Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi everybody! I’m Chiara, 25 years old from Italy.
I was planning to do the Annapurna Circuit around mid of May. I’m currently travelling in Vietnam and Myanmar and planning to arrive in Nepal around the 10th of May, but I’m a little bit flexible with dates.
This will be my first time in Nepal, but I come from the Dolomites in Italy so I’m used to mountain treks. I defintely want to enjoy every step of this trekking, getting through the local culture as much as possible. So people with slow-mid pace and will to share the trip together, that’s what i’m looking for!
I was also thinking about going to Tilicho Lake, but I’m open to define plans together 🙂

  2. Hi Chiara and Alex! I’m João, 21 from Brazil.

    It seems that we have similar plans! I was planning on doing the Circuit in the second half of May as well and having a group makes it safe and pleasant to trek independently. While I have some trekking in Peru and Brazil, the slow-mid pace works great for me. And I would also happily take the side trek to Tilicho Lake, it looks beautiful there.

    I’ll be arriving in Nepal on the 14th and I’ll probably try to go as quickly as possible to the Annapurna Region not to miss the last days before monsoon season starts picking up. Would these dates work for you?

    Hope to see you both on the trail!
