Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Overall, it is considered a moderate to strenuous trek with a few challenging uphill sections. The trek involves walking for several hours each day, usually between 5-7 hours, and the trail can be steep and rocky in some places. There are also some high altitude sections where altitude sickness can be a concern, so it is important to take proper breaks on a hike and stay hydrated.


Generally, there are two main trekking seasons in Nepal - the spring season (March to May) and the autumn season (September to November). During these seasons, the weather is generally dry and stable, with clear skies and good visibility, making it ideal for trekking.

The spring season is a popular time for trekking in Nepal because the weather is mild and the rhododendron flowers are in full bloom, creating a colorful landscape. The autumn season is also a popular time for trekking as the weather is clear and stable, and the mountain views are usually spectacular. The temperatures are cooler during this time, and the trails are less crowded compared to the spring season.

It is possible to trek in Nepal during the winter (December to February), but the temperatures can be very cold, especially at high altitudes, and the trails can be snowy and slippery. The summer monsoon season (June to August) brings heavy rain and can make the trails muddy and difficult to navigate.


The highest point of the Annapurna Base Camp trek is Annapurna Base Camp itself, which is located at an altitude of 4,130 meters (13,550 feet) above sea level.


The accommodation during the trek is pretty basic. They do offer clean place but not modern luxury. Most of the place do offer attach bath but as you get to higher elevation there are communal bathrooms.


No, you don’t need any prior experience of trekking. However it is better if you stay hydrated during the trek and do some general cardio before starting the trip.


Actually it’s not, but if you take them it will definitely be easier as there will be no chance of you getting lost on the trail as well as easier to communicate at the places. Having porter carrying your stuff lets you enjoy the views and walk freely on trails.


Definitely, some water proof boots, Gore-Tex jackets, pair of gloves, and pair of shocks for each day of your trek, dry fit t-shirts and your personal stuffs


One can expect the valley surrounded by mountains, diverse flora and fauna, amazing rhododendron forest and beautiful terrace farms of rice, paddy etc. another amazing thing is the amazing view from Poon Hill at 3,210m/10,523 feet. The village of Ghandruk, filled with beautiful views of mountains, amazing culture and local food.


Well, there are bottled water available in teahouses and in some resting spots too. It is advised use some purification tablets so you wont get sick. Better not to take risk as the water may or may not suit you body at higher Himalayas.


There are electricity available at every tea house everywhere on the trails. You can recharge your phone and electrical devices. You have to pay nominal charge in many places in order to charge your electronics. They do offer paid Wi-Fi service and charge hourly.
