annapurna circuit trek - kickoff meeting - April 17, 2019

The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.
Ever thought about trekking the Annapurna Circuit, or just wonder what it is? The trek is being planned for October 2020 (not 2019). It is about 145 miles long, takes around 3 weeks and the highest pass is 17,800'. The plan is to use the same travel and trekking companies that we used for the 2016 Everest trek. Several of the Everest trekkers plan on going, so you can benefit from their experience. Feel free to show up even if you haven't signed up and are just curious. We will be having our kickoff party at Cindy and Dick's house on April 17 at 6 PM. This is a potluck party, so bring Nepalese or Indian food if you can and BYOB along with plates and utensils.
