Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi, everyone!

My name is Maria, I’m 33 years old.
I’m looking for a partner to trek around Annapurna. I would like to start in 20th of October, but my dates are flexible a little.
I would like to trek without porters.

1. Katmandu-Besisahar
2. Besisahar-Jagat
3. Jagat-Tal-Dharapani
4. Dharapani-Timang-Chama
5. Chame—Upper Pisang
6. Upper Pisang-Naval
7. Nawal—Manang
8-9-10. oz. Tilicho
11. Manger-Letter
12. Letter High Camp
13. High camp, Thorong La pass – Muktinath
14. Muktinath-Marfa
15. Marfa-Kalapani
16. Kalapani-Tatopani
17. Tatopani-Gorepani (From here starts a treck to Poonhill).
18. Gorepani-Ulleri-dawn meeting on Poonhill
19. Ulleri-Nayapul, and by bus to Pokhara.

Poonhill could be changed for Mulday peak.
People say that Poonhill is too croweded.

  2. Hey Maria!

    I will arrive in Kathmandu in Oct. 26th and want to start the trek the following day. If your dates are that flexible maybe we can join each other on that trip.

  3. Hi Maria! Have you purchased your tickets yet? I will be trekking without a porter as well and am arriving in Kathmandu on October 13th. I will need a day or two in Kathmandu to settle in and get all the necessary permits, but if you were able to arrive earlier we could then start to travel together. Best of luck in finding a trekking partner!

  4. Hey Maria, I fly in the 21st so I’d be a little behind you. My plan is pretty similar to yours for the trip, so let me know if you want to meet up.

  5. Hi Maria,
    Have you
    Two older men (Larry and Richard) are starting the trek similar to you on the 20th. We will divert on the 31st to climb Thapa Peak (9 days). Any interest in the climb? See trip posting in this same A.C. category.

    We are looking for an independent climbing guide. Will not be using a trekking guide.

  7. Hi Maria,
    I am a 29 year old female from New Zealand. I am looking to do Annapurna circuit around the same time as you, flexible on starting day but will be arriving in Kathmandu sometime after the 15th October. Would you be interested in another partner to join you?

    • Hi Kirsty, Are you still looking for a trekking partner for Annapurna Circuit? I am looking to trek around the same time as you. My dates are flexible as well.

    • Hi Kirsty
      Im also planning for the Annapurna circuit. Will arrive in kathmandu on 15th October. Are you stilll looking for other trekkers to join? And are you taking a guide or not? Thank you. Jax

  8. Hi Jax,
    I arrive in KTM on the 13th and yes still looking for others. I’m indifferent about a guide but I would like to take a porter as I’m recovering from an old shoulder injury & don’t want to carry too much.

  9. Hello there. I will arrive in Kathmandu on the 13th as well, and be happy to start the trek around the 15th or later.
    Im in contact with a partner/partners, from another thread on this site, but we haven’t decided on anything yet. I suggest to meet in Kathmandu or Pokhara and figure out a route, decide on whether to take a guide or not, get to know each other and so. Are anyone keen to do that?

    • Hi Sandra, I
      am arriving Sunday evening now due to a delayed flight, would love to meet in Kathmandu and make a plan? I need to get permits & a few things on Monday, so could begin sometime from the 17th if that works?
