I am arriving in Kathmandu on October 13th. I want to trek the entire Annapurna Circuit Trek. I have a departure flight out of Kathmandu scheduled for November 19th so there is plenty of time to do the trek as quickly or slowly as needed. I have not done any high altitude trekking before, but am otherwise a very experienced backpacker. I plan to stay in tea houses along the way, and I know that having at least one other person to join me on the trek would help keep the costs lower for both of us since we could split rooms.
A little more about me – I’m 31, and American Sign Language-English interpreter from the eastern United States. I like photography, and will be bringing my professional camera gear with me. I travel very light, and am a morning person. I am friendly, and love to trade stories. I welcome people of any nationality, gender, religion, orientation, and background. I am bilingual in English and ASL, but regretfully am not conversational in any other language. I have no shame with using a language book to communicate with locals on our trek, however! I am Buddhist. I welcome people who want to join me to for an portion of the trek, though I think it would be really great to find someone who wants to navigate getting from Kathmandu to Porkha together. I hear it can be a bit of a challenge figuring out which bus to get on!Reply
