About Annapurna Base Camp Trek 7 Days

Annapurna Base Camp Trek in 7 days is the best deal for anyone wanting to complete their Annapurna Base Camp Trek in the shortest way possible. This is one of the most famous treks in the Himalayas, taking you to the foot of the 10th highest mountain in the world. Starting from Pokhara makes this trip cost-effective. Each step leads to the photogenic beauty of villages, rhododendron forests, rivers, and waterfalls. Views of mountains that welcome you since the beginning of the trek seem to get bigger and clearer moving further. Tea houses run by local people make staying in this rural and remote area comfortable. Staying with locals is also a great opportunity to learn about the isolated and preserved culture of the Gurung and Magar community.

Hiking inside the Annapurna Conservation Area also means a possible encounter with rare wild animals like the snow leopard, musk deer, and many more species. It is said that the Annapurna region is so diverse in flora, fauna, and geography that it can represent the whole of Nepal. Waking up in the lap of the Himalayas to beautiful sunrises over mountains and ending your day with golden sunsets is what makes the fatigue of trekking disappear. The the cool breeze, chirping birds, and sound of flowing waterfalls also keeps you motivated along the trek. 

Reaching the destination and spending the night at the Base Camp away from light pollution also gives you the chance to stargaze millions of stars in the Milky Way galaxy. Another amazing thing you can do is hop into the hot spring in Jhinu Danda surrounded by the lush forests and the Himalayas.

Weather and temperature of Annapurna Base Camp trek 7 days

Annapurna Base Camp Trek 7 days takes you through a variety of landscapes and therefore, you may experience a diverse range of weather conditions like any Himalayan region. Since you will be trekking in a relatively low region, you will not experience any dramatic weather shifts as you would do in places higher than 4000 meters and more.

During spring and autumn, you will not witness heavy rainfall, snowfall or very low temperatures. The daytime temperature will be mild enough to let you trek in just a shirt and a pair of shorts. 

While trekking in winter, you need to pack thermal insulation as temperatures sometimes can get low during early nights and late evenings. Summer coincides with the monsoon season, which means a lot of rainfall. The path can get slippery and you may need to trek carefully. These minor challenges just test your endurance, expand your horizons and let you feel a sense of adventure.
 

Food, Water, and Accommodation

During the trek, you will stay in the tea houses run by local people. These tea houses may not be luxurious, but they will provide you with the basic accommodation service. You can expect to have food items such as dal bhat, fried rice, eggs, vegetables, pasta, noodles, soup, etc. You will likely get the opportunity to taste some traditional local food items made by Gurung and Magar people. For drinking water, you need to either fill your water bottles with boiled water in tea houses or use water purification pills.


Difficulty of Annapurna Base Camp Trek 7 day

Our Annapurna Base Camp Trek 7 day route takes you to only one station at an altitude higher than 3000 meters which means a lower risk of altitude sickness and the temperature is also not so extreme. But, having to walk an average distance of 40 meters daily, uphill for 7 days makes the difficulty of this trek moderate. It also depends on the time of your trek. Trekking in pleasant weather without slippery trails and extreme cold can make it relatively easy.

Customer Reviews

  • Annapurna Base Camp 2018

    - Klemen Zupančič, Slovenia

    I think this year has become one of the best year of my life. I graduated this year, came to Nepal with my friends and had an amazing time. this was also the first time I travelled out of my country. We chose Sublime Trails because my brother had already gone trekking with them and he said they are the best. I can't argue. They took care of all our requirements, told us what to do and what to avoid just for our good, took us to amazing places to get outstanding views, let us talk with the local people and were always there for us. One of my friends was vegan and they made sure she had nice meals even without meat and dairy. Everything went smoothly even though it was pretty tough for us during some days, I don't regret a thing. 

  • ABC trek- a 2nd sublime experience

    - Xuefen Tay, Singapore

    My first trek with Ram was 2 years ago for Helambu. Unforgettable. This time, 4 of us from the last trek plus 3 new friends joined the Annapurna Base Camp trek for magnificent views and great company.
    I was the slowest of the group, and Ram accompanied me throughout and made sure we were all properly cared for. We basically laughed our way from the start to the end of the trek with jokes, songs and cultural exchanges.
    Ram was also very considerate and tweaked the itinerary (with our agreement) when he felt we could finish the trek one day earlier than planned. That gave us an additional day to tour Pokhara before we returned home.
    Our assistant guide Suman, porters Niraj, Kiran and Hari were also fantastic. We had so much fun together, I didn't want it to end.
    We are definitely going on another trek with them again. Dhanyabad!
