Short Annapurna Base Camp trek and Annapurna sanctuary Trekking is an unforgettable journey towards the Southern Face of Annapurna 1. It is also hailed as the finest tea house trek in the region. As you trek through the pleasant and diverse Nepalese landscape, it will take you to the amazing high mountains amphitheater known as Annapurna base camp and sanctuary. The short Annapurna Base camp trek itinerary has been specially designed for trekkers who wish to trek to the Annapurna base camp trek and Annapurna sanctuary in a more relaxed and laid-back manner, absorbing the surreal beauty and experiences the region has to offer.

The 11-day-short Annapurna Base camp trek and Annapurna sanctuary trekking route pass through several varied climatic and geographical conditions, ranging from sub-tropical to alpine and low-valleys to snowy terrains. The several changes in vegetation give the trekkers a wonderful opportunity to witness exotic and endangered species of flora and fauna.

The trek begins with a drive or flight to the Lake City, Pokhara. On the third day of your arrival, we will finally commence the trek from Pokhara to Nayapul. Here onwards, we will trek through several picturesque Gurung villages like Ghandruk, Chomrung, and Bamboo. On the sixth day, we will finally reach the Annapurna Base Camp and Annapurna sanctuary at a staggering elevation of 4,095m via Machhapuchhre Base Camp (3,720m).

Gangapurna mountains from a very close range. While trekking down, we will descend down from a different route through villages of JhinuDanda, Potana, and Kande, which qualifies the trek as a mini-circuit trek and accentuates the trek experience.In addition to the naturally endowed beauty, the region is also notable for its rich civilization and culture. The original inhabitants of the Annapurna region, the Gurungs, have a unique culture and elaborate traditions, which they have successfully preserved and prospered over the years. During the stay at the tea houses operated by these people, we will be able to firsthand experience their hospitality and be a part of the traditional and village lifestyle.

FAQs

Will I get safe drinking water in the Annapurna Region?

Yes, you can refill your water bottle with boiled or purified water in the teahouses. It is better not to drink the water from the tap or the small streams as it might have negative effects on your health. So, to prevent that you should carry some purifying tablets with you.

How difficult is the Annapurna Region trekking?

The trek is moderate as there will be no climbing with ropes and all. Most of the trails such as Mardi Himal Trek and Annapurna Base Camp Trek involve long paths that might need you to go up and downs. So, it might be difficult for some people with back and ankle problems. But, with proper guidance and enough break times, almost anyone can complete the trek.

Is there a chance of getting altitude sickness during the trek?

The Poonhill trek’s elevation is 3,190 m while the elevation of Thorong-la pass is 5,416 m. Generally, people get the symptoms of altitude sickness once they pass the 3000m elevation. So, to avoid uncertain circumstances it is better to get a health checkup and get a doctor consultation before doing the Annapurna Region Trekking.

Can I and my children do the ABC Trek?

Yes, we have had many clients who have completed the ABC trek with their children. Our guides will make sure you and your children be well taken care of during the whole trekking adventure.

What kind of food will I get to have during the Trekking?

You might have heard of the typical term “Dal Bhat”, which is both fulfilling and healthy as well. Most of the foods you get are grown by local farmers. You might not have a lot of items on the Menus in the upper regions. You will get food items such as pasta, pancakes, bread, eggs, coffee, hot lemon, etc.

Can a solo woman traveler go on Annapurna Base Camp trek?

Traveling alone can sometimes be the best thing you can do for yourself. But, with our guide, you will be well taken care of during the trek. Our company keeps the safety of woman traveler at the top priority.

Will we be using tents during the Trek?

It is not necessary to spend your night in tents as there are several tea houses along the trek. So, we will not be using tents during the trek unless you want to have that kind of experience. If you have then you should probably let us know beforehand.

Should I need a porter for my trek?

Well, it depends pretty much on what trek you choose. Some treks involve a lot of difficult paths and routes so, it will be hard for you to carry heavy bags on your own. Hiring a porter can be beneficial as you can fully enjoy the trek without having a backache.

Will I be able to use my phone during the trek?

The mobile phone signal has reached most of the Annapurna Region. So, in case you miss someone from your home you can quickly check upon them. There are also many phone services like charging and recharge cards in almost every part of the Annapurna Region if you need it.

Is there the facility of ATM on the trekking?

Unfortunately, there aren’t such facility of ATM. So, you need to use the service before and after the trekking at Pokhara.

What if I get sick or injured during the trek?

Firstly, our guides will sort out the things for you. However, if there is an emergency then the evacuation through helicopter can be done. For this reason, travel insurance is really important for you as it will help to cover up the fees for the helicopter rescue.

What if I left the gears at my home?

Amazing views and a beautiful sunrise!

19th Apr, 2022

We had an amazing trip with Team Himalaya! We trekked through different scenery every day, and the views were breathtaking. Waking up to glorious sunrises, seeing beautiful sunsets, the changing landscape, all combined to make it the best holiday we have ever had. Our guide Dawa was highly experienced and obviously very concerned with making our trek as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Much appreciated. Everything from food, accommodation and transportation was arranged very professionally. Would highly recommend this trip with Dawa and Team Himalaya.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Team Himalaya

13th Apr, 2022

I had an amazing trip with Team Himalaya! Really great trip with fantastic leaders and guides. Thank you so much Raj and his team. The trip was amazing and loved the outdoors and the mountains. The hike was a bit much but it was expected and not a surprise. It was an excellent trip. Our guide Ramesh is experienced, efficient, professional and had a keen sense of humour, in particular he looked out for our health and safety at altitude and also in the cities. I'd recommend this hike to anyone - but make sure you do stair training. Thank you.

The short Annapurna Base Camp trekking, was quite tough and hard but possible to complete the Annapurna base camp in shorter duration. The best thing about Annapurna base camp trekking, with no worries of catching altitude sickness.
Which made the trek easier along with best guide, staff and strong happy porters of Team Himalaya. What a way to enjoy the trek speeding and reaching the designated overnight stop on time. The guide was very supportive taking care of us and the food was brilliant throughout the whole trip. The Short Annapurna Base Camp trek is worth an experience for time limited people, where Team Himalaya will make it happen.

I never imagined that I could stand amidst giant peaks of Himalayas in a short frame to time. It was a mind-blowing experience for me and my friends, covering the whole trek within a week duration. It was quite tough pushing the last of the energy with steep climb, but at the end it was wonderful. Though the annapurna base camp short  trek does not reach much high elevation, but the climb on stone steps is quite strenuous.

The downhill was hard on the knees, one has to be careful if doing this short Annapurna base camp trek. After all it was certainly a great trip thanks to our strong and expert guide and porters.

Short Annapurna Base Camp trek and Annapurna sanctuary Trekking is an unforgettable journey towards the Southern Face of Annapurna 1. It is also hailed as the finest tea house trek in the region. As you trek through the pleasant and diverse Nepalese landscape, it will take you to the amazing high mountains amphitheater known as Annapurna base camp and sanctuary. The short Annapurna Base camp trek itinerary has been specially designed for trekkers who wish to trek to the Annapurna base camp trek and Annapurna sanctuary in a more relaxed and laid-back manner, absorbing the surreal beauty and experiences the region has to offer.

The 11-day-short Annapurna Base camp trek and Annapurna sanctuary trekking route pass through several varied climatic and geographical conditions, ranging from sub-tropical to alpine and low-valleys to snowy terrains. The several changes in vegetation give the trekkers a wonderful opportunity to witness exotic and endangered species of flora and fauna.

The trek begins with a drive or flight to the Lake City, Pokhara. On the third day of your arrival, we will finally commence the trek from Pokhara to Nayapul. Here onwards, we will trek through several picturesque Gurung villages like Ghandruk, Chomrung, and Bamboo. On the sixth day, we will finally reach the Annapurna Base Camp and Annapurna sanctuary at a staggering elevation of 4,095m via Machhapuchhre Base Camp (3,720m).

Gangapurna mountains from a very close range. While trekking down, we will descend down from a different route through villages of JhinuDanda, Potana, and Kande, which qualifies the trek as a mini-circuit trek and accentuates the trek experience.In addition to the naturally endowed beauty, the region is also notable for its rich civilization and culture. The original inhabitants of the Annapurna region, the Gurungs, have a unique culture and elaborate traditions, which they have successfully preserved and prospered over the years. During the stay at the tea houses operated by these people, we will be able to firsthand experience their hospitality and be a part of the traditional and village lifestyle.

The Short ABC Trek  and Annapurna sanctuary trekking is an incredible, epic, and rewarding trek that offers unwatchable mountain views, enchanting forested trails, and picturesque villages with the rich history. It is of moderate difficulty level and achievable for anyone in good health. Although it is an easy-moderate trek, it is still preferable to have some pre-physical training.

FAQs

Will I get safe drinking water in the Annapurna Region?

Yes, you can refill your water bottle with boiled or purified water in the teahouses. It is better not to drink the water from the tap or the small streams as it might have negative effects on your health. So, to prevent that you should carry some purifying tablets with you.

How difficult is the Annapurna Region trekking?

The trek is moderate as there will be no climbing with ropes and all. Most of the trails such as Mardi Himal Trek and Annapurna Base Camp Trek involve long paths that might need you to go up and downs. So, it might be difficult for some people with back and ankle problems. But, with proper guidance and enough break times, almost anyone can complete the trek.

Is there a chance of getting altitude sickness during the trek?

The Poonhill trek’s elevation is 3,190 m while the elevation of Thorong-la pass is 5,416 m. Generally, people get the symptoms of altitude sickness once they pass the 3000m elevation. So, to avoid uncertain circumstances it is better to get a health checkup and get a doctor consultation before doing the Annapurna Region Trekking.

Can I and my children do the ABC Trek?

Yes, we have had many clients who have completed the ABC trek with their children. Our guides will make sure you and your children be well taken care of during the whole trekking adventure.

What kind of food will I get to have during the Trekking?

You might have heard of the typical term “Dal Bhat”, which is both fulfilling and healthy as well. Most of the foods you get are grown by local farmers. You might not have a lot of items on the Menus in the upper regions. You will get food items such as pasta, pancakes, bread, eggs, coffee, hot lemon, etc.

Can a solo woman traveler go on Annapurna Base Camp trek?

Traveling alone can sometimes be the best thing you can do for yourself. But, with our guide, you will be well taken care of during the trek. Our company keeps the safety of woman traveler at the top priority.

Will we be using tents during the Trek?

It is not necessary to spend your night in tents as there are several tea houses along the trek. So, we will not be using tents during the trek unless you want to have that kind of experience. If you have then you should probably let us know beforehand.

Should I need a porter for my trek?

Will I be able to use my phone during the trek?

The mobile phone signal has reached most of the Annapurna Region. So, in case you miss someone from your home you can quickly check upon them. There are also many phone services like charging and recharge cards in almost every part of the Annapurna Region if you need it.

Is there the facility of ATM on the trekking?

Unfortunately, there aren’t such facility of ATM. So, you need to use the service before and after the trekking at Pokhara.

What if I get sick or injured during the trek?

Firstly, our guides will sort out the things for you. However, if there is an emergency then the evacuation through helicopter can be done. For this reason, travel insurance is really important for you as it will help to cover up the fees for the helicopter rescue.

What if I left the gears at my home?

Trip Reviews (5)

We had an amazing trip with Team Himalaya! We trekked through different scenery every day, and the views were breathtaking. Waking up to glorious sunrises, seeing beautiful sunsets, the changing landscape, all combined to make it the best holiday we have ever had. Our guide Dawa was highly experienced and obviously very concerned with making our trek as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Much appreciated. Everything from food, accommodation and transportation was arranged very professionally. Would highly recommend this trip with Dawa and Team Himalaya.

Amazing views and a beautiful sunrise!

I had an amazing trip with Team Himalaya! Really great trip with fantastic leaders and guides. Thank you so much Raj and his team. The trip was amazing and loved the outdoors and the mountains. The hike was a bit much but it was expected and not a surprise. It was an excellent trip. Our guide Ramesh is experienced, efficient, professional and had a keen sense of humour, in particular he looked out for our health and safety at altitude and also in the cities. I'd recommend this hike to anyone - but make sure you do stair training. Thank you.

When we got a trouble in Ghandruk village, even he was in Kathmandu, but he still try his best to help us. We were so lucky. Highly recommended this company and guide.

So kindness and professional.

The short Annapurna Base Camp trekking, was quite tough and hard but possible to complete the Annapurna base camp in shorter duration. The best thing about Annapurna base camp trekking, with no worries of catching altitude sickness.
Which made the trek easier along with best guide, staff and strong happy porters of Team Himalaya. What a way to enjoy the trek speeding and reaching the designated overnight stop on time. The guide was very supportive taking care of us and the food was brilliant throughout the whole trip. The Short Annapurna Base Camp trek is worth an experience for time limited people, where Team Himalaya will make it happen.

I never imagined that I could stand amidst giant peaks of Himalayas in a short frame to time. It was a mind-blowing experience for me and my friends, covering the whole trek within a week duration. It was quite tough pushing the last of the energy with steep climb, but at the end it was wonderful. Though the annapurna base camp short  trek does not reach much high elevation, but the climb on stone steps is quite strenuous.

The downhill was hard on the knees, one has to be careful if doing this short Annapurna base camp trek. After all it was certainly a great trip thanks to our strong and expert guide and porters.
