Annapurna Circuit Trek
I will attempt to complete the Annapurna Circuit including Lake Tilicho and Poon Hill in 16days. I will arrive in KTM on 13th and will depart from there on 29th and hence have 16days for the circuit. This will make it relatively fast paced. I have done a few 4k+ and a couple of 5k+ treks in Indian Himalayas but none of them so long and the 5k+ were some time back. So I will be quite novice for this trek.
About me: I am coming to visit nature as most of my days are spent in the city life which is full of toxic air, tension and anxiety. I am a banker and travel only a few times a year (on my own discretion). So wherever I go i try to have as much fun as possible. I travel light and am not very demanding. So i will be very flexible till the 16days constraint is taken care of. Mumbai is where I live (which means i will start from sea level 0, imagine my acclimatisation) and i am well versed in Hindi and English along with Bengali.
I am looking for trekking partners who are looking to join me for the entire stretch/any part of it. even sharing a jeep/bus ride from KTM to Ghermu counts.
