Annapurna Circuit Trek

I am planning on starting the AC trek around the 6th of October catching a bus from Pokhara to Besisahar and possibly a jeep a bit further depending on the weather conditions.
I have as much time as it tales but planning between 10-14 days.
Not looking to hire a guide or porter but would love to find some like-minded trekkers to share the trip with.
My trekking experience is not the biggest (never more than 2-3 days in a row), but I can’t wait to get going anyway.
Let me know, if any of you are planning something similar. I would like to meet up some days beforehand to get to know each other a little bit 🙂

  1. Hi Karoline,

    I’m wanting to start this trek around the same time as you (maybe one or two days later as I’m currently still in London)! We also seem to have similar trekking experience (I’m very keen but not very experienced).

    I’m also considering doing a slightly longer trek. Would this be something you’re interested in? Annapurna can be combined with Manaslu, and it looks amazing.

    A bit about me: I’m a 26 year old high school teacher from England. I’m moving to Paris in January and decided to take a few months off before the move. Am doing my Yoga Teacher Training in India in November, and wanting to trek for about month before this starts.

    Hope to hear back from you soon!


    • Hello Ruby!
      Unfortunately I am sticking with only AC, as I am planning on doing the EBC after some resting time in Kathmandu.
      Let me know, if you could be interested anyway

  2. Hi Christine, are you already in Kathmandu or Pokhara? I would like to hike the annanpurna circuit around that dates, would be great to meet before and see if it fits. My hiking experience is probably like yours and I would like to go relaxed 🙂
