Annapurna Circuit Trek

Planning the Annapurna Circuit in December/January independently and with a couple of side trips. The idea is to take the bus + jeep on the 21st all the way to Chame. I have about 17 days available and I’d like to do quite some side trips such as Tchiko Lake.

I have experience from having done the 3 passes, trekked Langtang plus other multiweek trekking tours in other places. It is important that you have trekking experience as well besides winter gear, as it is quite cold during December/January.

Ive put a random value for the budget. You can search in the web for the exact average budget of the meals and guesthouses.

  1. Hi Thomas

    I’m planning on doing the AC a week after you on 28th (tickets already booked). Also planning to take transport up the road from Besi Sahar but perhaps not so far as Chame. Hoping to visit lake tilicho or cross Thorung La on 3rd or 4th. Also have trekking experience. Message me if you’d like to see my itinerary. Maybe will see you on the trek!

  2. Hello Thomas,
    I’ m also planning to do the AC on december/january ! I will be arriving to Katmandou on the 20th december and I was thinking to hit the road to Besi Sahar on the 22th or 23rd december. I will be staying for 3 weeks as well. Telle me if you’re interested in trekking together it could be really nice.
