Nepal Trip: Annapurna Circuit/Tea house Trek

  • November 17 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi everyone,

Aaron wanted to gauge interest on this trip. Trekking the Himalayas in Nepal can sound intimidating. Many think that it is an experience accessible only to seasoned climbers or those who can afford to use expensive trekking companies; however, with enough research and planning, you can absolutely trek in the Himalayas independently – and on a budget.

One way to do so is to take advantage of Nepal’s teahouse treks. These are cheaper excursions where trekkers are provided with meals and overnight accomodation in local “teahouses”. One of the more well-known is the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek – a ten-day journey launched from Kathmandu with the Thorung La Pass at 5,416 meters as one of its highlights.

For those interested please add yourself and we can setup a happy hour etc so you can learn more about trekking in Nepal and what exactly would be involved with the trip.

Some Questions you may have:
- How long will it take? Minimum 10 days trekking.
- What will the accommodations be like in a tea house? Adventurous!! No 5 star hotels but plenty of experiences to make any adventurer jealous. The best part are of course the views!
-Approximately how much will it cost? When trekking you should expect to spend about $30 per day so it is very affordable. It can be done cheaper and much more expensively.
- What type of gear do I need? Basically a good backpack, some hiking boots, and no cotton clothing.
- Will there be snow? Possibly yes in some places but Oct-Nov is the high season for trekking so there should be little snow (weather is unpredictable of course).
- Is it safe? Totally safe, hundreds of thousands of people have done the Annapurna circuit and loved every minute. As with everything, there are always some risks involved but safety is paramount when on any trail. Any other questions feel free to ask.

    This sounds so cool, what would the cost look like for everything you think?

      1500-2000. Probably closer to the 1500 range because Nepal is very inexpensive.
