We set off on our adventure to the Annapurna Base Camp, which is situated at an elevation of 4,130m, with the Himalayas as our constant companion. The Hinku cave, which was frequently utilized by early Annapurna expeditions as a resting and resupply location, is reached by the trail as it ascends from the Himalaya. After an hour of walking from the cave, we arrive at the village of Deurali, beyond which the trail ascends through landslide-ravaged terrain. The difficult ascent via the glacier moraines leads us to the Annapurna Base Camp when we first arrive at the Machhapuchhre Base Camp. ABC overnight.

Day 5

To ensure that we do not miss the stunning Himalayan dawn from base camp, the day starts early. You wouldn’t want to miss the magnificent Himalayan view, which includes the Annapurna I (8,091m), II (7,937m), South (7,219m), and Dhaulagiri (8,167m) Himalayas, all of which are bathed in the morning sun’s golden rays. We return to Sinuwa while taking in the stunning Himalayan views. Spend the night at Sinuwa to experience Gurung culture’s splendor. Spend the night at Sinuwa.

Day 6

Today is the last day of the hike, and we return to Kilue before taking the bus to Pokhara. With the breathtaking Himalayan panorama at our backs, we leave Sinuwa. Before arriving in Chhomrong, the trail gradually decelerates back to the Himalaya. The route arrives at Kilue as the escalating hills gradually obscure the distant Himalayas. We return to Pokhara and proceed straight to the hotel before spending a great evening in the lovely city. Sleep in Pokhara.

Day 7

We get an early start and travel back to Kathmandu, the nation’s capital, for the evening. You have the option of driving or taking a flight back to Kathmandu, depending on your time limits. Flying home gives you extra time to take in the magnificent landmarks dotted across the capital city as well as some alone time. Driving back to the city takes more time, but in exchange, you get breath-taking vistas of the rolling countryside next to the peaceful Trishuli River. Spend the night in Kathmandu.

What to Bring?


The Annapurna Short Trek is a popular option for people looking for a shorter trekking adventure in Nepal’s Annapurna region. This trek is intended for hikers with limited time or who choose a less challenging choice but still want to see the spectacular grandeur of the Himalayas. The Annapurna Short Trek normally lasts 5 to 7 days and begins and ends in Nayapul, with a picturesque path that takes you past quaint villages, lush woods, terraced fields, and spectacular mountain vistas. The journey offers views of beautiful peaks like as Annapurna, Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), and Dhaulagiri. Because it is shorter in duration and lower in height than longer Annapurna treks, it is accessible to a wide range of trekkers, including beginners and families. It is an excellent way to see the region’s cultural richness, interact with local communities, and appreciate the natural beauty without committing to a more physically challenging and time-consuming walk.

The Annapurna Short Trek is best done in the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). These months provide the best weather and route conditions for Annapurna trekking. Spring brings with it temperate temperatures, blooming flowers, and bright skies, whilst fall brings with it stable weather, excellent visibility, and moderate temperatures. With moderate daytime temperatures and comparatively milder evenings, both seasons give a good trekking experience. It’s vital to know that winter can be bitterly cold with heavy snowfall, and the monsoon season brings rain and poor visibility, both of which make the Annapurna Short Trek less appealing.

The possibility of altitude sickness during the Annapurna Short Trek is low. The highest point reached on this walk is usually around 3,210 meters (10,531 feet) at Poon Hill, which is not considered a high enough height to offer a substantial danger of altitude sickness. However, due to variations in acclimatization, individuals may still have mild symptoms of altitude sickness, such as headache, dizziness, or weariness. It’s critical to rise carefully, stay hydrated, and pay attention to your body. If any symptoms appear, it is best to descend to a lower altitude and rest until they pass. In terms of altitude sickness, the Annapurna Short walk is regarded a relatively safe walk, but it’s always a good idea to be aware of the symptoms and take the appropriate precautions to guarantee a safe and pleasurable trekking experience.

The Annapurna Short Trek is a moderate-level trek appropriate for trekkers with basic fitness and trekking expertise. The trail has both uphill and downhill sections, stone steps, and a few severe climbs. Poon Hill, the trek’s highest point, is roughly 3,210 meters (10,531 feet). While not as physically difficult as longer and higher altitude climbs in the Annapurna region, the journey nevertheless necessitates a respectable level of fitness and endurance. The walk normally lasts 5 to 7 days, allowing for a more leisurely pace. Most trekkers may successfully complete the Annapurna Short Trek with sufficient preparation, including physical fitness training and prior hiking experience.
