Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hello fellow trekkers! My name is Tom, I am a 26 year old Aussie currently in the midst of a gap year from my career. I have just impulsively booked a flight to Kathmandu arriving on the 9th of December and would love to meet up with some other people if possible.

I am planning on departing Kathmandu for Besisaher on the 11th of December and doing a shorter version of the full circuit, hopefully ending in Jomosom on the 20th or 21st and flying to Pohkara from there so I can make it back home for Christmas.

I would prefer not to hire a guide and do the trek independently, but for safety reasons would definitely prefer to trek with someone else. If anyone’s doing the trek around the same time please feel free to reach out. I am fairly new to trekking and in average shape right now so I am not looking to power hike, but will happily speed up or slow down depending others.

I have not decided on the exact itinerary yet so I am fairly flexible on the “in between” dates and accommodation, but I don’t think I can start any earlier than the 11th from KTM, and the latest I would like to depart from Jomosom is the 22nd.

Happy Trekking!
Cheers, Tom
