Annapurna Base Camp Trek (Solo), Nepal

ANNAPURNA BASE CAMP TREK, NEPAL

SOLO AND SELF GUIDED TREK

When I visited Pokhara in 2013 and I saw first time the Mt. Macchapucchre and Annapurana from Sangarkot View Point, Pokhara that time I did not know much about the Himalayas. After doing some treks in Himachal Pradesh, Leh and Uttrakhand in 2016, I decided to do Solo Annapura Base Trek in 2017. I gathered some information of Annapura Base Camp from Internet and booked my Flight for Kathamndu.

I didn’t hire any guide as there is no need and I found that 2000 NPR to 2500 *NPR per day for a guide fee is expensive because I was doing this trek Solo. The trail of ABC is navigable and readable without a detailed map.

*NPR stands for Nepali Currency.
