Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi! I’m a French Canadian and solo traveler, I’m looking for 1 or 2 partners to trek. I would like to start hiking in Besisahar. I’m already in Nepal volunteering in a school. I will be in Pokhara around October 10 and I will be ready to start trekking around October 13-14. I’m flexible on the dates. I’ve never done such a long trek, so I will be taking my time. I would like to do the trek without a guide and I will carry my bag. I’m open to add the side trip to Tilicho Tal. If you are easy going and you are looking for a smily and enthusiast trek partner I am the one 🙂

  1. Hi Carolanne, also a french canadian!!

    I am landing on the 10th in Kathmandu and hoping to find partners to do the Annapurna circuit 21 days (or so). I’m leaving on the 9th, so I’d like to get started not too long after i get there. I have hiking experience. I’ve done many multiday trek but never 21. I’m just coming back from Peru in june and I did the Santa Cruz and Salkantay trek. I’m in shape but i’m not a super fast hiker. I did some independant treking in Mongolia 2 year ago but it was really easy to find our way since we were following a river to the top. I’m debating talking a guide or not. I’ve been told you don’t need one by friends who have done the trek but they recommanded to take one since they builded a road on the main path and it’s nice to get on the side tracks with a guide who knows where he’s going. I’m gonna carry all my gear. Would you be open to take a guide if we are a few people sharing the cost?

  2. Hi Caro,

    I am in Nepal and I am looking for a trek/partners for the dates of October 15th to 26th, I did the Annapurna Base Camp in August and there is really no need to take a guide. It is so easy to do by yourself with a partner, I think the circuit will be the same. We would just need to pay for food accommodation and transportation, I would love to see Tilicho, I heard it’s beautiful. Let me know if these dates work for you! I am in Kathmandu for the next few days!

  3. Hi Colleen! Would you be available a few days earlier? I’m in touch Caro trying to set a plan. Leaving on the 15th is a bit late for me.

    • Hi Jude,
      I will be in a retreat at Kopan Monastery until the afternoon of the 14th so the 15th is the absolute earliest I can leave. Don’t adjust plans for me if you already have some in the works! No worries, just keep me posted!
