Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi there!

I am planning on doing the Annapurna Circuit Trek including Tilicho Ice lake. Arriving in Kathmandu the 6th of September and hoping to start walking the day after or two days after (7 or 8 september). I have done two trekkings in Nepal already (Annapurna Circuit, EBC over the cho la pass and Gokyo lakes). I am planning on doing the trek without a guide and porter. Please send me a message if you would like to join!

A little bit about me: I am 30 years old, turning 31 during the trek :). Love to hike and to be up in the mountains. I am easy going, i like my quiet time but also enjoy the company of other trekkers!
Hope to hear from you.

Rebecca

  1. Hey Rebecca,

    I have not been to Nepal yet but I am currently in Japan with tentative plans to land in Kathmandu (I have not booked my flight just yet but I’m close to!) I might be interested in joining you for the Annapurna trek 🙂

    About me: I’m a 25 year old web developer from New York City who just started a long term solo travel journey (I’m currently working on an organic farm in Japan). I’m definitely social but enjoy my quiet time as well. I’m a yoga teacher as well! I’ve never hiked this high altitude but I have hiked extensively through the White Mountains in New Hampshire and wherever I go traveling!

  2. Hey you!

    Im a 24 year old german/kurdish female solo traveller and would love to join a little group for trekking the Annapruna circuit. How far are your plans yet It will be my first trek in Nepal but i´ve been trekking in the Pyrnees a couple of times already and had a little trek in the north of india.

    About me: Im a medicine student from wuerzburg in my last year, im always in for some good talks and laughs but I also love to enjoy silence sometimes. I love to travel around whenever i have some free time and money and as the end of my studies are coming closer I chose Nepal for my next adventure.
    Would love to hear from you!

  3. Hello,

    What a way to celebrate your birthday!

    I booked Nepal a week ago and arrive in KTM on Monday. I will make firm plans when I arrive.

    I know I want to trek. It is v difficult to do as a solo activity, hence the email

    If you’d like to chat then please email me on dshadbolt@gmail.com and we can meet up in KTM early next week.

    What are your thoughts? Thank you.

  4. Hi Rebecca,

    Your plan is pretty much what I had planned. I am very excited about the hikes out of Manang. However, the weather forecast shows in might rain a bunch. I am not made of sugar, but it sure ruins the views. I will be in Pokhara starting on 9/4 and will be there for a few days. Would you consider a side trip to Mustang? I did not do it last time and always regretted it. Plus it is in a rain shadow and it will let the monsoon progress before continuing on AC.
    Oh yeah, about me. I’m a retired ultrarunner but still move well on trails. I have hiked all over the US, East Africa, and the AC 10 years ago. I’m funny, informed on many topics, and the trail is my church. I’m good with altitude and I never whine 🙂

    Let me know.
    Happy Trails, Joe

    • Hi Joe,

      Nice to hear from you! I would love to do a side trip around the Mustang area! The only thing is you can only go up to gakbani without a guide and permit (of 500 dollars for 10 days). If you walk the Annapurna circuit this is party of the last few days of the trek. Do want to go up to Jomson from Pokhrara and then Gagkbeni and then after that take the bus to the start of the Annapurna? Or do you have another plan? Let me know!

  5. Hello Rebecca and everyone,

    I plan some trekking too, Annapurna is one of the options, but looking for trekking company. Date is flexible for me a bit, if anyone want me to join, feel free to contact on whatsapp +36203703889. About the trek I plan to do it very cheap, camping most of nights (I have tent for 2) and cooking my food till I have gas. On bad days teahouses. I was on high altitude before but not for a long trek, however I am optimistic. I am 29, geographer and web-developer, roaming the world.

    Cheers,
    Renato

  6. Dear Renato,

    Sounds like an adventure your plan. For me it is a little too basic though, doing the Annapurna camping and providing my own food :). Have a good time and maybe see you along the trek!
