Trekking in Nepal does not require past experience, though we have challenging route in Annapurna our itinerary suggests walking comfortable distances.

Altitude sickness is a major risk when trekking. You might experience it on any trails above 2,500 m however; good health, proper care and drinking plenty of water will definitely help you to prevent from altitude sickness.

Best Time to Trek

Undertaking on the Annapurna Base Camp  trek is a thrilling adventure, and choosing the right season can significantly enhance your experience. While trekking is possible throughout the year, two seasons stand out as the best for this trek: Spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November).

Spring (March-May):

In spring, the Annapurna region blossoms into a vibrant tapestry of colors. The weather is mild, and rainfall is minimal, creating perfect trekking conditions. The temperatures at the base camp hover between 10 to 0°C, making it comfortably cool. The lower trekking areas are even warmer, offering a pleasant journey.

One of the highlights of the spring season is the blooming rhododendron flowers, painting the landscape with various hues. The skies are clear, providing unobstructed views of the majestic mountains. The crisp air and comfortable temperatures make this season ideal for a trekking adventure, allowing you to revel in nature's beauty without any hindrance.

Autumn (September to November):

Autumn, another prime season for the ABC trek, boasts sunny days and crystal-clear skies. The weather ranges from mild to warm, ensuring a pleasant trekking experience. The clean environment enhances the grandeur of the landscape, offering superb views of the surrounding mountains.

Moreover, autumn brings additional cultural delights, as it aligns with Nepal's biggest festivals - Dashain & Tihar. Trekking during these seasons allows you to immerse yourself in the festive mood and witness traditional celebrations amidst the stunning Himalayan backdrop.

Trekking in Off-Season:

While trekking to ABC is possible in off-seasons, such as winter and Monsoon, it comes with inherent risks. Winter brings harsh weather conditions with sub-zero temperatures, snowfall, and icy trails, making the trek challenging and perilous. Monsoon, on the other hand, brings heavy rainfall, leading to slippery paths, leech-infested trails, and the risk of landslides.

Trekking in these off-seasons demands additional preparation, experience, and caution. For a safer and more enjoyable trekking experience, Spring and Autumn remain the optimal choices, ensuring you witness the breathtaking beauty of Annapurna in the best possible conditions. Choose your season wisely and embark on a journey that promises not only adventure but an unforgettable communion with nature's grandeur.

Panoramic Views from Poon Hill: A Golden Dawn

  • On the third day, as the trail winds towards Ghorepani, a radiant dawn beckons trekkers to Poon Hill.
  • Poon Hill stands as one of the trek's pinnacle viewpoints, offering an unobstructed panorama that includes Mount Dhaulagiri, the Annapurna Range, and the iconic Machhapuchhre (Fishtail Mountain).
  • To the north, the colossal Annapurna I (8091m) presides, surrounded by a 360-degree expanse of majestic peaks—an awe-inspiring moment etched in every trekker's memory.
  • The sun paints the sky in golden hues, creating a standout spectacle.

Cultural Odyssey through Ethnic Communities: Enriching Encounters

  • The cultural odyssey begins as the trail meanders through diverse ethnic communities.
  • In the lower elevations, encounters with Brahmans and Chhetris enrich the cultural tapestry.
  • The ascent into the Himalayas introduces the distinctive Mongoloid Himalayan people, predominantly the Gurung and Magar communities.
  • Each village and encounter unfolds a unique story, seamlessly blending natural wonders with the rich tapestry of Nepal's diverse heritage.

Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP)

  • Cost: Nrs 3,000 per person.
  • Where to Obtain: The ACAP can be acquired either at the Tourism Board of Nepal or in Pokhara, with payment in Nepali currency.
  • Company Assistance: If you choose to trek with us, obtaining the required ACAP becomes our responsibility, ensuring a hassle-free experience for you.

TIMS Card (Trekkers' Information Management System)

Requirement: Effective from March 31, 2023, specific Protected Areas of Nepal, including the Annapurna region, mandate that trekkers be accompanied by a licensed trekking guide and carry a TIMS Card issued by a trekking agency.

Your Annapurna Base Camp trek promises a blend of nature and comfort in accommodation from Kathmandu to Pokhara and throughout the trekking route.

In Kathmandu and Pokhara:

  • Standard hotels are the norm, providing a cozy stay.
  • For those desiring a touch of luxury, up to star-level hotels are available with an additional cost.

Along the Trekking Route:

  • Accommodation primarily consists of teahouses and mountain lodges.
  • Teahouses offer a unique charm, connecting you with the natural beauty surrounding the trek.
  • While amenities may vary, each accommodation provides a comfortable and memorable experience amidst the stunning landscapes.

Teahouse Experience

  • Embrace the simplicity and warmth of these mountain accommodations.
  • Connect with nature as you make your journey not just an adventure but a comfortable and memorable experience.

Whether you choose standard hotels, luxurious stays, or the charm of teahouses, your accommodations are thoughtfully curated to complement the beauty of the Annapurna region.

Camp Base de l'Annapurna Trekking

Nous avons passé 3 semaines au Népal en février 2010 dont 12 jours en compagnie de Nabin qui nous a fait découvrir un petit bout de l’Himalaya.

Nous avons choisi un trek nous amenant au camp de base des Annapurna en passant par les villages et sites immanquables pour tout touriste curieux de découvrir en profondeur ces montagnes, sa faune, sa flore mais aussi ses habitants et le mode de vie qui en découle.

Nous marchions 4/5 heures par jour en prenant le temps d’apprendre les chansons du pays et quelques mots népalais…Nabin, qui parle le français, nous a transmis beaucoup de connaissances sur sa culture et sur la montagne.

Son humour et sa bonne humeur ont été de bonnes amies durant ce séjour et toujours soucieux de nous offrir le meilleur, nous n’avons jamais manqué de rien.

Nous avons partagé de bons moments de camaraderie, sur le chemin et dans les refuges et pris le temps de découvrir et de nous enrichir d’autres choses que ce pourquoi nous étions venus…

Nous projetons de revenir marcher au Népal dans un futur proche,… Et c’est sans aucun doute que nous ferons appel à ses services pour nous guider et nous proposer un itinéraire en rapport à nos envies, besoins et motivations.

Impressive experience with professional hospitality

Me and my friends made our first visit to Nepal last December, We choose ABC as our destination. For a people who are not so strong and well prepared like us, have to say that a well-organized from Nabin help us a lot to go up there.

My first impression with HMT is that, when we inquire for the trip, Nabin is very supportive and flexible in trip customization. And when we got there, we got a warm welcome from Nabin and his team. He’s friendly and sincere to support you. You can tell that he love what he’s doing when you met him there.

During our trek, our guide, Krishna, is so reliable and really calm, even we go with an annoyingly slow pace, He have a very good English, and a good story about Nepal to share with you along the way. Porters is nice and supportive. It’s a good experience to trek with them.

Too bad I can’t finish the trip since I have to evacuate from ABC by helicopter, but since I start to get injured, I got a very good support from Nabin and Krishna in contacting to the insurance company, to make sure that the helicopter take me to a good hands. Thanks to that too.

In short, It’s a very good experience with me to trek to ABC with HMT

Strongly recommend if you are looking for a good friend in Nepal !!

Smooth arrangement

Our group of 6 did the ABC trek in mid November. 

One of our friends corresponded with Nabin who's very fluent in English. The arrangement was smooth and he's prompt in responding to our queries.

We were greeted with garlands of flower hanged on our heads at the airport. Great hospitality.

They've helped us settled down quickly and brought us to rent good quality sleeping bags and down jackets at a very good price.

We had a guide and a porter assigned to each pair. 

The guide, Kumar, arranged the lodging and pace the group on the go and he is flexible to adapt to the changes/challenges we faced in the mountain. He is also experienced enough to advise on the less dangerous route while making our way down.

On two occasions, our porters "fly" to the next lodge/tea after unfruitful calls from the guide to book our rooms. They ensured that we always have a good room despite during this high season.

Like what Kumar always emphasized: "we are like a family in this trek. anything, can happen in the mountains. We'll have to adapt."

Nabin is also very warm and sincere in welcoming us and closing everything off with a farewell dinner. It was really a good experience with Himalayan magic treks and they made us felt comfortable. We felt the sincerity from all.

Nabin and Kumar also helped me with a side request of getting chilli :))

Perfect Organization

Great organization, professionalism and client-oriented attitude are staples of Himalayan Magic Treks. From the very beginning until the last minutes I had only the best experience. This was my first trip to Nepal and Asia in that matter (I am from Poland) and one of the greatest experiences of life so far. And it confirmed my opinion that no matter the place - it is people who make all the difference and make the time spent worthwhile.

The contact with HMT was smooth from the very first email. After three back and forth messages I had all the information I needed. The replies from Mr Nabin were timely and on the point. I went for classic Annapurna Base Camp Trek + Poon Hill and never regretted my choice. I found the price very reasonable.

In Kathmandu MHT helped me exchange money, showed directions and arranged my visit to The Great Buddha Stupa which amazes with its architecture, colors and melding of two big religions.

My guide, Mr Sitaram, who also picked me from the airport and greeted with flowers on the first day, was a very experienced, friendly and a helpful person. He was also a very amusing guy and we clicked quickly. He was always able to answer my many questions about Nepal and was adjusting the speed of walking to compensate for photo opportunities (photography freak here) or fatigue. He also advised me on appropriate clothing for the weather conditions and helped me with food choices. I let Mr Sitaram choose the places for lunches and lodges for nights confident that I will always get the best local cuisine and good room. He never failed me once. Please remember though that the rooms are far from hotel standards but great comforts are not the point of treks.

December for me was a great time for trekking since there are less tourists on the trail and the temperatures are still ok.

The Nepal is amazing! From the glorious gleaming peaks robed in eternal snow, through the waterfalls scattered throughout the landscape to jungle-like forests inhabited by exotic animals (monkeys are here!) the country grips you with it's allure and let's you go only until the last moment. Smiling people are always eager to help, although older people rarely speak good English. Amazing experience overall.
I will be returning to Nepal next year but this time I won't have to wonder which trekking company to choose :)

BIG THANKS

The Best Trekking Company in Nepal

#1 Company in Nepal After few emails with Nabin, owner of Himalayan Magic Treks . We finally booked our trip with Himalayan Magic Treks before coming to Nepal and the process was faultless from the very beginning. We tailored a trek that suited us and our dates. We went to Poon Hill and ABC in 9 days program. Which is made by Nabin and his suggestion was absolutely perfect for us. We are very lucky to got contact this company from internet and Nabin answered promptly so it makes me 100 % trust this Company with his details information. 

The tea houses we stayed in looked better than some of the other accommodation available.The guide and porters spoke excellent English and were very easy to speak with. They were keen to learn more and were very knowledgeable on the route and answered all of our questions. Their good humour allowed a sufficient amount of banter between our group which made it very enjoyable. They were always offering to help with any problems. In contrast, other guides and groups from other companies looked far worse. Magic Treks' were far better kitted out and professional than all the other guides and porters we saw. A level of professionalism that made us feel more at ease.

Going in wet season we had expected poor weather but were very lucky and got amazing views of at ABC despite not having been to Poon Hill because of poor weather.

Overall, Himalayan Magic Treks were professional and reasonable in price. If/when I return to Nepal I would only consider using them. A brilliant company and one sure to make your trip to Nepal amazing

Wonderful trekking experience to Annapurana Base Camp

I’ve just came back from ABC trekking. To me, it is the best trek ever!. I’m impressed in such amazing scenery (ABC and Poonhill), good weather, nice people, good food (esp. pizza and French toast), good accommodations (Fish tail lodge at MBC and Chomrong Mountain View lodge at Chomrong are one of my favorite lodges) and especially well-organized tour (the Himalayan Magic Treks).

Our group has 17 members and fortunately everybody can successfully reach the ABC without any injuries or sickness. Reaching the ABC to me is not just a dream anymore. If you want to escape from somewhere, I do recommend Nepal. There you could find new inspiration by your own pace.

I would like to thank all my trekking friends for sharing this wonderful moment together and thank our guides (Dipak, Kris, and Bhupa) and all the porters from the Himalayan Magic Treks for your kind support and cheering along the way. Without you guys, my way to ABC could be very tough.

Thank you all the crews of Himalayan Magic Treks, Mr. NABIN KARKI, Chhiri - my best guide ever, and our porter. You all are kindness and helpful. Thank you again. Highly recommend this Company

Trek au sanctuaire des Annapurnas,

Des amis nous ont fait rêver de leur premier trek les balcons des Annapurna, les yeux fermés nous les avons suivi pour une nouvelle expérience mais toujours avec Himalaya Magic trek et son guide Dipak. On revient séduit par ce magnifique pays, par les sourires des personnes rencontrées, les chants des enfants dans les villages, les couleurs et les lumières de la fête, les odeurs d'encens et des fleurs.... Dipak à notre écoute a su nous faire partager la culture de son pays, faire de ce trek un moment inoubliable. on a déjà envie de repartir. Nous avons aussi apprécié la connivence avec son équipe de porteurs. On recommande cette belle équipe.

Fantastique trek au sanctuaire des annapurnas

Notre 2ème trek au Népal, avec Dipak Karki. Des souvenirs extraordinaires tant par les paysages que par l'extrême attention portée par nos guides Dipak et Bopha et par l'équipe des porteurs, Shambu, Subash, Prakash et Bupha 2.
Grâce à nos guides, nous avons participé à la cérémonie de la tika, à des célébrations des fêtes de la lumière. Chaque jour , une surprise nous attendait.
Bref , du haut de gamme !

Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) Trek

Our group of 6 did the ABC trek in mid November.

One of our friends corresponded with Nabin who's very fluent in English. The arrangement was smooth and he's prompt in responding to our queries.

We were greeted with garlands of flower hanged on our heads at the airport. Great hospitality.

They've helped us settled down quickly and brought us to rent good quality sleeping bags and down jackets at a very good price.

We had a guide and a porter assigned to each pair.

The guide, Kumar, arranged the lodging and pace the group on the go and he is flexible to adapt to the changes/challenges we faced in the mountain. He is also experienced enough to advise on the less dangerous route while making our way down.

On two occasions, our porters "fly" to the next lodge/tea after unfruitful calls from the guide to book our rooms. They ensured that we always have a good room despite during this high season.

Like what Kumar always emphasized: "we are like a family in this trek. anything, can happen in the mountains. We'll have to adapt."

Nabin is also very warm and sincere in welcoming us and closing everything off with a farewell dinner. It was really a good experience with Himalayan magic treks and they made us felt comfortable. We felt the sincerity from all.

Nabin and Kumar also helped me with a side request of getting chilli :))

Thanks Nabin, Kumar, Umesh, a.kumar, Ashok.

ABC trek

A big thank you to Himalayan Magic Trek for providing 6 of us with a great experience to visit Annapurna Base Camp.

Nabin was quick and responsive to our itinerary enquiries. And making sure that our package was sufficiently prepared.

And our guide (Kumar) and 3porters (Umesh, Ashok, A.kumar) helped us with our pre-trekking preparations. They advised us along the way on what to lookout during the trek, and managed our necessities (eg. meals,rooms,water) throughout the 9-days. Our guide also provided us with a daily update of what and where we would be trekking towards.

Sightseeing tours in Pokhara and Chitwan Safar were also well organized through the company.

Once again, thank you very much for providing us an awesome 16days tour package in Nepal !

We will see you again !

Trip of a lifetime - Annapurna November 2017

I wrote to a number of trek companies when we decided to book a trip to Nepal last November, and Nabin came back with the quickest and most detailed response. I ended up asking many questions in advance, and he sent through a number of tailor-made routes to fit in with our itinerary and my concerns about how tricky it would be.
He collected us at the airport and made me feel very welcome, and helped us to sort out our equipment and currency straight away once arriving at the hotel.

Our guide Sitaram was truly amazing for the whole trip, and it wouldn't have been the same without him. He had very good English, and was very knowledgeable about the mountains and history, answering our many questions along the way. I felt pleased we had picked Himalayan Magic Treks, as we were able to go at our own slow pace, and a group wasn't relying on us to keep up.

Sitaram was always very organised when we stopped at the end of each day, to give us a run down of the next day's activities, and the terrain to be expected. He showed us around Pokhara at the end of our trek and gave us some good recommendations. We really enjoyed our end of trek meal with both Nabin and Sitaram too!!!

We would 100% use Himalayan Magic Treks again!

First time ABC Trekking

My friends and I (17 ppl) came from Thailand for trekking to the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) with Himalayan Magic Treks during 6 - 17 April 2017. My first impression was about flower at the airport and that's very nice. Our leader of guide team for this trip was Dipak, our guide was Krishna and Bhupa was assistant guide. They are all Karki Family and worked well as a team to take care and encourage us to the ABC. During the trip, we had a problem with our plan but they showed us the solution and didn't leave us alone until brought us to destination. Along the trip ,their service were surprisingly us, they served us the good lodge ( hard to find the available rooms for 17 ppl at that time) and good food ( i still remembered the menu for drink LOL) that made us stayed in very comfortable. One more thing about song, they taught us the old Nepali Song called "Resham Firiri". That's very beautiful song.

Thank you again for our guide and porters that gave us the memorable experience there.

Next year, I have a plan to EBC then it has no doubt that Himalayan Magic Treks will be my first choice to go with.

Wonderful experience

Nabin, the owner of this company, was really helpful with finding the right dates and the perfect trek for our trip. My aunt and I decided to go to ABC and trek for 9 days. Nabin made sure that the trip was flexible for everybody. When we arrived to Kathmandu and until our flight back everything was arranged by him (all the transportations, flights,..) so we had nothing to worry about. Our tour guide and carrier were very nice and told us a lot of interesting things about Nepal. They were very adaptable, as we changed our route a bit. They made sure that the trek was perfect for us. The trek is very nice. We saw a lot of beautiful mountains, waterfalls, trees... The length and difficulty of this trek were just right. I highly recommend this trek and if you are looking for an agency to book the trek, this is the right one. They made sure, we had one of the best experiences in Nepal.

Wonderful experience of trekking

If you are looking for trekking agency, this is the one that I strongly recommend. Just tell them about the period and destination. Nabin, agency owner, he well organized trekking programme, prepared trekking permits, provided an experienced guide (Depak, more than 20 years experience) and nice porters, transportation during trekking and airport-hotel pick up, nice hotel in Kathmandu and Pokhara etc. The service and anything that he and his team did for us was very impressive since the first day we met till the last day we stayed in Nepal.

Fantastic and more than value for money

We visited ABC during 6-17 April and we desired to trek with agency.
we go to abc with fantastic team; Deepark, Las and Dhaka. they not only bring us to target but take care us for everything during we stay in Nepal.

Of cause, you can make permit and find potter and guild by yourself but it will be more confirm and easy by using agency.

They flexible and have many plan if unexpected occur; our get sick during Deurali and they give advice with give the best choice for us.

Warmest welcome and farewell from Nabin; the owner is very impress for our group.

Again, I confirm that trekking in Nepal is safe and can be manage by yourself but if you chose easy way. I confirm that Himalayan Magic Treks is more than value for your money.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek

We had a brilliant holiday walking to ABC with an excellent guide and porter. Every day the view of the Himalayas got a little bit better and we loved the variety of the ABC trek going through terraced villages, bamboo and rhododendron forests before getting up high into the snow-line. Nabin was very easy to communicate with when organising our trek from the UK and we would request our brilliant guide and porter again if we came back. We would highly recommend Himalayan Magic Treks to all our friends.

Genial

Hicimos la excursión al Annapurna Basecamp con ellos. En todo momento la comunicación previa resultó muy fácil con ellos. Una vez allí nos vinieron a recoger al aeropuerto y gestionaron todo lo que necesitábamos. Durante el trekking todo fuer perfecto. Recomiendo totalmente HMT para hacer cualquier trekking en Nepal. Muchas gracias por todo Nabin y Kumar!

Annapurna Circuit and Annapurna Base camp

Himalayan Magic Treks made one of the greatest adventures in my life possible. I did a 22 day hike around Annapurna on the Annapurna Circuit and to it's basecamp. The region was unbelievable beautiful beyond any imaginations and all the people I met on the trek were friendly and helpful.
But what made my trek so uniqueful was my guide who was so friendly and kind ALL the time!! We shared so many good laughs and are linked together because of all the things we experienced.
The trek itself was demanding but with all the help provided by my guide and the company more than doable. They organized almost everything for me. The transport to the region, all the stays, my meals and even helped me by choosing souvenirs in the end.
I felt safe all the time even in the higher regions of the trek. The company and my guide informed me before and during the trek about any risks and how we could avoid them.
My guide even tought me some Nepali.

I can highly recommend the trek itself but most of all the company!

Thank you for everythin Nabin and Sitaram!!
