Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi fellow travellers,

I am from Germany, 34 years old, reasonably fit and I have done some trekking tours before in the Alpes for a week or so and plan to do the Annapurna Circuit in April/May. I have around 15 days for trekking.
I plan to arrive in Kathmandu on the 12th of April, then get the permits, taking the bus to Besi Sahar on the 15th or 16th. I would like to take a couple of side treks or deviations to avoid the traffic on the main road.
I would prefer to go without guide but I am open to discuss that and I won´t need a porter.

Drop me a line if you are interested in joining me,

  1. Hallo Tamara,

    Ich plane den Annapurna circuit ebenfalls in deinem Zeitraum von Besi Sahar zu starten. Generell stimmen deine Angaben mit meiner Planung überein. Ich nehme bis zum 12.04. in Katmahndu an einem Mediationskurs Teil. Ab dem 12. wollte ich dann alles organisieren um am 15./16. zu starten. Ich bin 26. Jahre alt und bin zuletzt in der sächsischen Schweiz und in Neuseeland gewandert. Ich beforzuge aber auch ein gemäßigtes Tempo. Also falls du Lust hast den Trip zusammen zu machen gib mir Bescheid! 🙂

  2. Hey! I’m 30 from the USA. I’m arriving in Kathmandu on April 13th and was hoping to start trekking around the 16th as well. I do not plan to get a porter, but I think I do want to get a guide, if you’re open to sharing that cost. I’ve done a reasonable amount of trekking in North and South America. Are you still looking for partners?

    • Hey Annie,

      Andrea from the US here. I’m flying in the same day. I’d like to maybe get a porter/guide hybrid. Looking to do the trek in 14-16days. Let me know if you would be interested in combining forces.

  3. Hi all – I’d be interested in joining too. I’m in Japan right now and heading to Nepal via very short visits to Taiwan and Korea. I’ll arrive mid-April as well.

    I’m an experienced walker and we have the luxury of the tea houses to make it really a lot easier. When I land on the airplane, I just would need to do basic arrival stuff and then am ready to go – I don’t need to go shop for a bunch of gear.

    • Oh, I’m also a 30-something. 😉

  4. Hey all…I’d like to do the Annapurna circuit trek around the same time as you guys. I’m currently in Kathmandu. I’m 33, from the U.K., by the way 🙂

  5. Hey all, I’m gonna make a Whatsapp group to talk about the trek and organise ourselves. So far we think we will start on 15/16th April. If you wanna be in the Whatsapp group message me your number 🙂

  6. I’d like to join the whatsapp group and possibly your group for the trek, I also wrote you my number Katy, but maybe someone else sees this earlier and can invite me?

  7. Hey Tamara. 🙂 Ich komme heute Abend um 11 Uhr in Kathmandu an und wollte dann gerne direkt den Annapurna Trek startet und suche noch jemand mit dem man zusammen trekken gehen könnte. Oder auch eine Gruppe klingt nach viel Spaß! Ich würde mich suoer freuen wenn ich euch begleiten könnte! Freue mich auf eine Rückmeldung und hoffentlich sieht man sich die Tage! 🙂

  8. Ah sorry vielleicht gebe ich dir auch einfach mal meine Nummer: +49 177 7388634. 🙂
