Annapurna Circuit Trek
Hi everyone 🙂 I’m Katie, 35, from the UK, currently on a two month Himalayan trip.
After a last minute change of plans I’ve just arrived in Kathmandu a bit earlier than I originally planned so although I really want to do the ACT, I don’t have anything organised yet! That said, I’m ready to go pretty much whenever, but ideally by 1st November at the latest.
I’ve done some hiking before, including quite a bit in Patagonia earlier this year. The biggest hike I’ve done is the W in Chile. I don’t hike super fast, especially on steeper sections. The only thing I’m wary of with ACT is the altitude – that will be a first for me – but even with that concern, I’m not sure it’s worth paying out for a fully organised trip (but am open to joining up to one if I find a nice group and it’s not hideously expensive). If not going with an organised trip I would like to at least have a guide. Maybe a porter – undecided on that.
Looking to stay in teahouses. Probably finish in Jomsom, so I think around 12 days but I’m happy to take a bit longer and take side trips…
Would love to have a couple of people to do this with…let me know if you’re considering a departure anytime between now and 1st November and you’d be interested in joining up!
