Our Annapurna Circuit Short Trek is a condensed 6-day experience, designed for those passionate about trekking but limited by time. Starting in Kathmandu, we transport you by bus to Besisahar, where we handle permit registrations. From Besisahar, the journey continues with a scenic jeep drive to Chame.
The heart of the trek begins in Chame and takes you to Pisang, winding through a picturesque forest trail. Along this path, trekkers can admire the Paungda Danda Rock. From Pisang, the trail leads to Manang, offering breathtaking views of Annapurna peaks such as Annapurna II, III, IV, and Gangapurna. The trek then progresses to Ledar and onto Thorong Phedi. A major highlight is the fifth day, where trekkers cross the Thorong La High Pass to reach Muktinath, a sacred site revered by both Hindus and Buddhists. After a restful night in Jomsom, the journey culminates with a flight to Pokhara.
This 6-day Annapurna circuit trek, requiring trekkers to hike 6-7 hours daily, is an alternative to our 17-day longer Annapurna circuit trek to the entire Annapurna region. It provides a unique blend of nature's beauty and cultural richness of the region
