Revised Nepal Annapurna Trek 16 days Itinerary

Image copyright @ The Travel Paradise
This picture was taken at Ghandrung on the Day 4 morning after I woke up from my bed at about 5.30am-6.00am. What a wonderful morning!!!

We had changed our road trek during our trekking. Initially, we planned to complete the trek in 10 days to Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) but end up we changed it and completed in 9 days.

The reason was due to we had met a Hong Kong guy who was also doing the trek to ABC where he planned to complete in 9 days. We started our trek together, then our guide suggested us to complete in 9 days if possible, and we will have one more day which could spend in Kathmandu for site seeing. Of course, our guide did not say a "Must" to complete in 9 days, we can say no if physically could not do so.

Of course, this change will make our trek much more difficult, not only physically but also mentally. After I discussed with my wife, we decided to try to complete in 9 days. However, we did not force ourselves, we would stop wherever we want if we could not do it.

To us, this was a grim test for our physical stamina and energy. However, we did it!!!!
