Annapurna Circuit + Annapurna Base Camp trek


I’m Gururaj and I’m from India. I plan to hike the Annapurna Circuit and then follow it up with the Annapurna Base Camp trek (fitness and time permitting :p).
I land in Kathmandu on 7th October and leave for Besisahar on the 9th. My return flight from Kathmandu to Mumbai is on 1st November. Since I have time on my hands, I’ve planned to club the Annapurna Base Camp trek as well. I’ll be trekking with a Porter-cum-Guide that I’ve arranged through an agent I know of in Thamel. This is my second trip to Nepal. I hiked the Manaslu Circuit in 2014. It was a fantastic experience and I’ve been longing to go back to Nepal ever since.

Let me know if you happen to be on the trail around the same time and we could hike together.

  1. Hi Gururaj,

    My husband and I are from the UK and Indian. We are also hoping to do the Annapurna circuit departing Kathmandu tomorrow but we are yet to find our guide/porter.

    Do you have a contact for organising guides?

    We hope to see you on the circuit soon!

    • If you guys are planning to leave tomorrow, i.e. on the 9th, you can join me. Maybe we could take an extra porter for the two of you since i have a guide already. Let me know…

  2. Hi Nikita,

    I’ve organised a guide from this agency called Himalaya Expeditions (Himex). I’ve trekked with them before and they are good. You can contact them on +9779851020412.

    See you guys on the trail…
