Annapurna Circuit Trek

I’ll be arriving in Kathmandu on June 3rd and hoping to get out to Pokhara pretty much immediately. I’d like to do the Annapurna circuit with a few other people – either with or without a guide is fine with me. I have to be back in Kathmandu by June 23rd to meet a friend, but other than that am pretty flexible with plans. Interested in hearing what trips other people have planned.

  1. Hi, I am reaching Kathmandu on the 5th or 7th of June, would finalise this by next week. I Plan to trek the circuit as soon as I can reach Pokhara from there. I should be able to start the trek between the 6th and 9th of June. As of now I am traveling alone, another friend may join. Fresh snow on the pass may be an issue, I suggest that you have a guide atleast for the pass. There is another post for 8th of june, we all could probably hike together.

    • Hi Aman, that sounds like it might work out well, just as long as we make it back to Pokhara by the 22nd or earlier. Do you have any experience with finding a good guide?

    • Great. I think we could easily reach Pokhara before the 22 nd. We would have to fish for a guide at Pokhara or another option is to pick one on the way. Of what I know, most locals and porters understand Hindi, so it quite convinient. In any case I have requested a few friends to refer a guide. Let’s see.

  2. I reach Kathmandu on the 5 th of June.

    • Sounds good! I just responded to the post for June 8th, so hopefully we can all meet up.

  3. Great. Seems like it would workout. We will have to figure a way to get in touch once we are there.

  4. Hey I just arrived today in Katmandou and I was thinking of going to do the Annapurna tour as well. I guess that going in Pokhara to find a guide would be the cheapest option. What are your plans now? I would be interested to join anyway if you are still going to this area 🙂
