But there's more to the Annapurna Base Camp Trek than the spectacular scenery alone. This route is often renowned as the best trek in the country when it comes to cultural diversity and the opportunity to become acquainted with Nepali people from a variety of ethnic backgrounds.

The mountain communities here in the Annapurna region are populated by Gurung and Magar villages, and we'll visit a number of monasteries, temples, and shrines that are critically important to their primarily Buddhist faith.

  • Driving Hrs: 6-7 approx
  • Maximum Elevation: 830m/2,713ft

The first day of our Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek begins in the scenic lakeside city of Pokhara. After enjoying a hearty breakfast, we’ll meet our driver and travel to a small village called Birethanti to collect our trekking permits. Then we’ll drive a bit further to reach the trailhead at Siwai, for a total of about two hours on the road this morning. It’s all on foot from here, and our trek gets underway in earnest as we cross picturesque suspension bridges, hike past sparkling waterfalls, and cross alpine meadows where yaks graze and Gurung villagers tend to crops of buckwheat and millet. As we approach our destination of Chhomrong or go a little further to Sinuwa, we’ll even start to enjoy some breathtaking views of snowcapped mountains.

Chhomrong itself is a sprawling hillside village where you’ll meet plenty of friendly Gurung villagers as we settle into our accommodations. We’ll be staying at one of the local trekking lodges or teahouses. This is how overnight trekking is usually done in Nepal, and you’ll reap the rewards of a home-cooked meal and a warm place to sleep. Once we get checked in, you can relax in the village with a hot mug of tea as dusk gathers over the summits of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, and the fishtail-shaped Machapuchare.

  • Accommodation Type: Trekking Lodge (Tea House)
  • Hike Distance : 4-5 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch,& Dinner (included)
  • Maximum Elevation: 2,165m / 7,105ft

Welcome the morning sunrise with a delicious breakfast and a cup of fresh tea as the light breaks over the mountains. After enjoying the marvelous view, we’ll begin our second day of trekking. Today’s trail starts with a stone staircase leading down for about an hour to the churning waters of the Chhomrong Khola river. We’ll cross a dramatic suspension bridge to reach the opposite bank before climbing the second series of stone stairs for another two hours. This will bring us to the little community of Sinuwa, where we’ll take a short break to soak in the tremendous view from 2,350 meters above sea level.

The second portion of today’s hike brings us through a quiet forest of bamboo, oak, and rhododendron for approximately two hours. The flatter terrain in the dense woodland here will serve as a brief respite before we begin the steep ascent to the little villages known as Bamboo and Dovan. We’ll pass through these communities and make our final ascent to the aptly-named Himalaya or make a little further up to Deurali. There we’ll enjoy a well-earned hot meal and a good night’s sleep at one of the best guesthouses in town.

  • Accommodation Type: Trekking Lodge (Tea House)
  • Hike Distance: 6-7 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch,& Dinner (included)
  • Maximum Elevation: 2,890m / 9,425ft

Today we’ll earn the unique distinction of visiting not one, but two mountaineering base camps. We’ll hit the trail right after breakfast, and we can expect to trek for about four hours in total. This is perhaps the most exciting day of our Himalayan adventure, and we’ll begin by climbing for two hours to the astounding natural amphitheater of mountains known as the Annapurna Sanctuary. This is where we’ll find Machapuchare Base Camp at an elevation of 3,700 meters. From here, you’ll get splendid views of Machapuchare, Gangapurna, and the entire Annapurna massif.

After a short break for tea, we’ll continue across the dry moraine for two more hours and make the final push towards Annapurna Base Camp itself. The camp is situated at 4,130 meters in elevation, which represents the highest point on the entire Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek. The views here are nothing short of sublime: prayer flags are snapping in the wind, climbers and hikers are celebrating their achievements, and you’re completely surrounded by mountains. The panoramic vista from the base camp encompasses Machapuchare, Annapurna South, Annapurna III, Gandharva Chuli, and Gangapurna. But the star of the show is Annapurna I, stretching to an unbelievable 8,091 meters in height. We’ll spend the rest of the day at base camp enjoying the views and overnight at a nearby trekking lodge.

  • Accommodation Type: Trekking Lodge (Tea House)
  • Hike Distance: 5-6 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch,& Dinner (included)
  • Maximum Elevation: 4,130m / 13,550ft

If you thought the views last night were spectacular, wait until you stand witness to the near-vertical south face of Annapurna-I washed in the golden glow of sunrise. We’ll linger over our breakfast to make the most of this phenomenon, taking plenty of time to bask in the unrivaled splendor of Annapurna Base Camp’s 360-degree Himalayan views.

When you’re ready to move on, we’ll pack up our things and retrace our steps back to the village of Bamboo or the option to stand a little further to Sinuwa. As we pass idyllic homesteads and hike through alpine valleys and verdant woodlands, you’ll begin to appreciate how the trail presents an entirely different aspect when traveled in reverse. The terrain will also be somewhat easier to navigate now that we’ve begun our long descent from the high altitudes of base camp. After reaching Sinuwa, we’ll get checked in at another comfortable trekking lodge and have the afternoon and evening at our leisure.

  • Accommodation Type: Trekking Lodge (Tea House)
  • Hike Distance: 6-7 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch,& Dinner (included)
  • Maximum Elevation: 2,150m / 7,100ft

Our overland adventure continues in reverse this morning as we follow winding trails along with terraced fields and tread secluded paths through sun-dappled stands of oak and rhododendron. After passing through the familiar village of Chhomrong, we’ll take a steep detour to the popular Jhinu Danda hot springs. These natural spring-fed pools are a fantastic place to relax and let the stress of hiking melt away from your body. The pools are situated in the scenic river canyon of the Modi Khola, and we’ll stop here for some well-deserved rest and relaxation.

After drying off, we’ll shoulder our packs once more and begin the final two-hour hike back to Siwai, where we first joined the trailhead at the start of our Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek. When we arrive in town, we’ll link up with a local taxi or bus to drive back to Pokhara. This last stretch of road takes between two and three hours to cover. Back in Pokhara, we’ll get checked in at our hotel with plenty of time left to take a stroll in town, visit Lake Phewa, and dig into a sumptuous meal as the reward for all of our hard trekking. BTW, if you intend to travel back on the same day or the next day from Pokhara, then we will be happy to arrange free transport by tourist bus from Pokhara - Kathmandu.

However you choose to travel, we’ve got one more evening of celebration and revelry in store for you. Our last night in the vibrant capital of Nepal serves as a great opportunity to experience some of the best traditional and cultural points of interest which can be found here in Pokhara / Kathmandu. Some of the must-see religious attractions and other activities such as paragliding, bunjy jumping, and city tours in the cities are Pokhara and Kathmandu, including the most popular places like Boudhanath and Swayambhunath stupas, as well as Kathmandu Durbar Square. When you’ve had your fill of sightseeing, we’ll gather together for a farewell dinner at one of the best restaurants in town. 

Whether you’re departing Nepal tonight or spending another night in your hotel, remember that Alpine Ramble Treks provides complimentary transfers to Tribhuvan International Airport when it’s time to leave. Hosting your Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek has been our pleasure, and we hope you’ve had an unforgettable time in the western Himalayas. We can’t wait to welcome you back to Nepal!

Absolutely, any date available for the Annapurna base camp trek as per your holidays. We customize the trip Itinerary on your own time and preferences at any time of the year.

Any one of us can feel high altitude sickness if we are not aware of this. In order to avoid the high altitude sickness, there are certain things that we should consider, 

  • Ascend Slowly
  • Avoid Alcohol, Cigarettes & Tobacco
  • Proper Acclimatization Rest and walk slowly
  • Drink plenty of water - at least 3 liters of a day
  • Eat well and Plenty- mostly soups items like garlic, ginger, etc
  • Use the Diamox as per the Doctor's instructors if AMS symptoms grew

Yes, during the pre-winter, the storms can bring snow even at the lower regions of the Annapurna region. During the winter especially in the mid-winter, snow covers most of the trails in this area. This route and the base camp is filled with so much snow and a glacier during the winter and pre-winter season in Nepal.

A regular bottle of water is available anywhere in the Annapurna region of Nepal. Buying mineral (regular-bottle) water from shops or tea houses situated on the trails is relatively cheaper than in the Everest region. It costs somewhere between RS 50- 200. As another option, carrying reusable water bottles and various forms of water purification agents is another possibility where tap or stream water can be purified before drinking on the trails. You will be helped to refill water in the bottles at the tea houses or in the streams or rivers available abundantly on the trail by your guides or locals at request.

The accommodation on the Annapurna base camp trek is pretty convenient and it’s much the same as it is in the Everest base camp trek or Langtang valley trek. We always provide the best tea houses or trekking lodges for sleeping overnight during the trek in the mountains, the rooms are booked in the best lodge with two beds in each room with western toilet facilities and solar hot showers, wherever available. However, the higher we climb lower the facility we get due to the lack of facilities at such higher areas. As we ascend higher above Bambo and towards the base camp, the accommodation from these places will be basic with shared toilets and bucket shower, the room is normally dumetry type with 2-4 beds in a room.

    Amazing experience.Not a frequent trekker/hiker i hopped on to this tour all by coincidence. Whole experience was beyond amazing and out of expectations. Price for value is amazing. It was $800usd includes everything from meals, trekking guides, porter, transportation, accommodation, just to name a few. All for 7-8 days what more can i ask for. (Porter:Gagan Shing)(Trekking guide: Jiten Rai) they are very kind and helping all the time, make sure you request for them! The trek itself was amazing, first 4 days were trekking around 15km per day, in winding jungles gorges. The fifth day was the highlight, we went from Himalaya to MBC and ABC. We saw glacier, mountains, even avalanche in a small scale. It wasnt the main season in late December but i can tell you it should be even better since there were fewer tourists and it would snow sometimes! It is also the driest season so weather is ALWAYS GOOD. It was cold for me as someone from Hong Kong, at sea level, roughly (-12 to -15) at night. But when youre surrounded by mountains ranges like that, you basically forget everything. Viewing sunrise and sunset were a must. See how the sun turns the white snowy mountains to orange in colour. Lastly, make sure you tip the porter cuz its all hard-work, he carries all your unnecessary belonging up to the ABC camp with you, with just normal sneakers. Make sure giving good tips as a way to support locals and businesses here. Himalayas is amazing, make sure you protect it on the way and try to create less garbage because the garbage handling system here is basically non existent, what you produce is going straight into the forest.

    It is very difficult to express in words the experiences lived during the 15 days that I had the privilege of being in Nepal and meeting and living with such friendly, pleasant, honest people who are always willing to help in every way necessary. Had an amazing and perfect experience with Alpine Ramble Treks! Our guide Sujal could not be better trained, prudent, and experienced. Likewise Dil, a memorable human being and always willing to solve any problems with agility, patience, and is extremely captivating in personal relationships. The only thing I can cite as regret is not doing more trekking with Alpine Ramble Treks and not staying longer in Nepal. From the first contact via email to the transfer to the airport, you will be fully supported by unforgettable people. If you go to Nepal, do not hesitate to explore this wonderful country with the ART team, you will undoubtedly be in the best company and with not only professionals but a big and rewarding family. I recommend them I intend to return in 2024 for more challenging adventures, with ART, of course! Warm hugs.

    We had an amazing trek! This is one of our favorite experiences (ever!?). Dilman, our guide and Lokendra our porter were excellent -- I cannot say enough good things about them! Dil was informative and very responsive in the weeks prior to the trek, helping us ensure we had all that we needed.

    I would highly recommend Dilman as a guide -- his experience brought a calm assurance as we ascended (and descended!) as well as amazing stories. His humor and poise, helped us through our 5 day trek. Along the way he shared with us about his culture, and how it related to the things we saw and experienced.
    This trek was not an easy feat, but he helped us every step of the way, and we are grateful to have had him as our guide!

    Lokendra is an excellent porter, he remained up-beat as he lugged our stuff up and down from the base camp. His humor too helped us with the challenge of this trek. At each tea house he and Dilman made sure we had everything we needed!

    I would 1000% recommend both Alpine Ramble for your next Nepal trek, Dilman as your guide and Lokendra as your porter! You will be in great hands, and have a marvelous time!

    I am very grateful to have found the Alpine Ramble team to arrange this trek for me. Dil has been in touch with me before and during my stay in Nepal. I never have to worry about anything from the time I landed in Kathmandu. They treated me as a family and made me feel safe and taken care of. When I didn’t felt good in the middle of the night, Dil came rushing and brought me to the hospital to make sure I am okay before the trekking without any cost. The team will extend way above beyond what a regular tour agency can offer and I would definitely recommend this team especially if you are a solo traveler. They will not hard sell and take advantage but they will only recommend you some options based on their expertise.

    The team is also flexible and understandable. My guide Krishna and porter Lucas are my brothers during the trek and they have arranged the best logging and let me choose which food I want to eat. They would brief me on our timeline every now and then. Krishna will be the one leading the way and heading the team and Lucas acts as a sweeper to make sure I am never left alone at the trail. Meaning I am guarded. There was never a time I felt unsafe.

    I had a great dinner and they showed us their cultural dances when we arrived in Kathmandu. I look forward to working with them again on my next visit to Nepal.

    My boyfriend and I completed the 5 day Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) trek in early June 2019 and we had just the best time.

    From the moment we sent our first enquiry to Alpine Ramble we knew we were in safe hands as Dil (the owner) responded to us immediately and answered all our questions quickly and fully.

    From that moment on we were well looked after. ART picked us up from the airport (and greeted us with marigold garlands which was a lovely touch), they also came to our hotel to talk us through the itinerary and lent us sleeping bags and a waterproof duffel bag for the trek.

    ART arranged everything for us: transport from Kathmandu to Pokhara, permits, food, accommodation and they even let us change our return date so we were able to spend some extra time exploring Pokhara and then moving on to Chitwan. They were so flexible and helpful which made everything so easy for us.

    Our guide Laxman and porter Samir were very kind, knowledgeable, and they went out of their way to make sure we were happy, comfortable and always having a great time (including singing songs for us during some of the harder parts of the trek).

    I couldn’t recommend ART strongly enough. They were brilliant and we will definitely use them again if we return to Nepal in the future.
