The Annapurna Circuit
This 16-day trek (21-day round trip) through the Himalayas peaks at Poon Hill and is suitable for those with some hiking experience and a good level of fitness.
Mornings start at 7AM with a 10-minute guided meditation followed by breakfast. After packing up, hikers hit a daily trail which lasts for about six hours and includes 15-minute rests every 45 minutes to maximise weight loss and minimise joint/muscle damage.
Come 5PM, the walking portion of your day wraps up and dinner is served; expect traditional food such as daal bhat (curry with rice and lentils) paired with some Western comforts like vegetarian burgers. Hunker down for the night at a local guesthouse - the legendary Bob Marley Guesthouse is a highpoint - and then hit repeat the following morning. Be sure to pack a swimsuit for the inevitable hot springs soaks, while the post-hike relaxation in Pokhara is a weary wanderer's delight. The trek is suitable for those with some trekking experience and a good level of fitness; reaching the 5400m Thorong La Pass will leave you with an ultimate sense of achievement.
