have single or double beds with heat, full toilet bathrooms and other amenities.  While trekking, the teahouses or guesthouses are simple and basic, but you will be well taken care of. There are typically 2 – 3 small beds per room. Some guest houses have inside toilets whereas others might have an outhouse located outside. 

 

 

 

During high season one room per two clients may not be always available. If this should happen we request our clients to be flexible and share a triple or room with four beds. 

 


Meals

 

During our Annapurna Base Camp Trek, we can enjoy authentic Nepalese food as well the more common international cuisine (Tibetan, Continental, Italian, Indian, etc.). Breakfast and dinner will be served from the tea-houses or from a lodge menu where we spend the night whereas lunch will be served on the way to the next destination. All meals will be provided during trekking while only breakfast will be available while in  Pokhara. 

 

 

 

Nepal has great food. Dal (lentils), bhat (rice), aloo (potatoes), tarkari (curried vegetable) are common.  Pokhara offer a wide range of cuisine including favorite western dishes.  While trekking: breakfast might be Tibetan bread – pan fried bread served with mountain honey and butter, or muesli, or an occasional omelet.

 

 

 

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

 

This is moderate trek suitable for passionate walkers with the ability to walk at least 5-7 hours a day with a light day pack. Walking in higher altitudes is more physically demanding than walking in lower altitudes; however, if we are in excellent health with average physical fitness and have a positive attitude, self confidence and strong determination, we can accomplish this trek successfully. Exercising and jogging regularly for some weeks prior to the trip is a good idea to enhance our strength and stability. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skill is required for this trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases are required to consult their doctor before taking the trip.

 

Best Time to Travel 
Autumn (Sept. to Nov.) and Spring (March to May) are the best seasons for the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. If you wish to avoid crowds and enjoy some alone time with nature then taking this trip during winter (Dec., Jan. and Feb.) could also be an option. However, the temperature during winter could be harsh for most guests. Trekking in the Summer or Monsoon seasons (June to Aug.) will be affected by rain but the Summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist.
