Annapurna Circuit Trek

I’ll be in Nepal from 4-29 November.

Initially I was interested in the Upper Mustang trek but it’s a little over my budget so I’m planning to trek the Annapurna circuit independently – I like to allow for delays, acclimatisation days and maybe side trips as I’m not sure what to expect. You never know if there will be snow!

I’m creative (photographer/designer) and like a bit of adventure and think that’s something what would be nice in a trekking partner, but pretty open! Let’s meet up in Kathmandu 🙂

  1. Make sure you have a good sleeping bag as first snow has arrived in Jomson. Temp at high camp will be about -12 c. Also get weather forcast in Manang for the pass.
