It’s astonishing how time passes quickly. A half year prior (this article was first distributed in November 2013), I chose to go out on a limb an and start voyaging solo, and in the blink of an eye, I was in the Himalayas in Nepal, trekking Annapurna Base Camp, the climb I have
I have met numerous individuals en route, and many had disclosed to me that I was insane to take on the Himalayas on my first trek alone with no guide or watchman. At the point when I then again, I was not insane but rather I thought little of the trouble of trekking the Himalayas. The path resembled a crazy ride. You either go up or go down, making my adventure slipping as similarly drained as rising.
You can likewise get some open air gear in Kathmandu if vital. I emphatically prescribe bringing your basic things from home (climbing boots, rucksack, downpour coat). What I got in Kathmandu was a modest down coat and a woolen cap. Note that all the apparatus is phony and for the most part it’s fit to be discarded after your trek. On the off chance that you intend to do as such, you may likewise select to offer it to your guide or your watchman rather for them to reuse it.
Annapurna Base Camp has been on the guide as a world-class trekking course for a considerable length of time, and in light of current circumstances. It’s wildernesses, spans, neighborhood friendliness, and crude snow capped perspectives on the heavenly Macchapuchre and Annapurna herself are an entrancing mix.
At the point when we heard going to Nepal to cover EBC and ABC consecutive would be the finale of our Bikat investigations, I was excited, yet I should admit – I wound up wishing that we could do ABC first and afterward end on a positive note with All things considered, it’s Everest Base Camp, the adventure to the tallest mountain on earth. THAT can’t in any way, shape or form be beaten by ABC, a trek scarcely half as long to a mountain far less renowned.
Man, was I so off-base. Be that as it may, we’ll arrive.
Body tired from having quite recently completed the 120km EBC course with a 40lb rucksack two days prior, we tossed our sacks back on and made a beeline for Pokhara, the beginning stage for ABC. Promptly my heart liquefied for this unique spot.
Settled close to an enormous lake beneath the mountains, Pokhara made me feel as though I had by one way or another coincidentally gone to the sea shore. In this landlocked nation, we leased a little pontoon and towed it out onto the waters, dunking our feet in and professing to converse with the fish. We walked around the footpath, getting a brew here and tasting grilled pork there in the little bamboo shacks that line the shore.
I overlooked we had come there to trek, in case I’m by and large absolutely legitimate.
In any case, we were, so off we went the following morning, beginning the week off solid by rising 1,000 meters on Day 1. My manner about ABC versus EBC started to transform from the subsequent we started. I had expected that the wildernesses paving the way to ABC would be indistinguishable from the ones rising upward from Lukla – wrong once more.

Be that as it may, trekkers consistently have the alternative of a temporary re-route, in the event that they have time and are hoping to investigate more.
Nourishment and Water during the Annapurna Base Camp Trek
Appropriate nourishment and water admission is an exceptionally basic piece of any trekking. Since, the Annapurna Base Camp course is totally possessed by individuals, restaurant alternatives are more along the path, contrasted with the other trekking courses in Along these lines, the suppers served during the trek will be according to the tea house menu. The standard bundles offered by organizations as a rule incorporate three significant suppers (breakfast, lunch, supper) and tea and espresso.
