Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi there,
I’m Thomas from Germany/Switzerland. After a stunning Nepal trekking in spring last year, I will spend a little more time in this beautiful country soon. Besides an expedition to Mera Peak, I would like to do two trekking tours during my stay:

1) KTM -> Langtang Valley -> maybe Gosainkund -> maybe Helambu -> KTM. Timeframe March 30th – April 16th

2) KTM -> Annapurna Circuit (maybe incl. Tilico Lake) -> Poon Hill -> maybe ABC -> Pokhara -> KTM. Timeframe May 10th – June 9th

I am flexible regarding timing within in the above mentioned timeframes, but very flexible regarding all other details. I am looking forward to responses from people in a good temper, who are eager to explore either Langtang Valley or the Annapurna region.

Cheers, Thomas

PS.: No, I’m sorry, but my dog Felix will not join us.
