Annapurna Base Camp Trek


I am planning a trip to Nepal from end of October, for 10-12 days. I do not have any exact dates, but I am thinking to start around 25.10.

I am looking at Annapurna Circuit Trek or Annapurna Base Camp trek, leaning more towards ABC. But if someone has other suggestion, maybe both together, just write it down. I would love to hear them.

I plan to hike independently, with other trekking enthusiasts, small group max 4 persons. I am physically fit: running, hiking or MTB -> 5 times a week.

If you are interested you can join me, I am really excited about this trip!

  1. Hi Uros,

    I am Reaching Kathmandu on 20th October 2018 for The ABC trek and shall start from Pokhara on 21st n complete it within 3rd or 4 th november. I will be doing Mardi himal or Khopra danda & khaiyer lake trek with it. I am an Indian trekker and have previously done EBC and Annapurna Circuit Trek in Nepal.
    We can join for this trek.

    • Hello Sunil.

      Thank you for your reply. I am sorry, but due to the nature of my work 21 October is too early for me. October 25th is earliest I can reach Kathmandu. Have a nice trek and maybe we meet each other.


    • Hi uros, My dates have changed now to start from pokhra on 9th November. Shall be doing ABC and Mardi himal within 21st.

  2. Hey Uros,
    I’m also planing on doing the Annapurna Circuit. I’ve already booked my flight tickets to Kathmandu and will arrive there on Oct. 26th. The plan is to get all the permits, to run the last errands and to start the trek the following day.
    I also would like to trek independently and go without a guide.
    Maybe we can join each other! 🙂


  3. Hey Isa,

    yes, Oct. 26th suits me. I will check flights to Kathmandu and will notify you asap.


  4. Great! Looking forward to hear from you!

  5. Hi Uros, Isa!
    I will also arrive in Kathmandu Oct. 26th and might do Annapurna. I might also do a less popular trek instead in which case a guide and a group (more than 1 person) is mandatory. Are your plans already set, or would you be open for a different trek? Manaslu maybe?

  6. Hi guys, I’m also thinking about doing the Annapurna trek somewhere around end of October. Would be nice if we can get a small group together. Have you already bought your tickets?

  7. Hi all,

    Myself and my boyfriend George would be keen to join you guys for the Annapurna Circuit. We’re travelling around Asia for a year (currently in Sri Lanka) and will be finishing in Nepal, arriving around 18th October and are due to fly out on the 16th of November.

    Let us know 🙂

    Best wishes
    Fie and George

  8. Hi Uros, my initial plan is to arrive Ktm on Sat 27/10 afternoon and leave to Pokh on 28/10 but i read that d office is closed on Sat to do d permit and Tim. Might consider to arrive on Fri 26/10 and if i managed to get permit n Tim on same day, will leave to Pokh on 27/10 then. Have u decided to do which one, Abc or A circuit?

  9. I everyone, just discovered this website. Arriving on the 26th in Katmandou and want to do the Annapurna Circuit trek as well 🙂 I m by myself, so I would be happy to join a group ! Have you already set up everything ? Are you full ? Can I maybe join ?

  11. Hey guys,

    Just found this website and am super excited there are others looking to trek this as well. I will be arriving in Kathmandu on Oct 24th, and have to be back in Kathmandu by Nov. 1st. I am looking to trek Annapurna Base Camp independently. I have tons of backpacking experience, but would love to share the adventure with others. I’m just looking to explore as much of that area as possible in the time I have, so would be interested in sharing just part of a trek with you guys if 7 days is too short. I have read Annapurna Base Camp can be done in 7 days as well as Poon Hill. I’d be interested in either.

  12. Hey guys!! How are you? I’m Maria, from Spain.
    I arrive to Pokhara on 28th october and I would like to do Annapurna Circuit Trekking from Behisahar to Jomsom….and maybe after it (if I have more energy….) Annapurna Base Camp from Pedhi to Nayapul…. I would like to do it by myself, without guide
    Could I join me to you? or…. Does Anybody want to join me?
    I’ll try to process the permit for trekking on 28th in the afternoon or if it’s no possible I’ll do it on 29th in the morning
