Annapurna Base Camp Yoga Trek

Duration: 15 Days   |  4 Reviews

Annapurna Base Camp Yoga Trek is a spiritual experience of a lifetime.  The trek to the base camp of world’s 10th highest mountain in the world, Annapurna I (8091m), gets even better when you add daily yoga practice. Annapurna Base Camp Yoga Trek begins from Pokhara as do all treks in Annapurna region. You arrive in Kathmandu on the first day, the second day we take you on a sightseeing adventure in Kathmandu, a must to connect with Nepalese culture. We also sit down and discuss our trip. The next day, we embark on a 7 hours pleasant ride to Pokhara alongside Trishuli River that nourishes some picturesque villages. We spend the day in a Yoga retreat center in Pokhara.

Actual walking starts on the fourth day of the trek. We start the day with a yoga session with our Yoga Guru(teacher) and drive to Nayapul then trek to Tikhedhunga alongside Modi Khola (river). We trek through the luscious Rhododendron forest trail on our way to Ghorepani on the fifth day. During blooming season ( spring and autumn), this trail is stunning. The highlight of this trek is setting foot on Annapurna Base Camp and practicing Yoga there, but the poon Hill experience is no less than the main highlight.

A before break-a dawn hike to Poon Hill and a yoga session there amongst a panorama of dozens of mountains including Mt. Machapuchhre and Annapurna I will fill you with a sense of happiness that will stay.During the next few days of the trek, we come across the beautiful Rhododendron forest trail again- from Dovan to Deurali. We reach the Annapurna Base Camp at 4,210m on the 10th Day of the trek. Fun fact, we have to cross the ‘’Machapuchhre Base Camp’’ (not a real base camp at Mt. Machapuchhre or Mt. fishtail is before we can get to Annapurna Base Camp. It is a beautiful 5 hours trek mostly in beautiful rocky terrain.

We stay overnight at the Annapurna Base Camp and wake up to a breathtaking sunrise over the Annapurna massif. We practice our morning yoga in the heaven-like setting before descending to Bamboo. We trek from Bamboo to Jhinu Dada the next day and from Jhinu Dada to Nayapul the following day. From Nayapul, we drive to Pokhara and stay the night there. The next day we drive from Pokhara back to Kathmandu marking the end of our glorious Annapurna Base Camp Yoga Trek.

    NOT ENOUGH GOOD THINGS TO SAY ABOUT THIS GROUP!!!”

    Rating:

    Adventure Club Treks, led by Birendra, is just overall a very experienced team. They carry themselves with such character and pride.The porters and travel guides are very well coordinated, they treat each other with respect and camaraderie, and they love to teach tourists like me about their culture.

    Birendra understands Nepal territory like the back of his hand and understands the risks and rewards of trekking. He placed his trust in me to carry out the trek and even scolded me for not nourishing myself during the first few days. He is passionate about his work but the best thing is that he is also just doing what he loves: learning from people and sharing his experiences selflessly. 
    Sonam (our other guide), Krishna, Raj, Ganesh, and the other very funny porter who's name I forget now, were all just so warm and helpful!

    See you cats in everest!!

    Amazing, transformative trek!

    Rating:

    I had an amazing experience trekking through the Himalayas to ABC with Adventure Club Treks and 180 Retreats. Birendra and Sonam immediately felt like family. Both were very knowledgable about the trail, very trustworthy and were there to support us the whole way. We had porters to help carry our stuff with the exception of what we wanted to keep in our day pack. With their seasoned experience to ABC, they found us the best of the best tea houses to stay at with beautiful views and wholesome filling food. Birendra and Sonam really took care of all of us on the trek, checking in with us how we were feeling our doing, giving us support or encouragement when needed. They always had a smile on their face or laughing, their love for the mountains and people really shines through. I wouldn't trust anyone more with my safety than Adventure Club Treks, I can't recommend them enough. I will be back for Everest Base Camp in a year and possibly more excursions with these guys. Met as strangers, left as friends.

    Retreat of a lifetime”

    Rating:

    partnered with Birendra and Adventure Club Treks leading a retreat group to do yoga, meditation, reflection and Trekking ABC. Wow! These guys were so accommodating, friendly and on top of details, even as they changed. They helped us find yoga spots and made sure that everyone finished the trek with strength. They did whatever it took. They were fun and made it easy. The best is how honest they are and how their hearts are truly to ensure that we all had the best experiences.
    I’ll be returning to do Everest with these guys. 

    Amazing.

    Rating:

    An amazingly planned and executed trek in Nepal! These guys really know what they are doing.I had the trek of a lifetime, staying in excellent and comfy tea lodges with tasty (and plentiful!) food, organized transport, and friendly help from leader Birendra, Sonam, and others including porters that will carry most of your stuff except a few day pack items.This is a physical trip but it's also something for your soul! I am so pleased with hiring these guys and their gracious smiles, help, and guidance.

Pre-Trip Meeting 

Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
