For many years, I always wanted to walk at Annapurna base camp trek, but I did not have a job, I felt ashamed to go. Fears cross your mind, what do I do if I can not do it, what I fail, how difficult it will be, do I deal with height. Questions that can be answered by advice from others in theory, but actually in practice only. Using good words, "you will never know until you go". If you're dreaming or desperate in life, you sometimes have to cry and go for that.
The first time I went to Nepal I was a traveler who did not have any experience with a skilled track. I joined a group of companies with an internationally well known company and well-established culture and lifestyle. Together with the group, we completed a simple journey near Pokhara. This gave me a taste of walking and my eyes longed to the horizon and the snow rose to Annapurna base camp trek. I enjoyed our short trip, the organization, the joy of being in the group and the convenience of having the management and security of having a guide. But as many people do, I felt that something was crazy, a journey if anything] was a bit "too" was stubborn and it was hard to understand the real meaning of people and the Nepal culture.
Although our journey took from Jomsom to Muktinath, my heart was intending to Annapurna base camp trek, swith the flexibility of employing our own guide and porter, I split from my friend and towards the way to the base camp. This trip was perhaps one of the most challenging moments of my life. My porter was there for me to lead the way and carry the load of my pack, but he was quite unobtrusive to allow me to absorb my ideas and to incorporate a great cleaner of this region. The top we had more difficulty.
The only Annapurna campaign is probably one of the inspirational features I've been. Set in the center of the major Himalayas, it is like a bowl of mountainous fish, soundless, unfamiliar and completely out of this world.
I know one thing simple, if I went alone I could not do it, if I went with the group they would not enjoy or learn much about Nepal, Himalaya people living here and finally about me. I appreciate my door/guide to show me the way and know that he came from a well-known company that would have prevented us from the comfort that I could not leave any future trip to Nepal.
If your person wants to go alone, it is wise to employ a guide or porter who people and the culture of the area you are moving. Not only for security but for you to get better, more experienced experience.
