A shorter version of the most diverse trek in the world

This shorter Annapurna Circuit Trek compacts the thrills of the circuit trek into a manageable 12 days for visitors who are short on time.

Known as one of the most diverse and scenic treks globally, Annapurna’s complete circuit is an estimated 300 km. The short circuit follows the same route until Jomsom, where the original circuit continues onto Ghorepani and Pokhara.

The trek begins in the subtropical forests of Besi Sahar (750 m), continuing onto Bagarchhap, Chyamje, Chame, and Pisang, before entering the arid plateaus of Manang, an ex-kingdom once restricted to the outside world. The trek then continues onto Yak Kharka and ThorungPhedi for a summit of the treacherous Thorung La Pass (5415 m), the most significant pass in the world. The circuit winds down at Jomsom via Muktinath. A couple of rest days at the Lakeside city of Pokhara follows.
