Annapurna Trek Draws Tourists in Droves

The Short Annapurna Trek is one of the best short trekking packages in Nepal. It presents you the chance to experience the gorgeous Annapurna Mountain Peaks in a short amount of time, perfect for trekkers who have less time to spend in the country but want to enjoy the peaks. It is a beautiful amalgamation of the best facets of the region and presents you with ample highlights and hallmarks of the gorgeous peaks as well as the region’s natural and cultural attributes.

The trek starts with a drive to Pokhara, one of the best tourist places in Nepal. The city is the second-largest city in the country and is also one of the Annapurna region’s major commercial hubs. Situated beside Phewa Lake, the city is a beautiful destination to relax and just enjoy the mountain peaks. Likewise, from Pokhara, you will then trek towards many of the region’s ethnic Rai, Magar, and Gurung settlements, like Ghandruk, Deurali, and the village of Bamboo. The trekking trail passes through many alpine kinds of wood and pastures, decorated with amazing Himalayan tapestries that serrate against the skyline.

Similarly, you will also trek to Jhinu Dada, a natural hot spring that is said to have healing properties. You can have a relaxing dip in the hot spring and wash away your aching muscles or just soothe yourself in the balmy waters of the hot spring, snugly located amidst tall moss-covered cliffs. The trek is also culturally very lively. At each of the ways, you will come across Mani stones carved with prayers, Gumbas, and chortens laden with prayer flags that flutter majestically against the winds. Views of peaks like the Annapurna range, the Gangapurna Himal, the Machhapuchhre Himal, and the Dhaulagiri Range all ornament the distant horizons throughout the journey.

It is one of the best short treks in Nepal. As such, at every step of the way, you will be in the company of our trusted guide who will make sure that you are safe and comfortable. You will be provided with the best services regarding accommodation, meals, guidance, and transportation. It truly is an unforgettable trip!
