    4.0 - Good

    The trek was great. We had a wonderful time. Our guide and porter were both really good. Going during an off season was nice, as we don't like crowded trails. The only negative was our teahouse stay at Tadapani, which was not pleasant. The host was not nice and the food was not good. The vibe at the teahouse was not good. We will not recommend the Tadapani teahouse. Maybe we were spoiled from the first two nights...

    Amazing views and cultural experience. Kind and caring guides. Challenging treks. Our final full day of trekking was affected by the early monsoon season. We hiked for many hours in heavy rain and learned the art of extracting leeches. While not entirely pleasant, this most challenging day left us feeling accomplished. Very grateful to the guides and porters.

    The trek was excellent - tougher than expected, but spectacular and invigorating. The Tour guide was knowledgeable, encouraging, professional and very good company.

    3.5 - Good

    Enjoyed the trip apart from the wet day 4 (supposed to be the day with the best views) with leeches in the forest! Challenging treks for 50+year olds, but do-able. A relatively inexpensive trek that becomes quite expensive when meals at 25USD per person per day are added, along with the obligatory tips for guides and porters.

    5.0 - Excellent

    'Walking Annapurna' was everything I hoped it would be - and more. The scenery was absolutely stunning, the homestays comfortable and welcoming (although very basic) and the company was great too! Be prepared to do some serious walking - your fitness levels will dictate how much you enjoy/get out of this short trek. Super rewarding though - I had an absolute ball. Highly recommended!

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • March 1, 2017

      We are under the impression we provide our own water purification for the trip, either tables or our small water purification filter system, is this correct?

      While trekking, boiled or safe water is available for drinking. However, you should also carry a water purification method. Options include:
      - purification tablets available from camping stores or pharmacies eg. Micropur.
      - 2% tincture of iodine, available from pharmacies, used at 4 drops per litre of water and left for at least 20 minutes - longer in very cold weather.

    • March 1, 2017

      What time should I arrive for the tour?

      The tour operator suggested getting there a day early for the group meeting at their office in Pkhara, all of the joining information is listed in the trip notes.

    • August 5, 2016

      When is monsoon season in Nepal? Can you still take this tour during this time?

      Between June and August, it is monsoon season in Nepal. Yes you can travel at this time. Should you choose to travel during this time, please note that you will encounter wet conditions, obscured views, and an extra leech or two. During the monsoon, there is a chance that our itinerary may be adjusted pending water levels in rivers. Don't forget to carry rain proof jackets and trouser or raincoat.
