    I and my girlfriend I had a great trip to the Annapurna Region. We were looking for a quite, adventurous and religious atmosphere in our journey which we actually got from Annapurna Short Trek of 8 Days. The waterfalls, forest trails, snow-capped mountains and stunning views of diverse flora and fauna were miraculous. We enjoy our holy visit to the Muktinath Temple. My girlfriend believes a lot in those kinds of stuff. As I traveled to the temple, I myself felt I was entering a holy land and fell in love with the culture and practices going on around it. My travel company was the Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition. I found this to be the best trekking company in Nepal all because of the best team. I highly suggest this experienced organization for operating travels, tours, and treks around Nepal.

    I have gone through many destinations in Nepal including Everest, Manaslu, Kanchenjunga, and Annapurna. But this Annapurna Short Trek of 8 days was something else. With the beautiful mountain views of Annapurna, surrounding glaciers, rhododendron forests, and waterfalls were just making me fall in love with them. The trip to Muktinath temple is a must, as it takes you to the barren lands around Muktinath. The temple of Muktinath is amazing, those ponds and cold water, wow man! Seeing Buddhists and Hindus alike visiting this place made the atmosphere very exciting to observe. I travel around Nepal by connecting with the Nepal Trek Adventures. They’re wonderful for arranging any treks and sightseeing in Nepal. Great team!

    The Annapurna Short Trek is definitely a trek you must go for. I am new to trekking and didn’t have much experience. But the trek was easy for me to do. Looking at the beautiful views of Annapurna and surrounding mountain ranges was just incredible. Times, when we were driving to Jomsom along with the barren lands, it was a new experience for me. The trek is simple and can be done easily by any beginner. I chose NTA for my travel and it was the best decision. It is the only travel company in Nepal that currently provides so many fruitful package options for its travelers. The team was very cooperative and I loved the guide which was provided. I highly recommend the package and the NTA team.

    The Annapurna Short Trek is definitely one that is filled with natural beauty. I was traveling to Nepal and wanted to roam around the Annapurna. So I and my friend booked the trip with the Nepal Trek Adventures (NTA). The company is definitely one of the best out there in Nepal to make travel visits as enjoyable as possible. The guide cum porter provided for us was excellent and explained everything so well. We were amazed by his dedication and effort, and of course with the luggage carrying capacity that he had. The Mountain views of Annapurna, Manaslu, and more were breathtaking. We kept clicking pictures likes we hadn't seen a mountain before. Haha! The nature around Annapurna is definitely the one that you have to experience yourself at least once in a life. The forest trails and travel through the barren lands were greater than imagined. I loved the trip and the company!

    As I searched the internet, I always found circuit treks to Annapurna for longer days like 14 days, 17 days, and so on. Suddenly, after looking for a while I found this short trek to Annapurna which went the same way in only 8 Days! What’s more, Drives and flights were part of this 8 days' adventure. So, less walking and a comfortable trip! It was exactly the same for me. I contacted my travel agency, the Nepal Trek Adventures and confirmed my booking – all flights, drives, and everything needed. I had an amazing Everest trip before so I had gone back to them. The team is simply startling. As for the trek, it was fun. The short trek took me around the Annapurna region which would take a lot longer if I had gone with anything else. The quick visit to look at Annapurna and Manaslu, surround by rainforests trails was simply amazing. The waterfalls and suspension bridges, local villages and delicious food definitely made the trip worthwhile. You have to visit Muktinath temple that is genuinely gorgeous. The structure and style used to make the temple eye-catching.  The religious atmosphere added a charm to the trek which will always be a memory. I say, ‘go for it’! The short trek to Annapurna is the best you can get for saving time and money while enjoying the beautiful views of Annapurna and its circuiting route. Fabulously striking!

    I am a solo traveler and love to travel to different places in the world. I found about the Annapurna short trek while I was communicating with the NTA team for package options in Nepal. Have to say, the company definitely lives up to its name as the best in Nepal. My trip to Annapurna for a short 8 was booked quickly and the next thing I knew I was already trekking along the rainforest and around waterfalls. Throughout the short trek to Annapurna, I saw many snow-capped mountains like Annapurna, Manaslu, etc. Many suspension bridges, diverse flora, and fauna made the trip worthwhile. As a solo traveler, I didn’t have a day of uneasiness and loneliness on this lap of nature. The guide was very interacting and always tried to engage with conversation which was never boring.

    Hey! I would just like to thank the NTA team and the guide, Shiva for helping me along my trek to Annapurna for the whole 8 days. As for my experience, I had a hard time trekking. This was because I am relatively fat and am not used to walking much. However, since my friends decided to go, I headed for it as well. The guide was really helpful in my trip. While I was having a hard time, the guide was there to cheer me up and motivate me to reach the destination every day. The NTA is definitely worth the collaboration. The company is highly cooperative and tries to take care of their clients as much as possible. If I hadn’t booked the trip with NTA I don’t know if I would have completed the trek with my effort. Thank you for helping me out all the time. Especially, Shiva, you are damn good, brother! Highly recommend this company for a safe and fun trip to Nepal.

    I had a great time visiting Nepal. I was in Kathmandu for sightseeing and loved the capital's attractions and the whole country. I wanted to explore more of its nature, so I contacted Nepal Trek Adventures. Since I didn't have too long to stay in Nepal and wanted to visit Pokhara, the team suggested the Annapurna Short Trek. I added an extra day for the Pokhara night and spent my 9 days traveling around Annapurna. The scenes were beautiful and the track very easy to explore. The temple visit to Muktinath was filled with a religious atmosphere. I also loved the extra day I booked for Pokhara sightseeing and boating with other exploration. It was absolutely perfect. Highly recommended!

Size of Trekking Group

In Annapurna Short Trek, there will be a single leader (the guide) and a Sherpa porter (1 porter for 2 trekkers). This arrangement is done for the smooth operation of the package. It is made to ensure that the trip will carry on as per plan even if anybody in a group falls ill. NTA can operate this package for a group of any size. But, a group with 12 is considered to be the optimum size. However, if you have a group of more than 12, the Nepal Trek Adventures team can arrange it very easy for you.

Accommodations

During our trek, we will spend 7 nights at local tea houses and lodges. All accommodations on this trek will be on twin sharing basis. However, on request, single rooms for you can also be easily arranged and made available with an additional cost of USD 300. But some places in the Annapurna region do not allow single accommodations so be prepared beforehand.

Meals

During our Annapurna Short Trek, we will enjoy the basic Nepali food (Dal Bhat), different ethnic cuisines as well as all types of international cuisine like Tibetan, Continental, Italian, and Indian. You can enjoy hot coffee and bread. Breakfast of the day will be served at the same teahouse or lodge where we spent the night and as per its menu. Lunch will be served on the way to the destination of each day and dinner will be served at the tea house and lodges where you spend the night.

Getting Visa for Nepal

You will get a visa on arrival for Nepal. After arriving in Nepal, you will get a tourist visa for 5 to 15 months. It will depend on your purpose for the visit. But regarding the tour, you will get the visa for 15 to three months. For trekking, you need to submit a photocopy of your passport and two passport size photos per person for the trek.

Things to Carry for Annapurna Short Trek

While the Autumn and Spring seasons are best or trekking through Annapurna trails, the trekking packages can be operated in any season except monsoon which is not recommended. For different seasons you might need different things. For some, you might need to carry less and only useful items, while for others you might need something more.
