Oh, the view you wake up to today. You will see the Glimpse of Annapurna South, Machapuchare, Hinchuli and Gangapurna as you wake up to brush.


Trek Route: Your trek starts today with a checkpoint where your ACAP ( Annapurna Conservation Area permit ) and TIMS ( trekkers information management system ) permits would be checked. TIMS is regularly neglected by many trekkers who are trekking alone, but we highly recommend you to get it beforehand.


We call the route today: the stairway to heaven. You will see a lot of cute cafes and Baristas enroute today. We usually stop at one of them when we are returning. Yes, we are taking the same way back.

Duration of the trek today:8-9 hours, 15.5 km approx.

After spending about 20 odd hours in the base camp, we start our descent back on the same path. Today is a long day, so do wear your Knee braces if you have got one.

If you have trekking poles, I recommend using 2 of them. It will drastically decrease the impact such long treks have on your Knees.

TRIP REVIEWS

Krishnan - annapurna base camp
Krishnan Thampi

I like action packed suspense thriller movie rather than a boring drama, same is the case with my travel choice. I am a traveller who would like to explore and experience things and places, an action packed one rather than a boring tour. My experience with Vyshakh' one in the orange jacket team is amazing, really an action packed thriller and would love to do more exploration with him.

I AM COMING SOLO. IS THAT A PROBLEM ?

Most people come alone for my trips. About 25% of the people bring a friend or partner.Honestly It really doesn’t matter. I have seen on all the batches I have lead. Most people really gel with everyone, even the ones who thought wouldn’t gel up, surprise themselves always with the way they got comfortable with everyone.

YOUR ITINERARY LOOKS DIFFICULT FOR ME. CAN I DO IT ?

Each trek/ trip is rated according to the number of days we spend outdoors . If you aren’t sure where to start, go with an easy trip or trek.

For trips,
I dreamed of trips where we could go out hike , get exhausted , come back to hotel and have a great evening. This is exactly why some of my trips have Day hikes in it. It is a perfect chance for people who have never hiked in their entire life. Don’t worry, We are there :).

For treks,
you can start with Sandhakphu or Chandrashila . You can also benchmark yourself for the treks.

1. If you can run for 30 mins and cover around 3-3.5 km , then you can go ahead with an easy trek
2. If you can run for 30 mins and cover around 3.5-4 km , then you can go ahead with an moderate trek
3. If you can run for 30 mins and cover around 4-5 km , then you can go ahead with an difficult trek

If you have never done a high altitude trek, then start with a easy or Easy- moderate trek. That way you will understand how your body reacts to high altitude and you can check you cardio strength too.

WHAT ARE TRIPS LIKE ?

Usually, most batch sizes are between 12-20 people who are aged between 16-38. Most people come alone or with a friend. The trip would feel like you are travelling more with college friends than strangers. We tend to do more outdoorsy things than regular trips .

For example : If we find a very pretty waterfall/ a beautiful sunset / Rainbow on the way. We would stop the vehicle right away to catch the beauty of it.

We usually sleep very late on these trips as we play a lot of group games and most people feel they will miss the precious time with the group members and decides to stay awake.
