Ready to see the world from a different perspective? Join NUS Rovers as we take on Expedition Annapurna this summer! From 20 May to 1 June, embark on this 13D12N adventure across new lands with 11 other trekkers as we explore majestic Nepal.

Immerse yourself in the Nepalese culture and starry nights as we spend our nights in tea houses among the mighty Himalayan massif. As we trek to the Annapurna Base Camp, we would get to interact with fellow Nepalese and enjoy local delights such as Momos (dumplings) and Dhal Bhat!

 FAQ!

It is from 20 May to 1 June 2018 (13D 12N). We will be meeting at Changi Airport on 20 May at 1710 and arrive back in Singapore at around 0930 on 1 June.

The setting of Annapurna Base Camp at 4130 m is unique and incredibly spectacular, set amidst the majestic peaks of Annapurna I (8091 m), Annapurna South (7219 m), Machhapuchhre (6993 m) and Hiunchuli (6441 m).

Did you know? The ABC trek is also known as a “cultural trek”, as it brings us through the welcoming villages of Nepal.

Aside from embarking on the ABC trek, we will be visiting the following places:

  1. Swayambhunath Temple
  2. Thamel Market (Thamel Chowk)
  3. Hanuman Dhoka
  4. Basantapur Tower
  5. Pashupatinath Temple
  6. Boudha Stupa

The 7-day ABC trek is rated a 4.5/5. On average, we will be trekking at least 5 to 6 hours a day. Conditioning is important so please do try to ensure you are physically fit* in order not to make this climb a 5/5 difficulty rating for yourself and your fellow trekmates. Even though May is summer season, the temperature can drop to as low as -8 degrees Celsius at night! Don’t underestimate the cold. If you get cold easily, ensure that you are well protected and you won’t have a hard time embarking on this trek! 🙂

*exercise at least thrice a week (at least 30 min each exercise session) 4 weeks prior to the trip

Holy schnikes! What equipment do I need for this trek?
We will require proper trekking boots as we will be trekking for a total of 7 days in relatively rough terrains. Trekking boots will help reduce ankle sprains 🙂 Also, we will need proper layers to protect ourselves from the cold. Equipments such as ice axes will not be required.

The price for non-Rovers members is $1440 SGD. Members are entitled to 5% discount ($1390) to all Rovers trek, capped at a maximum of $50 per trip.

Trip fees cover visa, airfare, accommodations, trekking guides & permits, meals during the trek, transports and tours. Food before and after the trek, shopping costs and personal medication will be borne by participants themselves.

For most of the trek, we walk alongside the raging Modi Khola River.
