Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi, my flight arrives on 3rd March into Kathmandu at 10.30am, I plan on spending the night in Kathmandu before catching an early tourist bus to Dumre followed by onward transport to Besisahar. I will spend a couple of weeks completing the trek to Pokhara with a pretty flexible itinerary, just got to be back in Kathmandu on 26th for flight back home. Treking pals would be great on any part of the adventure!

  1. Hi James,

    I will be arriving in KTM from London on 02.03.18 and am looking for trekking partners that would be interested in hiking the Annapurna Circuit/Base Camp and Tilicho Lake Trek without guide or porter, staying at tea houses. If this interests you please do not hesitate to contact me…:)

    Kind Regards,

    Dipesh

  2. Hey guys !

    Arriving into KTM on 3rd March. 9 PM.
    Could start on the 4th or the 5th depending on your plans.

    Have done a few treks in the Himalayas. EBC during march-17 being the last. Would love to trek along with some more people.

    Solo trekker with no porter / guide. Did my earlier trek with a guide but carried my own bag. If there is company, it would be awesome.

    Thanks,

  3. hey james,
    looking to do the trek potentially around then as well. My flight back home is also on the 26th of march. I do fly into Kathmandu the 11th of February but would sort of rather wait to hit the higher elevations of Annapurna more towards march giving me time to explore other spots in Feb. and let the weather (although unpredictable) do its thing.
    I’m also looking for a pal or two to do the trek with. I am far from familiar with the geography but have spent the better part of the last 6 years living outside, practicing primitive skills, backpacking, etc. If your interested in sharing plans/ideas what not, maybe we could connect some more over the internet and/or meet up before at some point in Nepal. peace.

    the picture with the sheep got me, spent some time in the southwest regions of the US with nomadic goat herders!

  4. Hi James, and others!

    My name is Laurence, I’am from Montreal, Canada. I’m now travelling in Sri Lanka and will be flying to Nepal at the end of the month, on February 27th.

    Doing the AC was one of my plan too, but I will be pleased to shared the aventure with someone else! I might do it only until Jomsom, but nothing schedule really yet, I only also have to be back in Kathmandu for my flight on March 26th.

    May be it could fit? We could met in Kathmandou for a coffee! Let me know! 🙂

    Thanks,

    Laurence

  5. Hi James ! I am planning to do the Annapurna circuit trek starting beginning of March as well. I would like to do it without guide or porter and to do it quite slowly to enjoy the way and take pictures as I am practicing photography. Please tell me if I could join you for the trek !

    • Hey marie i m also looking for trekking mates to do the annaourna trekk starting in the next days. Maybe we can make a group together? 🙂

  6. Hey James, I would be delighted to join to you for Annapurna circuit trek. Like you I will arrive at Kathmandu on 3rd of March 10:30 am ( will you come from Doha Qatar? I reckon we will come with the same plane!!) I will depart on 23rd of March, thats so I intend to head to Besiahar next morning and keep going to reach Thorung La within 12 days.

  7. Hi Aldas,

    I am on the flight from Doha the same as you, me and a girl called Bekah are starting to trek on the 5th March and staying in Zostal in Kathmandu on the 3rd and 4th of March. We can discuss at the airport or over a beer in Kathmandu.

    Cheers.

    James

    • Nice to hear from you James! We can share our plan in Doha or Kathmandu, to keep in touch get me on facebook. Anyway I will start trek on 4th, but if available we could arrange to cross Thorung La Pass together.

  8. Hi . I just arrived in Kathmandu yesterday and plan to go for Annapurna Circuit around 4-5 March. I am very flexible in the route and speed (but don’t want to make it a race). I do not need a Guide but i think a porter would be nice (much more enjoyable + you help the community). I am happy to share porter for 2 ppls…. let’s meet in Kathmandu and plan. Seems there is a good group planning to go. So it should be fun !
    write me here or WhatsApp. +33 6 42 62 40 09 ..

    Cheers
