There must be something with the Himalayan air that keeps individuals yearning for additional, at any rate for me. Scarcely 365 days subsequent to going up against the Everest Base Camp trek, I'm at the end of the day in Nepal, this opportunity to trek to the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC).

This nation is home to eight of the world's 10 most astounding pinnacles. Be that as it may, in spite of the motion picture Everest, with its pictures of inconceivably high, cold trails and bone-chilling temperatures, one needn't bother with super wellness to trek in Nepal.

For example, any climber with normal wellness can handle the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) trek where you are served a devour of emotional mountain landscape and customary culture in a direct trek. What's more, you can do everything without smoldering a gigantic gap in your pocket.

The ABC trek (otherwise called the Annapurna Sanctuary trek) is exceedingly famous, in light of its accommodation and simple openness. Following a seven-hour transport ride from Kathmandu, our group of five touch base in Pokhara, an unwinding town close to a lake.

This is a decent place to begin and end a trek as it has numerous guesthouses, eateries, trekking gear shops and simple transportation to trailheads. Turning upward from anyplace around the local area, we can see the Annapurna mountains towering out there - a mystery to the glory ahead.

With stomachs fulfilled from the last pre-trek tasty supper, we are raced off on a 45-minute drive to the trailhead at Birethanti town (1,050m). This is the second time we are with trekking aide (and now individual companion) Kalu who made our past Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek a really noteworthy one.

It's been over a year after the overwhelming seismic tremor that hit Nepal, and the nation is gradually yet most likely recuperating and modifying. The general population here need traveler pay now like never before.

It should be possible in the mid year, storm months too, yet make certain to get ready for the rain. You can likewise do this trek in winter, yet best to ask with one of our neighborhood specialists if all the important teahouses will be open as of now. Torrential slides can likewise be a hazard amid the winter months, so it's critical to trek with an educated guide who knows about the conditions.
