Annapurna Circuit Trek


I’m planning on hiking the Annapurna Circuit to at least Jomsom if not further, and at starting in Besi Sahar. I’m flexible in the hiking time. My estimates make me feel it should take about 11-12 days to do this trek. I’d would like to have everyone going on the trek to discuss the itinerary or just be open to taking it one day at a time.

I will arrive in Pokhara on July 2nd and I will be ready to start hiking on the morning of July 3rd. My starting day is flexible as well, but I would like to start before the 5th at the latest.

If you have any questions or suggestions please don’t be afraid to ask.
I have thought of Mardi Himal and Manaslu as well if anybody wants to do either of those.
Upper Mustang looks great but feels a little too expensive.

  1. Hi Jared,
    I’m interested in doing this trek as well. I was hoping to cut out the last bits of the trail to get it done in 11/12 days, although I’m yet to truly look into the logistics. I’m already in Kathmandu and would be able to start earlier than the 3rd July if that would be an option for you. Otherwise I’d be interested in joinining you with your itinerary.
    Let me know if your interested,

  2. Hey Jared, I arrive Kathmandu on the 28th and am planning to do the same trek. I was hoping to leave around the 1st or 2nd of July as I plan to head back on the 17th. If our dates match, I’d love to join!

  3. The earliest I can start hiking is July 3rd. When I say this I mean I arrive in KTM on July 1st, on the 2nd I will take a bus to Pokhara to get my permits and on the 3rd I would take a bus to the trailhead. There is another group I am talking to as well that plans to start the 3rd. They are about 5 people strong right now.
