Great trekking route. Enjoyed every moment.

Beautiful trek with incredible views throughout the entire journey. I trained pretty strongly so the physicality of it never really affected me. The most dangerous part for me was not being able to adapt to the food at the cats teahouses. Drink lots of water and give yourself some acclimation days and you'll be fine. I used Gadventures and don't regret anything about it.

This is a classic for a reason. the views are amazing but its about the cultural exchange and the people you meet. Thorang La is the highlight. you need to bring clothes for -10C and shorts for 25C an amazing trek through several biogeoclimatic zones from jungle to tundra. A bucket list item

Very challenging long treks with pretty much equal uphill and downhill. The most beautiful place I have ever seen. The turquoise glacier river, the amazing snow covered mountains. Be in good shape for this hike so you can fully enjoy!! Villages along the way are a refreshing treat. Randomly in the middle of nowhere a really cool town emerges with vibrant markets (Namche Bazaar). What’s even more amazing is that everything used to build these villages was carried up by porters, donkeys, and yaks. Once in a lifetime experience I am glad I jumped on.

Insanely amazing experience. 132kms, 14days and one of the best things I’ve done in my life! Highly recommend, take it slow and enjoy the ride.

it was an amazing hike in this book I read.

My wife and I did this trek in April 2018- bucket list adventure for me to celebrate my 50th birthday. It was a profound experience; the mountains, surroundings, and wildlife were even more stunning than I imagined and the local people are amazing too. I was sad to leave and though typically I don't go back to the same place twice, I long to return to Nepal. Just an incredible trek. We went with Canadian Himalayan Expeditions out of Toronto, and I appreciated that our guide kept us off the main trail for much of the outward journey. The main trail is fantastic, but was packed with hikers, porters, and pack animals- sometimes jammed to a standstill. It was nice to be off the main trail for much of the hike.

People say you can do this in average physical condition; I have a hard time seeing that. We did over 250 miles of hiking with heavy packs, including stretches of the AT in north GA- from January through March to prepare. I felt good but there were still a few days that were really tough. If you approach it thinking average condition and little training is fine, I suspect you could make it but will be miserable. As noted, it's not that the hikes themselves are particularly tough, but given the altitude, fairly primitive conditions, and long days of climbing for 2 weeks (we took 15 days out-and-back) I think you'd be much more able to enjoy the spectacular scenery and amazing people if you train some. But do it; you will not be disappointed!

An absolutely awesome hike! Great if you go with an experienced organisation that takes all the guess work out of it, makes it safe and gives you the best chance of making it to EBC in regards of altitude sickness! Biggest tip....take it slow and drink lots of water so you can adapt to the altitude, and that way you get to soak in the spectacular views! Pick a company like Everest One and you actually get to sleep up at EBC

Definitely not for the light Trekkers, really pushing you to the edge. Both endurance and stamina is a must+++++!!!!

Also some good crampons, rain jacket, proper poles and shoes, a trekking pack and a big thermos would benefit your experience of the trip.

I would do this every year if I could. It's so worth it and such an amazing, beautiful experience. I went to everest base camp which I think anyone of average physical shape could do, I went on to kaLapattar which was 18k ft, and I actually found that difficult, where as everest was moderate. From what I saw from others, its the elevation more than the difficulty of the hike that people found challenging. If you love hiking, mountains and culture, you will very much love this experience.

challenging but rewarding. great views

Simply amazing! Awesome sights!

Celebrated my 60th birthday with a bucket list adventure.

I actually did the Three Passes trail which includes the EBC trek. EBC is doable by someone in average physical condition. The Three Passes is very strenuous, you need to be in great shape. Spent a week above the 5000 meter level.

It’s an amazing trek with clouds appearing in and out of the forest on the trial. Amazing views and lovely landscape. The forest can get a bit muddy & slippery on certain spots but over all the walk is pleasant and beautiful. You can see many species of local flowers & some indigenous plants. Just completed the 5 day poonhill, Ghorepani trek in April 2018.

My son and I did the Everest base camp trek in March 2017 and it was fantastic, although the trek is tough and you need to be committed to make it with altitude playing a big part the scenery, the mountains, the whole experience make it all worthwhile.
We made some great friends along the way and were well looked after by a excellent team from Himalayan Wonders who were very professional throughout.
This was a bucket list item for me and it gave me a great sense of achievement and probably a different outlook on life for the future - go do it Ps watch out for the Yaks!!.

“Hard, but not impossible.”

Everyone should experience this incredible hike once in their life.

Breathe taking views. Challenging, but so rewarding making it to Annapurna Base Camp

Wow. To say this trail is a must would be to undersell it.
The Annapurna Circuit is a transformational experience emotionally and physically.
Prepare to hike through the seasons. Your trek will begin in lush jungle, banana trees and monkeys swinging about. As the days go by you will find yourself in beautiful pine forests that eventually give way to barren, unforgiving landscape. All culminating, of course, at the pass. Thorong La pass is evry bit as difficult as you have read. But, that's what we came for, right?

Beautiful scenery greats you at every turn. The trail is an incredibly social environment so bring some playing cards! Good luck and happy hiking ;)

On the track this week so far amazing views beautiful people.

Astonishing!!! An experience of a lifetime!

Thanks i'll check them out. Be safe.

I am on this trail right now. We stopped at Debuche for acclimatization and tomorrow morning we will be hiking up to Dingbuche. In response to a question someone asked, the best outfit in my view is the one we are using: Active Adventures from New Zealand.

My son and I are looking to go to EBC next year. Does anyone have any recommendations on a good company to use for the trek? Any input would be appreciated.
