Trip Introduction 

Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek, is the fastest way to reach the bottom and the heart of the world's tenth highest Mt. Annapurna within a time frame of 6-7 days. An amazing feat to accomplish more than 6 to 7 hours or less in some areas of treks, where you can test your stamina and physical fitness on this scenic Annapurna Base Camp Express Trekking. Adventure for physically fit people with minimum time and budget for Nepal holidays, but with an urge and interest to get close to the mountains and its glaciers, this is the perfect option and choice where altitude gains are not much of a problem. Altitude gains are slow and gradual as you walk from one place to other villages and overnight stops, where you get acclimatized during the trek and will be surprised on reaching the final destination at Annapurna base camp within the scenic sanctuary.

Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek starts and ends at beautiful Pokhara a renowned touristic spot in the whole Himalayas and probably in the world blessed with the natural beauty of mountains and lakes. From Pokhara head towards mid and high hills covered with dense forest with constant views of Annapurna Himalaya with majestic Machhapuchare ‘Fish Tail’ peak. As the walk continues heading past Ghandruk and Chomrong large Gurung villages enriched with colorful customs and culture of Buddhism practice and then entering into a deep gorge of Modi River as our route follows all the way to its glacial source at Annapurna base camp. Probably the only place in the whole Himalaya range where you can find the comfort of nice and cozy lodges at Annapurna base camp, here you marvel at the glorious views and then head back downhill back into green woodland. Finally, our adventure completes walking into Jhinu Danda a village with a hot spring where you can enjoy a refreshing bath in a natural hot spring before walking with a drive back to Pokhara with an amazing and adventurous time on Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

BEST AGENCY if looking to hike Annapurna / Everest Base Camp / Langtang!!!

30th October, 2019

My friends and I hiked the Annapurna Base Camp trek and really enjoyed our experience. Our guide was super fun and knowledgeable, the logistics were perfectly planned by the agency (accommodation, transport, etc), the price was fair, and we always felt that we could go at our own pace without feeling rushed. I'm planning to come back again to do Everest Base Camp and will for sure reach out to this agency again.

Date of experience: September 2019

Annapurna Base Camp - AMAZING LIFETIME EXPERIENCE

29th November, 2018

I got in contact with Dev before leaving for Nepal. He made sure I was well welcomed in Nepal and organized my pick up arrival with his brother as he was trekking.

We then met in Bhaktapur while I was traveling and drank a nice tea together.

He organized my bus tickets to Pokhara from Kathmandu and return which was really helpful. He came to the bus station with me to make sure everything went well.

We then met in Pokhara for the trek. Dev was very flexible as I brought along with me two friends who joined the trek.
We had the best time with him, his son, and our porter Bijaya He really created a familial and safe space during the whole trek.
Singing, dancing, and eating well was our daily program along with long hours of walking of course.I would send all of my friends to Dev. He knows every corner of every tour.
Not to mention that he saved people during the trek when a snowstorm hit Deurali and further to ABC. He made sure we were fine all the time.
Thank you so much Dev.
Best regards,

Unforgettable trip in the world of mountains!

18th October, 2019

In the end of September 2018, we (a group of 3 young women) decided to take the opportunity to be in Nepal to do a trip to the Annapurna Basecamp in the heart of the Himalayas.
Well, what shall I say - it became one of the best things I've ever experienced in all my life. Not only that nature is so stunningly beautiful and the atmosphere in the mountains itself is wonderful - but also that we had Dev as our guide made this week of trekking an immense gift to us. I can only highly recommend Dev! If you want, he explains everything about the Napli culture to you, he is always very polite and ready to help you.
thank you so much Dev for this wonderful week!

11th October, 2022

I and five other friends emailed the company mountain eco treks to do the Annapurna base camp in October 2022. and we got the answers we wanted as quickly as possible. They were professional the entire time and everything went according to plan. Also, the guide with us on our journey was Bhakta Bahadur Tamang.He was very experienced and trustworthy. He really cared about taking care of us, we felt happy and safe around him. It is very difficult to get a room on the Annapurna trail in the October season as there are many tourists but our guide managed it easily as he is a popular person in that area.
Overall our trip was unforgettable and memorable. We especially want to thank our guide, Bhakta, for taking care of our food, water, and our safety needs.
I leave with a promise to meet again on another adventure

Amazing guide !

15th September, 2019

Dev was a very careful and patient guide. He made sure we were always comfortable during the trek and took care of most of the organization. His knowledge of the trek path and villages along the way improved the experience as we really immersed ourselves into the Annapurna spirit. Dev became a friend. Would 100% recommend this guide either for solo or group treks

Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Overview And Highlights

 Highlights of trekking

"Fast and scenic way to Annapurna base camp and beautiful Sanctuary, Explore Gurung farm villages enriched with the ancient culture of great interest, From low warm area to cooler alpine hills and into the arctic zone of ice and glaciers, The best short adventure with least altitude sickness problem on the walks, Lovely cool alpine forest of tall rhododendron-magnolia-pines and fir tree lines, In the heart of Annapurna Himalaya with spectacular mountain panorama"

Trip Introduction 

Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek, is the fastest way to reach the bottom and the heart of the world's tenth highest Mt. Annapurna within a time frame of 6-7 days. An amazing feat to accomplish more than 6 to 7 hours or less in some areas of treks, where you can test your stamina and physical fitness on this scenic Annapurna Base Camp Express Trekking. Adventure for physically fit people with minimum time and budget for Nepal holidays, but with an urge and interest to get close to the mountains and its glaciers, this is the perfect option and choice where altitude gains are not much of a problem. Altitude gains are slow and gradual as you walk from one place to other villages and overnight stops, where you get acclimatized during the trek and will be surprised on reaching the final destination at Annapurna base camp within the scenic sanctuary.

Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek starts and ends at beautiful Pokhara a renowned touristic spot in the whole Himalayas and probably in the world blessed with the natural beauty of mountains and lakes. From Pokhara head towards mid and high hills covered with dense forest with constant views of Annapurna Himalaya with majestic Machhapuchare ‘Fish Tail’ peak. As the walk continues heading past Ghandruk and Chomrong large Gurung villages enriched with colorful customs and culture of Buddhism practice and then entering into a deep gorge of Modi River as our route follows all the way to its glacial source at Annapurna base camp. Probably the only place in the whole Himalaya range where you can find the comfort of nice and cozy lodges at Annapurna base camp, here you marvel at the glorious views and then head back downhill back into green woodland. Finally, our adventure completes walking into Jhinu Danda a village with a hot spring where you can enjoy a refreshing bath in a natural hot spring before walking with a drive back to Pokhara with an amazing and adventurous time on Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

BEST AGENCY if looking to hike Annapurna / Everest Base Camp / Langtang!!!

30th October, 2019

My friends and I hiked the Annapurna Base Camp trek and really enjoyed our experience. Our guide was super fun and knowledgeable, the logistics were perfectly planned by the agency (accommodation, transport, etc), the price was fair, and we always felt that we could go at our own pace without feeling rushed. I'm planning to come back again to do Everest Base Camp and will for sure reach out to this agency again.

Annapurna Base Camp - AMAZING LIFETIME EXPERIENCE

29th November, 2018

I got in contact with Dev before leaving for Nepal. He made sure I was well welcomed in Nepal and organized my pick up arrival with his brother as he was trekking.

We then met in Bhaktapur while I was traveling and drank a nice tea together.

He organized my bus tickets to Pokhara from Kathmandu and return which was really helpful. He came to the bus station with me to make sure everything went well.

We then met in Pokhara for the trek. Dev was very flexible as I brought along with me two friends who joined the trek.
We had the best time with him, his son, and our porter Bijaya He really created a familial and safe space during the whole trek.
Singing, dancing, and eating well was our daily program along with long hours of walking of course.I would send all of my friends to Dev. He knows every corner of every tour.
Not to mention that he saved people during the trek when a snowstorm hit Deurali and further to ABC. He made sure we were fine all the time.
Thank you so much Dev.
Best regards,

Unforgettable trip in the world of mountains!

18th October, 2019

In the end of September 2018, we (a group of 3 young women) decided to take the opportunity to be in Nepal to do a trip to the Annapurna Basecamp in the heart of the Himalayas.
Well, what shall I say - it became one of the best things I've ever experienced in all my life. Not only that nature is so stunningly beautiful and the atmosphere in the mountains itself is wonderful - but also that we had Dev as our guide made this week of trekking an immense gift to us. I can only highly recommend Dev! If you want, he explains everything about the Napli culture to you, he is always very polite and ready to help you.
thank you so much Dev for this wonderful week!

I and five other friends emailed the company mountain eco treks to do the Annapurna base camp in October 2022. and we got the answers we wanted as quickly as possible. They were professional the entire time and everything went according to plan. Also, the guide with us on our journey was Bhakta Bahadur Tamang.He was very experienced and trustworthy. He really cared about taking care of us, we felt happy and safe around him. It is very difficult to get a room on the Annapurna trail in the October season as there are many tourists but our guide managed it easily as he is a popular person in that area.
Overall our trip was unforgettable and memorable. We especially want to thank our guide, Bhakta, for taking care of our food, water, and our safety needs.
I leave with a promise to meet again on another adventure

Amazing guide !

15th September, 2019

Dev was a very careful and patient guide. He made sure we were always comfortable during the trek and took care of most of the organization. His knowledge of the trek path and villages along the way improved the experience as we really immersed ourselves into the Annapurna spirit. Dev became a friend. Would 100% recommend this guide either for solo or group treks
