Diffculties and Safety

Trekking to Annapurna Base Camp is not an easy thing with lots of uphill and downhill. Average fitness is required not to be in the pain make sure you have enough walking experience to enjoy the trek. Most of the days include 4-7 hours walking. Altitude can be the problem too so  drinking lots of fluids and going slowly is important to avoid altitude sickness. Your safety is of our major concern. Your Trekking guide has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the itinerary if it is deemed necessary due to safety concerns.  Since this adventure entails travelling in remote mountainous regions, we cannot guarantee that we will not deviate from it. The Guide will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but please be prepared to be flexible if required.

From December to February the temperature is very cold but visibility is still good. With fewer tourists on the trails, this can be the preferred time to visit. However, the cold can make high altitude treks more strenuous than normal. Some treks will be closed due to snow. March to May is the second most popular time to visit. The weather is warmer and the visibility is still good, though not as crystal clear as between October to November. Nepal's flowers, however, come alive at this time of year.
