Join us and other like-minded adventurers from 29 April – 11 May 2023 as we head off to hike the Annapurna Circuit Trek in Nepal!
Annapurna Circuit Trek
You might have heard of the Everest Base Camp trek, and while it’s an iconic one to strike off your bucket list, this is also a notoriously crowded one (a lot more expensive to boot).
So we searched for a way to experience the epic mountains of Nepal but at a lower altitude and hopefully cheaper price point — the Annapurna Circuit happens to be the perfect alternative!
The Annapurna mountain range is BREATHTAKING (not just because of the altitude). It consists of 13 peaks that are over 7,000m with the highest one being Annapurna I at 8,091m.
Join us on your next expedition
If you’re looking for hiking buddies, here’s the perfect chance!
On this expedition, leave the planning to us! All you gotta do is clear your schedule (29 April – 11 May 2023), book your flights, and be prepared for a lot of fun!
BONUS: You’ll be travelling with The Travel Intern Content Experts who will act as your personal photographers. Feel free to ask for advice on framing your shots and receive beautifully edited photos and a special trip video at the end of the trip to remember the breathtaking moments. We’ll also hold an optional photography and editing workshop exclusively for participants so you have the basics down before the trip.
Itinerary (14 days, 13 nights)
Arrive in Kathmandu — meet up with your new travel pals and explore the city. Do some last-minute shopping for essential gear and rest early before the start of the expedition!
The expedition begins with a 6.5-hour drive to the trek’s starting point.
On most days, it will be a manageable 5-6 hour trek with ample breaks in between. Some days we might be hiking up to 8-10 hours but there will 10 days to acclimatise to the highest point of 5,416m. Get ready for a visual treat as we pass through valleys flanked by stunning snow-capped mountains. Temperatures are expected to range from 17 to -5°C during this time of the year.
After an epic 9-day hike through the mountains, we take a jeep down to Pokhara — back to civilisation and a nice warm shower!
Apart from hiking, Pokhara is where you can check out other exciting outdoor activities like bungy jumping, whitewater rafting, ziplining, and paragliding (amongst many other options). Just let us know what you’re interested in and we’ll have them organised for you! If you’d prefer to chill post-hike, there are also lots of cafes and shops to explore before catching our flight home.

Qn: How is this trip different than going on my own?
Trips to exotic destinations are more fun with a big group! But not everyone has friends that are willing to jump onto an adventure at a moments notice! We planned this trip so that you can meet other fellow adventurers, people different walks of life that are equally as passionate about travel!
With the local expertise of our travel partner, we’ll get an intimate taste of our surprise destination’s culture, especially the authentic, rugged experiences that most tourists don’t have access to.
What’s more, our Travel Intern Content Experts will be on the ground as your personal photographers. We’ll be producing a trip video and edited photos for you to remember all the epic moments. Aspiring photographers can also attend our pre-trip photography workshop specially for trip participants, and we’ll guide you in taking and editing photos during the trip itself!
Qn: Are flights included in my trip?
International flight to and fro are not included in the cost of this trip! We believe in giving travellers the ability to determine how long they’d like to travel for and where they’d want to travel from, so flights can be booked independently.
Qn: Who is this trip suitable for?
If you’re adventurous, open-minded, and excited to immerse in a new culture, this is the trip for you!
You should also be ready to embrace the great outdoors. Though we will have comfy hotels and Western-style toilets in town, restroom and shower facilities during the trek will be a little more basic.
Qn: Is this trip open to all nationalities?
All nationalities are welcome to join.
Let us know where you’re from during the application! If you need a visa, we’ll help you out with the info required for the application.
Qn: Who will be on the trip?
We’re looking for 8 fun-loving travelers who’d love to explore together! Whether you’re a solo traveler or want to tag along with some friends, you’re in for a great time. Rounding off the team are our Travel Intern Content Experts, local expedition guide and porters
Qn: How safe is this trip?
We will take the following precautions for a smooth and safe trip:
- Travelling in a big group of at least 8 people
- A local guide will accompany us at all times, with firsthand knowledge of the areas
- Travelling in a private all-terrain vehicle with a local, experienced driver
Qn: Do I need a certain level of fitness?
Not really, this is a moderately easy trip that’s suitable for all ages! However, there will be long hours of hiking and we’ll be getting to a fairly high altitude of around 5,500m at some point in the trek so having a general level of fitness will be more enjoyable.
We’ll be hosting an optional training programme starting one month before the start of the expedition to ensure a base fitness level for all participants!
Qn: What should I pack?
Upon confirmation, we’ll be providing a detailed packing list specifically for this trip.
Qn: Do I need to bring any cash along?
Yes, you do! There are two R&R days of the trip for you guys to book optional extreme sports activities!
Activities available are paragliding, bungy jumping, white water rafting, mountain biking, zipline course and canoeing!
Qn: What will accommodation be like during the trip?
We’ll get to try different types of accommodation in, each promising a unique experience. In town, we’ll be staying in hotels, while on the trek, we’ll be in a mix of guesthouses and teahouses.
If you’ve got any accommodation requests, let us know and we’ll see what we can do. 🙂
