Two of us are planning a trip to Nepal which might fall during peak treking season- and id love to do the annapurna trek with just me, my friend and a map, as id like the freedom of doing it alone and to go at our own pace.
i guess my main worry is that if we did go at a busy time the accomadation might fill up and we'd be stranded out on the mountainside... its a bad place to find yourself without a room! what are peoples experiences doing peak times? how frequent are the teahouses on the main routes, and do they fill up? And with no porters etc is the map easy enough to follow alone?
