On average, trekkers will cover 10km and walk 6 hours per day during their ABC trek.

Yes, there is a hot shower facility in the trek, but trekkers need to pay an extra charge for the service.

Yes, the ABC trek is suitable for beginners as well. Any person with a normal fitness level can join the trip as long as they can walk 5-6 hours a day on average.

The estimated cost of the Annapurna base camp trek comes around $600-$1000. But the cost mainly depends upon the days you spend in the upper region, the room you choose, and the foods you eat during the trip.

Although trekkers can join for the ABC trek throughout the year, the month March to May (Spring) and September to November (Autumn) are considered to be the best month as the sky is crisp, the weather is clear, the trail is filled with blossoming wildflowers and trekkers can enjoy the remarkable sights of the Himalayas.

Since the temperature is warm during this time, you will love the whole trekking experience. However, if you love winter and the cold does not bother you much, you can trek in winter (December to February).

Both National and International visitors need to have a few documents with them for the ABC trek. Below—mentioned are the two most required documents to trek in the region.

Permits and Fees in Annapurna Region:
▪ ACAP entry permit fee for International Visitors: 3,000 NPR (Approx. $27)
▪ ACAP entry permit fee for SAARC nationals: 200 NPR
▪ TIMS permit: 1,000 NPR (Approx. $9)

The Permits and TIMS cards can be purchased in Kathmandu at Nepal Tourism Board Office on Pradarshani Marg.

Trekkers who do not want any other trekkers to accompany them during the trek can do solo trek in the Annapurna region. Going on a solo trek means you will be enjoying every bit of the scenery without being worried about being left out in a group or so. But if this is your first trek in Nepal and you do not have enough information, we recommend you hire a local guide.

The tea houses in the Annapurna region offer many options when it comes to food. For breakfast, you will be served oatmeal, corn flakes, french toast, eggs, soup, pancakes, and other items. Likewise, for Lunch and dinner, the menu is the same consisting of Dal Bhat, Momo, Noodles, Spaghetti, Pasta, Salad, Roti Tarkari.
