I tried to trek through the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal in June 2013. I reached as high as Letdar (4200 meters). It rained a lot from Manang onward. The continuous snow at Letdar finally convinced us to turn back and give up on the trek. It is always sad when I cannot complete a trek, but then if the weather is adverse I would like to come back to the place, rather than continuing foolishly.
I have written a day by day account of my trek. So here I collect it in one post. The posts after Letdar may not interest you as I was walking back whereas you would be going ahead. But I need to record it so that I may remember even 10 years from now. I cannot tell you how happy I was when we finally got to the road and found a jeep that would take us back to the civilization!

So without further delay here are the posts in detail-
If you have any questions about the trek, do leave a comment or write to me. My email is in my profile at the top right of this page. I wish you a better weather than I got at the Annapurna Circuit Trek!
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quite my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
