Information of Annapurna Conservation Area Project

Annapurna Conservation Area project (ACAP) is the largest conservation area of Nepal located in the north center of Nepal.It was founded in 2049 B.S. (1992 A.D.) and covers 7629 square kilometers. The Mustang valley, the Kali Gandaki River, the Marsyangdi Valley, and the Pokhara Valley from its northern, eastern, western, and southern borders are respectively bounded.

This project was started by the non-governmental “National Trust for Nature Conservation” (also known as the King Mahendra Trust for Nature Conservation) and funded by numerous international trusts. The National Trust for Nature Conservation (NTNC) and the local community are currently responsible for maintaining this project. Ghandruk serves as the ACAP's administrative center.

Where is Annapurna Base Camp located?

Here is some information to help you go to Annapurna Base Camp from Kathmandu if you're wondering how. One of Nepal's best and most well-known tourist destinations is Pokhara. By air or land, it is conveniently reachable from Kathmandu. It is located in the west, 200 kilometers from Kathmandu. It takes about 6-7 days to get from Pokhara to the start of the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. Even though there are numerous starting and ending points, trekking itineraries are always adjustable, so it may take a bit longer or less. At Nayapul, you will typically travel in a private vehicle for 1.5 hours along the Pokhara-Baglung road. From there, you will make the first night of your walk to Ulleri, the largest Village in the area. Following that, you will travel through Ghorepani, Tadapani, Chomrong, Dovan, Deurali, and Machhapuchhre Base Camp on your way to Annapurna Base Camp during the following few days. Great panoramic mountain views can be seen at Annapurna base camp.

 Cost of a trek permit to Annapurna Base Camp

The Annapurna Base Camp Trek is located within the Annapurna Conservation Area, hence a TIMS (Trekkers Information Management System) card and entrance charge of ACAP are required. With the exception of the Nar Phu Valley Trek and the Upper Mustang Trek, both of these permits are required for your trek to the Annapurna Region. These two licenses are available for purchase from a recognized trekking company or the tourism board (Bhrikuti Mandap). These two permits must be carried by you at all times while on the trek and must be displayed at each checkpoint along the route to Annapurna Base Camp. If you don't have these trekking permits, you'll need to acquire them there and pay twice the price (a penalty), or you might have to turn around.

TIMS (Trekkers Information Management System) is compulsory for everyone to trek in Annapurna region

It Cost US$ 20 per person/ per Trek

Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) entry permits

It cost US$ 30 only per person/ per trek

The government has instilled these two permits from Kathmandu and Pokhara.

 Food and accommodation in Annapurna Base Camp trek.

In Nepal, after Everest Base Camp Trekking, the Annapurna Region is the second most popular trekking location. There are various trekking routes, but the best one is the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. The Annapurna Conservation Area initiative and the local people supervise the excellent management of the Annapurna Base Camp Trekking Trail.

 Since new homes are built every year and more rooms are added for hikers, there are many hotels and eateries located along the trekking route. Therefore, it would be simple for you to locate comfortable lodging in the Annapurna region. Nearly every tea house tries to provide the best service for every traveler. If you need a luxury lodge, they offer luxury accommodation but luxury accommodations are on some places and there are limited lodges. Typically, lodges provide private rooms (2 beds in one room) for clients with shared indoor bathrooms. The lodge quality varies depending on the location, so you may choose the one that fits your needs and budget the best.

Every hotel has a food menu, and the items are essentially the same. Although we strongly advise you try the traditional Nepali cuisine "Dal-Bhat" (boiled rice, vegetable, and lentil soup), you are free to select something else from the menu. The majority of hotels cultivate their own fresh vegetables for their guests to enjoy. The cooks are generally trained; however the food may not taste something quite western. It is best to avoid eating meat during the Annapurna Base Camp hike because it is difficult to find fresh meat in the mountains.

Every lodge sells a variety of drinks, but the costs increase as you travel higher. When using purification pills, you can drink regular water. When you are going higher altitude, stay away from alcoholic beverages.

Best Time to Trek to Annapurna Base Camp

For Annapurna Base Camp, there are two main trekking seasons. The two best trekking seasons are in the fall (September to December) and spring (March to May). Even so, the Annapurna base camp Trek is at its best from the beginning of September to the end of May. In contrast to other trekking seasons, the weather is ideal—it is sunny and warm with beautiful mountain vistas, clear air, and no rain or snow.

This trip can be taken throughout the winter (January and February) if you want to avoid crowds and enjoy some solitary time with nature and culture. For the majority of hikers, winter temperatures may be a bit chilly, but visibility is generally good. Although it rains from June to August, this is the ideal time of year for those who love the outdoors. Due to several landslides along the trekking trail, going to Annapurna Base Camp during the beginning of spring poses a significant risk. Because of this, depending on your vacations, you can choose the ideal season for an Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

Communication in the Annapurna Region

Nepal's Annapurna area is a well-known hiking destination. The entire Annapurna region trekking area, as well as popular destinations including Nar Phu Valley, Tilicho Lake, and Saribung Pass Trekking, have decent mobile network and internet connections. Although the entire region will have access to the internet, teahouses and lodges charge a little fee for this service. Our guide will assist you in passing the message if you don't have a Nepali SIM card and aren't using the internet because he always has a cell phone and contacts the Kathmandu trekking office to inform them of the trek and your health status. We also assist with any problems that may arise while on the trek.

Traveling is vital in life, thus we take care to keep you safe and healthy when you trek through Nepal. The majority of Nepal's trekking routes now have mobile network connection, so you may purchase a local SIM card there after landing to utilize the 3G and 4G internet. If you require Nepali SIM for your journey, we may offer one for you; however, you must inform us prior to starting the trek.


When traveling to higher elevations in the high Himalayan region, high altitude sickness is a regular problem. Although it develops fairly quickly, the symptoms can be avoided. If you have prior high-altitude trekking experience, it might be preferable, but if not, you should take precautions to avoid high-altitude sickness if you plan to walk over three thousand meters. In order to avoid altitude sickness while trekking in Nepal, you should walk carefully, drink enough water, abstain from alcohol, ascend higher, and sleep at low elevation. You should also spend two nights for every 500 meters over the elevation of 3500 meters. All of our trekking routes are adaptable and include days for acclimatization. Your health and safety come first so that you may complete the trek without incident. In case things worse, we give you some essential medications to help with an emergency rescue.

As a result, you must advise your Guide or Leader of your health status each day. Based on his reaction, he will decide whether or not to let you continue on your trip.

Tipping Information:

During your tour, trekking, and other activities in Nepal, the guide, porter, driver, and all other employees who work in the tourism industry expect tips. Tipping is how customers evaluate service providers, and service providers accept tips at the end of a journey. Travelers often tip 10% of their billable amount, but you can give more or less depending on the quality of the service.

Therefore, it is crucial that the High Pass Adventure working team takes good care of you at all times while you are visiting Nepal, is inspired by exceptional service, and provides inspirational once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

 Trip Extension:

After finishing the walk, if you have extra time, you can engage in other activities or go on another quick trek in Nepal. Chitwan National Park and Bardiya National Park for jungle safari excursions are only two of our many short travel packages and adventure activities. You can go sightseeing in Pokhara, go trekking in Nagarkot or Dhampus, or go rafting for the day on the Trisuli River.

Paragliding, kayaking, ultra light flight, bungee jumping, and mountain biking are examples of adventure sports. These are all optional add-on activities to your package that are not included in the price. If you choose to participate in these activities with us after your vacation, we will organize them at a fair price and give you a generous discount.

Trekking gear list:

Before departing, you must pack your trip necessities. We hope it would be too much for you to transport from your country to another, but some of the necessary equipment may be rented or purchased in Kathmandu's Thamel area. While trekking in Nepal, this basic gear is appropriate for all seasons, though it may vary depending on the season and length of the trekking routes you choose to take.

Getting There: Nepal 

Between China's Tibet Autonomous Region and India, Nepal is a landlocked Himalayan nation. It has eight of the top ten mountains in the world, including Mount Everest. There are numerous points from China and India where one can enter Nepal by land. Tourist visas for Nepal are available on arrival at all Indian and Chinese borders if you are traveling there by land. There are numerous foreign airlines providing nonstop connecting flights to Nepal if you're arriving by air. Nepal Airlines, Turkish Air, Thai Airways, Gulf Air, Qatar Air, Jet Airways, Air India, Biman Bangladesh, Lufthansa, Oman Air, Travel Dubai, Air Arabia, and Air China are a few of the well-known airlines that fly to Nepal. From China or India, one can also go overland. Please check your flight and get in touch with us before arriving in Nepal. At the airport in Nepal, you can easily obtain a on arrival visa.

Visa and passport information

Except for Indian passport holders, all foreign visitors to Nepal need a visa; however, you must have a passport with a six-month validity date in order to apply for a tourist visa. At the Tribhuvan International Airport and the Chinese-Indian border in Tibet, visas are available on arrival. To apply for a visa to enter Nepal, you must have a color photograph in PP size. Please click this link for more details about Visa Information. 

Money exchange rate and prices

If you're seeking for the best foreign exchange rates and locations in Nepal, you may easily exchange the majority of your foreign currency at a local bank or authorized money exchange facility in a well-known tourist destination. The Nepal Rastra Bank controls all exchange rates (Center Bank of Nepal). You can exchange small amounts of money at the hotel if you want to. Because our banks will not take dirty or old notes, kindly bring clean and fresh notes.

In order to avoid the time-consuming processes associated with cards and traveler's checks, Nepalese people typically prefer cash in hotels, restaurants, shopping malls, and other locations. You can use an ATM to get cash (in Nepali Rupees) if you have a credit or debit card. In the main tourist city, there are a number of ATM counters with 24-hour service. If you use a card, the maximum withdrawal amount is between 30,000 and 35,000 rupees at once, plus a processing fee of 500 rupees. 

You must convert your money in Kathmandu or Pokhara before the hike because the majority of trekking routes do not offer a facility for international currency exchange. Additionally, inquire about the amount of money required for a Himalayan trek from your trekking operator or guide.

Safety and security

When traveling in Nepal, safety and security are crucial issues to consider both on the way to in and out. We are here for you at all times, and we promise to provide the greatest service to all of our cherished clients. Our guides have extensive training in the field of trekking and broad understanding of first aid items. Because it rises more than 4000 m above sea level, it is essential for hiking in Nepal. Because health is crucial, if a trekker becomes ill from the high altitude, our knowledgeable guide discusses the necessary medications and decides to continue the trek while organizing the emergency rescue.

You must be cautious when hiking trails pass one other because they are not wide enough to do so. During the busiest trekking season, there are lots of porters, yaks, mules, and Jokpe along the trail. You must stay on the safe side if you encounter them on a bridge or in a confined space because otherwise they may force you over the edge.

Safe drinking water

For a healthy body while traveling and staying hydrated, clean water is essential. It will be the most effective method of completing the Himalayan journey. If not, getting sick and having diarrhea is simple. Almost everywhere during the Nepalese tea house trip, but not during the camping trek, sells bottled water. Unfortunately, bottled water is very pricey. 

Please bring good water bottles (for boiling water) and water purification tablets or water filter bottles since plastic bottles are detrimental for the environment. Reusable water bottles are a good idea because they help keep the mountain clean. If you are concerned about finding a typical water tap to fill up your bottles in the trekking region of Nepal, they are very simple to locate. It can be found in rivers, streams, and lodges.

Travel insurance and insurance policy

Nepal hiking tours: The difficulty levels of the Himalayas range from easy to tough. As a result of the Himalayan climate changing, there is a risk of high altitude and potential mishap. 

Trekking in the Nepalese Himalayas demands practical trekking abilities at high altitudes (above 4,000 meters), so travel insurance is essential. If an accident occurs during a trip and requires medical attention or evacuation, the cost of returning to a city and receiving treatment may be significant. Therefore, you must ensure that your insurance covers the price of an air ambulance, medical care, and any risks associated with travel, such as delayed flights and lost, stolen, damaged, or missing baggage. Your complete itinerary while visiting Nepal should be covered by your insurance policy. Make sure your insurance policy covers hikes higher than 5,500 meters. If not, you will be responsible for all unforeseen costs associated with your trek through Nepal. 

All trekkers must send a copy of their certificate from their comprehensive travel insurance policy to High Pass Adventure as part of the booking process for trekking and climbing in Nepal.

High altitude sickness information

Mountain sickness is another name for high altitude sickness. You must be aware of high altitude sickness symptoms since they arise rapidly if you hike or ascend to a higher elevation. Here are some details if you're curious as to why it occurs. The air pressure is the main cause of altitude sickness. Your body needs time to adapt to the shift in air pressure when you travel to higher elevations since the air pressure decreases and there is less oxygen present. According to doctors, If you are at sea level, it begins at 8,000 feet (2400 meters).

1) Types 

There are three types of altitude sickness:

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS): it is very common and symptoms feel like a tiredness, dizzy, headache, thirsty, muscle aches, nausea 

High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE): it is effect in the lungs, which can be very dangerous and hard to do life threatening

High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE): it is effective in the brain and most difficult to treat and you need to go to hospital attention the right way. 

2) Cause 

Following are the causes of high altitude sickness:

Generally living near sea level and travel to a high elevation 

Had the sickness before

Climbing quickly

Not being acclimatized to the altitude

Drinking alcohol when you ascend 

Medical problems of heart, nervous or lungs 

3) Symptoms

These symptoms will appear depending on your speed to climb and how hard you push. Symptoms range from normal to serious. They can affect the nervous system, lungs, muscles, and heart.

Here are symptoms of High Altitude Sickness:

Difficulty sleeping




Loss of appetite

Nausea or vomiting

Rapid Pulse (Heart Rate)

Short breath with action

Blue color of skin or gray soft skin 

Chest tightness or blocking


Dry cough or coughing with blood

Cannot walk in a straight line 

4) Prevention 

Important keys to preventing of High Altitude Sickness are:

Climb the mountain gradually. 

Stop every 2,000 feet (600 meters) of climb above 8,000 feet (2,400 meters) and one or two nights sleep there.

Sleep at a lower altitude when possible.

Make sure that you have the ability to quickly descend if needed.

Learn how to recognize early symptoms of mountain sickness.

If you plan on climbing quickly, or climbing to a high altitude, ask your provider about medicines that may help.

If you are at risk for a low red blood cell count (anemia), ask your provider if your planned trip is safe. Also ask if an iron supplement is right for you. Anemia lowers the amount of oxygen in your blood. This makes you more likely to have mountain sickness.

5) While climbing, you should follow these rules:

Drink plenty of water

Climb slowly.

Take it easy

Do not drink alcohol.

Eat regular meals that are high in carbohydrates.

Sleep lower elevation 

Take a medication (diomax) according to doctor
