A lovely woodland route and terraces of rice farms lead to the Annapurna Base Camp at 4100m. As you gain height, the scenery swiftly transforms from tropical jungle to knee-deep snow and magnificent snow-capped peaks.

All about Annapurna trek
- If you need last-minute clothing and supplies before the journey, you may do so in Pokhra.
No trekking socks with you? Not a single. If you need any last-minute trekking gear, Pokhara is your last stop. In this laid-back tourist town, you’ll find a variety of stores providing trekking and camping goods In Pokhara, you’ll be able to buy or rent extra goods.
- Hiring or purchasing trekking poles is a wise investment.
Taking a short break. With the help of trekking poles, you can decrease the pressure on your joints and have extra stability when you need it most. Poles might be a bit of a challenge at first, but they will help you get through the trek.
- Many stairs on your way.
When things are going well, they’re followed by downs. Assume that you’ll have to go up
hundreds of stone stairs, stroll for 10 minutes on a flat route and then trek.
Even while you’ll feel it in your lungs as you’re ascending, your knees and toes will take the brunt.
- Passing porters, jeeps, and mules
Take a trip to spend some time on a gravel road with automobiles and jeeps the first day of the journey. Trekkers and porters will also share the trail with a variety of agricultural animals like buffalo and goat herds on every other day of the trip. There is no better way to avoid a steep plunge than to stroll on the mountainside when someone or something is going by.
- Make sure you have enough cash.
Pokhara is the last place where you can obtain money or use your credit card, so you’ll have to carry cash for everything. we are talking about all meals and snacks.
- Toilet paper is no exception.
All of the teahouses Intrepid visits have western toilets, but none of them offer toilet paper. Check to see whether you have a roll of toilet paper in your bag.
- There are plenty of showers, not so with hot water.
Although most of the teahouses where Intrepid stays provide showers, hot water is an extra charge. In addition, there will be evenings when it will be too chilly to shower. Walking to Annapurna Base Camp is a great opportunity to embrace your natural scent and save water. After reaching altitude, it becomes difficult to sleep. Until we reached Machhapuchhre Base Camp, I slept soundly every night. Breathing is difficult at 3700 meters (12,139 ft) above sea level because oxygen levels are depleted. Many people who go to high elevations have difficulty sleeping, falling asleep, and staying asleep. Take care of your body by giving it plenty of rest.
- Awe-inspiring landscape
You have no
idea how breath-taking the trip to Annapurna Base will be. Walk through fields of sunflowers and marigolds, then into the forest and rainforest, under the thick green canopy and multicolored prayer flags. You’ll walk through bamboo woods and dodge fruit-throwing monkeys one day, and the next, a vast valley with pink rhododendrons and grey granite slabs. You may always take a break and glance about if you’re feeling fatigued.

Both the TIMS (Trekkers Information Management System) and the Annapurna Conservation Area. Entry Permit must be obtained in order to do this journey. Pokhara’s
tourism office sells both permits, and if needed, visas for Nepal may be renewed here. A permission check is done at each stop along the way.
