Annapurna Circuit Trek
I am a young person from Guernsey (who’s heard of it?… no one had, its a small island in between England and France – so not as exotic as it sounds!) who’s just graduated from Manchester Uni and had planned to trek the ACT with a partner until he bailed on me two weeks ago! Anyhow, with my flights booked I’m still going to take this on.
I am not massively experienced but fit and very keen to still give it a shot but I’d rather not do it on my own. Apart from the physical challenge I’m hoping to meet some amazing people along the way, see new things and challenge myself.
I am staying in Katmandu in a hostel from the 28th September – 2nd October. Sightseeing and sorting out my passes etc… Then I’ll be heading to Besi Sahar around the 2nd October. I am trying to do this on a fairly tight budget so I am primarily looking to hike with a group of people instead of hiring a guide, but I am very open to the idea of hiring a guide too particularly due to my inexperience. I’ve already been in touch with a local guide who’s been highly recommended to me by a friend who did the trek in March, so have already found an honest and qualified contact if needs be.
I am flexible on start dates as long as its before the 6th of October. Tbh I’m flexible on most things as I’ve not yet booked my return flight and may stay on or travel further afield afterwards. I just want to have an amazing experience with some lovely people and would be grateful to walk with more experienced trekkers (or just intrepid novices) that would be happy to join me.
I look forward to hearing from anyone out there who’s planning to do the same thing around the same dates and doesn’t mind me joining them.
