Pokhara – Annapurna

Hi my names Alex.

I’m 26 from Manchester, England. I’ve just arrived in Pokhara. I’m not particularly in a rush, as I don’t leave Nepal until July 3rd, but at some point next week (week beginning 10th June) I want to do some trekking. Probably ABC or the circuit, but I don’t want to join a group and have a guide, as I’m just too tight to cough up the dollars.

If anybody else is currently in the area and has any plans to set off next week, please give me a shout as I don’t think I can handle 2 weeks trekking on my own, I’ll drive myself mad.

  1. Hey Alex,

    I’m currently volunteering in Kathmandu, and plan to take a bus to Pokhara this Wednesday. I plan on doing the ABC for at least 10 days. If you are willing to wait in Pokhara for a couple of days longer? then I would be glad to meet you in Pokhara on Wednesday.


    • Hi Alex, I’m absolutely in the same boat–just got to Pokhara, would like to trek the circuit starting sometime within the next few days, don’t want to drive myself mad alone but don’t have the $$ for guide/group. 23, female, Boulder, CO, USA. Let me know!

    • I’ve been in pokhara too long now guys so I’m leaving tomorrow morning to Besishar where I’ll begin the Annapurna circuit. If anybody wants to join me that’s cool, but I can’t wait until later in the week I’m sorry. I should have gone this morning but the storm last night and this morning put me off. Hopefully it’s not a sign of things to come! Have fun anyway!

  2. Oh, please email polarizedclouds@gmail.com if possible rather than here 🙂 thanks

    • Count me in too if there is a trek that materializes (ABC or circuit). I should be reaching Pokhara on Thursday this week
