Annapurna Circuit Fastpack Fall 2019
Calling all adventure seekers
Local time: 6:04 PM
Are you a trail runner looking for a new adventure? Or an experienced hiker who like to travel fast and ultra light? We organize small groups of active people who want to get way off the beaten path in the Himalaya. You can trust our years of experience helping people safely explore high altitudes. Let us safely handle all of the logistics so you can focus on making lifetime memories. Our fastpacks are 10-12 days long and include safe acclimatization schedules, experienced guides and risk management strategies. Travel at your own pace with a mixture of walking, power hiking, and running if the spirit moves you. Travel with only the bare essentials so that we don’t have to rely on porters or pack-animals to carry our gear.
