Annapurna Circuit Trek


My name is Christine and I am planning on doing the Annapurna Circuit Trek in February 2019. I am moderately fit but am very inexperienced – this will be my first time hiking at high altitude, and my first time on an extended hike.

The dates that I am looking at are from the 15th of February (arriving in Kathmandu) until around the 28th of February or 1st of March. These dates and the itinerary are flexible.

At the moment it’s just me doing the trek but I may find some friends from home (Australia!) to come with me or other travellers online who are looking to trek at the same time as me.

At this stage, I am not looking at hiring any guides or porters, but I am open to the idea of guides if we can split the cost between a group.

If these dates coincide with your trip, I would love to hear from you!

  1. Hi Christine,

    I’d be up for trekking with you- I too am moderately fit and first time at high altitude!
    I’m going to be starting off in India in Jan so could meet you in Nepal in Feb.
    Ideally be nice to do independently but I’m also quite easy in terms of splitting cost for a guide. Are you fixed on the 15th Feb or would you consider a week or so later?

  2. Hey!
    A friend and I are also looking into doing the Annapurna Circuit right around this time. This will also be our first time on an extended hike. We would be very interested to get a decent sized group together and possibly plan for a guided trip while splitting the cost. We plan on landing to Nepal sometime between the 5th and the 15th of February. We plan to get to Pokhara no later than the 15th as it is easiest to start from there.

    Let me know what you think!

  3. Hi Christine, I’m planning for Annapurna circuit around the same time. I have some experience trekking in Nepal with a guide company and will use the same company for the upcoming trip. Due to work commitment, I have more limited time to spend. Right now it is only myself and open if someone joining. We can share the cost for the guide and probably the transport from Kathmandu to besisahar.
