We have designed this trek focusing on the people who want to accomplish hiking to Annapurna base camp in a shorter time and also for those who have already done the Ghorepani – Poonhill trek previously.
We will visit the historic village of this region, Ghandruk, and the famous hot springs in Jhinu. Jhinu hot springs will massage your body after long Annapurna Base Camp trekking days on the way back from this hike.
The trek follows a shortcut route to the Annapurna base camp from the middle of Poonhill and Pokhara. Our drive from Pokhara all the way to the scenic and historic village of Gurkhas Ghandruk will shorten and ease the hiking part.
On the first day we will walk moderate uphill and all downhill, which is good for adjusting your body for trekking. Even though the hiking route is shorter, you will still see a lot of Nepalese culture and tradition and the life of the local people as we pass by the villages.
During this trek you will see basically all the same things as during the longer classic Annapurna base camp trekking, apart from the Dhaulagiri mountain range, as we skip Poonhill on this short-cut option.
