Discussion on Annapurna

MrOrange :

doing the 12 or so day trek on the annapurna circuit. Are the towns along the way pretty hospitable and are there plenty of accommodations along the way? such as hostels, guesthouses?

Tenzing l :
"MrOrange, Namaste!! Trekking in Nepal is always amazing and wonderful as you are able to see the beautiful mountains and be able to meet cooperative and people with smily face. While doing the annapurna circuit, there are very small towns with fewer number of shops and guest houses.. The accomodations along the way are very simple one.. somewhere you can find attached bathroom somewhere not, somewhere electricity and somewhere not, somewhere hot shower somewhere not... so this the final things,,.. however you'll always find a minor guesthouses all along the ways. Apart from it please don't forget to go along with the good trekking agency as it will be hard for you to follow the trials in the mountain and you can't find english speaking person everywhere.

The Annapurna Circuit is the most popular trek in Nepal. The entire trek lasts three weeks from start to finish, weather permitting. Most trekkers begin the trek out of Pokhara (about five hours outside of Kathmandu). From there one must obtain an easy-to-process permit in order to spend more than one night on the circuit.

Granted the story is off of Reuters, but the splaying of the foot cast and the fact that the discoverers were Producers from SCIFI Channel........well...... But I want to believe
