Best Season for 7 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek

The best season for Trekking in Nepal is referred to as Spring (March-May) and Autumn Season (September-November) through any trekking trails.

Spring Season is the beginning of the summer season. Vegetation starts to bloom and has a colorful transformation. The clouds are swept away leaving the clear bright bluish sky and mighty silver mountains with dry paths without snow and rain.

Likewise, Autumn is the beginning of winter and spreads yellow and orange colors into the green lush vegetation. The Autumn season makes mountains shine brighter and spreads clarity in the sky. These seasons are extensively preferred and loved by trekkers who make the trail busy.

During monsoon, rain pours extensively, and flora blooms to the fullest. The clouds and mountains play hide and trekkers long for the clear day and views. Whereas, the Winter season brings a clear sky and mountain view with short days, snowy paths, and the quietest village (People of higher altitude shift to a lower altitude for winter). These seasons make the trail wet, slippery, and quietest with the fewest trekkers.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is a must when you travel abroad. Therefore before you come to Nepal, please make sure you have your insurance documents with you since our insurance companies cannot insure foreign nationals. Because of the reason that they cover all the expenses if you face some unfortunate happenings and you have to be rescued or medically assisted during the trip or if your belongings are lost or stolen.

Health and Fitness Required

No previous experience is required since it's a moderate trek. But you being a healthy person, physically and mentally is very important. It is better if we prepare ourselves a few days/weeks prior to the start of the trek by jogging and running regularly since will be walking a lot of ups and downs in the hills, ridges, villages, and mountains. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions should inform us beforehand.

First Aid Kit/High Altitude Sickness

Nepal Adventure Team strongly suggests that you have your own personal first aid or medical kit. This trip takes you to some high altitudes though not much but the slow walks and regular stops between the walks will help you acclimatize to high altitude saving you from the high altitude sickness called AMS(acute mountain sickness). Gaining altitude without proper consideration of AMS is fatal.

Your Guide and Porter

We, Nepal Adventure Team can proudly say that our guides are highly qualified for the role. They are fully trained, experienced, and licensed. They have undergone a whole lot of training to make themselves useful in various situations and to make your journey a smooth and pleasant one.

    An Intense but Rewarding Trek

    The Shortest Annapurna Base Camp Trek was an intense yet incredibly rewarding experience. Despite the limited time, the trek offered breathtaking views and a real sense of adventure. The highlight was standing at the base camp, surrounded by towering peaks and feeling a true sense of achievement. Our guide was excellent, ensuring we stayed safe and informed throughout the trek. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a condensed yet fulfilling Himalayan trek.
