Annapurna Circuit in February

I am planning to do the Annapurna Circuit in February. This will be an independent trip (no guides/porters). I am not an experienced trekker so it will be a bit slow. I am also planning to see Tilicho Lake (hopefully) and Poon Hill. I will be in Kathmandu on the 18th of Feb.

  1. Hi… I’m also planning the same and that also without a porter or guide so that I can save up some money and also enjoy nature at ease and neither am I an experienced trekker. I would like to do the Annapurna circuit on a backpacking budget. Do reply if you are interested…

  2. Hi Sayak, I sent you a message.

  3. Hi Em, I am 23 years old, an American and just graduated from University. I have been wanting to trek in Nepal for a few years and the Annapurna Circuit looks amazing. I would love someone to go with. Have you found a small group to go with? Let me know if you need my email and we can talk about it more. 🙂

  5. Hi Em and company!
    I haven’t filled out my profile yet (just signed up five minutes ago) but I wanted to respond anyway. I am female, 27 – a lot of experience backpacking, I have been working a guide job – but its my first time to Nepal. I am planning on hiking Annapurna independent in February myself, if I can find likeminded companions! I like to take time to take it all in so I’m not super fast either. Please let me know if you are still planning/have room in your plans for another trekker.

  6. Hi everyone. I got busy with other stuff and so was not able to respond to this thread. Dana and Rebecca, when do you plan to be in Nepal? Maybe we could send e-mails to make some plans. I’ll send you my e-mail address.

  7. Hey everyone! Me and my friend, Selina, will be in Kathmandu on 13 Feb. We plan to do the Annapurna circuit preferably without guide, apparently its doable and it seems more exciting. Glad to know that you guys are planning the same. Hopefully we can work something out and have an awesome trip together! 🙂

  9. Hi,
    I will be in Nepal February 20 and plan to do the Annupurna Circuit. I too am a novice trekker and would love to go without a guide and porter. I have lots of experience in backpacking. Have u organised a group trek and can I join?

  10. Hi Em,

    Did you get any more people for your group? I’m arriving in KTM on the 15th Feb and looking for a novice group to join to Annapurna.

    Let me know

  11. Hello there,
    I’m staying in Pokhara for 2 months and I can’t wait to trek the circuit. So far, I’ve hiked the Helambu trek and went to the Annapurna Base Camp and Poon Hill, which was amazing. I have lots of experience backpacking in Canada, but I like to take my time to enjoy the scenery. My dates are pretty flexible as I’m staying in Nepal for a while. I would love to join you for this trek! Cheers !

  12. I’m from The Netherlands, 34 years old. I’ll arrive in KTM 22nd of February and would love to find people to start on the Annapurna Circuit asap after that since I have to fly back to Delhi on th 11th of March. I have done this trek and EBC before (about 5 years ago) without guide or porter just on my own, but it’s much more fun to walk with other people:-). Anyone interested?


  13. Hi there,
    I am also planning the same trek around the same time. Nothing is fixed, as I am stuck with some work. I’ll try to reach KTM by 18th. Anyone doing this trek around that time?

  14. Hi Em, when do you plan to start?

  15. Hi,
    Chiara and myself have found another person and am looking at leaving Kathmandu on 23rd. If anyone is interested in joining, message either Chiara or myself.
