Nepal- undecided where specifically yet

Hey ya’ll!

I’ll be flying into Kathmandu on May 18 and staying until June 15. I haven’t solidified any plans yet, but would like to do a mix of trekking, experiencing the local culture, learning as much as I can and witnessing first hand the disaster- and the sheer adaptability of the human race after such an occurrence, that recently struck Nepal.

I’ve been leaning towards the Annapurna Circuit Trek, but like I said I’m completely open to anything! I’m on a budget, but would love to hear people’s plans for their trips and be able to join in on them.

I’ll be travelling solo, and am planning to bring my own tent, sleeping bag and water filtration system.

  1. Hi Nicole,
    I’m flying in to Nepal at the 17th and
    i had kind of the same time frame in mind. I was planning to do either the AC or just the ABC trek, but something in the Annapurna region for sure, since the regions seem either too bad affected or too expensive.
    I’m a relaxed guy with an adventurous spirit. I’m pretty flexible and very open for any ideas. I was trekking in Nepal already but I wouldn’t call myself an expert nor do I want to push things too hard since I’m also interested in the local culture. Would be great to hear from you.
    Before I forget: 32 years old (but young at heart) and German (without being the cliche pedantic German 🙂 )

  2. Hey guys,
    My wife and I planned to go in Nepal a long time before the earthquake. Since then, we tried to contact some humanitarian organisations to be volunteer. As it didn’t works, we start again to think about going there and treking, at least to help Nepal by giving work to people.
    So are you still planning to go treking this month? Is anybody knows anything about the possibility to still trek in the Anapurna?
    Thanks guys!
    Best regards

    • Hey Jean,
      We are planning on trekking the Annapurna mid May to mid June. I’ve heard the area is perfectly trekkable with minor damage to some areas. Time just released an article saying that the best way to help Nepal now is to visit on vacation and thereby support their local economy. I’d say go for it! I heard that the trails were pretty clear after the earthquake so it might be nice to experience the circuit with less foot traffic, if that’s still the case.
      Be well

  3. Hello Nicole and Group.
    I am currently in Pokhara and have been here for almost two months. I am wanting to do some or all of the APC and would like to go with a small group. I have some connections here in Nepal now as far as trekking/guides info and can give you all that I know about transportation options/ costs , lodging cost and so on ..
    As You may have seen there was another large quake that happened yesterday here in Nepal. Pokhara felt it but there was not any damage or injuries that I have heard of here.
    The Circuit right now is pretty much empty of trekkers according to some trekkers whom I spoke with just today(they were alone in the guest/tea houses the whole time).. So if your looking to do any trekking in the APCA then this is a time when there is Substantially less (little to zero) traffic at all the trails/ tea houses and services. Pokhara is like a ghost town right now compared to what it noramlly is. It could make it cheaper than normal since there are zero tourists and Many services and shops that offer the same things.
    Look forward to hearing of your plans and perhaps I can join .
    Namaste from Nepal,
    David Boueres

    • Hey David,
      It would be awesome to have another person join! We’re planning to do the AC around the 22nd or so (I fly in the 20th). It’s thrilling that we’ll be one of the few people on the trails, absolute nirvana! We’re going to be pretty flexible with plans and take our time to enjoy the trek, especially more so that it’s so vacant. We should establish a firm date and place to meet (probably the start of the trail?) so we can start this adventure. 🙂 let me know what you think!

  4. Hi, Im planning to do the ACT from 20-22nd May onwards. If you’d like to join forces, let me know.
    Ive trekked a fair bit in Nepal, have done the Everest Base Camp trek in 2011 and the Annapurna Circuit and Base Camp trek in April, 2014 so I’m familiar with the route.

    • Sweet! Sounds like you know the area pretty well, I’d love to trek with ya. Looks like we have a little group going on now! The more the merrier 🙂

  5. Hi, I’m a girl (25) from Holland, travelling alone in nepal. I arrived yesterday in pokhara and my plan is also to do the annapurna circuit trek. I’m still looking for some people to join. I don’t have experience with trekking, but in general I’m fit. Sounds great to me to do the trek in a small group. Let me know what your plans are and if I can join 🙂

  6. Hello Group,
    If you are in Pokhara and would like to get together to discuss plans, feel free to give me a call or text at 9818076412.

  7. Hi guys,
    I’m flying in to Kathmandu today (atm in Kuala Lumpur). I’m very excited to meet you all and I so much look forward to the trip 🙂

  8. Hey everyone,
    So we decided to meet up in Pokhara to get everyone in one place to meet each other! Anyone have suggestions on a place in Pokhara to gather? I imagine we’ll be making our way to pokhara around the 22nd, so it’d be sometime around then. I can’t wait to meet you guys!! 🙂

  9. Yeah sounds good! I’m looking forward to it 🙂

  10. Maya Pub and Restaurant? At 8pm the 22nd?
