Annapurna Circuit Oct/early Nov 2013

Hello all!

I am planning to do the full Annapurna Circuit in early October, but am flexible on the dates and could begin as late as early November. I would like to do the circuit independently, ideally without a porter or a guide and would love to find a partner or partners to, at the very least, begin the trek with.

While I have loads of experience doing 1-3 day hikes, this will be my first trek of this length. I have completed many hikes over 35 km in 1 day, so I think I’m ready for a new challenge! I enjoy an early start to watch a great sunrise and am especially fond of curling up on the mountainside to take it all in and perhaps even doze off.

If you want to get in touch, don’t hesitate to drop me a line here or email me at

  1. Hi claire…This is my first long trek and first time in Nepal too…flight tickets booked…Reaching kathmandu on 5th oct 2013… trek dates 7-23 oct 2013.. annapurna circuit trek… write to me..

  2. Hey Claire and Alka, I will be around at about the same time. I will arrive in Kathmandu 2 oct. My first intention too, is to walk AC. But, as AC seems to be really crowded around that time, I might want to do Manaslu circuit instead (although I might have to gather a bit more information about that trek). I also prefer to walk independently, at least without porter.
    I should be back in KTM on november 1st. Lets keep in touch!

  4. I’m going to do Annapurna Circuit in ~~ 7-25 October 2013 (Besisahar – Jomsom, then flight to Pokhara). I was on Annapurna trek in 2011, but this time I want in addition to get to Lake Tilicho, it definitely worths a visit.
