Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi everyone!

I’m Bastien, 27 years old from France. I recently quit my job and started backpacking, which I’m planning on doing for the next couple of years.

I just arrived in Kathmandu and went to do a trekking trip. The Annapurna circuit seems like the best bet for me, and I’m looking for people to do it with as I don’t really want to do it through an agency and I also don’t think it’s as safe and fun to go alone.

I don’t really have a precise plan (and I’m not really looking into having one either) so I’m very flexible about pretty much everything, my only limit being that I’d like to be in India for the Holi festival around March 10 so it leaves me with about 2 weeks for trekking.

Feel free to shoot me a message ! 🙂

  2. Hey Bastien! Rebecca here from Boston/Singapore 🙂 I’m planning on heading out the 21st as well from Kathmandu and would also like to do it ‘solo’, but think it would be great to have a buddy. Maybe we can meet up in kathmandu beforehand and swap ideas! More specifically i need someone’s brain to pick about what to pack haha. Talk soon. Rebecca

    • Hi Rebecca, I’m planning to start on the 20th or 21st as well if you’re interested in having someone to walk with and know on the trail or just want to meet up to swap ideas sometime. Let me know!

  3. Hey Rebecca! Sounds good but I’d like to head there a bit earlier. 19th would be ideal. If that would be alright with you then yeah we should definitely meet! Are you in Katmandu now?

  4. Hi Bastien, I’m currently in Thamel and planning to start the Annapurna Circuit on the 20th or 21st. If you’re starting one of those days, it would be great to meet up to know and maybe walk with someone on the trail. And if you’re starting before then, maybe I’ll see you out there!

  5. Hi Jim! I’m currently in Thamel as well, looking to get everything ready today to take off tomorrow (20th). Sounds like we have the same plan 🙂 Let’s meet! Where are you staying at?

  6. Oops, tomorrow is the 19th ^^ I could probably start one day later though, if you can’t get ready for tomorrow.

  7. Hey guys – I arrive in Thamel tomorrow midday. If I can get all my permits etc and some last minute shopping done tomorrow as well I can probably make it the 20th. But may be a stretch…but if it works out that’d be cool. wanna make a time and place to meet somewhere?
