What could be more captivating? It’s a place where heaven turns out to be a myth and Annapurna Base Camp – an inevitable truth. Many visitors come to Nepal each year to relish the beauty of Annapurna Base Camp, but it lays a few backs because of time constraints. Sadly, many visitors have to return because they do not have enough time to accomplish the standard trek to ABC (Annapurna Base Camp). Keeping the fact into consideration, Heaven Himalaya presents a concise form of Annapurna Base Camp Trek, i.e., Annapurna Base Camp Short Trek.

A short and easy trip to Annapurna Base Camp

Annapurna Base Camp Short Trek is a short and easy trek that takes us to the dreamland of many fellow travelers, i.e., to the Annapurna Base Camp. Also, regarded as Annapurna Sanctuary, the journey is full of fun, adventure, and mountain views. It starts with a short flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara. From Pokhara, we climb up slowly and gradually to Tikhedhunga and then to Ghorepani village. Poonhill is a popular viewpoint on the trail. Applauding the mesmerizing views of sunrise and mountains from Poonhill, the trail traverses through dense forests and settlement areas to Sinwa.

Further, we climb up to Deurali and then to Annapurna Base Camp. As soon as we reach the base camp, we will be blessed with the empowering views of mountains such as Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Gangapurna, Mt. Macchapucchre, Mt. Hiunchuli, Mt. Lamjung, Mt. Nilgiri, and many more. After enjoying some quality time in the base camp, we drop to Bamboo and then to Pokhara via Jhinu Danda. In this way, we can accomplish the Annapurna Base Camp Trek just in 11 days.

Enjoy the verdant hills, valleys, forests with a rich ecosystem and biodiversity.

This trek is popular for mountain views and scenic views of verdant hills, valleys, and forests. The trail moves amidst Annapurna National Park, home to many species of birds, animals, floras, and faunas. So, if lucky, one may glimpse short animals like rhesus monkeys, bear, leopard, musk deer, etc. within the dense wood of pine, oak, and rhododendron. Apart from this, the trek introduces us to the rich culture of various ethnic groups living in the area. Walking past the ethnic villages on the route is an opportunity to enjoy locals’ great hospitality and know about the locals, their culture, custom, and lifestyle.

Best Days of My Life

I and my colleagues visited Nepal back in the year 2017. I was not an experienced hiker but anyway chose Annapurna Base Camp Trek with a trekking agency in Nepal. It was like a challenge for me to trek to the 4000 m altitude, but Mr. Ram helped us in every way possible. He was there from the start of our trekking journey in Pokhara to our end days in Kathmandu. Ram kept pushing me forward and even waited for me to catch the other team. He guided me from choosing plain food to meditating. Although I was a victim of altitude sickness and couldn't enjoy the trek to the fullest, I am very grateful to have chosen him.

Annapurna Base Camp is a beautiful place in the Himalayas. The Gurung Village, Poonhill, Pokhara every place was just outstanding.
I have now developed a hiking attitude, and I have been training for the EBC trek now. I can't wait to visit the Himalayas again.

Perfectly Organized Upper Mustang Trek

All thanks to Mr. Ram for organizing the Upper Mustang, trekking perfectly from beginning to end. I, along with my bunch of friends, had a delightful experience with the Heaven Himalaya team. For us, it is the best trekking agency in Nepal. The guides and porters were very flexible and took care of everything around us.

I recommend everyone to try these young guys to go hiking in Nepal.

Wonderful Trekking Experience

My wife and I visited Upper Mustang and were lucky to have chosen Heaven Himalaya. We had a wonderful experience trekking in Upper Mustang. As soon as we landed in TIA, we were welcomed by Ram. He was very easy and responsive to work with. He explained all the queries we had and gave a brief description of the tour. As we were watching videos and reading blogs about Upper Mustang, we had a lot of expectations about the place and the trekking agency we were working with. We had a private 18-day tour with a porter. And to be honest, we found everything beyond our expectations. The hills, mountains, monasteries were all amazing, especially Lo Manthang is a great place to visit. Our guide was also equally supportive and friendly. The team made our trek more enjoyable. While writing this, it reminded me of the days we had on the trails. Thank You again for the wonderful experience. Best wishes to Jason and Esha. We will definitely love to return and probably do the Everest base camp Trek this time.

Trip of a lifetime- Annapurna Circuit Trek

Heaven Himalaya Team offers a magnificently arranged trekking involvement in Nepal. Ramhari answered instantly to all my messages. They make a solid effort to make your vacation in Nepal an extraordinary one and genuinely went well beyond my desires.

I couldn't remember the name of the guide but my boy, you were more than amazing. I wish you good luck in the days to come.

Everything from pickup to trekking in the mountains was very professional with excellent service.

So, I strongly suggest everyone and will trek with Heaven Himalaya again in the future.

Glorious Experience in EBC Trek

We did an EBC trek with Ram and his team back in April 2019, and it was a glorious experience. Ram is a very knowledgeable, resourceful, and very helpful guide. 2 of us got unwell during the trek, and he was very prompt and took care of us in any way that was available.

We enjoyed our chat and his sense of humor along the trail and at the teahouses. He even got us a special breakfast and pickle salad at Namche Bazaar and always fulfilled the strange request with our dietary needs. EBC trek is amazing. With Ram, it is even more spectacular. Thanks for the amazing trip. Looking forward to island peak climb in the future.
