      Where should I go between my flights to Paro from Kathmandu?

      Kathmandu Mar 31, 2014 at 3:51 AM

      I will be going to Paro in end April. My flight is from Hong Kong arriving to Kathmandu at 22:00, but then my next flight to Paro is the next day at 0925. It's approx 10 hours in between so I hesitate to book a hotel just for that, as well to pay the Nepal visa just for few hours.
      Would that be safe to stay in the airport overnight? Or I have the access to get in to the Kathmandu airport lounge, would they be opened until the next morning?

    • are there many mosquitoes near Lake Phewa in April in Nepal?

      if so, are they malarial? are there less mosquitoes in the town or near the lake, as we are considering a hotel near the lake.

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

      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.

      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?

      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.

      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

      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!!
