Annapurna Base Camp Trek
900

Overview

During this incredible expedition, you’ll be able to see thirteen peaks above 8000m. To add to that, other sixteen peaks above 7000m. Majestic view of Machhapuchhare (6,993m), Hiunchuli (6,641m), and Annapurna make this trek extremely gratifying. Mounting up through the Modi Khola valley towards the Annapurna conservation area, we are driven and inspired by the views of soaring summits and stupendous tall rocky walls with waterfalls roaring down into the dwindling river below. As the valley broadens, we rise to Machhapuchhare Base Camp (3,700m) on the glacial deposit of Annapurna South Glacier.

The sturdy hike up to Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) divulges the full grandeur of the fastest growing mountains of the world! On reaching our destination, we will be overwhelmed by the grand mountains guarding in all directions. We will walk along an altered trail to our destination and relish the views of Annapurna I from a different angle. There will be a short diversion up to the beautiful Poonhill (3,210m) before exiting the Annapurna Conservation Area, which will offer to us a chance to view the absolutely regal Himalayan peak Dhaulagiri (8,167m).

  1. Annapurna Base Camp Trek
    We had an amazing experience! Nepal Eco Adventure provided us with gear, accommodation and transportation service and an amazing guide. Keshab, knew a lot and was super friendly. During our trip we enjoyed the typical Nepali milked tea and Dahl Bat, in addition to the amazing views of the ninetieth highest mountain in the world. Don't miss it! Highly recommended!!
  2. Annapurna Base Camp Trek
    Myself and 3 others did the classic Annapurna Base Camp trek with Nepal Eco Adventures in mid May and we couldn't have had a better experience. Chattra was great in answering any questions and making last minute changes for us and our guide Keshab was wonderful. Keshab was always there to take care of all of our needs before, during and after the hike. He is a kind person and we shared a lot of fun moments with him. He spoke great English, gave us tips on what we should and shouldn't eat, made sure we had a wonderful time and we always felt extremely safe and secure. The views were spectacular, and the overall trip was amazing. I highly recommend this trip and company to everyone.
  3. Annapurna Base Camp Trek
    We engaged in Nepal Eco Adventure through their website and contacted Chhatra. After discussing the itinerary through email, we made arrangements to travel to Nepal at the end of May. It was the end of the peak season so the crowd was a lot lesser. We were introduced to our guide Ramesh and then our 9 day trek begins. Annapurna Base Camp trek could be a little tough for people who do not really exercise because the terrain is mountainous and we had to ascend and descend steep slopes almost everyday. One of us had suffered from pain in the knee and Ramesh helped a lot with his first aid knowledge and medicines that he carried with him. Ramesh is an experienced guide who will do his best to make sure our needs were met. Our assistant guide Sandeep was very patient and friendly. He would always walk behind us as the last man and the ones who had fall behind the group were looked after. He would often assist Ramesh in taking orders for our meals and requests in the tea houses. It was a great trip with Nepal Eco Adventure and things such as logistics and accommodation in Kathmandu and during trekking went mostly smoothly as planned. Last but not least, the porters were wonderful. They worked hard to transport our bags and sometimes assisted us in ways more than they should have.
  4. Annapurna Base Camp Trek
    How do you pick a guide from the thousands that present on the web these days? Especially when your dream is to travel to Nepal, and complete a trek for the first time in your life. I hope the following may help some people make a good decision for themselves in choosing a guide for what we initially thought was going to be a once in a life time experience, although we are now coming back for more!!! We are not so young anymore, although reasonably fit. One of us also has a kind of dodgy knee which just adds to the mix. We were lucky in that our much younger and very fit son had recommended and encouraged us to contact Chhatra Karki in Nepal, although I must say we were worried that Chhatra might be expecting we could match our son’s fitness and strength. A few years ago, our son and Chhatra had trekked together for a considerable time, including around the Annapurna Circuit. All I can say is we did bight the bullet and we contacted Chhatra by email on: chhatra_karki@yahoo.co.uk. Right from the first response we felt at ease and knew our trek to the Annapurna Base Camp was going to be well worth the effort.You probably need to know that sometimes you may need to wait a while for a response from Chhatra because he does the trekking himself and may be in the mountain when you first try to make contact but he will respond when he can. There were so many important things for us about our trek, but briefly: Chhatra is a registered guide; he’s local; he’s independent so we know our money was going to stay in Nepal; this also means that comparitively, Chhatra’s prices are much cheaper than bigger companies; Chhatra grew up in the mountains and knows them so well; he’s patient with even dodgy knees and watches closely at all times for how we’re faring; he’s flexible; has a great sense of compassion; has years of experience despite his young looks; he has a wonderful head porter by the name of Santosh who is lots of fun to have around, plus he knows all there is to know about leeches, and was always concerned about our care and wellbeing. Chhatra has fantastic English skills (my attempts at Nepali have vene improved), and he impressed us both by the way he encouraged Santosh to learn English,and his general interest and concern about Santosh’ future. We have learned a lot about Nepal on our trek, and it has been made relevant by the stories Chhatra has told us. He has a strong commitment to Nepal’s future, and the future of our environment in general. Chhatra’s been a guide for a long time. We are already planning our next trek with him and hopefully some of our friends will come with us this time. I would suggest that if you have any queries about trekking in Nepal that you contact Chhatra and run your ideas past him. I’m sure like us you won’t be disappointed.
