Food & Accomodation:

Food and Accommodation at the 10-day Annapurna Circuit Trek

Since the Annapurna region is located in a rural section of the nation, there are no five-star hotels there, yet we can nevertheless offer first-rate hotels and lodges. The majority of the teahouses have twin-sharing arrangements, while single bedrooms can be arranged upon request.

Food is necessary during the hike. The primary source of energy for this expedition is food burning. In Nepalese, the phrase “Dal Bhat power, 24 hours” refers to the ability to endure for practically a day after consuming dal bhat. The national dish is dal bhat, however, other dishes can be made, including vegetable and noodle soups.

We advise you to stay away from dairy items, hard drinks, and beverages with a lot of caffeine since they could be harmful to your physiology and health at higher altitudes.

These could include daily walking, going on hikes, taking a big walk once a week, practicing breathing techniques connected to yoga, etc.

Best Time for 10-day Annapurna Circuit Trek

Annapurna Circuit Trek is thought to be most enjoyable in the spring and fall. The best climate is reached during the spring season, which runs from February to April. You are welcomed by the sight of springtime’s flowering rhododendron and lush, green woodlands. The blossoming plants and stunning mountain views are at their peak during this time of year. At lower elevations, it is warm and moderate; as you ascend higher, it becomes colder.

Similarly, the ideal period for the Annapurna Circuit Trek is during the autumn, which lasts from September to November. The enormous snow-covered mountains are stunning throughout the autumn when the skies are typically clear. Daytime temperatures are quite consistent. It can get a little chilly at night and in the early morning. But the trek is pleasant on bright, sunny days.

The rainy season, which lasts from early June to late August, can be used to complete the Annapurna Circuit Trek, though it is not generally recommended. The weather during this season can shift rapidly from clear to wet. Since there is no snow during this season and one can enjoy the monsoon together with the rough mountain environment, the period is not the toughest.

Tipping During the Trekking

Tipping is a personal way for you to express appreciation for your services. You may want to leave a tip for the services you appreciate, or you may just want to express your gratitude in Nepali by saying “DHANYABAD.”

The final day of the vacation is typically when tips are given. Similar to this, trekkers are free to tip a hotel, lodge, or individual on whatever day they choose. Tipping is purely a matter of personal preference and perspective.


Altitude Sickness and Acclimatization

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) symptoms can appear at elevations above 2000 meters above sea level because there is less oxygen in the air, which makes breathing difficult. The signs and symptoms of AMS include nausea, fatigue, headache, and dizziness.

Keep in mind that the Annapurna Circuit Trek will take you above 5000 meters, so there is a high chance to get AMS. To help your body adjust to the thin air, walk gradually and gently. There is a danger that you could develop AMS if you try to move quickly and cover a large area at a high altitude. To prevent the situation from getting worse, vigilance should be exercised. Drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated, and eat a balanced diet of foods to help your body feel more energized.

Travel Insurance

A quality travel insurance policy that provides adequate coverage for all of your activities is crucial for the Annapurna Circuit Trek. During the journey, anything may happen. Even though we are more concerned with safety, accidents and emergencies can sometimes happen where we are going.

Physical injuries, helicopter evacuation, medical costs, and any other situations you can face while trekking should all be covered by your travel insurance policy.

Drinking Water on Annapurna Circuit Trek

Trekkers must drink plenty of water to keep their bodies hydrated and avoid altitude sickness (AMS) (Acute Mountain Sickness). Three to four liters of water per day should be consumed while trekking around Annapurna Circuit.

Instead of purchasing bottled water, we strongly advise you to carry one reusable water container that can hold hot water. In addition to being pricey, bottled water might cause severe issues in the Annapurna region. Water purification tablets can be used to clean water. But after taking tablets, the flavor will change. Water should always be consumed after sufficient cleansing. Both the teahouse and the tent have access to boiled water.

Entrance Permit and Requirement

  • TIMS (Tourist Information Management System) card.
