Annapurna Circuit Trek
Quick bit about me: my name is Kailey, I’m 25 and from Canada. I love hiking, camping, cycling, adventuring, traveling! In the few countries I’ve been lucky enough to visit, Nepal has been my #1. This will be my second visit. I have also done a small trek in Peru that reached a pretty modest 4000M.
I land in KTM early November and will be looking to do either the Annapurna Circuit. I hope to start trekking around the 6th or 7th from Kathmandu. Does anyone here have any experience with get to Besisahar from KTM?
As I am relatively short on time, I’m thinking Tillicho Lake and Poon Hill may be my opportunities for side trips during the trek. I am, however, totally open to other side trips (just need to be mindful of my time, etc).
This will be my second trip to Nepal and I’m so ready to return. I’m feeling well prepared this time around. I am in good health, good fitness, plan to carry my own pack (however, absolutely no qualms if you’re looking to hire a porter- creating jobs is a beautiful thing) and am not looking to rush. I like to take my time to both look around and stay safe. However, I don’t intend to drag my feet either. I’m sure the group will fall into a pace.
I am on the fence regarding hiring a guide. On one hand, the guides I met on my first trip to Nepal were absolutely incredible. I didn’t have one but the men I met along the way added an incredible dynamic to the party. On the other hand, I am confident that this can be done independantly and I would like to stay mindful of my budget (shoestring).
If anyone wants to chat more, just reply or shoot me a private message!
BTW, I met my last trekking partner on this site… worked out great!
Cheers from Canada 🙂Reply
