Trail Length

The distance between base camp and Pokhara is around 81.1 kilometers. It is the highest distance that you cover during the trek. There are many downhill, uphill, rugged trails and glacier walking. For any normal person, trekking that distance is not an easy activity. Long distance trekking can become tiring but end result is rewarding.

Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness is the biggest factor in this trip. The maximum height on this trip is 3210 m from sea level. Therefore, AMS can happen. However, it is not very serious altitude to get caught by the altitude sickness. Trip starts from Pokhara which is at 800 m. The change in altitude is the major cause of altitude sickness. Proper acclimatization is needed. Therefore, our itinerary focuses more on the client’s safety.

Weather & Climatic Conditions

Nepal’s mountain region has unpredictable weather and climatic conditions. Day temperature is normal but night hours are pretty freezing. Weather can change drastically in just an hour. Expect unexpected changes in climate and weather. However, the team will analyze the situation and only decide whether to push or not.

Trekking Preparation

The best way to prepare for climbing is by doing cardiovascular workouts. These kinds of cardio exercises help to increase lung capacity. In order to climb the mountain, you need strong and healthy lungs.

Do some strength-building training like planks, push-ups, and squats. Cycling is also the best option to prepare your body for climbing. Always start these activities 4-5 months before traveling to Nepal for climbing.

Amazing Annapurna Circuit Trek Went with the Himalaya View Treks team on an annapurna circuit trek. One of the best experiences in my life! The team made everything super seamless. They gave us in-depth information about Nepal as a country and the culture. They ensured our comfort at each of the teahouses. And they took care of us if we weren't feeling well. Overall the team was so warm and fun-loving. I made lasting friendships with all of them and cant wait for my next trip. I would recommend them to all of my friends and family

Highlight of Nepal I spent 2 weeks with Suraj in Langtang valley and it was hands down one of the best experiences of my life. Would highly recommend this company anyone visiting Nepal. Everything was very smooth, from the start to the end, with no logistical or communication challenges. Since he is a local and really knowledgeable about the mountains, it was great to see and listen to things from his experience (peaks, the history of the region, the stories of the people). We stayed with local communities on our way and it was amazing to meet people who have been in the region for the longest and connect over fireside chats and food. The mountains and landscapes we witnessed on a daily basis were jaw dropping. The trip was a clear highlight of my time in Nepal. If you want the real experience of the Himalayas and it’s people, this is the one. Phenomenal experience, miss at your peril.

Unbeschreibliche Erfahrung Annapurna Short Trek Meine Frau und ich haben uns für eine „kurze“ Tour im Himalaya interessiert. Über das Internet sind wir auf Himalayan View Treks gestoßen. Sie haben die 8 Tage Annapurna Short Trek Tour angeboten. Die Kommunikation im Vorfeld per Mail mit Simbir lief super. Er konnte uns vorab alle Informationen geben. Auch eine individuelle Anpassung der Tour (z.B. per Flugzeug zurück) wäre möglich gewesen. Obwohl wir zunächst ein paar Tage in Kathmandu verbracht haben, wurden wir bei Ankunft von unserem Guide abgeholt und zum Hotel gebracht. So sind wir entspannt angekommen. An Tag 1 der Tour wurden wir früh morgens vom Hotel von unserem Guide (D. B.) und unserem Porter (Manoj) abgeholt. Tag 2-7 sind wir von Chame über Pisang, Manang, Ledar, High Camp über den Thorong La Pass nach Muktinath gewandert. Insgesamt waren es ca. 80km, 4.100m nach oben und 3.100m nach unten zu wandern. Tag 8 ging dann per Jeep zurück nach Pokhara. Trotz der für unsere Verhältnisse langen Strecke ging die Tour super zu laufen. Das lag vor allem auch an unserem Guide und Porter! D. B. hat sich stets nach unserem Wohlbefinden erkundet. Jeden Abend gab es einen kurzen Tagesrückblick und Lagebesprechung für den kommenden Tag. So konnten wir währenddessen noch entscheiden, ob wir an einem Tag etwas weiter laufen, um am darauffolgenden Tag etwas weniger machen müssen. Er ging da sehr gut auf uns ein. Manoj hat unseren schweren Rucksack getragen und wir konnten uns so ganz aufs Trekking konzentrieren. Darüber waren wir sehr dankbar. Auch er hat sich immer um uns gekümmert (are you ok? 😉) D.B. hat uns über den gesamten Trek viel Wissen über das Land und die Berge vermittelt. Außerdem konnte er uns viele interessante Bergsteiger Geschichten erzählen. Wir hatten 8 unbeschreibliche Tage! Unsere anfänglich Angst und Sorge, es nicht zu schaffen wurde uns durch den professionellen Umgang komplett genommen. Vielen Dank dafür!

Amazing guide company エベレスト街道で15日間のガイドをお願いしました。我々は友達と3人でしたがみんなに親切丁寧にガイドしてくれ大変助かりました。ルクラへの飛行機が天候不良で5日間も乗ることができずラメチャップ空港で困ってるときには偶然同じ会社の別のガイドとでくわし、飛行機をあきらめジープで行く方法を提案してくれブブサまで案内してくれた。また我々のガイドもブブサまで迎えに来てくれた。日程が厳しくなったにもかかわらず何とか目的地まで行く工程をくんでくれ、おかげで大変楽しいトレッキングとなった。来年行く予定の友達にもこのガイド会社をすすめておきます。

We used the services of a porter guide from the company on the Annapurna base camp trek. Rahul was truly amazing! so helpful and easy! We really appreciated his looking after us, helping pick the best accommodation and break spots along the way, making sure we are warm and positive. Would strongly recommend Rahul for those trekkers who look for a devoted and switched on porter guide.

We had a fantastic 3 passes hike thanks to the guidance, expertise and professionalism of Bishal Rai. He was a great trip partner, providing local knowledge and a sense of humor along the way. He even pointed out all the peak names to us many times due to our forgetfulness. Thank you and highly recommend Himalaya View Treks and guide, Bishal Rai.

Just returned home from a fantastic adventure holiday on the EBC trek. Himalaya View Treks couldn't of been more helpful from choosing and booking our trek before we arrived through to dropping us back to the airport once we had finished , nothing was too much trouble. Before coming to Nepal me and my dad was unsure if we needed a guide however we are now so pleased that we decided to get one. Sobit our guide made the experience so much better as he took care of all the arrangements and organising leaving us to concentrate on the trek and enjoy the scenery without any stress. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Himalaya View Treks and would request Sobit as a guide as he was brilliant!!!!
