Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi! I’m a 33 years old guy from Spain and I’m planning my dreamed travel: visit Nepal by myself. I’m planning to do Annapurna Circuit Trek without guide or porter. I will be in Kathmandu on September 25 and I want to start the trek from Besisahar arround September 27 if everithing is ok. I want to include Tilicho lake in my route and probably I will finish the trek in Jomsom. I have 12-13 days to do it. I’m looking for partners to do the whole trek or a part of it.

  1. Hello Jose.
    I’m 53 years old male from USA. For me this is a very big deal and I am tentatively planning to trek without guide or porter. I will be in Kathmandu on September 12 and need to get the gear I’ll need in Kath. and/or Pokhara before I begin. Though I have done long-distance hiking before, I’m actually not familiar with ‘high altitude’ long distance hike but I am definitely looking forward to it! Since I’ll be ready to hike sometime after mid-September If we do hike jointly, I’d need to wait for your arrival, that is possible I think for me, for a partner I don’t mind to wait if I must. Since I need to ‘gear up’ after arriving, maybe I can just wait if you would want to partner with me. I also want to include Tilicho lake, my intentions are to do the entire circuit which I understand can be done in 2 – 3 weeks, depending. Are you doing the entire circuit or cutting some parts out due to time constraints? Time is not a factor for me but I am definitely (at this point) seeking to partner with 1 (or more) for the trek. Thanks, and your reply is welcome.

  2. Hello Thomas! Thanks for your reply. I didn’t finish my travel plan, I only will be in Nepal for 3 weeks an I want to complete the Annapurnas circuit in 13 or 14 days. If you want I can give you my e-mail address and we can be in contact and see if we can start the trek together.

  3. Hello Jose! your itinerary sounds just like mine, but a little earlier than I had planned. I might be able to move my trip earlier. By the way, I lived in Spain 10 years ago, and I loved it!

    • Hello Steve! Thanks for your reply. Please let me know if you are going to move your trip. I can’t ask you for move your trip because I’m not really sure abaut when I’m going to start the trek. I’m glad you loved to live in Spain. Hablas español?

  5. Hello Jose,
    I am local person from kathmandu and planning for Tilicho lake trek. My initial plan was to return via same route instead of going to jomsom and back to Pkh. But now seems I will change it to Besisahar-Manang-Tilicho lake- jomsom-pkh (via air/bus)- ktm.

    I am also planning to go there in solitude. Leaving ktm on 1st oct.

  6. Hello Jose.

    I’ll reach Pokhara on September 25th. I plan on trekking the Annapurna Circuit on a pretty tight budget. I have ~15 days for the trek and I’m absolutely flexible regarding the route/itinerary.

    I’m also looking for partners to travel with.

    Please let me know if we could possibly travel together.

    Thanks.
