I’m looking for people who would like to complete the Annapurna circuit this October over the course of 10 days. I’ll land in Kathmandu on October 4th and would like to leave October 6th ideally. I’ll end in Pokhara and hang there for a few days.
From what I’ve gathered from other trekking websites – it could look something like this
Day 1: drive Kathmandu to Beshisahar (drive 6 hrs)
Day 2: drive Beshisahar to Chame (5 hrs)
Day 3: Trek Chame to Pisang (5/6 hrs)
Day 4: trek pisang to manang (5/6 hrs)
Day 5: acclimation day in Manang
Day 6: trek manang to ledar (5/6 hrs)
Day 7: trek ledar to highcamp (5/6 hrs)
Day 8: trek highcamp to muktinath via throung-la (8 hrs)
Day 9: trek muktinath to Jokshom (6 hrs)
Day 10: jokshom to pokhara (drive or fly)
I’m very back and forth on whether a guide is necessary or if self-trek is the way to go. I’ve heard it’s a fairly easy path to follow but have heard at times, difficult to find tea houses without a guide in high season. very flexible and open to input!
