First time Annapurna circuit and throng la pass in 1999 august is my  memorable time in my life. There are  one couple of Spanish couple. Memorable things of the trip is first time throng la pass(5419m). we stayed   throng high camp (4700m)instead of Phedi or Throng phedi(4300m). from yak kharka  to high camp was our camp before walking up or crossing throng la(5416m).we stated hotel high camp at the high camp point. Second memorable things in from Jagat to Chamche section there was landslide and stone falling so we walked up top of the hills from Jagat village then down to chamche then stayed  2 hours more camp Tal. We walked completely from Benshiar to Jomsom then fly to pokhara from there. Our itinerary of that time are-Benshiar to Nadhi,Nadhi to Jagat,Jagat to Tal,Tal to Danaque,Danaque to Chame,Chame to Pisang,PIsang to Manang,rest day in manang,Manang to Yak kharka,yak kharka to high camp, high camp to throng pass then down to muktinath,Muktinath to Jomsom stayed at Hotel Tilicho. Jomsom to Morning fly to pokhara. This was my base of my carrier as a trekking guide in Nepal. Annapurna circuit trek still famous and wide recognized in the worldwide. It is easy  most of the time and adventurous throng la pass trek in Nepal.


I had another great chance to go Annapurna circuit trek as a trek guide on 2000 A.D. There were 3 spanish in the team , they came from Venezuela. Among three 1 is single ,2 people are couple. This was the 21 days trip all the way walk from Benshiar to Birethathi within 21 days. I stayed last year Hotel at Jagat but three Spanish people choose Hotel themselves at Jagat. One more memorable things in this trip is we walked from Manang to High camp within 1 day. We jumped the itinerary  1 day so we came pokhara one day before. Third memorable of this trip is three Spanish client choose the hotel at Lete Kalopani themselves . Kalopani alpine forest lodges was the CTVT organized lodges. We start trip from Jomsom but become dark  at the time of reach Kalopani Lete. In kokethahi , they choose the hotel but they donot like Hotel. Most important things in this trip was , of of elder had a Binocular with the  book of the Birds. When birds we see , we were informed him for the research. Another memorable things I remembered that they hired a horse from Kagbeni to Jomsom.

Down to Ghrru or at the beginning time of  steep parts we down to next gorges . we walked forest and forest then mixed in the main road muji near the Bargha village. This trip was my long trip because of  connecting with Annapurna base camp. Can  you believe this was 27 days trip but finished  25 days. Normally I passed the throng la(5416m). Oh! I remember now , after passing Throng la  we down further down to Kagbeni instead staying Muktinath temple.

I did not remember time I think it is before 2003 or After royal massacre  in Nepal. I suppose 2002 spring at April I had another great chance to Annapurna circuit trek with one French Canadian who was 60 by the age at that time. He had a big camera and skill of professional photography. From Dharapani we excursion up to the  Bimthang route of Manaslu circuit. By that time I did not go  at the manaslu trek. We stayed the hotel Dharapani  and next morning ,we go to the kharche, yak kharka. At the basic tea houses we sleep  then next day back to the Dharapni. We stayed that time in Throng phedi. First time I stayed Throng phedi at this trip. In my previous trip used to stay in Throng high camp. Next morning we wake up 3 am for the throng la challenging pass. This 60 years old French man going to cry like a child from beginning of the trip. I already carried his bagpack , again he become tired without heavy bagpack. Then throng high camp to Thorng la pass I carried his extra 12 kg bagpack.  We continue the trip after tadapani we go to Chomrong according the previous secdule.

This is the time on 2003 October, I had nice time to go annapurna circuit with Throng la pass trek. Like a previous journey this trip in Annapurna circuit also unique. With different customer or guest or client have different great experience. Mr. David who said already been in the Annapurna base camp trek in previous year , this time I like to trek with Guide in Annpurna circuit trip. In Bahun danda I feel difficult for the accommodation the room. In Bahun Danda has just 3 tourist standard Hotel, they like to big number of people rather single. Then, we stay another local normal tea houses in Bahundanda. remember now that time I was the student of Bachelor of Arts first year. Memorable things of the journey is escape from accident. When we walked up to the Tal from Chamche, heard of the donkey crossing our way. Mr. David walk from river side. Another heard of the Donkey come fast then mr. David fall down. Oh! By God grace Donkey man immediately give a hand and pull him. I cannot imagine if he couldnot give hand and catch David.

Sixth time in Annapurna circuit trek

In the April I had so great chances to Annapurna base camp . This is my memorable trip because I got the trip at the time of difficulty of the money. Middle  of the march I got the trip to go circuit of the Annapurna. I married the same month and got the trip same month. To recover my marriage  money this trip give some help. So I could not forget this trip in this views. Second things, My customer was also very soluble  and understanding person. At the high camp beginning of the trip , she feel vomiting then I told her this is just one symptoms. Before appearing another symptoms ;you already crossing throng la after this all the way down. Why  no try to go Throng la, it is just 3 hours. I give great courage for her and she normally success pass throng la. This evident I remember , still  that I give great courage for her trip.

Seven time Annapurna circuit trek:

Mostly maoist was control the village areas. We had a great party in pokhara on the occasion to finished the great annapurna circuit with Throng la pass trekking. Many people feel free after passing the throng la. Before throng la pass , many trekkers imagination release from tension after crossing throng la. Most of the trekkers mentality  thinking challenging Throng la. They frequently asked how difficult the Throng la. Normally if you are fit physically fit  and normal walking then you can pass the throng la very easily. We meet mr shiva , we used to say him Mr. Shiva even he is trekkers . In pokhara we amuse cocktail party in the Amstardam club in pokhara till midnight. Mr. Donald paid the good cocktail party Bill.


Eight time in Annapurna circuit trek:


Donot said me how are you?, Why you buy only oranges not Beer?

This trip Eight time also unique with French Canadian single guy. I remember one words saying by him that “ you donot buy a Beer, just you Buy oranges”. Still I feel laugh by his this strange natural behavior which he told unbelievable  and simple way. Second interesting things , he told us not saying  ‘How are you’. Mistakably by or average people habit  I told him how are you? Then  he hit me, I feel strange. I remembered that he told me not say him how are you. We have this memorable idea by his humorous nature. After pokhara he go to the Chitwan for Jungle safari. Next year when I go to chit wan , hotel owners in Chitwan told his stories about the how are you.
