Why you'll love this trip
  • Witness the sheer beauty of the diverse Himalayan landscape as you hike through remote villages, fairy-tale forests, vast moorlands cut by cascading rivers and the blue-hued peaks of base camp as they glow under starlight!
  • Experience a magical sunrise over the Annapurna ranges from the spectacular heights of Poon Hill – an early morning hike to this prime spot will be well worth the effort.
  • Relax and unwind in Pokhara after your trek, choose to cruise along Phewa Tal (Lake) and gaze up at snow-capped mountains or opt for a relaxing massage to rejuvenate those tired legs.
  • Be accompanied by an experienced trek leader along with assistant guides and porters, who will not only give you all the support and guidance you need along the way, but also introduce you to the rich local Sherpa culture.
  • Know that you are supporting a company that operates their treks according to standards that provide respectful, safe and fair working conditions not only in Nepal, but on all trips globally.

Is this trip right for you?
  • There are 10 days of strenuous trekking on this trip. You’ll be trekking up to 8 hours a day and at altitudes over 4000 metres at times, so you need to be aware of altitude sickness. Visit for more information.
  • It’s very important it is to be in excellent fitness and health, which means training in the lead up to your trip in order to be best prepared.
  • The trekking lodges, known as teahouses, that you stay in on the trek are very simple with only basic facilities. Hot water may not always be available and may cost extra, as will access to electricity points for charging devices. Wifi is available at some locations, but connections may be poor.
  • What you need to take will vary depending on the season you are trekking in and it’s important to be prepared. See some tips for what to pack here:
  • The Annapurna trek is a popular route and you will encounter many other trekkers and groups on your trip during your hike and at the teahouses. If you are after a trek that sees less travellers and spends more time trekking through communities rather than on a more established route, see our Tamang Heritage & Langtang Valley Trek (HNXV).
  • Due to the nature of outdoor travel, please be aware that this trip will operate on an amended itinerary in high risk weather conditions.

Heading: The trip of a Lifetime. For years I dreamed of travel to Nepal and to visit the Himalays region. The opportunity arose in December when my fried living in Australia invited me to join an Intrepid trip to the Annapurna Base Camp. We arrived in Kathmandu and commenced our trek on April the 1st 2023. There was plenty of steps from Day 1 and this continued throughout the trek. The final uphill leg was from Machhapuchhre Base Camp to ABC was a thrilling experience as I now knew I was about to do it. The weather was really beautiful and the sight of the Annapurna Base Camp notice NAMASTE was like I have won the Lottery. The overnight there and the sunrise in the morning was something that will last in my memories for the rest of my life. Finally a big thanks to the Intrepid team of Leader Prasamsha, ASSISTANT Guides: Bibash & Niv and The Porters Team of Chandra, Binod, Kumar, Poem, Akal and Chandra (Moon) just a bunch of great guys. Thanks to you all guys for such a memorable memories.
