The perfect Annapurna Base Camp trek route for slow trekkers

Annapurna Base Camp is a must trek for anyone who gets awestruck by magnificent mountains. The Annapurna Base Camp Trek is a journey with the gorgeous views and sights of the mighty Annapurna massif and its many neighboring peaks. From the very beginning of the trek from Pokhara, prominent mountain peaks like the Machhapuchhre and the Nilgiri along with the massif of the Annapurna Himal grace the distant skyline in a spectacular fashion.  The eight thousand plus meters Annapurna is worth watching in itself. The Annapurna Base Came trek route varies according to your fitness level as well as your no of days you're planning to spend. But it's wise to ascend slowly to get acclimatized. Slow ascend and acclimatization with high altitude will prevent you from Acute Mountain Sickness.

Annapurna Base Camp trek falls in the moderate category. If the weather is favorable you can take children as well. One thing to consider is always traveling in groups, as you may need help time and again. Acute mountain sickness is also a possible threat while traveling high altitude like this. You must carry Diamox, handy place, ORS, dexona tablets, and few anti-vomiting tablets. Chances are you are never going to use it but these can save your life if you get Altitude Sickness.

Your trekking bag should have a minimum number of clothes. Always keep in your mind that you are going to climb uphill and downhill for days with a bag on your back. You start sweating the moment you start trekking right from the morning so you don't need a surplus amount of clothes. Use trekking shoes instead of normal sports shoes. Trekking shoes are light and have the grip to walk over snowy and wet trails. The cost is almost Nepalese Currency 1500 per day for a single person but it widely varies on your food preferences.

 5 days ABC trek 

ABC trek route

 

Day 0. Ghandruk You reach Ghandruk via bus or hired vehicles. You can get vehicles for Ghandruk at Harichowk of Pokhara. The bus goes via Naya Pul to Ghandruk. Spend a night at Ghandruk. I would recommend homestays instead of hotels as homestays are relatively cheaper and the hosts are extremely nice.


Day 1. Ghandruk to Chomrong
Day 2. Chomrong to Himalaya
Day 3. Himalaya to MBC
Day 4. MBC to ABC. Spend some time at ABC and return from ABC to Himalaya.
Day 5. Himalaya to Jhinu. Take a bath at Jhinu rest overnight and then move on to Pokhara the next morning.

Day end: Jhinu to Bus Stand. and then Bus stand to Pokhara

Have a happy stay. Cellular networks are not available after Himalaya but you can ask for SKY Phones from the hotel staffs in case you need to talk to someone. Internet access is available in almost all the hotels.
