    Annapurna Trek

    by AllieK Online Now Jul 7, 2016 at 1:14 AM

    Hi there!

    I am traveling to Nepal in October and due to time times I am only about to do a short trek (less then a week)

    I was looking at the Annapurna Panorma/ Poon Hill etc

    Should I book with a tour agency before I leave or is it cheaper to do it once you arrive with a local tour agency? I found a 5 day hike for $625aud. What would the normal cost be if booking on arrival to Kathmandu or Pokhara?
