Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek
The Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek is designed for those who have limited time for trekking but want to do the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. After the motor road connecting Nayapul/Birethanti to Simrung near Jhinu Danda, it became possible to make the Annapurna Base Camp trek within 7 days except for the Kathmandu part. But if you want to make it less than 7 days you need to use a flight between Kathmandu and Pokhara. Including the Kathmandu part, at least 10 days are required including arrival, departure, and a one-day sightseeing tour in Kathmandu city. The short ABC (Annapurna Base Camp) trek leads directly to Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) without visiting the famous viewpoint Ghorepani Pool Hill (3210 m).
The Short Annapurna Base Camp trek starts from Simrung and ends at Simrung. There is an off-road drive from Nayapul to Simrung village but from Pokhara to Nayapul on Blacktop Road. Of course, drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara on Blacktop Road, but it's also possible if you prefer to use flight.
