Annapurna Base Camp Trek


I’m 35 female, living in Australia these days. I will be arriving in Nepal mid January 2018 and staying until Feb 19 (the departure date can be flexible if needed). I’m interested in doing the Annapurna Base Camp trek. Trekking dates are from January 27 onward until mid Feb 2018 (or until the trek is done). It would be great to find easy going trekking buddies 🙂 It would also be superb to do a low-budget trek 🙂 I’m fairly considerate, sociable but like my own quiet time now and then. I am considering hiring a guide for the trek but open to leaving this out. This will be my first long trek.

I’m fluent in English and Urdu (Hindi) and happy to learn new phrases from a different language(s).

Please feel free to get in touch with me if our travel dates coincide.

  4. Hi Amna,

    I am looking for like-minded trekkers for the Annapurna Base Camp Trek in late March 2018. Feel free to reply me if you plan to travel around the same period.
    Here is my plan:
    Flights Details:
    Mumbai to Kathmandu – 24th March
    Kathmandu to Mumbai – 8th April
    Total – 16 days in Nepal.
    Also, I might fly from Pokhara to Kathmandu and vice- versa.
    24th March – Kathmandu (1 Night)
    25, 26, 27 – Pokhara. (3 Nights)
    28th March, 29, 30, 31, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6th April – ABC Trek. ( 10 days )
    7th April – Kathmandu (1 Night)
    8th April 12 PM Checkout
    FYI – 31st March is a full moon day so I feel that the mountains would look better during the night.
