Annapurna Circuit


I will be heading into Nepal around May 15th and looking to trek the Annapurna Circuit around May 17th. It will be my first time trekking Nepal and I would love to do it with someone who has experience with trekking. I have done a few smaller treks in Myanmar and Vietnam these past few weeks, but this will be my longest one to date. I cannot wait!

If anyone is interested in coming with me, please get in touch! My dates can be flexible given the right persuasion haha.

  1. Hey Natasha
    I am also looking for someone to do the Annapurna circuit with. But i arrive in Delhi on the 18th, then will make my way to Kathmandu and will be able to start the trek on the 20th or 21st?
    I do alot to trekking, mountaineering and climbing back home in NZ, so i can’t wait for this amazing trek!
    Hopefully you’re flexible with the dates?
    Thanks Kyle

    • Hi Kyle! My dates are flexible. Did you want to add me on Facebook and we can chat further about some details? There is a chance I might be doing the trek earlier though, but I am still trying to figure it all out. I’d love to keep you in the loop with everything though.

    • hey Natasha, I am currently at Pokhara, and I also circuit trek on 17th. I am not willing to take a guide. A trekking mate would be lovely.

  2. Hey Natasha! I guess we both are up for ABC trek. I am quite flexible with dates as long as they fall in the month of May. I have done some research regarding the trek. Let us discuss about it.

    hope to hear from you soon 🙂

  3. Hi Nathasha-

    We (my partner and I) will be traveling during the same time. We arrive in Kathmandu on May 16th. And plan to begin the Annapurna Circuit Trek on May 17th. It’s our first time too but we are meeting a guide and porter in Besisahar. Right now, we are trying to find the quickest and most pleasant transportation mode to Besisahar which will likely be a shared car w/driver. Other than that, we are pretty much ready and excited to start our trek. Always happy to travel with more people!

    Alex 🙂

  4. Hi there,

    Have you settled on a plan yet? I’m heading to Nepal and want to trek out of Pokhara around that time but I’m on my own and so would be nice to have some company.

    I’ve walked a little in Myanmar and Vietnam too so we’ve some common-ground there.


    • Hi Alex,

      That sounds great! I am planning on doing my trek independently without a guide. If your plans change and you would like to come along with us, you are more than welcomed to! Otherwise, I’ll see you on the trail :).

    • Hi Joseph,

      My plan is to arrive in Nepal on the 14th and start my trek from Pokhara on the 17th. If you can make it for this date, you should definitey come along. I am doing it without a guide, but slightly intimidated and would love the company. Let me know if that works and we can coordinate from there.

  5. Hi Natasha,

    I am arriving in Nepal on 14th and planning to start this trek from 16-17th May ! I am by myself and would definitely love some company.

    I have prepared a rough outline of the trek:
    1. Catch a bus from Kath to Besisahar. From Besisahar, get a jeep to Chame to beat dust and heat on this part of Trek.
    2. Spend the night in Chame. And then wake up in the morning and take the trail to Upper Pisang. Absolutely stunning views!
    3. Climb back down to Manang. Stay in Manang for a night or two for acclimatization.
    4. Thorung Pass
    5. Hike down to Multinath and rest up.
    6. Hike to kagbeni
    7. After kagbeni, hike to Jomsom
    8. Take a bus from Jonsom to Pokhara. Everything AFTER the pass is windy and dusty. Not as enjoyable as the things you see before the pass.

    Let me know if it works for you ! I’ve sent my contact details on private message.

    • Hey Dikshant, just read about your trekking plan- sounds sweet! How many days do you reckon it will take you? When do u leave from where?
      All the best, Fabio and Cynthia

  6. Hi Natasha,

    I just got into Kathmandu yesterday and I too am looking for a trekking partner.

    Dates are not an issue for me as I have a 90 day visa so if you are interested in having another trekking buddy I would be delighted as I am travelling solo for the next 5-6 months.

    Give me a private message if you like.


  7. Hello Natasha!,

    I’m flying heading to Nepal on the 15th too, and looking for others doing the same route the same dates! I’m flexible with the routes and times, and even contemplating ABC towards the end of the circuit depending the weather and the state of my legs at the end XD
