Annapurna Circuit Trek


I am an Aussie who is arriving in Nepal on 26 Nov. I am planning to start the Annapurna Circuit Trek a few days later, however I am pretty flexible with dates. I will be in Nepal for a month, so anytime in that month is perfect! I would like to do it independently, however I am very flexible. Ultimately, I am just looking for people to do this trek with! 🙂

I have had some trekking experience before, and am quite easy going, whether its long days walking or shorter days…as long as I/we get to enjoy the amazing scenery along the way, I’m happy!

If you would like to join me please let me know, alternatively if you are someone who would like some one else to join you, please let me know!

Look forward to hearing from you…

  1. Hi Nick!
    I am also interested in doing the AC but won’t be able to start until early december (6th-8th). If you’re still interested, let me know!

    A fellow Aussie 🙂

    • Hi Cathy, I think that may be cutting it a little to fine for me, I’m leaving around the 22nd Dec.
      But if you change please let me know!

    • Hi Cathy,

      I plan to start my AC trek on 8/9th Dec from Pokhara/Kathmandu and end in Jomsom. Then bus/jeep to Poon hill and ABC and then heading to Pokhara. Am looking for travel partners. Have done two 5000m treks but this would be my first winter trek. Let me know further. I have posted a tentative plan as well starting 8 Dec.

  2. Hi Nick,
    Me and a friend, also Aussie, are interested in doing AC/Langtang or Manaslu, we get to Kathmandu on the 26th Nov, leaving Nepal on Dec 22. We haven’t really made any plans or decisions at the is point, but figure the more the merrier!

    If your interested/have made any plans, keep us in the loop 🙂

    • Hi Madeline,
      Those dates are almost exactly the same as mine. I am yet to make any plans or decisions, but would be interested to stay in touch!
      Let me know, nick

  3. Hi Nick, i am interested in doing this.

  4. Hi Nick,
    I am Manuel, from Spain. I arrive to Kathmandu on 27th Nov and I am also interested in doing the Annapurna Circuit trek independently.
    My plans is go from Besisahar to Jomsom, and take a plane to Pokhara.
    We can keep in touch!

  5. Hi!

    I will end my Manaslu trek in Dharapani on the 29th or 30th of November and if weather and legs allow it I want to carry on independently with the AC. I guess the dates would be perfect to join you if you will start the trail on the 27th or 28th, let me know if that will be the plan!

    • Hi Alessandro!

      I will start on 28th, so we could meet on the way. In what city do you plan to join to the AC?

      We can keep in touch!

    • Hi Manuel!

      I should be in Dharapani on the 29th or 30th of November, and I might take a free day there or nearby, not sure yet. When do you plan to be around there?

    • I will start on 28th from Besi Sahar, so I will arrive to Bagarchhap on 30th, and the next day I will trek to Chame. I am not sure what point is better for you, but the dates are more or less the same.

  6. Have you ever considered doing Manaslu Circuit which is less overrun and more authentic? I plan to leave 20th or 28th November from Kathmandu. It’ll take around 16 days and I would like to clime a small peak also.

  7. Hey Nick, I’m looking at starting in a similar time frame to you, out before christmas. How goes the planning?
    Go All Blacks!

    • Hi Jackson, I arrive to Kathmandu on 27th November, and I will like to start on 28th, if you are there on these dates we could do it together.

  8. Hi Nick

    Think were in the same boat, i arrive the 29th of November and keen to get on me way as soon as poss.

    Let me know if you don’t mind a Brit with a good nose for tea tagging along

  9. I will arrive in Kathmandu 0n the 23/11 and was thinking about doing the AC as well. Been to Basecamp once this time i wanna do the round.
    Open to do the trek with or without guides as long there are experienced mountaniers in the group.

  10. Hey Nick. I’m also going to do AC, and it could be very nice to have some company. If you’re not too many already, I really like to join you.

  11. Hey Nick. Got room for 1 more? Arriving in Kathmandu on the 22nd of November. Leaving 22nd of December. My only goal is to do the ACT as I heard it’s pretty epic 🙂
    Flexible on itinerary, budget and guide/porter situation. Let me know!
