DESCRIPTION Edit

Best Time to Go Anytime except for July/August

Trail outline: Starting from Ghandruk, the trail follows the Modi River through Chhomrong to Annapurna Base Camp. The trails are mostly well defined and easy to follow. Additionally since there are lodges/settlements every 2 hours, navigation isn’t an issue.

Accommodation: Accommodation during the Annapurna Base Camp ranges from the basic to mid-range lodges. Luxury accommodations are non-existent except at a few larger settlements like Ghandruk, Landruk and Dhampus. However, the most important thing about accommodation during this trek is the shortage of beds in the villages north of Chhomrong. Hence, it makes a lot of sense to call in advance to book your spot and even then try to get to your night stop as early as possible.

Risks While AMS can be an issue, it is easily averted by sticking to the itinerary provided. There is a reason why the days between Chhomrong and MBC are short. Keep them that way. Another risk factor during this trek is avalanches. However, no one has even been buried under one in the past 15 years even though the number of people walking this section easily goes above 40,000. Cross the section between Dobhan-Himalayan and Deurali-MBC before 11 am especially during late spring.

Route Variations: Apart from Ghandruk, you can start your trek from Dhampus, Australian Camp, or Landruk. It is also possible to append the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek to this trek.
