Are you willing to opt for Annapurna Base Camp Short Trek but are laid back due to the constraint of time? If yes, then World Alpine Treks brings an 8 days trekking package at your service, which is also famous as Annapurna Base Camp Short Trek. Annapurna Base Camp Short Trek is a revised version of 14 day standard Annapurna Base Camp Trek package. Both treks are like similar  except the fact that the days are reduced to a short trek by opting for a journey to/from Pokhara via flight than through the roadways.

Annapurna Base Camp Short Trek is undeniably a fruitful journey that caters you to all the fantastic features of the Annapurna region of Nepal. The journey starts with a flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara city. As soon as you land at the Pokhara airport, you will be transferred to Jhinu Dada, the place from where you will commence your actual trekking journey. In the initial phase, the trail goes through the lush landscape with jovial villages and farmlands. 

The trail further extends to Annapurna Base Camp via the villages of Sinuwa and Deurali. At the base camp, you can appreciate the eye-catching beauty of mountains that rise tall one over the other in an alluring manner. Also, known as Annapurna Sanctuary, you can get close to views of mountains like Annapurna I, II, III, IV, Annapurna South, Mt. Nilgiri, and many other peaks in the Annapurna range. From the base camp, you make your return journey to Kathmandu via Bamboo, Jhinu Danda, and back to Pokhara to catch a flight. At Jhinu Danda, you can enjoy a hot water bath at the natural hot water springs there.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is much more than this. You can explore the ethnic villages and get a wide range of knowledge about people, their culture, custom, and lifestyle. The hospitality that you will receive from the locals is truly an inspiring experience. The spring – March to May can be the best time to visit this place with flower blossoms and a vibrant environment. However, autumn, i.e., September to October, is also the best time to opt for this journey.
