Departure details
  • Traveller pickup is offered.
  • Himalayan Glacier's representative will be there at the airport holding the company's placard. He will pick you up and escort you to your designated hotel in a private comfortable vehicle.
  • Airports:
  • Tribhuvan Airport, Kathmandu Nepal
Additional information
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • For the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, there will be one leader, assistant leader (4 trekkers:1 assistant guide) and porters for carrying luggage (2 trekkers:1 porter) This arrangement ensures that should anybody in the group become sick, the trip can still go ahead as planned. We can run the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek for groups of any size, but usually, it is a maximum of twelve people as we've found this to be the optimum size for a successful trip. However, if you'd like to book this trip for a large group then that can be arranged too.
  • All meals will be provided during trekking while only breakfast will be available in Kathmandu and Pokhara. There will also be welcome and farewell dinners for guests. The most common cuisines in most menu will be Nepalese, Tibetan, Indian and the more common continental.
  • Autumn (Sept. to Nov.) and Spring (March to May) are the best seasons for this trek. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. If you wish to avoid crowds and enjoy some alone time with nature, then taking this trip during winter (Dec., Jan., Feb.) could also be an option.
  • You are likely to walk for 6-7 hours each day over steep hilly terrain on usually rough trails but no real extremes of weather. Moderate trails entail reaching up to 4,130 m with daily ascends of around 400-700m. You will also be facing high altitude air with low level of oxygen on some days and are therefore required to have a positive attitude and be physically fit. Previous hiking or camping experience is preferable.
  • Your safety is of paramount concern while traveling with Himalayan Glacier. Please note that your leader has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the itinerary if it is deemed necessary due to safety concerns. Every effort will be made to keep to the above itinerary; however, since this adventure entails travelling in remote mountainous regions, we cannot guarantee that we will not deviate from it. Weather conditions, health condition of a group member, unexpected natural disasters, etc., can all contribute to changes in the itinerary. The leader will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but please be prepared to be flexible if required.
  • We will be accommodated in Yatri Suites & Spa or Hotel Moonlight or Similar in Kathmandu, Mount Kailash Resort in Pokhara and teahouses during the trek. All accommodations are on twin-shared basis. Single supplement will be served on request and will cost an additional USD 425. We will have rooms with attached washrooms in most parts of the trek but this is not possible in a few remote locations. Also understand that single rooms are not easily available in higher elevations like they are in Kathmandu and the lower elevation regions.

I have just completed the trip of a lifetime trekking to Annapurna Base Camp with my guide Jaya. Although the weather was challenging for the first few days he managed our schedule perfectly

Jaya should write a book on client service. He understood and responded to all of my needs and then some. He was very safety conscious so that I was never concerned. He always had a super nice rrom ready for our arrival and made sure food and drinks were hot and tasty. I owe my wonderful experience to him. THANK YOU Jaya
