Overview

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.

So, are you ready for this lively adventure? March to May and September to November can be the best time to opt for this trek. Do not forget to write to us or give us a direct call in case of any travel-related help!

Reviews

Great Trekking Experience

I did the ABC Trek with them. It was a great trekking experience. We only had 12 days, so we customized their 14-day trip to make it a 12-day trek to Annapurna. The company had everything organized carefully, and the trip was very well executed. Ram, the guide, was very helpful throughout the whole trek. Thank you, Ram.

This Was By Far One Of Best Services

This was by far one of the best services I'd gotten. The trip was super challenging and super rewarding all at once! Sanjib and Ram were both excellent and knowledgeable. We trekked to Annapurna Base Camp in November, and it was by far our best trekking experience. They were also incredibly caring, which is important when you are trekking to high altitudes where you have never been before. They always ask how we feel and always check our pulses. Thank you for caring for us throughout the trek. I highly recommend using Heaven Himalaya for any hikes in Nepal.

Amazing Post-COVID EBC Trek

Thank You for making our post-COVID EBC trek amazing. The guides, porters, and Mr. Ram did a great job from the beginning of our COVID test at a hotel in Kathmandu till our farewell in a restaurant in Thamel. We were at our own pace and never hurried. We felt safe and immensely enjoyed our Nepal vacation. With heaven Himalaya, nothing goes wrong. I highly recommend them to other travelers who will book Mt. Everest Base Camp Trek.
