Annapurna Base Camp at 4,130m/ 13,550 feet. From MBC below Machhapuchre, or Fishtail mountain, we head up hill on an easier trail, deep into the Annapurna Sanctuary. This trail is surrounded by massive mountains. Therefore, the trek into Annapurna Base Camp is stunning.

1) Go slowly and take a full day for the hike rather than get there as fast as possible.

2) Drink lots of liquid.

3) Always give way to yaks right of way and when you meet one on a path with a drop to one side, always stand on the uphill side.

4) Don’t get caught out with inadequate clothing to cope with a rapid change in weather. This is the high Himalaya and a clear bright morning does not mean the same in the afternoon.

5) Do not wander off by yourself and always make sure people know where you are. Anything can happen and a slip on scree or moraine can mean getting cold very quickly while waiting for someone to come and help.

6) Remember that the best approach to safety is to prevent an accident happening in the first place.

7) If your body shows any signs of altitude sickness you need to stop right where you are or descend some altitude.

Staying clean might also help you prevent altitude sickness.

8) You need to acclimatize properly before trekking to the altitude higher than 3000m.

Food at Teahouse trekking varies according to the teahouse and its location.
