Near the end of hiking the circuit, my father and I reminisced on some of our best and worst experiences over the past 21 days. We compiled a list of the best / worst of our Annapurna Circuit experience. Remember…this is only our opinion!
My Dad: Onion Tomato Lasagna in Marpha (so good he had it for lunch and dinner!)
Me: Dharapani’s Mushroom noodle soup and Momos
It was unanimous…our Gunsang guest house had the best hospitality there was and a great view that you would never tire of. Not to mention our ensuite toilet!
Also unanimous – the first guesthouse we stayed in with the bucket shower in the smelly outhouse was the worst. They people were super nice, but the rooms left something to be desired. Since we experience the ‘worst’ on the first night – we had nowhere to go be up from there!
Dad: Marpha – the apple capital!
Me: I agreed with Marpha for it’s clean and colorful décor, but the little village of Shikha came in a close 2nd!
Unanimous again…Ghorepani. Maybe this was due to the fact that we had to work so hard to get up there, and then realized it was just an over-touristed village with no character…and crappy cinnamon rolls!

I just spent 3 hours in the subway in Stockholm. No, it wasn’t stuck. No, I didn’t get lost. No, I wasn’t held hostage. I actually spent 3 hours in the subway on purpose.
