You have one week to spend in Nepal, but you’re really interested in reaching the Base Camp of Annapurna. This is a completely achievable trip with our Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek. Whether you have two weeks or one week for trekking, you can do it depending on your timeframe. Based on your holiday time and preferences, we can select the best itinerary from the available options.

Typically, trekking to Annapurna Base Camp takes takes 9 to 10 days, including the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking. However, due to road accessibility these days, we can shorten the ABC Trek and opt for the Short Trek to Annapurna Base Camp. Regarding a short-duration trek to ABC, we have two perfect itineraries. One is 5-day trek and another one is 7-day trek to ABC.

The Annapurna Base Camp is a paradise for adventure enthusiasts and nature lovers, offering breathtaking views, diverse landscapes, and an unforgettable experience. It is a renowned trekking route located in the Annapurna Conservation Area of Nepal.

In this package, we highlight the wonders of the Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek, which is a condensed version of the classic route. This trek allows trekkers to immerse themselves in the majestic beauty of the region within a shorter timeframe, ranging from 5 to 7 days.

Review of Trail – Why Annapurna Base Camp Short Trek ?

Those who want a shorter trek but want to see the Annapurna range, including Annapurna I, should consider the short version of the ABC trek. The Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek is perfect for those who want to trek to the base of the 10th tallest peak in the world in 4 nights and 5 days from Pokhara.

Best Itinerary for SHORT ANNAPURNA BASE CAMP TREK 

The itinerary for the Annapurna Base Camp Trek can vary based on the chosen route and mode of transportation, such as between Kathmandu and Pokhara.

Our itinerary offers the three most popular options, including the classic ABC trek and the latest trend of a shorter trek to the base camp. These options include a 5-day shortest trek, a 7-day short itinerary, and a 9-day itinerary that includes both the ABC trek and Poon Hill. Without further ado, let’s jump into its itinerary.

Which itinerary is best for ABC (5 days, 7 days, or 9 days)?

The best itinerary for you depends on your personal preferences. For those who have a two-week vacation, a 9-day package that includes two of the most popular routes in the Annapurna Region is ideal. You can spend the remaining time exploring the city of Kathmandu.

For those who have a limited time frame of 5 to 7 days for trekking and want to visit the base camp, the 5-day shortest itinerary or the 7-day short itinerary is the best option. This 7-day trek begins in Dhampus and ends in Modkyu.

How to do ABC trek in 5 days?
