Low cost 8-9 days Annapurna circuits treks from KTM to PKR

I have been to Nepal 6 years ago with 2 close friends (last time went to ABC). I decided to trek again in November 2016 (i.e. next month) with my energetic father, for around 10 days (5th-15th in which the real trek will take 8-9 days). I have my guide which they are very reliable so I will have them in my trip again.

Looking for trekking mate travel together, in order to lower the cost (e.g. share the fee for vehicle and guide).

Are you suitable?
The guide and I are both speaking English, so
(a) if you can speak (or a little) English;
(b) you do not have particular trekking options or you are okay with Annapurna circuits treks;
(c) can meet at KTM on 6th, or meet at Beshishahar on 7th;
(d) target to thoron pass , which is the highest pass 5416mtrs;
(e) finish trek at PKR on 14th, and
(f) aim to share the cost in order to lower the total travel expense;
then maybe we can be a travel mate.
