As we climb through ancient oak and rhododendron forest, across sparkling streams and past waterfalls, the world of snow and ice starts to unfold above us. This combination of pretty villages and terraced fields of millet and rice, coupled by the majestic splendor of Machhapuchare (6,993m) which is renowned by the name of fishtail, Annapurna (8091m) and Hiunchuli (6,441m) make this an extremely rewarding trek.

  • The endless steps down from Chhomrong.
  • The walk between Machhapuchhare Base Camp and Annapurna Base Camp.
  • The view of the South Face and Glacier of Annapurna from Annapurna Base Camp.

How long is the trek?

The length of the trail depends on where you start and end your trek, therefore it can be anything between 160-230km. It can be done in as few as 16 days, or as many as 21 days, if doing side trips. Usually it takes either 15 or 16 days to do the shorter version, and 18-19 for the full route.

Do I need any permits?

Yes. You will need the Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP) which is $33 and Trekker’s Information Management System Card (TIMS card), which are $20 each for individual trekkers. Both can be obtained at the Adventure Connexion (AC) in Kathmandu. You will need your scan passport copy and passport sized pictures with you as well.

What is the lodging like?

The ACT is a teahouse trek, which means there are guesthouses in almost every village. Some are better than others, but generally rooms are basic and come with shared bathrooms. Blankets are provided but it’s a good idea to bring your own sleeping bag as it gets chilly in the higher levels and there are no heating systems inside the buildings. Usually you will have to dine at your lodge in order to get a room. Some places may offer hot gas showers for an additional fee, so take advantage of that while you can because above Manang you won’t get the chance to shower at all until you reach Muktinath, on the other side of the pass.

Is there are risk of getting altitude sickness?

There is a risk since you will be hiking above 3000m. Different people react to altitude in different ways, no matter their fitness level or experience in the mountains. That’s why you should learn and understand what altitude sickness is and what the symptoms are beforehand. You can ask your local travel medicine specialist, search online or attend one of the lectures organized in Kathmandu. There’s also an option to attend the high altitude sickness lecture in Manang organized by the Himalayan Rescue Association.

When is the best time to go?

The best weather for trekking in the Annapurna region is during autumn (September to November) and spring (March-May). The skies are clear then and you will get a chance to enjoy some outstanding views of the Annapurnas and Dhaulagiri peaks. Keep in mind that even though it is not monsoon season anymore it will be much warmer and humid in the lower regions (jungle) and you still may encounter an unexpected shower or two. It will also be much cooler above 3500m. Even though it’s not technically winter you will need warm clothes and a down jacket.
