Annapurna Circuit Trek

Very loose and open plan here, basically hoping from my research that if we obtain our TIMS card and start our trek before the 1st of April, then we won’t require a guide.
I plan on being in Pokhara from the 29/30th, anyone want to join forces on this trip.
Fyi, I’m a lighthearted individual and would probably aim to do the trek on the longer side of average as to not risk altitude sickness, especially as we won’t have a guide.

  2. Hi Laurence, hope you are well.

    I’m also interested in doing Annapurna circuit without a guide, I may be able to get to Pokhara for tomorrow (30th of March). I sent you an email explaining my situation in more detail.
