They are small, cheap, and light to carry, another better way is to get water filters they are low to carry and easy to use. You can bring two reusable water bottles. So that you always have one bottle to drink from, while the water in your other bottle is being purified.

 Average Group Size

So, what size groups would you join if you went on the Annapurna base camp short trek? We do keep our groups quite small, with the exception of the Himalayan trek. Unless it’s a really large private group on your own. As you are aware, our trekking groups typically consist of six to eight people. From our perspective, this keeps things more private.

There have been some really large groups on the Annapurna base camp short trek, but they only have one guide. However, we believe that a smaller group is more personal, and you get to know your guides better since they are wonderful people. More personal interactions occur in smaller groups. And what we discover is that reaching the Annapurna base camp requires teamwork, and getting it is difficult.

It’s wonderful to have a team to assist you in getting back up on your bad days when you’re feeling a little off and, you know, getting a little down in the house. The closer your team is, the more likely you are to reach the Annapurna base camp.

However, since it is your journey, you are free to select the people you go with. You may go on a trek with your friends, coworkers, or family and have a great time.

Travel Insurance

While we have an excellent program for trekking to the Annapurna base camp short trail, and your guides have years of expertise in bringing people in and out safely, it’s always necessary for us to have evacuation procedures. We want to make sure that our guest is comfortable on the journey. If they become ill or are unable to continue the journey, it is necessary that they be safely taken to a lower altitude or back to Kathmandu, or they can continue traveling if they choose.

Therefore, before beginning the walk, we suggest that you get trustworthy travel insurance. An insurance coverage called travel insurance can support you if you are evacuated.

On the Annapurna base camp short trek, there might be a risk of getting injured due to a twisted ankle, a high altitude issue, or even the fact that your body is not adjusting to the altitude well. We take every precaution and go forward safely with a very high success rate, but we want to ensure that if we do, people are evacuated as soon as possible. Your travel insurance will cover the expenses associated with the accident that occurred during the trek and will also arrange for a helicopter rescue.

Chhomrong is a gateway to the Annapurna Sanctuary trek and is inhabited by Gurung, one of the major ethnic groups of Nepal.

Leaving Chhomrong, the trail descends via a stone staircase and crosses the Chhomrong Khola on a swaying Suspension bridge. Then climb out of the side valley, passing through deep forests of bamboo, rhododendron, and oak. The portion of the day’s trek follows another ascent to Kuldi (2470m). Descend a long, steep, slippery stone staircase into a deep bamboo and rhododendron forest to the village of Dovan.

A trek of the narrow Modi Khola valley brings you almost to the base of M.B.C. There’s technically no such thing as ‘Machhapuchhare Base Camp. Since ascents of the mountains are prohibited. The mountain views are breathtaking; the panorama includes Hiuchhuli, Annapurna ranges, and the ever-changing Machhapuchhare.

This area is called the Annapurna sanctuary since mountains surround it. A vast amphitheater is enclosed by a solid wall of snow-capped peaks, which include Annapurna I, Annapurna III, and the fishtail spire of Machhapuchhare.

The climb to Annapurna Base Camp takes under two hours. You descend a small ridge branching out from the mountain pass to the mountainside with broad terraced fields showcasing tranquil meadows and lush, fertile farming land.

As you reach Annapurna South Base Camp, witness impressive picturesque landscapes, majestic panoramic views of snow-capped mountainous peaks, and varied Himalayan cultural settings tucked beneath the southern slopes of the Annapurna massive. The tremendous Annapurna Range stops your heartbeat for a while; a whole day without rest chill out around to explore ABC.

Heading back down the valley is much more comfortable. We will have a fantastic glimpse of sunrise over Mt. Annapurna and surrounding ranges.

Even if you do explore in the morning, you will have no problem reaching Bamboo passing through the Himalayan Hotel and Dovan. You trek gently ascend through bamboo forests with varieties of rhododendron and oak trees. Keep an eye out for troops of black-faced ‘Langur’ monkeys. At night you will find yourself in a guest house.

Retrace our steps back down to apple pie country. The trail goes steeply up to the Kuldi Ghar, and now the trail is quite flat until you reach Sinuwa. Your trek gradually descends to the Chhomrong Khola, and you have to follow the stone staircase for almost an hour to reach Chhomrong.

The trail continues through rhododendron and bamboo forest with majestic mountain scenery, especially Mt. Machhapuchhare. An hour’s walk will take you to Jhinu Danda. You enjoy the natural hot spring and explore the area around you.

Today is our last walking day in the mountain, on our way to Nayapul the trip leads downhill with stone steps through farm terraces passing another Nayapul (New Bridge) small settlement by the River Modi, walk leads further downhill to Syauli-Bazaar. From here follow the Modi River downstream to Birethanti and our trek end at Nayapul, drive back to Pokhara, and transfers to the hotel.

What food do you get along the way, Can I be Vegetarian, Can I get Gluttle free food?

You can eat vegetarian meals during your ABC short trek and meat is discouraged in the high altitude trek like EBC. As you ascended higher from Namche Bazaar killing aminals is banned. So all the meat items are carried down with poor refrigeration. So it is not good hygiene and we don’t recommend eating. You can use the local vegetarian food which is provided by tea houses.

The Nepali food Dal Bhat gives you enough carbohydrates and protein content in your body. Variety of lentils, beans, and pulses soup supplies enough protein to your body.  The guest house will also serve seasonal vegetables which supply other essential nutrients required for your body.

You can have other choices of food from the menu also, like Momo ( Dumplings) locally grown Barley, Buckwheat, Millet, and Corn Rotis (Bread)  if you give them a chance.  Buckwheat, Millet, and barley are high in fiber and very nutritious. You can have other varieties of food also with simple cooking like Noodles, Spaghetti, Macaroni, Pizza, Lasagne, Different curry, and fried rice.

You must eat the right food in the right amount. While trekking to ABC you must avoid hard drinks, as they increase your heartbeat which also may result in a heart attack. You should eat more energy-giving light food. Dal Bhat and Tarkari are very famous in the trekking region.
