Here’s an idea of the planned itineraries for both my treks; it’s give or take a day.

**Annapurna Circuit( approx 300km/187m): Start date April 19:
I would like to do this in a day less (mainly to have an extra rest day between treks!), so this itineray could change quite a bit, but then again I may stick to just this.

  • Day1: Pokhara – Besishar (by bus) / Besisahar – Bhulbule
  • Day2: Bhulbule – Jagat
  • Day3: Jagat – Tal
  • Day4: Tal – Chame
  • Day5: Chame – Pisang
  • Day6: Pisang – Ghyaru – Braga (high trail)
  • Day7: Ice Lake sidetrip – Manang
  • Day8: Manang – Yak Kharka
  • Day9: Yak Kharka – Thorung Pedi
  • Day10: Thorung Pedi – Muktinath (Thorung-la pass 5,415meters/17,769feet)
  • Day11: Muktinath – Jharkot
  • Day12: Jharkot – Marpha
  • Day13: Marpha – Kalopani
  • Day14: Kalopani – Ghasa
  • Day15: Ghasa -Tatopani
  • Day16: Tatopani – Shika
  • Day17: Shika – Ghorepani
  • Day18: Ghorepani – Tikhedunga
  • Day19: Tikhedhunga – Nayapul (transport back to Pokhara).

**Everest Basecamp Trek (approx 110km/70m): Start date May 9 or 10.

  • Day1: Fly to Lukla / Lukla – Phakding
  • Day2: Phakding – Namche Bazar
  • Day3: rest day for acclimatization (if needed)
  • Day4: Namche – Tengboche
  • Day5: Tengboche – Pheriche
  • Day6: Pheriche – Dughla
  • Day7: Dughla – Lobuche
  • Day8: Lobuche – EBC (5,360meters/17,600feet)

I then stay in the Alpine Ascents camp; wait for the Climbers to do their thing and then hike out with the Expedition team.
