Are you visiting Nepal in October and wanting to hike some of the Annapurna circuit?
I'm Chris and am looking for a hiking companion/s for Nepal. I arrive in Kathmandu on October 10th and depart November 1st to Varanasi in India.
I hope to spend 2 - 3 weeks hiking the Annapurna circuit and I'm learning that if fit and healthy, a guide/porter isn't necessary (but I'm open to other people's preferences). I've got some good maps and am used to roughing-it and will bring the equipment to do so, but will happily adapt for those who need a little more comfort.
I'm a 30 years old English guy and just about to finish studying a Masters in Renewable Energy in England. I've lived in Australia for the past 3 years and return there at the end of this year.
I've done a lot of independently travel in the past 14 years and am a regular hiker. Some of my longer trips include Everest Base camp trail, parts of the Peruvian Andes, lots of mainland Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand.
I'm a pretty organised person and get up early when I can to make the most of my day.
I volunteered with Engineers without Borders in Australia and hope to visit at least the Kathmandu project while in the country.
Any interest in joining me, send me a 'hello'.
