Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi,

I’ve been working in Kathmandu for a month and would love to do the Annapurna Circuit Trek before I go home, would anyone else like to join me?

I would be leaving on the morning of July 29th and need to be back in Kathmandu late on the 10th for a flight home the next day, so only have 13 days to play with.

Hope that’s ok, looking forward to hearing from you,

Matilda

  1. Hello!!
    The dates are ok for me. I would like to join you!
    Do you think taking à guide, or just both?

    • Hey! Yes I’d like to go with a guide, I’m not the most experienced trekker and I’m a bit worried about altitude sickness. Great that you want to join! Are you happy to go with a guide too? When do you arrive in Kathmandu?

  2. Hi, any chance leaving few days sooner – like 27th? Where would you like to start from – Jomsom or Besishahar? If there was a chance I’d lvoe to join you, but currnetly I am not in Nepal and might change my plans completely:)

    • Hey, sorry there’s no chance I can leave earlier, the project I’m working with doesn’t finish until the 28th. Welcome to join if that still works for you!

  3. Hi guys! Could I also join you? I’m currently in Nepal and have just finished a placement at the dental hospital. My friends leave around that time and I’ll be alone until 11th August when my boyfriend arrives in Kathmandu so back on the 10th also works for me. And I really wanted to do the Annapurna circuit whilst here. I’ve been frantically searching and emailing trekking agencies to find a group to join but there are none. So I’m so glad I came across this website! I’m in Kathmandu at the moment so could even meet up beforehand:)

    • Hi Jess, of course you can join! Great to hear from you. I’m back in Kathmandu later today so let’s definitely try to meet up. Currently negotiating prices with a trekking company and would be good to get a second opinion

  4. Hiya! Thank so much for getting back to me so quickly! I tried messaging you privately but it’s not working. I’m actually going to Pokhara tomorrow morning so if your free today when your back we could meet in Thamel? I was going to spend the day in Thamel going to trekking agencies so I’ll have a look. How many people are in our group? Also have you decided where you want to start/end from? I think besi sahar is the usual starting place and it takes 12 days to get to jomsom (lonely planet guide including acclimatisation days to prevent altitude sickness) so we could possibly fly jomsom to pokhara and then bus or flight to Kathmandu? It’s abit tight with days. What have your agencies said? My Nepalese phone number is 9810121488 and English number is 07907107691 for WhatsApp. Hope to hear from you today so we can meet before I leave

  6. I am also doing Annapurna Trek this season…..has done the short trek to Annapurna already and want to do more of long kind this season….July 29 is a hard month to start as its rainy season….

  7. Hi
    Im leaving to do the annapurna circuit on saturday. Im not sure how long I plan on taking to complete it but am happy to tag along for part of the way if you are still looking for trekking partners
    Martyn

  8. Hey, I’m also thinking of starting the trek on Saturday. Would it be cool if I joined?

  9. Hi Martyn & Rory! So Matilda and I have the trek planned with Nepal Eco Adventures. If you guys are interested in coming with us message us asap so we can arrange a discount for all of us:) hope you can make it!

    • Hey
      That sounds fun but I have been planning on completing the trek without a guide as money is quite tight.
      Im heading to besisahar tomorrow nonetheless and may see you guys on the trail.
      Happy trekking
      Martyn
