Annapurna Circuit (Besisahar – Jomson): Nov. 2013

My flight lands early in Kathmandu November 6th and I have time until the 28th to complete the Jomsom trek. I am planning to begin the trek from Besisahar around the 8th and it would great to share this adventure with some other trekkers. This is more or less the agenda:

Day 01: Basisaher to Bhahun Danda(760M)
Day 02: Trek to Bhahun Danda (1398M)
Day 03: Trek to Chamje (1410M)
Day 04: Trek to Bagarchhap (2080M)
Day 05: Trek to Chame (2720M)
Day 06: Trek to Pisang (3060M)
Day 07: Trek to Manang (3440M)
Day 08: Rest/Acclimatization in Manang
Day 09: Trek to Yak Kharka (4200M) – 4/5 hrs
Day 10: Trek to Throng Phedi (4450M) – 3/4 hrs
Day 11: Trek to Throng-La pass (5416M) and Trek down to Muktinath (3760M)
Day 12: Trek to Jomsom (2750M)
Day 13: Fly to Pokhara, Half day sightseeing of Attractions in Pokhara city

I have experience in the mountain and usually go hiking as much as I can. I can use a compass and read a topograhic map. Furthermore, I’ll bring my GPS device loaded with the map of the trek. I don’t discard hiring a local guide. It could be interesting and we could share this expenditure. I pretend to sleep on lodges. Any question and tips are welcome.

  1. Hi Albert, my name is Oleg, i’m from Russia, 40, and I’m arriving to KTM Nov 8th and there till 23th. Thinking of the same part of ABC plus may be Tilicho lake. Spoke with one local agency on the guide and some assistance to save time, awaiting reply and pricing for now to make a decision. Anyway i’m free to take any option, but prefer to have some company. If you like you can write me to otsts(at)

  2. Bon dia Albert! I will be in Nepal during the same period. Your trekking looks amazing but I’m not fit enough to join you. But if you ever feel like the need to speak to someone in Catalan or Spanish while you are in Kathmandu or Pokhara, we can meet for a drink or a chat. Happy travel!

  3. Hola Albert! Somos una pareja de amantes de la montaña. Pasé un año como estudiante en Canarias también. Porque creo que es más seguro que viajar un grupo de más de dos, por favor, piensa si quieres meternos en su grupo. Nosotros nos encargamos de la montaña, pero nos preocupamos por los rumores de inestabilidad e inseguridad en Nepal. ¿Y usted?

  4. Hi Albert,

    Are you still open to partners for this trek?

    I will arrive into Pokhara on Thursday, November 7, and plan on hiking as much of the Annapurna Circuit Trek as possible (my flight leaves from Kathmandu on November 25, so I will have to be back in Pokhara by the evening of November 23).

    Please let me know!
