Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi everyone! My name is Jemma, i’m 22 living in Australia. Currently looking to do the Annapurna circuit around November or early December my times are pretty flexible as i’ll be travelling around Nepal and Asia for three months but I’ve heard November is a great time to trek in Nepal.

So far i’m solo on my trek but would seriously love to trek in a group and meet some new people! Most likely will be departing from Kathmandu and probably looking to hire a local guide as i’ve never done a hike in Nepal before unless I meet someone who is more confident at this. Looking at around 18 – 20 days and keen to take in as much beauty/adventures as possible!

My plans are pretty loose at the moment but please give me a holla if you are looking to do the Annapurna around November/December

  1. Hey Jemma, me and my mate are going to be doing the AC arriving in Kathmandu on November 15th. We are students at University of Cape Town, South Africa and are stoked to take the trip. We could only start then due to exams, and from what I’ve read shouldn’t be a problem.

    My name is Shai, and my friend is Ryan. We’re both youngsters – first year students. I love traveling but never got to experience much of it. This is my first trek.

    If you’re keen whatsoever in meeting up or joining us for any parts you’re welcome.

    • Hi Shai, thanks for your reply! I’ve just pm’d you

  2. Hello Jemma,

    I have just posted my trip here on the platform, but I will start on October 25th in Kathmandu. Feel free to have a look into my trip.

    • Hi Bastian, thanks for your reply! Unfortunately I wouldn’t be able to start in October but I will definitely have a look at your trip for ideas!

      Thanks, Jemma

  3. Hey Jemma, I’ll be arriving in Kathmandu on the 12th of November and wanting to start tramping a few days later but no specific start date planned. I’m 22 as well and from New Zealand. Done heaps of tramping over here but have never been tramping in Nepal 🙂

    • Hey Rebecca just sent you a message!

  4. Hi Jemma, I just posted a trip, but I will be looking to start end of Nov/beginning Dec, if you are around then?

    • Hi Nick! Thanks for your message! oh awesome ill be in Nepal until end of December but hoping to do a trek at the beginning of November. If I feel like doing another trek around December ill let you know 🙂

  5. Hi Jemma!
    I’m from Australia too! I’ll be in Nepal from 9th Nov – end of Dec.
    Looking to do Everest Base Camp (~21-23 days) and/or Annapurna (perhaps both!). Definitely keen on doing it in a group + making more friends while I’m there.

    • Hi Kathy thanks for your message! Oh awesome I arrive in Nepal around the 8/9th too! Definitely looking to make friends/do some group trekking so we should meet up when we arrive! I’m keen on doing both base camp and the circuit if that is possible!

    • Hey Jemma, just sent you a message!

  6. Hi Jemma!
    I’m planning to visit Nepal this fall and am searching for a hiking tour and/of group to go hiking with in the beginning of November. Am considering the Annapurna Circuit Trek, and getting more excited about it every day.

    I might be up to join your group. Could you let me know more about the latest status of your plans?:) Greetings from Holland!

    • Hello! Yeah for sure i’ve just messaged you!

    • Oops sorry couldn’t seem to message you! Yeah i’m really excited it sounds like a really good trek from what i’ve heard. So far it seems like there are a few people starting around the 15th of November if that works around your dates?

      I’m allowing 18 or more days for the whole trek, probably staying in teahouses and trying to do it on a cheap budget. Might look into maybe hiring a guide over the higher parts as i’ve never really done hiking in high altitudes if the group is interested? Let me know what you think!

  7. Hey Jemma,

    I’ll also be in Nepal in November/December. I haven’t bought any tickets and don’t have any plans so I’m open to anything.

    I’m basically looking to either trek in Annapurna or Everest region but I’m open to others. I’m also into taking my time. I’m keen to chat more so let me know if you’re interested.

    Cheers from Canada

    • Hi Kailey!

      Just messaged you 🙂

  8. Hi Jemma, I am also looking for a trekking partner or a group for Nov. My dates are flexible also so would love to know if any of you guys have made any plans. If you or anyone else is interested let me know!

    Cheers from USA.

    • Just sent you a message!

  9. Hi Jemma, I see there is a group getting formed here, mind if I join up too? I am planning to be in Nepal from mid-November to an undetermined date (but I’d like to be back in Italy for Christmas) and Annapurna was among my first priorities. I haven’t booked any flight yet so I am definitely flexible on that side.

    I am quite a social animal so I would love to do that with a group, let me know if there is any new update!

    Cheers from Germany

    • Hey alessandro! Just sent you a message 🙂

  14. Hi Jemma,

    I’m also from Australia and was also looking at landing in Nepal around the same time as you.

    I sent you a private message, let me know what you think!


  15. Hi Jemma,

    I’m 23 for Australia as well and heading to Nepal Nov 3 – Dec 8. Very keen to do Annapurna circuit with a group of people and your trip sounds pretty similar to what I’m thinking! Would love what you’re thinking about your trip and if you have any plans!


  16. Hi all! I’l looking to start a trek early November. I arrive solo in KTM on the 31st October with very loose plans. Annapurna (new natural trails) and Mardi Himal are high on my list but I’m easily swayed if its with a nice group. Please get in touch of theres room for a silly englishman in any of your groups.

  17. Hi Jemma,
    Im from Aus (jesus there are so many of us on here) and i land in Kathmandu on 15/11 and flying out on 14/12. Im keen to do AC +- as many of the side excursions that I can (maybe even ABC). Im solo at the moment because my mate bailed on me. I’d be very keen to share part/all of my trip with a few people. I’ve flicked you a PM.

  18. Hi Jemma, are you still planning to do the AC. I will be there on Nov 12th in KTM if you want to meet up.

  19. Hi there,

    I’m in Pokhara at and looking for a partner as well. Just met some people and they said they did just find without a guide so I’m pretty sure I don’t want to take one as well.

    I’m 24 old from Israel, got plenty of time here so I don’t want to rush this trek.

    Pm me if still relevent

  20. Hello Jemmq

    Have you decided a date yet? I am actually in Pokhara and ready to make the trek. I am waiting for other people because it is more fun. I am a 26 years old French man. Do not hesitate to contact me back and may be we can meet before, or you can send me directly the departure date,

    Have a good day and see you!!
