Excellent out of season trek to Annapurna Base Camp by private journey

We opted for a private journey to Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) starting a few weeks after the end of the main trekking season. The paths were therefore much less busy than in peak season; the trek to ABC may be the most popular trek in Nepal due to its accessibility and the stunning closeness of the high mountains when within the beautiful Annapurna Sanctuary.

We opted for a private journey to Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) starting a few weeks after the end of the main trekking season. The paths were therefore much less busy than in peak season; the trek to ABC may be the most popular trek in Nepal due to its accessibility and the stunning closeness of the high mountains when within the beautiful Annapurna Sanctuary. The lodges and tea houses were also generally fairly quiet, making it a relaxing and peaceful holiday. The weather was good throughout, sunny for most of most days. We were walking in thin walking shirts from late morning onwards at lower altitudes and thermal underwear higher up. Evenings and nights were cold at this time of year but with the kit we had taken with us supplemented by that provided by the local agent, we never felt overly cold. Our guide and two porters did everything for us that we could have wished for.

Rating for tour operator:

Mountain Kingdoms were easy to deal with when booking. They used high quality local agents and are clearly respected by the local agents as being good to deal with; this is always encouraging to know. The kit provided was exceptionally good (sleeping bags and inners, soft pillows, down jacket and hot water bottles each evening). The itinerary was excellent; we took a day longer to get to Base Camp then several other parties we encountered but preferred the less hectic pace and better opportunities to appreciative the closeness of the mountains by having more time available to us.
