This is the name given to stopping and resting at Tea House or Lodges on your trek.
There are many small villages as you trek along the trail and all offer food, drink
and accommodation. This is a very popular way to travel and Tika knows the best ones
to stop at on the trail for for food, accommodation and value for money.
Trekking In Nepal.
The Annapurna Circuit is amongst the most famous of all treks and is around 118 miles
(190 km) long. Typically it starts at Besisahar and finishes at Beni or Naya Pul.
Acknowledged as one of the worlds classic treks it is usually tackled in an anti
clockwise direction due to the height of the Thorung La which is 17,769ft (5416m).
The entire circuit cab be done in around 18 days which allows time for acclimatisation
on the way.
Instead of doing the whole circuit you can take one of the shorter treks around the
Annapaurna. One of the most popular is the Jomosom (Jomsom) trek. Typically, flying
from Pokhara to Jomosom trekking up to Kagbeni ans Muktinath and then trekking back
down through Tukuche, Ghasa, Tatopani, Ghorepani, Birethanti and Naya Pul. Alternatively,
you can walk up the same route and often people fly back from Jomosom.
The Annapurna Base Camp (Annapurna Sanctuary) is a 7-12 day trek which takes in one
of the most spectacular mountain amphitheatres in the world. Almost a complete ring
of high peaks many of which top 23,000 ft (7000m). Spectacular and unforgettable.
It is very important that when trekking towards high altitude there must be plenty
of time to acclimatise. On high altitude treks we always stay a day or two at villages
on the way to make sure that you are ready for any high altitude activity. Tika is
very particular about this and quite rightly so.
