The trek was great. Bharat was so fit for a 48 year old. Nikki and I had good pace so he was able to adapt the route to cater and we did 40km in 2.5 days which was awesome. I believe Dhampus and Australian camp hiking from Pokhara is the best hiking we choose although weather was not in our favour beacause of mid monsoon time. I will be back and keen to do Annapurna circuit anticlockwise flying out of Jomsom. I am hoping this can be done in 7-8 days. Or ABC. Let me know if either of those can be ok in 7 days.
