Annapurna Circuit Trek
I’ve made a last minute decision to fly out to Nepal to do the Annapurna Circuit, and I’m looking for some trekking partners. This will be my second trip to Nepal – I had to cut my trek to ABC short, and I have been waiting for an opportunity to return to Nepal! I’m looking for some positive and easy-going people to share the experience with.
My plan is to take a bus (or taxi?) to Besisahar (or Bhubule) from Kathmandu, but I can just as easily fly to Pokhara. I’m flexible on the duration of the trip – I’m thinking about 17 days based on guide books and advice from friends. I plan to take some rest days along the way to take in the sights, and to do a couple of the side trips (e.g., Lake Tilicho). Depending on progress, I’d like to finish at Nayapul (and visit the springs at Tatopani on the way). If things go VERY smoothly, I may take some extra time to have another go at ABC from Poon Hill!
I spent the last 12 months behind my desk working on my PhD thesis, and so I am really ready for an adventure! I’m English but I’ve lived in the Netherlands for the past few years. I really enjoy being in the mountains – hiking, bouldering and climbing, cycling, and skiing. I’m a geologist, and I specialised in studying the processes that form mountains, which has taken me to some epic places across Europe and the US. I’ll bring a decent camera to capture some of the scenery 😛Reply
