Overview

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is one of the most popular journeys in Nepal. Annapurna Base Camp is a Grade B or a temperately laborious trekking route. So, any fit person can do this trek, even if you do not have any previous experience. It is a considerably easy and shorter trek than other high altitude treks in Nepal. You should be aware of what to expect and mentally prepare for it. Then, as long as you dare to, you can. This trek incorporates diverse terrain, culture, and wildlife. Along with the most spectacular and close up view of Annapurna range, Machhapuchhre, Hiunchuli, and Dhaulagiri.

The Annapurna Base Camp Trek is also known as the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek because you walk along the protected area's trail. The Annapurna Base Camp Trek can be considered as much of an ecclesiastical journey as a venturesome one. It is considered one of the most beautiful sanctuaries in the world- protecting not only the floral and faunal species of the land but also its natural environment and the local ethnic culture. Throughout the trip, you can enjoy and encounter local ethnic Gurung and Magar cultures at small settlements and villages. Sitting at an altitude of 4,000 meters, the Sanctuary is an oval-shaped plateau that is surrounded by a ring of the Annapurna Mountains. Due to its unique terrain, trekking through it presents you with a flourishing Himalayan ecosystem that consists of lush woodlands blended with drier terrains. As you ramble along the unsophisticated trails that are adorned with rhododendron canopies, you can also come across Thakali people who have dainty villages at the foothills of the Annapurna Himalayas.

Encountering small chores and goombas, the trekking trail is a tranquil journey of exotic traditions that transports you to another time. Gliding farmlands and terrace rice farms are also a common sight while trekking, and thick pine and bamboo forests make the adventure a relaxing escape away from the bustling cities.

Once again a great quick trip this time to Annapurna Base Camp with DWT and Simbir. Overall very well planned and executed trip. Service was so meticulous and top-notch it made the other trekkers jealous. For example, Simbir made it a point to prepare after-meal fruits at dinner which drew the envy of many others. Thank you once again for the great trip, looking forward to the next! :)

Having recently returned to Minnesota from Nepal I must say this Trek was the experience of a lifetime! Paul was very good at answering questions promptly before we left. Our guides picked us up from the airport and brought us to the hotel even though the trek was still days away. We met with Paul to cover the details of the trek beforehand (and also I think to assess our fitness level since there were 5 family members ages between late 40’s to mid 60’s), it was pretty thorough. Our guides Simbir and Maniss led us from the hotel to the tourist bus and all throughout the trek and back so that we never had to worry about transportation. On the trek they were very attentive to our needs, one in the front of the group and one in the rear, by me! They booked all our rooms and took all our food orders, even supplying apples and pomegranate seeds after meals. The food really exceeded our expectations. They also carried snacks for us and made a special chili sauce for us to enjoy. There were times when the hills and the heat were really challenging for us and Simbir would offer to carry our day packs and extra water to lighten the load. I also really enjoyed their enthusiasm, you could tell they love the scenery as much as we did. Annapurna base camp was amazingly beautiful, make sure to venture out at night. Simbir has a nice camera and took many photos of us on the trek, including some great group shots!We had 3 wonderful porters; Manchit, Kul and Umesh. I was glad to know that DWT has weight limits for their porters, it was important to us that they were treated well. The entire company is from the Gurung region and are like family.A few suggestions I would make:The bus ride from Kathmandu to Pokhara was supposed to be 6-7 hours but it was 9 3/4 hours and the roads are bad. You might want to not do that both ways. On the way back we decided to fly, it was a beautiful 25 minute flight on Yeti airlines and Simbir and Paul made all the arrangements. $120 well spent.I’m not sure it’s possible, but if we could have trekked shorter distances each day and stretched the trip to 9 or 10 days, it would have been more enjoyable for us. I think most people that do the trek are younger than us and recover easier.The guest house accommodations get tighter as you approach base camp. We always had a place to stay and a comfortable bed with a warm comforter, but some nights we needed to share a room, among our party of five.Overall it was an amazing experience and accomplishment and I would recommend Discovery World Trekking to anyone planning to go to Nepal.
