Additional Information

With this, you might get well-known about the Annapurna Sanctuary Itinerary and how Blue Lake Camp helps you with the package. Here is additional information you need to know for the trek.

Best time to have Annapurna Sanctuary Trek Nepal

To enjoy the trek to the fullest, it needs proper planning in which the best time comes as a top priority. During the peak seasons, the routes are often busy and can cause difficulty throughout the trek if it is not planned properly.

Booking with Blue Lake Adventure can get you a proper trek with proper planning so that you can enjoy the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek without running through difficulties.

Talking about the best time for trekking to ABC, autumn, and spring season are the best seasons. Summer and winter are not considered the best seasons because summer receives unexpected rainfall, and the scenery we want to enjoy gets dull. In contrast, nights are colder and can go below 0 degrees Celsius. Also, the time is dry so we don’t get to see lush forests and picturesque villages.

So why is autumn the best time for trekking to Annapurna Sanctuary? Autumn is considered the best time for the Annapurna Sanctuary Trekking because it offers clear visuals as the skies are clear and the weather is more stable.

With clear skies, you can enjoy stunning views of mountain ranges like Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Macchapuchhre, etc. Also, with stable weather comes suitable temperatures. Autumn offers the best temperature suitable for hiking through the terrains, terraced fields, and landscapes of the Annapurna region.

In addition, you can also enjoy the beautiful lush alpine forests and picturesque villages this season. The waterfalls and streams add even more beauty to the scenery during the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek.

Spring, on the other hand, equally gives the best experience of trekking to Annapurna Sanctuary. In addition to the stable weather and better temperature for hiking, it even offers beautiful views of rhododendron forests on the route.

Throughout the trekking moments, there won’t be a single time you won’t get to see stunning views. Whether it’s the view of mountain ranges, lush rhododendron forests, waterfalls, or picturesque villages, this season has everything to make the trek perfect.

But how do you manage the crowds in the peak seasons? Trekkers around the world would prefer to have the trek in the best seasons because the trek is easier in comparison to trekking in the Everest region.

To avoid the crowds and enjoy the best time trekking Annapurna Sanctuary, you can book the package with Blue Lake Adventure.

How difficult is the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek Nepal?

If it is compared to the Everest Base Camp Trek, the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek is relatively easy. But the routes can be tougher as we have to walk through lush forests and walk on steep roads.

If you are a beginner and haven’t had any treks in Nepal, then you have to be cautious about the high elevation and walking through the landscapes of Nepal. But if you have trekked on the lands of Nepal, then the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek is easy to accomplish.

The main difficulties lie with high altitude as we have to reach the Annapurna Base Camp, which lies at an elevation of 4,130m. With high elevation, there are risks of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Without proper plans for trekking, there can be a high possibility of getting mountain sickness.

For that, acclimatization is essential. Blue Lake Adventure will take care of all the planning before embarking on the trek so you can get the hike without worrying about difficulties.

Fitness plays an important role in difficulties in trekking to Annapurna Sanctuary. With a good fitness level and the ability to trek for 5-6 hours a day at a normal pace, you can easily have the trek. But if you can’t trek for 5-6 hours a day, then it can cause you more difficulties.

If you are planning to have an Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, then you must actively participate in fitness activities starting today.

Foods and Accommodation in Sanctuary Trek

During the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, you can have a variety of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Some of the popular foods available during the trek are:

  • Dal Bhat: It is a staple food of Nepal and a common dish along the trek. It contains steamed rice (bhat) served with a lentil soup (dal) and various side dishes like vegetables, pickles and sometimes meat.
  • Momos: One of the popular dishes of Nepal that is taken not just as a snack but also as breakfast and dinner in Nepal. These are dumplings filled with either vegetables, meat, or cheese.
  • Noodles and Pasta
  • Eggs (Scrambled, fried, boiled, or as omelets)
  • Tea/coffee
  • Snacks (chocolate bars and energy bars available at teahouses and small shops along the trail.)

The available accommodations in the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek are Teahouses and Lodges in the trekking area and tourist-standard hotels in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

Teahouses are the most common form of accommodation along the trek they offer clean and sanitary rooms with twin beds and a common bathroom. The teahouses provide communal dining areas where you can enjoy meals together with the trekking companion.

On the other hand, lodges have slightly more comfortable rooms with private bathrooms and hot showers. During the trek, in larger villages, we can have our stay at the lodge.

With Blue Lake Adventure, you can get proper healthy meals and clean hygiene rooms so you don’t have to worry about it throughout the trek.
