Annapurna Circuit Trek

On the 18th of September I’ll arrive in Kathmandu. After a few days in the Kathmandu valley im planning on going to Pokhara from where Ill start the AC somewhere between the 22nd and 24th
I’d like to take time for some sidetreks maybe but won’t mind to do the first part by jeep. Also I would like to do it independently so a few trekkingbuddies would be nice!
My flight out is n the 12th, so I want to be finished around the 9th.
I might also be interested in doing the Sanctuary instead.

  1. Hello Marjolein,

    I am planning to start the trek on the 20th. We will likely Jeep past besi sahar a bit. Then we will hike to Muktinath (just after the pass), rent mountain bikes and ride them to Tatopani over 2 days. After that we are planning to hike to Annapurna base camp. We are planning 20 days for the trek which should have plenty of time for some side trips. Especially with the time mountain biking and Jeeping to Tal or Dharepani at the beginning will save.

    Let me know if you’d be interested in joining up!
