Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi! I’m a Kiwi girl heading over to Nepal and India in November for a 2 month stint of adventuring. I’m 22 years old, reasonably fit-ish, love the outdoors and adventures of any kind.

I’m planning on starting the circuit no later than the 19th or 20th of November. Would be awesome to get a group together for trekking.

Let me know if you would be keen to join starting on those dates 🙂

  1. Hi Rebecca!
    Hopefully I will be in Kathmandu on November the 14th. I’m planning to do the circuit with some sidetrips and eventually the base camp at the end. I will be in Nepal for one month I think…

    Since I will arrive on the 14th, I would like to start on the 16th or 17th, I dont know if thats possible for you?

    Best wishes from Germany 🙂

  2. Hi Jannes! yes I will be in Kathmandu from the 12th so keen to start anytime between 16th/17th and the 20th, just cant really start later than the 20th. I am keen to do some side walks as well so the 16th/17th is probably ideal. I have been in touch with quite a few others, seems to be heaps of people starting around these dates so I’m sure we will have no trouble getting a group together.
    Feel free to add me on Whatsapp +64 27 375 3986 or add me on facebook (Rebecca Thom), will be easier to stay in touch than through this site 🙂
    Best wishes from New Zealand 🙂

    • Hey Rebecca, thats great to hear! 🙂
      You can find me on Facebook under this name (Jannes Lojkasek), shouldn’t be any problem! 😉
      Maybe we could just meet up with the others on the 14th or 15th and we will get one or more groups together. Right now I’m on a bit of a rush, because I have to finish my master thesis…

    • Haha! I am exactly the same, handing in my masters thesis on the 11th of November the day before I leave 🙂
      Cool I will get in touch!

  3. Hey Rebecca,
    Im in Kathmandu from 15/11 and keen on getting started on the Annapurna circuit ASAP from landing after doing some last minute gear shopping. Im keen to avoid the new roads as much as possible and havent decided on guide/porter yet. I definitely would like to trek with a few people so we should keep in touch and see if our plans work out.

    • Hi Matthew,
      your itenerary and plans sound exactly like mine, so maybe we could also stay in touch? You can find me on Facebook (Jannes Lojkasek) 😉
      I already booked 2 nights – from 14th to 16th – at the 327 Thamel Hostel, looked pretty good.
      Best wishes from Germany!

    • Hi Matthew, Awesome! another guy I have been talking too was keen to start on the 17th so that seems to work with both your and Jannes’ timelines!
      Also keen to do the New Annapurna Circuit Trek (off the roads!!!) … and also undecided on a guide… I think I’ll wait til I get there and meet up with some people to decide whether we will need/want a guide 🙂

  5. Hi Rebecca! I’m landing in Kathmandu on the 18th..was planning to start the trek the 20th there. When are you guys starting now?

    • Hi Liesbeth, we are planning to start the trek on the 17th so we will be leaving a bit early for you sorry! 🙂

    • Gday Liesbeth,
      I’m arriving in Kathmandu on the 18th and am planning on starting the trek either 20th or 21st. If you’re still keen on someone to do the trek with around that time send me an email,
      I tend to look at weird things and invariably get sidetracked looking at rocks and plants so if this is a pain in the neck for you, no worries.

      Let me know what you reckon.

      Marc

    • Hello Lisbeth and marc,

      Would you guys be interested to start the trek on the 19th?

  6. Hey Rebecca,

    Sounds like you have a potential group, and I’d love to join if possible. Would prefer to do this independently with no guide or porter, and I just purchased the NATT guidebook today. I’m 31, from the States, and have been traveling for 1.5 years. Just finished the Three Passes Trek in the Everest region a little over a week ago. Looking to do the Annapurna Circuit plus maybe a side trek. I’m already in Pokhara, but I’m pretty flexible on the departure date since I’m in no real rush.

    Hope to hear from you soon. Cheers!
    Jess

  7. Hello Rebecca

    I am also planning to do Annapurna circuit on the 19th. My plan was to leave on Friday and start trekking on Saturday. I am very flexible and just have to be back to Kathmandu on December 7th

    I’m 27, reasonably fit and easy going. Let me know if you’d like to meet and discuss plans.
