Trekking to Annapurna Base Camp and hike to Poonhill viewpoint is one of most favorite things to do. I have myself trekked to Annapurna base camp and Poon hill over 30 times taking the foreigner group. And experience that I always prefer when there are going to be fewer people on the trail.
The Annapurna region has it all, sheer beauty, dramatic massive mountains, friendly people, adventure trails and an experience that will stay with you forever. The exciting expansive views will leave you mesmerized. Standing at the base camp of the world’s tallest mountain and trekking up to the famous and classic view of Mount Annapurna family including Fish Tail is truly breathtaking.
There are two specific trekking seasons. The best months to trek to Annapurna base camp are pre-monsoon (February, March, April and May) and post-monsoon (late September, October, November and December). It is possible to make this iconic journey in February and September but we prefer the above for our treks into Annapurna base camp. My personal favorites are March, April, Mai, late October, November, and December.
You can trek to Annapurna Base Camp in January and February but it will be very freezing higher up (-10C/-14F to – 15C/-5F) and it can dump snow on the trail at any time of year. If you are planning on trekking to Annapurna Base Camp in these months, you are definitely going to need more time for weather delays. Weather conditions can be more challenging in these winter months.
When planning your trek into the Annapurna region you need to consider the months listed above. Do you want to be there when base camp is very busy and alive with climbers aiming for the summit? Do you want to have clearer sky’s for good photography? You need to consider this in your planning.
In addition, many people know a few about Nepal but they know much about Mount Annapurna. And trekking in the Annapurna region is the dream for everyone. This trek starts from Pokhara – a gateway to the Annapurna region. You can reach pokhara city either by bus or 25 minutes flights from Kathmandu.
Spring and Autumn are the preferred time to trek to the Annapurna region. During this time, you can see the trail is very busy with trekkers caravan. Sometimes difficult to get cozy rooms. To avoid all these, and walk in the complete wilderness, why not trek in December? This time when many avoid treks fearing the cold. But trust us! You will not regret on decision.
Best time of the year to trek Annapurna Base Camp is either on Spring (March to May) or Autumn (October to December) stays clear skies. Moreover, there are many other popular trek routes connecting with abc.
Annapurna base camp treks even more scenic and joyful in the spring season as the whole forest along the trail turns red, pink and white with rhododendron flowers. Amazing Annapurna trek can be done any time throughout the year.
Hike to annapurna base camp 12 days itinerary is compared to most walks in this region leading up to the base camp. The particular route is designed for world travelers who wish to hike to the base camp but are walking with limited time wise take a special itinerary on Annapurna Sanctuary Trek – 7 Days which would be a more appropriate choice.

The autumn months of mid-September, October and November recognize as a best sunny days and have crystal weather. It is one of the busiest for trekking holidays. The monsoon rains have cleared the sky of dust and the views often get spectacular. Landscapes are amazing and the valleys are still green and the weather is mild, so trekking tours are even more enjoyable. Spring season starting from March until the end of May also a good time to visit Nepalese mountains as the weather is great. Visiting in springtime, you can walk into the deep and colorful Rohodendrons forest where the chances to look wild animals are higher. Very good preparation for those treks is important so kindly check the trekking gears before you go.
The annapurna base camp trek difficulty in walking over the landscapes and the distance of your trek duration is normal. The total distance of Annapurna Base Camp trek is around 115 kilometers.

Answer: The abc trail, especially above Deurali Hill, stays a lot of avalanches places, so it is a less dangerous trail but walking above Bagar is completely safe. In terms of altitude acclimatization, it is safe to trek because you reach only up to 13,547 feet of Base Camp hikes spending 4-5 days above Pokhara town. However, abc hikes in winter are dangerous in terms of numerous avalanches. Book your trip with Gokyo Treks and go with a professional guide who knows the trail condition better.

Trekking alone, you can save a lot of things. Nepal is still one of the cheap travel destinations in Asia. The fewer estimation of your budget will run throughout your trek. If you trek alone/privately, you pay only for TIMS, Conservation or national park entrance permit, lodge and food.
Answer: Generally, Nepal is a safe country. However, there have been instances of petty crime. You can travel Annapurna safely without any obstacles. But going abc without a guide especially in the wintertime is dangerous in terms of avalanches and snowfall. So we highly recommend you to take at least 1 trek guide to make your trip safe.
The annapurna deaths along the annapurna basecamp are higher comparing annapurna circuit deaths/death rate. As soon as you reach Hinko cave, the most dangerous part of the Annapurna avalanche appears. In addition, as you are hiking at Bagar, another annapurna base camp avalanche spot comes where several trekkers died already.
Simply to write the Annapurna death rate is low but every year trekkers are dying on hiking of falling huge snow rock. In October 2014, at least 43 people were killed, and roughly about 176 injured, as a result of snowstorms and avalanches on and around Annapurna, including trekkers from Nepal, Israel, Slovakia, India, Poland and Canada. Between 10 and 50 people were thought likely to be missing.

Amazing Annapurna Base Camp Experience!
I am a Malaysian who did the 10-day Annapurna Base Camp trek alone with Ram as my guide. This was my first time in Nepal and I have to say that I am highly satisfied with Gokyo Treks. Ammar handled everything from the moment I landed in Kathmandu airport. I had nothing to worry about! The professionalism and hospitality were amazing!
Ram was fantastic as my guide! And my Dhal Bhat buddy! He had very funny jokes and had the local knowledge to point out the things that I would have never noticed myself. He also always went out of the way to make sure I was taken care of all the time.
I had a great time with these guys! At last, I would highly recommend Gokyo Treks to anyone looking to do a trek in Nepal. – Christopher Sien Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
My Travel made and I hiked the ABC trek through Gokyo Treks and it was a wonderful experience. We were very thankful for our guide Lila, as he took great care of us. Our experience would not have been the same without him, especially as it was during monsoon season and we had to take a few detours because of rain. Gokyo treks is a reputable and honest company, and they did everything they could to make our trip the best possible. I would highly recommend! – Caroline Schauder, Washington DC, District of Columbia
It was an amazing experience, friendly and great service mind with full of experience tour guide Ram and porter Ram. From the time of welcome, we got great services throughout the trip. Thank you Gokyo Treks for providing us a wonderful memory. – Kanjana Emawat, Bangkok, Thailand
