Day 01-02: Kathmandu by Bus to Besisahar(760masl) to Chyamche(1,440masl)

16 Days Winter Self-Guided Solo Hike in Annapurna Circuit  (5,416masl) and Base Camp (4,130masl)
January 06 to 21, 2016

Annapurna Circuit and Base Camp Introduction

There is an ordinary bus from Kathmandu (Gongabu Bus Park) to Besisahar which departs daily at 0600H at less than 500 NPR fare. Since I still have fear of inevitable motion sickness from my last long bus ride, I decided to take the Pokhara tourist bus from Kantipath, dropped-off to Dumre for a local bus to Besisahar. Upon my arrival in Besisahar, I was surprised that there was already a 4x4 jeep that could bring a hiker all the way to Pisang or Manang. I inquired about the fare and they told me 4,000 NPR depending on passenger quantities, thus, even departure time is unpredictable. Good thing my hiking instinct on me kicked-in and reminded that taking this ride is like a cheating for completing the circuit. TIMS checkpoint is Besisahar for entry hike. Another local bus to Ngadi since it was already late afternoon and stayed there for a night. The next day, trek from Ngadi to Chyamche was somehow an easy trail.

REMINDER: Please take note that my trekking hours is of below average, I'm always lagging for around an hour to the next destination. Also, check-out bill in the morning day after includes lodging for 1 room, dinner and breakfast.
