Annapurna Circuit Trek

My name is Stephanie and i am from Australia. I am planning to fly into Kathmandu of the 7th of November and begin the trek around the 10th/11th. My flights are booked but my treking dates are reasonably flexible. I plan to enjoy this trek at a comfortable pace, not to smash it out too quickly and only remember the exhaustion. I plan to do a few side trips to help acclimatise and decrease the chance of altitude sickness. I have plenty of treking experience but this will be my first trek at high altitude. Not looking to hire a porter/guide but would love some like minded, easy going people to admire the beauty of the Himalayas with ☺

  1. Hello Stephanie, I’m Ewa from Poland. I’m 26. I’m arriving to Kathamandu on the 7th, 8th I’m going to buy permits, 9th I’m leaving Kathamdnu to Besisahar or next village. I want to start the trek around the 10th. I don’t have time for whole circuit-I want to finish in Jomsom -take a bus from Jomsom to Pokhara, and I have to come back Kathmandu (My boyfriend is flying into Kathmandu on 22th ). I haven’t been to Nepal yet, I have some experience on trek in Poland, including winter treks. I don’t want to hire a porter and guide too. I hope 10-12 days to Thorung La should be enough, and after that 1-2 days to Jomsom, (My friends did the circuit, and said it’s enough, but we will see ) Hope to see you on the trail:) Let me know what do you plan. Greetings !

    Please share your itinerary so we can discuss about it

    We can start from Syanje as it will save 2 days of trekking and we can do detour to Tilicho lake

    I also wish to trek independently but open to other ideas too

  4. Hi all!
    I arrive to Kathmandu on 9th November in the evening – and want to start the AC during the weekend (10th or 11th November). I’m now figuring out what the right plan re. the permits is.

    I’m an active person – and best/biggest trekking experience so far has been Camino Santiago which I did last year.

    Would be great to connect with those of you starting around the same date!

    Looking forward,

  5. Hey Stephanie. I’m looking to start the trek about the 11th. I’ve got a month in Nepal and am happy to take the time to acclimatize and do some side treks. 38 year old Aussie . Tim

    • Hi Tim, im looking for some travelbuddies as well and I’m wondering if you’re planning to start the circruit from Pokhara.

  6. Hi all!
    I’m arriving to Kathmandu on Friday (9th November) in the evening, will someone be around to meet up for a coffee/beer, to discuss itineraries as well – and perhaps some of us will want to combine the plans too?

  7. Hi Stefanie! Sounds good to me! Do you already know if you start the hike from Kathmandu either Pokhara?

    • Hi Marlon, Ewa and i are leaving early tomorrow morning from Kathmandu to Besisahar.
