    Annapurna Circuit Trek


    Thanks for the nice blog about Annapurna circuit trek. I am a professional hiker, hiking for a few years. I want to visit the Annapurna base camp. Some trekking agency suggesting me hiring a trek guide and porter. But I want to visit this place alone. Do you have any suggestion about hiring a porter or guide? Can I travel with my map and how about English language communication there?

      It is a nice question about the Guide and porter while hiking/trekking to the Annapurna Base Camp. Sure, it is better to take a guide to every part of the Himalayan. If you like to travel alone it is also the good idea. Be sure that, you are very confident to travel alone to the Himalayan at your own risk.
