near Syage, Western Region (Nepal)

3 nights 4 days beautiful side trip at the beginning of classical Annapurna circuit. Wild forests, no civilization except few shepherds huts, little chances to meet people, breathtaking scenery. Maximum altitude 4900m, no special climbing skills or equipment needed. Warning: fast ascent, altitude sickness is highly probable for non-acclimatized hikers.

Please read comments for the waypoints, there you can find additional information about the trek

Fountain

Water source

Water source near first camp. Just when you reach the opening to the pasture, look for the trail in the forest to the right. It threads steeply down for some 20 or 30 meters. There you can find the small clean spring

Night 3

Campsite for the third night, 100 meters below the pass. If you get lucky you will have some snow here to melt. If you have enough strength left you can skip this site and follow the path to the valley 2-3 hours after the high pass, there at least you can find water

    Did you had previously acclimatization?

    Not at all, and I find it quite unusual that none of the 5 people experienced anything more than headache.
