Re: Travel partner Annapurna trek May
As you are probably aware the end of April / Beginning of May is the tail end of the Spring Trekking Season, But having said that there should still be a fair amount of trekkers around.
To find Trek-Mates my best advice would be to head fro the Garden Restaurant at Pilgrims Guesthouse in North Thamel and take lunch or dinner or just pop in in the evening for a beer, (I wouldn’t choose to stay here however as I think the rooms are a bit overpriced for what they are) – I have often found like minded people there.
With your walking shoes, Ideally you should get a pair of waterproof lightweight boots (Gortex type) and a pair of gaiters as there is a high probability of you getting at least some rain in the afternoons given the time of year that you are trekking in.
For more details on what I have suggested browse the tip sections of my Nepal Page.
I hope that helps a little but If you need more info then feel free to drop me another line
Good Luck and Happy Travels
