Best Time to Visit

There is no particular best season to visit in Nepal as it can be done in all seasons, although in the winter the Annapurna Base Camp is often closed due to the excessive snow and the threat of avalanches. Visiting here in winter is still a thrill and you should not discount the experience. Still, the best time for you to do one week ABC Trip is around October and November.

ABC Trek Difficulty

This trip is considered Demanding. A good level of cardiovascular fitness and some trekking experience is strongly advised. On a scale of 1 to 10, then this course is rated 7. Your safety and the safety of the support team safety of everyone on the trek is our highest concern and like all strenuous treks, the this ABC one week trek is treated as an expedition. Altitude Sickness, Accommodation, Food, Weather, Lack of proper guide maybe some common Annapurna Base Camp trekking Difficulty. 

Altitude Sickness

AMS comes into effect usually because a trekker or climber ascends too quickly. As the air becomes thinner, there is less oxygen available. Your lungs need time to adjust in order to carry much-needed oxygen to the different parts of your body. SO walk slowly and keep yourself hydrated.

Accommodation

On ABC Trek, all accommodation is included in the price. You will stay in either a guesthouse or a teahouse. Which one depends on the time of year you are trekking.

A Guesthouse is more like a low budget hotel room in the way to Base Camp. You will likely have a shower and a western toilet (they will be shared with other trekkers). You may also have WiFi. A Teahouse is basically an extension of a family home (usually very basic, most likely no shower and a drop toilet.) In either case, the hospitality is always outstanding.

Food

While on the Trek, all food is included in the price. The food is basic but extremely nutritious to keep you going. When a package includes nights in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan etc, the price includes breakfast as long as you have it at the Hotel.
