Annapurna Circuit Trek in March 2017

Hello world!

I’m trekking Annapurna Circuit in March 2017 and would love to find someone to share the experience with. I think it’s smart not go alone, for safety and for fun. A small group would do, too.

I’ll arrive in Kathmandu on March 7th and hope to start the AC a couple of days after that. I’ve got a month to spend in Nepal and don’t want to rush it. I’m planning to walk all the way, around 14-16 days, but also want to stay flexible and change the plan should I feel like it. Would also like to do some of the side trips.

I won’t hire a guide or a porter but will sleep and buy food from the local tea houses. I’ve read a lot about the AC online and also bought the updated guidebook (Trekking the Annapurna Circuit including new NATT-trails which avoid the road) to bring along.

Something about me. I’m 31 years old and live in Helsinki, Finland. I love outdoors, especially rock climbing, hiking, kayaking and cycling. I’ve been working in communications for the past 5 years and will hopefully start a one-year wilderness guide training next fall.

Sounds good? Great!

Please reply and tell a little bit about yourself and your plans and wishes regarding the AC. Then let’s connect on Facebook for easier communication. Btw, would be great to meet up in Kathmandu and travel together to Pokhara or Besishar.

Yours, Liisa
