    hi,
    i am sajesh from nepal. i am travel and tourism graduate. and i am still student. i have been to trekking around annpurna for 5 days. it is very good if u trek in group and with guide. u don't have to hire guide bu urself. all the group will be sharing the guides and porters.
    i would like to learn foreign culture and people, if u like me to find suitable package then please send me ur views to me at badesajesh@hotmail.com.
    i take my great pleasure in serving u
    till then cheer.

    I think you should at least hire a local guide. The Nepalese are very friendly and it will add to your experience. A good guide can educate you on their culture and surroundings that you will otherwise miss.

    hi. with 7 days, the best trek fr pokhara is the Poon Hill trek. u can do it in 5 days. the rest of the time, u can just laze around in pohkara. enjoy yr holiday.
