i have recently been engaged in the thought of trekking to everest base camp. i have, however, no plan..excpt to book a flight to kathmandu and plan from there. i was wondering if this is do-able, especially at this time of year with the rainy season looming, and my arrival being around the 20th of may. i understand the trek to ebc takes about 17 days with a guided tour and can be fairly expensive.. is it possible to do a trek on my own or in a small group or with a private guide? andi what might that cost? i understand its possible to get all the gear i might need for under $200, but am unsure of total travelling time and cost of food and accomodation, and how the trip could be organized. its my birthday in a week and can think of no more beautiful way of spending it than on a trek to everest, any info is much appreciated! thanks :)
Which Sim card has coverage on Everest base camp trek?
Hello. I am looking for feedback on the feasibility of several short trekking options in Nepal in mid-November 2013.
My wife and I (around 30 years old, and expect to be relatively fit in November), have five trekking days in Nepal. We are contemplating several options below and are interested in how challenging the routes are in the time we propose, and how magnificent the the routes are for scenery and landscape.
For some context, we will have spent 9 days in Tibet, before driving to Kathmandu and then flying into Lukla the next day to start the trek. So we should have decent acclimatisation already (sleeping between 3500 - 4900 metres In Tibet).
Option A: Day 1 - (from Kathmandu fly to) Lukla to overnight Monjo; Day 2 - Monjo to Namche Bazaar to o/n Mong; Day 3 - Mong to o/n Luza; Day 4 - Luza through the mountains to o/n Phurte or Namche Bazaar; Day 5 - return to o/n Lukla (fly out next morning)
Option B: Day 1 - (from Kathmandu fly to) Lukla to o/n Monjo; Day 2 - Monjo to o/n Namche Bazaar area; Day 3 - Namche Bazaar to o/n Thame; Day 4 Thame mountain route through Kongde and o/n Longde or Toktok; Day 5 - return to o/n Lukla (fly out next morning)
Option C: Day 1 - (from Kathmandu fly to) Lukla to Phakding; Day 2 - Phakding to Namche Bazaar; Day 3 and 4 - chill out around Namche Bazaar; Day 5 - return to o/n Lukla (fly out next morning)
Any feedback would be appreciated =)

i wanted to know, if anybody can share experience of trekking (or maybe even pictures) in Nepal during monsoon season. My only possible time slot is the month of july. I read a lot of disturbed view which is quite likely when it rains... but how bad is it really? does it get better, lets say above 4500m?
Actually i have only this month and i m staying in india at the moment so i could save the money flighing in from europe... I always wanted to go to the himalayan region but now i struggeling a little bit because i dont know if its worth going, spending money and not seeing anything.
i hope you can help me out!
Thx in advance!
From some internet research I understand that there is a direct comfortable bus to Chitwan National Park (Sauraha) from Kathmandu, in addition to local buses.
Does that bus go via Daman? If not, how can we go via Daman with public transport, even if it involves change of bus. Where to find the bus in Kathmandu? Cost? I guess one may also trek Kathmandu-Daman but we would like to take a bus.
Secondly, while returning from Chitwan National Park to Kathmandu, I am contemplating to do the Manakamana cable car. Any suggestions how to do that? Ideally, I would like to break the Chitwan-KTM journey for that, i.e. leave Chitwan early morning, do the cable car, and reach Kathmandu by evening. Is that possible? How to get the bus from Chitwan (Sauraha) to Kurintar (foot of the cable car) and then another bus from Kurintar to Kathmandu?
