Trek to Annapurna Base Camp

A World Class Trek Exploring the Annapurna Sanctuary

£1495-£1595, 15 Day Tour – Both set departures and private expeditions available

Trek-to-Annapurna-Base-Camp
Experience the majesty of the Annapurna Sanctuary and trek up close and into the high Himalayan alpine on this stunning teahouse trek to Annapurna Base Camp.

Begin on the doorstep of the world’s highest mountains before quickly ascending into a Himalayan wonderland. The ABC Trek follows valleys of rich, verdant forest and sparkling mountain rivers, trekking through traditional Gurung villages. The highlight and reward for your efforts is reaching a natural amphitheatre surrounded by panoramic views of towering 7,000m and 8,000m peaks, including Annapurna 1, Gangapurna and the spectacular Machhapuchhare (Fish Tail Mountain).

Soak in the glorious sunrise views on top of Poon Hill, walk in the footsteps of mountaineering history, and indulge in a relaxing dip in natural hot springs on our descent from the sanctuary.

No amount of words on a page or an image from a postcard can do this world-class trek justice. You’ll just have to see the staggering beauty of the Annapurna’s for yourself!

Trip Grading

Annapurna-Sanctuary
This trip is considered to be moderate. We trek into a fairly remote part of Nepal at higher altitudes than you are probably used to. There are a variety of steep ascents and descents, and we sometimes trek for 6-9 hours per day. As with most things a certain degree of fitness will make this trip more enjoyable.

Travelling to Nepal

You will need a passport with 6-month’s validity and you will need to obtain a Nepalese visa. The easiest way to get the visa is to buy it on entry to Nepal with either dollars or any major currency but not Nepali Rupees. Currently the cost for a single-entry visa valid for 15/30/90 days costs US$25/40/100. You can buy a visa in advance from the Neplese embassy in your home country if they have a location there. It is more expensive than buying it on arrival in Kathmandu and it doesn’t always save you time when you arrive as it is random which queue is longer. You also have to risk sending your passport off and they may take it for several weeks. You will need to buy travel insurance for your trip which you can find out about here. You also need to visit your GP or travel health professional at least 4-6 weeks before your trip to check what vaccinations you need.

For more information about travelling safely and obtaining passports you can see more at the FCO know before you go Travel Aware Campaign.
