                            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 expenses if you face some unfortunate happenings and you have to be rescued, medically assisted during the trip, or if your belongings have been lost or stolen.

                            Solo Travellers

                            We have arranged for a single traveler to pay for a single trip only. He has to share the accommodation with other people of the same sex though he can also join the other groups.

                            Foods and Accommodations

                            All meals will be provided during the trek while only breakfast will be available in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

                            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

                            Since mountain trekking takes you to remote places over high altitudes, the leader should have a piece of significant knowledge in the field so that he can wonderfully and safely lead you there clearing any obstacles on the way. 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.
                            Our porters are always fully equipped with the gears they need and as per the company policy, they are always insured and completely looked after. They are our backbone. We allow a maximum weight of 25kg to be carried by one porter. We make sure that they are well-paid and well-treated.

                            Best Time to Travel

                            The best time for trekking to the Annapurna base camp trek is Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) because the weather is warm and moderate while the view and visibility are the best. The winter is also somehow fine but the monsoon is the less frequented time because of the occasional heavy rain and when the roads might be troublesome.

                              An Unforgettable Himalayan Adventure

                              The Annapurna Base Camp trek via Poon Hill left me in awe of the Himalayas' grandeur. The panoramic vistas from Poon Hill at sunrise painted a picture-perfect start to each day. The trek through lush forests, quaint villages, and terraced fields provided a glimpse into the rich culture of the region. Reaching the base camp was a triumphant moment, surrounded by towering peaks and serene alpine landscapes. A truly unforgettable journey!!
