Annapurna Circuit Trek

I will fly from Brisbane in Australia to Kathmandu in early October 2017 and I will spend October and November in Nepal hiking and immersing myself in the culture. I would love to share this adventure with some loving, kind, caring and compassionate travellers who are keen on leaving only their footprints and their love and kindness behind in this spectacular and beautiful part of the world.

  1. Hi Gordon,
    My name is Shenaz. I’m a female from Mauritius. Would love doing the Annapurna trip in October but I have about 12 days.
    Could you let me know what your itinerary is and if possible, we can start the trek together and part after 12 days.
    Would love to hear from you.
    Cheers,
    Shenaz

    • Hi Shenaz, Sorry for the late reply but I have been in the USA. I am going to give myself 2 months in Nepal in total and I will do the Annapurna Circut and then make a decision on what else to look at and explore … I am absolutely open to all ideas and I love photography and am an absolute advocate of taking ones time to smell the roses and enjoy the people and places visited … and of course fun, friendship and laughter with like minded people who believe in spreading love and kindness and in being empathetic and compassionate along the way … I have Scottish heritage and ancestry coming from pioneering and missionary stock and I was born in Zimbabwe in Africa although I now call, Australia home … it would be so great to meet with you and share an adventure … … I am away in France and Spain doing the Portuguese Camino from Lisbon leaving 21 April and returning to Australia 10th June … My Nepal adventure will be October and November months …. ..

  2. Hi Gordon,
    My name is Sam and I’m half Brazilian and half British. I currently live in Rio. I meant to do this trek now in April, however my trekking partner dropped out. I am planning to give myself between 25 and 30 days in Nepal. I am not a very fast walker and am more interested in taking in the scenery photographing and enjoying the experience. I also did the Camino in 2009 and ended up featuring in a documentary called: 6 Ways to Santiago. You might enjoy it. Do you have a rough idea of the route you’d like to follow? Please let me know if you are interested in exchanging more ideas on the subject. BTW, love, kindness and compassion resonates with me!

    • Hi Sam, Sorry for the late reply but I have been in the USA. I have indeed see 6 ways to Santiago and you sound exactly like the kind of pilgrim wanderer that I would enjoy sharing a Nepal experience with. Like you I am flexible on dates. I am going to give myself 2 months in Nepal in total and I will do the Annapurna Circut and then make a decision on what else to look at and explore … I am absolutely open to all ideas and I love photography and am an absolute advocate of taking ones time to smell the roses and enjoy the people and places visited … and of course fun, friendship and laughter with like minded people who believe in spreading love and kindness and in being empathetic and compassionate along the way … I have Scottish heritage and ancestry coming from pioneering and missionary stock and I was born in Zimbabwe in Africa although I now call, Australia home … it would be so great to meet with you and share an adventure … give me a yell … I am away in France and Spain doing the Portuguese Camino from Lisbon leaving 21 April and returning to Australia 10th June … My Nepal adventure will be October and November months …. lets do this .. Gordon

  3. Hi Gordon,
    So glad you answered! I have always wanted to do the Portuguese Camino. How awesome you are going to do it now. You are definitely living THE life. Please add me on Facebook so we can discuss Nepal in the upcoming months. I would love to share my experience in Nepal with someone like you. Let’s keep in touch and remember: BUON CAMINO!

  4. Hello!
    I’ll be in kathmandu October 4th with a very flexible schedule.
    Looking forward to do the ACT and Langtang. I really don’t wanna hire a guide, so I’m looking for hiking buddie(s) (it is cheaper this way also!).
    I speak spanish (native) and english.
    Hope I hear back from you!

  5. Hi Gordon!

    My name is Philippa and I am a long distance hiker from Canada. I’ve hiked the Camino, The AT (14) and the PCT (16).

    I’m planning on hiking in Nepal from Oct-Dec in 2017 and I am looking for some people to share the experience with! You sound like a great person and perhaps our plans might compliment each other’s,

    I am interested in hiking the EBC with some side trips–the Annapurna Circut–as well as the Mustang High route–I am also open to other people’s great ideas for things to do that I havent thought of!

    I am comfortable hiking without a porter of guide —but I’m also open to joining in on an organized group if it feels like a good option!

    Hope to hear from you! You are going to love the PCT!

  6. Hi Gordon

    My name is Fei, i’m a 30 year old guy from New York City. I have traveled to a few places and done some high altitude treks. I’m planning to spend 3 months minimum at Nepal for trekking. I will be arriving end of October. Hopefully you are starting the trek at late October. I too like to take my time to enjoy the scenery and take ton of photos and time-lapse. If you’re up for it we can trek out to take pictures for sun rise and sunset. I think spending one or two extra day doing side trips will be most ideal. I don’t know if you would like to combine Annapurna circuit and Annapurna base camp together in the same trip. I’m flexible on dates and activities but around 35 days would be realistic. Please let me know if you’re interested partnering up.

    Best,
    Fei
