Annapurna Circuit plus Annapurna Sanctuary Trek

I’m planning on combining the Annapurna Circuit and Sanctuary treks for one long and awesome trek. I’m easy going and in good shape. I’m used to hiking the Rocky Mountains in Colorado where I usually live, but I have been in Australia for the past year. SO, I’m aiming for a steady pace. I’d like to explore a few side trips throughout the trail but am extremely flexible (including the start date). I also have a pretty basic knowledge of spoken Nepali (not written). Come join me!

    • Hello Laura,

      Would you be interested to go to the Anapurna base camp trek from around the 16th of october of little bit latter? I’m leaving Pokhara tomorow to do the Anapurna circuit with a friend who is leaving Nepal after that and I’m looking for a partner to go to the base camp after that.

      I probably won’t be able to check my mail after tomorrow afternoon but please answer me anyway if you’r interested.
