Kathmandu to Pokhara/Annapurna Base Camp
Hello fellow trekkers,
I am visiting Nepal for the first time, a life-long dream finally come true! I’m pretty new to the trekking community, though I am well-versed and conditioned to hiking and multi-day excursions in elevation and wilderness (I’ve been a wilderness trail worker for eight years).
I’m landing in Kathmandu on the 3rd of January and will spend 3-4 days getting last minute gear, looking around, eating food, and meeting folks.
From Kathmandu, on January 6th or so, I want to hike to Pokhara through the foothills. It’d be great to volunteer somewhere during this time, too, but I have no leads there. Depending on how long it will take to get to Pokhara will determine if volunteering is even a possibility. Hope to arrive around the 14th.
I wan to depart Pokhara for Annapurna Base Camp no later than January 16th.
The Annapurna Base Camp trek will start possibly two days after I arrive in Pokhara, looking at the 16th. I aim to make it back to Pokhara by January 30, give or take one day.
I am flexible with most of these dates after I land except for the end date, January 30th. Also, feel free to join for any part of this trip! Come and go as you wish, but it’d be great to have a partner for the duration of the Annapurna portion of this plan.
Hope everyone has a lovely New Years celebration and see you in 2017!
