Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi, my name is Alessandro and I’m Italian. I’m 36, and I am a professional photographer based in in Australia.

I do surf, kayak, freediving, hiking and trekking.

I would like do the Annapurna Circuit track and my idea is spend between 13 to 15 days.

I’d like leave Ktm on 13th of March because there is Holy (a famous color festival) in dubar square on the Sunday 12th and I reckon is interestint to see it.

Someone raccomand me to skip the first part of the trek because is boring and start from Chamje and rather spend an extra days on high level for example Manang to help yourself acclimatise for pass the highest Thoroung La.

Because I am “solo” I asked a few quote to do with the guide. An agency came out with this interesting plan, for Rp 3665 include guide, trekking permits and all transportation, outside food and accomodation.
It start from Ktm to Besi Sahar, a jeep from Besi to Chamje. From there start trekking and finish to Poon Hill where a private car can take me to Pokhara.

It is a good plan, but I was thinking I’d rather find a partner and do it by myself, or even tough find someone can share the expenses.

At the moment I stay in Pece N Park accomodation in Thamel.
Maybe we can meet for a cup of coffee and discuss the plans.

I hope to hear from you.

Unfortunately I don’t have facebbok but i have instagram or email if you want to keep in tuch.
