Mt. Api (7,132m), located in the extreme northwest corner of Nepal, is the highest mountain in the Far-Western region of Nepal. This treasure in the Far-Western region of Nepal is protected by the Api Nampa Conservation Area. Along with the mountain, this conservation area also conserves the natural beauty and eco-system of the region, allowing trekkers to feed their eyes on something more than just the mountain.

Yes, the Api Base Camp Trek, isn’t just about the base camp and the beauty of Mt. Api. There is much more to it, than just the seven thousander. Like people say, “It’s just as much about the journey, as it is the destination’, the Api Base Camp trekking trail proves the saying. The beautiful Mahakali Valley, steep gorges, subtropical to alpine forest and vegetation, pastures, grasslands, waterfalls, lakes, streams along the trail have equal contribution make this trekking trail one of the best trekking trails in Nepal. Moreover, this trekking is equally good for bird watching, and understanding the mixed community, culture, tradition and lifestyle of people that is pure and untouched by modernity. Apart from the attractions presented by the trail, the Api Base Camp trekking package also allows trekkers to enjoy the attractions of Dhangadhi, like the Aircraft museum, Botanical Garden and Jokhar Lake. If you have time and willingness to explore more, adding one more day to the trip will also allow you to enjoy the attractions of the Kathmandu Valley.

The Api Base Camp trekking starts with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Dhangadhi (optional: arrival in Delhi and a bus ride to Dhangadhi). From Dhangadhi, we will drive to Latinath, the start point of the trek and walk all the way up to the base camp of Mt. Api past Pagibagar, Maakrigadi, Siti, Domal and Daulo Odar. We retrace our path using the same trail till Dhangadhi. The trip ends either with a flight to Kathmandu or a drive to Delhi from Dhangadhi.      

Our standard 15 days Api Base Camp Trek package ensures the benefit of bed and breakfast in Kathmandu and a full board (meal and accommodation), during the trek; all ground transportation, flight tickets, and an English speaking guide. However, this package is fully customizable and can be tailored to the needs, requirements and budget of each individual customer, with guaranteed departure. Group trekkers can enjoy a special group discount.  

Spring and Autumn are the best seasons to plan this trekking. As per the grades, this trekking in Nepal falls under moderate trekking, therefore, any physically fit individual with good stamina can attempt this trekking in Nepal. Moreover, only group trekking is allowed in this area. Solo travelers can, however, join Amigo Treks and Expedition’s existing group.

Nevertheless,  if you are looking to explore other attractions of the Far-western region of Nepal, 11 Days Khaptad Trek is a good option to consider. Enjoy the trip!

Any physically fit person with good stamina (some days require 8-9 hour walking) and health can successfully complete the Api Base Camp Trek  in Nepal. Nevertheless, we recommend you to seek advice, medication, and permission from either your doctor or GP before booking the trip. While seeking advice, we recommend you to focus on the necessary guide walks required before the trekking. This trekking does not require any prior hiking, trekking and camping experience, however, running, cycling and a few hours of uphill hiking, before the trek can always aid in the success of this trek.

Although, our guides carry a set of First Aid Kit, we recommend you to carry your regular medicine. The medical facilities in the Far-Western region of Nepal is very rare, therefore, we recommend you to buy all required medicines, while in Kathmandu. 

Note:

We kindly request you to submit your medical fitness certificate (which must include your present health condition, medical situation, preceding illness, and the medications you are taking), before booking the packages.

Tipping

Tipping the service provider in Nepal is customary. This shows the expression of gratitude and satisfaction. In Nepal you can tip your service providers like guides, porters, drivers, and waiters. The tip amount entirely depends upon your wish. However, there is the custom of tipping 10% of the total trip cost in the ratio of 60:40 (60% of the total tip amount to the guide and 40% to the porter) to the guide and porters.

Safety and Security

Your safety and security is our greatest concern during the trek. Therefore, during the trek, your team leader is given full authority to amend or cancel the itinerary, if it concerns your safety.

For the safety and security of your belongings, like passport, air tickets, travel checks, cash and other valuable items, we recommend you bring a neck wallet or money belt to carry these stuffs, while travelling. Do not bring your valuable jewelry along with you. Most of the hotels in Kathmandu provide safety deposit boxes, where you can safely store your valuables, while you are on a trek. However, for the security of your luggage, we suggest you bring a lock.

Please note, neither the team leader nor the company will not be responsible for the security involved during any extra activities that you want to undertake which is not included in the itinerary. Therefore, calculate the risk before attempting any such activity, especially water based (do not go alone; take the help of your guide). Also, do not force our team leader to make arrangement on your behalf for water based activities that are not accompanied by guide(s).

Additional rules:

We strongly recommend you not to contravene the laws and rules of the country. Do not carry illegal drugs and do not get involved with sex workers.

Local Dress

When packing your luggage, we recommend you to pick loose, lightweight, long clothing to help you stay cool in the hot and humid climate of Asian summer. Dress standard in Asia is more conservative, therefore, we recommend you to avoid very short dresses like shorts/skirts/singlet/tank tops especially, while visiting holy sites.
