    • Monastery stay in Nepal

      Nepal 5 hours ago

      hi all. I was hoping you could help me. My boyfriend is thinking about going to Nepal and staying in a buddihst monastery for two months. He is prepared to work there, teach english or do any sort of labour. He is looking for somewhere really traditional and remote, in the mountains. Is there anywhere that you know of which will accept him? And let him stay there? How would he approach them? Contact them before hand or just trun up? I will appreciate your help greatly. And any other advice you may have. Thanks so much. Rojiar

    • Paragliding - most experienced (and insured!) company and flight duration opinion

      Nepal Feb 22, 2015 at 12:32 PM

      Hi, does anyone have any experience of Avia Club Nepal – they have been recommended by the company organising our holiday in nepal and they say they are pioneers in the field – but ……?

      Also is it worthwhile paying the extra for an hour flight rather than 30 mins standard flight; 30 mins doesn’t sound very long but I can only guess? Thanks

      Nepal Feb 14, 2015 at 7:52 AM

      hello

      I will be visiting Nepal in 3rd week of June with family and kids. As I understand that it may not be a best weather in those days. What precautions we should take and what places should we visit during our 7 to 8 days stay to make best out of our trip?
      I shortlisted Pokhara, Nagarkot, Lumbini, Bhaktapur and Chitwan initially. considering the Monsoon factor, which places can be visited?

    • Everest Base Camp Trek Questions

      Mount Everest Feb 17, 2015 at 1:16 AM

      Hello

      I am starting this trek in April and really looking forward to it. I have lots of questions which i hope people can answer for me. im probably over thinking it a bit but no damage done i guess.

      What are the chances of not being able to trek because of weather on a particular day? (I arrive Kathmandu April 3 and fly out April 20)

      I don't have to book accommodation on the trail right? Just turn up? Is April peak season? Will accom be full if its peak season?

      If I wanted to make up a day is there an easier stage to do this (I guess lower down the easier to ascend 600m in a day)?

      Is there anything in particular that anyone has found really endeared them to the locals? Likewise, is there anything that a westerner may think nothing of, but would be very offensive to locals?

      Seems popular to acclimatize on day 3 Namche. If you are feeling fine is there any point doing this?

      The more I read about it, I wish I had at least another day or 2 on the trek, and I think I have decided to go to Kala Patthar and not actual base camp. Will I regret not going to the actual base camp?(from what I've read I don't think so)

      Did anyone take anything along the trek they wish they hadn't?

      When is it too late to get a porter or guide?

      thanks very much to anyone that can answer any of these question!
