The classic Annapurna circuit for 6 days trek is an incredibly speckled exciting journey into the Annapurna region. This is a short version of the Annapurna trek that is designed for those who want to experience the beauty of nature and culture in a short time.

Join us on this short excursion and enjoy the ancient Buddhist monasteries, Hindu temples, bleak High Mountain passes, dramatic deep gorge in the world, charming industrialized villages, and at every twist and unlike the view of the Annapurna apex.

The Annapurna circuit trek is one of the most renowned journeys in the Himalayas. It takes into the world’s 10th highest peak of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri to the other side, it’s a round trip that starts walking from the terraces field to the alpine desert crossing the world’s highest trekking pass of Throng La (5416m).

Annapurna Round Trek 6-Day itinerary has been designed by Alpine Ramble Treks for all adventure enthusiasts to be immersed in nature. This is an alternative way to be experienced for those who can not manage more than 2 weeks of holidays to be part of the normal Annapurna circuit trek of 12 days.

ACT trek within 6 days' time is absolutely tricky in terms of distance and altitude but it is not impossible to conquer as long as you have a deep determination and self-courage.

The Annapurna Circuit trek is truly an epic adventure trekking experience that has become one of the most visited trekking routes in Nepal. The views of the Himalayan mountains like Annapurna, Gangapurna, Tilicho Peak, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Throng Peak, Dhaulagiri, and many other peaks are just nothing but outstanding.

Our short version of the Annapurna Circuit trek starts right after an adventurous and scenic drive from the beautiful city of Kathmandu to the small local town of Chame via Besisahar, Chame is a beautiful mountain village located at the foothills of Annapurna, the gateway to the Annapurna Circuit trek.

We start trekking from here, walking through the fascinating Gurung and lama villages, lush forests of rhododendrons, oaks, pines, and jumpers, overlooking the majestic Mt. Lamjung Himal, Gangapurna, Annapurna, II, III, Annapurna IV, and many more.

Crossing ancient monasteries, traditional local villages, Alpine landscapes, and the lifestyle of the unique mountain people, adding on more overwhelming views of the majestic Himalayan peaks, alpine lakes, and glaciers are some of the highlights among many.

Moreover, the Annapurna circuit trek 6 days is a fairly challenging trek than the Annapurna base camp and Langtang valley trek that takes you from the lowlands of Kathmandu all the way up to cross the Throng La (5416m) - the highest point of the trek.

If you are someone who can walk 5-6 hours a walk each day without any acclimatization then this one's for you. Consider the season to go on this trek, as we experienced based on our experiences for 15 years of trekking in this region.

We found the best time of the year to go on this trek is during the Spring (March, April, May, and June) and Autumn (Aug, September, October, and November) seasons. These two seasons are perfectly fine to trek here as it stays at a moderate temperature almost every day and is comfortable for hiking though.

Come to explore the place now, we at Alpine Ramble organize this trip at any time of the year based on your time and interest with flexible itineraries, groups, and costs. Need more help or assistance to plan a trip properly?

On our first day of the journey, grab our breakfast at the hotel and we start our journey into the hills on a winding road along the Trishuli River. On the way, we admire terraced farms and beautiful huts. After reaching a juncture at Mugling, we move straight ahead towards Pokhara. At Dumre, we leave the previous trail and head north to Besisahar. We change our vehicle to Chame, another 4-5 hours of drive from Besisahar takes us to Chame, the starting point of our trek. Overnight in Chame.

On the second day of our trek, we are relatively going to take a steep and narrow path through a very dense forest that will bring us to the dramatic curved rock face, rising 1500m from the river. This is probably the steepest part of the Marshyangdi Valley, so steep that the trail is carved into the vertical rock. After passing this last bit of rock, the valley opens up with majestic vistas. And right, where the valley widens, stands the Paungda Danda, a massive sloping rock face that rises over 5,000ft (1500m) above the trail. We trek for a while before reaching Lower Pisang where we spend the night. Or if you are not that much tired you may hike another 20-30 minutes further to Upper Pisang, the view from this point is slightly better!

As we finished our breakfast at the lodge in Pisang, we get set for our hike towards Manag. There are two routes to Manang but we follow the trail that takes us to Upper Pisang via Geru. This trail guarantees excellent views of the beautiful landscape and the mighty mountains including Annapurna and Pisang. We begin to notice a contrast in the landscape and vegetation today. The cold and dry climate also creates a much harsher environment. Our short visit to Barge monastery, the largest monastery in the entire district of Manang will be memorable. The views are equally beautiful but the Upper valley looks more beautiful with the pristine lake but it requires a little longer hike than the lower one to reach Manang. Overnight at Manang.

Crossing Thorong La pass, one of the highest passes in the world, will be heading down to Muktinath village where we get our jeep to travel to Jomsom for 2 hours drive. Still being on the top of Throng La is a worth experience. The views are breathtaking everywhere, we celebrate the moment of being here and yes it is a great achievement, We can take a few photos before heading to Muktinath and Jomsom Valley at the foot of the Thorong La pass.
