Annapurna Circuit Trek

Haven’t done long hikes like this before but am super excited. Would be nice to have someone to chat with during the bus trips, etc and I’m a big fan of photography as well!
Current plan (allowing for multiple days of aclimitisation) is:
16th Feb early morning (6-7am?) kathmandu bus to besisahar. Jeep to syange or ghermu. Maybe jagat
17th Feb syange/ghermu – jagat – chyamch – tal
18th Feb tal – dharapani – timang
19th Feb timang – Bhratang – upper pisang. Earlier stop off at dhikur pokhari possible
20th Feb upper pisang – bharaka (can stop here) – manang (shorter route on road or hard route possible)
21st Feb acclimitisation day in manang
22nd Feb manang – yak kharka
23rd Feb jak kharka – thorung phedi
24th Feb thorung phedi – high camp, 1km hike and ~500 m ascent so acclimitisation at high camp
25th Feb high camp – muktinath. Sunrise view at high camp. Crampons worthwhile here
26th Feb muktinath – lubra – jomson
27th Feb jomson – pokhara by jeep
