Some trekkers who have limits of time but want to cross the beautiful Thorongla pass are the best option. So that Asian Hiking Team recommends 7 days short trekking to cross Thorong La pass.

Asian Hiking Team designs the shortest itinerary for the Annapurna circuit trek. The trek starts from Chame above 2670 m from sea level and ends in Jomsom 2700 m. We drive from Kathmandu to Besisahar by tourist bus and continue to Chame by Jeep. From Besisahar to Chame the road is narrow and possible to drive by Jeep only.
