Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi there!

I will arrive in Kathmandu on the 16th of October (flight TBC) where I will be spending around one week. I’m then planning to go hiking the Annapurna circuit at a slow/moderate pace as I don’t have any major trekking experiences nor time limits.

I read the average itinerary is 21 days long but I don’t mind spending a couple of days extra here and there or shorten it in case I want to go somewhere else. I’m really open to any options 🙂

I will try and keep my expenses as low as possible staying at teahouses, eating cheap meals and avoiding many jeep tours.

I’m really friendly and sociable but I also enjoy spending some time alone. I love taking pictures, practising yoga, chatting about other languages and cultures and discovering new recipes.

If you will be in Nepal in October/November please drop me a message 🙂

  1. Hi Jessica,

    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. Annapurna circuit and base camp will definitely be on my list. We are very similar in style for trekking. I too like to take my time to enjoy the scenery and take ton of photos and time-lapse. 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

  2. Hello Jessica

    My partner and I did ABC in April of this year and I am returning in November to do the Annapurna Circuit. I have booked my flights (1/11 – 23/11) for £350 return and will arrange the rest shortly.

    I live just outside of London and work in London and plan on making the most of the trek. If this suits your plans then let me know.

  3. Hi Jessica,

    My name is Olga and I am from London.

    I am planning a trip to Nepal around your dates and I was in between Annapurna Circuit and Everest Base Camp.

    I have never been to Nepal before but I have done quite a few long distance treks in the Alps and doing two again this summer.

    Please let me know if you are still looking for a partner.

    Many thanks,
    Olga

  4. hey Jessica,
    I am also planning to do the Anapurna circuit at about that time and I am looking for some reliable trekking partner/s to join me. I have not quite fixed the dates yet but plan to go end of October and will have 4 weeks: a couple of days in Kathmandu and the remaining time for the trek.
    I have lived in or near the Alps for the past 6 years and have done quite a lot of hikes and some alpine hikes up to 4000m.
    It will be nice to find like-minded people for this adventure so let me know if you are still looking for a partner.
    cheers,
    Latina

    • Hi Latina,

      I am Olga, I sent a msg to Jessica too looking for a hiking buddy for Oct – Nov.

      Let me know please if you would like to chat about the trip and maybe join up. I haven’t got anything fixed yet too so fairly flexible on dates. I am planning to do roughly 3 weeks plus minus a few days.

      I know Alps pretty well and have done lots of hiking there. I am doing Tour of Monte Rosa this July there again.

      Many thanks,
      Olga

    • Hi Latina,

      I’m Luisa , I’m originally from Peru but currently living in Israel. I will be arriving at KTM on October 31 and want to do the Annapurna Circuit. I don’t have an exact day to start the circuit, I can be a bit flexible, but I have to be back to KTM on November 23th.

      Since I’m traveling alone, I want to find some partners to trek with, please let me know if your dates matched mine, and if we could join your group. Thanks!

    • hi Luisa, I sent you a pm.

  5. hi Olga,
    yes, i am interested in joining up. I will send you a pm.
    cheers

  6. Hello! I am going to be in Nepal around the same dates to trek the Annapurna Circuit. I am somewhat flexible on start and end dates. I have 3 weeks total in Nepal (my trip dates are Oct. 19th to Nov. 12th including overseas flight dates) and I hope to do the trek in about 2 weeks more or less. I would love to link up with your group. I have never been to Nepal but have been doing a lot of intense hikes and backpacking trips in California this summer. In previous years I did longer treks in Patagonia (with a partner) and Camino de Santiago in Spain (solo). Cheers

    • hey Janna,
      so far the plan is to get to the starting point of the trek on 2nd November, so probably starting with the real trekking on 3rd Nov. Before that i will be in Kathmandu (from 28th Oct). I’m not sure if these dates are good for you. But let me know, if you still want to team up. 😉

    • Hi Janna,

      I am looking to start the Annapurna Circuit at a similar date to you. Around 24th Oct-5/6th nov? Let me know
