Description

Today is your day, Your Annapurna is waiting, so get on your way

The Annapurna region is Nepal’s most popular trekking destination with four of the world’s highest mountains and the world’s deepest valley within its boundaries. Gateway to the region is the lovely lakeside town of Pokhara, an idyllic place to relax after a long trek. Central Nepal is dominated by the Annapurna Himal and the village of Pokhara. There are three major trekking routes in central Nepal: to Jomsom, to Annapurna Sanctuary, and a circuit of the Annapurna Himal itself. Pokhara is also a good starting place for short treks of one to four days, including the “Royal” trek, which is described here. Mustang is also geographically a part of the Annapurna region, but because treks to Mustang are subject to special restrictions, this is described it on the separate page on restricted area treks. About two-thirds of the trekkers in Nepal visit the Annapurna region. The area is easily accessible, hotels in the hills are plentiful, and treks here offer good scenery of both high mountains and lowland villages.

It might happen only in certain places in the Annapurna Region.

During your trip as long as you are in Kathmandu and Pokhara, there are plenty of food choices to choose from your own taste as it offers varieties of restaurants. All the foods are included in the package during your trekking. While you are on walking you will have the lunch at a suitable place but breakfast and dinner are provided by the tea house or lodge and yes all the tea houses or lodge provide the international standard of food in your entire time of walking in the Annapurna. Please do let us know if you are a vegetarian, vegans, gluten-free or celiac in advance so it helps to organize you on time. Some places are not allowed to sacrifice the animals so you must choose vegetarian foods.

Guides

You will meet your local trekking expert guides in Pokhara who are Government license holder with good in communication and friendly and are equipped with essential local knowledge and can discuss with you about the trekking, local surroundings, people and Culture and of course the Himalayas of Nepal. Ask our Guides question as much you can, they would be more than happy to share their experiences and stories behind the scene being guiding in the mountain. 

Porter:

Without Porter, walking in the mountain stops. Porter is one of the vital people in your entire trekking time as they will help us carry our essential equipment during our trek and are friendly and good at communication. This is why we respect our porter at all times, they are the backbone of trekking, climbing, and mountaineering. 

Drinking Water

During the trekking bottled mineral waters are not included and we suggest you keep a few empty bottles with you. Each and every tea houses or lodges or local shops, you can buy bottled water or you can fill local tap water that comes from the Himalayas or you may fill hot or warm water. As you go up in high altitude, the bottled water prices go up cause transportation and importing cost for the local people too. This is why we suggest you bring a portable water filter for your own which is much helpful in rural Nepal.

ESSENTIAL INFORMATION

Altitude Sickness

1. Basic Symptoms:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Difficult to pass urine

2. Medium Symptoms:

  • A headache which is bad
  • Irregular breathing
  • Nausea
  • Mild weakness

3. Serious Symptoms:

  • Slight swelling of hands and face
  • Cannot stand upright without swaying while eyes are closed.
  • Can hear the gurgling sound in the chest.
  • Zero energy.

What to do about Altitude Sickness? Altitude illness can be prevented by acclimatization; that is, by a graduate rate of ascent (not more than 400 – 500 meters), allowing sufficient rest at various intermediate altitudes. The dry air of the mountains tends to dehydrate you so an increased fluid intake is necessary. Try to drink at least four liters of water a day. On the trail, you can drink hot garlic soup that will help you to some extent. When we reach our destination it is better to make some hiking up to a bit higher point and come down to the camp or hotel. This is a really good way to get acclimatization. You may take Diamox 250mg tablets the night before flying/going to altitude. Sometimes the symptoms often disappear and the trek can be resumed.

If you feel obviously suffering from the serious symptoms of AMS then descent should not be delayed even if it means going down in dark. In such case, should an emergency situation arise, horse or porter will be arranged, or we carry you and run to lower (descend) altitudes? We can arrange for immediate evacuation, by horse or helicopter, depending on the severity of the case.

The best time for Annapurna Base Camp Trek is during Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November). You can have the most amazing views while trekking at moderate temperature. If you can adjust the cold temperature, you can also do the trekking in the winter.
