                Physical fitness for Annapurna Base Camp Short trek

                With the expansion in height, the oxygen level in the climate steadily begins diminishing. Furthermore, when you are trekking in such thin air your heart is pumping hard to discharge oxygen and blood to the entire body. Your heart needs to work double to make your body work appropriately. Along these lines, before heading on the trail, aerobic activities are the main thing you have to focus on. In the event that you're a beginner, at that point, you have to begin getting ready six months before the excursion. aerobic exercise generally includes light to moderately accelerated exercises, for example, cycling, swimming, running, or whatever other movement gets your heart and lungs pumping. Essentially, aerobic exercise will receive the most extreme volume of oxygen that your body can utilize. This is significant for the trek.

                Weather and temperature of Annapurna base camp 7 days trek

                Weather and temperature are the determining components in this trek. The most reasonable weather for Annapurna Base Camp Trek is in the autumn and spring seasons. The trouble level increments when you trek in the winter season. The entire area loads up with snow, which remains hard to walk. The temperature comes to underneath 0 degrees throughout the winter season. Summer and winter are off-season trekking months. Along these lines, you may need to face a few challenges.

                Best time for Annapurna Base Camp Short trek

                Autumn (September-November) and Spring (March-May) are the best seasons for Annapurna Base Camp Trek. During autumn, the climate is warm and dry which is very reasonable. The spring season is probably the best time. It is when Rhododendron sprout and dry leaves turn green. There is greenery all around. The summer and winter seasons are less prominent than autumn and spring. The temperature decreases below 0 degrees during winter in the Annapurna Base Camp. So this trek is less prevalent in winter as a result of freezing cold in the region. Nevertheless, the trekking is conceivable on the off chance that you convey enough essential trekking gear with you. During monsoon season, heavy rainfalls during the evening and at night make the trekking trails slippery and muddy.

                Altitude sickness 

                Elevation sickness is genuine. As you walk to a higher elevation, the measure of oxygen gets thinner. Because of this, you may have some issues breathing. On the off chance that you are a patient of any heart illness, it is ideal to stay away from high elevation trekking like Annapurna Circuit Trek and Everest Base Camp Trek. In the event that you face any trouble while trekking, descend to a lower elevation. Hydrate yourself by drinking water. Go slow and take a rest along the route. Try not to rush to arrive at the goal. You might research the side effects and preventive proportions of altitude sickness before leaving for trekking. 

                Frequently Asked Questions
                • Q1. What kind of facilities you can get into tea houses during the Annapurna Base Camp trek?

                  Except for the high altitude, you can get private rooms with soft clean beds in most of the tea houses but the toilet and shower room need to be shared. They have a hot shower and cold shower facilities. For cold shower free of charge but hot shower need to pay an extra charge.

                • For all the reasons you need trekking information Management permits (TIMS) as policy. And you will need Annapurna national park permits or conservation area permits. Some area needs special permits issued by Immigration through a trekking agency. All these Permits are included in the package.

                • In the more popular trails (Annapurna, Everest, Langtang, Manaslu, Mustang) there are well-established Mountain lodges providing sleeping accommodation and meals. Gone are the days when trekkers had to share dormitories, almost all lodges nowadays provide private rooms and many also have solar showers and clean toilet facilities.

                  In the rural parts of Nepal where there are no proper lodges for accommodation, we organize fully supported camping treks. We carry all our camping or safari gear and food. Our cooking team prepares food and drinking water is adequate.

                • There is a power supply until the Annapurna Base Camp. There may have some power cut timetable in the winter season. For the most part, they will approach you to pay additional for charging. Nepal has a 220-volt control framework. The power attachments are 2pin, 3 pins both are alright. A large portion of the visitor houses offers paid internet providers however the upper segment has nothing worth mentioning gathering for the web. For your benefit, you can purchase a nearby SIM card in Kathmandu and purchase a web bundle.

                • The best climate for trekking in the Annapurna locale is during harvest time (September to November) and spring (March-May). The skies are clear at that point and you will get an opportunity to appreciate some remarkable perspectives on the Annapurna's and Dhaulagiri crests.

                  Remember that despite the fact that it isn't rainstorm season any longer it will be a lot hotter and sticky in the lower districts (wilderness) regardless you may experience a surprising shower or two. It will likewise be a lot cooler above 3500m. Despite the fact that it's not actually wintering you will need comfortable garments and a down coat

                • Each and every lodge and tea houses have boiling water for trekkers. Someplace of the trekking route, they have a mineral water bottle for drinking. In some places, it is not allowed to sell water bottles so they provide a safe drinking water station for selling water. We provide water or information on water sources by our guide in trekking.

                  Austin HarveyUnited States,February 01, 2023

                  7 days Trek to Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal

                  I was once encouraged by a friend to trek to Annapurna Base Camp 7 days in Nepal. I'm pleased I did, too. The seven-day trip through the verdant forests was an incredible experience in and of itself. Not only was the Annapurna Mountain a visual feast, but the entire range of snow-capped peaks was equally gorgeous at sunrise and sunset. Mountain peaks appear to be golden pearls of nature as they get illuminated. During my journey, I also had an unexpected snowfall, which added to its memorability. Many others may have had problems with the snowfall, but Nepal Trek Adventures (NTA) had me covered for safety. Before my trip had started, they already had a heads-up from the local guide.

                  Because of that, I was able to completely prepare for my trek and purchase all of my gear. The staff at the company was really kind and gave me a great tour. He was really helpful and gave a detailed description of everything. As a visitor, it seemed simpler for me to interact with the locals. When someone travels to Nepal, whether alone or with a group, I highly recommend taking the ABC trek.
