8 Days Annapurna Base Camp short Trek in Nepal

The journey is full of exciting Gurung Villages, green lush forests and many uphill downhill terrains. Trekkers will feel joyous as they would explore through Himalayan and hilly landscape all together. The journey represents the most exciting tales of Nepal’s diversified trekking region i.e. Annapurna region. The trip would be a bonus act of traveling as it encompasses Ghandruk, Annapurna Base Camp, natural hot springs at Jhinu and Lake City Pokhara.

The trip of 8 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek starts similar to regular longer Annapurna Base Camp trekking via Ghorepani Poon Hill Route. However, trekkers take the route of Nepal’s first model village of Ghandruk instead of Tikhedhunga Ghorepani route. The time spent on this village along with the cultural program will definitely spark the new sense of understanding Nepal’s rural setting. After this village trekkers will be camped at Chhomrong and Himalaya before heading to Annapurna Base Camp via Machhapuchhre Base Camp. Explore both of these base camps and feel the cool breeze of mountain air. The time spent on these magnificent places would be recorded for years to come as you can share with your upcoming generations and friends proudly.

The trip after Annapurna Base Camp would be through bamboo forests and natural hot water springs at Jhinu. Relax your muscles and get relieved of any skin diseases by dipping into the natural hot water. The exploration of the Lake City Pokhara is another added bonus during 8 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek journey.
