Annapurna – Nar, Phu, Meskokante la Tilicho
Trekking buddy wanted – Annapurna region – Nar, Phu, Tilicho lake via Mesokante la to Jomsom
i am looking for a like-minded trekking partner in the Annapurna Region. After intensive research and talking to people who have been there, i set up a route what avoids most of main circuit and follows wonderfull side valleys and a passes that are more intresting to explore than the main circuit. As i do not want to spend too much money on a full guided and booked and organized trip i tried to organize it myself and just hire a guide or porter where needed. I will arrive in Kathmandu solo on 29th april. Why together? Easily because it´s more fun, safer, and cheaper.
I Felix, 28 years, from Austria and spent the last 9 years living in Munich to work and start studying business what ended in a degree in geology (GER). Before i am going to start a new job i am two months free and decided to make a travel a bit farther away than last years to explore himalayan culuture and landscape. It is my first time in Nepal, also first time trekking. I am used to make alpine tours in the austrian alps and have some mountaineering experience. My hobbies are rock climbing, playing music, skiing, beachvolleyball and good food and am always happy to try out new stuff and explore;) i like the idea of hiking more indepently and visit places by my / our own, but of course i am open to book a guide if needed and also support local people. Seeking for adventure, but also on a safe side;)
The idea of the tour:
Start: close to Beshisara; Visit: Phu and Nar (need a special permit and a guide to go there) – via Manag and Tilicho lake taking the Meskonate La Pass to come to Jomsom, where i would end the route, taking a ride to Pokhara. As far as i know now, we can spend all nights in a lodge, except two to three nights walking the mesokante la; there we should be self sufficient and carry our own tent and food. https://www.trekking-in-nepal.net/de/nepal/trip-223-nar-phu-valley-trek-traverse-tilicho-lake -> this is more or less the route i intend to hike together;)
If there is time left and before returing to Kathmandu I would add peak Mardi Himal – no special permits required and spleeping spots at base camp possible, 5500 hm. This one is optional and can be done solo also.
You can share to friends if you want. I am open to do it with a group of friends for sure;)
Looking forward to hear you,
