This page outlines the posts related to a trek we did to Annapurna Base Camp the first week of November 2012. I hope it will help those planning their own adventure.
This 11 day trek plus another few days in Kathmandu and Pokhara was part of a 3 week trip that included a week in northern India (see the India page for the rest of the trip). Following are links to posts related to each destination. If you have any questions, leave a comment and I’ll be happy to answer.
