This is day 6 of my Annapurna Circuit Trek and I am in Manang at about 3500m. Tomorrow will make a day hike to ‘Ice Lake’ at 4160m and then come back to Manang again. I have a lovely room with a view and private bath and shower – just about 5-star as far as Tea-Houses go! the hike today was only 4 hours so there was time to do laundry and just about get it dry in the sun today. The views are simply amazing!
The hikes so far:
- Day 1: Pokhara-Besisahar by bus, then hike to Nadi.
- Day 2: Nadi to Jagat
- Day 3: Jagat to Tal
- Day 4: Tal to Chame (that was a long one)
- Day 5: Chame to Lower Pisang (easy 4 hour hike)
- Day 6: Pisang to Manang (we decided on the low trail which made it again an easy 4 hour hike).
The weather has been great. We plan to cross the Thorung-La pass on the 28th and I won’t have email access till at least a few days after that. Till now the altitude wasn’t a factor yet, but that will change as of tomorrow.
Greetings from Manang, caroline.
