Hi my name is Hanna! I am a 24 year old hiker/adventurer. I am still a little undecided on the exact trek I want to do. I’ve been looking more and more into trekking the Annapurna region, but would like to go into some restricted areas, which I can’t do alone! I am all for going off the beaten path and I would prefer company, as I am not sure how safe it is to trek alone as a female. I am looking for open-minded, fun-seeking individuals to walk miles with 🙂

    I was wondering if you made any plans regarding your trek? I am a 30 female adventurer too!!! I arrive in Kathmandu on around the 12th Oct and then I got about a 3weeks before I start a volunteer project over there. Was also thinking of doing the Annapurna region and like the idea of heading of the beaten track! Anyway, let me know, would be good to trek with someone. 🙂

  4. Hi ladies, I am Anna from Germany/Australia, solo traveller, planning to hike the Annapurna Circuit starting around 16th/17th of October and I would LOVE some company.

    I will be arriving in Kathmandu on Oct 15, please let me know if you would like to meet up 🙂

    • Hi Anna,

  5. Hi Dominique,
    I would love to meet up, thanks for getting in touch! I will arrive in Kathmandu on 15th Oct, need to purchase my permits and some gear, which I heard is possible in Kathmandu or Phokara. I need to do more research where it would be best to meet, but I’m guessing Phokara? How many days did you budget for the trek, are you flexible? I was thinking of doing a side trip to Poon Hill as an option, but was going to take everything one day at a time.
    Feel free to inbox me for further planning!

    • I also need to purchase some gear and permits etc. I am slightly flexible but I have to be back in Kathmandu on the 8th Nov as I am volunteering there. So, I have to start trekking from Phokara on about the 18th. Maybe, it might be easier to chat more on Facebook? My name is Dominique Swain.
      Dom 🙂

  8. Hi everybody! I am also planning to start the Annapurna Circuit on 17th October (although flexible) and I am looking for some open-minded people to share it with. I would like to travel independently (no guides) and live the trek day by day :).

    • Sounds fabulous, I have PM’d you! Very keen to get walking on the 17th, so I will need to hurry and get my permits as soon as I get to Pokara on the 16th. Researching bus times etc to Pokara now 🙂
