Annapurna Circuit

Hi there,

Im a 33 year old Italian girl living in Scotland and I’ll be walking the Annapurna Circuit at the end of October. I should arrive in Kathmandu on the 19 October, and everything going right I should be able to start the hike, or get to Besi Sahar on 21 October.

I’m more of a runner and cyclist than a hiker,but Nepal has been my dream since many years and I really can’t wait to get started. I’m reasonably fit but I’m not planning on rushing, just really want to enjoy the mountains.

I haven’t planned anything yet, but I don’t think I’ll hire any porter as I’m used to carry my stuff, and will probably stay in teahouses. It would be nice to share pains and laughts with some other trekker, even if for only a few sections, so that if you are there around in the same period please get in touch

  1. Hi Elena!

    I’m on very much the same plan as you. I’d love to meet up… I’m 35, American, and have had Nepal on the list for many years as well. Our paces/goals sound very similar. I land in KTM on 10/17 so was thinking of a 21 October start date also.


    • Hey Dara,

      That would be great! I’ll leave Kathmandu on the 21st morning, so that if you are there on the 20 we could maybe meet up? I tried to send you a private message with more details and my number but I’m new to this site and can’t figure out what to enter at dara@????

      Can you please send me a message maybe with your email so tht it’ll be easier to arrange stuff?
