Overview

The Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the most legendary treks in the world. Forcing you to face some of the biggest mountains on the planet, this two-week trek will challenge and delight you in equal measure.

From the moment you set off in Pokhara, you are treated to spectacular landscapes as you trek through the beautiful Magar, Gurung and Thakali villages. Sumptuous rhododendron forests and alpine vegetation will then lead you to your ultimate destination – the Annapurna Base Camp. Once atop the base camp, get ready to witness a spectacular view that is impossible to find anywhere else on earth.

This 14 day Annapurna Base Camp Trekking package familiarizes you with an exceptionally well-balanced ecosystem festooned with rich cultural diversity, allowing you to explore the diverse ethnic groups of the region and their interesting culture. As you pass through quaint villages accompanied by scenic mountains and friendly locals, the trail leads you to a deep gorge sliced by two peaks belonging to Mt. Hiunchuli (6441m) and Mt. Machhapuchhre (6993m). Here you will find the only gateway to the Annapurna Sanctuary, a unique glacial basin surrounded by the many riches of the Himalayas.

This trek has been rated as moderately difficult, however, you can be confident that our highly experienced team will be offering you constant support and stopping for breaks along the way. Some of the most spectacular rests allow you to observe the elite peaks of the western portion of the Annapurna Mountain Range, such as Hiunchuli (6,441m), Annapurna South (7279m), Annapurna Fang (7647m), Annapurna Mountain I (8091m), Gangapurna (7485m) and Annapurna III (7855m) and Machhapuchhre base camp (6993m)

However, the fun doesn’t stop here. On your way back, you will enjoy a natural hot spring in Jhinu Danda before reaching Pokhara, where you can indulge in a well-deserved break by the serene lakeside. This already fascinating trek will be even more enjoyable with our qualified, experienced, and knowledgeable team who will keep your safety-checked while you get wander struck throughout the trek.

We also offer a wide range of packages for trekking in Nepal, including an Annapurna short trek, if you are looking for a similar trip but don’t have the time to complete this one.

Annapurna Base Camp and Pokhara

I had the best adventure ever together with my friends doing the Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

From the moment the manager from My Everest Trip picked us up in the airport we were so excited about Nepal and our trek. We had a few days in Kathmandu before our trek and Puru was very helpful making sure the taxi drivers would not cheat us, showing us good places to eat and shop and helped with everything we needed. Before the trek he made sure we had very good briefing and we were very surprised to hear he would guide the tour himself together with his assistant guide Ratna.

The trek was hard work and great fun. All the staff joining in on the trek was passionate about their work. Some of the porters did not speak much English, but we communicated the best we could and laughed a lot because one of my friends is a bit of an actor and always tried to act what she wanted to tell them. Puru was during the whole trek present and kind, not only to us but to everybody we meet, One day we walked with a group from another company and Puru noticed that one of the girls was struggling a bit and without a word he just took her backpack so she could walk more free.

There is no doubt in my mind that the people at My Everest Trip leaded by Puru represent the modern Nepal with deep roots in tradition, culture and humility. They are modest people with great knowledge of their country

After the trek we had plans to stay a few days on our own in Pokhara just to relax and do paragliding.  Before Puru went back to Kathmandu he arranged for a nice hotel and our bus ticket back to Kathmandu where he would meet us and go for dinner together.

We are very thankful for the personal service we received, we could not have wished for anything more, except maybe for more time in Nepal, so I think we need to go back and meet all the good and warm hearted people again.

I give you my warmest recommendation.

Top Agency in Nepal

My Everest trip is a top professional and highly valued Trekking agency. Due to my work as a teacher on a Danish “Højskole”, I go every second year to Nepal for trekking. I started to work with My Everest Trip 6 years ago and I appreciate the hard work they put in making our stay in Nepal pleasant.

I did the Annapurna Base Camp trek twice with different groups of students both times with the guide Yam, who always does a great job connecting with the young people, leading the way and spread happiness when they struggle on the trails.

Many years of experience and good management places this agency among the top of trekking agencies in Nepal and I will continue working with this agency in the years to come.

ABC Trek

I highly value the service offered to me by the staff at My Everest Trip. The agency and the Annapurna Base Camp trek was recommended to me by friends and I surely understand why. All members of the team are responsible and polite people.

I always travel alone with the purpose of meeting new friends, so I specifically asked for a fixed departure where I would be grouped up with other people.

The group was led by Ratna, who is an experienced guide in the Annapurna region.  This shows in the way he manages everything. Any concern I might have before starting the trek was blown away the minute I meet the guide and the porters. I see how well they are treated by the manager and they were very happy and just as excited to go as I was. After a few days I actually ended up spending the evenings playing cards with the porters which was great fun.

The days in these beautiful surroundings passed so quickly and I was really sad when I had to say goodbye to all my new friends.

I hope I will return to Nepal one day and meet all my new friends again.

4 weeks in Nepal

I had the privilege to spend 4 weeks in Nepal in the autumn 2018. I wanted to do a long trek mixed with relaxation and cultural experiences. My aim was to get out of Kathmandu as quickly as possible after my arrival and start with the trek. Puru put up a very good schedule for me.

The day after my arrival in Kathmandu we took off for Pokhara and on day 3 my trek started. This was very good option for me as I needed some peace in mind, and this trek and the staff that followed me did a fantastic job giving me just that.

After the trek I spend a few days in Pokhara visiting beautiful sights and just enjoying life. Then I went by bus to Chitwan where Puru had booked a room at a very nice resort and arranged for activities like jungle safari and bird watching.

After some quiet days in Chitwan I was ready to face Kathmandu and spend a few days here visiting all the must sees here and do some shopping in Thamel
Puru is not only an expert in putting up trips, he is also an expert in reading his clients and what they need. Customizing this journey down to every little detail like bus tickets was just what I needed and I left Nepal feeling like a new person.
I cannot thank Puru and all his employees enough and I will return one day.

Super Annapurna Trek

I understand why this trek is one of the most popular treks in Nepal and why My Everest Trip is so highly valued by their clients. I had the pleasure to do this trek with the guide Krishna and he did a fantastic job.

All aspects of the trek was very good taken care of by Puru and I could just enjoy every moment of my walk. If I faced an obstacle on the way, Krishna would help me to overcome it in a nice and polite way. This trek has long daily walks, but in good company with nice people it’s not a problem.

I would love to do another trek with all my new friends at My Everest Trip in the future, and I recommend the company to other trekkers, who wants good value at reasonable cost

Best trekking in Nepal

Best trip in Nepal. Puru is the best guide you could wish. I went to Nepal alone to do a trek trip and I went to Anapurna with Puru. I was a little scared about the trip but when I knew Puru everything goes relaxed.
Really best trekking with the best guide.
Absolutely recommended!

Different layers and attractions

I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends Nepal is an incredible country with many different layers and attractions. It’s no wonder this country that’s tucked away in the mountains attracts so many different kinds of people: hippies in hemp clothing with dreadlocks and ukulele strapped to their hips, old retiree’s looking for adventure in their moonlight years, adrenaline junkies looking to challenge their own selves and conquer some of the world’s most enticing and deadly peaks. Regardless of what sort of person you are when you arrive here, this place will change you! I’ve heard it been said that you do not go to Nepal for a vacation, you go for an adventure. Any adventurer will tell you that if you’re setting out on an adventure that’s going to be physically demanding and where you’ll know it will be pushing you to limits you hadn’t come close to yet, it’s important to have a plan and understand what you’re getting involved with. That, my dear reader, is where my good friend comes to your rescue. Puru is a guide who I met during my first Nepal trek as we climbed up to Poon Hill and then up to Annapurna Base Camp. He was guiding for an middle-aged Chinese woman and our group of three finished our first day off at their heels talking about the trek and our hopes for the weather. He was very kind and patient with us right from the beginning as the girls and I asked him various questions regarding what in the hell we were getting ourselves into. Throughout the next week our two groups were always around each other. Sometimes we stayed in the same lodges of the same towns, other days we would catch each other on the trails and stop for water breaks. This was all very nice and kind and Puru was extremely knowledgeable about the mountains and was willing to help us out with whatever questions we had (while still having the self-confidence to laugh if we were asking stupid, redundant questions and would tell us so). It wasn’t until the end of our trek until I realized what a fantastic man Puru really is, what sets him aside from the several other guides I had already met. When we were all at the top of Annapurna Base Camp we were caught in a heavy snowstorm with a mean wind. There was a group of us close to 10 people at the top and we were all outside laughing and screaming into the wind that threatened our descent. I wrote about this situation in one of my previous blogs, but essentially Puru had taken me aside and knowing that I was familiar with copious amounts of snow and being in the mountains, told me that it was up to the two of us to get the rest of the group down safely. The snowstorm had completely erased the trail that we had used the day before so we would have to create our own new path down the mountain through the avalanche zone. Puru fearlessly lead the way through uncharted territory with enough confidence to make the entire group, including myself, feel just as confident as he. One of our group slipped from the edge of our path and began falling down but Puru instantly jumped from the ledge and caught her from falling too far down the mountain face, myself hot on his heels. We weren’t even part of his group, just a crew of tourists who he had taken under his wing to make sure that we would enjoy our time and make it through safely. I contacted Puru once we had gotten back to Kathmandu and asked him for some advice on planning my hike up to Everest Base Camp. With a great smile and a cup of tea, he welcomed me into his office in the heart of Kathmandu and helped me plan everything I needed to for this next adventure of mine. Puru and his team have trekked through all of the areas in Nepal and are obvious experts. He helped me customize my own itinerary and helped me arrange everything from the flights down to what sort of clothing and snacks we should bring. As if that wasn’t enough, after we had booked flights he was able to change our flight dates multiple times for us – free of charge. He was even able to arrange for my friend and I to take a helicopter up into the mountains without additional cost – a very rare thing I’m told! Puru was not just a man who is looking to expand his business, but a man who genuinely wants to help you have the best time possible in his beautiful country. His company can help arrange any treks you are interested in doing. He is an incredible guide who is able to take the fittest of the fit and the frailest of the frail up these mountains. But most importantly, he is an incredible human being with a kind heart. Over the few weeks Puru and I came to know each other, I’m honored to be able to call him a brother. If you ever go to Nepal and find yourself yearning for adventure, look no further than Puru at My Everest Trip for all the help you could ever need. Check out his website for information on how to get a hold of him and what sort of services he provides to family. https://www.myeveresttrip.com.
