We are planning to do the Annapurna Circuit leaving no later than 8th October, now looking like 7th Oct. and taking 16 days to complete the route.
We are planning a side trip to Lake Tilicho from Manang.
Day 1 we will try to get to Chame in one day from Kathmandu.
We will have 1 day acclimatisation in Manang.
From Manang we will do the 2 night / 3 day side trip to Lake Tilicho
Then we will resume the Annapurna Circuit going over Thorung La Pass.
The trip will end in Pokhara.
We will hire a guide / porter (one person who combines the roles). The porter will carry my kit (the other two are carrying their own) and he will guide and advise on the route. The cost is $18 per day which will be split between us, but of course I will pay more as he is carrying my load! Of course if you want a porter then it is easy to arrange through the porter / guide contact I have.
Tea house accommodation and food will be found enroute and will be paid for as we go.
I will be travelling through SE Asia prior to the trip so will respond as soon as possible to any inquiries but it may take a few days more.
The other two in the group are Zima (24), currently studying / working abroad and from Kathmandu and then Jan (24), who is from Germany and is currently working / studying in Madrid. A great combination!
If you are interested please get in touch as soon as possible so we can discuss your plans and firm up the details.Reply
