Physical Condition & Experience Requirements
Annapurna Trek is not so difficult trek suitable for passionate walkers who have the ability to walk at least 5-6 hours a day with a light rucksack. In some days we might even need to walk 8 to 9 hours. Walking in higher altitude is more physically demanding than walking in the lower altitudes; however, if we are in excellent health with average physical fitness, positive attitude, self confidence and strong determination, we can accomplish the trek successfully. Exercising and jogging regularly for a few months prior to the trip is a good idea as it will enhance our strength and stability. Past hiking experience is preferred but no technical skill is required. It is important that we consult with our doctor before booking this trek. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood disease should inform Summit Reisen Nepal before booking the trek.

Autumn (Sept to December) and Spring (March to May) are the best seasons for the Trek. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views.

A typical trekking day
A typical day’s walk lasts from five to seven hours and involves a number of ascents and descents. It is rare to spend much time at the same level. On an organized camping trek, the day is run to a remarkably tight schedule: up at 6 am with a cup of tea, pack the gear before breakfast, start walking at 7 am, stop for lunch around 12 o’clock for about half an hour, start after lunch at noon and stop walking at about 3 pm. The dinner is served around 6.30 pm and followed by a briefing for the next trekking day and then it is time to go to sleep.
Please be aware that this time table may be adjusted according to weather conditions, availability of camp sites, water supply etc.
To ensure you will fully enjoy your trek and make the most of it, we also advise you about the following points which should seriously be taken into account:
Food and Water
Lodges and tea houses are carefully chosen by our staff all along the trek. We will make sure that excellent food will be provided to you and that water is boiled or adequately treated, as this is one of the basic rules for healthy trekking. On a camping trek, your only concern with food is sitting down to eat it! The porters carry all the food along with them and there will be a cook with assistants who can turn out meals of often stunning complexity, like baking a cake
Acclimatization is very important for trekking above 3500m. Our trekking schedules have been carefully designed to maximize your ability to acclimatize safely. We ascend slowly and ensure an adequate number of rest days.
However, it is still possible for mountain sickness and your guide will be watching for symptoms with an experienced eye throughout the trip. These symptoms are commonly headache, nausea, lethargy and sometimes breathlessness. If you or any of the group members display any of these symptoms, we will be able to provide informed advice and ensure a proper course of action.
Please make sure that your medical insurance policy will cover a helicopter evacuation if needed since the fee for such an evacuation can amount to US$ 2000.00 per rescue. Please also check the maximum altitude to which you are covered. Sometimes, you have to subscribe a complementary insurance above 4000 m.
First aid kit
Although a first aid kit is provided, we strongly recommend that you take with you the medicine we listed in the equipment check-list as well as your personal medicines as prescribed by your physician
A valid permit is required for certain areas. In order to obtain it (upon your arrival), two working days and two passports size photographs are required.
Everything is included in the price of the trek, except for the purchase of water and soft / hard drinks so we advise you to always carry Nepalese rupees during your trek. The amount to be carried depends on the area and the duration of the trek.
Be A Responsible Trekker And Minimize Your Impact
- Although trekking in the Himalayas plays a vital role in the economy of many mountain areas, it also may have a negative impact which has become a major concern.
- From an ecological point of view, always carry your rubbish with you, drink treated water instead of mineral water in order to reduce the use of plastic bottles.
- Be respectful of the flora and the fauna.
- From a human point of view, please respect Nepalese culture and traditions. It is a good thing before leaving for the trek to have a look at the “Do and Don’t” since an inappropriate behavior, though considered normal in Western countries, could severely shock or hurt local people.
- Do not “steal” pictures and always ask permission from the person before photographing them.
- Please do not give money or sweets to the children directly on your trip, as this encourages them to beg and may contribute to dental problems. If you would like to give something back, you can assist with our charity work by volunteering or giving a donation.
