Overview

Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek, as the name implies is a shorter version of the Annapurna Base Camp trek. This trek is suitable for those who have less number of days and still want to explore to the base camp of Mt. Annapurna.

The major highlight of Short trek to Annapurna base camp is the Annapurna base camp itself. From the base camp, you’ll see the 360 degrees panorama of the giant Himalayas. The sunrise views over the tremendous mountains are remarkable. You will see the adorable panorama of Annapurna 1, Annapurna South, the Glacier Dome, Gangapurna, Fang, and Machhapuchhare.

This trek is a beautiful one. It rewards the trekkers with the best highland and lowland experiences. Also, you can get an insight into the Gurung culture at beautiful villages in Annapurna. You will also see the Magar and Thakali people on this trip.

You will feel the changes in climate as you trek from lowland to the highland Himalayas. With the variations in altitude, you will witness the changes in land topology and vegetation. You will also see how topology makes life more difficult.

Memories during this trek will definitely pile up in your mind permanently. You will make remarkable memories at the Machapuchre base camp. Also, the hot bath at natural spring in Jhinu is unforgettable. We promise you a bunch of beautiful memories on the entire trek.

We strongly recommend having travel insurance before going on a trek.  We do our best to take care of you, but something can happen that is out of our control.  In case of a medical emergency, leading to a helicopter evacuation, it is best to have insurance.  You are unable to obtain medical insurance in Nepal and must do so in your home country.  Be sure that your insurance covers accidents abroad and high in the mountains.
