Annapurna base camp trek 7 days (ABC Trek 7 days) best time is Autumn and Spring seasons. During these 2 seasons, the Annapurna base camp trek experience is very unique and marvellous because trekkers can see the astonishing views of the Himalayas in the very appropriate weather. Let’s look here at what the Annapurna base camp trek looks like in particular seasons.
The Autumn season (October and November) is the best time to do the trekking activities in Nepal. Trekking like Annapurna base camp can be done in this season very nicely. The post-monsoon season days are very cristal clear and remain very excellent all the day, with blue sky and clear visibility. The temperatures are neither hot nor cold and at this time rainfall is unlikely to happen so it is the best time to explore the mighty Himalayas and the trails to the Himalayas.
The Spring season (March, April and May) is the second-best season in Nepal for the trekking holidays in Nepal. Trek-like Annapurna base camp can be done without most of the natural obstacles. Stunning weather with sun, clear sky, good temperatures and clear visibility allows hikers to enjoy the Annapurna base camp trek very much. The summer days are warmer so it is a very appropriate time to do the expeditions on Mt Everest and other high mountains. In the lower valley, you can see the rhododendron forest with tons of rhododendron flowers which makes the hike, even more, nicer than normal time.
The monsoon season starts on June 10 and lasts till September 15 around. It is considered one of the bad seasons for trekking in the Himalayas because It rains a lot, the sky is cloudy, very less chance to see the mountain. Leeches, floods and landslides are common on the trekking trails. This is not a good time to do the Annapurna circuit trek but if you are lucky you can see the mountains this time as well.
These months, generally it’s cold months of the year. Most of the tourist doesn’t do any adventure activities. Doing trek this month is very difficult because of the cold environment snowfall rainfall and sometimes hell-storm as well. The sky is cloudy So you cannot see the beautiful view. For the comprehensive information go to Annapurna circuit trek best time
There are many places from where you can start the Annapurna base camp trek / ABC Trek 7 days. Places like Kande, Birethanti to Poon Hill, and Ghandruk are the major trekking starting point for this Trek. 7 days of Annapurna base camp trek is short that is the reason you need to start this trek from Ghandruk and end there as well.
The 7 days Annapurna base camp hike is actual 5 days hike so you need to drive to Kiumi to accomplish this in 5 days. Kiumi is 1.5 hours ahead of the Jhinu and 1 hour from Ghandruk. The jeep will take you there and you can start your trek from there so in 1 day you can reach Lower Sinuwa. If you start the ABC trek 7 days here you won’t see the stunning view of the Annapurna Himalayan Range from Poon Hill because it lies on the other side of the Annapurna region. If you want to see the poon hill as well then you need to have 3-4 more days on your holidays.
There are many places where you can finish your Annapurna base camp trek 7 days (ABC Trek 7 days) such as Kande or Even you can go to Mardi Himal after the Annapurna base camp trek but due to the time lack, you need to finish your trip into the Kiumi as well. From Kiumi you can take the private jeep to drive to Pokhara.
Food and accommodations on the Annapurna base camp trek are quite basic. Most of the Hotels/Tea Houses have a shared bathroom. Only a few of the lodges have a room with a bath. Bed are quite comfortable with the foam mattress that is wrapped with clean bed sheets. Single blankets are also there for you but they may be insufficient due to the cold temperatures so we always recommend you have good sleeping bags. Heaving sleeping bags are always good for trekking because not only the matter of the cold but also the matter of cleanliness.
Talking about the food, they have a set menu for each village. The menu is the same in the village but only the name of the hotel is different so there are no price variations in the hotels. The menu is prepared by the village tourism management committee and every hotel must follow it. Hotels offer you most types of food like western food (Spaghetti, macaroni, pizza, burger, sandwich, spring roll, and many others) Indian types of food, and Nepali food sets (Dal Bhat) for lunch and dinner. For breakfast, they offer local bread, omelettes, hash brown potatoes, omelettes, boiled potatoes and pancakes. Tea ( many types) and coffees are also served for the tourists. Some hotels also offer the desert as well.
Permits are essential to do the Annapurna base camp trek. There are two types of permits for the Annapurna regions. The first one is Annapurna conservation area project permits and another one is TIMS permits. Since you do the Annapurna conservations the National park permits are necessary and you will get them in Kathmandu with the agency. Known as an ACCAP Permit which cost about 30$. There is a check post to check the national park permits on the trails. On the other hand, you are also required to get the TIMS Card which cost about 10$ and you get to Kathmandu by the registered agent or by yourself if you are doing the trek individually.
Annapurna base camp trek 7 days is not that difficult. Annapurna base camp is elevated at an altitude of 4130 meters. Elevations-wise, it is not that high altitude base camp so trekkers should not worry about the difficulty of the Annapurna base camp trek 7 days. The daily trekking duration is 6-8 hours because it is a short hike with pretty much more distance. Trails to Annapurna base camp is well managed as well as in some area there are many stairs for the easiness of the trekkers. Some trekking finds annoy it but they did it for the easiness of the trekkers.
generally, trekkers should not have to climb the hard climbing and walk on the icy trails very much, sometimes it may be harder because of the snowfalls. Snowfalls make the trails more icy and slippery. Apart from that, there is less chance of getting altitude mountain sickness problems. Up and downs with the bunch of stone-paved stairs are part of the Annapurna base camp hikes. The availability of the tea lodges makes the trek easier on these routes. Overall, if you are able to walk 6-8 hours in the day on the mountains terrain you can easily do the Annapurna base camp trek.
Annapurna base camp hike 7 days begins from Kathmandu. There is a tourist bus that goes to Pokhara on a daily basis but they all leave Kathmandu at the same time in the morning around 7 AM. there are different types of tourist buses some of them are quite luxurious than others. All reach Pokhara at the same time. Tourists can see the stunning view of the countryside during the drive but now the road widening process is going on which may take some more time than usual but it is worth doing the overland drive to Pokhara.
There are other alternatives to the tourist bus of the flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara. The flight takes you to Pokhara in just half-hour and you can see the stunning view of the Himalayas on your flight. Flight to Pokhara from Kathmandu is a convenient as well as a more relaxing option.
Formally the trek starts from today and begins with the drive to Kiumi from Pokhara. Kiumi is the last station that the jeep goes from Pokhara. We take the Jeep from Pokhara to Kiumi which takes around 3 hours time. The jeep rides are very enjoyable with the stunning Himalayan scenery and the green hills. Road to Kiumi is not that good at last but at the start, it is quite ok. There is a tourist check-post at Birethanti where permits are check-in to enter the trekking of the Annapurna base camp. When we arrive at the Kiumi we can see the stunning view of Mt Fishtail, Annapurna south 7219 Meters, Himchuli 6400 Meters and Landruk villages. We start the trek from kiumi which goes to the north following the Modi River Upstream and you will see the longest suspension bridge in the Annapurna Region. Just crossing the bridge you will arrive at the Jhinu Village. Jhinu is a small settlement and a very good place to enjoy the natural hot spring. Hotspring is 15 minutes from the Jhinu on the Bank of the Modi River. From Jhinu the trek goes accent climbing the stairs to Chomrong which takes around 2 hours. Chomrong offers the best view of the Annapurna Himalayan ranges and it is biggest Gurung villages on the Annapurna base camp trails. Here you can see the Gurung cultures, traditions and lifestyles and how they farm. Going down from Chomrong we cross another bridge and climb accent to the Lower Sinuwa. The lower Sinuwa is the destination for today.
It is the second day of the Annapurna base camp trek 7 days (ABC Trek 7 days). The hike starts with breakfast at Lower Sinuwa. We follow the trails and move towards the Upper Sinuwa. The trail goes slowly accent till the Upper Sinuwa. Upper Sinuwa is the place from where you can see the perfect view of Mt Fishtail 6,993 Meters. Now the trail goes through the dense forests filled with rhododendron, oak and bamboo bushes. It takes 3 hours to arrive at the Bamboo village. Bamboo is the settlement with 6/7 tea houses and all of them are hotels. From Bamboo, the trails go ahead following the Modi River Upstream through the forests. The trails now become wetter because of the forests and water sources along the trails. Dovan and Upper Dovan are the two places where you can agave lunch to go to Deurali. There is a small temple before the Himalayas with spectacular waterfalls on the opposite side of the trails. The tress plants become smaller and smaller as you go higher. Waling on the zig-zag climbing you will reach the Hincu Cave. Hincu cave offers the first view of the Deurali as you cross some more bridges you will reach the Deurali. Deurali is just on the bottom of the Himchuli with big rocks on both sides of the valley.
The final day of the accent trek to the Annapurna base camp starts from the Durali at 3200 Meters. This part of the trek is dangerous sometimes especially in winter when there is a lot of snow on the Himchuli. Trekkers have trails just on the bottom of the Himchuli Mountains and if there is a thick level of snow on the mountains then it falls and it had already caused many accidents. Trekkers must be very aware of these parts hiking. There are 3-4 places which are very dangerous. As you move ahead from Deurail the trails follow the stream of the Modi River and as it reaches Bagar the trails are pretty much smooth and flat before reaching the Mchhapurcha base camp again it goes accent. When you arrive at Machhapurche base camp, you will see a glimpse of Mt Fishtail, Gangapurna, Annapurna South, Himchuli and Annapurna frank. Now, the trails are pretty tough as you gain the altitude it follows the bottom of the glacier to reach the Annapurna base camp 4130 Meters.
This is the most spectacular day of the trek because you will see the astonishing view of Mt Annapurna and other mountains in the panoramic ranges. Mountains like Annapurna south, Himchuli, Annapurna Frank, tent peak, Annapurna and Mt Fishtails are the mountains that you would see from the Annapurna base camp. There is a big glacier which comes from the ice of Mt Annapurna and it stretches down to the corner of the Machhapurche Base camp. This is another interesting thing that you can see and listen to as well. The sunrise over the Mt Annapurna range is something that trekkers may not have seen before. After spending quality time on the Annapurna base camp you will descend down to the Bamboo through the same route by following the stream of the Modi River. It takes about a whole day to arrive at Bamboo.
The last day of the trek starts with the accent from the bamboo to the forest between bamboo and Upper Sinuwa. The trails go through the forest till the Upper Sinuwa and from there it descends down to the base of the Chomrong. From Chomrong the trails are accents till the end of the Chomrong villages and from there you will go descents down to the Jhinu. If you want to enjoy the Hot Spring then our guide will take you to the bank of the Modi River where there is a Hot Spring. You can spend some time here then we move to Jhinu and have lunch and in the evening we can move to Kimi from here you can take the Jeep to go to Pokhara. It takes about 3 hours to reach the Pokhara.
I booked a 10-day trek around the Annapurna region with Nepal Trek Hub. From the beginning of Communication, I was asking so many questions regarding Annapurna Trek. Every time I got my answer so quickly. Shreeram was the best man to solve each and every query regarding this Annapurna Trek. I had so much information regarding the Annapurna Trekking so I was well prepared regarding types of equipment and gear. On arrival, Shreeram Pick Up me from the airport. We had a nice conversation in hotel regarding my trip. My Guide Rajesh was there to meet me and afterwards, rajesh took care of everything. He was hero of my trip not only as a guide but also as a friend. As I am alone I was frightened that I could be board but that thing did not happen to me as Rajesh was so funny
Being single it is hard to get the accommodation in Annapurna as I understood myself, but my guide managed me super accommodation everyday. We were doing Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek with Annapurna Base Camp. As my guide was Encyclopedia, I understood many things regarding Nepal such as how Nepal formed. What is its history? What are the culture and ethnicity? Language, politics, rural life and many other things that other travellers do not care about.
I was so lucky in terms of weather because from the start of my trek to end, it was crystal clear weather so I saw many mountains, terrains and landscapes. It was also good to see the rhododendron flowers blooming in the forest. I enjoyed the mesmerizing view of the Forest and mountains.
I saw Mt.Annapurna, Mt Dhaulagiri, Mt. Nilgiri, Fishtail mountain and many other beautiful peaks around the region. It was quite narrow valley but the scenery was amazing itself plus I got more impression that the local porters were carrying 60-70 kg easily in baskets to the hotel’s supplies. And the more interesting thing is they were in flip-flops.
Overall, my experience with Nepal Trek Hub was super. They were kind and helpful as well as very professional in their profession. They are about the client’s need and what they want. They were also very happy to customize the trip even in office or in Trip as well. I can recommend to anyone who is going to Nepal for any trip.

Trekkers need to trek around 6-8 hours during this trek.
