North Annapurna Base Camp Trek is the recently opened off-the-beaten trekking trail in the Annapurna region of Nepal. This country section has never been trekked, so the teahouse and lodges are unavailable in the Annapurna North Base Camp area. You have to go camping in the region of Mt.Annapurna, the world’s tenth highest mountain. The trail of the Annapurna North Base Camp is a challenging trek. However, the thrill and excitement you experience during the trek make your trip to Nepal unforgettable. If you seek adventure and wilderness, you should opt for this trek. Undoubtedly, the North Annapurna Base Camp Trekking trail allures every trekking enthusiast and nature lover.

The first climber of Annapurna North Base Camp trekking was the French group led by Maurice Herzog and Louis Lachenal. After that, the route became popular as French North Face Route. Before 1950, Man conquered no mountain with a height above 8000m. North Annapurna Base Camp has not climbed again until 1970. In 1970 the British Army Expedition followed the same trail to reach into the submit. Because of difficulty, only a few people have North Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

Throughout the trail, you will be bewildered by the captivating views of Tilicho Peak(7134m), Nilgiri Himal(7061m), and Mt Dhauligiri(8167m), Mt Annapurna I (8091m), and so on. The shimmering glaciers behind the moraine hills are awe-inspiring. If you are looking for more adventure or want to see the southern face of Annapurna, you can do the Annapurna south base camp Trek.

    The trek to the Annapurna North Base Camp is normally rated as a moderate trek. During the trekking journey, you have to spend some nights camping. Also, there are no trail signs, lodges, villages, and people in this section of the trail which make it more challenging than other Annapurna region treks such as the Annapurna Base Camp trek, Mardi Himal trek and so on. Rather than doing the solo trek, it is essential to hire a guide or porter for safety on this route.

  • Trekking to the North Annapurna Base Camp is possible throughout the year, however, it is important to consider the best time of the year to trek in this region.
