A journey to Annapurna base camp offers the majestic Himalayan views, unique Gurung settlement, beautiful rhododendron forest with mountain lifestyle of locals, culture and tradition of Nepal. If you looking for this amazing trek to Annapurna Base Camp for your next holidays then following tips are useful for you.

#1. Best Season to go.
We experiences major four season in Nepal throughout the year. They are summer (JUNE – AUGUST), Winter (DECEMBER – FEBRUARY), spring (MARCH TO MAY), and autumn (SEPTEMBER – MID DECEMBER). Choosing a best season for your holiday offers you more glimpse and pleasure. The best season for Annapurna base camp trekking is during spring (March – April) and autumn (October – December). Spring is offers the blooming Rhododendron as the trail is more attractive where all the trails turns into red pink and white flowers. However in autumn the skies are clear and snowcapped mountain views are amazing.

#2. Beware of Altitude sickness
While trekking above 3000 meter altitude, some people might suffer from altitude sickness. Normally altitude sickness occurs when your body do not adjust in high elevation where the oxygen level is very low. Symptoms of altitude sickness includes headache, vomiting, loss of sleep etc. If you get such Symptoms then you have immediately consult with your guide. Guides are well trained and experiences for altitude trekking and sickness problems.

How to avoid Altitude sickness?
Drink lots of waters as you can, eat your foods full each time, do not drink alcoholic beverages, can avoid the chances of sickness in Himalayas. Even though, if you feel such sickness you can use medicine like Diamox which can avoid sickness and help to go high elevation. The nest important things is when you are going up don’t skip acclimatization because slowly and proper acclimatization adjust your body in high altitude.

#3. Prepare yourself by mentally and physically
Annapurna base Camp trekking is a moderate walk through the foothill of Annapurna Massif. It is not technical climb, you do not need to have previous experience even any altitude experiences to complete the trek. However, you have to physically fit and excellent strength, conditioning and endurance to be able to reach the base camp. So, we recommended to do some walking, cycling and other physical exercise before you coming Abc trek. Normally you must capable for 5/6 hours walking each days during the trek.

With the physical fitness, mentally prepare is also important for outdoors. Because there are no star levels hotels for your comfortable. You have to adjust local tea houses with sharing Bathrooms and eat the foods which are available in tea houses menu. So you do need to be prepared yourself for these things.

#4. Pack up Right trekking gears
As we already told you Annapurna base camp is a moderate trekking in Annapurna massif. However, to make a successful trek you should have proper trekking equipment which are most important. Among trekking gears proper hiking boots, a good down Jackets, trousers are most significant. Other gears besides are warm clothes, hiking poles, sun hat, Sunglass, gloves, comfortable trousers, warm sleeping bag are also important to have a successful and pleasant trekking to ABC.

#5. Always choose a organize trek
If you are coming to Nepal first time for an adventure or you have never trekked before then we suggest to do a organize trek in Nepal. Your porter carry your all luggage except your day pack which you need for walking. A experience English speaking guide is always with you for your inconvenient and always responsible for any obstacles. Moreover a organize trek will save your time and you don’t need to take unnecessary headache for arrangements such as accommodation, vehicle, flights etc.

Are you thinking any Trip to Nepal Cost can be a daunting task. Where to start? How to budget? Where to go? What to do? What do you need to prepare? The good news is everything you need to plan your trip to Nepal is on Nepal Visitors.

Nepal’s tourism is largely centred around trekking and it does attract a fair amount of wealthy visitors as well as backpackers. As a result there are facilities to cater for them in some areas, which can provide you with some temptation to stray above $30/day. By extending your budget to $40 you can add a little bit of luxury into your trip by staying in nicer hotels and dining out at more tourist-geared restaurants from time to time. It will also give you more room to do extra trips and visit more of the best trekking trails, which typically cost $30 to enter.

How much money will you need in Nepal? NRS 3,902 ($38) is the average daily price for traveling in Nepal. The average price of food for one day is NRS 1120 ($10.60). The average price of a hotel for a couple is NP₨2,818 ($27).  These average travel prices have been collected from other travelers to help you plan your own travel budget.

However if you are looking for more organised trekking expeditions, which is highly recommended if you’re not experienced, then even this budget won’t cover for that. The Trip to Nepal Cost can be quite high for guided trips and to reach the highest points in the Himalayas, it will take many days, which clearly is going to be quite expensive.

If trekking is likely to be the main or a major focus of your trip then use these budgets for the days you won’t be trekking and find a good company for the days you will and research the costs in advance. Here are 5 of the best short treks in Nepal along with an idea of the pricing.

UNESCO protected Durbar Square is a popular spot when backpacking Nepal. A square filled with history of rulers and royalty (Durbar literally means palace). Many of the buildings around the square are actually older than the square itself; Kasthamandap is the oldest building in the valley, at three stories and made out of wood it’s a beautiful ancient sight to awe at. You can easily spend a day wandering the streets, exploring the temples, people watching and enjoying a refreshing beer on one of the rooftop cafes.

Don’t leave Kathmandu without spending some time at the Hanuman Dhoka. Nepal’s Royal palace has some incredible history; founded in the 4th to 8th centuries AD and then expanded to what it is now in the seventeenth century by the king. You can easily spend a day exploring the sprawling palace and it’s 10 courtyards. Plus it is free to enter if you have a ticket to visit Durbar Square! Sadly the palace felt the effects of the 2015 Earthquake and some areas are undergoing repairs. Don’t let this stop you from visiting, most of the palace is now accessible and restored to its previous beauty.

If your heart vibrates on the rhythm of Eastern mysticism, then the Kathmandu Pokhara Chitwan tour is the right choice for you. Through bucolic cities with populated streets, to pristine wildernesses with crystal clear lakes and vibrant wildlife, to awe-inspiring temples and an enviable history, these places have it all.

Kathmandu
Your first stop will be Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal, a real metropolis that stands at its historic, cultural and religious centre. The first thing you can do here is taking a guided tour of the city, there are plenty of sites to explore, including old palaces and Buddhist and Hindu temples. These places of worship are spectacular, and you’ll get the chance to understand a new culture.

There’s also the chance to take part in a lesson on how to make your own scarf, this is a traditional activity here. A DIY hiking backpack guide would also be really helpful since you’re probably going to do quite a bit of walking here. This would be great for snack storing, as you can also go on a food tour. The Nepalese cuisine is extremely aromatic and rather different from Western cuisine, so you’ll see the best hidden locations with the most delicious treats.

There are also plenty of UNESCO World Heritage Sites that weave their way out of a rich historical and cultural past. One of these is the Basantapur Durbar Square that’s famous for its traditional architecture. Besides, you can get a glimpse into the past of the Nepalese monarchy here and learn more about it.

The Boudhanath is another UNESCO Heritage Site since it has roots that stretch over into Antiquity. This is now a place for spiritual meditation, and it’s also one of the last remaining Stupas, but it was a Tibetan trade route for millennia.

And all these sites can easily be visited either by foot or with a more original bicycle rickshaw. Besides, Kathmandu is a very bike-friendly city, so you can rent one for yourself. You can also get out of the city and hike through Gurung and Magar, regions which offer steep snow-capped mountains, lush forests, and enticing traditional dances.

Pokhara
Moving on to another ancient trading route that connected Tibet to India, Pokhara offers a lot of interesting views and activities. One of them would be to enjoy watching the mule trains that continue the trading tradition, but that is just the beginning.

Short Hikes Pokhara

The mountain scenery is simply stupendous. Annapurna can be admired from here with its high summits that have snow-dropped peaks. And if you want, you can use Pokhara as a starting point to Annapurna and a rugged hike around the Himalaya.

But however magnificent that might sound, the mountains aren’t the tip of the iceberg here. The lakes are stunning too, with Phewa Lake being one of the largest in the area, looking like a huge crystal-blue water bowl. And the cherry on the cake is definitely visiting the temple on the lake.

But the Rupa and Begnas lake are amazing too, and they’re exactly on your way as you drive from Kathmandu. There’s a forest between them where you can o some hiking, and this natural retreat bursts with tranquillity, though you can enjoy some boating here too.

Don’t forget about the amazing waterfall of Devins, which the Nepalese call Hells Fall for a good reason: it’s tumbling down so forcefully, that it’s said to actually have carried a guy into the other world. If you’re in the area, the Mahendra Gupha, a huge limestone cave with impressive stalactites and stalagmites is also a must-see.

Besides, Pokhara bursts with spirituality too, so don’t forget to visit the Bindhabasini and Barahi temples, which are representative of their religions. And you might get the chance to see believers that carrying animals across the Phewa Lake to Barahi so they can sacrifice them to the goddess Ajima.

Chitwan
Chitwan is among the largest cities in Nepal and bears the name of the valley that shelters it. So understandably, there is lots of urban entertainment like the local restaurants which serve traditional cuisine.

The KC’s is a bungalow with a thatch roof, which makes it particularly interesting. There’s also a fire pit in the backyard, but the front garden is extremely well kept. You’ll also love the Sweet Memory restaurant with its homemade-like meals. And don’t forget the Jungle-View restaurant which offers a fascinating viewpoint to the, you guessed it, jungle.

Chitwan Jungle Safari Tour
Chitwan Jungle Safari Tour

Speaking of which, this region is mostly visited because it offers an immersion into the wildlife with its zoos, national parks, and safaris. The Elephant Breeding Center is near Sauraha and you can see first-hand how the elephants live in the wild. And if you’re more interested in birdwatching, there’s also the Bird Education Society closeby.

The National Park Headquarters located on the Rapti River bank also provides various safari opportunities. Now you’ll get to admire the exotic Nepalese jungle and the animals that live here, like fierce crocodiles and placable hippos.

And don’t forget about the cultural side of Chitwan. The Tharu Cultural Museum is perfect for getting more acquainted with the Tharu culture. There are plenty of exhibits regarding the traditional wear, ornaments, as well as vibrant murals.

The Tharus are an indigenous people who see themselves as sons of the forest, so their spirituality is closely linked to nature and the forest as well. That’s because many of their deities actually live in the forest, and they have to give people permission to enter their dwelling place. So even if the museum is closed, you’ll still get the chance to hear a new, captivating perspective about spirituality from a deeply religious community.

With that in mind, we’re sure you’ll never regret taking this tour. Filled with the most diverse experiences, from admiring architectural gems to pampering your taste buds, from experiencing jungle life to understanding new belief systems, this tour is definitely one that will enrich your life.
