Annapurna Circuit

Annapurna Circuit

5
A great trek with fantastic mountain views and diverse and interesting scenery. The high altitude ascents were controlled really well and all of us got over the Thorong La pass without too much difficulty or suffering. Being a circular route everyday was different, I was struck by how quickly the vegetation and climate changed with the terrain, the villages were all very interesting and the people friendly and welcoming.

Overall an excellent trip. I've also done the Annapurna Sanctury and Everest Base Camp but this was the best by far. It was less focused on the mountains and gave more opportunities to get to know the people, culture and traditions of the country.

Exodus Response

We would like to thank Ian for his review; we were delighted to read that he had an excellent trip overall. Exodus provides suitable clothing and equipment for all porters, and whilst we do not supply tour leaders with clothes directly, they are paid a good wage to purchase their own gear. We were sorry to hear that Prem (Ian’s tour leader) had not taken his proper walking boots with him on this occasion and we have followed up on this.

Annapurna Circuit 12th April - 2nd May 2015

The Annapurna circuit is still a brilliant trek despite the presence of the new road/track, and we enjoyed a beilliant trek with a good group, 13 in total. the earthquake of 25th April caused some drama as we approached Larjung, with rockfall starting in several places in the Kali Gandaki valley.

Stuck in snow at Manang!

5
Blue skies clouding up a bit in the afternoon was what we expected. Instead, we unfortunately got severe winter weather with 48 hrs of continual snow leading to the closure of the Thorung La and trapping us along with a Russian party in waist deep snow in Manang! We had to retreat by cutting a path using ice axes and body force through the snow to Hunde (first leg), then again, a day later, to Pisang. This was pretty arduous and cold. It took us 10 hrs to cover the 4kms to Hunde arriving at dusk and eternally grateful for a full moon. Fortunately most of us had good winter treking gear with us. Many though suffered wet feet as conditions underfoot were severe -treated nubuck leather boots did well. Microspikes were good where the snow was compacted or iced. Hands got cold/wet - teaching me to use a layered glove system on a trek. We had to retrace our steps to Besishahar which was quite tedious except that we saw Manaslu from Timang and Annapurna 11 became fully visible. Manaslu had been obscured by rain cloud on the way up and we had had only brief glimpses of Annapurna 11. The new road/dam construction does impact on the attractiveness of the trail on this side. We then crossed to Birethanti by a bus arranged by Exodus from Besishahar and had a successful circular mini-trek in deliciously warm weather and good visibility to Poon Hill/Ghorepani and over via Tadapani to Ghandruk and back. The views from Poon Hill were outstanding. The lodge at Ghorepani is in a great location and many of the rhodedendron were in bloom - a beautiful sight.

A fantastic three weeks of amazing scenery, wonderful people and great insight into the local culture of Nepal. You've got to be up for a lot of walking - 18 days on the trot - but it is well paced and, challenges of altitude aside, not too difficult if you are reasonably fit and used to hillwalking.

Not having three weeks, I did the Mini Annapurna Circuit option. It was fabulous - still included the pass, the figurative and literal high point for most of us! Scenery changed every day, from green rice paddies to fiery autumnal colours and of course, snowy summits all around - I could never get bored of those views. Even our guides who'd done the trek so many times were still taking photos the whole way round like the rest of us!
