Annapurna Circuit OR Sanctuary Trek

Hi guys,

I’m planning to do either the Annapurna Circuit (around 18 days) or Annapurna Sanctuary that goes to ABC (around 10 days), and keen to have a trekking partner or a small group. I’d like to share a porter or a porter-guide, and accommodation in teahouses which usually have double rooms.

I am in Thamel at the moment, and my dates are flexible (visa ends on 4 Jan). We can meet up in KTM if you’re here, or meet and start in Pokhara.

For budget, according to what the agencies here quoted as well as what’s most often posted in forums, the price for a porter is around $18 and porter-guide $20, so sharing between 2 or 3 people would bring that cost down. Budget for food and accommodation along the way for solo trekker is around $25 a day, so sharing accommodation should also bring that down. So I would budget about $30 – $35 per day.

Please let me know if you’re interested. Cheers!

  1. Hi Jade, i am interesting like you… i am close to thamel right now… we could share trip, i didnt think in to contract q guide, I had thought to leave one of my bags in a hotel in Pokhara but we could speak about it… i must come back before 2 January. my telephone is 0034617512632 we could write by whatsapp….

  2. Cool! I didn’t think of hiring a guide, more of a porter or guide-porter if the price is reasonable, as it’s winter time and the clothes and sleeping bag gets bulky/heavy, and we can share one porter as my stuff isn’t all that heavy. I’ll text you on whatsapp later. Cheers!
