The itinerary includes acclimatization days to avoid Altitude Sickness. The sickness is common at high altitudes. Please note that sickness is a topic to be taken very seriously. Here are some few extra preventions: 

  • Avoid climbing rapidly, give your body some time to adjust

Friendly guide and friendly Nepalese

From: United Kingdom | On: 15 Mar, 2019

Our trip to Annapurna Base Camp was an absolute success. Everything went according to the plan, thanks to the team at CoreTreks for guiding us all the way through.

You have to do a lot of hiking so do not expect it to be easy. People in Nepal are really kind and friendly they helped us a lot. The food is delicious. We had minor issues but the guiding professionals took care of it. Looking forward for another visit soon. Love from UK.

Annapurna was mind blowing

From: India | On: 04 Oct, 2019

I had heard about Annapurna Base Camp trek and the Himalayas but did not expect it to be that much amazing of a trip. It was a bit cold as we expected at the foothill of a mountain. But the hospitality was great. They served us the local tea, which was refreshing and I wanted to bring home some. Apparently I could not.

However we had an absolutely amazing time. Thanks to CoreTreks for taking care of us and our luggage. Love Nepal and the mountains. Will visit again for sure. 

ABC - One of the best travel and trekking routes

From: Italy | On: 10 Aug, 2019

The trek was lifetime memories & experience for us. Good effort from the trek leader to guide all of us to reach the destination. The staff response was excellent. This trek has increased the mental strength of every one of us. Everything was organized perfectly from the pick up to every detail, including food, accommodation, guiding & providing the needful information. Special THANKS to coretrek team for their professionalism and answering all our questions (and we had alots!) :) Really hope to be back for some more trekking experience very soon :) Dhanyavaad!
Trek was nice, should have booked a flight to Pokhara

From: Canada | On: 05 Nov, 2018

We had a really fun time during our trek to the Annapurna Base Camp but I really wish we should have booked the flight to Pokhara instead by bus.

Even though the highway drive was awesome but took us six and a half hours to reach Pokhara. We could have had more time if we went by flight to enjoy the city. Nevertheless, an amazing trip.

CoreTreks and the team made sure we had a comfortable trip throughout our journey and I definitely recommend them.

Loved the Pokhara city

From: United States | On: 04 Aug, 2015

The Annapurna Base Camp trek was amazing and the team were really helpful. I loved Pokhara and wanted to spend more time there. The city is amazing and offers a lot of fun activities to do. I saw people involved in paragliding, boating, bungee jumping and many more.

I definitely want to try paragliding in Pokhara next time I visit Nepal. Other than that, thanks to CoreTreks and the team, you all are really hardworking and helpful. I highly recommend you to book via CoreTreks. Thanks.
