About Annapurna Base Camp Trek 7 Days

Annapurna Base Camp trek 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 taking you to the foot of the 10th highest mountain in the world. Starting from Pokhara makes this trip cost-effective and each step leads to the photographic beauty of villages, rhododendron forests, rivers, and waterfalls. Views of mountains that welcomes 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 isolated area for several days possible. Staying with locals is also a great opportunity to learn about the isolated and preserved culture of Gurung and Magar community.

Walking inside the Annapurna Conservation Area also means a possible encounter with rare wild animals like snow leopard and musk deer. It is said that the Annapurna region is so diverse in flora, fauna, and geography that it can represent the whole 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 trek disappear. The chirping of birds and sounds of river and waterfalls also keeps you motivated along the trek. 7 days Annapurna Base Camp trek 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. 

This trek itinerary is designed to take you to not only to Annapurna Base Camp but also to Machhapuchhre Base Camp which gives mesmerizing views of mountains like Machhapuchhre, Lumjung, Annapurna I, II, and III. 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 to dive into the hot spring in Jhinu Danda surrounded by the outstanding Himalayas and natural beauty.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek 7 Days Reviews

Rated 5/5 based on 2 reviews

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. 

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!
