How to Trek the Annapurna Base Camp in 7 Days - An Independent Guide to Trekking ABC Solo in Nepal

How to Trek the Annapurna Base Camp in 7 Days

An Independent Guide to Trekking ABC Solo in Nepal

107 Comments /

It's amazing how time flies. Six months ago, I decided to take a leap of faith and start traveling alone, and in no time, I was in the middle of the Himalayas in Nepal, trekking for the first time in my life.

I have met many people along the way, and many had told me that I was crazy to take on the Himalayas on my first trek alone with no guide or porter. When I come to think of it, I was not crazy but I underestimated the difficulty of trekking the Himalayas. The trail was like a roller coaster. You either go up or go down, making my journey descending as equally tired as ascending.

So, today, I will relive that crazy awesome experience again and show you the beauty of the Himalayas and you will see why I did it and why you should go for it.

Accommodation

Hotel Middle Path is what made my trip smooth. The owner of the hotel managed to get me the climbing permit I needed to trek the Annapurna Base Camp before I arrived at no extra cost. If that does not impress you, how about the fact that he offered free gears for free like trekking poles. I have never seen such a great customer service before. I highly recommended this hotel if you just want to trek the beautiful Himalayan and not worrying about paperwork.

Travel Insurance

It is very important that you have a travel insurance when you are trying to tackle such a feat and the travel insurance has to cover activities such as hiking in a country like Nepal. I would recommend WorldNomads.com if you are looking to find the right kind of travel insurance for this. They have a simple and flexible search system that allows me to find the exact insurance I need for activities I am doing.

Arriving in Pokhara

Arrived in Kathmandu in the early afternoon, and I had to walk around 10 minutes to get my domestic ticket at the domestic terminal in another building.

Boarded a Yeti's airline plane and headed to Pokhara.

After arriving in Pokhara, I took a taxi to the hotel (Hotel Middle Path), and headed out to grab a few missing gears I needed for the trek. Turns out, buying gears in Nepal will save you a gazillion dollars more, than buying from your home country. Everything is cheap here.

Why am I doing this?

I woke up early in the morning, full of excitement as I prepared all my gears, grab a breakfast and headed out to the entry trail, Khare.

2 hours into my trek and my mind started to regret the decision of coming here. "I had a comfortable bed and a warm shower.. why am I doing this", I thought to myself as I climbed the stairs that seems to have no end. After awhile, I reached the first stop, the Australian camp and had lunch there as clouds started to sweep through mountains.

As it turns out, those clouds carried with them a tremendous amount of rain and it rained on me for 3 hours straight as I shivered. The raincoat was unable to protect me from the heavy shower. At one point, I had to ask for shelter at the local's house nearby because the wind was getting stronger, piercing through my skins into my bones, as I went higher.

The rain did eventually stops (for a moment) and I went on and found myself walking on the first suspension bridge on the trail. Imagine walking on a wet and extremely slippery wooden bridge with a 12kg backpack strapped to your back. It was a thriller.

The rain won't give up easily in the Himalayas. Can this be my worst day of the trip? Easy answer, no. :) I stopped at Tolka trying to power through to Landruk for my first night.

Unfortunately, I was unable to reach my goal as it was getting way too dark to walk alone, so I stayed at the last lodge in Tolka. The view of the mountains is awesome here.

New Day, New Goal

I know I'm a slow walker so I decided to start off early (6 AM) and headed out to Chhomrong. Since I was behind my schedule, I had to push harder.

So close, yet so far..

I walked through Landruk, and saw many trekkers preparing themselves for the climb.

Every time I had to descend down to the river, deep down I know that I will have to ascend all those heights again, not to mention that walking back would be as demanding.

About to cross the New Bridge. Since it's one of the longest suspension bridge in the trail, we had to go 3 at a time, to prevent the bridge from swinging way to hard.

As I walked up and down several times, I arrived at the Jhinu village (hot springs) but this was not my stop so I powered through it, and climbed what seems like a thousands of stairs (I called this ascend to Chhomrong, the Knee Breaker). It was so steep that I spent 2 - 3 hours climbing from the river bank to the top of the mountain. My first day walking in the rain seems like a child play now.

I eventually arrived at Chhomrong, and as I looked back, I realized how ambitious humans are, climbing all those mountains. No matter how slow you are, as long as you arrived, the feeling of accomplishment is still as great as climbing fast. I crashed at the first lodge I found and stayed for the night.

Should I push to Dovan or Stayed in Bamboo?

Another early morning start, I trekked down the heights I came up from yesterday and then up again the same height to Sinuwa. The other night I met a couple from Amsterdam who had the exact same schedule as me and I decided to stick with them. As I arrived at my stop and luckily got an individual room, they encouraged to push to the next stop which is only an hour and a half long. I'm now stuck with a decision to make, power through it with a chance of not getting a room (because it was late), or stay here with a room, and pushed the next day.

"What's my limit?" I asked myself this, and decided to test my strength and power through for another hour and a half. I arrived in Dovan, drained and severely dehydrated. I tried begging for a room and the lodge and most of them said it was full, until I met a lodge owner that decided to shove into into a shared room. At that point, I no longer care where I sleep, as long that I don't have to walk further.

The Worst Day Has Yet To Come

This is the hardest day on the trek, as I reached the highest altitude I have ever been at 3000m, I had a difficult time breathing and I had to stop more often and rest longer.

My planned was to go through the Himalaya and Deurali and then rest there but since many people I met are pushing through Deurali and stop at MBC, I decided to stick with them and trekked up to MBC. A trek that was suppose to be 2 hours, took me almost 4 as I struggled to breath. There were many porters (sherpas) who offered me to help carrying my bag for free, but I insisted that I can do it.

I eventually arrived and I did not regret my decision. The view was magnificent! I was like walking into the entrance of heaven. The landscapes here made me feel like insects. These mountains are magnificently humongous!

My first sight of the Annapurna South.

Without any pollution and lights coming from cities, the beauty of the stars and skies at night returns to us.. This is my first time seeing the milky way with my own eyes. It was an awe-inspiring moment.

To the Base Camp!

The next morning, I woke up at 4 to catch the sunrise at the Annapurna Base Camp. The tortures I went through had finally paid off. The view is breathtaking, but not as great as the feeling of accomplishment that swept though my body as I reached the base camp. I can proudly say, I have trekked the Himalayas alone and survived.

Like one big family! :)

Saying goodbye to the mountains and all the friends I met during the trek. It was a hell of an experience!

One last look back at the Annapurna South, I missed this place already. :(

And it was time to go.. The mountains had taught me so much about life. It was a life changing experience. I now look at our surplus societies in a different way now.

I decided to take it slow going down so that I could absorb everything in before I leave.

The Himalayas has left me wanting more..

This is my way out of the mountains. I took a 3 hours ride on a jeep out of Kimche near Landruk right back to Pokhara, rest and prepared to go home. Goodbye, and I'll be back for the Everest next time in Nepal!

That concluded our fifth entry to the Solo Traveler's Journal by BucketListly. I hope you enjoy the visual trip into the heart of the Himalayas. It was not a vacation for me, but it was worth every single sweat. The honest people you meet along the way, the transition between jungles to mountains to snow, the hardship that went into it, the limit that you pushed every day, and the feeling of accomplishing something much bigger than yourself is what counts. You have to try this at least once in your lifetime.

If you are looking to visit Nepal or trek the Himalayas and would like to know more, feel free to tweet me or leave a comment below.

Again, If you have any suggestion or recommendation on places we should visit, let us know in the comment.

Basic Itinerary

  1. Day 0: I arrived in Pokhara, went out and bought a map, a cheap sleeping bag, and a trekking pole to prepare myself for the trek.
  2. Day 1: I took a taxi to Khare (1200 rupees from Lake Side) and start climbing.
  3. 5 hours in, I passed through Australian camp (where I had lunch), Pothana and arrived at Tolka. Stayed in Tolka for a night.
  4. Day 2: I woke up early, walk through Landruk, New Bridge, Jhinu and climbed super steep stairs (I called this the Knee Destroyer stairs) to Chhomrong. Rest there for a day.
  5. Day 3: Again, I started out early in the morning, walking down mountain from Chhomrong, cross a suspension bridge and go up again through lower and upper Sinuwa. five hours in and I arrived at Bamboo for lunch and then walk for another 2 hours to Dovan and stayed there for a night.
  6. Day 4: I started out early as usual and walk to the Himalaya. Rest for a coffee and proceed to Deurali and to MBC. From the Himalaya, it’s all up and up for 5 hours so be prepared. I slept early at MBC.
  7. Day 5: I woke up at 4 and start trekking to ABC (Annapurna base camp) to witness a sunrise. Stayed for a few hours and walked down to MBC for lunch and power through Deurali, Himalaya and eventually arrived in Dovan at 6:00PM. Rested there for a night because the forest at night is scary.
  8. Day 6: I continued down the same route until I reached Chhomrong and rest there for another day.
  9. Day 7: This time, I went down the other way to Khola and up again to Kimrong Danda, had lunch and walk down to Ghandruk (beautiful village) and eventually took a jeep out (2500 rupees and 3 hours drive) from Kimche to Pokhara.

Gears to Prepare

I know you hate boring list, so I made a video of all my gears. Noted that, there are a few items that were unnecessary such as Diamox, Buff, and coffee, so don't make the same mistake and brought that up like me.

The Solo Traveler’s Journal is a series of posts by BucketListly where we will follow our founder, Pete Rojwongsuriya around the world as he singlehandedly travel alone and experience different cultures, people, and historical locations one country at a time.

Dominic Sarracco

I'm here now alone planning on going. If anyone wants to join me on the treck I would be glad. I'm not going with a guide or porter. Just me :)


Hello,

Himalayas is incredibly beautiful.

I love the way you arrange your text and pictures in this blog. It makes the readers feel that they are part of the natural scene, participating in the journey themselves. It is also very easy to follow, and there’s barely any clichés.

Personally I have never been there, but one of my friends did. In 2012, along with his partners, he rode his bike from Chengdu to the Himalayas. The journey is about 2142 kilometers. “It is like a baptism of the nature,” he told me. “You can see the milky way – that’s right, millions of stars – by the lake Namtso.”

It gives me a similar feeling while reading your blog.

Traveling is not only about seeing with your eyes, but also with your heart. It is like building a bridge between the soul and the universe, and as you proceed on, the bridge strengthens.

Sincerely,
Jinhua Wang


How much did it cost you? So you really didnt have any guide? how did you find you way along your journey?


Hi Pete, great article. I am on my own over here working but looking to take a break and leave for this trek next week. My internet is too slow to watch your video... if you have time would you be able to reccomend suitable footwear and clothes etc... I am in Pokhara so I can purchase here. Many thanks! Q


hey pete, i found your blog while searching for things to do in nepal. Your pictures are amazing thus made me decide to do the ABC trek. Planning to do it on mid feb 2015 but i only have 9 days in nepal. I want to complete the trek within 7 days as what you did, though it will be my first time. Though i'm doing it with a friend (mostly will get a local guide). Since i am also planning to take flight to pokhara the same day that i will arrive in kathmandu, and on a saturday, do you have any idea how to get necessary permits (TIMS and ACAP)? Cause i also want to start my trek the next day after my arrival in kathmandu, but read NTB are close on saturdays (kathmandu and pokhara).
Thanks in advance.


Great photos & inspiring story. I am going soon to ABC & saw your blog while doing research.


Awesome!! Thanks for writing your article, I just booked a flight to Nepal in August 2015 after 3 hours of thinking.. I'm gonna do this! And yes, SOLO


I suggest you to take a guide or a guide cum porter. I run a local agency here, if you need any help, you can write me.


Balaguru Varadan

Excellent Blog with enough details !! your pics are mind blowing..!!! me and my friends planning for the ABC trek mid of next year (May be jun-july 2015) ... We may need some help.. appreciate if you can guide us... thnks !!


Mohimur Rahman Shawon

Hi Pete. Your blog is so much informative. Thanks for sharing.
Me along with my 5 friends are planning to go to the ABC trek in first week of January, 2015. We r going to follow your trek plan. Planning to wrap up the trek in 7 days. We r not taking any porter or guide. But still there are some dilemma among us regarding the weather. We dont have any clue how much cold it could be in first week of January. Also as we r not taking any porter or guide, is there any possibility that we might end up losing the trail for the heavy snowfall? Do NTB gives permit (TIMS and ACAP) in January?
Thanks in advance :)


Lucas Bacon Burger

hi pete! your trek looks amazing!
i was wondering what time of the year you left to do the trek? i will be doing it in early january and was wondering if you heard anything about the weather that time of the year. i know its cold, but is it still visible?
thanks for sharing! :)


Aru Arunee

Hi...pete,,,,agree that u r really so crazy,,But u r awesome. Thkz for sharing ur hell experice. I love it so much. Ur fotos re so cool. I wish to be there..........someday.


Kelvin Wong

Hi, congrats on your solo!! I will have mine this coming June Solo. Just want to know whether permit is required for the trek and if yes, when did you apply? At Pohkara or other places and time required to have that done?


Catherine Colango

You're great! What an awesome experience. I dearly love how you described your journey. I'm so inspired. I have a Nepal trip by October 2015 and will do ABC by December 2015 :)


hey! would like to know if you pre-booked your flight tix from kat-pokhara or it's more advisable to buy on the spot directly from the kathmandu airport? thanks!


Marni Abu Bakar

coming on this march! I can do it, hopefully. :)


Hope it went well for you!


Hi Pete,
Loved your pictures and blog. My husband and I had a similar experience in June/July last year when we went to Nepal for the first time (as complete novices) to trek EBC. We also did it solo and hiked all the way from Jiri... We had a rough start with getting lost on the first day and ended up walking for 3 hours with head lamps in the dark through a jungle in heavy monsoon rain with frogs and leeches jumping all over us! However, after 15 more days of pretty difficult hiking we felt so attached to the mountains and the amazing Nepalese people, that I just knew I had to return to this place. It was the most amazing experience to hike up to Kala Patthar and EBC on the 13th day and literally run down from Gorakshep to Lukla in 2 days. I'm now busy planning our next trip to Nepal ... this time heading for the Annapurnas... and I just found your blog, which I found super helpful! We have very little time - only 7 days for hiking from Pokhara, so we have been toiling with the idea of whether we can or can't do ABC... Your schedule seems tight, but do-able... I hope we'll make it without any delays. We live in Bangalore (south of India) at the moment, but it still takes a day of traveling to get to Kathmandu. We can only arrive in Kathmandu at 3:30pm, so I guess that's too late to catch a flight to Pokhara on the same day. I might ask you a few more questions as I'm planning our trip... and will be happy to share any useful information about the trek from Jiri to EBC if you're interested.
Thanks again for sharing your adventures...
Mari


Jonathan Lim

Hey Pete! Awesome article! I'm planning to do a short solo trip to ABC coming March and this has helped my planning so much! Just had one question: where is the start of the trek and how did you get there!? I can't find details on Khare or start of a trek anywhere!


Hi Pete. I am big fan of your artwork! May I know what kind of camera are you using? Picture so wide, so beautiful. :)


Lee Sook Ping

Pete, lodges along the trek how much do I need to budget for 1 person per night?


Um.. it's been a while so I can't remember the actual price. What i remember though is that it's not outrageously expensive. Definitely not hotel-priced for sure. More like hostel-priced. I heard they don't make much money from beds but more from food. The food is also not super expensive even up at the base camp. It will cost you no more than what you buy in malls and good restaurants.


Brilliant blog and awesome pictures. I was thinking of going solo in a Nepal tea house trek, was a bit dubious, but man your blog made my decision for me :-). ABC it is. I think I'm gonna follow your itinerary from Pokhara

Could you please share some information with me?
1. I'm planning to go some time during Aug-Sept. Do you think it's a good/bad time? As you have mentioned in one of you replies that Oct is the peak time so can be bit difficult to get a place.
2. Which currency did you carry? Does Indian currency work there or do I need to get Nepalese Rupees?
3. Did you carry a sleeping bag or is it possible to get blankets in the tea houses?

looking forward to your reply, thanks in advance.


Craig Castle

Hi mate. amazing photos. I am thinking about doing a trek similar. How did you go with finding somewhere to stay each night. did you have to book in advance?


Nothing was booked. They always found me a place to sleep eventually. :) I'm also quite flexible as long as I can sleep.


Luv Maloo

Hi congrats on your solo..!! Even I'am planning for a solo trip to Nepal this December, can you please guide me on the same?


wow i realy exited to read u r blog ...when i red the article i felt like realy get into it.. beautiful montains ...beautiful areas.. wonderfull sky.with star...i want to go their...different kind of houses with peacefull peoples...alway sunny weather...wow great,...


The recent earthquake struck in Nepal. Trek to Annapuran is no any damgeas. It is 100% save for trek.


Jerome Sweet

Thank you for the write up. Very cool pictures.


Katja Kuegel

Great blog post with good infos. Really liked your pictures and videos. Seems like you had a great time... (besides the challenge) :) Doing the trek mid October! Getting super excited!


Hope the trek went well! :)


did you do this through a tour company or organised it and trekked yourself?


All done independantly with no guide or porter. :)


Aaron Peng

wow your photos are amazing and i like your video too ! May i ask what movie software are you using it ?


Thank you! I used Adobe Premiere.


Leilani Kiros

Wow. Amazing pictures.

Thank you so much for posting this. I am trying to put together an itinerary for myself on doing the same thing. Like you, I want to go solo. How difficult was it? How did you navigate yourself around the area? Were there plenty of signs and other climbers to help guide you along the way? Any help and suggestions would be great!


Thank you! It was not very difficult on the hindsight (like everthing is) but I remember getting lost for a bit on the first part before the trail merges. I basically just waited for someone to walk pass and asked. :) The concentration of climbers will depend on when you are going there. I was at the beginning of a high season so they were many people tackling the trail early. When you are at Pokhara, remember to buy a map. That will save you a lot of time and headaches.

The trail after is pretty straight forward to follow. The problem now though is the thin air and breathing. I had problems beathing after 3000m above sea level.

Signs are not as frequent like you see in Europe or the US but it was enough for me to know where i'm heading.

I hope these help. If not, feel free to ask me anytime.


hi! perfect pictures!! can't wait to go there! in which month did you do the trekking?


Thank you! I did it in late October. Perfect timing for me. It rained on me once. :)


Is it possible to do this trek in Mid December? Are the tea houses open at that time?


My friend that is curently there told me yes with good simple snow gears (no need for advanced gear like ice ax or crampons), but he is unsure about the tea houses. He was doing some other trek and it was closed so he had to beg the local to host him that day.


Susin Lim

What beautiful photos!


Asma Ahmed

Hi Pete, gorgeous photos and an inspiring trek! I'm looking to do ABC this March. My first time to Nepal and first trek also. Do you see any major benefits of doing a guide vs going solo? Also, do you remember how much your plane ticket to/from Kathmandu - Pokhara was? Thanks for your post!


Hey Asma, Thank you for the reply! Having a guide is always good when it comes to getting a place to sleep. They usually have a place for you when you arrive at the mountain huts but when I went solo, I really had to beg sometime when the hut is full and it was dark already. They always find a place for me though so it wasn't that difficult going solo.


Hello , I think you had great experience,but normally trekker do ABC trek in 9 to 12 days, but you have great stamina...all the besr


Thank you for the comment Selva. I planned my own route and go straight to the base camp so that was why I was able to go much faster than most. :)


P Nitta Nutsatit

Accidentally found your blog via google search result and saw your Thai passport in your Packing video.
Just wanna say thank you for sharing na ka :) I can feel the moment when you reached the top, it was overwhelmed! I'm planning to go there this Songkran ka. Thanks for all these cool informations ka!


Thank you from the comment Nitta! Let us know how it goes during Songkran! I want to go back there soon myself!


Jesse Emancipation

How awesome and inspiring! Your pictures are all stunning! I'm planning to follow the path you took.


Thank you Jesse! Let us know how it goes! :)


Erin Hobson

What are u doing now? My 19yr old son is doing same thing u did an doing it solo but as u say, meeting lots of like minded trekkers on the way.. Good on u an thanks for sharing ur wonderful adventure


Hi Erin, thank you for the comment. It's awesome that your son is doing this. It really had a big impact on me and taught me so much and I hope it does for your son too. :) I'm currently traveling in Sri Lanka right now. :)


Emanuel Maia

I am going there soon, i am in delhi what are the timelines and costs for all


I can't remember the total cost but it was cheaper than I expected. Spending around 1500 - 2500 nepalese rupees should be enough for food and accomodation only. Permits and some transporation cost extra.


Beckie Wong

Silvester Ti


how much are the lodges usually?? This looks like an awesine experience!! Gotta do it!


Not expensive at all, 1500 - 2500 rupees per day for accmodation and food should be enough.


I wanna do it.... really. I heard the mountain calling hard for me. Its been a year wishing to be here... One day... I'll do it...


The pictures are so gorgeous! What camera did you use ??


Thank you! I use the Sony RX100 :)


Tamanna Tabassum Broty

Hey, really nice writing with amazing images.
I am flying to Nepal. And hopefully starting for ABC on 25th September. Just 4days to go. I have found this very helpful.
Would you please tell me in which month you were there?
Thanks.


Thank you! I was there in late October. :)


Really beautiful, it motivates people like me. I have a plan to make it on April'17. Pl comments as suggestion.


Definitely Himalayas are the awesome place that anyone without thinking for a second wants to go there. But as you said you went to Annapurna base camp without any guidance was the moment mt jaws went up. But it is the faith that get you there. We should always keep questioning about our own spirit and strength. To know what really we can do.
The photos you shared are amazing.


Shubham Pathak

Hey did you get sponsored by Accenture for this ?


I wish! It was up there when was there


Thanks for the sharing, next month i'll do the same as you did

I am planing for August 12, how it will be?

Hey Sanal, unfortunately, August is their monsoon season so you will be dealing with muddy trails, humidity, and bad weather, but there are chances that you might have good weather too, so don't lose hope. :)


Montana

This was very inspiring! My boyfriend and I just did the ABC trek in seven days, thanks to your guidance and itinerary. We very much appreciated your advice! Happy traveling :)

Thank you Montana. I'm glad you find the guide useful! I'm bound to be back this month in Nepal doing some trekking as well so it will be like traveling down a memory lane like this trip I made 5 years ago. :) Safe travels!


Sumit kar replying to Gunjan Kapoor
Is it possible to do this trek in Mid December? Are the tea houses open at that time?

can you tell me what would be the approx cost of the whole trek???pokhra to pokhra


can you tell me what would be the approx cost of the whole trek???pokhra to pokhra

Hey Sumit, It's been a few years for me so the price may have increased by now but from what I remember, the accommodation is around 1000 Rupees per day and the permit is 4000 Rupees. The food should range from 500 - 1200 rupees depending on where you eat. The higher in elevation, the more expensive. I hope these help!
