Annapurna Circuit Trek or around the Annapurna trekking, famous for regular and phenomenal changes of scenery, is considered one of the best  and the most beautiful walks in the world. Apart from the scenery, this trekking gives trekkers a chance to enjoy majestic mountain views from the famous vantage points, diverse landscape, vegetation, trail, valleys, gorges, fascinating settlement of people, their lifestyle, religion, culture and tradition and the beauty offered by nature, all in one go. Normally, it requires 20 days to complete the round Annapurna trek. 

However, Short Annapurna Round Trek introduced by Amigo Treks and Expedition is a good news for all adventure trekkers, bound by time. It’s a mini version of the regular Annapurna Circuit trek that can be completed in 15 days. Starting with a bus ride to Bhulbhule, this trekking covering  most parts of the Annapurna Circuit trail, ends with a flight from Jomsom to Pokhara and then to Kathmandu. The major highlights of this trekking includes the most beautiful view of the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Pisang, Chulu and many other peaks in the Annapurna region of Nepal; Thorang La Pass, temple of Mukatinath, the green, terraced farmland of the Marsyangdi valley and the semi –arid environment of the Lower Mustang; Jomsom, Kaagbeni and the medieval villages.
