Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi All,

I am planning trekking to Nepal (again) in May 2021 (postpone from my initial plan in Dec 2020 due to Covid19).
I have completed my 1st trekking (Nepal) in Dec 2020 – winter to Everest Basecamp.

Furthermore, I really enjoy and love trekking in Himalaya region and want to explore more about Annapurna.
Actually I have not decided yet, whether I choose Annapurna Circuit (preferably) or Annapurna Basecamp this year. If I have trekking partner, then Annapurna Circuit (include Tilicho lake) will be very interesting for me.

I will start fly to Kathmandu from Jakarta (Indonesia) on Wed, Dec 16th and arrived in Kathmandu on Thu, Dec 17th.
We can set the meeting point at Airport or Thamel, Kathmandu. However I haven’t booked the flight and date still adjustable.

Here’s the summary of itinerary :
Day 1 International flight Jakarta to Bangkok (transit)
Day 2 International flight Bangkok to Kathmandu + Free time tourist activity and getting ACAP
Day 3 Land transportation Kathmandu to Besisahar (790 m)
Day 4 Trekking from Besisahar (790 m) or Nadi Bazaar to Chamje (1,430 m)
Day 5 Trekking from Chamje (1,430 m) to Dharapani (1,943 m)
Day 6 Trekking from Dharapani (1,943 m) to Chame (2,630 m)
Day 7 Trekking from Chame (2,630 m) to Upper Pisang (3,300 m)
Day 8 Trekking from Upper Pisang (3,300 m) to Manang (3,530 m)
Day 9 Acclimatization Day (Trekking to Gangapurna Lake & Praken Gompa (small monastery)
Day 10 Trekking from Manang (3,530 m) to Siri Kharka (4,060 m)
Day 11 Trekking from to Siri Kharka (4,060 m) to Tilicho BC (4,150 m) and continue to Tilicho Lake (4,920 m)
