Annapurna Base Camp Trek is one of the most cherished trekking in the beautiful nation of Himalayas. This rewarding trip is equally popular as Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, which lies in the northern part of Nepal in Annapurna region. Trek to Annapurna Base Camp is immensely popular due to the eye-catching Himalayan range, hilly landscapes, blooming forests along with its touch to the ethnic culture and hospitality.

After the sightseeing in Kathmandu valley, you fly/drive to the City of Lakes - Pokhara. From there, you drive for an hour and the trek begins. The trekking trail at the beginning section is comfortable and it goes through the sublime villages and captivating terraced fields. With a tiresome climb to Ulleri, you walk through the blooming rhododendron forest. Poon Hill is the fabulous destination to enjoy the view of snow capped Himalayas. Mt. Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Fishtail, Himchuli and other surrounding peaks can be explored.

The trek also offers the ethnic cultural experience of gracious Gurung and Magar communities. Their hospitality is not only wonderful, but also remarkable. Via Machhrepuchhre base camp, you climb over to the Annapurna base camp (4130m). It is surrounded by the snow capped Annapurna Himalayas, which looks to be a bowl. The spectacular sunrise view over the white peaks is massively pleasing. While returning, you can enjoy the natural hot spring at Jhinu Danda and feel relaxed.

Leading you to the bosom of Mt. Annapurna,the 10th highest peak of the world is one of the best offerings of Marvel Adventure. We conduct this trek with a very well-designed itinerary, professional guides and all other necessary arrangements. For the best memories of the treks in Nepal Himalayas, feel free to contact us.

4. Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness, also known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), is a pathological effect of high altitude on humans, caused by acute exposure to low partial pressure of oxygen at high altitude. It commonly occurs above 3000 meters. It presents as a collection of nonspecific symptoms, acquired at high altitude or in low air pressure, resembling a case of "flu, carbon monoxide poisoning, or a hangover". However, most people can ascend to 3000 meters without difficulty.

Primary Symptoms of Altitude Sickness:

  • Lack of appetite, nausea, or vomiting
  • Fatigue or weakness
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Swelling of hands, feet, and face
  • Insomnia
  • Shortness of breath upon exertion
  • Nosebleed
  • Persistent rapid pulse
  • Drowsiness
  • General malaise

Prevention:

Ascending slowly is the best way to avoid altitude sickness. Avoiding strenuous activity such as skiing, hiking, etc. in the first 24 hours at high altitude reduces the symptoms of AMS. Alcohol and sleeping pills are respiratory depressants, and thus slow down the acclimatization process and should be avoided. Alcohol also tends to cause dehydration and exacerbates AMS. Thus, Marvel Adventure strictly suggests avoiding alcohol consumption in the first 24–48 hours at a higher altitude.

Guides and porters from Marvel Adventure are very much familiar with this problem due to their experience. All of them are trained with basic medical trainings and hence they definitely can help you.
