ABC&ACT

Post by ZoeCC »

Annapurna Base Camp is referred to as ABC. This is the most familiar and popular hiking route for people. Need to start from near Pokhara to the remote Annapurna base camp. The reason why this route is so well-known is that you can see Annapurna Peak very close, and you can also see the Fishtail Peak of Nepal's sacred mountain on the opposite side. Annapurna base camp trek cost starts at USD 2000.

Location: Gandaki District and Dhaulagiri District, Nepal, located in the Annapurna Mountains in northern Nepal
Mileage: about 68 kilometers
Best time: April-May, October-November
Trekking time: 7-10 days

Annapurna Circuit Trek is referred to as ACT. Annapurna Circuit is a trek starting at Bissahar, and there is a direct local bus from Pokhara. You need to climb step by step from a starting point about 800 meters above sea level to the Tolong Pass at an altitude of 5416 meters, and then continue to walk down the mountain road back to Pokhara. The beginning of the hike is to climb slowly, the road conditions are better, and the difficulty is not too great. Nepal Annapurna circuit trek is getting harder and harder to walk to the middle road. As the altitude continues to rise, the difficulty of hiking gradually increases, which is a test of endurance and physical strength. After experiencing the devilish climb, it is a long-distance downhill. There are some landslides in the second half of the journey, so you need to be very careful when passing. The Annapurna Great Loop is known as the world’s number one trekking route, rich in diverse and magnificent landscapes, close to the Himalayas, cultural shocks from Indian Buddhism to Tibetan Buddhism, Nepal’s humanities and customs, and mountains rarely visited by tourists. Trails, from tropical rain forests over 700 meters above sea level to alpine mountains over 5000 meters above sea level.
