Best time for Budget Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Generally, the best time to embark on the ABC Trek is October. However, we suggest trekking in the months of March-May and September-November. In these months, you can expect the weather to be clear with blue skies. However, because of the peak trekking season, the trail is full of trekkers. To avoid the crowd during the trek, you can do this trek in early March or early September. Picking up the right time is always important.

Accommodation during the ABC Trek

Accommodations in most of the trekking in the Annapurna Region are quite similar. You will stay in the tea houses where they provide you with simple beds with warm blankets and pillows. Likewise, some tea houses have attached bathrooms whereas some have shared bathrooms along the journey. At the Base Camp, there are only a few numbers of Tea houses. Therefore, getting private rooms is nearly impossible. Trekkers must share the room with other people at the Base Camp Tea houses.

Nepali currency during the trek

Always carry extra Nepali currency during the ABC trek. There are no available ATMs. Moreover, small tea houses can’t exchange any USD or Euro at a good rate. Therefore, carry at least USD 25 equivalent to NPR per day.
