How challenging is the ABC Trekking Route?
Annapurna Base Camp Trek falls under moderate level or Grade-B trekking. This level of trek usually involves about one to two-week-long journeys above the elevation of 3000m and below 5000m. Grade B trekking is suitable for beginner trekkers with few hiking experiences.
The trek usually involves uphill and downhill routes ranging from 3000-5000m. The altitude gain per day during this level of trekking can vary between 400m-700m. You will have to walk on diverse trails, from steep ascents to rugged trails along the trek.
As the highest point is below 4500 m, there is less chance of getting altitude sickness. However, it is always good to be prepared and take precautions.
This is the most suitable trek for people with little to no experience in trekking who are in good physical health. You can prepare for the trek by going on a few short hikes and treks while also maintaining Trekker's stamina with physical exercise.
Acclimatization and Safety during the Journey to ABC Trek
The highest point you will reach while trekking Annapurna Base Camp is at an elevation of 4130 m, which invites the risk of altitude sickness. Especially for beginner trekkers, there is a chance of gaining altitude sickness which is a common concern during high-altitude treks.
However, it is preventable with proper precautions and treatment. Our 12 Days itinerary includes a very slow walk with rests at certain points. Although there are no acclimatization days, you will not be walking for more than 6 hours at maximum during the trek, and you will have a gradual ascend, which will prevent you from having altitude sickness.
As more precaution, we also encourage you to keep yourself hydrated constantly all along the trek and stay away from all the alcoholic drinks. Our team will make sure that your safety is the top priority during the trek.
Thus, you can rest assured of having an adventure of a lifetime. If you prefer to have rest days in between the journey, then we can customize the itinerary accordingly. Moreover, in case of sickness, you will be brought down to a lower altitude by our team immediately.
