How difficult is it trekking to Annapurna base Camp. First of all, you need to understand the difference between the Annapurna base camp trek and the Annapurna circuit trek. The trek into the Annapurna region is from the south as you make your way up into the world famous Annapurna Sanctuary. This is one of the great treks in the world. World class mountain viewing from low altitude, but you are coming to the land of thousands of steps. Most of your trek is spent below 3,000m/ 10,000 feet but the terrain is challenging with thousands and thousands of stairs. On your Annapurna Circuit trek you will make your way around the back of the Annapurna range into Manang and Pisang. A lot of people finish in Jomsom and fly back to Pokhara.

I have been on both trips and much prefer the trek to Poon hill and deep into the Annapurna range and Annapurna Base Camp. Some of the best mountain views in the world are from the Annapurna valley and around the Annapurna Base Camp area. All this viewing is done at low altitude so warmer and less chance of altitude related issues. You do need to be physically prepared as this trek has a lot of stairs and steps up and down hills.

This trek does require very specific training, so having excellent leg strength, balance, strong core and being used to walking up and down long sets of stairs with a back pack is really important.
