      Nar Phu Valley Trek

      Nepal Nov 29, 2014 at 9:30 AM

      I'm heading to Nepal in a couple of weeks and have planned to do a 25 day trek which includes Nar Phu Valley and Tilicho Lake. I have read some posts which say that the tea houses close at Nar & Phu during the Winter. Can anyone verify this? We would be in that area around Christmas. How can I get updates on the condition of the passes and monitor the weather / snow conditions before we arrive. Although we are bringing some camping equipment with us, I was of the understanding that we would be staying in tea houses from the trekking company.

      Appreciate to hear from anyone who has trekked through the area in December / January.

      Thanks

    • How many Gas canisters?

      Mount Everest Dec 4, 2014 at 2:03 AM

      Hi Everyone

      I'm currently researching rubbish on mount Everest for a University project.
      One of the biggest contributors to the rubbish is gas canisters.

      Out of experience how many canisters would an individual take up Everest with sufficient gas to cook all their meals?
      The same for base camp if anyone has any experience of the trip.

      Would be great if anyone can help or if anyone can direct me to an answer elsewhere.

      Thanks

    • Find Best Trekking Agency in Nepal

      by alexlevy Online Now Feb 19, 2014 at 11:05 PM

      Hi,
      I wanna trek to Annapurna Base Camp and I am wondering about how to find the best trekking agency in Nepal which offers the very best service for the trekkers. I have never been to Nepal and I wanted to be sure that I am done with all the info about the agencies before I land there. Is there any way that I can find and compare trekking agencies so that I can find the best one. That would be very helpful for me.

      Cheers,
      Levy

      How do I get a hiking permit in order to hike up the Annapurna Circuit?

      by Nitrogue Online Now Nov 19, 2013 at 12:03 AM

      Hi guys,

      Just curious. Do I need to get a hiking permit from my country (Malaysia) or do I get it in Nepal itself in order to hike up to the Annapurna Circuit? And what is the procedure like along with the fee?

      Annapurna Sanctuary February 2013

      by PhilipE5 Online Now Dec 22, 2012 at 6:23 AM

      Hello. I am hoping to do the Annapurna Sanctuary in mid Februay with my wife. We are both about 50, reasonably fit, and set aside 11 days. We plan to hire a porter in Pokhara.

      Is this trek acheivable? Any recommendations for quality but affordable accommodation in Pokhara? And a porter outfit to hire from?

      Thanks

    • Choices for Annapurna Circuit trekking company Oct 2009

      by wsupam Online Now Oct 15, 2008 at 11:32 PM

      Hi, we are planning to go on the Annapurna Circuit next fall. I am overwhelmed by the number of companies available. We want to stick with a local company and take our time. Any experiences with Mountain Monarch, Above the Himalaya or Responsible Adventurer trekking comapanies. Or, any great recommendations?? This is our first trek so want to go with a small group to meet people.

      Thanks,

Also please can anyone advise me what to wear,will i need a very warm sleeping bag at this time of year and how warm or light or waterproof should my clothing be??Thanks

      Greeting folks

      I am a newbie to any hiking in the Anna purna region but am not a newbie to hiking or to India. i right now live in the SF bay area. My dream is to do the Annapurna circuit sometime this coming year-2006 (and I have been saving all my vacation time to this end). I don't have any hiking partners so anyone with suggestions where i can get in touch with people with the same goal. I am finding ti hard to figure out some kind of plan here by myself and have ended up spending more time on my computer than off !

      Iam open to other possible hikes in the himalaya also, as long as they are not over commercial or over organized.

      Pls help

      Thanks

      Annapurna circuit in 16 days?

      by jackfruit Online Now Feb 10, 2004 at 12:35 PM

      Since we dont have 22 days but would like to do most of the Annapurna circuit (Oct/Nov of this year), would it be possible to do the following: Kathmandu - Besisahar by bus (day 1) Besisahar - Ghorepani (15 days) And on day 16, go to Pokara to end the hike, instead of doing the additional 8 day Annapurna sanctuary? Has anyone done this? I need some feedback on this -how is the view of the Annpurna range if one doesnt do the sanctuary part of the hike? Thanks much for any help!!
