Annapurna Base Camp Trek
I am arriving in Pokhara on the 28th November and looking to do the ABC trek, back through Poon hill and finish in Tatopani for a couple of days a the hot springs before the grueling 8hr road trip back to Pokhara / or 3 day walk back via Poon hill.
I am a well traveled Aussie guy in my late 30’s, reasonably quiet and reserved (unusual for an Aussie), but also likes a drink and a laugh (typical Aussie). Although I am used to hiking/trekking solo, have decided that I am going to need a porter this time and am looking to find someone/people to share the burden/costs with.
I am very easy going and flexible and believe that it is extremely important to take the trek as it comes. Meaning no real set schedule and hike at a rate that the group is comfortable with.
I personally don’t think we need a guide as well, maybe porter/guide but I am easy any which way. Sharing a porter with one other person + accommodation + food + 1 beer per day should cost around US$30 per day for 10-14 days. Total expected cost $300-$400. + permit costs ($40)
If anyone is interested in catching up in Pokhara for a drink and a chat, PM me and I will give you my Nepal phone number. If you have recently completed the ABC, I am intrestred to hear how the track is currently, or if you are interested in hearing about my experiences on the Annapurna Circuit (2010), Three Passes (2010) or EBC (2008) let me know.
My only real parameters are to be back in KTM by the 21st Dec. Or back into India on the 23rd. (I am having trouble extending my visa at the moment due to the SAARC Convention in KTM).
PLEASE no tour companies or trekking guide solicitationReply
