    Default Annapurna Circuit Road Info, Jeep prices

    I just returned from a quick trip around the AC. 10 days including transportation in and out from Pokhara. I just wanted to pass along some information in case someone else needs it.

    If you plan on taking a jeep towards Chame, catch it in Besishahar. Although not as easy as you may think. I was traveling alone and couldn't obtain a spot b/c all the jeeps came through booked full already. A bit impatient, I caught the bus to Bhulbule, however, I should've stayed in Besi Sahar and waited for a spot. From Bhulbule I got lucky and caught a ride on the top of a jeep packed full of tourists.

    The road is a nightmare for anyone who gets car sick. I don't get sick but the road was still not fun. I road from Bhulbule to Chamche. 2.5hrs

    Besi Sahar - Koto : quoted at 1500rs
    Bhulbule - Chamje: 700 rs. 2.5hrs

    FRom Chamje I got off and walked to Tal. All in all the jeep probably saved me 1-2 hot days trekking, but it was uncomfortable and dangerous. I only recommend the jeep on the Chame side if you can get a seat up front, inside the cab.

    Rani Pauwa - Jomsom : 680rs, 1.5 hr jeep
    Jomsom- Ghasa : 800rs, 3 hrs bus
    Ghasa-Beni: 390rs, 3.5 hr bus

    The road on the Jomsom side is nicer but still not great even by Nepali standards.

    Thank you for the information about the road and jeeps . .
    It's April 2015 and I'm heading to Dharopani and then a little way up to Tilje away from the Annapurna loop.
    Anyone got recent information and advice about jeeps from Besisahar up towards Chamje, Tal and Dhorepani ?
    Particularly safety of jeeps on this route . .
    Is it markedly more safe up to Chamje( which seems easier to find jeeps to)?

    Thanks for any help . .
