Annapurna Base Camp 10 Days

Annapurna Base Camp Trek 10 Days is an amazing opportunity for those who want to complete this amazing trek without going too slow or rushing it. We have an Annapurna Base Camp 7-day package and an Annapurna Base Camp 14-day package, so this is the happy medium. It takes just 10 days roundtrip from Kathmandu. Our itinerary is designed to take you to the heart of Annapurna Sanctuary providing fabulous views of the mountains of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Range.

The route this trek takes is the shortest possible one to let you explore everything in the fastest possible way. The landscapes you get to view during these 10 days are amazing, as you get panoramic views of peaks like Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Himchuli, Manaslu, and Machhapuchhre while walking past beautiful rhododendron, bamboo, and oak forests with a few settlements in between.

One of the memorable spots during this trek is a hot spring known as Jhinu where you can dive and relieve your fatigue. The steaming waters feel especially good on your sore muscles. Annapurna region is also home to different species of birds and animals and is covered in an alpine forest. Reaching Annapurna Base Camp is a wonderful experience to have and the trail will never cease to amaze you.

Route to Annapurna Base Camp 10 Days

Leaving Kathmandu, the route to Annapurna Base Camp takes you to Pokhara by a flight or a ride. After arriving in Pokhara, a bus ride to Kyumi marks the start of your trek as you hike up to Chhomrong. The next day, you will head towards a village named Himalaya. The trail finally takes you to Annapurna Base Camp on the 5th day via Machhapuchhre Base Camp. While returning from Annapurna Base Camp, you will head towards Bamboo. The next day, you dive into the hot spring near Jhinu Danda, known as Jhinu Hot Spring. After leaving Jhinu, you will trek to Nayapul and drive to Pokhara and return to Kathmandu on the 9th day.

Annapurna Base Camp 10 Days Difficulty

Annapurna Base Camp 10 days trek is a moderate grade trip with most stops with an altitude under 3000 meters. Just for two days, you will remain at a higher elevation than that. During this trek, however, you will walk an average of 5-6 hours a day for 10 days. Climbing the 3000 steps to the village of Ulleri can get a bit physically demanding. Trekking in peak seasons, you will not encounter any dramatic weather shifts. Any exercise or preparation though not strictly required can help you a lot.

Food and Accommodation During the Annapurna Base Camp 10 Days

Food and accommodation during this trek are minimalistic since the areas falling in the trekking route are far from modern. You will stay at teahouses that provide simple and clean services. Heaters are only found in the dining halls and food like pasta, noodles, dal bhat, potatoes, vegetables, cereals, eggs, rice, soup, etc. are served. You may get private single, double, triple rooms, or even rooms shared with more people depending on the season. While in Kathmandu and Pokhara, you will stay at a 3-star hotel providing breakfast. In the city, lunch and dinner are not included, but that allows you to explore different restaurants with various cuisines depending on what you like.

    Wholesome Annapurna Trip with Sublime Trails and my guide Mr. Ajit

    I want to express my gratitude to Mr. Ram Khadka from Sublime Trails for his effort in making this trip the best of my life. I was worried about altitude sickness, but the guide took care of me all the time. He was a very good person and a guide.

    The food was good. Also, the ethnic foods were tasty at Ghandruk. The sunset and sunrise were also at their best. The trip was good and also Mr. Ram gave me a complementary Kathmandu tour. The best company. Thanks for being my tour partner. Can’t wait to be in Nepal anytime soon.

    My Annapurna Base Camp trek experience with Sublime Trails

    I want to mention that the good food, decent accommodation and Pokhara Kathmandu flight arranged by Sublime Trails were amazing. The guides, porters were the best. Mr. Ram had arranged our trip permits long before we came to Nepal. It was a pleasant experience being on the tour with them. A true professional organisation of the trip. Thank you for the wonderful experience. Recommended company for tours in Nepal.
