Green Valley Nepal Treks designed 10 days (Arrival to departure) short Annapurna Base Camp Trek for those having limited days and still want to reach the wonderful Annapurna Base camp.

Short Annapurna base Camp trek is a moderate trek suitable for almost everyone as the trail is comparatively easy and appealing. Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek starts from Pokhara, the natural capital of Nepal. Pokhara is known as Lake City with an amphitheater of mountains. Annapurna range makes its northern wall. This is a base for several treks in the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. We drive 44 km / 1.5 hrs to the trekking trail head at 1,100 m from Pokhara and start our trek to Ghorepani first. Ghorepani or its top Pun Hill (3,200 m) offers view of about 15 snow peaks including Dhaulagiri I (8,167m / 7th highest), Annapurna I (8,091m / 10th highest) and Manaslu (8,156m / 8th highest). This is the good start of the trek. Then we will walk through the rhododendron forest to Chhomrong village across the Annapurna South. From here one can enjoy the heights of Annapurna South and Fishtail. The trail further enters into the narrow valley wedged between Annapuran south and Fishtail. At Fishtail base camp (3,700 m), we come to meadows and glacial moraine with relatively bright and wide valley. Annapurna base camp (4,200 m) has snow peaks at 360 degree.
