Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi there,

I’m a 24 yr old girl from Canada currently working for an NGO in Ahmedabad, India. After my contract finishes I’m traveling a bit in Kerala and then flying to Nepal to hike the annapurna in August. I realize it’s not peak season but I have no flexibility with the time of year as I have to return home for my master’s at the end of that month. I’m new to trekking but I’m a runner and regularly run halfs so I think I can manage a moderate pace. Not sure if that’s a reasonable assumption. I’m giving myself about 3 weeks to do the trail factoring in some days in case of AMS.

I’m looking for a partner or a group to join!

  1. Hi,

    I am in Nepal in July and August. My friends in Nepal do not recommend walking AC in monsoon period. Instead I want to walk upper mustang trek. This is a more expensive trip but then you are sure that you have better views and less rain. If you are interested please let me know.

    Kind regards,


  2. I’m looking to do the same trip at this time, after finishing a placement in a hospital in Nepal. I would like to do the trek without the use of guides/porters, and my only time constraint is my flight back to the UK on the 29th Aug.
