Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi,
I am interested in walking the Annapurna Circuit Trek in March. I have about 1 month in Nepal (need to fly out the latest on 3rd of April).
Currently I am alone, but I’d love to meet up with some people to start the hike together with. I am not bound to strict time limits (30 days should be more than enough!) so I am pretty free in going as fast or slow as I’d like myself and in taking several side tracks if I’d like that.
I love the freedom of being able to choose how far I’d like to walk each day, so I am not someone to plan a strict ittinary ahead of time.
But I also like hiking together with other people, so if there is someone else out there who’d like to start the hike with me, then we can stay together for as long as we’d like 🙂

Please feel free to ask me any questions!

  1. Hi, Annelies
    my name is anoop . i am from India. I am thinking to go for annapurna trek in te month of march. what’s your plan ?

    • Hey, no I am still in the planning phase 🙂 And am hoping to get a little group together to start the trek out with 🙂 If you’d like we can skype or something like that in Feburari (now in the middle of exams) to discuss and see whether our plans fit together.

  2. Hi Annelies,

    I would also like to do the Annapurna Circuit in March. I am flying back on March 30th, so we have should have more or less the same time frame.

    My approach in planning the trekking is quite similar to yours. I would also like to start with some other people and just see how far we get. I am not on a tight schedule and open to side trips. There are only very few things that I have actually clear: I would like to do (or at least try to do) the entire Annapurna Circuit (and not take the plane in Jomsom), spending an acclimatisation day in Manang seems to make a lot of sense, and I do not plan on hiring a porter.

    Please let me know, if you think that we can work something out.

    • Hey Christiane 🙂
      I think we could definitely work something out 🙂
      I was also thinking of doing the whole circuit, but only if it means scenic routes (I read something about the NATT’s), I am not interested in walking on dusty roads used by cars and trucks, etc. If that is the only way to make the whole circuit, then that is not something I’d want to do…
      Anyway we should definitely keep in touch!

  3. Hi Annelies and Christine
    Love the way you think about your upcoming adventure. Flexibility and appreciation are essential because the circuit continues to change with the encroachment of developments – (like the Italian vinyards and resort ) There are however many opportunities to get off the road – which aids aclimitation and offers the most magnificent views – esp after UPPER Pisang.

    For greater freedom and security maybe consider the Trekking in Nepal – Honeyguide app for Annapurna Circuit Trek US$11.99.

    Even though I already visited Everest Base Camp twice ( and Annapurna x2) I just bought the EBC app and it looks great – avalanch warnings, tea house info, sight seeing info, mountain finder etc
    enjoy your trip
    Cheers Harry (Happy)

  4. Hey Annelies,

    I travelling in Nepal from the 16. February to the 31. March, so we should also have the same time frame.

    For me it is important to take it easy and to do sidetrips as well.
    Your plan sounds quite similuar to mine. I am also not having strict plans of the trip.

    But I think it is important that we should promisse to each other to take care of every one of the group and to leave no one alone.

    I would be very happy about an response.

    Best wishes
    Lea

  7. Hi there!
    I am planning to do the Annapurna Circuit starting at the beginning of March (I’d say on the 5th, latest) and I was wondering if there’s still a chance I could join you 🙂 slow pace and low/mid budget sound good to me!
    If you’re interested let me know, I can add you on Facebook or… meet you directly in Kathmandu, I’m arriving on the 8th of February. Cheers!!

  8. how about trekking with our agency for 1720 usd per person for annapurna circuit including all your meals during trekking…the cost could be reduced if you travel in group though
