Annapurna Base Camp Trek is a spectacular journey on foot to the South Face of Annapurna I – a classic walk through the diverse Nepalese landscape and its culture. This popular trek ascends through picturesque villages to the center of the Annapurna range offering dramatic mountain scenery. Standing in the middle of the Sanctuary, surrounded by towering snowy peaks ranging between 6000-8000m, is a truly awe-inspiring experience. The Sanctuary trek is perhaps one of the more challenging of the teahouse treks. If you allow the time to ascend at your own pace this trek is open to the moderately fit A minimum of 10 days from Pokhara should be allowed to complete this trek with extra days for exploring the Base Camp and for alternative routes down, for example via the Hot Springs of Tatopani.

On your 15-day journey you will reach the base camp of the world’s 10th highest mountain, Annapurna (8,091m); visit some UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu, relaxing in the beauty of Pokhara, enjoy breathtaking Himalayan vistas during the trek and experience the sunrise over the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna ranges from Poon Hill.

Best trekking experience that we had in long time. Went to ABC with my husband. We have been trekking in Nepal since 2010 with Sisne. Dambar is the most friendly and honest person you will ever meet. His experience and knowledge in Tourism industry for more than 2 decades, can be seen in the service he provides. Staff members are very informative and fluent in English. In this itinerary, you get to visit important sites in Kathmandu and Pokhara along with Annapurna and Machhapuchre. My husband was so excited that he plans to do EBC in couple of years later. Can’t wait to go back to Nepal.

My overall experience with Sisne is positive. I am a solo traveler going to Annapurna Base Camp. I found them in lonely planet and contacted them. The response was quick and very professional. The trekking started on time, which was impressive considering I’d only made the appointment couple of days back. My guide Krishna was really helpful and knowledgeable. Being a solo female traveler, I was little worried but thanks to Dambar and his staff, they helped me in every way possible. Kudos to Sisne team for their hard work. I will come back again for my future trekking plans.

We just completed a 9 day trek to the Annapurna Base Camp, thanks to Sisne Rover. It was an amazing experience. The company was amazingly responsive during the planning stages (and we had reached out to a few agencies) and really worked to accommodate our requests. Milan was our guide and he was perfect. He couldn’t have worked harder to ensure every need or request was met. You can depend on your guide a great deal at the high guest houses, especially as they get busy during the peak season. Milan made sure we were not lost in the bustle of activity and ensured he hiked ahead of crowds and maximized the hours best for photographing! We had wanted to choose a well known “local” Pokhara business and couldn’t recommend it more. Having chatted with a range of other trekkers, it truly seemed we had the best agency and guide on our side.
