Useful Info

Best Time to Visit

The best time to embark on the Annapurna Base Camp trek is during the fall season (September to November), which offers optimal weather conditions and excellent trekking opportunities.

Alternatively, the spring season (March to May) is another favorable time to undertake the Annapurna Base Camp trek. During this time, the weather is generally pleasant, and the blooming rhododendron forests add a vibrant touch to the landscape.
Both seasons provide unforgettable moments and incredible vistas, so choosing between fall and spring largely depends on your personal preferences.

How High is Annapurna Base Camp?

At the base camp, the Annapurna Base Camp Trek reaches a maximum altitude of 4,130 metres (13,550 ft). This picturesque resort in the Annapurna mountain range provides panoramic vistas of towering peaks as well as a tranquil retreat surrounded by natural beauty.

Acclimatization and understanding of potential altitude-related problems are required for this altitude trek. To guarantee a safe and happy trekking experience, pace yourself, stay hydrated, and listen to your body.

Difficulty Level

For hikers with a reasonable level of experience as well as fitness, the Annapurna Base Camp can be rated as a moderate level of difficulty but for people that have never trekked, Annapurna Base Camp is a relatively hard trek.

It is vital to know that Himalayan Friendly does not include alcoholic beverages in our itinerary, such as beer, wine, or spirits. While you can buy drinks at the tea houses along the trail, we recommend that you drink responsibly owing to the potential effects of altitude and physical activity.

Drinking Water in Anapurnna Base Camp Trek

Bottled water can be purchased at most tea houses and shops along the route. Because of the altitude it is recommended you drink in the region of 3-4 liters per day, although this can include, tea and soup. During Annapurna Sanctuary trek (ABC), you don’t find a bottle mineral water. Instead, you have to refill safe drinking water which is available in each and every teahouse around Annapurna region. Safe drinking water is 100% safe to drink. Safe Drinking water is maintained by a local committee which mainly looks after the cleanliness of the water. It will be better to have one spare of an empty bottle while refilling the water. You can also bring water purifying tablets for safe drinking water which helps to save the cost.
