Pokhara Valley View from Sarangkot

Pokhara, the second biggest city in Nepal is the starting point of most of the treks in the Annapurna Region. Easy hiking trails to hillside villages that lie only a couple of miles from the city, offer excellent views of the Annapurna Range and Dhaulagiri.

Annapurna Region is a place of exceptional natural beauty and rich culture. Its appeal to trekkers is immense and there’s a variety on offer for all levels of trekkers who take to the trail of this magnificent region. The short treks from Pokhara make for a great escape from the chaos of city life. The gentle and easy walking trails are ideal for families trekking with kids and people on a short holiday. Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek, one of the shortest, easiest, and most popular trek in Nepal that starts from Pokhara takes only four days to complete.

Some of the popular routes for short treks from Pokhara lead to the traditional Gurung villages of Ghandruk, Dhampus, Landruk, and Sikles. The viewpoints of Poon Hill, Muldai, and Panchase Danda are also popular destinations. Set under the backdrop of sparkling white Himalayan peaks, these charming villages lie amid lush green terraced fields and rhododendron forests.

The route followed by Prince Charles and his entourage during the early eighties is now famous as the Royal Trek route. This short and sweet trek passes through Nepal’s largest rhododendron forest and ancestral villages of the Gurkha soldiers in the British Army. The Naudanda – Sarangkot and the Australian Camp hiking trails are also frequently used by people out on a short Himalayan trek.

To enjoy a varied experience, one can combine these short treks with a cultural tour or a longer trek. For some of the best short Himalayan treks in the Annapurna Region, check the list of itineraries given below.
