For Annapurna Circuit Trekking, you have to bring hiking boots, trousers, wind and water proof jacket and trousers, down jacket, sun glasses, hat, flash light, water bottle, refillable water and positive attitude. As it is difficult to find the charging port in high mountains, you need to bring back-up for your camera and mobile phones. Crown Himalaya Treks will arrange comprehensive medical kit for the trekkers.

This is very physical trip, meaning you will be walking on rough terrain, so pack as lightly as possible. Crown Himalaya Trek provide an experienced porter on (2 trekkers: 1 porter) basis. Your trekking gear will be carried by the porter in a duffel bag; the maximum of 15 kgs are carried by porters – 30 kgs by 2 porters. You can stock your unnecessary luggage in Kathmandu on absolutely free of cost.

Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness is the unusual physical condition that occurs at higher elevation (more than 2,000m) due to change in air pressures. The symptoms are nausea, diarrhea, dizziness and loss of appetite that may lead to fatal conditions.

The Annapurna Circuit Trek itinerary offered by Crown Himalaya Treks offers ample time to acclimatize and rest. We walk on slow pace; taking proper rest which lets your body acclimatize well. We ensure our “trekkers” zero risk of altitude threat.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

ABC trek is a moderate trek perfect for passionate hikers with the ability to walk at least 5 – 7 hours on mountain terrain with a light rucksack. With excellent physical condition, positive attitude, self-confidence and strong determination, anyone regardless of size and age can accomplish the trek successfully.

We suggest you to engage on physical training for few weeks prior the trip to boost your strength, stamina and confidence. Cardio, swimming, running and leg exercise are few recommended physical training to prepare yourself for the trek. Previous trekking experience is always an asset but not mandatory. And no technical skills are required as well.

Trekkers with pre-existing medical conditions like heart, lung and blood diseases are suggested to consult their doctor prior the trip.

Best Time to Trek

Annapurna Circuit Trekking is possible to conduct throughout the year but autumn (Sept to Nov) and spring (March – May) are considered as the best time of the year for the trek. If you want to avoid the traffic, you can enjoy the trek during winter (Dec, Jan and Feb). However, the extremely cold temperature and frequent snow-fall might distract the trek. Trekking in summer or Monsoon seasons (June – August) are full of rain; which might invite the risk of landslide and flood. But the rainy season could be paradise for keen botanist.
