Overview

Annapurna North Base Camp Trek

Trekking to Annapurna North Base Camp is highly recommended for those who are interested in exploring less explored areas in the famous Annapurna region. Before 1950, no mountains higher than 8000 meters had ever been climbed French expedition team led by Maurice Herzog and Louis Lachenal climbed Annapurna I for the first time in history in 1950.

The expedition group intended to climb either Dhaulagiri 8167 meters or Annapurna I (8091 meters). The team initially attempts to find a route to either Dhaulagiri or Annapurna. After deciding that Dhaulagiri was too difficult, they made their way to the North Face of Annapurna.

The French North Face Route is the easy route. They reached the summit of Annapurna without oxygen. The trek down to Annapurna was a significant challenge and adventure for them. On the way down, we avoided snowstorms, avalanches, and other mishaps. The group barely made it back to camp. 

Annapurna has not climbed again until the British Army expedition climbed it in 1970 from the base camp side of Annapurna North. Mountain lovers and adventurous people are now exploring Annapurna North Base Camp despite the difficult trail. Such a unique experience awaits you. For those who love wilderness trekking,

Nepal Wilderness Trekking Team offers this new trekking itinerary to the base camp of Annapurna I on the northwest side. Despite the difficulty of the trek, it gives you the opportunity to explore the beauty of the Himalayas with different panoramic views. Annapurna I, Nilgiri, Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Machhepuchare, Dhaulagiri, Natural hot springs, and Gurung culture are some of the main highlights of this trek.

We begin our journey from Pokhara and drive to Nayapul, following the Ghorepani Poon Hill route. On our third day, we reach Mohare Danda, Palate, Narchayng, and the north base camp of Annapurna I.

We trek through Kalokhola, Phulbari, and pasture near the base camp. On the ninth day of our trek, we reach the base camp. Returning from the base camp takes about three to four days. We can return via Lete of lower Mustang. There is no lodge or hotel along the new trekking route, so tourists may have a difficult time navigating the journey. Adventure trekkers and photographers will enjoy this trek. To take care of our clients, we provide highly qualified and experienced trekking guides and sherpas.

Annapurna North Base Camp Trekking is a less-explored and more pristine trekking trail compared with an Annapurna Sanctuary trek in the Annapurna region. For those seeking an alternative trek in the Annapurna region, this trek offers an adventure experience that is as unique as it is exhilarating

The Annapurna Rural Municipality (ARM) group explored this route in 2019. Trekking associations like the Trekking Agency Association of Nepal (TAAN), the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP), and the Ministry of Tourism is promoting this historic trek route to various groups, travel agencies, and individual trekkers.
