Overview of Annapurna base camp trek

When we discuss about the Annapurna Base Camp, there is a feeling of admiration that develops which leaves every trekker mesmerized and hypnotized. Annapurna Base Camp trek is commonly known as ABC trek. The trek is popular with trekkers from all over the world due to its global fame. As you trek through the Annapurna Sanctuary, you come across some stunning flora and fauna. There are very few treks that have this mystic aura of making you fall in love with the landscapes and bring you close to the base of 7,000m and 8,000m peaks in such a short time. The Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the most well-known treks in this region. The trail is a stunning one which will take you through various lush rhododendron forests, rice paddies, and high-altitude landscapes with the Annapurna Range floating in front of your eyes.
The breathtaking views of the Annapurna range are a feast for mountain lovers. Before you even start the trek, you will also be greeted by views of Hiunchuli, Machapuchare, and Annapurna South. This is a bonus for all trekkers. Views of different peaks of the Machapuchare I and Annapurna massif will always be in front of our eyes all the way till Sinuwa. With proper guidance, training, experience and skill set you can attempt this trek and enjoy the scenic beauty of the Himalayas in Nepal. The trek will give you a chance to catch a glimpse of Nepali culture and hospitality making it a memorable one in your entire life time.

Why Annapurna base camp trek ?

I) When you journey through distant villages, fanciful woods, wide moorlands traversed by flowing rivers, and the blue-hued peaks of base camp that glimmer beneath the stars, you will get to experience the breathtaking diversity of the Himalayan scenery!

II) Poon Hill’s breathtaking vantage point will allow you to witness a glorious dawn over the Annapurna Mountains; the early-morning climb to get there will be well worth the effort.

III) The Annapurna route offers lodging in traditional teahouses where delectable Nepalese cuisine is served. Locals in the area who have migrated from different regions of Nepal manage these teahouses. This area is home to several floral and animal species, and you will be in awe of the beauty it has to offer. You can view the entire sanctuary, which is oval-shaped and encircled by a ring of the Annapurna Alps, from a height of 4,000 metres.

IV) You will get to witness the majestic views of Hiunchuli, Khangsar, Gangapurna, Annapurna South Annapurna I, Annapurna III and Machhapuchhare

V) In Himalaya, you will be amazed to find pizza in the menu and you must try it out. Pizza at the altitude of 2890m will be one of the best memories you will take back with you. One will find this luxury of having Italian cuisine at such an altitude only in Nepal that too in reasonable price of 600 NC for 8 pieced chicken cheese pizza!

VI) Jhinu is a small village in this valley, popular for its hot spring. The hot spring is located at a distance of 2km from the main village. It will be relaxing experience when you take a dip in the water of the hot spring which was made to collect in a man-made pool. There was a constant turnover of the hot water as the fresh hot water filled the pool from one end and a drain on the other side made way for the cooler water. The rapid river just beside the pool of the hot spring made it spooky as the darkness set in.

VII) You can come to Kaathmandu a day before the trek begins and you can visit Darbar square and Boudha stupa. You can take a walk in the zigzag lanes of Thamel market buying souvenirs and try hands on various types of singing bowls. If one gets to spend a night in Kathmandu, one must experience the night life of Thamel when the pubs & bars get dressed in multicolored lights with music that can be heard in the lanes.

Reaching Basecamp

Our basecamp is Kathmandu, from where we will start our journey. It is advisable to reach Kathmandu a day before the trek starts, so that you can acclimatize and also roam around the beautiful city.  In order to reach Kathmandu you can choose one of the 3 ways given below :

By Air

Taking a flight out of India is the best method to get to Kathmandu. The busiest and most renowned airport in the nation is the Tribhuvan International Airport of Kathmandu, which is barely 6 km from the city. It has good connections to several Indian cities, including Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Lucknow, Pune, Bangalore, and more. It takes around an hour and a half to go 800 kilometres. With the international terminal, Nepal and Kathmandu are linked to over 30 cities in Europe and Asia. Air India and Jet Airways often provide the finest flights from India to Kathmandu.

By Train

You must use the Delhi-UP route if you’re taking a train from India to Kathmandu. The railroad station at Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh, which is easily accessible from Delhi, is the one closest to Kathmandu. This is as near as it gets, yet there is no direct train from India to Kathmandu, Nepal, to the city. An existing railway that connected Janakpur in Nepal with Jainagar in India is unnecessary. The remaining travel must be done by road starting at Gorakhpur. Three hours can be spent travelling in local buses or jeeps to Sunauli, where overnight buses to Kathmandu can be found waiting for passengers on the other side of the border at Bhairawa.

By Road

There are a number of road links between India and Kathmandu, and people from both nations utilise them rather frequently. The busiest border between India and Nepal is at Sunaili, which is reachable from Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh. Even though the town of Raxaul is not very exciting, it is regularly utilised in Bihar, close to Patna. Depending on the starting point, it might take anywhere between 7 and 10 hours to go directly by bus from Delhi, Varanasi, or Raxaul to Kathmandu. The Panitanki border is the ideal choice for individuals who live in the east, namely in West Bengal, Sikkim, and the north-eastern provinces of India. Between Siliguri in West Bengal and Gangtok in Sikkim, there are buses, jeeps, and rental automobiles that go to Kathmandu. The journey takes about 14-16 hours.
