Short Trek to ABC
Experience the awe-inspiring Annapurna Base Camp Trek in just 5 days, embarking from and concluding in Pokhara. This streamlined itinerary is a remarkable departure from the past, where a minimum of 12 days was required to complete the trek. Now, you can enjoy the breathtaking journey without the need for an extended 12-day holiday in Nepal.
Previously, the trek commenced around Ghorepani, Poonhill, Tadapani, and Chomorong. However, the present route allows for a convenient drive to Nayapul, followed by a seamless transition to Motkyu. From there, the trek unfolds through Chomrong and Himalaya, culminating at the base of Annapurna.
This condensed timeframe caters to those with limited vacation days. The enchantment of traversing nature and immersing oneself in local culture remains unchanged. The only notable difference is the return journey along the same route.
