An amphitheatre surrounded by huge, snow-capped peaks will welcome us at the sanctuary after crossing the Modi Khola; the charisma of which is ineffable in every term.

We offer the best accommodation based on availability during your journey, residing of 10 nights would be arranged in a premium quality guesthouse in twin sharing basis, which could be customized on request. Your accommodation would be facilitated with attached bathrooms and hot shower. As the altitude gets higher availability of such facility gets rare. Onwards to Ghorepani, you will get tea houses offering common toilets separate from the dining hall.
Based on the biological availability, houses and rooms are made up of woods with crafts and displays as the precious interior. Spotless and hygienic mattress, quilt and blanket are available at room. Even though extra blanket could be arranged on requirement; it would be wise decision to use your own sleeping bag for your sound sleep in freezing climate.
The arrangement of single supplement during residing could be done unless we reach to Chomrong upon payment of $ 160. Onwards twin sharing would become option less and should compromise with the availability. Commitment to providing a high level of luxury at higher altitude would be unreliable. So we request you to be ready to adjust with the availability if you are extremely expecting for the thrilling journey.
Food, Meals and Drinks on Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Our Annapurna Base Camp Trek package includes three-course meals for morning, day and evening. Your breakfast, lunch and dinner are subject to availability at tea houses serving across the route. Vegetarian meals are easily available and rarely offer non-veg also.
Similarly, we could get an offer of some more varieties on our Menu including, typically Nepali, Indian, Tibetian, and Continental dishes backed with desserts and bakery items. It’s not sure that all are available at a location because different tea houses have a trend to offer different dishes in different seasons. The menu is highly relying on the availability of material to prepare varieties of dishes. Visitors during summer could have multiple offers and options in comparison to visitors during winter. Journey in the high altitude area is always a challenge, altitude sickness is a common phenomenon, and symptoms could be getting like a headache. In such situation, you are recommended to take enough garlic soup which is tonic against high altitude sickness.
