Short Annapurna Circuit Trek is a shortened version of the Annapurna Circuit Trek. While the itinerary is a little shorter compared to the full-length version, there is no compromise in thrill and adventure. We have designed the itinerary so as to maximize your experience in limited time.
Short Annapurna Circuit Trek – 12 days takes you to the heart of Manang – a small and sparsely populated district in northern Nepal. Manang is famous for its ancient caves, which are a major archaeological site. The caves provide evidence and glimpse of life in prehistory. Manang is arid with desert-like vegetation.
The road to Manang passes through dense rhododendron, oak and maple forests. Rare wildlife like barking deer, Himalayan leopard, mountain goat etc. are spotted on the road. The wild cat in the mountains are smaller in size compared to the Royal Bengal Tiger in the plains. They are also shy in nature. They distance themselves from humans upon sighting. They are not a danger to people walking in groups.
We will enjoy visit to temples and monasteries in Manang before heading to the highest and most thrilling point of our tour – the Thorang-La pass (5416m). From Thorang-La we descend towards Muktinath – which is a famous pilgrimage destination for the Hindus and Buddhists. We enjoy hot water bath in the natural springs in Tatopani and travel to Ghorepani from here, where we will enjoy beautiful sunrise and mountain view. We descend to Nayapul from Ghorepani and end our trek.
