After a long, long wait, international travel is finally back up and running. And after a few years of being grounded, now is the time to make your plans for future adventures. If you’re looking for a great entry-level expedition, Annapurna Base Camp is a great option. So, if you’re wondering when you can trek to Annapurna Base Camp in 2022, here’s what you need to know…
When can I trek to Annapurna Base Camp in 2022?

Where is it?
It is in the Annapurna mountain range of Gandaki Province, in north-central Nepal. On our trek, we also spend time in Pokhara and Kathmandu, so you get to see more of beautiful Nepal.
How hard is it?
Annapurna Base Camp is one of our more manageable expeditions. We have ranked it as a level 3 expedition. That means you can expect to trek an average of 4 to 6 hours per day at altitudes not usually exceeding 4,500 metres. Some days may be up to 7 to 8 hours long but that is not typical. Typical elevation gain per day would be 300 – 700 metres. As a rough guide, you should be comfortable hillwalking for 5 to 6 hours per day for two days in a row.
This makes it an ideal expedition for those new to high altitude trekking. For example, Kilimanjaro is a level 4 expedition. However, that doesn’t mean it’s easy! It’s still a multi-day trek at altitude and you need to train accordingly. But don’t be intimidated. Training just involves cardio workouts and hillwalking.
