      Nepal and Trekking lite

      Nepal Jul 17, 2014 at 4:12 AM

      We (wife and I) are in the middle of doing some travel planning into Southern Asia this fall. While we are well travelled, this will be our first time in the area. Weve already made arrangements to visit some of the less travelled areas (Bhutan and North-East States of India), as well as hitting some of the more typical spots in India. Nicely said, we will be in the Himalayas for part of the time (and we've been there before as far as EBC in Tibet about 10 years ago).

      One option we are considering is spending up to a couple of weeks (14 days including the days we fly in and out of Kathmandu) doing some trekking; the second and third week in November. My foot is still not 100% post-surgery (and likley never will be 100%), so I do have to take care to avoid injury. We'ed probably want to spend a couple of days in Kathmandu, exploring and setting up the trek (arranging for a guide and porter at the trekking office, as well as transportation to and from the trailhead). This means we are probably looking at about a week to 10 days of trekking. Other than just seeing the place; #1 objective is seeing people, landscapes to photograph.

      Any thoughts as to which areas might be suitable for the; recommendations for accomodations in Tibet clothing for that time of year, etc. Well broken in, sturdy hiking boots, walking sticks, etc. Thoughts on tent trekking versus staying at local accomodation (might be leaning that way as this would help out the locals more), etc.


    • Volunteering as a teacher once in Nepal

      Nepal Jul 11, 2014 at 8:27 AM


      I'm planning on heading out to Nepal November time to explore and offer my services as an English teacher wherever I may end up. I don't want to pre-pay one of these companies to do so and wondered whether there are many opportunites to walk into schoools/communities and volunteer without pre-organising. Is this possible?

      Thanks in advance for any info :)

      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.

      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?

      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?

      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!!
