Mission Himalaya treks suggest our valuable trekkers to trek via Poonhill for better acclimatization and another 8000m giant Himalaya named Dhaulagiri. Total 10 days is better to combo trek Poonhill and ABC.

Why is ABC trek hiker's favoured trek on the earth?

Annapurna Base Camp Treks is a well-liked trek that carries trekkers in front of Annapurna 1(one of the eighth thousandars) which is the 10th highest Himalayas on the earth. This trek is an average strenuous trek. Thus, moderately fit trekkers without prior trekking experience and technical skills can do this trek. Annapurna 1(8091m) is also named Annapurna massif and is the highest mortality mountain compared to other 8000m mountains. Trek bear specific precious cherish for Himalayan trek lovers.

Snow Himalaya Makes trekking Fascinating:

The Annapurna Mountain is just not seen from Pokhara. It is a long chain of mountains and a unique view from different places like Ghandruk, Ghorepani, Tadapani, Chhomrong, MBC, and ABC. The glory and charm of Machhapuchhre also named Fishtail in English is the adobe of God and it never allows us to summit. It is considered one of the sacred Himalayas and home of the God Mahadev- The god of Destroyer.

In Annapurna Base Camp there are just 4 lodges over and at the edge of the Annapurna glacier. From the Annapurna Base Camp, travelers observe the sunrise live in Himalaya including Annapurna south, Annapurna III Fang and Annapurna 1, Barashikhar, Fishtail, Himchuli, and Gandharva Chuli which turns to orange color from white. The sunset in Fishtail is also worth observing and fascinating in the evening.

Diversity of Flora Inside ACAP:

The trek route from Ulleri to Ghorepani, Ghorepani to Poon Hill and Tadapani, and Ghandruk to Bamboo offers different colours of Rhododendron flowers during the spring season. This trail also offers Bamboo, Fern, Oak.  After Deurali the forest finish and starts alpine grassland. MBC and ABC trail are alpine trails whereas the lower Annapurna regions are famous for cultivating and farming. Different kinds of vegetation are available. Depending on which season you are stepping in the Annapurna region you are likely to see farmlands of Rice, Potato, Wheat, Corn, Millet, and other numerous grains are available in lower trekking trails near the river Modi. Summer and spring seasons are popular for flowers.

Annapurna area is a living treasure for 33 reptiles, 22 Amphibious, 1225 Flowering plants, 102 mammals, and 475 kinds of birds so if you trek and are lucky you can explore more and more flowers and faunas.

Explore Local Culture:

Due to numerous small tea houses construction, ABC trek is a well-organized trek. With guides and porters, Tea houses staffs, and owners Local villagers communicate with trekkers in English to give hikers enough knowledge about local culture, tradition, food, lifestyle, and other several experiences. Especially Ghandruk and Chhomrong are huge settlements of Gurung ethnic cast people who are the soldiers in the Army not only in Nepal but also in the UK, Singapore, India, and Macaw. They are popularly known as Gurkha soldiers and while trekking, travellers have a great opportunity to learn their lifestyle, culture, and tradition face to face. In Ghorepani and Ulleri Pun Magar are popular whereas in Birethanti Thakali settlements can be explored if you trek via Ghorepani in 10 days.

Top 13 Hidden Information may be trekkers do not know before starting ABC trek But Must need to Know:

1, After Chhomrong to Annapurna Base Camp trekkers, need to hike just one trail and they need to back from the same trail so they have 2 chances to travel inside the alpine meadows forest and also have chance to see Fishtail and Annapurna South mountain twice.

2, Due to the Holy place and adobe of god Shiva is hardly restricted to bring meat items especially Chicken, Beef, Buffalo, Pork over the Sinuwa village 2340m. But packing fish and Tuna can bring with you.

Local people trust that if bring that kind of thing it will be a great chance of Natural disaster accident even please do not use the long toilet outside the hotels.

3, Poonhill and Annapurna Base Compare the 2 best places for sunrise and sunset. Poonhill needs 1 hours hike before sunrise whereas ABC sunrise can explore from Hotel. Travelers can walk 5 minutes to the edge of the Annapurna glacier if they like the best sunrise views. Please do not forget to bring Flashlight for the morning poon hill sunrise trek.

4, Two Base Camp in one trek Annapurna South Base Camp (4130m) and Fishtail or Machhapuchhre Base Camp (3700m) will double benefit trekkers.

5, Natural Hot spring near Jhinu Danda provides a new experience and the best opportunity to shower in front of nature. Only a few countries have natural hot springs. Do not forget to bring Swimming customs with you. Remember that it’s not a swimming spot. You can dip your body half inside the ponds. Doctors said some skin diseases will be terminated by those kinds of showers.

6, Tikhedhunga to Ulleri, Ghorepani to Poonhill, Chhomrong Khola to Sinuwa, and Deurali to ABC are more difficult trails during ABC trek due to numerous steps and sharp uphill trails.

7, ABC is probably the closest base camp to City. Within 3 to 4 days can reach Annapurna south base camp if they terminate the trails via Poonhill.

8, Very few lodges which have 25 to 30 person capacity so please if you will going to trek in higher season or lower season advance booking from the company is better. Your guide book the accommodation in advance.

9, Do not expect private accommodation in higher elevations due to numerous trekkers on this route. Trekkers need to share the room with another trekker with same-sex like them. If you travel in a big group we can provide the big rooms only for your groups.

10, The beginning of the trails from Nayapul to Hile and ending trail from Siwai to Nayapul are dusty due to new road construction if consult with us for escape this route and no of days.

11, From Sinuwa to ABC and Tadapani have no local villagers due to those places inside the conservation area. Those places just have few lodges for trekking purposes. Not allowed to make huge hotels due to pollution.

12, Three checkpoints in this trek in Chhomrong, Ghorepani, and Nayapul so please confirm with your guide must bring permits.

13, Annapurna Base Camp is not the Base Camp of Annapurna 1 climbers. Its base camp of Annapurna south whereas Annapurna base camp of 1 need to walk 6 hours from ABC. This trekking does not allow going to Base Camp of Annapurna 1.

Birendra is a caring and very experienced guide. He arranged everything for us in Nepal including transport and accommodation. He is very accurate on time management yet flexible on schedule when we wanted to change the plan during the trek. A humorous guy who gave us lots of fun during the trip! We had a cooking party at his house on the last day of our trip! I strongly recommend him to everyone traveling to Nepal. You can count on him with no doubt!

Even full of heavy snow, we all could complete the whole track under Birendra's team guidance and caring. Originally we did not have great hope to arrive base camp but finally, we did it. The snowy scenes were stunning and it looked like an adventure for all of us. Great fun, exciting experience, and safe trip. Looking forward to having the next trekking in Nepal.
