6 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek Itinerary and Best Price 

6 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek is a perfect introduction to trekkers wanting to explore the Himalayas in a short time. It is a short ABC trek package. So the time you'll be spending in the mountains is limited, however, the experience you will get in these six days is remarkable. Our 6 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek is an adventure to the lap of the tenth-highest mountain in the world, located in the famous Annapurna region. 

Unlike the usual Annapurna base camp trek, this short itinerary begins and ends at Pokhara. Following the Modi Khola (river), you will gradually walk through lush forests of rhododendron, pine, bamboo, etc. On the way, you will cross suspension bridges, walk alongside verdant hillsides, pass by enchanting waterfalls, and tiptoe around terraces. 

The 6 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek itinerary includes night stops at beautiful villages like Chhomrong (2,150 m), Himalaya (2,920 m), Jhinu Danda (1,780 m), etc. Moreover, it is the only base camp trek in Nepal that lets you spend the night at the base camp itself, which is very unlike the popular Everest base camp trekking or Mardi Himal base camp trek. 

Trekking inside the Annapurna Conservation Area further adds more character to the venture. The diverse vegetation and exotic flora & fauna are one of the highlights of the short Annapurna Base Camp trek. You may get to see exotic birds too. Resided by different ethnic groups, the Annapurna region is quite vibrant, when it comes to culture and traditions. The short Annapurna base camp trail itself houses many stupas, monasteries, temples, prayer wheels, and prayer flags. 

Machhapuchhre base camp (MBC) is the bonus on this short 6 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek. Before reaching ABC, you will walk MBC as well as an avalanche area. The views of snow-capped mountains throughout the trail are breathtaking. You get to see many stunning mountains, including the Annapurna (8,091 m), Dhaulagiri (8,167 m), Machhapuchhre (6,993 m), Tukuche (6,920 m), Gangapurna (7,455 m), Hiunchuli (6,441 m), Annapurna South (7,219 m), Tent Peak (5,695 m), etc. 

Hinku Cave is very famous along the way. After Annapurna base camp (4,130 m)comes the natural hot spring in Jhinu Danda. You get the best option to get rid of your sore muscles in the hot springs (paid). The trail from Jhinu Danda further drops down to Nayapul, where the trek ends. One of the best times to do the 6 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek is in spring. The trail will be blooming with varieties of flowers. You can also join the 6 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek in autumn.
