The route via Naya Pul is the most popular, although there are so many variant itineraries to trek to ABC. 10-Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek makes a little circuit via Ghorepani Poon Hill, which rewards spectacular mountain scenery. Then the trail goes on eventually to the 4130 meters up to the iconic Annapurna Base Camp via Chhomrong.  Similarly, you may choose 7-days ABC Trek if you don’t have enough time. But it would help if you had proper acclimatization on the trek to prevent health hazards. The trekkers witness diverse habitats, terraced fields, and rhododendron forests before arriving at ABC. Reasonable accommodation and food facilities are available in the ABC trek.

The locals are not only friendly but also welcome you with warm hospitality. The trekking trail will close on rare occasions because of the massive amount of snow. Some section of the path of the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek is a high risk of avalanche, especially in the spring and winter season. It would be best if you are aware, although the spring season is the best time to Trek to Annapurna Base Camp. But it also conducts for all other seasons too. Indeed, the Annapurna’s endless alluring view makes the Annapurna Base Camp trek worthwhile all the time.
