Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi, I’m Fiona.

I am a Canadian, solo female traveler, 36 yrs, in decent shape and wanting to do the Annapurna circuit, or most of it. I arrive in Kathmandu Oct 12 afternoon, so I plan to catch a bus Oct 14 early morning to Besi sahar or Bhulebule. I need to be back in Kathmandu Oct 31. I might end my trek in Jomsom and bus back, depends on my pace.

I did Gokyo Ri in Everest Region in 2014 as a 28 day trek from Shivalaya, and it was amazing. Did that with a porter/guide bc it was my first time, but I think with a group of a few people, we could figure it out without a guide. Also open to splitting cost of a guide if we want the security of a guide for the high altitude pass.

I’m pretty low key, and might even want to change up my pace for a bit of solo time, also bc I am dealing with some knee rehab, but as a smart, female traveler, I know it’s best to know a few other folks heading out at the start.

  1. Hi Fiona, I am Constantin, 50,from Romania. I would like to do also some trekking in the Annapurna region. I can leave Ktm on October 17. I arrive today in Ktm, but I will attend a course at Kopan monastery, afterwards I am ready for trekking. If interested let me know. Regards, Constantin

  2. Hi Constantin, I’m giving myself 16-18 days on the trail, so my departure from Kathmandu is firm for Oct 14 morning.

    All the best!
