      Christmas in KTM?

      Nepal Jul 13, 2016 at 1:57 AM

      Has anyone spent Xmas in KTM and if so what is there to do? Are there bars and restaurants with music, jazz, rock? We won't be trekking so are looking for entertainment in the city. Good places to eat? Hear music, etc.

    • Should I book through a 'western' company or a local one?

      Mount Everest Jul 25, 2016 at 12:36 AM

      Hi,
      My boyfriend and I are planning to do Mount Everest base camp next year and have been looking into a few different companies and the price differences are quiet large. I was wondering is it best to pay the extra few $1000 or would it be better to go local and book with a Nepalese company?
      One company we were looking at was at least $2000 more each than others and we were wondering if this was necessary. We want to do the climb properly and safely but we are not precious, we camp in the bush regularly so we don't mind about roughing it.
      I would love to hear about your experiences!

      Annapurna Trek

      Pokhara Jul 7, 2016 at 1:14 AM

      Hi there!

      I am traveling to Nepal in October and due to time times I am only about to do a short trek (less then a week)

      I was looking at the Annapurna Panorma/ Poon Hill etc

      Should I book with a tour agency before I leave or is it cheaper to do it once you arrive with a local tour agency? I found a 5 day hike for $625aud. What would the normal cost be if booking on arrival to Kathmandu or Pokhara?

      Thanks!

      Hello dear mountain lovers,
      planing on hiking the EBC around 22/05/16. Is anyone else interested in joining these dates?
      I am planing to take a jeep from KTM for 30 usd to Salleri and to hike from there to Lukla (2-3 days hike).
      I found a guide which costs around 15-20 usd a person (including also his living costs); the price will be reduced the bigger the group is.
      Anyone interested in sharing costs for the guide?

      Hi ! we are a couple of guys thinking about doing the EBC trek in May this year.
      And we want to do it "on our own terms" so no organised trip.
      But do you have any suggestions on when/how to get in touch with any guides?
      should we just figure it out in kathmandu or is it wiser to fix it before?

      Trekking Nepal

      Nepal Feb 13, 2016 at 10:53 AM

      Any suggestions on remote, challenging, low tourist area treks in Nepal? I have 3 weeks to work with and already have a guide in place. We had planned the Dolpo, but it's just way too expensive. We hiked the Nar Phu Valley/Tilicho Lake two years ago and encountered less than 10 tourists the whole time. I'm hoping to have a similar experience this time. My guide has some ideas, but thought someone here might have a wonderful trip idea to share. Thanks for any input!

    • Further than EBC

      Mount Everest Jan 28, 2016 at 6:50 AM

      First off, I'm not a mountaineer nor a skilled climber and I have no delusion of reaching the summit :D

      I was wanting to trek to base camp, but from reading I'm worried that I'm going to be left craving for something more adventurous.

      I'm guessing next is icefall and camp 1.
      1.) Do you need lots of experience going there?
      2.) How much more would it cost?

      Thanks in advance :)

    • Hiring a porter to carry things from Namche to Chukkung while trekking 3 Passes?

      I was wondering if it is possible (probably) and also safe to hire a porter in Namche Bazar or maybe already lukla to carry some gear to Chukkung, while I carry on to hike the 3 Passes. Later I'd pick up the gear in Chukkung for the remainder of the trip so it would have to be stored away in some lodge (which I'd be happy to stay at of course).
      Would this be feasable?
