Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi, I’m a solo female trekker planning on hiking the ACT in March, starting in Besi Sahar and ending in Tatopani, adding on Poon Hill as long as everything goes according to plan. I’ll be taking a bus from Kathmandu to Besi Sahar and then spending some time in Pokhara (and celebrating Holi there) after leaving Tatopani. I’m looking for one or two other women to join me, mostly for safety but also to have a buddy to have a beer with at the end of the day. (: I’m planning on doing the trek unassisted but I wouldn’t be opposed to partners hiring porters.

A little about me: I’m 23. I live in Chicago. I’m a cyclist and a climber. I’m obsessed with my dogs, and I’m happiest when I’m outside. I’ve travelled a good amount, mostly in North America, Europe, and North Africa. This will be my first trip to Asia. It’ll also be my first hike over two days. I’m very easy going and friendly, but I’m also a bit of an introvert so when I hike I like to kind of be alone with my thoughts.

Let me know a bit about you if you’re interested! (:

  1. Hey Alexandra, take a peek at the trek I posted for mid march and see if it piques your interest!

  2. Hi Alex,
    I was planning on doing this trek two weeks earlier starting around mid-Feb (see my post). I’m also a female solo traveller looking for other easy-going and friendly companions. If your travel dates are flexible would it be possible to do any earlier to match my dates? Likewise I will see if I can postpone so our dates can cross over!

    • Hi Christine. Sorry I just saw this. I’ve already booked my ticket to Kathmandu so unfortunately I can’t do any earlier. If your plans change though, let me know and we can talk! Happy hiking! (:
