I have a few concerns about going on the Annapurna Circuit trek. It will be great if someone could give me some information and suggestions.
I have never hiked more than 2500m altitude before, and I am very worried about altitude sickness. I don't know if I would be able to cope and go through Throung La Pass. I will feel very bad if I have to be left behind by the group due to inability to acclimatize.
What will happen to those who cannot get through the pass? What happens to people who gets sick on the way, either AMS or cold, flu...other illness?
I am also unsure about my fitness. I could generally hike about 15km a day with elevation of 600m - 800m gain. What if I was the only woman on the trek, and that I was falling behind?
Any information will be appreciated. Thank you.
