Annapurna circuit

Hi, I am planning to do the Annapurna Circuit in early Oct 2104. And would be interested in getting several people together to come up with an agreeable plan I am flexible with plan as I have plenty of time. I would prefer to fly out at Jomson due to the new road. I am an experience hiker and completed part of Annapurna before – its amazing and can’t wait to get back. If you think this fits in with your plans please contact me.

  1. Hi Martin
    Please could you keep me in the loop with your proposed trip. I live in Kathmandu so can be fairly flexible with my dates. Was it the ABC trek that you did before? I am considering this but also other treks in the Annapurna region and would like to travel with a small group or at least one other person. In October there would be a lot of people trekking and everywhere is marked, so I don’t think a guide is needed. However, I would hire a porter because I don’t like carrying all my gear. My profile shows what other treks I have done….I think I could be called more experienced than novice…..but it’s all relative!

    • Gidday Sue, hope you are well and enjoying life in Kathmandu. I am currently looking at joining a tour group “Green Valley Nepal” for a 15 day tour on Oct 4 with extra days in Kathmandu and Pokohara but would also value your opinion on a tour as you would have more local knowledge.

  2. Hi Martin
    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Life here is pretty hectic!
    My personal opinion on a paid tour is that much of it can be down independently but it really depends what you want…and how much it is. It sounds like a tour around Kathmandu and Pokhara without any mountains…apart from the fab views of course. I obviously have an advantage actually living here and have worked out how to get from A to B on public transport. Systems are basic and not everything goes according to plan but if you can maintain a laid back attitude, travelling and accommodation is very cheap here.
    Do feel free to ask me any more questions, although I am off to China tonight for 3 weeks, back for a week and then going to the UK for another 5 weeks. Time to take a well earned break!

    • Hi Sue,

      I am coming to Nepal in late September and staying until early December. I am very interested in trekking and also think it can be done without a guide. I would greatly appreciate any tips for Kathmandu and/or Pokhara as I will have plenty of time for day trips and such. Please keep me in the loop as well if anything arises regarding a trek in the Annapurna regions.
