Difficulties during Annapurna Base Camp Trek in November

Crowded routes

Though not the peak season, still people take a trek to ABC in November because of the suitable climates and temperatures and also because of the post-monsoon season. Due to this, you may face crowds in some of the renowned places, which can cause you difficulties in taking pictures of your surroundings.
If you come across any crowd, it is better to take an alternate way of enjoying the crowd-free trek. 

Limited Choice of Food & Accommodation

Even if you find different tea houses across the trails, all of them might not be as hygienic as you want, so you may find it difficult to find accommodations that suit you better. With the increasing number of trekkers, the teahouses on route remain packed every day, so you might find limited choices for food and accommodations. 

It’s recommended to pre-book the lodge for better food and accommodation.

Altitude sickness

Traveling to higher altitudes can cause altitude sickness because the air is thin in higher elevations. In Annapurna Base Camp Trek in November, you will be gaining a maximum height of 4100 meters at the base camp. 

In addition, the cold may affect your respiration at a higher altitude. So, you have a chance of getting altitude sickness. If you encounter any symptoms like breath, sleeplessness, or any other symptoms inform your guide immediately.
