Your safety and the safety of the support team safety of everyone on the trek is our highest concern and like all strenuous treks, this trek is treated as an expedition. Altitude Sickness, Accommodation, Food, Weather, Lack of proper guide maybe some common Annapurna Base Camp trek 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. If you feel the symptoms of Nausea, Difficulty to breathe, don’t force yourself and come down. However, walking slowly and keeping yourself hydrated keeps one step away from sickness.

The weather may be a challenge for ABC Trekkers. Annapurna Base Camp route is often closed due to heavy snowfall. Trekking in winter is really heart-shivering.

So, it’s better to go trekking after checking the weather updates.The temperature ranges from -10 to 20 degree celcius at Annapurna Base Camp. Trekking in winter and summer will be very challenging by weather conditions. However, trekking in the Autumn and Spring is very easy.

Accommodation

On ABC Trek , all accommodation is included in the price. After Chhomrong ( en trek route) you will stay in either a guesthouse or a teahouse. A Guesthouse is more like a low budget hotel room. 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.) The rooms are simple but comfort to sleep and rest. Moreover, you will experience world renowned hospitality of Nepali – ATITHI DEBO VABA. The price of room increases as we climb up.

The trek starts from Nayapul. we will spend 2 days in Pokhara at standard rooms. At Pokhara, the accommodation is more luxurious. We stay at hotels. You will have a private room, private toilet, hot shower, powers, TV, wi-fi and all.

Foods

As we will be trekking in the higher elevation, it is very essential to fill yourself with proper fabrics, carbs, proteins, and nutrition. All food costs are included in the price. The food is basic but extremely nutritious to keep you going.  You can not get large varieties of dish on trek expect Pokhara and Kathmandu.

The general menu will have Breakfast ( Toast with Jam, Butter, Cheese, and Honey; Eggs either fried or boiled; Pancakes and Chapatis ), Lunch and Dinner ( Dal, Bhat and Tarkari; Noodles; Potatoes; Macaroni; Breads; Chowmein etc.) The price of food increases as you climb up.

Arriving in Nepal, my husband and I were going to go to the mountains alone. Having drawn a map in advance and prepared the entire route, we were sure that we would not be distracted by guides. but in this country nothing can be known for sure 🙂 this is the coolest madness of improvisation
Krishna enthusiastically told us how easily we can conquer our first peak. no waste of time on obtaining permits and other documents, only an anxious expectation of trekking
