Annapurna Base Camp Short Trek is one of the most popular hiking routes in the Annapurna Region and is a short walk to Annapurna Base Camp. While it takes fewer days than the normal Annapurna Base Camp Trek, the thrill and adventure are not diminished. Because we’ll have to go farther in fewer days than with other ABC alternatives, this trek is also known as the Rapid Annapurna Base Camp journey.
Annapurna Base Camp Short Trekking begins in Pokhara, a picturesque lake city in western Nepal. However, on the First day, you arrive in Kathmandu, and on the Second day drive to Pokhara.
On the third day, you’ll drive to Nayapul and then Kimche, the traditional ends of other Ghorepani circuit treks, to enter the Annapurna Conservation Area. Beautiful subtropical forests line our route, which is also home to several birds, animal, and plant species that are at risk of extinction.
We remained after a long and exhausting day of walking, beautiful settlements like Ghandruk, crossing through Chhomrung located on the hilltops, give the ideal resting site for the night.
In this Annapurna Base Camp Short trek itinerary, the Gurung ethnic group predominately inhabits the settlements. Their hospitality is exquisite, and their culture is distinct.
Before arriving at the base camp of Annapurna, locations like Ghandruk Chomrung, Sinuwa, and Deurali offer beautiful views of the Himalayas. As we travel farther north, the vegetation begins to take on an alpine appearance.
Additionally, the path steepens. Initially, we arrive at Machhapuchhre Base Camp (Mount Fishtail). A few kilometers in front of MBC is Annapurna Base Camp (4,130 m).
This Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek is the best scenery and mountain views in a short period of time. Able to see, Annapurna 1 ( 8091m), Annapurna 2, Annapurna 3, Annapurna South ( 7219m) Annapurna 4, Gangapurna, Machhapuchhre ( 6993m), and some climbing peaks surrounded in Annapurna Base camp with big Annapurna glacier.
