EBC + Annapurna Circuit

my name is Isabell (29) and I’m from Germany. From middle of March I am going to travel through Asia. My first Stop will be Nepal, Kathmandu.
I’m looking forward to trek EBC and Annapurna Circuit. I will arrive in Kathmandu at 13rd of March and would like to start to trek around 17th. I haven’t still decided which trek I want to do first. I don’t want to join an organised tour, would rather hire a guide when I arrive. Carrying my own gear and any sort of standard of accommodation is fine for me.
I’m experienced in trekking in the Alps and Indonesia. I want to enjoy the views, culture, local people and villages – I’m not in a hurry and not a super fast walker.

  1. Hello,
    I’m looking for someone to join me on the Nar phu valley trek, it lays between Annapurna and Manaslu and is less touristic. while I’ve read it is a challenging trek, I want to take it easy and take time to acclimatise, watch animals, and enjoy the landscape when possible. I would like to make my trek starting around the 19th of march, but I’m quite flexible.
    Would you like to join me?

  2. Hey Isabell,

    I’m interested in doing the 3 Summits Trail (which includes EBC) which I believe is around 14 days on average. For this one, I would probably get an independent guide, but I’m looking for someone to share the cost with. A friend of mine, who just completed EBC, gave me contact info of an independent guide that she highly recommended.
    I’m also interested in Annapurna, though I do not think I would get a guide for this one.
    Let me know if you’re interested and we can meet up to chat when you are in Kathmandu.

    • Hey Audrey! Sounds great! A Guide for EBC is fine for me. We can share the costs. I also think Annapurna is fine without a Guide. Which one of the Treks do you want to do first? For me both are fine. I will arrive 13rd of March (Tomorrow Afternoon) in Kathmandu. If you want we can meet tomorrow evening or an 14th during the day.

  3. Hey Helena,
    I will arrive on 13rd of March. If you want we can meet in the evening for dinner and discuss the trekking 🙂

    • Hi Isabell,
      I’m afraid I can’t make it to Kathmandu right now, besides I would like to start trekking around the 19th, so I don’t think our trekking times match.
      I hope you can find someone to join you anyway

  4. Hi Isabel,

    I want to do the Everest base camp around the same time as you. I arrived in Kathmandu yesterday. I dont realy want to do the trekking with a big group, But going alone is not a option. Maybe we can meet up?

    • Hey Marjoleine,

      I will arrive today in the afternoon. If you want we can meet tonight for Dinner or tomorrow during the day.
      I also don‘t want to trekk in a big Group 🙂
