About a year ago, I wrote what has come to be the most popular post on this site: How to Hike the Annapurna Circuit. At the time that I wrote it, I was frustrated with the lack of quality information on the Internet for people who were planning on hiking the Annapurna Circuit, so I decided what I could to help fill that gap.
I knew when I wrote the post that it wasn’t going to be comprehensive and that people would still need additional resources to completely prepare for the epic trek. But, I figured that I could add what information I could in the hopes that it could eventually help fill the informational void that surrounds one of the world’s best treks.
Well, nearly a year, 90 comments, and 19,000 pageviews later, it has become a valuable resource for people who are planning their trek in the Annapurna region. But many of those 90 comments and dozens of additional emails ask about things that were left out of my How to Hike the Annapurna Circuit post.
So, over the past few weeks and months, I’ve collected all of those comments and questions (and added more questions that I would have if I were hiking the Annapurna Circuit) and have put together an actual guide. So, without further ado, I humbly announce the arrival of the Wandering Sasquatch Annapurna Circuit Hiking Guide!!
This new guide is more comprehensive that my previous post. It includes more details about all aspects of hiking the Annapurna Circuit: planning your trip, what you’ll need to carry with you, route information, lodging information, costs, side treks, and much more.
And the best part? It only costs $1.99!
My hope is that after reading this guide, first (and second!) time trekkers will be more comfortable with the journey they will be undertaking before they set foot on a plane. I’ve also created it in such a way that it can help hikers currently on the trail have a better experience. I’ve intended this to be a beginning-to-end guide to help out with every aspect of hiking the Annapurna Circuit.
