Hi there. I''m booked on this trip and it would be good to get in touch with fellow travellers.
Just to let you know that you will not be walking alone.
This is my second trip to Nepal and I am loking forward to it more than my first trip, which was very very good.
Good to hear from you. I too am looking forward to this trip and busily getting myself into shape. I've been though the trip notes and have most of the kit recommended but do you have any hot tips on what is a must to take.
Thanks and regards,
Having read through the trip notes the only additions I shall be taking will be some energy bars/sweets and possibly a pair of bed socks, the nights can be very cold.
I have just returned from a week walking in th Western Dolomites,where I met Sue who has previously walked the Annapuna Circuit,which she say's is her most favourite walk ever,I have a link to her bolg about the walk if I find enything usful to take I shall let you know.
All the best
We were in Nepal briefly last summer and found the kids to be wonderful. We'll be on the October 15
Annapurna Circuit hike this fall. Two good reads about the area are "The Little Princes" and "A Nepalese
Journey, the Essence of the Annapurna Circuit". A Mountain in Tibet is good as well.
Where are you guys from? We're from Colorado.
Hi Renee, thanks for the tip on the book titles. You are a long way from home!! I live in Buckinghamshire so there is plenty of hill walking to help get me in shape for the trip. This will be my first visit to Nepal but hopefully not my last as I would like to go on the Everest Base Camp trip at some time in the future.
Cheers for now,
I'll be joining you all.
This is my second trip to Nepal - went to Annapurna base camp last November/December. From the last trip, I'd recommend taking a good 4 season sleeping bag (gets really, really cold above 3500m) and plenty of Mars Bars (though you can get them everywhere if you don't). Other than that, I'd suggest getting in training and psyched up to deal with thousands upon thousands of stone steps (on our last day, we'll walk down over 4000! - I walked up them last year) and for being made to feel horribly unfit when a porter jogs past, carrying 30kg while wearing flip flops!
See you all in October!
I just finished another good, principally based Nepal read, Snake Lake, by Jeff Greenwald.
According to Exodus the Annapurna Circuit promises to put us in touch with locals which for us is key to a good trip. We're bringing 200 small wooden animal cut outs that a local wood carver made for us to pass out while enroute. If any of you have room in your luggage you might consider bringing pens, a big hit with the children, or other bits for the kids.
Snickers bars are readily available as are Kit Kats.

From may last note, I have started to read through Sue's bolog recomend flipflops for the showers.
Renee I am from the uk Hampshire sea level and no hills ops! gym training.
looking forward to metting you all,
Two more for the trip. We did the 800km Camino Santiago last year but I reckon this will be a very different challenge. Looking forward to meeting up with you all.

Hi from Colorado,
Walking or at least cycling the Camino has been on of interest to me for many years. We'd love to hear your thoughts on this pilgrimage.
We live at high elevation so are not too worried about the mountains but our longest trek is about 50 miles over 6 days.
Cheers to all,
HiIt is only a week to until we start our trek around Annapurna,it seems such a long time ago that I booked this trip and even longer since it was put in my wish list. I am looking forward to meeting you all,any one traveling via Heathrow/ Delhi look out for a blue/gray day sac with an Exodus tag on the back,it may well be me.
Hi everyone. Not long now. I have been looking forward to this trip for quite a while. I'm flying from Heathrow as well Terry and if I don't spot you first, my backpack is a blue North Face Terra 35. See you all soon.
We're leaving Colorado on the 12th and routing through Hong Kong, arriving late on the 14th. We need a bit of time to recoup from jet lag before the trek. Last year we went through Delhi with a very long lay over, spending much of the time in a pretty bare bones holding area with little to eat. I mention this so that those of you transferring through Delhi purchase snacks before your lay over.
Safe travels all.
